Hi there,

I have a spreadsheet that has values in the end column that read Addition, Deletion or No Change. I am trying to get the row cells in Column A to shade red, green or yellow depending on the value of the cells in Column I. I have tried the folllowing:

="IF(I4=No Change)"

I chose the fill to be green for this but when I click OK nothing happens but I do not get any error messages.

Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance

Steve

Hi Steve

Try;

Code:
=I4="No Change"

That should work :)
