Hello,

I am trying to format one cell based on three other cells meeting their own conditions. For example, A2, A4, & A6 are conditioned to turn green as long as they are lower than the numbers of their adjacent cells A3, A5, & A7. I need A1 to also turn green once these initial cells have met the requirments.

Welcome to the Board

Conditional Formatting can not run off of the formatting of other cells (or the Conditional Formatting of other cells).
You would just need to create a Conditional Formatting rule for cell A1 that checks ALL those conditions.
