My brother (SJC) and I (DWC) play Sudoku and compete to see who takes the least time to complete. We've been doing this for years and have been recording the results on a daily basis on an excel sheet. The times are placed in columns V and W on the row for the day's scores. Column W for the day is conditionally formatted red if the time in W is greater than that of the one in V, or green the if it is less. Something happened recently to corrupt the sheet's conditional formatting. I set all this up years ago when I was much younger and now I'm now no longer able to figure out how to reconstruct the formatting. I would appreciate help from anyone who could do or assist me in this effort. Thanks!

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Can you post a sample of your data.

MrExcel has a tool called “XL2BB” that lets you post samples of your data that will allow us to copy/paste it to our Excel spreadsheets, so we can work with the same copy of data that you are. Instructions on using this tool can be found here: XL2BB Add-in

Note that there is also a "Test Here” forum on this board. This is a place where you can test using this tool (or any other posting techniques that you want to test) before trying to use those tools in your actual posts.
