In cell “I4” for example I have a drop down with a selection of words describing document types. Conditional formatting is set to use a formula (=$I4="Invoice"), to determine which cells to format, changing the range; ($A$731:$L$731,$AD$728,$D$732:$D$736,$E$732:$E$733,$A$7:$E$9,$G$7:$AZ$9,$A$4:$AZ$6,$A$10:$AZ$726), to a specified colour.

In cell “T4” is the quantity of the item purchased which has no conditional formatting other than it’s relationship to “I4”. I’m hoping that when inventory is “0” on that item, I can enter B/O and have the cell range change to a different colour.

Do I need to alter the conditional formatting rule in “I4”, or create a separate rule in “T4”?

Hope someone can shed light on this one.
Thanks.
 

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Select all cells where you want the conditional colour to apply and then insert conditional formatting
