Hello guys

I am getting a few problems in my sheet. 1. Rows 5 & 7 are matched but selected rows are colored as rule applied in conditional formatting, which it shouldn’t. 2. Row 6 is matched but it is showing Debit / Credit Not Matching.

Otherwise, all other remaining rows are correct.

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

Earlier I had selected the whole sheet. But after selecting this range F2:M100 and then after applying the rule I got it partly correct. Still the row 6 is showing Not Matching whereas it has to show matched.

as the formula starts at row2 , so does the selection

in a new column row 2 put the formula, and copy to the same range , see if you get true false correctly
=AND($O2<>0,ISEVEN(COLUMN(B2)))

see if you get TRUE False

Column O is fixed with the $
BUT B2 will move

So only ROW 6 & 8 can be possibly TRUE as the the others have a zero in column O

then ISEVEN(COLUMN(B2)))
Means only , B is Even , so thats going to be column F as thats the start of selection
then every other column F,H,J,L etc

so its working as expected

BUT WHAT do you want to highlight and why ?

Hi Rajesh1960,

The highlit cells were set using manual fill, not Conditional Formatting. Are the ones in yellow the ones you want highlighted apart from row 6?

Row 6 will be highlighted because O6 is not zero, it contains 0.000000000000073 so you may want to use the ROUND function.

I want the row containing amounts which are not matching to be highlighted. I have corrected it but now my only question is why is the 6th row highlighted even when the sum of the amount is 0.

.
The reason for the highlight is I can make the required changes if there is a mistake in the total of that particular row. Like, If I correct the amount in cell G8 from 9000 to 10000 the formatting disappears.

You are right. Round function solved the problem. Thanks.
