Hi,

I am completely stuck on figuring out how to do this one. not sure if I am just makig it way too complicated.

I am wanting to highlight the cell A1, if O1 does not match the value of R1, but P1 does match the value of R1.

I also need to adapt this so there will be more cells that need to match the value of R1.

For example, highlight the cell A1, if L1 does not equal the value of R1, but P1, O1, N1, and M1 do match the value of R1.

I hope that makes sense :S

I am using Excel 2010!

Thanks!

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.
So I have something that should work. I tried it with what I think is your criteria and it worked fine.
I also have Excel 2010. So select cell A1 go to the ribbon - select home - conditional formatting - new rule
select use a formula to determine which cells to format.
Enter the formula below and choose your highlighting preference.
Good luck.

Code:
 =OR(AND(O1<>R1,P1=R1),AND(L1<>R1,P1=R1,O1=R1,N1=R1,M1=R1))
