Hi, I have a computer inventory sheet that I need to update as a justification for next year's purchases. This company I work in still uses a few Pentium I and Pentium II PCs. I want to use conditional formatting that would apply for the whole row and the criteria (Processor Used?) is in Column K. My data range is between A4 to BF156.
To be precise, if I say Pentium I or Pentium II in column K it should change the formatting of the whole row where the Pentium I PC belongs.

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

Hi Ken,

You need a formula that returns a logical "TRUE" or "FALSE".
If cell K4 contains the text like "Pentium I", "Pentium II" ,"Celeron", "Pentium IV", etc., try something like this :

Select all the rows and the columns A:K
and use conditional formatting with this formula :
=OR($K4="Pentium I" ,$K4="Pentium II")

Regards,

Hi Ken,
In that case I would use LEFT :

=LEFT($K4,7)="Pentium"

Hope this helps...
