Hello Everyone

I have a cell that I’ve put some conditional formatting into

This cell has a value in it that comes in from a link.

The value is compared to the value in another cell, I need the formatting to change if there is a variance more then + or – the number 6.

Any help?

Thanks

Can Excel fill bagel flavors?
You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

Do you mean with variance maybe difference?

If so try this.

Put in CF Formula is

=OR(A1-A2 >6,A2-A1 >6)

You have the CF formattting in cell A1 in this case.

Hi,

I think the formula
=OR(A1-A2 >6,A2-A1 >6)

can be made shorter like this
=ABS(A1-A2)>6
enhancing your calculation-speed

kind regards,
Erik
