I would like to use conditional formatting in cell D18. If D18 value is >= +/-0.0050 shade the cell red
 

Excel Facts

Shade all formula cells
To shade all formula cells: Home, Find & Select, Formulas to select all formulas. Then apply a light fill color.

try selecting cell D18 and then insert the conditional format. Maybe one of these?
Code:
=ABS(D18)>=0.005
or
=OR(D18<=-0.005,D18>=0.005)

Well, select range D18:D22 and then apply the conditional format to the whole range in a single operation. As a cell reference, use whatever cell is active. So, if you're on cell D18, use that in the conditional format formula: if you're on cell D22, use that: Excel will apply it to all the cells in a relative fashion. cheers
