Hi there

Can anyone help to start me off in the right direction

I need conditional formatting to be active for the Damaged Column but checking the name column,Age and Damaged Column

ie.
If Damaged column value is 5% or more then colour cell red
OR
If Damaged column value is <5% then colour cell Green
OR
If Name column value = Line22 AND Age is <20 then colour cell Orange
OR
If Name Column value = Babcock AND Age is <20 AND Age is <20 then colour cell Blue
OR
If name coloumn value = Babcock AND Age is >35 then colour cell Purple

I just cant figure out how to code the conditional formatting to do all this for the entire column, can do it for a row, but as I have 1200 rows!!

Any help greatly appreciated
Mike

what version of excel
and you want the whole row to change colour

now because of
If Damaged column value is <5% then colour cell Green
most of those row would be green

so how does the name and age over ride those % value rules
babcock403%Purple due to 40 Upper age Limit

BUT the value is less than 5% - so green

you need to have the rules unique or which ones take a priority
