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

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.

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
