I still have 2007 and am trying to use a formula to pull a match from another worksheet but 2007 will not allow "AnotherWorksheet!"

Is there way like Vlookup or Match that I can use to look at worksheet 2 for a match and if so highlight cell in worksheet 1?

Thanks, Steve

Hello,

If you put the formula into a cell somewhere else on the same sheet as the conditional formatting, can you not then reference this cell?

the other sheet, can you select the value set and name that range then use the named range

Yes. Unfortunately the data I am trying to compare it to is on the other worksheet.

I have a name range but it's on another worksheet and when I point to "Worksheet2!" it will not allow it.

Hello,

another option:

If in Sheet2 cell A1 you have YES and you want to highlight cell A1 in sheet 1 if Sheet 2 cell A1 = YES:

In Sheet 1, Cell B1 enter Sheet2!A1

In Sheet 1, cell A1, select FORMAT --> CONDITIONAL FORMATTING, change Cel Value is to formula is, and enter =INDIRECT(B1)="YES", format as required.

Does this solve your problem?

But in conditional formatting, you wouldn't point to "Worksheet2!"
You'd point to "Name"

Whatever you named the range.

MyRange is a named range referring to Sheet2!$A$1
In conditional formatting on Sheet1 you can use
=A1=MyRange
