Hi All

May I ask the board how do I extact text/nos if the cell has met a conditional format. For example if I had in cell A1 the word horse highlighted in bright green as it had met a previous conditional format then how would I extract that word and place it in cell A2. Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards

schematically:

=if(conditional_format_condition,"Horse","Something else")

...if that's not enough, give us a few more details

Hi Paddy D

Perfect solution, apologies for asking it is just that my brain is presently addled, I should really take a break. Top class service once again.

Kind Regards
