Hello

Please I need help with what formula to use for the below logic:

1. I usually insert quotation numbers of quotations that are not yet approved by clients - just to keep track (below image - 1)

2. when approved, I insert the quotation details and the other project details on the other sheet, the project list (below image - 2)

3. The formatting I want is for the row in the first sheet (image -1) to be highlighted in green when the quotation number in this sheet (column B) is found in the 2nd sheet's (image -2) column L

In other words, if I insert "SOF-2021-Q-001" in column L of the 2nd sheet, I want row 17 in the first sheet to be highlighted in green

Can someone help please?


Thank you in advance

select the range in sheet1 Select a larger area since you will be adding numbers
Click on conditional formatting
select new rule
select use formula to determine which cells to format

use this formula change the range and sheet name as need to fit your data
=ISNUMBER(MATCH(B2,Sheet2!$L$2:$L$16,0))

select your formatting
press OK

If you need to later you can go back to conditional formatting and edit the range it applies to if you add more records and leave the area you selected.
