Hello,

I'm trying to find a way to highlight cells that do not contain either a y, n, or o. I've tried conditional format but can seem to figure out how to have excel search for all 3 letters.


thanks

Do the letters appear in the cell by themselves, or among other text like "always", or "never", or "hallow"
