Excel Facts

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

highest value should be selected from column B and column D(i.e b31:b41 and d31:d41)

Great. thanks.

On a 2016 system...

Select the range in column B, activate conditional formatting. And run:

Top/Bottom Rules | Top 10 Items

Adjust the relevant box to 3 and choose the color you want in the adjacent box.

And repeat the foregoing procedure for the range in column D.

assume left hand side is volume of call option and right hand side percentage is volume of put option.we have to select highest volume from both columns.with TOP 3 conditional formatting and selecting both columns, it highlight top 3 values but in single color for all cells. i want different color for 1st, 2nd and third.
