Is it possible to build an if statement that would return something like this;

If(A1=A2, "cell background is grey", if(A1>A2, "cell background red", "cell background is green").

of course the items in quote are where i need the help, is something like this possible. I know you can set-up formatting for colors based upon bracketed / non bracketed, but that would not apply to this scenario as there are no brackets.

any help would be great.

thanks
Sean

Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

Try conditional formatting. Menu > Format > Conditional Formatting
