Right now I have a condition that if the value is less than80 then use RED fill. My problem is whenthe cell value is 79.8; because of rounding, it displays 80 and no REDfill. The cell format is number with zerodecimal places. I want the cell fill toreflect no fill.<o:p></o:p>

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

Hi, welcome to MrExcel,

You need to see the difference between the DISPLAY and the REAL VALUE.

When I apply conditional format "lower than 80", it doesn't matter what the display of that cell is.
I've put 79.8 in a cell, set the NumberFormat to Number with 0 decimals and it's still red.
Click in any cell and write =A1 (change A1 to your cellreference). What do you see?

kind regards,
Erik
