Hi all,

Hopefully a clear and easy question.

If the cell value >0 I want a green up arrow / trangle
And
If the cell value <0 I want a red down arrow / triangle
And
If the cell value is 0 then nothing shows (this is optional)

How do I get this to work in conditonal formatting ?


I've tried the Icon sets in Excel but it's doing the opposite to what I need.
I saw a video that used it but I cannot get it working in Excel 365

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.

The closest I could get this to work was by 'tricking' Excel to use the red arrow on any number less than -1E-10 (this may work for you particularly if you are no t working with very small fractions of whoel numbers)

I did exactly above and it didn't work until I reversed the order of the icons :)

Thanks
