    Question IF cell E3="yes", then F3 turns a colour

    Hi, this is something so simple that I have forgotten how to do it.
    I want F3 to turn yellow if someone selects "Yes" from a drop down list in cell E3, then F3 has no fill once data is entered into it. And F3 turns Black if E3= no selected from the list. Or F3 turns red if E3 contains "TBC"

    so in summary,

    if E3="Yes", then F3 conditional format to Yellow until data is entered in it.
    if E3="No", then F3 conditional format to Black
    if E3="TBC", then E3 & F3 conditional format to Red until E3 is changed to
    "Yes" or "No" at a later time.

    Thanks in Advance for the help

    Hi,

    Easy one! Go to Format -> Conditional Formating, and select "Formula is", and put in =E3="Yes", and select the yellow background.

    Go to Add>> to repeat for the different selections/colours.

    You can also add your dropdown list by going to Data -> Validation, and selecting List to put in your choices of Yes/No/TBC, and allow blanks.

    Hope that helps!

    Thumbs up Re: IF cell E3="yes", then F3 turns a colour

    Thanks Davidwazza, I knew it was simple, but embarrased I had forgotten. It worked of course...

    How about if a form control tick box is ticked to have an effect in a different cell ?

    Format control in G3 is Checked = Yes so I3 turns green
    Format control in H3 is Checked = Yes so I3 turns Black
