    I have just looked into using this function. I can easily use it for a "cell value", but am confused with the "function is".

    I have a cell that has a formula in it which returns either PASS or REPEAT. I want to conditionally format (with another color) when the formula returns REPEAT.

    Probably very simple...

    If your formula is in cell B1, then use the following formula for conditional formatting

    =B1="Repeat"

    and provide the associated formatting

    Is there any way to copy just the conditional formatting and not the formulas in the cell? The cells are obviously not near each other...
