    Conditional formating based on numbers and texts

    Hi Team,

    i have coloumn A with Different status like Open, closed, available etc. Coloumn B have numbers.

    i am looking for a formula in condition formating for coloumn B.

    If the cell value in coloumn B is 2 or more, the same cell should be highlighted in Green.
    If the cell value in coloumn B is 1, the same cell should be highlighted in Yellow.
    If the cell value in coloumn B is 0, the same cell should be highlighted in Amber.
    If the cell value in coloumn B is less than 0, the same cell should be highlighted in Red.

    If the cell value in coloumn A is "Available", cell in coloumn B should be highlighted in Amber.

    Please help

    use formula based conditional formatting i.e. b1>=2 GREEN


    googling "Conditional formating based on numbers and texts " would have helped
    Hope this helps

    Sometimes its best to start at the beginning and learn VBA & Excel.

    Please dont ask me to do your work for you, I learnt from Reading books, Recording, F1 and Google and like having all of this knowledge in my head for the next time i wish to do it, or wish to tweak it.
