    Linking cell color to dropdown list values

    Another question:

    Is it possible to link a cell background color to a dropdown list value? Or perhaps to make all cells containing certain values to become a certain color automatically?

    Sorry about that, I'm using Excel 2007. Conditional formatting did the trick.

    Thanks a lot!
