    Re: How to apply conditional formatting across sheets

    1st, pretty much none of your numbers are actually numbers/values, they are text that just looks like a number (just try adding 1 to them, in another cells). You will need to convert them/make them numbers

    2nd, you cannot compare numbers (even after you have converted the text to numbers) to text - which is what you have on sheet2....<1

    Where is this data coming from?
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Re: How to apply conditional formatting across sheets

    Lets take this in stages...

    1. make sure that all your headings match (eg make "Big Bold Red" = "Sea Big Bold Red")

    2. are all your tests being done with the ranges in sheet2? (eg 60-120...38-43 etc) Again, this is text, and would need to somehow be converted to 2 seperate numbers for the comparison

    This is what I have so far...
    to find the value from sheet2...
    =INDEX(SPECIFICATION!$B$7:$E$39,MATCH(PRODUCTS!C$9,SPECIFICATION!$A$7:$A$39,0),MATCH(PRODUCTS!$B10,SPECIFICATION!$B$6:$E$6,0))
    (this is returning <1)
    To convert the "number" in sheet1 to a real number...
    =--SUBSTITUTE(C10,",",".")

    Here is where I am trying to head.

    lets say that Spec sheet A16 was DO, instead of A17, then to do the CF, I would use this formula...
    =INDEX(SPECIFICATION!$B$7:$E$39,MATCH(PRODUCTS!C$9,SPECIFICATION!$A$7:$A$39,0),MATCH(PRODUCTS!$B10,SPECIFICATION!$B$6:$E$6,0))<--SUBSTITUTE(C10,",",".")

    2. Yes SPECIFICATION sheet is the reference ranges for the test.
    yes, I got that

    What I meant was - are you testing (where applicable) against cells containg ranges like 60-120 or 38-43. As I said, these are text entries. Would it be possible to split those into 2 seperate cells/columns? In other words, each category in the Spec sheet will have 2 columns
