    Conditional formatting in Column B based on Value in Column A

    I've searched all over the internet and cannot find a solution to how conditional formatting can be applied to my problem. Any help/guidance is greatly appreciated!

    My goal is to highlight any cell in Column B in green if the value in Column A of the same row contains the word "Total".

    If it is only "Total" in A

    Select B1

    select CF

    =A1="Total"

    Apply formatting

    Applies to B1:B100
