    Re: change background color based on the value

    Select the range C2:C5

    Conditional Formatting
    New Rule
    Use a formula to determine...

    3 rules rwquired, one for each colour

    =(C3="OK")
    format as red

    =(C3="PENDING")
    format as yellow

    =(C3="NOT OK")
    format as green

    P.S. Decide if you're gonna spell OK as OK or OKAY, looks a bit tacky spelling it two different ways.

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.
