    Conditional formatting Vloolup/Match inside to change Colour

    Good afternoon

    I have been looking on the net to use conditional formatting Cant seem to find the right guide

    I am trying to get Column A to look up its self the truck number and match it to Column j and M and going on the cell next to it the colour would change
    Green for PIK Red for REL

    I have tried to use =$N3="PIK" which was working Then I remember some times we have a truck that is not on the list so we add it in e.g. Truck 14A Truck3A in Column A

    which then bugs out =$N3="PIK" and it changes some of the colours

    I think I need to use a vlookup or a Match

    Any help would be great

    1. Select cell A1.
    2. Create the first formatting rule (green) using this formula: =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,$J$3:$K$27,2,0)="PIK",VLOOKUP(A1,$M$3:$N$27,2,0)="PIK")
    3. Set the Applies To field to =$A:$A.
    4. Create the second formatting rule (red) using this formula: =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A1,$J$3:$K$27,2,0)="REL",VLOOKUP(A1,$M$3:$N$27,2,0)="REL")
    5. Set the Applies To field to =$A:$A.

    All done. You will have to delete all your attempted rules first, or they will interfere with the results.

    Good afternoon AliGW

    You are the best did not know you could do 2 vlookups with inside the 1 formula
    After getting this to work on my sample book I have changed all the cells to match my main sheet
    =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(B1,'Pick order'!$L$4:$M$28,2,0)="REL",VLOOKUP(B1,'Pick order'!$O$4:$P$28,2,0)="REL")

    Thanks again for all your help
