    conditional formatting with specific range and color code

    Hi All,
    Hope everyone is having a good holiday weekend.
    I think/hope this is the last help I need with the formulas (considering I've been working on this for a while now, lol)...
    With the sample I have attached:
    21J008 tab (page 1) (I highlighted it in green) the person will input in the weight under the columns D or J respectively.
    It will auto populate below on page 2 Column F52:F90 (I highlighted it green) , there I have columns with percentages 11%-22% columns J-N respectively.

    What I need the formula to do is:
    With the inputted weight calculate which percentage its closer to and color the cell depending on if its 11% (one color), 15 & 18% (2nd color), 20% (3rd color), and 22% (4th color)
    -Optional bonus if you can get the Column F,G,H,I 52:90 to highlight a neutral (5th color) if the number is greater than 0 in Column F52:F90.

    Thank you for any help I can get. I am just so amazed how helpful and wonderful everyone is in this forum...

    Select range for color 1 (J52:J90) and in Conditional format, select:
    New rule,
    Use a formula to determine which cells will be formatted,
    In box "Format values in which this formula is true", paste this formula:
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Select ranges for next colors (K52:L90 etc) and repeat steps above changing the first instance of J52 only to K52 and so on.

    For the 5th color, select range F52:H90, repeat steps above and use this formula:
    $F52>0

    Good luck!

    Re: conditional formatting with specific range and color code

    Hi, so apparently I was tired and fell asleep before I could try it...
    so far as I'm trying the percentages formula its working, haven't finished inputting in the rest...

    That being said, I tried to do the formula for the 5th color and that one isn't working...any suggestions?

    Estevaoba said:

    $F52>0
    It's just inadvertently missing an "=" The formula should be:
    =$F52>0

    With that change it worked for me on your sample workbook.
