    Changing colors of cells based on other cells

    I need this one spoon-fed to me. I can't seem to get it right in the conditional formatting.

    I have a range of cells, B1 to B4 (with check boxes). All of them have a default value of false. If the box is checked, the value of the cell turns to true.

    What conditional formatting do I place in B5 so that B5 turns to red fill if any of B1 to B4 are false?

    Thanks

    Select B5 and invoke Conditional Formatting.. choose Formula Is from the dropdown and enter =MATCH(FALSE,B1:B4,0)

    click format and choose Red from pattern tab.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
