    Question Conditional Formatting with multiple conditions (Excel 2010)

    I'm trying to create a formula in excel that checks two separate columns before applying the color change to one of those columns. I see tutorials on how to do this in Excel 2007, but have yet to find an easy way of doing this in 2010.

    For an accurate example: In Column D we check "N" if someone is missing a specific document. In Column N of the same row, we specify what documents they are missing, but if nothing, we input "Complete".

    What I want to figure out how to do is: If Column D says "N" and Column N of the same row says "Complete", I want Column N to use the Light Red Fill with Dark Red Text.

    Can anyone help or direct me on how manually input this code in the future?

    welcome to the forum

    It would be easier to help if you upload a sample workbook, but try this...
    1. highlight the range you want to apply the conditional formatting to
    2. on the home tab, styles, select CF
    3. select new rule, select use formula
    4. enter =and($D2="N",$N2="Complete")
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    you could do this:
    Select column n, goto conditional formatting, new rule, use formula,
    =And(N1="Complete",D1="N")
    format,fill - light red,font -dark red,ok,ok

    not sure where CF is in 2010, but the formula should still work

    Hope this helps
    A picture may be worth a thousand words, BUT, a sample Workbook is worth a thousand screenshots!

    This worked perfectly! Not sure why the other code didn't. Thank you both anyway!

    You are welcome

    If you started your range at N1 and did not change the ranges in FDibbins' code to $D1..$N1 it would always be checking the NEXT row for the conditions, not the current row..
    the code is basically the same otherwise
