    Conditional Formatting and Highlighting

    I have a bunch of conditional formatting set up on one of my spreadsheets to turn a number red if its higher than say 2.

    The ones that turn red are a reminder to do a certain job task. I would like to manually highlight that cell(yellow) to tell me and others that that task has been completed.

    But because I have it conditionally formatted, it wont allow me to hightlight the cell. Is there anyway to manually hightlight the cell on top of a cell that has conditional formatting??

    THanks for all your help!

    do you enter anything into the sheet to show that task completed ?
    you could use that to set the yellow

    CF will over-rule any manual formatting you do to a cell. Perhaps you could put the warning an an adjacent cell, and have that cell display something as the reminder?
    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

    Based on your last post in this thread, its apparent that you are satisfied with the solution(s) you've received and have solved your question, but you haven't marked your thread as "SOLVED". I will do it for you this time.
