    How to Conditional Format Data in One Table Based on Values from Another?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm trying figure out how to conditionally format the data in one table based on the criteria specified in another table on a different worksheet.

    The Table I'm trying to format has a series of Products and Volumes that'll be available on different dates.
    Table 1.jpg

    The Criteria table has each product and a corresponding Key Data.
    Table 2.jpg

    All I want to be able to do is have the cell corresponding to the criteria to be highlighted but can't for the life of me figure out how to do it.
    If it makes a difference I'm working offAttachment 338501 a Mac. Excel Version 2011 14.4.3
    Appreciate any help

    conditional formatting gets pretty tricky because of the way absolute vs. relative references translate...

    the formula I think you're looking for is actually:

    and it applies to $b$3:$k$9

    as in the attached.
