    Conditionally format based on identical column values, provided adjacent cells meet cond.

    I have a very large set of data. I need to automatically highlight identical sets of cells provided that each corresponding cell to the left is greater than a certain number.
    For example, below if every asset test date for a given work order number is greater than 12/31/2018 then the entire 'set' of work order numbers gets highlighted, else none of them get highlighted.

    So, for below the first row work order number 20409863 , NONE of the 20409863 cells get highlighted because just one test date doesn't meet the requirement.
    20410401 gets highlighted because it's date is greater than 12/31/2018 and there's just one asset for this particular w/o number.
    20410486 is same situation as the first example, so none of the cells with value 20410486 get highlighted.
    26817574 - every adjacent cell next test date is greater than the requirement, so every cell value 26817574 will be highlighted (green color)

    6/22/2017 20409863
    1/19/2021 20409863
    1/19/2021 20409863
    1/11/2027 20410401
    12/20/2025 20410486
    2/5/2017 20410486
    11/9/2020 20410486
    5/7/2026 26817574
    5/7/2026 26817574
    12/7/2026 26817574

    Assuming date is from A1, value is from B1
    Try CF formula for B1 then copy/paste format down:

    Thanks ! it hasn't worked for me yet, maybe I'm doing something wrong. Re-thinking it, I should probably skip the formatting deal and just choose an empty cell to the right side and return a value in text like 'close' if it's true. 'open' if it's false

    I think I understand most of your formula except the 10^10, what is that ?

    10^10 is number 1 following by 10 zero, meaning very big value, to make sure bigger than 12/31/2018
