    Exclamation conditional format formula

    Hi,

    I am aiming to highlight table row A17 to Q17 based on F17="Finished" and (L17="Finished" or L17 is empty "").


    Any help appreciated

    Re: conditional format formula

    Select the cells A17 to Q17b and launch the CF dialog to create a new rule. Use this formula:

    =AND($F17="Finished",OR($L17="Finished",$L17=""))

    Thus:

    =OR(AND($F17="Finished",$L17=""),AND($F17="Finished",$L17="Started"))

    Re: conditional format formula

    can this be simplified as the first 2 ranges are the same

    =SUMIFS(G18:G134,P18:P134,A3,F18:F134,"Started")+SUMIFS(G18:G134,P18:P134,A3,F18:F134,"Expected")+SUMIFS(G18:G134,P18:P134,A3,L18:L134,"Started")

    Re: conditional format formula

    I suppose it depends if you think your formula is simpler!!! I'm not really sure it is. I think it would require more processing as it uses arrays.
