    Conditional Formatting based upon another cell

    Hi,

    I have a list of part numbers down column C and the associated part descriptions down column D.

    I have conditional formatting set up for column C so that if the part number contains “KEY”, the cell is highlighted.

    I want the matching descriptions in column D to be highlighted as well but don’t know how to set up the conditional formatting to do this based on the value of another cell.

    How would I set the conditional formatting to do this?

    Thanks very much

    Dave

    Select the range col C and D
    Use following CF =isnumber(search("key",$C1))
    format as required
    use FIND if you need a case sensitive function
