    Conditional format based on 2 text values

    Hi.

    I have a table i am conditionally formatting.

    I have set it up so if it says 'training' the cell formats to a yellow background
    If it says 'match' the cell changes to grey background

    However, if it has training & match i want it to have a grey background, but unfortunately it gives it a yellow background.

    Please can someone help?

    Thanks.
    Adam.

    Change the rule for match to CONTAINS instead of EQUALS.

    Or move the match rule above the training rule and set to stop if true.
