# Excel 2007 : Excel formula that assigns color

1. ## Excel formula that assigns color

Good day everybody,

I'm a new user and very happy that I have joined this forum.

I would like to express my thank to the formum administrator for accepting me as a new member.

I had an enquiry over an issu and did not know how to solve it. i have 3 columns which required multiplication formula in between the 3 numbers in each cell and the results to be shown in the 4th column. my enquiry is that how can i show the result along with the number result. for example
3*3*3 = 27 and the color assinged is green. I want to show the result with the color automatically. what would be the formula which i need to use in the result cell.

I would appreciate your assistance and help.

So, in A1 B1 and C1 you have 3, 3 and 3. In D1, you don't just want 27 to appear, you want it to display as:

3*3*3 = 27

The formula for that would be:

=A1&"*"&B1&"*"&C1&" = "&(A1*B1*C1)

Now, what do you mean "the color assigned is green"? You want this cell to turn green on itself for some reason? What is the basis for Excel deciding this cell deserves to be turned green?

If there is no criteria, and you just want the cell green, use the FILL COLOR icon and just paint it green.
