    Conditional Formatting with Not work

    Hi there,

    I have set up conditional formatting in the attached document so when a cell has a certain response, it determines what goes into other cells. That is:

    If No is selected in F16, then a No response is automatically put into cells F17, F18, etc and all cells highlight red.

    The red highlight works fine - but the automatic response of No is not working under conditional formatting. Im at my wits end as to why its not working!!!

    I have provided further notes in the attached document

    I am assuming the moderators are satisfied with the post now? (title seems ok, and I can only see it in 1 forum)

    But conditional formatting wont change the value of a cell it will only change font/color etc

    =IF(F16=No,No,)

    is evaluated as true or false in conditional formatting, it doesnt evaluate to "No",""

    you can put =if($f$16="No","No","") in the cells

    Or use a macro to detect a change in f16 and change the rest of the cells in the range!

    Thanks for that. I have tried putting that it in the cell - but as the document is active - reponses can be amended - which deletes the format in the cell.

    Im new to macros. How would i write the macro?
