    conditional formatting for 3 columns (?)

    I'm not sure if this achieved using conditional formatting but it's my only guess on how it might be done.

    I want the relationship between my values in column A and column B to give me a result in column C.

    I have %'s in column A and B and if my %'s are higher in column B than the corresponding row in column A I want column C to give me a "YES" response and be highlighted. If B<=A I want the corresponding row in column C to say "NO".

    How would I achieve this? Thanks.

    To get "Yes or "No" Values in the cells you need a formula, e.g. in C2 copied down

    =IF(B2>A2,"Yes","No")

    of course that will give "No" if the two %s are equal. You could change the formula to all signify "Equal" i.e.

    =IF(B2>A2,"Yes",IF(A2<B2,"No","Equal"))
