    Place Border Around Cell IF Value TRUE

    Hello,

    Not sure if you folks can understand what I'm trying to do, but I am looking to place a border around a cell when another statement is true. So in my attachment, I have the "Appropriate?" column. This column is a drop-down with options: Yes or No. If the answer is "Yes", there will be a statement in the cells under column D "Note" prompting the user to "Enter business justification" in column C, "Business Justification".

    So in addition to the "Note", I would like the cell under "Business Justification" to also have a thick red border so that it reminds the user that information is required. How do I go about doing that?

    Also, I could be getting ahead of myself, but could I even go so far and have that cell mandatory that if it were left blank, the user could not go on further?

    Thank you!!

    Have you checked out the conditional formatting functionality?

    I think you're going to need VBA for a thick border. CF only provides thin or broken. And the mandatory part would need VBA, too.
