    Conditional Formatting based on text in previous cells

    Hello,

    I am looking for a formula for Conditional Formatting with the following

    If Cells A1,A2 and/or A3 contain the text "No" then cell A4 must contain the text "No" also. Based on that if cell A4 is anything but "No" and A1, A2 and/or A3 then perform that action. (such as highlighting the cell)

    I hope that makes sense

    I appreciate any help making that.

    Nick

    In A4 use - =IF(AND(A1="no",A2="no"),"No",IF(A3="no","No",""))
    and conditional format cells A1:A3 with - =$A$4<>"No" in the formula option.
