    Conditional Formatting - Resource profiling by %

    Hi All,

    I'm new here and a bit of an excel novice.

    I have created a resource profile tracker that has about 450 resources in. I need a formula that will show if a resource is over (highlight red) or under allocated (highlight yellow) for each person.

    for example in Row 3 John Smith is maximum allocated 50% of his time to my Programme (shown in cell D3) cells E4 to P4 show his add up time by month from other cells to all the projects in my programme, I want the formula to show if he is over (red) or under (amber) allocated by month but as long as his status in C3 is Active.

    The I need to do that for the other 449 resources, I can work the formula for 1 row but if I copy the formulas down or format all cells E2 to P7 for each of the other resources then they always look to row 3 for the maximum allocated time and this will not work as not everyone is 50%?

    Please help

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I was asked to uplaod a clean version of the Data, so I created this simple table.

    A you can see I can get the formula working in row 2, I want to copy this for all the rows so that if columns D to O are greater or less than column C, it fills the cell amber for less than and red for greater than.

    As it currently stands I have to do this formula for each row one at a time and my original table has 450 lines in it so this will take me ages.

    Is there a formula that is inteligent enough so I can add the conditional formatting to all rows columns D to O but always reference the correct row in column C?

    many thanks.

    Carl.

    in your CF manager change your "Applies to" From "=$D$2:$O$7" to "=$D$2:$O$500"....where 500 can be the bottom range of your data set....do this to both CF and hit Apply....
