    change a cell colour when entering a letter

    I am working in excel 2000, and I need to know how to change a colour of a
    cell when I enter a letter. Ie, if I put y for yes in a cell, I want to
    change that cell to say red.

    Use "Conditional Formatting"

    Click on the cell, do Format > ConditionalFormatting > CellValueIs > EqualTo
    > Y > FormatButton > PatternsTab > choose red color block > OK > OK



    Vaya con Dios,
