    Background of cell to change depending on two conditions

    Dear all,

    I would like the background of cells I13 to I29 to change if:
    1) they are empty AND
    2) the 1st digit of their corresponding cell in column A is less than 3.

    Could someone please give me a code for this. I have tried to use conditional formatting but I cannot get both conditions together.

    Could someone help please.

    PS. I do not mind what colour the cell becomes as I guess it will be defined by a number which I can change if necessary.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Regards,
    Cdmg

    Use this in CF:

    =AND(--LEFT($A13,1)<3,$I13="")

    Select I13:I29 and invoke Conditional Formatting applying formula:

    =AND(I13="",LEFT(A13)+0<3)
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
