#### Conditioal formatting problem

```I have a column with conditional formatting applied.  Say I'm formatting
cell E4.

The column shows the number within a processing cycle which need
warning traffic lights when certain days are reached so far I have set
up:

Condition 1 shows orange if the cell value is between 9 and 11.

Condition 2 shows red if the cell value is greater than or equal to
12.

My problem is that I need a 3rd condition to grey out cell E4 if a date
is entered into cell G4.  I've tried all sorts but the formatting will
not work.

Firstly can someone suggest a formula for condition 3.

Secondly do I actually need formulas in conditions 1 and 2 to state
apply formating as per the criteria above , but only if G4 is blank?

any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

```Put your 3rd condition 1st, using this formula: =AND(ISBLANK(G4),E4<9)
I didn't use formulas for the 2nd and 3rd conditions.

```In Condition 1, use Cell Value Is between 01/01/1900 and 31/12/2100

Condition 2, Cell value is between 9 and 11

Condition 3, cell value is greater than or equal to 12

This works as long as there are no dates enter which are before
01/01/1900 and later than 31/12/2100.

Hope this helps.

```You need to change the order of your conditions.  Check for the status
of G4 in cond. 1:

Formula is: =G4<>""  set your fill pattern color to gray

cond. 2 (will only be used if cond. 1 is false)

Cell Value Is:  >12   set fill pattern to color RED (may also want to
change font color to yellow for visibility's sake)

cond. 3 (will only be used if both cond. 1 & 2 are false)

Cell Value Is: Between: 9  and 11   set fill color to orange

Interesting Problem with Child element order
Hi there, I have an interesting problem that maybe you pros can suggest how I solve. I'm working with a third party program that serializes an XML document (it was obviously not designed with schema in mind). I created a schema from this document. It works fine. Except for some unknown reason, in a small part of the XML document, this program switches the order around, and of course the validator I built then fails. Its always the same two elements it switches (from top to bottom and bottom to top) ex: Some documents have the metaID on top, some on the bottom, these are the only two e...

Tagging formatting (cells with mixed formatting)

How do I prevent the wrong entry in a field with multiple conditio

The idea is that they select what they consider is the correct address, and the control sends the data to the next available empty field on the Target Form.

Subform Problem 12-28-07

Lost Formatting When tab is copied
My problem would seem to be very basic. I have a table that has values with dollars in columns and then a rate (i.e. one cell less another and then divide) in percentage format. When I copy an existing tab either into the same workbook or into a new workbook, many of my percent formats change to dollar format. This happens no matter what page I copy and it happens on pages that I am not even touching or copying. Often times these cells that lose their formatting are next to cells that are in dollar format that are pulling their data from pivot table. Could this have anything to do with it? ...
