In excel change color of a range of cells based on a cell value
Based on a cell value from a drop down box, how can you make a range of cells
to change background color?
Use the cell the box is linked to in your conditional formatting formula.
If your box is tied to, say, A1, make sure the conditional formula is like:
value is whatever will be selected in the box.
Then set the background color.

...How to get #value! to return a value of 0?
My formula is like this: =A2+B2+C2. However, some of the values in the B2
column are "--," indicating "not applicable". When I use the formula, it
interprets this as text, of course, and returns the error value of #VALUE!
I want it to treat these as zeroes. How can I do this? I tried doing a FIND
AND REPLACE, but it did not recognize any of the "-- " values in the FIND.
Can anybody help?
=SUM(A2:C2) would be the easiest way. SUM will ignore text.

We have tried format, cells, zip code. When we type in a zip code then tab to

I presume you do not actually get ALL zeros.
What number did you type into the cell, is it possible that you have

Hoping someone can help me with a macro. I need to look at each row (except

Then for the remaining visible cells, look at each column (except for column
A), and if everything in that column is true, it should hide that column. If
the column has a "false" in it, that column should stay visible. If it
