#### Advanced Conditional Formatting and Changing Cell Colours

```I have three basic (for programmers) conditional formatting problems
to solve in Excel for which I require some help. These are the last 3
conditions I need to complete for the worksheet so any help will be
really appreciated. They are as follows:

1.
If cell Y2 is > 0 and cell Z2 = 0 I need to change the colour of cell
Z2

2.
If cell Y2 or cell AA2 > 0 and cells V2, W2, or X2 = the value "Z" I
need to change the colour of the cell containing "Z" (V2, W2 or X2).
If changing the colour of only the single cell containing "Z" cannot
be done, I guess changing the colour of the whole row would be okay.

3.
If cell Y2 or cell AA2 > 0 and cell R2 <> 100 I need to change the
colour of the row

Unfortunately the info they contain is not correct. I am posting them
again in attempt to get a response that I can use, but you can be rude
and nasty about it if you like. I guess no one can stop you

```If the responses to your other posts did not help, stick(reply)to the threads
you found them in and explain what did or did not work rather than just posting

That's how things are done in these groups in order to maximize the assistance

If you consider this to be a rude and nasty reply then I do not apologize.

This wasn't a rude and nasty response at all. Your first one was, and
don't worry I certainly wasn't expecting an apology from your decent

Excel refers to cells using either Column and row numbers, such as for example A1 or Cells(1, 1), or else by using range names you create.
