How to change cell color based on content
Hi, hope someone can help me. I don't use Excel much, but I'm creating a
spreadsheet that keeps track of ticket sales for a charity I volunteer for.
Anyway, what I want to do is to make the cells stand out for those that
still owe money, either because a check is forthcoming or because they
ordered by credit card.
I want the credit card orders to show up with a different color (eg YELLOW)
than those who are fully paid.
I want the forthcoming check orders to show up in a different color (eg
So I have a column with payment type that is either Cash, Check, or Credit

I have a column which calculated a date based on 3 working days from a date
input into a diff column. What I want to do I have the calculated date
appear bold if that date has passed based on the current date.
For example if I input 01/08/11 the next column calculates 04/08/11 (3
working days). I want the caluclated date to appear bold when I open the
spreadsheet on the 05/08/11 ro show the calculated date has passed.
I can use conditional formatting but can't get the syntax right

I'm using the US version of Excel 2003, but need to format costs, etc., for a
project in the French euro format (e.g., I need 2050.45 euros to display as 2
That currency format isn't offered in my dialog box, and if I make a custom
number format that will display correctly, it doesn't operate as a number.

I'm trying to create a query to base a report from. I need it to return
records within a date range that needs to be specified, as in specifying the

included in the query that has listed dates in the format mm/dd/yyyy. How
would I write the criteria? I have part of it ready - [Please enter starting
