conditional formating #4

I have an annual report spreadsheet comprised of  15 rows (1 - 15) and 5 
columns (A - E).  In columns "B" and "D" I add numbers from the current 
year, leaving future year cells blank.  I highlight in yellow the blank 
future cells in columns "B" and "D" by a conditional format "formula is = 
ISBLANK(B9)".  I leave past year cells in "B" and "D" with numbers but no 
highlight colors.  I wish to highlight in green the current year numbers in 
columns "B" and "D", which will always be a cell above the first yellow 
blank cell, and a cell below last years non-highlighted numbered cell.  Each 
year as I add new annual numbers to column "B" and "D", the previous green 
cells would change from green to no highlight and the previous yellow blank 
cell would change to a green highlight.

What would condition #2 be in the conditional format formula?

Thank you for your time and help.

Assuming that your dates for each year are listed in column A you coul
use these two.  You'll need to modify your other condition.

For 1st condition = Green


For 2nd condition = Yellow


This will color cell B9 green 

Format as needed.

Does that Help?

This is a test response to your answer.  I've been trying to respond with a 
picture of my spreadsheet, but it does not seem to work.  I'm wondering if 
attachments are not allowed, thus my previous attempt was blocked.  I am not 
real fairmiliar with news groups so I'm most likely selecting an incorrect 

Thank you for your help and patience.

Conditional formating using named cell
Hi. In a pivottable in Excel 07 I have the monthly results for a department. I use conditional formating to indicate if the spend value for year to date exceeds the total-year-plan with more than a certain pct. This pct will change over the year, depending on the month shown. Till now I have typed the value in the conditional formating: =3D($J9*4/12)<$G9 [J is total-year-plan and G is the spend value for year to date.] I would like to make the formula dynamic, and have it to refer to a cell called ValueForRed. I have tried to tye =3D($J9*ValueForRed)<$G9 but it does not work. Any s...

Change default number format
Anyone have any idea how to do this? You could create a template workbook (*.xlt) and format all the cells with the numberformat you want. Then use that whenever you want to use that special format. If you want to use that number format for all new workbooks, name the template workbook book.xlt and store it in your XLStart folder. If you save another copy as sheet.xlt, then any new sheet added to an existing workbook will inherit that number format. mbrucker wrote: > > Anyone have any idea how to do this? -- Dave Peterson Right click the cell. > format cells ...

CRM 4.0 for the Visually Impaired
I heard that CRM 4.0 has some functionality for the visually impaired. Can anyone point me in the right direction to find out more about this? Thanks.
