```Hi Fred,

No its works just fine, what I want to do is add more IF's to it e.g. a
check for "DECEASED", so I'm trying to see if I can simplify it before I
start making it bigger.

Thanks

Hi Bob,

Thanks again, works as expected and I can add to it as I wish without
undue complication.

What do you mean by "rationalize"?  Do you mean "simplify"?  If so, then:

"", AM3 + AR3*30)

Formula entries get turned into textual entries
I received a workbook from another company and wanted to add a new column of formulas. However, even though I included the = sign and ensured the correct formula, my entry into the cell would suddenly convert it to text, showing a ' or ^ character in front of the = sign. I discovered if I clear all formatting and data entry from the cells, it would then allow me to enter formulas. I've also found that if I create new workbooks/spreadsheets, this does not happen. I experience the same odd behavior in 2003 and 2007. This suggests there's something wrong with the file the other compan...

Conditional Formating for a cell based on another cell's value
Hi all: I was wondering if there was a way to put a conditional formating on a cell based on the values of another cell. What I mean is that, if Cell A is >5 , make cell b Blue, not just cell A. Likewise, if Cell A is <5, make both cell a and b red. On the same topic, is it possible to put more than 3 conditions on a conditional formating?

Use a formula in the conditional formatting in type in something like this... =\$A1<5 This will apply the cond...

Formula that generates a null value

If I copy this cell to the clipboard and then special-paste it to another cell for just "values", then I want nothing (empty!) to be put in the target cell. =IF(A1=1,"","do something else") since you didn't say what you want if the condition is false -- Regards, Peo Sjoblom "Hall" <hall@garp.org> wrote in message news:eyEAPNywDHA....
