How to conditional formatting smiley face chart or font in Excel cells?

In sometime, if the students or sales’ performance is up to the standard, you may want to insert a smiley face to encourage them, but if the performance is below the standard, you may want to insert a sad face to show your disappointment. Now I will tell you some tricks to insert the emotional face chart in Excel.

Click J in to the cell you need to show the smiley face, then click Home tab, and type Wingdings into the Font text box, then press the Enter key. See screenshot:

Now the smiley face is shown:

Note: The character J, L, K must be capital characters.

If you want to conditional formatting the smiley face charts, for example, if grade is up and equal to 85, you will insert a smiley face, and if grade is up 60 but below 85, you will insert a gentle face, but if the grade is below 60, you will insert a sad face.

Click at the cell you want to show the face charts, then type this formula =IF(B2 >= 85,"J",IF(AND(B2 <=84, 60< B2),"K",IF(B2 < 60,"L"))), then drag the auto fill handle to the range you need. Then select the range with this formula applied, and change the font style with typing Wingdings into the Font text box and pressing the Enter key on the Home tab.

Now the smiley charts are inserted.


1. In the above formula, B2 is the cell you want to conditional formatting based on.

2. When you change the data in column B, the smiley face also changes.
