Is there a way to conditional format a +/- range? Like zero is my middle point and anything +/- 3 would be green; +/-5 would be yellow; anything greater than +/-8 eight would be read? Been googling this and can't find anything.
Hi, Tracy, the conditional formatting can help you. Just create the rules like:1) =OR(A1=3,A1=-3), set the format is green bakcground, 2) =OR(A1=5,A1=-5), set the format is yellow bakcground, 3) =OR(A1>8,A1>-8),set the format is red. Hope this help you.
