Go down to the section about highlighting where there's an error. That's the basics of what you want to do. Now you need the code:

This will set a value of "True" if the string is -not- found inside. So if you want to flag it for finding the word NOT, you want the conditional formatting to kick in if the value of this is FALSE.
=iserr(find("NOT",A1))

How do I set up excel to change the background of a cell as the information within the call changes?


Conditional formating should be able to this. But how is your data organized? (Column headers, Row headers etc.)

IS THERE A FORMULA IN EXCEL THAT WILL HIGHLIGHT CELLS THAT MATCH A NUMERICAL INVENTORY LIST?


One way would be to create a colunn C and use the formula: =COUNTIF(B$2:B$200,A2) in cell C2. Then copy the formula down to C200. (assuming you have 200 entries in B...). This will put a "1" next to every number in Column A that has a match in column B. Then you could put a conditional formula in column A that will highlight the cell if the value in column C is equal to 1. Alternatively you could also simply filter for 1's in column C and then manually highlight the cells that show up in A!

Double spacing


Before doing anything else, highlight all the text (including any 'white space' that might follow), that you want to change into 'single' spacing. Then go to top menu 'Format' then select 'Paragraph' and on the new menu find 'Spacing', Then on the pull down menu select 'single' and 'OK'

Excel Conditional Formatting: how do I make one cell highlight based on whether or not another cell is blank?


option: formula is
formula: =(datecell="")
select formatting of choice

Highlight the order cells, go to >format>conditional formatting, choose "formula is" instead of "cell is". When you refer to the datecell, use the first date cell in the column only, and do not use $ signs.

Conditional formating to highlight problems.


in Excel 2007 and if you have a cell (say C2) with the value of elapsed time (for example set = A2 which contains start time plus B2 which contains end time - or current time) - click in the cell (C2) then on the Home tab click on Styles >> Conditional formatting choose Highlight Cells Rules>>Greater Than... set your value in the dialog to your respective value and choose your highlight. This is a start - you can then add new rules.

to then apply this same conditional formatting to every cell in that column Ctrl-C to copy the cell you just formatted - then click on the column header to highlght the entire column - Right-click and choose Paste Special - then choose Formatting for what to paste.

It's slightly different in Excel 2003 so let us know what version you are using.

Cheers.
