Excel 2010 - Conditional Formatting

I have a spreadsheet that contains a number of columns and cells. I wish to make on of the cells subject to a conditional format. If the value of AA2 is greater than the value of E2 then make F2 Green, if it less make it red and if it equals do nothing.

I know this is a simple task but I can't for the life of me work out how to do more than one conditional format to a cell.

And I have ordered a dummies guide to Excel & VBA for those of you who are tired of answering my questions :)

In Excel until 2003 (I believe), the conditional formatting dialog has button "Add >>" or somethink like this on the bottom, which adds a new line of conditional formatting, for up to 3 total.
In Excel from 2007, you can do "Conditional formatting'->New Rule to add new rules. I don't know if there's a limit.

In Excel 2010 perform your conditonal formatting for "greater than" then do it again for "less than"

The second rule doesn't oevrwite the first one, it coexists.

In Excel 2010 it goes as follows :
- Select the cell(s) that you want to format
- Create a new rule
- Select the 'Use a formula' option in the type list
- Type in the formula : =A1 < A2 for example
- Set the format as you wish

The repeat the previous steps, but alter the formula to =A1 > A2 and change the format.

That should do it!
