Experts!

I have spreadsheet with truncated formulas that will show the indicator name , the percentage and now I would like to show an arrow pointing up or down based on what the percentage is.  This is going into a dashboard so I though this would be good to include. Example.xlsx

FYI:  In the dashboard the surveillance tab under Weekly Performance Delta is what I am working with.

You can do it with Conditional Formatting in Excel 2010.

Not with a formula. The whole thing would have to be red.

Or you'd have to use a separate cell, of course.

Here you go. I added conditional formatting to make them red when the down arrow applies.
Example--2-.xlsx

Disregard..  It won't show color if it is being pulled into a combo box anyway..  :(

That is awesome.. but do you know what type of box or list of some sort that will pick up color?

The combo box is on a different page..

If you use a listview you can add icons to it but you would have to create the image files. It's also a lot of faffing about for not much result, IMO. :)
