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.

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.

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. :)
