Posted on 2011-02-14
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Hello Experts,

You have already helped me immensely with my last request to conditionally format a an excel cell.

I would like to ask a similar request. This time I would be very grateful if someone could me how to conditionally format cell Q2, in the example, so that when it reaches 0.02% the cell will be highlighted green. And should it go back above 0.02/% to go back to white/clear cell?

As always thank you so much

Should the second part of my request prove a little difficult, I would be happy if you could accomplish the first part of the request.
