Dear Experts,
I know about the powerful function of conditional formatting. However, I would like if there is a way to implement certain conditions also into a formula.
E.g. IF in field A2 is stated the word "goal" have the entire line in bold or in bold and red font?
thank you
Nils

Hope this helps

Sub Sample()
    If Range("A2").Font.ColorIndex = 3 And Range("A2").Font.Bold = True Then
        Debug.Print "Font is bold and in Red Color"
    End If
End Sub

# From the first dropdown, choose cell value Is
# from the second drop down select equal to
# in the next column write goal
# click on fromat button.

If you mean you want to use a formula in a cell instead of conditional formatting, then no, that is not possible.

Hello,

maybe you could post a sample file and explain in context. The way I read your question is that you would like a row to be in bold red font if the text in column A of the cell contains the word "goal".

If so, you can select all rows, then create a conditional formatting rule with a formula like

=FIND("goal",$A1)

(Mind the $ sign!!) and select a format. See attached.

cheers, teylyn
