Hello Experts,

While waiting for assistance with another issue concerning Excel Timer Alert, I was wondering if someone could please show me how to write a formula to highlight cells.

In attachment I would like a different highlight for cells with AP3, AU3, AQ3 and AV3.

Cheers

You cannot do this with a formula, but you can use conditional formatting.  On the 'Home' tab, under styles you'll see Conditional formatting...  Select your cells, choose Highlight cells rules, then Equal to, and set the formatting you want.

I don't want to seem grasping here, but if you liked this solution and the one to your other Excel run-time error 13, please could you give me the points?  Wife and 4 hungry children to support...
