Guys I know it is possible to use conditional format to alter cells but it is limited.
I need to have a way to enter a value in a cell say A1 and a range of cells say G3:AK1000 to change colour and all matching to show up in red and everything else to go white.

Can you help

Regards

Darren

If you mean, "make every cell in g3:ak1000 that is equal to the value in A1 red", then create a formula-based Conditional Formatting rule for g3:ak1000 using this formula:

=$A$1

and select your formatting (red fill).

Simple :)
