In excel, how would I make the contains of a cell red if its contents are > 0?
E.g. if I have some cells like so:

1
-1
2
-4
5

I would like the 1, 2, and 5 to be red.

Use conditional formatting. Formula =A1>0

For precise details, state which version of Excel you are using.

Not even that complicated, just use value >0 and choose formatting as red.

Sorry, I mispoke. I am actually using Excel 2007, but saving as 2003 (.xls).

It's pretty much the same in 07, via the Home tab I believe.
