Hi,

Please see the attached file. I would like to match column A of sheet1 and column A of sheet2,

afterwards write the values of column B in sheet1 onto corresponding cells of column C in sheet2.

it would be very nice if we can highlight each cell in column B or C in sheet2 if the two values of column B and C do not match.

It can be red if one is lower and green if it is higher.

Hope i am able to convey what i need.

thanks in advance.

Thank you for your reply.

Is there a way to highlight the cells in column C only.  If the value in cell C is greater than cell B then one color if is smaller another color.

thanks

You can remove one conditional format rule (for cells in B column)

Cell are highlighted in conditional formatting, not in formula. You can copy format from my example to your sheet with the Format Painter tool (little yellow paintbrush) and edit it (range and formula) in conditional formatting rules.
Here is an example of conditional formatting for similar case:
