Status Change in Row

Hi,

In the attached spreadsheet, column G has a option of Open / Closed which can be selected.

When 'Closed' has been selected, the row from B3 to G3 needs to change colour to grey.

What I also noticed that the colour has no impact on cell B3.  If possible the colour needs to change to Grey, but the wording needs to stay the same

Then if possible:

If I change B3 to say Open, the Grey needs to go away, and if cell B3 says Green, it needs to change to Green fill

Hope this makes sense

As requested.

See conditional formatting in the attached.  Basically, you select cell G2, then create a conditional formation based on formula =$G2="Closed" and set the fill to grey, then edit the conditional format and change the apply to =$B$2:$G$10.  From that point, any closed cell in G2:G10 space will grey that row from B to G.  If changed to something else besides "Closed" the conditional format is "off" and thus the formatting for column B reverts.



Cheers,


Dave
