Hi,

In column "E" I need to add a Conditional Format Formula that higlight the cell in red when the value format typed is NOT as need it.

The values un column "E" must be like this:  J-31473021-5
(Letter "J" or "G" followed by "-" then 8 numbers then "-" and finally 1 number).

¿There is a way to do it ?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Regards,
Roberto.

Hello,

select column E, add a condition that is based on a formula (in 2007 and later it is called a new rule and "use a formula to determine...") and enter

=NOT(AND(OR(LEFT(E1,1)="J",LEFT(E1,1)="G"),MID(E1,2,1)="-",ISNUMBER(MID(E1,3,8)+0),MID(E1,11,1)="-",ISNUMBER(RIGHT(E1,1)+1)))

Select a format and click OK. See attached.

cheers, teylyn
