Hello Experts -

I was wondering if it possible to hide the dollar amounts in columns C18, F18, D23, E21, E22, and F18 - F23. my client doesn't need to see those just the numbers in BOLD.

And I will have to repeat this for all nodes that are bold.

See the attachment below.

Thanks in advance,

IF(something = BOLD, action) is not a test so far as I know in Excel. So I don't think you can do what you want directly.

I looked at your sheet and I think you would have to add an indicator column to control the display.

Alternatively, re-design the sheet so that dollars are in a separate column and hide the column. This is probably the best approach.

Can't you just make the font white? Or uncheck it as a column category?

Sometimes it's the simple’s things. Change the font to white works for me.
