I have a pivot table that has 5 columns (Customer, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012). Customers may buy from us each of the 4 years or every other year. Their purchases all depend. I am looking it add conditional formatting so that cell is highlighted if there is a value in the prior year, but not in the current year. I have uploaded some hard coded sample data.

Prior Year has a value, but current year does not.

Select column C:E, then go to Home|Conditional Formatting|New Rule

Select use a formula to determine which cells to format

Enter formula: =AND(ISNUMBER(B1),B1>0,C1=0)

It worked great. The only change I had to make was the C1=0 to C1=""..... Awesome!
