Ok So I have a list of vehicles and the number of loads they ran in a pivot table.

Site     |  # Loads
Site A  |   10
Veh1   |   4
Veh2   |   3
Veh3   |   3

Site B  |   20
Veh11  |   14
Veh12  |   3
Veh13  |   3

The problem is I want an icon set under each site (indicated by Bold). If I expand all and manually select and apply the conditional format it works fine, but is there anyway to tell it to do so automatically. Because any data refresh messes it up.

Hi there,

No, I'm sorry, there's no way to do that natively. You could, of course, make a code solution, but that would be an extreme waste IMHO, because it would take quite a bit of coding to achieve. A workaround I would do is to duplicate the field in the Value area where it only shows a value based on your conditions. Then apply conditional formatting to this secondary field and only show icons.

That's what I was afraid of Zack. I'll hold this open another 24 hours just to be sure no one else has options, if not I'll toss you the points.
