I want to do a conditional rule, but can't seem to get it to work correctly.  I want to compare Column F with Column C.  If Column F does not match Column C, and it is not empty, I want it to highlight red.  Issue is that when the below formula, some of the cells that match the value, it is still highlighting it red.

=IF($c2=$f2, 1, 0)

However, it is highighliting some items that matches as well as blank cells.  Any ideas?

Is it possible you fill an excel file with multiple of these errors, and point then out? Attach the file here?

Gerwin Jansen has the right answer, with slight modification.

i think F is the column to check for blank.
=AND($F2 <> "", $C2 <> $F2)
