Hi everyone,

In the attached sheet named '2014-2' are team scores. I would like to automatically color any team losses in red. The attached table has team losses done manually.

Attempted to do this using conditional formatting but was unable. Hope someone can help.

P.S. It should also work when items toward the bottom are updated. (i.e. 213:229).

Mark the entire columns B to CM.
In the conditional formatting use this formula
=AND(ROW()>4,OR(AND(ISNUMBER(B1),ISNUMBER(C1),B1<C1),AND(ISNUMBER(B1),ISNUMBER(A1),B1>A1)))

Ejbil,

would I have to change the formula cell numbers to match each other cell?

In other words, cell B1 and C1 apply to 'BAL' cells and then E:F apply to 'WSH', etc. or will the format applied to all cells, like you said above, be sufficient when copied across, as you said?

Ejbil,

Never mind that last statement.

I tried it and it does work on all cells in range.
