Hi,

I have a pivot where I return Yes/No in Col N

I want the corresponding text in cell in Col B to turn red if the N = "Yes"

So if N7=Yes" the text in N7 should be red

Thanks

Do you mean B7 to be red if N7 is Yes?

If so, then, with Col B selected:
Conditional Formatting menu/New Formatting Rule/Use a formula to determine which cells to format:
In the formula box enter =N1="Yes"
Click the Format button and then the font colour you want.
This will apply the formatting rule to all of Col B as the pivot table automatically as it expands/contracts.
