Select the entire range from C5:N7, then go to Home|Conditional Formatting|New Rule

Select "use a formula to determine which cells to format" and enter formula:

=AND(C5<>0,OR(E5=0,D5=0))

Then click Format and choose from Fill tab.

The above solves it if you mean within two to the RIGHT.  If you mean within two cells left or right, you need a couple more "OR" items :-)

Great answer from NBVC though!

@nbvc. That works well although I just had to tweak the formula to read as follows..(allowing for the different cells I put it into...). Thank you :-)
=AND($F4<>0,OR(G$4=0,H$4=0))

Had to tweak it a tiny bit but worked beautifully :-)
