Hello.

Wondering if cell color can be controlled using a function instead of a macro.  Specifically what I need is to turn the cell fill color yellow when a data entry error is made by a user.  Here is my existing function which is in Cell C3:

=IF(SUM(B3-A3)>0,"Error","")

In addition to displaying "Error", which it already does, I want to modify the function to turn cell C3 yellow when an Error is made (i.e. when the value in B3 is greater than the value of A3)

Thank you
