Can conditional formatting have more than one criteria?  e.g. If I want the background color to be red if the Officers name is Williams, or Jones or Smith.  Or the ID is 333, or 5454, or 66544?

Commented:
Yes, you can have many conditional rules. First true rule in the list will work.
Look at sample. Rules:
c1There are 2 true rules for second record (both for field with date), resulting color is from first matched rule in the list
