Can Access Conditional Formatting have more than one criteria

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?

Can you give me an example using williams or Jones or smith?

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
c2

You could create an expression along the lines of
[LastName]='williams' OR [LastName]='jones' OR [LastName]='smith'
