    Hello All,

    I am needing a formula that will format a cell based on the value of another cell, this part i have managed but i am wanting to make the format of the cell change if the value of the other cell is between 2 numbers - this part i am a little stuck with, everything i have found online and tried has not worked.

    I am using the conditional formatting option and then the use formula to determine the formatting.


    Does this make sense? Any help would be great, cheers

    Try Cell value is between, rather than formula is

    Does that not refer to the cell that is being formatted? i am wanting it to use the value of a different cell?

    Sorry was watching football between reading posts.

    OK reference cell is A1 .
    In B1 try this

    Code:
    =AND($a1>=10,$a1<=20)
    Format as needed
    Substitute 10 and 20 with your numbers.
