    I have conditional format in row 5, as follows
    Condition 1
    =(F5="") and dragged across
    Format is for No colour
    Condition 2
    =ISNUMBER(FIND("G",numForm)) and dragged across
    Format is for Light green if condition met

    Cell Format is set at General

    I have two problems
    1. Cell F5 produces 4 decimal places
    2. If I change Cell format to Number , with 2 decimal places Conditional format of light green does not occur.

    Is there a way to have a number cell format (custom or otherwise)to two decimal places and a conditional format that leaves the light green if a number is in F5. If no number cell to remain clear.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    I think you should verify that the format in the conditional format is a number too
    Check if there are no quotes arounf that conditional format conditions, this happens quite often

    Thanks Keebeelah,
    No quotes around format.
    Have just tested the following

    Cell format Number to 2 decimal places
    Condion 2 of conditional format changed to
    =(F5>1)

    It works, so thanks to all who tried to work out a solution
