    I am hoping someone can help me with this, as I am most certainly lost. I am attempting to create a spreadsheet that allows me to enter ASVAB test scores and physical condition data (on sheet 1) for an applicant that then correlates to related cells (on sheet 2) and then if certain conditions are met, a Cell on (sheet 2) will then show results of either: "QUALIFIED" (cell filled in green) or "NOT QUALIFIED" (cell filled in red).
    I am trying to see how to create this formula correlating the data from the multiple cells across two sheets with the results highlighting the one cell in one of two colors with the related text above.

    Here is an example of what I am working with:

    Using Data entered into:

    C10 (sheet 1) => F4 (sheet 2)
    and J4(sheet 1)=< P4(sheet 2)
    and J7(sheet 1) =< Q4(sheet 2)
    and J10(sheet 1) =< R4(sheet 2)
    and M4(sheet 1) =< S4(sheet 2)
    and M7(sheet 1) =< T4(sheet 2)
    and M10(sheet 1) =< U4(sheet 2)

    with results ending up in C4 (sheet 2) that display either:"QUALIFIED" (cell filled in green) or "NOT QUALIFIED" (cell filled in red).

    EXAMPLE 2:

    Using Data entered into:

    F4 (sheet 1) => I7 (sheet 2)
    C4 (sheet 1) => J7 (sheet 2)
    F16 (sheet 1) => N7 (sheet 2)
    and J4(sheet 1)=< P7 (sheet 2)
    and J7(sheet 1) =< Q7 (sheet 2)
    and J10(sheet 1) =< R7 (sheet 2)
    and M4(sheet 1) =< S7 (sheet 2)
    and M7(sheet 1) =< T7 (sheet 2)
    and M10(sheet 1) =< U7 (sheet 2)

    with results ending up in C7 (sheet 2) that display either:"QUALIFIED" (cell filled in green) or "NOT QUALIFIED" (cell filled in red).

    Hopefully, the above examples are not too difficult to understand for what I am trying to accomplish. Additionally, Is it possible to create a rule that will compress a lot of these formula's? I tried to do some research, but try as I might, I just can't seem to figure it out. I greatly appreciate any assistance I can get. I have also attached a condensed version of the worksheet named "new MOS qual" I am trying to create if it helps. Thank you very much.

    you say AND - so you should be able to use the AND function and conditional format

    =Sheet2!C3

    =AND (
    sheet1!C10 >= sheet2!F4,
    sheet1!J4 <= sheet2!P4,
    sheet1!J7 >= sheet2!Q4,
    sheet1!J10 <= sheet2!R4,
    sheet1!M4 <= sheet2!S4,
    sheet1!M7 <= sheet2!T4,
    sheet1!M10 <= sheet2!U4
    )

    that will give true or false

    so now we add an IF

    =IF ( the and statement, "QUALIFIED" , "NOT QUALIFIED")

    so should look like this
    Code:
    =IF(AND(Sheet1!C10>=Sheet2!F4,Sheet1!J4<=Sheet2!P4,Sheet1!J7>=Sheet2!Q4,Sheet1!J10<=Sheet2!R4,Sheet1!M4<=Sheet2!S4,Sheet1!M7<=Sheet2!T4,Sheet1!M10<=Sheet2!U4),"QUALIFIED","NOT QUALIFIED")
    
    and then use conditional format to set the colour based on qualified or non qualified

    looked at your sheet wasnt sure where to put the formula as no sheet 1 or sheet 2

    so i attached a sample here

    and to test just change cell C10 to 1 or -1
    as 1 will be true for the AND statement and -1 false


    for C7

    AND(
    sheet1!F4 >= sheet2!I7,
    sheet1!C4 >= sheet2!J7,
    sheet1!F16 >= sheet2!N7,
    sheet1!J4 <= sheet2!P7,
    sheet1!J7 <= sheet2!Q7,
    sheet1!J10 <= sheet2!R7,
    sheet1!M4 <= sheet2!S7,
    sheet1!M7 <= sheet2!T7,
    sheet1!M10 <= sheet2!U7
    )

    so the code looks like this for C7
    Code:
    =IF(AND(Sheet1!F4>=Sheet2!I7,Sheet1!C4>=Sheet2!J7,Sheet1!F16>=Sheet2!N7,Sheet1!J4<=Sheet2!P7,Sheet1!J7<=Sheet2!Q7,Sheet1!J10<=Sheet2!R7,Sheet1!M4<=Sheet2!S7,Sheet1!M7<=Sheet2!T7,Sheet1!M10<=Sheet2!U7),"QUALIFIED","NOT QUALIFIED")
    
    I have edited the spreadsheet and F4 1 or -1 changes C7
