    Hi All,

    Excel newbie here, I have a excel sheet and I would like to have a cell change colour after 6 weeks which I have worked out. but I would like it to change a different colour based on a word in another cell, can anyone help please???

    I've attached a sample sheet that A3 turns blue after 6 weeks, but I would like it to chance yellow based on the word "TPO" in B or green based on the word "CA"... but keeping the 6 weeks rule also, hope this makes sense

    does NOT matter what the time is
    "TPO" =yellow
    "CA" = green

    and then if over 6 weeks turns blue

    setup up three rules in conditional formatting
    and order them so that the Blue is first in the list and then use the STOP IF TRUE ticked

    that should do it
