How do conditional formatting for 5 conditions excel 2010


Recommended Posts

You can only set 3 conditions but to work around this

First, when you format the cells to Dollars choose the option to have negative numbers in red, this takes care of the amounts less than $0.

Next use conditional formatting for $0 to $100, $101 to $250 and $251 to $500

All that’s left is amounts over $500 so select all the cells in the column and in the fonts group on the home tab select green for font colour. Any cells not matching the conditional formatting criteria will now have green text, In this case that will be those amounts over $500.

      Question from Reader - Email Form
       
       
      Hi Tom,
       
      Ouch. I know how it feels losing a days worth of work. The worst part is when you have to recreate what you've already done.
       
      To answer your question, when you found the Entry "OutlookSecureTempFolder" what was the path in the DATA column? I assume you reviewed this post here to find it. It looks like you found the registry key entry so your more than 1/2 way there. Find that key again and you should have the path to your OLK folder and your Excel should be sitting there.
       
      Now the path might be a bit confusing because with Outlook 2007, there actually is "NOT" an OLK folder. For instance, on my XP/Outlook 2007 install, my OLK folder or "Temp Outlook Folder" / "OutlookSecureTempFolder" is:
       
      c:\Documents and Settings\mrgroove\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\4V32TZLP  
      So if you look on your box you will find what your looking for in the "Content.Outlook" folder. Take a look there and your golden.
       
      More reading can be found here also on the Outlook OLK folder location:

      Thnx!

      My dad wants me to make him a excel sheet with all different formula's in it. No problem, I can make those. But in the sheet, the first cells are used for a name from his client, and the second cell is used for a date.
      Q: Is it possible to make Excel use those to cells to create the filename of the sheet when it saves?
