I've set my CF rule to look like the screen shot I have attached. I've been over it for what seems like 100x but it's just not working. Can someone please help?
Although conditional formatting should override manual formatting, sometime it hiccups. I'd try clearing the formatting from the 2 columns (see image below).
If your values have been copied from elsewhere or are being calculated via a formula, perhaps also test manually creating values to eliminate issues with the data.
Bear in mind too that your CF rule is applied to the whole row. If you are looking to match your screenshot, you will need to adjust the rule to apply to only the JOB COST TO DATE column.
Thanks for the response. I cleared everything out and made sure that I only had the CF applied to the JOB COST TO DATE and still nothing. Clearly, I am doing something wrong, I've tried this every different way I can think of, deleted it when it didn't work and tried something new. More than likely, user error.
No idea to be honest. Your CF looks OK, so I'm stumped.
Have you tried creating a new sheet and testing CF with 2 cells? You don't need to rename them, just set them to a Currency format and give it a go.
Another workaround could also be to create a PROJECT DELTA column to the right:
=[ADJUSTED PROJECT COST]1 - [JOB COST TO DATE]1
And then set up your CF based on this new column. If PROJECT DELTA is less than 0 then apply this format to the 'JOB COST TO DATE' column
Hope you get it sorted.
I have a sheet that tracks employees certifications. I'd like to setup a single automation that runs weekly to alert the employee when the expiration date is within 180, 90, 60 and 30 days away. I'd prefer that the 180 day alert only be sent monthly until the 90 day date is hit, then weekly. I'd like the message sent to…
Hi there, I want to use the trigger and alert to notify someone in the next row when the task above is complete. E.g., if the Status column is changed to Complete in row 3, I want an alert to be sent to the contact in the Assigned To column in row 4. Is that possible? Megan
I have a certification that requires a few lessons to be fully certified. Each lesson has a completion date in it's own column and a date column for when they become fully certified. So, if there if one training is missing a completion date they are not considered fully certified. My need is to be able to collect the max…
