Conditional Formatting Amendment


R

Rob Nance

Hello

I've currently got a condition as: Cell Value = CN, applied to $H:$H (ie a whole col) but I'd like to change that to "If first character of cell = C". Haven't done this for so long that I can't seem to get the formula right. :( Help?

try in conditional formatting "Formula to determine..." and enter the
formula:
=LEFT(H1,1)="C"

Thanks, Claus. Worked for that condition and I've amended it accordingly for other conditions in the column and it seems to be working for them too - so far!
