Enhanced Conditional Formatting in Excel 2003
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

I just posted a new Excel Video for the Tips & Tricks section.

Have you ever wanted to have more than THREE options for Conditional Formatting? Well, you can do it with a little bit of VBA programming.

Here's the link:


This video will give all of you (my die-hard Excel students) a chance to get a small taste of what's coming up in the next batch of advanced Excel classes.

Plus, you can all see the NEW VIDEO FORMAT I used which is 640x360 - larger than the old 448x300 videos I used to record. An overwhelming majority of you asked for bigger videos in the POLL I conducted a few months ago. So, here you go! Let me know what you think.

On the downside, if you've upgraded to Excel 2007, you don't need ANY of this, as 2007 allows for up to 64 different conditions in Conditional Formatting. But, if you're still using Excel 2003 or older - or if you just want to learn a little VBA code - then this lesson is pretty cool. It works for 2007 as well.

Enjoy, and let me know what you think.

Excel Conditional formatting video Comment from Chris Bezant @ 3/28/2009
Hello Richard
The quality of this video (vision & sound) is the best you have ever done. It goes without saying that the tutorial content is the usual very high standard. The new format is excellent. My vision is impaired so the bigger the better :o)
Well done.
