Using Conditional Formatting to Monitor Table Cell Values
Conditional formatting changes a cell’s appearance when the cell contains a particular
value, referred to below as a test value.
To apply conditional formatting, you select one or more cells and then define one or
more rules. The rules specify which visual effects to associate with cells when they
contain the test value.
For example, you can define a rule that fills a cell with blue when it contains 0, a rule
that displays the cell’s value as boldface black if it’s greater than 0, and a rule that fills
the cell with red if its value is less than 0.
Rules applied to multiple cells trigger conditional formatting when any of the cells
contains the test value.
