Excel Programming >> How do I get 6 conditional formats?

Hi

I am trying to create a programme in excel based on latest and actual
dates. Using conditional formatting, I have been able to shade the
cell that references the latest an activity can be done. But I also
want to add the same colour to the actual date (viewed as a upside down
triangle) but cannot add any more conditions Format > Conditional
Formatting

What I have at the moment is

=IF(OR($W9=AG$4,$AA9=AG$4,$AC9=AG$4),"▼",IF(OR($V9="n/a",$Y9="n/a",$AB9=""),"",IF($V9=AG$4,1,IF($Y9=AG$4,2,IF($AB9=AG$4,3,IF(OR($V9>AG$4,$AB9>AG$4),"▬",""))))))


I want to be able to say IF(OR($W9=AG$4,"▼", and also make it 4
(and conditional format so that I can make it the same colour as the
latest cell shade). In all I will have 6 conditional formats

Do I make any sense? I am not good explaining what I am trying to
do...


Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
KatieJane

I don't want to use a download - other people need to use this
spreadsheet.

Would you be able to point me in the direction of setting it up using
VBA.

Thanks

Excel Programming >> How do I get 6 conditional formats? The download actually adds code to the sheets it is being used in. Give it a
try. If it is not what you want then you will have to get into the VBA and it
is a fairly involved process as only 3 true conditional formats are supported.

I tested the add-in that you suggested and it didn't work.

When I used the CF+ tool it kept on changing the condition. I wante
it to be the Cell value equals 1 and it kept on changing it to Th
formula of the cell is E9=1

How hard would it be to do the conditional formatting in VBA?

Thanks
