MS Excel: Conditional Formatting Explained
DescriptionConditional formatting in Microsoft Excel is a useful tool for highlighting and visualizing data based on specified conditions. There are several predefined rules, such as "Greater Than", "Less Than", "Between", "Equal To", "Text That Contains", "A Date Occurring", "Duplicate Values", "Top 10 Items", "Bottom 10 Items", "Above Average", "Below Average", "Data Bars", "Color Scales", and "Icon Sets". Additionally, users can create their own customized conditional formatting rules using the "New Rule" option. The rules can be managed, edited, duplicated, or deleted using the "Manage Rule" option. Overall, conditional formatting can help users quickly identify patterns, trends, and exceptions in their data and make it easier to analyze.
