I have a spreadsheet with approximately 2000 rows. I want to color code the rows based on the following conditions:

If T2 is less than U2, color the row red; if T2 is greater than U2, color the row green; and if U2 is empty, color the row blue.

Please tell me how to write it. Thanks

In Excel 2003:

  • Select T2
  • Format -> Conditional Formatting...
  • Add the first condition to set background to red, with condition less than, and value =U2
  • Click "Add > >" twice to add two more conditions, one for the greater-than case, and one for the empty case (condition equal to, value ="")

Click OK.
