If ( cell A10 =2 ) AND ( cells C10:c15 through d10:d15 are blank)

Then color cells c10:15 through d10:15 red

I can do one or the other but can't figure out how to make it meet both criteria prior to coloring it red

I think you could simplify the formula to =AND(A10=2,COUNTBLANK(C10:D15)=12) - when it might just all fit into the window! –  pnuts Sep 27 '12 at 1:28
Yes, that should work also, thanks! I was being overly cautious. –  HeatfanJohn Sep 28 '12 at 13:19
