I have a column with percentages, for example

| -19% |
|  17% |
|   4% |
|  30% |
| -31% |

I'm trying to use the Icon Set green, yellow and red. For a negative percentage, I would like to use the Red Icon. Any percent above 90 should use the Yellow one. Below 90 percent it has to be the Green Icon.

I tried changing several conditions in the rules for the conditional formatting but I wasn't successful.

    It depends of Excel if you have Excel-2010 and more you can do it by customizing the set but for Excel 2007 you have to use the available colors and sequences Red, Yellow, Green Customize Excel Icon Set – yass Mar 16 '17 at 19:48
  • I have excel 2013. I haven't been able to customize it to show the colors based on the way I mentioned. Do you know how to make it work? – Sam Mar 16 '17 at 19:49

Changed the second "Type" to 'Number' instead of 'Percent'
