I want to change the Color of the cell based on the adjacent cell.

 

I want to check the the value in cell 2 is less than cell1, if true Highlight the cell 2 in red and

check the cell 3 with cell 2 and Highlight the cell 3 if it is lesser.

Like this I want to do for 500 cells. It is not working if I use Format painter with conditional formatting.

Each time I Need to edit the formula to set the comparison with adjacent cells.

 

Pls help me to resolve the issue. Thank you in advance.

 

For example

 2
 45
 52
 45
 45
 45
 45
 45
 45

Hi Arun,

 

You may apply conditional formatting rule with formula

=$B2<OFFSET($B2,-1,0)

to your range starting from second cell
