Hello,

I´m trying color cells (Green-yellow-red) considering the value in it, for that, I added 3 rules, one colour each, but depending also from the sign in another cell.

That means, if the sign in the formula as a text, matches the sign in cell L15, then operate and give a color, if not, then compare the next condition, and so on...

My problem is that the second condition (<= ) of the formula does not operates.

Is it correct to use the conditional like this ?

 

Green:

=SI(L15="≥",T15>=S15,SI(L15="≤",T15<=S15,SI(L15="=",T15=S15)))

 

Yellow:

=SI(L15="≥",T15>=0.9*S15,SI(L15="≤ ",T15<=1.1*S15))

 

Red:

=SI(L15="≥",T15<0.9*S15,SI(L15="≤",T15>1.1*S15,SI(L15="=",T15<=S15)))

 

Thank you in advance

Alejandro

@Alejandro1963 , in general formula works if you mean like this

Another story you will never check third condition (=) since you start from "greater or equal". Start checking from "equal" as in the second variant.

Hi Sergei,

Thank you for your time, as you said, the formula worked but searching why it didn´t I realised I wrote in two different ways the text to be compared, "≤ " didn´t match to "≤" because the first text on the column had a space-tab after the symbol and in the formula it didn´t have that space.

These hidden orthographic mistakes are to be taken into account.

Regards

Alejandro
