Dynamic Conditional Formatting

I have a table where there are multiple rows:

Question    OveralRate   Male   Female  PNTS

xyz                    44%         45%      55%    30%

xyz2                  38%         51%      32%    31%

I want to use conditional formatting for each row separately based on its OveralRate.

This is using Formatting based on cell values. I am using 3 point scale where the midpoint is OveralRate. The coloring determines then how far Male Female and PNTS are from the OveralRate - for each row separately. Colors in row xyz question will be based relative to 44% and xyz2 relative to 38%. Easy to do for a couple of rows manually but how can I quickly do it across 100 rows.

Thanks!

Re: Dynamic Conditional Formatting

``=((C2<\$B2-3)*(C2>=\$B2-6))+((C2>\$B2+3)*(C2<=\$B2+6))``

This is the rule for conditional formatting for Overall rate +/- 3 and +/-6 in the attached example file.

``=(C2<=\$B2+3)*(C2>=\$B2-3)``

This is the rule for conditional formatting for Overall rate +/- 3 in the attached example file.

Is this what you are looking for?

Re: Dynamic Conditional Formatting

if I wanted to get into the boundary between C2 and B2 of 0.01 to 0.03 and then from 0.04 to 0.06 I would have to
=(C2<=\$B2+0.01)*(C2>=\$B2+0.03)
=(C2<=\$B2+0.04)*(C2>=\$B2+0.06)
do I understand it correctly?
