    conditional Formatting based on another field (2003)

    greetings,

    I have a field that needs to be colored if another cell equals "done"

    The first cell is in A2, the second cell containing the text = to "done" is c2

    How to handle this with conditional formatting?

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Select cell A2 (the cell that you want to format conditionally).
    Select Format | Conditional Formatting...
    Select "Formula Is" from the first dropdown.
    Enter the following formula in the box next to it:

    =(C2="done")

    Click the Format... button.
    Specify the formatting that you want.
    OK your way out.

    Hans,
    Thanks. I was making it way too hard. I kept trying an "IF" and I could not figure out the "then" part

    Thanks,
    Brad
