    conditional format--fonts (Excel 97)

    Is there a way to use conditional formatting to change the font itself? The conditional formatting dialogue box shows a tab for fonts, but they are always grayed out. I can change bold, etc., but not the actual font.

    Re: conditional format--fonts (Excel 97)

    I have Excel 2002. The online VBA help explicitly states that not all font properties are supported for conditional formatting. The properties that *are* supported are Bold, Color, ColorIndex, FontStyle, Italic, Strikethrough, and Underline. Name is not mentioned, so I'm afraid that you are out of luck.

    If you really need a different font when a condition is met, an event-driven macro to change the font under those conditions would do the trick.
