    conditional formatting (2000)

    Hi, I need your help again. I'm trying to use Conditional Formatting if a cell contains the word Request. The problem is that the cell contains Request then the date which it went out. or it may say Request and a persons name. How do I get excel to conditional formate if the cell cantains anywhere in it the word Request. (not case Sensitive)
    Thanks for all your help

    Select the region (Assume A1:A100)
    Format - cond formatting
    formula is:
    <pre>=NOT(ISERROR(SEARCH("request",A1)))</pre>

    <format> Change format as desire
    <ok><ok>

    The cell in the formula is the "activecell"
