    Conditional Formatting (2000)

    I would like to put 4 conditional formats in a cell: first, if the cell returns text of "N/A", or, two, a numeric value of zero, I would like the format to be black bold. Three, if the cell value is less than zero, bold red, and fourth, if greater than zero, bold navy.
    Thoughts?

    As stated, you can combine the first two, or did you omit something?

    Is that really text N/A or is it the error value N/A? What do you want the formatting to be if it is N/A? From your message it looks like you want it to be the same as when the value is zero, but that is not clear since that would only be three conditional formats with four conditions.

    That's what I don't know how to do-combining a text argument with a numerical one!

    See if the conditional format on cell A1 in the attached does what you want.

    If you don't want standard text to be formatted bold navy, change the formula from

    =$A$1>0

    to

    =AND($A$1>0,ISNUMBER($A$1))

    (Excel considers text to be greater than all numbers)
