    conditional formatting (Excel 2000)

    Hello to all in the know,

    I have a cell with an If / then formula that will print "OVER NUMBER OF HOURS ALLOTED - MUST REDUCE" or "O.K. FOR HOURS ALLOWED, depending on result of formula. I am trying to get the OVER NUMBER OF HOURS ALLOTED - MUST REDUCE to show up in red - bold if that is the result of the formula. So far .... no luck. Am I barking up the wrong tree with using the conditional formatting option to do this?

    Thanks in advance for all the help.

    See the attached demo. Cells B1 and B2 use two different ways of specifying conditional formatting: B1 uses the cell value (of B1 itself), B2 a formula.

    (Note: I corrected the spelling from ALLOTED to ALLOTTED)
