    conditional formatting (2002 SP3)

    Is 3 really, really the limit for the number of conditions? I was kinda hoping for five.

    It really is.

    However, for numbers you can also use a custom number format to add conditional formatting, for example
    <code>
    <!t>[Red]<!/t>[<100];<!t>[Green]<!/t>[>100]
    </code>
    If you really need a lot of different conditions, you can use VBA code. See the links in the thread starting at <post:=355,924>post 355,924</post:>.

    If you upgrade to Office 2007, you can have 64; but if you are sharing the files with users of previous versions, they only see the first 3 I believe.
    FWIW.

    I never knew that I could use colors in the number formats. It serves my purposes just fine. Thanks.
