Hi everyone, is there a way that Excel can be made to change the cell colours depending upon the cell contents? I have a group of cells that display the result of a sum. The cells are green (the default entry is a positive number)the calculations reduce the number and I would like the display cells to change to red when the contents reaches zero or negative.I'm not even sure if it is even possible, but any help would be appreciated.

Excel 2007? Select range. Conditional Formatting/Highlight Cell Rules/Less than and choose colour of formatting.

Check back later.
