Another Excel Query

  Dirty Dick 12:14 14 Aug 2007

I'm running Excel 2007 and was wondering if there is a way to highlight the lowest and highest values in a column(in currency), when I say highlight could I either fill the cell with red for lowest and green for higheat, or/and could I send the details to another cell on the spraedsheet.

Take a look at Conditional Formatting. In Excel 2007 it should be simple to create a new rule for this if tyhere isn't one already set up.

In earlier versions of Excel you would select your column of numbers, Format > Conditional Formatting > Select Formula Is and use


(where B14 is at the top of the selected range) then set the format. Then Add another condition


for the second format.

Select your range of values. On the Home tab click Conditional Formatting, Click New Rule, Click Use a formula to determine which cells to format.

In the 'Format values where this formula is true' box enter an equation as above, set a format and click OK. Repeat to set up the other CF.

click here

and install. then, in the drop-down menu 'asap utilities' in the menu bar, pick 'select' then option 12 'select cell with smallest number'. Then option 13 for largest number.

Also try using conditional formatting in the same utility. All useful stuff!

If you do install ASAP-UTILITIES, in Excel 2007 you will find it on the Add-Ins tab. To display the Add-ins tab left click the Office Button (top left) > Excel Options > Add-ins ...

VoG™ - Thanx works like a dream. The only query I have now is, How do I get the highst and lowest values in a list of values to be sent to another sheet, such as a summary sheet?

You can't use a formula to 'send' to another cell, you can only 'pull' information from one cell to another.

So if your list is in column B of Sheet1 then on the summary sheet you can use the formula


to give you the maximum and in another cell a similar formula using MIN to give the lowest value.
