Excel/change text color for values beyond a specific value
Hi, I set up an Excel worksheet for work attendance. I want the text color to change to red to alert for tardiness -- say, if our cutoff is 8:15 and the employee logs in at 8:16, then 8:16 should be colored red (and all other log in times 8:15 or earlier will be colored black). How do I do that in Excel please?
conditional formatting will handle this - you didn't specify the version of excel, so hard to give instructions as they differ depending on version - prior to the ribbon, it's data, conditional formatting - here you can set the rules you want to use to colour the text red. You MAY find it easier to spot if you used this to change the pattern of the cell - but you have the choice in conditional formatting to add what you need.
let me know if you need further help with this- you didn't originally ask me, but the question was in the "question pool" where questions that were not answered are available for any expert to look at.
