Question
Hi, I work in a school and deal with term grades (grade 1 column)and their progress against their target grade (target coloumn).  I have learnt to work out the levels of progress (use a vlookup formula table) and get the result (diff column) to automatically change color - red being target not met, green being target met and amber being above target.

My query is can I get the grade column to automatically change to the same colors as well.  This way I can hide the formula columns and the teachers need only see the target column and the grade 1 column, with the grade 1 column showing the correct colour code compared to the target column.

target   score   grade 1   score   diff
5a   4   4a   1   -3
5b   3   5a   4   1
5c   2   6a   7   5
6a   7   6a   7   0
6b   6   7c   8   2
6c   5   7b   9   4

Really hope you can help as I can then cascade this to all the faculties within the school as we are all struggling with this one!

Many thanks

Lisa
