Question
Am trying to set up conditional formatting for a skins sheet for my golf league. Skins being the lowest value in a range. I need the lowest value only highlighted. If there are duplicates of the same lowest value I don't need it highlighted. Skins is recognized only if it is the lowest single value. In other words, if 2 out of 24 people had a low score on a hole of 4, there is no skin. If only one person received a 4 for that hole it would be classified as a skin and I would want it highlighted. I also have to do this for each individual hole. There are 18 holes on a typical golf course. I can highlight highest and lowest, but I need lowest only, if it in fact the single low score for that hole. Thanks, Kurt

You are in luck, I am a golfer also, so I am very familiar with skins games, having run a game for years in the World Amateur golf tournament in Myrtle Beach which is held the week before labor day.  If you are not playing in it you should consider it.  http://www.worldamgolf.com/, ck it out.

As to your question.  What you need is a multiple conditioned formatting solution.  I find the formulas for that very tough to write, and even tougher to explain in an answer on this forum.

To make is easier, I have created a workbook that does what you want.  Send me your e-mail address and I will send it to you.  Mine is RIRSTRESS@AOL.COM
Put allexperts skins game in the subject.
