Microsoft Word/Word 2007


Good Morning-
I am wondering if I can use conditional formatting in the cells of two tables I have in Word 2007.  I have numbers in each cell of the table and need them to appear red, yellow or green depending on the cell value.

Conditional formatting is a feature of excel, and it's not included in Word - you have options though - you could insert linked cells to excel which MAY resolve it for you - this has been discussed at but it doesn't really add much to what I've told you.
