Same problem as Steve and Conan here too:

“Anyone figured out how to have relative references in Conditional Formatting?

I want B1 to be green if greater than A1, and B2 to be green if greater than A2, etc. But when I fill down, the conditional formatting of all cells in column B point to A1.”

end quote

Anyone, please?

]]>(please? :-))

Going nuts trying figure out how to build a function that will round UP (or DOWN) when the value is less than a while number.

Any takers?

Thanks so much,

David

B6 has the following formula =SUM(D6:L6) where the values in D through L are times (hours and minutes).

I would like to be able to highlight in red any totals that exceed 30 hours. When I try to apply conditional formatting to B6, it doesn’t work.

Any suggestions or solution would be gratefully appreciated.

I’m using Numbers ’09

I can’t believe iWork engineers have not though about that.. ]]>

Anyone know how to do that?

“Unsupported conditional formatting on ‘n’ cells was removed …..”

]]>What I want to do is add ONLY certain numbers, for example: 1,2,2,2,3,3,2,1,1,3,1,2 … I’m working with a list of 1000 numbers, so I want Numbers to give me the SUM of the number os boxes with 1, 2 and 3. I’m trying to setup 3 different SUM functions to run through table and ADD according to what I want.

Any thoughts on this?

Cheers! ]]>

So, via triangulation, you can do anything. ]]>

So if the true condition was to check the results of a formula, then all that would be necessary would be the formula itself, and NOT starting with an implied (“the current cell is greater/less etc than ….”).

In other words, in its current form, you can’t set a value for the current cell if the results of some formula are true: the results of that formula (if you manage to enter one!) are compared to the current cell being formatted and the format applied if that comparison is true. ]]>

What I’m trying to input is the following (just an example):

Greater Than: ((SUM(Table1::B:B))/10)

I can’t seem to get it to work.

]]>You should be able to achieve this in Numbers ’09. (I say should only because I was a bit confused by your request… but my brain isn’t in a spreadsheet’y mood at the moment). I did just compare between Numbers ’09 and Numbers ’08 and ’08 does not allow you to enter in formulas for conditional formatting rules and Numbers ’09 does. I hope this helps and thanks for the feedback!
