Hi Trowa, noted and thanks for your response, I'll look into your formula, yes it should B1*1.1, you're right. I also note your respond days, appreciate and thanks once again. :)
i'll try to see how to move about without using VBA (if possible), I don't think i even know how to use it haha.

Hi Sorrow81,
First the conditional formatting:
Select Column B, go to conditional formatting and choose to use a formula:
=ISERROR(FIND("INC VAL",A1))=FALSE
For the calculation:
Since it's not usual nor advised to put both a value and formula in the same cell; you have 2 options.
1. The default way: Use Column C for the formula: =IF(ISERROR(FIND("INC VAL",A1))=FALSE,(B1*0.1)*B1,"")
2. Column B contains both a number (I chose 999) and the calculation: ="999 " & IF(ISERROR(FIND("INC VAL",A1))=FALSE,(999*0.1)*999,"")
NOTE: It is not possible to place a number in a cell and let a formula replace that value. It can be done using VBA.
NOTE2: For calculation you say '10% multiplication'. Lets say the value is 100, then 10% would be 10 and the multiplication of that would be 1000. Not sure if that is what you meant. If you meant 10% addition then the part of the formula (could also be a translation thing as English is not my native language):
(B1*0.1)*B1
should be:
B1*1.1
Best regards,
Trowa
