CONDITIONAL FORMATTING for cell A2:

if value in cell C3 is > than 500, then insert word "alert" in cell A2

what would the formula look like?
I know this is easy for some but not for me!

Thanks for any tips...

Thank you
doublewitt, Good afternoon.

"...CONDITIONAL FORMATTING for cell A2:..."
As the name says, Conditional Formatting only changes the FORMAT of a cell, not the content.
It works the aesthetic aspect of the cell.

For the formula:
A2 --> =IF(C3>500,"alert","")

Is this what you want?
I hope it helps.
