Hello Karthikeyan,

First of all, click on cell B1. Go to the home tab and click on conditional formatting.
Select "New Rule."

In the "New Formatting ' window which opens, select "Use a formula to determine which cells to format."

In the box in which above it says "Format values where this formula is true", place the following formulae (make sure that cell B1 is always highlighted). You will need to repeat these steps for each formula:-

=IF(A1="xxx",B1>10,IF(A1="yyy",B1<10)) then click on the format button below it and select a red colour. Click OK. This will take you back to the "New formatting" box. Click OK again.

*NEW RULE (Follow the same steps as above).

=IF(A1="xxx",B1<10,IF(A1="yyy",B1>10))
then click on the format button below it and select a green colour. Click OK. This will take you back to the "New formatting" box. Click OK again.


Hopefully this is what you were wanting.

Regards,
vcoolio.
