Hello,

How do I get Text in a Cell to Change from Black to White, based on data?

The cell already contains a formula to extract data from elsewhere. I need that cell text to then be either Black or White, depending on if there is text or numbers.

Text = Black
Numbers = White

The formula being used already is ='Blank Daily Tracking'!E89

I have conditional formatting icon, but don't see which is the best way to set the IF clause up.

Thanks!

Select NEW Rule>Use a Formula to determine which cells to format. Place your formula in the Edit description box, and click on the FORMAT BUTTON! VIOLA! Go for it!!

THanks for the quick reply!!! I actually sat at my desk for about 30 minutes and was able to figure it out. I was able to quickly format the 0s to White. The date was a challenge because you can't go to "date" to make the format change. I went to "unique" cell value and changed it that way.

When I think about it, it was relatively easy!

Thanks!
