Rules.

To begin defining conditional formatting rules for a column, click new conditional rule to create and specify parameters for the condition.

Condition type.

This is determined by what operation you want to use to set the condition. Use text or a cell for the condition, and depending on the type, select a comparison operator. For instance:

Operator.
For the Text type, the operator can begin with; end with; contains; not contains.
For the Cell in type, the operator can be equals; not equals; greater than; greater than or equal; less than; less than or equal; between

After you have specified all the parameters, click Apply and the condition will be added to the list.

Example:

For example, our task is to find out which of the employees costs more than $ 70,000 per year for the company.

First, let’s go to the “Salary” column settings.

Conditional formating

In the second step, go to the “conditional” tab and create a new condition.
Then we will indicate all the necessary parameters, in our case, is “If the contents of a cell are greater than or equal to 70,000, then its contents will be highlighted with a” red “background color, and the text of the cell with” white “.

Click apply and save settings.
Now employees with a salary equal to or greater than 70,000 will be highlighted in the specified color in the table.

Example condotions

Each column can have an unlimited number of formatting rules, to see the created column rules go to the already familiar path column setting-> conditional, and here you can add new conditions, as well as delete or edit the previously created conditions.

Now that the table has been created, the columns have been added and configured, it’s time to move on to customizing the table options.
