Auto-copy formating of cells

  • Hello,

    I have been learning excel and found it interesting using the functions. Doing so, stuck in a situation and I am here again seeking for some help.
    Please fetch the attached file for perusal. My Team.xlsx

    Intro :
    Column A : Name of member
    Column B : Activity Status (Active, Idle, Left)
    Using conditional formating I have set colour codes to the Column B to Green, Yellow, and Red respectively.

    Problem :
    I wish to set the cell format of all the names in column A to automatically copy to the adjoining cell format as in column B.
    So as when I update the data in column B, the format of the respective person should be automatically updated.

    Please guide me.
    Thanks

  • Heyy buddy, that formulas helped.


    I am preparing this sheet on a professional level and I dont want a dummy or a reference column to show up and spoil the datasheet. Of course I can hide the reference column, but I was looking for an alternative solution.
    Offset command helped me achieve the formatting of column A directly and I no longer needed the Column C.

    Thank you for your guidance. It helped. :)

  • Glad to hear you could solve your problem :)


    Column C was only shown to let you see your formula and double-check the result ;)


    Thanks for your Thanks

  • When sending me the file earlier, you could have mentioned in the reply that the column C was a double-check and didnt stand a role in the formula.


    So in that case, your solution was perfect! :love:

    Thank you again :thumbup:
