Customer Question

I have an online Excel 2010 computer test with this question:

Add a conditional formatting rule to the selected range in which a green rimmed traffic light icon is applied to a value equal to or greater than 2000 and a yellow rimmed traffic light is applied to a value between 1000 and 1999.

How on earth do you do this?

Hi,

 

I will be happy to help you with this. Would you like me to send you a sample file with the conditional formatting set up on it, or do you just need then the instructions

 

 

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I think the instructions would be best as long as they are step by step. If I make one wrong click on this test there are no second chances. (Its a 60 question exam and this is the only one I cant figure out on my own.)

Expert:  John D replied 2 years ago.

Ok will prepare the instructions in a moment. In the meantime here is a sample file with the conditional formatting which will help you understand the instructions

Its supposed to be a "green" rimmed traffic light and a "yellow" rimmed traffic light, not black rimmed.

These are the data values:

I tried your solution using the correct icon set and it didn't work on the practice test.
Expert:  John D replied 2 years ago.

No I think you are mistaken about the rim colors. Here are the available options
