Often you may want to apply conditional formatting to cells whose values fall between two specific values in Excel.
The following example shows exactly how to do so.
Example: Conditional Formatting if Between Two Values
Suppose we have the following dataset that contains information about various basketball teams:
Suppose we would like to highlight each value in the points column where the value is between 10 and 20.
To do so, highlight the values in the range B2:B14, then click the Conditional Formatting icon on the Home tab, then click Highlight Cells Rules, then Between:
In the new window that appears, choose 10 as the lower value and 20 as the upper value:
One you click OK, the values in the points column that fall between 10 and 20 will automatically be formatted with a light red background and dark red text:
Note that you can also choose a different format for the cells.
For example, you could choose to format the cells using a green background with dark green text:
You can also choose Custom Format to specify a custom format style for the cells:
This allows you to pick any combination of styles you’d like for the background color and text color.
