You can use the **custom formula** function in Google Sheets to apply conditional formatting to cells based on multiple conditions.

The following examples show how to use the custom formula function in the following scenarios:

**1. Conditional Formatting with OR logic**

**2. Conditional Formatting with AND logic**

Let’s jump in!

**Example 1: Conditional Formatting with OR Logic**

Suppose we have the following dataset in Google Sheets:

Suppose we’d like to highlight each of the cells in the **Team** column where the name is “Spurs” or “Rockets.”

To do so, we can highlight the cells in the range** A2:A11**, then click the **Format** tab, then click **Conditional formatting**:

In the **Conditional format rules** panel that appears on the right side of the screen, click the **Format cells if** dropdown, then choose **Custom formula is**, then type in the following formula:

=(A2="Spurs")+(A2="Rockets")

Once you click **Done**, each of the cells in the **Team** column that are equal to “Spurs” or “Rockets” will automatically be highlighted:

**Example 2: ****Conditional Formatting with AND Logic**

Suppose we’d like to highlight each of the cells in the **Team** column where the name is “Spurs” and corresponding value in the **Points** column is greater than 15.

In the **Conditional format rules** panel, click the **Format cells if** dropdown, then choose **Custom formula is**, then type in the following formula:

=AND(A2="Spurs", B2>15)

Once you click **Done**, each of the cells in the **Team** column that are equal to “Spurs” and where the corresponding value in the **Points** column is greater than 15 will automatically be highlighted:
