# conditional formatting gliche.

One of my conditional formatting rules is as follows:

If value of the cell is between 4.5 and 5.0 then format the cell "green".
The problem is the formula calculates the result as 4.497947455 (which
rounded is technically 4.5) and this cell does not format conditionally to
green.

Any suggestions on how to get around that?

Hi,

It would have helped to see your CF formula but maybe this

=AND(ROUND(A1,2)>=4.5,ROUND(A1,2)<=5)

Here is the formula:

=(SUM(J12*\$J\$15)+SUM(K12*\$K\$15))/SUM(\$J\$15:\$K\$15)

Perhaps you could explain to us in what way you expect
=(SUM(J12*\$J\$15)+SUM(K12*\$K\$15))/SUM(\$J\$15:\$K\$15)
to differ from
=(J12*\$J\$15+K12*\$K\$15)/SUM(\$J\$15:\$K\$15) ?

Or perhaps you intended to say
=SUM(J12*\$J\$15,K12*\$K\$15)/SUM(\$J\$15:\$K\$15) ?
or
=SUMPRODUCT(J12:K12,\$J\$15:\$K\$15)/SUM(\$J\$15:\$K\$15) ?

Just remember that if you give the SUM function only one argument, it has
nothing to SUM it with.
