Conditional formatting

Top  Previous  Next

Conditional formatting lets you change the display attributes of a data value depending on its value.

For example you may want to show negative numbers in red text, or you may want to highlight a field if it contains the value "Inactive".

 

This example shows conditional highlighting, that turns items that negative in the back order column red and bold.
