Hello,

I am looking for a way to create conditional formatting for the available Qty column within Customer Order Lines. I am looking to have the cell highlight green if the value is greater than the Sales Qty (BUY_QTY_DUE). I am trying to put in the below formula, but it doesn’t look like conditional formatting has the ability to compare the value against a different column value. Is that accurate, or is there a way to accomplish this that I am missing?

 

 

Thank you,
Matt

That's acurate. You can create a custom field with your condition and then use that to colour the line the way you want though.

Can you explain how to create conditional formatting for a custom field? What screen is it done from?

What I mean is that you can create a custom field that does a calculation or looks up a value e.g. IF 2 > 1 THEN 5 else 2

Then you setup your conditional formatting rule using the custom field e.g. when custom field =5 paint the line green.
