    Two Tricky Conditional Formatting Questions



      Two Tricky Conditional Formatting Questions


      Hi There,

      I need some help on a few conditional formatting issues that I have.

      1. Is there a way to add conditional formatting to a range of cells without deleting (overriding) the current conditional formatiing of a field.

      Basically I have a Formula based "self" referncing and I want to apply it to a range of fields, some of these fields already have other formulas that I would rather not recreate.

      2. This one is a bit harder. Many of my fields have data valadtion form a few different related values value lists. As this list dynamically updates I want a conditional formula, or script for that matter to tell me when a field that has had data entered into from the list, is no longer available in that list.

      For example

      1. The field Shows::Rope Circle, has the choices from a related values value list of ..... John, Fred, Tom, Sam.

      2. I enter sam in this field

      3. Sam calls in sick and is removed from the related value list

      4. I filemaker to tell me that Sam is no longer a valid choice for this field.

      Doews anyone know if this is possible?

      Thanks for your help.
