Changing Shading when a Column Value Changes in Excel

When you want to change the shading of a column in Excel based on the value in another column, you can use conditional formatting. To do this, first select the cells you want to format. Then, go to the Home tab and click on Conditional Formatting in the Styles group. Select Highlight Cell Rules and then choose Duplicate Values.

In the Duplicate Values dialog box, select the column you want to use for conditional formatting and then choose a formatting option. You can also specify how many duplicates should be found before the cell is shaded. Once you've selected your options, click OK.

Your cells will now be shaded based on the value in the column you selected. If the value in the column changes, the shading will also change. This can be a useful way to visually track changes in data over time.
