Hey there!

I’m having trouble getting conditional formatting to work on cells that link to another which contain the “concatenate” formula.

I have one sheet named “overview” at the beginning of my spreadsheet where I copied the results of the other sheets, so I don’t have to click on each individual sheet to see the data I want.

For example I have two sheets named “Red” & “Blue” that contain a list of the date and amount of balls sold.

The formula for C7 is *=IF(SUM($C$3:$C$5)>1;CONCATENATE(SUM($C$3:$C$5);" Balls");CONCATENATE(SUM($C$3:$C$5);" Ball"))*

C7 works as I intended, it displays the Sum of C3,C4 & C5 and adds “Balls” if the sum is greater than 1, if not it adds “Ball” to the sum.

I copied/linked that cell with value of C7 into my “overview” sheet where I also copied the C7 value of the “Blue Balls” sheet.

They’re cells C4 & C5 in the overview sheet.

Now I want to conditional format these two cells so that the MAX & MIN value of C4 & C5 are colored red/green but when I try that with “cell value > is equal to > MIN($C$4:$C$5)” it doesn’t change the color of the cells.

I figure that is because C4 & C5 aren’t considered “numbers” by LibreOffice calc and instead are treated as text or something.

Does anybody know how to fix this or work around this?
