I'm looking to hide certain cells when they contain "No Requirement", after researching online all I can find is how to hide a whole row or column, not just three or four cells on the whole sheet. Is this even possible?

  3. the content can easily be edited

This coloration can be implemented with Conditional Formatting with the FormulaIs option:

=AND(NOT(ISERROR(E2)),E2="No Requirement")

  • As you see, there are several ways to make individual cell's content invisible. I personally always use it in following ranking: 1. Formula to show either result or "" (easy to find and understand for later readers) 2. Number format ;;; (errors visible, little effort) 3. Conditional formatting (higher effort, risk of unwanted splitting into more and more conditions) 4. Font Color like background color (errors not visible)
  • That's a good idea. Conditional formatting could be used to accomplish this on a large scale, if need be.
  • Conditional formatting would mean that setting the condition ="No Requirement" would only execute for cells with "No Requirement", meaning errors and any other value not equal to "No Requirement" would also show. It is a good idea.

  • An if() statement of the form : =IF(A1="No requirement","",A1) will put the contents of cell A1 unless it contains "No requirement"...
