I'm not sure how to do it, as far as writing the formula, but here is what I am trying to do:

I have a little table on my database that has a list of 6 vendors, each with a start and stop date. I want them all to be color filled grey, unless I enter something in the field Vendor One, then i want the start date field and stop date field to be white. I can do the conditionally formatting that says "if not empty" then make it white, but I need something in a forumla that says basically "if Vendor One's field is NOT empty, then make the Vendor One Start Date white and the Vendor One Stop Date white".

Any help would be greatly apprecaited! Thanks.

I'm having difficulty seeing the distinction between the two explanations. They sound the same to me?

Are these portals or normal fields?

Here is a simple file as I understand the first part of you question.
