Okay, I am working on an example for you. Please wait. Thanks.

Here you go.

if anything is typed into AG then the row will turn green?

Yes, you can test it.

Oh, the cell, not the whole row.

Do you want the whole row to be highlighted in green?

ive managed to sort it now ... but the other thing i am stuck on ... i need a column C to be the time in days between A and B for example
Customer: replied 9 days ago.

Good to know that.

A quick answer to your new matter is to use "-" (minus) to calculate the days between two dates.

However, as it is a new matter, as per the rules of this site, please kindly ask a new question to address the new matter. Thanks.
