check attached link for HTML codes.Place in the cell and select the display setting read content as "HTML"

other option you have to place the trend icons images in the server image folder and use stored images in conditional formatting.

Hi Amit, Great solution as it works in html but the users want something in bold. I tried to search but couldnt find HTML codes for heavy arrows for downdirection.

Second thing, do you think you are aware of some applet codes such as : = CHAR(9660 ) – DOWN ARROW, CHAR(9650 ) – UP ARROW but i can not find NE, NW, side arrows.


no very sure about the ascii codes for can increase the Text size/Bold in the text section in rule.
