    Default Color Equations

    Anybody know the syntax for multiple colors in a color equation? Or if it's even possible.

    Example:

    IF(EQP_STATUS="Cleared","White on Red","")

    I'd like to add

    IF(EQP_STATUS="Missing Docs","Black on Yellow","") but I can't figure out the proper way to state it.

    You nest the if() statements like

    IF(EQP_STATUS="Cleared","White on Red",IF(EQP_STATUS="Missing Docs","Black on Yellow",""))
