This should give you the basics: MS Excel: Change the font color based on the value in the cell in Excel 2010

You want to set a rule based on the rule type "Format only cells that contain" then set it up to look for specific text.

Set up 2 rules, one for Ok and the other for Yes. Doesn't matter about the case, it will work regardless.

Yes, you would use something like this in the formula for your conditional formatting

Format... Color

And make sure you set it to apply to all the cells you want to format

The formula allows you to set the range that the formatting applies to... See the attached image...
