Have a spreadsheet and when a completion date goes in a cell I want the entire row of cells to change from the white background to a green background. Tried with conditional formatting but was only able to change the single cell not the whole row. Any ideas, thanks in advance.
 

Excel Facts

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.
Welcome to the Board!

If you highlight the entire row, you can use something like this in Conditional Formatting-->Formula Is-->=$A1<>"".

Just adjust the range & criteria to suit.

Hope that helps,

Similar Question - Highlighting a Row

I have a similar question. I would like to highlight a whole row based upon the value of a column. For example, if I have a column with 6 values, for example 30, 35, 40, 60, 60, 75, I would like the rows with the value of 60 to be highlighted/formatted grey.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

No problem.

Highlight your range of rows and goto Format-->Conditional Formatting-->Formula is-->=$A1=60-->Format as desired. Where $A is the target column.

HTH,
