Hi - I am generating lists of cells that are being conditionally formatted e.g. A1, A2, A3, B1, B2 and B3. However, these cells can often be shortened e.g. A1:B3. Will the spreadsheets work quicker if they are given data that is specified as a range?

If so, is there a way of processing lists of cells (such as my A1, A2, A3, B1, B2 and B3) so they are automatically converted into range notation? (Does this exist?!)

Thank you for any comments!

What is the shortcut key for Format Selection?
Ctrl+1 (the number one) will open the Format dialog for whatever is selected.
