I have a spreadsheet with about 10 rows of 20 cells. I would like to put conditional formating on each row to this affect:

If cell $b2=ProductX, then highlight the entire row blue.

Can someone help me do this? I saw someone do this without using VBA and just the stardard conditional formating menu a few weeks ago, but I cannot remember how he did it.

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

This is the formula that I am trying to make work:

=($C$12=" TOTAL BRAND X")

The value in cell c12 is a link to another cell. I tried pasting a value there to see if that was the problem and that did not work either. Any idea what the problem could be?

In cell A2, "Format/Conditional Format/Formula is: =$B2="ProductX". Then click the "Format" button, select the "Pattern" tab, select your color, then "O.K", "O.K".
Copy cell A2 and "Edit/Paste Special/Formats" to cells B2 thru T2 (your 20 cells accross). Then hightlight cells A2 thru T2 and "Edit/Paste Special/Formats" to cells A3 thru the end of your range (T??).

Highlight your column range i.e. A1:X1 or the whole row.

In conditional formatting enter

=COUNTIF($A$1,"=PRODUCTNAME")

I figured it out!!! Underconditional formating I was using "Cell Is" instead of "Formula Is". It works with "Formula Is".

Thanks for your help!
