I am trying to use conditional formatting to highlight the complete row within a data set but then I use the formula in conditional formatting, it only highlights the first column. The formula I am using is searching for the word total. Please see the formula below being used.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks.

=ISNUMBER(SEARCH($O$3,$A$4:$A$1840))
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.
