I have a colulm (X) that contains either a 1 or a 2

If COlumn X =2, I want to shade all the cells in that row (A thru X) in grey

Any thoughts

### Excel Facts

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

- Highlight the first row (A thru X) and then go into conditional formatting
- Choose the 'use a formula option' and in the box that appears type =\$X1=2
- Hit the Format button and select your formatting options
- 'OK' yourself out of that function
- Copy and Paste FORMATTING ONLY the first row all the way down thru all rows that need this conditional formatting.

Give it a whirl #### yellowcabguy
