I have a spreadsheet where I want to highlight a the row of cells if any one of the cells has any data in it. Is there a better way to do it then using =(NOT(ISBLANK(#ref)))+(NOT(ISBLANK(#ref)))...?

Thanks, I will have to add it to my retinue, =COUNTA($B5:$L5)>0 works down the rows. Definitely simplifies things.
