Hi!
I need help, I'm trying to come up of a way that when I type a number on a certain cell, the cells underneath it will be highlighted. For example, I type 5 on cell B2, cells B3 to B7 should turn yellow. Any ideas? or is this even possible? :LOL:

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN
