Hi folks,

I'm trying to write a conditional format (Excel 2007) so that when any cell in, say, Col H displays "Yes" the entire row then has a background colour of, say light blue, applied.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Mel

i don't have 2007 to hand, but I know you can apply CF in much the same way as in earlier versions. You just need to select the area you want the CF to apply to and then get to the point where you define the formula to use with the CF (Insert>Names>Define>Formula Is in 2003) and use:

=$H1="yes"

assuming row 1 is the first row of your selected range - amend as appropriate.


EDIT: in 2007 it is Home tab> Conditional Formatting button>New Rule>Use formula> then type in the =$H1="yes"
