Hi all,

In cell A4 I have two conditional formats. Both check cell B4 for either a "YES" or a "NO". Depending on the result found the change the background colour of the cell green for "YES" red for "NO"

I want to copy these two conditions so that all other cells in column A have the same format but they are checking the adjacent cell in column B. So A5 checks B5, A6 checks B6 etc.

I'm working with excel 2003 and I tried using format painter but all the cells are still just checking B4. Am I doing something wrong?

Please help

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.
