I have a spreadsheet with some conditional formatting set up. I frequently recieve new data to add to my spreadsheet, but due to the formatting on the incoming data spreadsheet, when I copy and paste the data into my own spreadsheet, my conditional formatting doesnt seem to take.

Any Ideas if there is a way of copying data across and ignoring old formatting (such as cell colour). OR getting my conditional formatting to overwrite any of the incoming data's formatting???

Thanks.

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.
