Hello,

I want an entire row to be highlighted by a chosen color based on the contents of a cell. E.g. If a cell in column K=yes, format entire row with a color.
Thanks in advance
 

Excel Facts

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Select the entire row(s), goto Format>Conditional Formatting..., select formula is, enter this formula

=$K1="Yes"

and format as required.

Note change 1 in the formula to reflect the first row of data.
