Formatting an empty cell

I'm using conditional formatting to format cells with a value less than 80 to make them red for quick identification. This works so any value less the 80 becomes red.

However, blank/empty cells are also turning red (which I don't want). Is there a formula that identifies an empty cell and I could than use "Stop if True" so it stop before looking for cells with less than 80?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Have you tried using the 'Highlighted Cell Rules' - 'Between'?
make your left entry 0.00001 to 80
?

Sure
=A$2=""
with Stop if True
works fine for me.
Alternatively
=AND(A$2<80,A$2<>"")
