In conditional formatting New Rule under "Use a formula to determine which cell to format I input

=ROW(C6)=ActiveRow, I then set my range at $C$6:$CG$1000 but it not working in the "SIP" spreadsheet, however it does work in in the same workbook but in spreadsheets "WIP" and "CHANGER ORDERS"

There is a VBA code performing another function of transferring data to another sheet and I do have some other conditional formatting in this spreadsheet but they are single cell functions.

Any thoughts as to why this "SIP" particular sheet it doesn't want to work?
