Hi,

How can I write a formula to highlight rows C-E , if they contain values in column N.

I cannot use 'Conditional Formatting' as I have many values in column N.

Many thanks

Convert text numbers to real numbers
Select a column containing text numbers. Press Alt+D E F to quickly convert text to numbers. Faster than "Convert to Number"

"highlight rows C-E"... Aren't C-E Columns?

Are you looking for particular values or just any value?
If any value, you CAN use Conditional Formatting, and it is pretty easy, i.e.
Code:
=$N1<>""

Sorry I meant I want to highlight the rows in columns C to E if it contains the value in column N.

Did you see my reply? It should do that.
Simply select columns C through E in all the rows you want this to apply to, and enter the Conditional Formatting formula as it applies to the first row in your selection.
So, if you select range C3:E100, the Conditional Formatting formula you would use is:
Code:
=$N[COLOR=#ff0000]3[/COLOR]<>""
