A small Saturday evening challenge for you.
I've done some conditional formatting with a formula. Works like a charm.
Based on the value in cell E4 the range E5:E6 changes colour.
Now I wish to copy/paste or drag the formula to be valid in the next column. but based on F4.
This seems to work but it will not automatically change the reference to the next column. I played around with the dollar signs but it did not seem to help.
The final idea would be to have different colours for a range of values based on the value in row 4, but each column with reference to its own row 4.
