I found the formula for shading every other line, but I find that a bit hard to read. Is there a formula that will shade groups of rows? For instance, 3 unshaded, 3 shaded, 3 unshaded, etc. I am working with a simple list , so the formula can't be based on info contained in a cell. I'm purely going for readability here.

Thanks so much,
Sue

Sue, try Conditionally formatting using this formula:

=ROUNDUP(ROW()/3,0)=EVEN(ROUNDUP(ROW()/3,0))

and copy formatting down.
