    Brian,

    When you try to set up the same cond format for eeach cell in the range interest, you need to use relative addressing: e.g., A1 and not $A$1.

    When

    =A1=MIN($A$1:$A$4)

    in cond format is applied applied to $A$1:$A$4, the formula becomes:

    =A1=MIN($A$1:$A$4) in A1,

    =A2=MIN($A$1:$A$4) in A2,

    =A3=MIN($A$1:$A$4) in A2,and

    =A4=MIN($A$1:$A$4) in A4.

    By the way, it checks whether a given cell value is equal to the MIN value of A:A4.

    Mahalo,

    I understand now!

    So if I want to compare values to A1 or want a value lower than in A1, would I use =$a$1=min?

    Populate B1:B4 with numbers and also enter a number in A1.

    Select now B1:B4, use

    =B1<$A$1

    as the formula in cond format & select formatting you want.

    Now any cell in B1:B4 with a value lower than the value in A1 will show the formatting you applied.

    Is there a way to highlight the 10 highest numbers in a column.
