Thread: Format alternate cells

    I have a spreadsheet of about 500 rows and additional rows are inserted every now and then. To make it easier to read when printed off, I want to shade alternate rows. Any idea how to do this - except manually?

    Thanks, Lisa (UK)

    Highlight your area. Choose conditional formatting from the format menu. Change the drop down box to formula.

    enter the formula
    =MOD(ROW(),2)=0
    and select what color you want to highlight from the patterns tab.

    good luck
