Highlight a row yellow if a cell contains TRUE
Hi again.
I've tried selecting the whole row, even the whole sheet but it still only highlights the individual cells and not the whole row.

Highlight a row yellow if a cell contains TRUE
You may have missed the earlier reply from Gary's Student:
Format > Conditional Formatting... > Formula is > =$A$1=true You need to use "Formula Is", not "Cell Value Is". If you want to copy the formatting from row to row, but apply the format to all columns, you may need: Format > Conditional Formatting... > Formula is > =A$1=true (with A1 being the active cell when you apply the CF)  David Biddulph "Mally" > wrote in message ... > Hi again. > > I've tried selecting the whole row, even the whole sheet but it still only > highlights the individual cells and not the whole row. > > Sorry to be a pest > > "Gary''s Student" wrote: > >> Select the entire row when you apply the conditional formatting. >>  >> Gary''s Student  gsnu200794 >> >> >> "Mally" wrote: >> >> > Hi >> > >> > This will change the cell to yellow but i need to be able to change the >> > WHOLE row to yellow. >> > >> > Kind Regards >> > >> > "Don Guillett" wrote: >> > >> > > Select the row number at the left before doing your conditional >> > > format >> > > >> > >  >> > > Don Guillett >> > > Microsoft MVP Excel >> > > SalesAid Software >> > > >> > > "Mally" > wrote in message >> > > ... >> > > > How do i highlight a whole row if the answer to a formula in a cell >> > > > = >> > > > TRUE. >> > > > >> > > > Kind Regards >> > > >> > >
