Select the row number at the left before doing your conditional format

Select the entire row when you apply the conditional formatting.

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

OK you never said WHICH cell so I will assume you want to color row 3 if
cell b3 =3
1. Select the row number at the left
2. formatconditional formatFORMULA is=$b$3=3format as desired.

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)
