Default fill a color to a row

Conditional formatting - new rule - use formula to determine which cells to
format -
Formula is =$H$6=1
Applies to =$A$6:$J$6

I tried selecting the range then using conditional formula.
but I thing my formula is not working as I expect.

=IF(AND(H3=1,I3=0) -- I use this on formula place in conditional formatting
in Excel 2007.
If I can make this formula work I'll modify it to have 3 conditions.

I3 has a vaule of 1 mark the row Green
H3 has a vaule of 1 mark the row Yellow
I3 AND H3 has a vaule of 1 mark the row Green

Sorry - I missed out the formatting bit itself

Select format and chose fill. What you can do to enhance it if you don't
want the 1 to be visible is to format font the same colour as the fill.

Thank you Russel, it worked.
But still need to have 3 conditions. Are they doable on one formula? if not
can I use priority thing on them? cause i need to make

I3 has a vaule of 1 mark the row Green
H3 has a vaule of 1 mark the row Yellow
I3 AND H3 has a vaule of 1 mark the row Green

colors are not imprtant. single ones are not problem. but I3 and H3
condition, is it doable?

=IF(AND(H3=1,I3=0)
You've almost got it right, try:
=AND(H3=1,I3=0)
and format colour to suit

Hi Mns

try this...

Since you want to give a criteria so that colors whole row.
Assume you have a sample database as below..
Having this database you want to color the whole row when you update the
status column. Lets say when you fill status as open then whole row should be
RED.
Before using a formula use this criteria.
In separate column say in column E type as open then select whole column and
rename the range as updateR in the range naming exactly to left of formula
tool bar. then use the formula as =countif(updater,$c2).
type the above formula in conditional formatting new rule and fill the RED
color.


A B C
Names Tickets status
Donna Sev1 open
Martin sev2 open
Wes sev2 open
Peter sev3 closed
Rajesh sev3 closed
