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

Default fill a color to a row

I have a different problem. When I select a column and click the Conditional
Formatting command from the home tab in Excel 2007, my formula will not work.
I have a column of numbers ranging from 15 to 35. I inputted the formula
=$A$1:$A$20=25 to format all cells in column A having a value of 25 or
higher. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong, but it isn't working. My Excel
Option (Formula Tab - Calculations is also set at Automatic.) Can someone
help me
