Conditional Formatting


E

Esradekan

I use conditional formatting a lot. Many times on a single worksheet. I use the IF formula to decide if the condition is true or false. Problem is,to save time, i 'auto fill' the conditional formatting. In conditional formatting though, when I enter the formula, the cell references become 'fixed' (ie $ use). Because I use auto fill, I dont want the $ used. Is there a way I can avoid using it?

Well.., just don't type the $ symbol when you enter the formula. If it
appears as the result of selecting ranges then edit that out using F2
while your in the edit box.
