Formula Help

Hi
Using 2010
I have a spreadsheet with 276 rows (can be variable)
In columns K,L & N,  I have financial amounts some of which are zero
or blank.
What I would like to do is when K,L & N are all zero or blank in the
same row is to highlight this row in colour so that it is easily
recognised

Anyone help please
Thank you

select your table => conditional Formatting => Formula:
=SUM($K1,$L1,$N1)=0

Thanks Claus,
When I click conditional formatting there is no 'formula' option?

Conditional Formatting => New Rule => Use a *formula* to determine which
cells to format

Claus, formula hits some lines , misses others & highlights some lines
with numbers in them
I checked that the column names are K, L & N against the formula
=SUM($K1,$L1,$N1)=0 - so I'm really puzzled as to what's wrong

My spreadsheet has columns from left to right
A, B E, K, L & N. as I removed some unnecessary columns
Perhaps that's what's messing things up? (only guessing)

Then what do I do?

compare your conditional formatting with mine and find the error.
Or paste your data in my workbook and look if the conditional formatting
is correct.

On a related note, can the "financial amounts" be sometimes negative?

If so, then the sum might be zero by combining a positive with a negative.

So perhaps consider a conditional formula like:
=AND(K1=0,L1=0,N1=0)

Thanks for your reply
There are no zeros anywhere in the spreadsheet, I looking for a line
of 3 Zeros in adjacent colums K, L & N
