    Simple Conditional Formating Help Required - If Blank then Red Bold text required

    Hello Friends



    My Requirement is simple. By using Conditional Formatting if the Cell L20 is blank then the text in the Cell N20 should be red (And bold if possible).

    The N20 cell carries a formula.

    thanks

    Do you mean L20 is empty, or contains the word "blank" as in your example?
