    Re: Cel color

    You can use Conditional Formatting.
    Assuming you want to check in column A and starting from A1.
    Select Rules, based on formula.

    =ISFORMULA(A1) set one colour for formula cells
    =A1<>"" set another colour for cells with a value
    =NOT(ISFORMULA(A1)) for any cell (including blank) which does not contain a formula
