    Conditional Formatting Won't Highlight Rows

    I've been trying to highlight rows green when one of the cell values in that row is "TRUE" (linked to a checkbox), using conditional formatting. I've looked at over 10 tutorials, yet nothing happens when I enter the formula: =$I4="TRUE" (and I am changing the format to green). I highlighted the cells and I've also tried the formula for D3, I3, A3, and A1 in case it was being weird about selecting a certain cell. But alas, there are no highlights.

    I even followed one of the tutorials exactly; I recreated their chart in a new workbook with the same values in the same cells. I highlighted the cells they did and copy-pasted their formula.

    Nothing.

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong or if this is a problem with Excel itself. I've attached a sample; any tips?

    Welcome to the forum.

    There are no conditional formatting rules in the workbook to check.

    2202 is a release number - do you have MS365?

    CF rule for A3:

    =$I3=TRUE

    Applies to: $A$3:$K$27

    That worked, thank you! Do you know why it wasn't working before? Was it the quotations?
