    Use conditional formatting to turn cell red if any cells above are blank

    Hello -

    I have a formula in A56 that adds cells A1:A54. I want to use conditional formatting to highlight A56 if any of the cells in A1:A54 are blank. I am unsure how to do this.

    Thank you for your help!

    Select A56 and go to Format|Conditional Formatting

    Select Formula Is from 1st drop down menu

    Enter formula =Countblank(A1:A54)>0

    Click Format and choose colour from Pattern tab
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
