    Cool Relative reference conditional formatting

    I am trying to make a conditional formatting formula that applies formatting based on whether the column A cell has a value.
    Basically, if the conditional formatting is applied to cells G3:L3 and A3 is blank (or value is blank/0) then apply formatting.

    I have attached an example (that doesn't work this way)

    How can I change the formula to do this?
