    Question Different colours in rows

    Hello,

    Is there a way to have different colour rows similar to how you can set up Table Styles in Word?

    I want to have each row alternate between 2 colours so it's easier to read.

    Thanks for all the help!

    -Dave

    Re: Different colours in rows

    You can use 2 conditional formatting rules.

    =MOD(ROW(),2)=1

    and

    =MOD(ROW(),2)=0

    each with its own colour.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    Have a look at this page

    Please don't quote posts unnecessarily. It makes the thread hard to read and clogs the posts. Thx
