    Highlighting Duplicate Cells

    Hello.

    I have a column of data in which I'd like to highlight duplicate values by changing font/cell colour. I achieved this by using Conditional Formatting > Highlight Cell Rules > Duplicates Values...

    This does the job, however I would like it to ignore 0 and "" values, effectively not formatting those cells. How do I go about doing the same thing as the built-in function but ignoring zeroes and "" (empty, no text)?

    Thank you very much for your help!

    P.S.: In the attached file I used the 0;-0;;@ trick to hide values equal to 0.

    Try

    =AND(A1<>"",A1>0,COUNTIF(A:A,A1)>1)

    You could add a second additional conditional format using a formula (to apply no format if zero or blank)

    In manage conditional formats, tick STOP IF TRUE for this additional rule.
