    Question Using Conditional Formatting to format range based on one cell

    I am working with the Conditional Formatting, which is fine for one cell. Here is what I am trying to do:

    IF cell in $A1 = 1 then bold $B2:$M2 and apply solid line border to top of cell ranges.

    I have tried conditional formatting but it only formats the cells in column A. And I can't seem to find a BOLD statement for the cell formulas...

    thanks in advance for your input...

    Select cells B2 to M2 and go to Format|Conditional Formatting...

    Select Formula Is from 1st drop down menu and enter formula: =$A1=1

    Click Format and in the Font tab select Bold from the Font Style combobox.

    Then go to the Border tab and select the Bordering you want (Note: No bold borders available).

    Click Ok

    Click Ok again to finish.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
