Conditional formatting is a bit more complex. Use the drop_down menu to select from a range of options, like inserting helpful visual icons to represent status or completion, or changing the color of different rows. Most important are the conditional rules, which are created with a simple logic. For example, lets say you have a column with data in A1 through A3, and A4 holds the sum of these three cells. You could place formatting on A4 with a rule that says “if A4 > 0, then highlight A4 green.” Then, you could add another rule that says “if A4 < 0, then highlight A4 red.” Now you have a quick visual reference where green = a positive number and red = a negative number, which will change based on what you enter into A1, A2, and A3.
The Format paintbrush copies everything related to the formatting of a selected cell. When you select a cell and click Format, you can then highlight a whole range of cells, and each one will take on the formatting of the original cell, without changing their values.
G. Row and Column Formatting Tools: The Insert drop_down menu puts cells, rows, or columns before or after a selected area on the sheet, and Delete removes them. The Format drop_down lets you change the height of rows and the width of columns. It also has options for hiding and unhiding certain sections.
