I have a file in excel 2010 with a lot of conditional formatting but when I send this to a colleague who only has 2007 he does not see any of the conditional formatting. Is anyone aware of this happening and is there a fix? I have searched for the last hour and cant see anything on this.

Ah - that explains it. 2010 allows you to refer directly to another worksheet in the CF formula, but prior versions do not. You have to use named ranges to bypass that limitation.
