I am trying to use conditional formatting to test the value of column F equal to blanks or null. IF condition true I would like to highlight the entire row in "Yellow Fill".

What is the syntax for the conditional statement?

You can use:

=SUBSTITUTE($F1," ","")=""

which replaces the blank spaces with nullstring, if any exist and compares the result to nullstring.

See attached demonstration
