Conditional Formatting in Excel 2007

Good day!

I am using a spreadsheet to track parts. I have successfully used the conditional formatting Dialog to highlight a row if the formula evaluates to a 'less than'.  But I don't want the rows to format if the target row is blank.

ie

Dialog Formula is   G1<F1  with turning row A1:K1 Yellow.  But I can'tfigure out how to prevent the formatting if G1 is blank!

I have tried to use an    if(F1="","",G1<F1) in the dialog formula box, but it doesn't work.

Any help appreciated.

Hello,

not quite sure I understand the setup, because there is some conflicting information

>> prevent the formatting if G1 is blank

>>  if(F1="","",G1<F1)

F1 or G1 ? Which one will be tested for blank?

In any case, see the attached file for an example. The conditional format applies to $A$1:$K$10 and the formula is

=AND(NOT(ISBLANK($F1)),$F1>$G1)

cheers, teylyn
