Hello All,

I have a formatting question that needs to happen in a worksheet……There is a hidden calculated row. Conditional Format: if this row has a non-zero numeric value, then the cells below it are bolded

For example: if hiddenSumRow = 0 for myCol1, then numberforNextMonth for myCol1 is regular font and Unbolded.

For example: if hiddenSumRow <> 0 for myCol2, then numberforNextMonth for myCol2 is a bold  font

Thank you
