I have for example cell values like this: column A has test1 etc. and column B has numbers
test1      1
test2      2
test3      3
test4      4

Row test1 and test2 have background color of green and Row test3 and test4 have background color of yellow. When I sort from highest to lowest the background color follows the rows which is what I don't want to happen.  So Row test3 and test4 are at the top with a background of yellow, but I need them to stay green.

Could you look at this problem in another way? Could you say, for example, that you always want rows 3 and 4 colored green? In this case you could apply conditional formatting to your entire table with the condition being =OR(ROW()=3,ROW()=4). Regardless of how you sort the same rows would retain the same color.
