Exprerts,

I have a spreadsheet that I am doing conditional formatting.  The number of rows may vary on subsequent rows.  
Example:
If there is an error identified by an "X"  in column V, column Q is highlighted in yellow.

I am currently manually inputting to format rows $Q$2:$Q$151. Is there a way I can format so that I don't have to explicitly define each time based on the number of rows.

Conditional formatting based on formula:
=IF($V1="X",TRUE,FALSE)

If the rows are added just below, then I thing the applied range should auto expand....

Apply that to the whole column $Q:$Q...

Screenshot...screenshot is showing with it applied to Q3... formula above is correct for applying to the whole column (with $V1 instead of $V3)
