Supposedly, you can copy conditional formatting from row to row when using a formula as your conditional format, but I can't seem to get it to work without modifying my rules in every single row. I keep reading that you should be able to make some of your references relative and then copy down, but it's not working for me. I have a sample attached.
What I want to do is if the first cell in the row is blank, I want it to use a fill color to fill in Columns A through E. If the first cell is NOT blank, then I want it to use a different fill color in Columns A through E. So I want to set this formula in Row 1, and then copy it down several rows without having to modify the rules in each row. But whenever I modify my conditional formatting to be relative for either the formula or the "Applies to" part, then the conditional formatting doesn't work right.
Please let me know what I'm doing wrong. Thanks.
