Can you tell me how it works, when we have different columns included in the conditions such as, salary greater than 3000, State in TX, DEPT in STR, etc then how can we give this condition, to turn these cells to red.

you need to select only that column on which you want to calculate you.

I have another problem now, I want only first cell of the row to turn red, if any of the cells in the row is empty. Can we do that?

No santosh, I think you did not got my point, I want first cell of the row to turn red, if there are any empty cells in the complete row.
That means, if I have empty cell in 3rd column of first row, then first cell of that row should turn to red. Hope you got my point. Please explain me how to do that?
