If you want to start in row one, select B1 and go to Conditional Formatting-New Rule-Use a formula to determine which cells to format. In the box under Format values where this formula is true enter =$B1="COMPLETE". Select format, under the Font tab select strikethrough and under the Fill tab select the shade of gray you want. When done select OK. Copy that cell and select the cells in the row you want to format. If you want to format the entire row, select the row number. Right-click that row and select Paste Special-Format.

If you convert the Data to an Excel Table then Formats(including Conditional Formatting) will automatically copy down. So set up the Rule as above and the formatting will copy automatically.
