Conditional Formatting Help

I have a spreadsheet where if cell K1 is not blank, then it colors cell A1 and so on....
So, if K2 is blank, it won't color A2, if K3 is not blank, it colors A3, etc.

Thank you

Start by clicking the cell that needs to be formatted,
1. Click Conditional Formatting in the "Styles" group
2. Select New Rule...
3. Select "Use Formula to determine which cells to format"
4. In the formula bar, type in    =ISBLANK(K1) = FALSE
5. Click Format and select the color you'd like the cell to be highlighted as if K1 is not blank
6. Click OK.

Edit:
To apply that conditional formula to the cells below it, click the cell with the formula and click "Format Painter" in the Clipboard group then click the cells below that cell.

How do I apply that conditional formatting to the other rows? row 2 will refer to K2, row 3 to K3 and so on?

I edited my first comment to show how but you might not have noticed that change.

To apply that conditional formula to the cells below it, click the cell with the formula and click "Format Painter" in the Clipboard group then select the range of cells that you want to format. It automatically formats them.
