Conditional formatting excel

Hi

Can someone please advise the easiest way to colour rows which have a specific name in a column in excel. I have tried using conditional formatting but it only colours the cells not the full rows.

just use the Format Painter and paint it across the whole rows

Hi,

or you could simply use
=$G1="Word"

Open in new window

1 is for the first row applied to
and apply to the whole row
for example =$1:$25
