Excel/Conditional Formatting


I have used conditional formatting (CF) on a range of cells for shading / viewing purposes using this formula in CF: =MOD(ROW(),2)=0.

I need to another CF to the cells in each column that I want to only change the font color. I want the fill color to stay the same. Any suggestions?


You can use multiple conditional formulas on the same cells, I.E. one to establish a fill color and the other to establish a font color.
To create the second conditional format click on your toolbar/conditional formatting and create the new conditiona format just like you created the last one.  It will not delete the previously created condition.

Hope this helps
