excel-formula,excel-2007 , Excel conditional formatting based on cell content

## Question:

Tag: excel-formula,excel-2007

I am trying to write a conditional formatting formula for the rule "if the first cell of this row is NOT empty AND the current cell IS empty".

Basically I am trying to bring attention when a user has forgotten to enter a value in a cell.

The formula I came up with was:

``````="NOT(isblank(\$A1)) AND isblank(A1)"
``````

Please provide an explanation why my formula is wrong, not just the correct formula =)

The logical "AND" is not an operator in Excel, it is just another function. Excel doesn't know how to evaluate =FUNCA() AND FUNCB(). Instead, wrap the two functions inside the AND function:

``````=AND(NOT(ISBLANK(\$A8)), ISBLANK(M8))
``````
