# Re: [libreoffice-users] Conditional formatting question

Hi :)
The dynamic methods are more scalable (or just extend a little) and easier
to replicate.  Also the original question looked like it required a less
static approach.  With the static approach you need to remember to do 2
actions and try to remember what the reason/rule was for the different
back-grounds.  Each approach has pros/cons.

Anyway, congrats on solving the problem in the way that suits your own
use-case the best :))
Regards from
Tom :)

OK, in stead of an dynamic setting I reverted to manual setting (makes the
sheet faster too).

I set autofilter on the column, selected all rows not empty, and set the
background color...
Simple and fast.

Why do something dynamic if the data is not that dynamic.

Andreas & Brian,

thanks, that works great!

Now I have another followup question:

I already had a formatting for 2 colums where I set the number of digits
behind the decimal based on the formula MOD(F2,0.01)=0.
This to make a Euro/dfl denomination look like 0.10 and 0.15, while the
real old values (e.g. 12.5 cents) display as 0.125

For those values which on have 2 digits after de decimal, the background
color doesn't display..
If I look at the conditions the first one is the one just added (Range
A2:AMJ3500; Formula ISNUMBER(\$H2). This is followed by a hugh list in the
style F4  — MOD(F4,0.01)=0
F20-F21 — MOD(F20,0.01)=0
Apparently the list breaks if rows are added... I changed the condition
to MOD(\$F2,0.01=0) for the range F2-F3500.

It seems that changing the number format conditionally overrides the set
background color.

Result:
If Fx has the value n.nnn it has de correct background but the
numberformat displayed is now n.nn
If Fx has the value n.nn the background is gone

Am I missing something here?
Is this expected behavior?

Thanks,
Rob.

I am looking on a way to set the background color of a full row if one
specific field in the row has a value. [Example: C3 = 3.] I looked at
conditional formatting but I don't see how to format the complete line
based on one value in the line.

By "having a value", do you mean the specific example value of 3, or do
you mean having value as distinct from not having a value (whatever that
means)?

o Select the relevant rows.
o Go to Format | Conditional Formatting... .
o For Condition 1, select "Formula is" from the drop-down menu.
o In the box, enter INDIRECT("\$C"&ROW())=3 - or perhaps
INDIRECT("\$C"&ROW())<>0 .
o For Cell Style, select your cell style with the appropriate
background colour (or click New Style... and create a style on the fly).
o OK.

I trust this helps.
