A1 contains a value, B1 has conditional formatting that shades it amber if A1 is greater than 5 and red A1 is greater than 10. I can duplicate this in B2 by format painting so that it relates to value in B1 and can carry on doing this one row at time.
I have about 3000 rows to apply this to. If I use copy and paste or if I use format painter for a block of cells in column B the result always gives me a range in which the formula is anchored to the cell in column A from the point of copying (despite the original not being identified with the $ sign) and the range to which it applies is given as the whole range I just copied to rather than that specific row.
Is there any way I can speedily replicate the formula in B1 across a range of rows so that for example B1000 would be exactly the same as B1 except in the row reference?
