Hi - I am currently trying to apply conditional formatting to my entire worksheet to show the min and max of each row individually.  Is there a way to apply this to the entire worksheet while still keeping each row individually analyzed?  I'm hoping I don't have to apply over and over row by row.

 

Thanks!

Select the entire worksheet, or just the rows in use.

The active cell should be cell A1.

 

On the Home tab of the ribbon, select Conditional Formatting > New Rule...

Select 'Use a formula to determine which cells to format'.

Enter the formula =AND(A1<>"",A1=MIN(1:1))

Click Format...

Activate the Fill tab and select a highlight color.

You can also specify a font color and/or borders.

Click OK, then click OK again.

 

Repeat these steps, but with the formula =AND(A1<>"",A1=MAX(1:1)) and with a different color.

As you can see in F2 / G2, if there is more than one cell with the minimum (or maximum) value in a row, all of them will be highlighted.
