Highlight the minimum value in each row

Occasional Visitor
Hi. I'm a complete beginner to Excel and need some help please.
I'm doing a spreadsheet comparing prices from different companies for hundreds of products so I'll have about 10 columns and up to 1000 rows. I want the cheapest price in each row to be highlighted after I input the data.
Could somebody please help me do this? I'll be mainly using Excel android app.
Thank you in advance.

Dear Kim,


Do the following steps as below screenshot:

1- Highlight the entire first column then go to Home >> Styles >> Conditional Formatting >> Top/Bottom Rules >> Bottom 10 Items...

2- Make the items just 1 item.

3- Select the format that you want, then hit OK.

4- Do the same thing on each column.

  1. select the first cell in the first row, e.g. Cell A1
  2. Home > Conditional Formatting > New Rule > Use a formula to determine which cells to format
  3. type the following formula, where $C is the last column 
  4. click Format button and apply the format you want
  5. click OK button (format cell dialog box)
  6. click OK button(New Formatting Rule dialog box)
  7. Home > Conditional Formatting > Manage Rules
  8. You can see your rule, and which cells that it applies to
  9. You can change the value in Applies to to apply on all rows.

I am sorry, Kim.  I overlooked "be mainly using Excel android app".  I don't have Excel android app. With a search on web, I found this question too.  As of July 2017, conditional formatting is not yet ready in Excel Android App.

Can i ask you where someone who is novice in excel, to find such formulas and other useful tips?  Thank you for your response@Willy Lau
