```Sure.
Select B:G
Condition 1: Formula is  =Len(\$A1)=0  (no format)
Condition 2: Formula is =MOD(\$A1,2)=0  (yellow format)
Condition 3: FOrmula is : =MOD(\$A1,2)=1  (grey format)

```1. Select columns B though G.
2. Format > Conditional Formatting
3. Formula Is:
=MOD(\$A1,2)=0
4. Press the "Format" button
5. Select the "Pattern" tab and select yellow - press OK
7. Formula Is:
=MOD(\$A1,2)=1
8. Repeat step 4 and 5 - select Grey.

```To all the excel gods

Thanks for the help, it almost works perfectly.  The only problem is
it makes the cells yellow if column A is blank.  It should return n
format.  More suggestions appreciated.

All the best

```Change =MOD(\$A1,2)=0 to:

=AND(MOD(\$A1,2)=0,\$A1<>"")

and =MOD(\$A1,2)=1 to:

=AND(MOD(\$A1,2)=1,\$A1<>"")

```Keep on adding those conditions:

=AND(MOD(\$A1,2)=0,\$A1<>"",\$J1<>"")

and the same for the second one.
