#### Writing formula for excel worksheet

```Item	Rate1	Rate2	Rate3
A	3	4	6
B	8	5	23
C	56	5	78

Above is my excel sheet.
I want to write some formula so that in every row cell having minimum rate
should come bold. Like For Item A - Rate1(3)
for Item B - Rate2(5)
For Item C - Rate2 (5)
```

```There may be a neater way but this works. Somewhere in you sheet in a cell
type =min(A1:a4), I used L1 Change this to watever range you are trying to
evaluate.

Then select this range and click format  - conditional format - cell value -
is equal to
=(\$L\$1) and apply your bold font.

The lowest value in the range will then become bold.

Select each row and apply Conditional Formatting
cell value    - equal to - =min(1:1) for the first row and then bold
then the 2nd row
cell value    - equal to - =min(2:2) for the first row and then bold

```Select all the rows from row2 down (this ensures A2 is active)

Click Format > Conditional Formatting
Under Condition 1, set it as:
Formula is: =AND(ISNUMBER(A2),A2=MIN(2:2))
Click Format button > Font tab > Bold/red? > OK
Click OK at the main dialog

The initial step given earlier:
> > Select all the rows from row2 down (this ensures A2 is active)
means to select entire rows (select the row headers)

If you did the above step correctly, you'd find that the CF will work across
entire rows, ie across all cols. Give it another try.

Timesheet formula
I'm wondering if anyone can give me a hand with writing a formula to calculate hours on a timesheet? I need the formula to calculate the number of hours of ordinary time, where ordinary time is paid for the first 4 hours of work or until 12 noon (ie if I have worked 11am - 1 pm there would be only 1 hour of ordinary time, 7am-3pm is 4 hours etc). I am not using 24 hour clock or am/pm but hoping that the formula will recognise whether the number written is in the morning or afternoon depending on whether start time is bigger than finish time. -- kddd ------------------------------------...
