#### 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 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.

Hi. Using Excel 2007. I want to be able to force certain information into a cell. Example: Column B must contain either the text: SAI or Passport. If Column B says SAI, then column C must only (force it) allow for a 13-digit ID number (numeric). If for instance you enter only 12 digits instead of 13 digits into column C - it must not allow this and give you an error. However, IF Column B says "Passport", then Column C must default to an alphanumeric with no length limitation (some passport no's are 9 digits, others are 6 digits etc). I'm not sure if Excel ca...
