✔ Best Answer
Try this:

Conditional Formatting 2007

1) Select your cell or range of cells, IE all of row 15
2) On the ribbon click Conditional Formatting
3) Click on New Rules, it’s near the bottom of the dialog box.
4) Click Use Formula to determine which cells to format.
5) Enter the formula:


6) Click on the Format button
7) Select Font Tab
8) Click on the Button next to Strikthrough
9) Select the Fill Tab
10) Select a Gray color
11) Click OK
12) Click OK

Note the Dollar Sign - $ before the letter B in the cell
reference B1, it is required if you want to color the entire row.

And Excel questions are best asked in the Office Software forum.
