I have a spreadsheet that I have to print daily schedules from I have it conditional formatted so when I enter an X in the first cell of the row the row highlights. Through out that row there are X's in the cells of the daily sheet I must print from tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet. So I have two questions: Is there a formula that I can write so when I enter that X in the first cell it makes any other cell with an X in it print the corresponding bottom tabs daily schedule sheet. So looking at this I want the first X to say print sheet 3,8,12,15 from the tabs below. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 x x x x x tabs at bottom 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 Or this would be my other option: Conditional formatting. My other question is on this same spreadsheet, Is there a formula that I can write so that when I enter that same X in that first cell I have conditional formatting that will highlight the X's in that row a color of my choice. I am thinking some kind of IF / THEN statement.
