Microsoft Excel – copying conditional formatting to other cells

If you have created conditional formatting in one cell, you can copy that formatting to other cells using the Format Painter.

Click in the cell containing the conditional formatting, then on the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Format Painter. If you want to copy the formatting to more than one cell, double-click Format Painter. Click in the cell or cells to which you want to copy the conditional formatting or drag across a range of cells.

If you have double-clicked the Format Painter, click on it again, or press Esc when you have finished copying the formatting.
