Default Shade a row containing Saturday or Sunday

I have self adjusting rows that may sometimes change the day to show Saturday or Sunday. The days however are results of a formula and the cells formatted, one as a date, the other as "dddd" for the appropriate day. How can I have any row on my sheet that contains Saturday or Sunday shade itself automatically? Conditional formatting does not recognize "containing text" and I believe it's because of the formula.

When applying conditional formatting (all cells that contain) did you choose Edit the Rule Description then Cell Value and from the dropdown choose Equal to and enter "Saturday" as it would appear then create a second rule the same way and enter "Sunday" (both without the quotes)

OK, I tried as you suggested but still does not highlight the cell. I want the entire row though if possible. I will settle for selected cells though.

The cell formula is: =IF(K48<=0,C48+1,C48)

The result is: Thursday, January 27, 2011

The cell is formatted as Long Date

You don't say which column your formula is in. Besides, you won't get any joy looking for text as your cells contain Excel-formatted dates.

Assume your formula is in column D, starting with row2. Highlight all the cells that you want to be affected (eg it might be from A2 to M50), then click on Conditional Formatting, choose New Rule, then Use a formula ... (bottom one in list). Then you can enter this formula:

=WEEKDAY($D2,2)>5

(NOTE the use of the $ symbol in front of the D, so that it anchors the formula to your date column. Excel will automatically adjust this for the rows in your range, but if your first row is not row 2 then you should change the $D2 as appropriate).

Click on the Format button, then the Fill tab and choose your background colour. Click OK twice to exit the dialogue, and you should see the effect you require.

Hope this helps.

Pete
