Google Sheets conditional formatting based on cell above it

Web Applications Asked on December 6, 2021

I have a column of blank cells. If I type something into a cell, I want the cell immediately below that one to turn red. Any ideas for conditional formatting help?

follow this steps

select cell b1

set conditional Format, say for Column B

apply to Range: B2:B (>it will later correct to B2:B999 or max rows)

Format Rules

Custom Formula: =not(isblank(b1)) >>fill RED


if for some reason, like not selecting B1 at the beginning the formula (upon inspection) is different, pls correct to ...B1...

Try this custom formula: =not(isblank(offset(A1,-1,0)))

The only problem that I can see is that A1 is automatically highlighted, regardless of any value in any other cell
