Conditional Formatting to Clean Your Spreadsheet – Excel Tips

Nick Green of shows you how he uses conditional formatting to create a clean looking worksheet for his users.

What He Does

Nick uses toggle buttons to select different features on his graphs.  As the toggle buttons are selected, text that is no longer relevant seems to disappear from the spreadsheet.  Nich uses Conditional formatting so that as the toggle is selected, the text color is changed to white.  Tis causes it to blend with the background.

This is a good tip to create a clean environment for your end-user.
