Is there a way of conditionally formatting a group of cells based on a condition in ONE of them?
I want three cells in a line to change to green when one of them is zero?

TerryM,

Select all the cells for which you want the same conditional formatting. Click on menu Format -> Conditional formatting..., then select "Formula is" in the first condition, then type (without the quotes): "$A$1=0" (replace $A$1 by the first cell of your selection). Finally, select the style.

Hope this help,
Stephane Quenson.

Thanks, Stephane.

Simple when you know. I posted this without being too hopeful of a solution.

I was mis-interpreting the meaning of 'Formula is'

Aren't these formulas hard to get just right: in my case I had to allow for a slightly non-zero rounding error.
