Hi all, thanks for looking.

Goal: add colour to every other column in large spreadsheet.

Background: I have a spreadsheet with 365 columns and would like to add 10% grey to every other column to help my eye stay in the correct column. I hope there is a more elegant way of doing it, rather than selecting each one and the selection 10% grey! I've made it through a few months this way, and would like to have a better way to approach it.

Here is an example:
