You analyze data in your spreadsheet to answer such questions as:

  • What have we spent more than $500 dollars on this month?

  • Who are the highest scoring players on the team?

Conditional formatting helps to answer these questions by making it easy to highlight interesting cells or ranges of cells, emphasize unusual values, and visualize data by using data bars, color scales, and icon sets.
