It can be hard to get a lot of meaning out of numbers in a worksheet. But Excel provides a bunch of ways to quickly analyze your data using conditional formatting. For example, you can use a color scale to differentiate high, medium, and low temperature values.
Here’s how you can quickly apply this type of formatting:
- Start by selecting your data. The Quick Analysis button appears on the lower-right corner of the selection.
- Click the Quick Analysis button , or press Ctrl+Q.
- On the Formatting tab, move your mouse over the different options to see a Live Preview on your data, and then pick the formatting you like best.
- To remove any conditional formatting, click Clear Formatting in the Quick Analysis gallery.
- For additional formatting options and colors, select your data, and then click Home > Conditional Formatting.
