Find cells that have conditional formats

If your worksheet has one or more cells with a conditional format (conditional format: A format, such as cell shading or font color, that Excel automatically applies to cells if a specified condition is true.), you can quickly locate them so that you can copy, change, or delete the conditional formats. You can use the Go To Special command to find only cells with a specific conditional format or find all cells with conditional formats.
