What is conditional formatting?
Conditional formatting is a feature commonly found in spreadsheet software, such as Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, and similar applications. It allows users to automatically apply formatting—such as font color, background color, font style, or borders—to cells in a table based on specific conditions or criteria.
The primary purpose of conditional formatting is to visually highlight or emphasize certain values or trends within the data, making it easier for users to interpret and analyze. Instead of manually formatting cells based on data analysis, users can set up rules or conditions, and ERPAG will apply formatting automatically according to those rules.
