Just what I wanted. Works great. Thanks.

"To make it work, type : =MOD(ROW():2)0

instead of :=MOD(ROW(),2)0

ie repalce the comma by "":"""

Works great for me.

I need to color every other VISIBLE row. Does anyone know how to do this?

I am trying to put this into the middle of a spread sheet. I want it to immediatly skip 3 rows then color 1 and skip 3 more and then color 1. Can anyone help with this one? Thank you.

To color sequences of 3 rows change the formula to: =MOD(ROW(),6)<3

"Tip works for me. However, I would like three rows colored and then three not and then three colored, etc.

Can you help."

it does work, look at the screen shot

The tip given doesn't work.

"the tip given does not work, or am I missing something. I type exactly the suggested tips and got the dialogue box ""not enough arguments"".
