    Cond Format with formulas (2000)

    I have a formula in B1: =If(A1="","",A1)

    In B1 I enter Cond Formatting as Formula= =if(B1>4) ----------Turn cell (B1) pattern red

    This works correctly for any number enter manually in A1, but also returns true (turns B1 red) when
    A1 is blank.

    Why?

    A null string is considered greater than a number

    You could use a cond formatting formula like:
    =AND(B1>4,B1<>"")
