Range » Replace conditional formatting with static formatting in selectionThis tool replaces the conditional formatting in the selected cells with regular (static) formatting.
The formatting, that has been applied via conditional formatting rules (number, font, border and fill) is verified and then applied as regular (static) formatting.
The conditional formatting rules are then removed, but not the effects.
A practical example:
'We work a lot with conditional formatting, but our client wants us to "freeze" the format (which means no more use of conditional formatting...) in order to have a classical Excel format (mainly cell and font colors). The idea is to do the same thing as we can do with formulas or calculations "copy > paste as values" but for conditional formatting.'
This tool works in all Excel versions except for Excel 2007.
Data Bars and Icon Sets cannot be made static with this tool.
