    Thanks to Graham for starting this conversation. If you would also like Excel to maintain named range references and structured table references in the “applies to” field for Conditional Formatting rules, please add your comments and vote this one up. We will prioritize accordingly.

    Thanks,
    Steve (MS Excel)

    Maybe the problem is that NAMED RANGES don't exist..... everybody thinks ranges are being named, but actually names are asigned to formulas, where in the end a range is also a formula. Therefore I think for Microsoft to apply conditional formatting to a NAME (which is a formula not a named range) might be a bit more dificult.... the only place where I've seen that Microsoft managed to assign such formulas (determining that there implicited related to a range) is on List validation

    Where I think could be more easy, could be on applying format condiitonal to ListObject (Tables) which already have structure...

    I think that it should go beyond names. Microsoft makes all new tools rely on table (ListObject), therefore Conditional Format should accept these "structured ranges"

    An improvement on the user interface is also needed... but I don't know how much they'll take to apply it. For instance, I'm a native spanish, and use Excel in spanish... Many years ago, I wrote a comment regarding huge errors on translation... and,,, wait, wait... till Excel v2016 where miracoulsy included the corrections I made, although they were actually facts, and shouldn't take any discussion to apply

    Good suggestion Frederic – thanks for taking the time to post it. We’ll take a look at the F4 loop and including other functionality like this as soon as we can. We’ll be spending more time on the things with more votes – so folks that really want to see this should keep voting it up.

    Best,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I think I’ve seen some related requests, I’ll look at merging them to make sure the votes properly reflect the ask. We’ll prioritize this into the execution pipe appropriately based on the number of votes.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the post Charles, and for the in person conversation at the latest MVP conference. We definitely understand the ask and will keep our eye on it – it looks like it’s moving up the vote charts pretty quickly. As always, keep upvoting the things you are about most.

    Great suggestion – thanks again for taking the time to put it on this site and for the thoughtful followup comments. This is pretty related to some other work we’ve got going and already has a fair number of votes, so we’ll work on getting plans in place now and hope to get started on this soon.

    Thanks,
    John [MS XL]

    Have you noticed that COUNTBLANK and ISBLANK react different with cells containing ="" ?

    Wow.

    Thank you to all those participated in our survey. What an amazing number of responses, many of them with very deep content. We’re processing the over ten thousand responses(!), and already appreciate the time so many of you took to answer with passion and experience.

    Please know this survey is used to help influence various topics – both on Python as well as other related topics that the comments started to bleed into. Given the passion, I want to be clear this remains an area of exploration for us, without any specific timeline.

    We’ll provide updates as we progress on this feature request.

    Thanks!

    PowerBI has incorporated it, but still only on Advance Editor, not on formula bar.
    The problem is that Excel is not monthly updated... hope they release an update soon!
