I am trying to make a spreadsheet black out non-needed information for individuals that meet a certain criteria. Their criteria is in column A and I need it to void cells B10:15 through C10:15 and cells F10:15 through J10:15

To sum up: if cell A10 is less than or equal to X then color in black cells B10:15 through C10:15 and cells F10:15 through J10:15.

select cell to format then [Conditional Formatting] [New rule...] "Use a formula to determine which cells to format"

=$A$10<=X

where X is the value, then click [Format..] and choose the color to fill.

verify that there is no quotes, for example this will not work

="$A$10<X"
