Reporting issue - Persisting conditional format rule from deleted column


Level 1

I have a task report which colors each row based on a "Ship Date" column.

I have since duplicated the report and made edits, removing the "Ship Date" column altogether. The color-coding persists based on the "Ship Date" field, even when that column is not present in the report.

I've tried re-adding that field, but I can't seem to override the former rule. Any tips?

Interesting puzzle Dan,

Although the Ship Date drives the row coloring instructions, I suspect they "live" on a different column that still exists in your view, and expect that if you click each and examine the Advanced Format (looking for color rules) and/or inspect its textmode (looking for column.style rules) you'll find the column that drives it, and can then either remove the color rules, or (more succinctly) drop that column and re-add it (without rules).
