Hello,
I'm using Excel 2010 (not sure whether or not that matters)

I'm not very familiar with conditional formatting, so I need help with something: I would like to change the color of the font of an ENTIRE row based on the value of one cell. Example: I would like the font of the row 22 to be blue if "M22" is blank; if "M22" has a date in it, then I want the font to be black (I'm okay with the background color changing instead, if that's easier). How do I apply the formatting on the other entire row? (or can I?)

Lets say you want to apply to whole sheet this

then
1. Select cell A1
2. Select Al Rows
3. Go to Conditional Format
4. Enter formula
=isNumber($M1)
5. Apply the format that you want
