# Set A Conditional Formatting Rule That Makes A Cell Red?

Jan 9, 2014

I want to set a conditional formatting rule that makes a cell red or green depending on if the value in the cell is larger or smaller than the value in another cell +2% or -3%. If neither of these conditions are met no formatting should be applied..

a) In the cell (R104) where the condition is set I have the following formula:
=if(BP104=0;"";BQ104/BP104) (the values in BP104 and BQ104 is retrieved from a database)

b) The conditions I've set in R104 are the following

1) =isblank(\$R\$104) (condition: "nothing")

2) =\$R\$104<\$R\$106-0,02 (condition: "red")

3) =\$R\$104>\$R\$106+0,03 (condition: "green")

c) In cell R106 the value there is a value of 90%

The conditions seem to work fine when the value in R104 is higher or lower than the conditions set in 2 and 3 above but when the value is blank in R104 the cell goes green, which it shouldn't.

## Multiple Criteria Per Conditional Formatting Rule..

Sep 18, 2009

how to adapt the solution so it would work in multiple cells. Since I was told to start a new thread, here it is. I want to format a cell based on its contents, If it has one of three entries, it should be greyed. I then want to use the conditional format across the whole page, but the solution given in the other thread refers to a single cell, how can I do this without that reference?

## Check 10 Different Text Values And Return False For All Of Those In The Conditional Formatting Rule

Sep 13, 2007

Allows me to check like 10 different text values and return false for all of those in the conditional formatting rule. When those are not present, the conditional format is true thus applying the format.

I tried
=NOT(FIND("text1",\$A\$1,1))
It did not work because I believe this statement doesnt give the rule its TRUE value its looking for.

I am having trouble with this, to clarify I need the below...
Cell has conditional formatting checking for text1 text2 text3...text 10ish and if they are present nothing will happen and if they arent present then format the cell.

EDIT: to clarify, the code should look for either text1 or text2 or text3 so on...

## Formula For Conditional Rule To Make Row Change Colour Over Multiple Sheets

Jul 10, 2014

I want to change the colour of rows depending on the letter that is in a column. I want it to do it over all the sheets of the document. In the G column there will be letters like 'W' and 'L' that signify something and I want to make it clear by changing the row colour fill. I've tried a few formulas I found by googling but they didn't work. I should point out that the letters are connected, so if I put a 'W' on the second sheet it appears on the first sheet as well.

## Click On Cell Makes Calendar Pop Up

Dec 27, 2007

I have read through numerous posts, but cannot get one thing to work. I am using Excel 2003, and am trying to get a calendar to pop up, to select a date, and then return that date to Cell B2.

I was successful at making the calendar pop up by the following methods:
1. Added a button to the toolbar, and assigned the Calendar Macro to it.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.OnKey "+^{C}", "Module1.Macro2"
End Sub
However, my goal is to make the calendar appear when I click on cell B2.
I tried using the following code, but when I click on B2 nothing happens.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "\$B\$2" Then UserForm1.Show
End Sub
I also tried:

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Excel.Range, Cancel As Boolean)
With Worksheets(ActiveCell.Worksheet.Name)
If ActiveCell.Column = 2 Then
If ActiveCell.Row = 1 Then
UserForm1.Show
End If
End If
End With
End Sub

## MouseOver Cell That Makes Apear And Disappear An Image

Dec 15, 2009

I would like to do a routine in VBA on excel 2007 that makes the following:

2- When the pointer is removed from the cell the window that contains the picture closes;
It is very important that the picture that is shown be adressed by a relative path from the folder in which is the excel file.

The pictures can change; this is the reason that the picture should be addressed by a path.

## Combobox Dropdown Selection Makes Desired Value Appear In Cell

Mar 14, 2012

I have searched and have not been able to find an answer to this question so it might be a little unique possibly. I have an ActiveX combo box that I am trying to do something with. The text that I want to appear in the combo box is already there and I did this by creating a list and referencing it to the combo box. So the combo box has the following four items in its drop down:

Boat
Car
Plane
Walk

Now the part I cannot figure out is how to make a selected value appear in another cell based on what was selected in the combo box. For example, if boat is selected in the combo box, then I want the value 25 to appear in a cell. If Plane is selected in the combo box, I want the value of 100 to appear in a cell. For walk 5, and for car 22. I know this can easily be done with data validation and a validation drop down list but I do not want to use that but need to have a combo box do it instead. I just don't know if it cannot be done as a list or not and have experimented with INDEX but not having any luck there. I do not want to use any macros for this either. Basically I am wondering how I can make my combo box work just like data validation drop down menu bar with formatted values outputted into a cell.

## Conditional Formatting Only Top Line Of Cell

Feb 1, 2010

I have a worksheet with conditional formatting applied. My formula works to change the cell color, font color, and strike-through the font if a "yes" answer is indicated. It all works well EXCEPT that the font color and strike-through ONLY apply to the top line on my cell.

Each cell has a title line, and a few paragraphs in it, with separations between the title line and the paragraphs. I kind of like having the title line a different font, but when it's time to strikethrough I want ALL of the text struck through.
