To Change The Color Of An Entire Row Based On The Value Of A Single Column
Aug 4, 2006
I am looking to change to color of an entire row based on the value of a single collumn in that row....Say I have an issue on a line and the "priority collumn is set to high" I would like that entire row to turn red....
I am looking to change to color of an entire row based on the value of a single column in that row....Say I have an issue on a line and the "priority column is set to high" I would like that entire row to turn red....
In Column D I already have a listbox on every line. If the user selects "waiting payment" then the whole row needs to be highlighted red. If the user selects "arrived" then the the whole row should be green. The dropdowns are already there, but I cant get the colors to change. I have heard that conditional formatting may allow me do do this, but I'm not sure how to go about doing it.
I'm trying to have a macro run to search a specific column (S) for a particular text value "y" and if true it will change the font to bold and the color to red for the entire row of the cell that contains the "y". the column is part of a data table that is constantly refreshed not sure if that makes a difference or not.
I have a spreadsheet with data in a1:p100 and i'm trying to find a macro that anytime the cell contents change in either column B or Column F it copies the entire row to another tab in the spreadsheet.
I'm Trying to change the value of a row when a determine condition happens, and I was thinking of doing it after the insert was made, but maybe it's easier before the insert (?) The thing is i've tried both, and i'm doing it wrong because it's not working
Code: With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Site Configuration List") .Range("A").EntireRow.Offset(1, 0).Insert ' Tried this .Range("A").EntireRow.Interior.Color = 49407
Obviously not at the same time, but no of those work. The call to the sub where the code above is implemented, is inside a loop, however, with each one of the things I've tried, when it gets to the line the program just stops. No error or anything.
I need to conduct keyword searches in excel and color the keywords a different color without changing the font color of the entire cell. now, i found some code from another thread that does this, but i cant seem to get it to work with more than 2 keywords. i need fine-tuning the provided code to do what i need it to do.
the VBA code i used was this:
I was playing around with the example, the Cat_Mouse.xlsm, and when i modified the 'myList' and 'myColor' arrays, it does not work.
For example, I modified the code to add the word bat:
When i run the macros, the word "Bat" does not become colored red. interestingly enough, when i substitute the word "bat" for the word "hat" in the "myLIST array, the word "hat" does change to the red font.
I am looking to use this code to address keywords in my excel file by coloring all key words red and i have more than 10 key words.
I'm looking to do some simple maths with ranges in Excel but I'd like a way to be able to input all these formulas automatically although I am pretty sure a single formula per column could do it all automatically. I've got to put the sums in AD to AF on the first line of each location, but the maths is for the entire location's range.
I have two columns. The first one (A) contains cells that have different Fill colors. The second column (B) contains text adjacent to the colored cells. I am trying to change the color of the text in the second column (B) to the corresponding color in the adjacent cell in the first column (A). I don't think conditional formating works well in this situation. I believe the solution would be some sort of macro.
1). For each cell that in the range that has a Red background delete the entire column I have attached a sample spreadsheet where I have tried to do this. It's not quite working. It does not seem to work when there are RED cells next to each other.
I know that I can do a simple thing like column("A:A"), but I'd rather have it in a loop as in the sample code, in case the columns change in the future.
2). The second task is to delete the rows in the spreadsheet where the first cell in the row is a blank.
I am trying to copy an entire row to another tab based on when a cell changes. The column where the change will come from in colum N. I am using this code based on what I have read on this board, but cannot seem to get it to work correctly.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim LC As Integer, iCol As Integer, Found As Range iCol = 14 'column containing K LC = Cells.Find(what:="*", SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns).Column If Target.Column = iCol Then Select Case Target.Value
In the end what I would like to do is everytime there is a change in column N, the macro copies the information from that row into the other tab. I would like the information to overwrite anything that is alraedy in that tab as well. So if someone accidentally putc in a C instead of a K, it will not keep that information in the wrong tab.
I have a cell that has a formula in it like PREM + PRDCMP + ACQ + DLR in a spreadsheet that looks like this:
PREM PRDCMP ACQ DLR VIP COMM TOTAL 2 1 3 4 6 5
PREM + PRDCMP + ACQ + DLR 2 1 3 4 10
where PREM + PRDCMP + ACQ are colored red and + DLR is colored blue. This formula is entered in that particular cell as a text string. I have a formula in the PREM column that says if the word PREM is located in the formula to the left (and it is), then put the value that is located right under the PREM column (2) in the blank cell next to the formula. So, in the above example, I have an IF statement that sees that PREM is in the formula to the left and so underneath the PREM column, next to the formula, it would place the number 2. Now, I need Excel to detect if any word in the formula text string is colored blue and if it is, to put a zero in that column. So, in the formula above, if + DLR is the only text that is blue, I want to have Excel add 2 + 1 + 3 only. I want to have Excel take any string out that might be colored blue, such as + DLR and return the value of zero for it. The purpose of the different colors in the formula is to distinguish which information is relevant and which information should be ignored. So, I'd like Excel to read the above formula and say put the PREM amount in the cell under PREM, put the PRDCMP amount in the cell underneath PRDCMP, put the ACQ amount in a cell under ACQ and put zero in the DLR column since it is colored blue. If any of them (PREM, PRDCMP, ACQ, DLR, VIP or COMM) are colored blue, I want Excel to put a zero in that column.
I have attached the relevant spreadsheet for which I need to alter the color of the columns based on Site number ( Sheet 1). % Mortality will be represented in the Y-Axis, and the Site numbers would be on the X-Axis. All columns (% Mortality) except one will be of the same color, and the one of a different color will indicate a specific site. As an example, site 86 is colored differently. The way I require the chart to look is shown on Sheet 1.
After reading through some great posts on Ozgrid, I managed to do this using conditional formatting (Sheet 2), but that sort of falls short because I am required to add a data table to the chart, and the parameter that is indicated by the column bars happens to appear twice in the data table.
I was wondering if this can be automated maybe using VBA, but with the possibility of simply matching the color of columns with the font color of respective entry in the data series.
and its works, but when I change the color via conditional formatting, the value is not update, I have to go to the cell, press F2 and hit enter to get the value updated, I mean, I need to do a kind of refresh to get the value of the conditinal format.
I'm trying to set up a spreadsheet to track 20 vehicles mileage, and when they are due for an oil change. I have the value of when they are next due in column D, and the actual mileage in column G. I want to have the row for each vehicle turn yellow when they are within 1,000 miles of needing an oil change, and red when they are due/overdue.
I have been trying to figure out how to change the color of a specific tab based on information being entered in cell "B9" for each sheet that the tabs represent. If there is information in cell B9 on "tab 1", I want only tab 1 to change a color. If there is no information entered in cell B9 of tab 2, then I want tab 2 to stay with its default color.
There are 34 tabs I want this to happen to, out of just more than 60 total tabs on the worksheet.
I'm trying to change the tab color based on a cell value. This I can do, but only using a Change Event with code in the Worksheet section. I would like it to update more instantly and without the need for a Change on the sheet to occur. So I was thinking a Worksheet_Activate event, or perhaps a Workbook_Activate event, but i can't get it to work.
For further info, if not confusing, the cell referenced in code below (on the Dan sheet) is filled using a user entered variable when the workbook is opened. Depending on this value, i would like the tabs to update their color accordingly and instantly, as well as the color updating if the cell B3 on the sheet is changed. Perhaps I need a Worksheet Activate & Deactivate and Workbook Activate and Deactivate?
Public sPeriod As Long Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) sPeriod = Worksheets("Dan").Cells(2, 4).Value If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Target.Address(False, False) = "B3" Then Select Case UCase(Target.Value) Case sPeriod - 1: ActiveSheet.Tab.Color = RGB(0, 0, 255) Case Else: ActiveSheet.Tab.Color = RGB(255, 0, 0) End Select End If End Sub
How do I change the color of a row, based on the users selection from a drop down box in that row? I have four driving types in my drop down , Towing - Town Driving - All highway - Mixed. I would like each driving type, if selected, to change the color of the entire Row of Data to a different color. I have been able to use conditional formating to change the drop down cell itself, but that is it.
When the sum of B7-D7 is less than cell (I7) I would like to change the shade of B7-D7 to orange to indicate that larger values need to be entered to equal the value of cell I7. And when the sum of these three cells does equal I7 their color should change to green. I recorded two macros to change the colors and I've run them to verify they work. But I've got something off in my simple macro below.
I have a large spring-selection table, which is populated with things like "4.88 x 635" and "5.26 x 584". There are 1520 fields in the table populated with any combination of the 432 springs available for selection. The spreadsheet takes my criteria, finds out which springs it's allowed to choose from, and populates the table. It could be 20 springs, could be 30. I'm trying to get the number down to 10. The table updates when I change the criteria.
What I'm after at this point is a macro which will color-code the table based on the cell contents, so that all the "4.88 x 635" have one color and all the "5.26 x 584" have another colour. Doesn't have to be any particular colour, just so long as it's a bit different to the cells around it. how the table reacts.
The biggest spring size is "6.93 x 1727", which could be converted to a color reference, perhaps by adding up all the digits, or taking out the non-digits and dividing by 123781, I don't know I'm thinking out loud. And then just assign the cell color to that number.
Where to start a macro like this. Obviously it would use ActiveCell.Interior.ColorIndex but I can't find anything like this on the web.
We have a assigned date, a due date and a date resolved. what I would like to do is any time the date resolved is past the due date change date resolved background to Red. I was playing around with conditioning formatting but can not seem to get this right....
