# Add Red X In Cell Based On IF Function

Dec 10, 2009
I have a numerical value of in cell B3. A user will type a value into cell C3. If the user enters a value other than the value in B3, I would like a space and a red X to appear just after the value they enter, in red. (The value is black; the X is red.)

Example: 100 X

I am trying to return a TRUE or FALSE based on a date in a cell.

for example:

if cell A1 = 07/11/2009

I want A2 to show TRUE or FALSE if A1 is 14 days or more behind todays date.

I have tried stuff like:

=IF(A1=TODAY()-14,"True","False")

but it just always says false. EDIT: I have just noticed that if I change the date in A1 to exactly 14 days behind todays, it returns TRUE. So, it does work. Do I need to add a GREATER THAN in there?

I'm trying to obtain a result based on the number of characters in a cell. If the cell content is blank or contains 9 digits then leave blank.

Any other result must provide the outcome of "incorrect number supplied".

I've tried the following formula but it doesn't work.

A brief rundown on what I am trying to create. My family and I have a NFL football game we do every year to see who can correctly guess the most winners over the course of the season and then the ultimate winner receives a prize at the end of the season. After years of doing this manually, I decided to try and put my Excel skills to use and create a more "automated" worksheet.

After some heavy research, I was able to successfully create a user defined VBA which would calculate a "win" every time a cell is highlighted (in my case the winning team's name). For example, I highlight New England Patriots and when the formula calculates each person receives 1 in their win column.

However, I have now reached a problem I failed to think of. The formula does not take into consideration the picks everyone is going to make. Not everyone is going to select the winning team, so the current formula I have is giving credit for every highlight. Is there a way to add an if statement to this? For example, if person A selected New England Patriots and it's highlighted then give 1, if not give 0?

I know it's usually hard to base a formula off a cell color.

For some reason, I cannot attach the spreadsheet I am currently using. For a brief overview, cell M1 contains the color which I would use to highlight the cells in the range A2:H17. This formula is in cells B21 - B27.

The VBA which I input was:

Function CountCcolor(range_data As range, criteria As range) As Long Dim datax As range Dim xcolor As Longxcolor = criteria.Interior.ColorIndexFor Each datax In range_data If datax.Interior.ColorIndex = xcolor Then CountCcolor = CountCcolor + 1 End IfNext dataxEnd Function

Where the picks which are made should be logged. Whether each person gets a separate color and the VBA is based on that, or like I alluded to above if there is an X here and it's highlighted or something.

I am working on creating a simple Excel Database of an Engineering Tool Room Inventory for work. However I can not seem to get one particular 'NESTED IF Function' to do what I want it to do. (In advance warning, I may be going down the wrong route and might have used the wrong Formula in Excel but from my understanding the 'IF' function seemed the most plausible.

Issue: All I would like to do is for a NESTED IF Function to be able to say this:

1. When a user inputs data into one column, for example 'Column A', with the following data: 4" Square

2. Then the neighbouring column, for example 'Column B', would have a NESTED IF Function.

3. Which would output a logical response, "A, B, C, D, E, F etc...", depending on what is written in Column A.

If 'Column A' - 4" Square, Then 'Column B' - A

If 'Column A' - 5" Square, Then 'Column B' - B

& So on...

But the NESTED IF Function should only put a logical response if there is certain values within the cell, for example:

User types a value into 'Column A' which contain - 4 & S, Then 'Column B' - A

User types a value into 'Column B' which contain - 5 & S, Then 'Column B' - B

& So on...

Currently to do the above function, I have utilised the following Excel NESTED IF Function:

[Code] .....

& The following happens:

1. User inputs data into 'Column A'

2. The NESTED IF Function then provides an automatic response.

3. However it relies on the data being inputted without the ' " (Quotation Symbol)'

4. & With me defining the exact phrase that should be typed into the cell, for example, "4" Square"

Other: I have attached an example worksheet of the NESTED IF Function in practice, with two tables. One showing what is happening with the code above and one table showing what I would like to happen but with no function.

2) i want to fill the empty value in relevant cell at the time of execution of function i.e.

for example cell1 cell2 cell3 cell4 cell5

value value blank cell blank cell result(coming based on my condition but the empty cells or not filling)

how to fill the empty cell

I'm looking to create a macro that will take data from an input sheet, and paste it into a cell in another worksheet, based on criteria specified in sheet1.

Specifically in the attached example, the macro would copy the data in cells C8:C10 of sheet 1, then paste them into sheet 2 based on the data specified in cell B3 i.e. it would paste them into the column headed Mar-09. I intend to make this cell a drop down, so that the user can then select the next reporting month and run the macro again to paste the data into the Apr-09 column.

I have created a List in excel of various tasks. (See attached example.) Each row contains one cell with a function which equals the cell above it and to the right. So the function for cell C3 would be D2. The only importance is that the cell mirrored is always the cell one above and to the right. However, now I would like to be able to rearrange this List, but the “one up and to the right” function will now be all over the place.

Is someone aware of a function which will target a relative location instead of an exact cell?

I have been looking around have this much code from this site, modified. What I am trying to do is calculate numbers by a position with cells D through K having numeric values. I have 'hardcoded' the cells (D2, E2, etc in the code below), but in reality I only want the current row (so if the formula is on the 2nd row, I want D2, if it is on the 3rd row, I want D3).

My problem is obviously the formula isn't working because I am not correctly tying back to the spreadsheet (Positioncalc.xls). When I put the formula in the spreadsheet it works, but in my script I get 0 everytime.

My Script:

Function Position(rCell As Range, Optional RightPosition As Boolean)

Dim vResult

Select Case rCell.Text

Case "QB"

vResult = (2*D2) + (2*E2) + (2*F2) + (4*G2) + (2*H2) + (1*I2) + (4*J2) + (3*K2)

Case Else

vResult = "Invalid Position"

End Select

If RightPosition = True Then

Position = vResult

Else

Position = "Position not valid"

End If

End Function

So, when I put =Position(A2,True) I expect to see the formula results of those cells calculated based on the position (QB, HB, etc with their unique formulas).

My next challenge after this is to highlight certain cells based on the Position. So if A2 = QB, I want cell D2 boldface and Red, etc. I have seen some scripts on colors and such here, so I might be able to figure it out.

The following is my existing formula (I admit it is probably very far from what it should be) but I'm looking a way to base the conditional part of a function based on the text within a cell. =IF(E4=OR("WordA","WordB"),(I4),(-1*I4))

There are four words that I use to classify the column "E" for sake of simplicity I will name them as "WordA" "WordB" "WordC" and "WordD". Those words serve as the identifier that I am trying to test. I.E. if "WordA" or "WordB" are present in column E, I want the end result (listed in column I) to be a positive number. If "WordC" or "WordD" are present in column E, I want the end result listed in column I to be a negative number. Currently I have a formula in column I, which is: =((H3-G3)/G3).

Both Column H and G have numerical values. Essentially the whole goal of my process is that if WordA or WordB show up in E, then I want my formula in I to remain "as-is". If however, WordC or WordD are present, I want the end result or formula in column I to be negative.

I am not tied down or restricted to using a particular formula, but just don't know how to set it up either way. Additionally, I plan to copy the formula down in terms of numbers... i.e. I5,I6,I7, etc. so when submitting any advice or if supplying a formula to paste.

I'm working on a spreadsheet that I need to return a value to "Unit Price" field in worksheet "Master Inventory" based on matching the "Product" field and the "Construction" field from the "Unit Pricing" worksheet.

In essence, I would like the "Unit Price" field to match the "Product" field from the "Master Inventory" sheet to the "New Product Description" field on the "Unit Pricing" sheet, then match the "Construction" field on the "Master Inventory" sheet to the column headers on the "Unit Pricing" sheet and return the value that corresponds to both criteria.

Ex: On the "Master Inventory" sheet, I would like the "Unit Price" field to match the "Product" (Book Browser) to the "New Product Description" (Book Browser) on the "Unit Pricing" sheet and then return the value where the "Construction" (Laminate) matches the column header (Laminate) on the "Unit Pricing" sheet which would return the value of "$240.00".

I've tried using a vlookup function, vlookup/match function, index/match function and an index/match/match function. I've attached a sample workbook.

I need help on using the If function. Basically I am trying to calculate the cost of shipments. For example, cost of sending 1 box is 150 (eg cell A3), 2 boxes is 280 (cell A4), 3 boxes is 400 (A5), 4 boxes is 500, etc upto to 10 boxes (cell A12).

What I am looking for is cell A1 to provide me the cost based on the manually entered value of cell A2, i.e. if I enter a number between 1 to 10 in cell A2, then A1 should return a number from A3 to A12, e.g. enter 3 in A2 then A1 should return 400.

Is there such a formula or do I have to enter manually the amounts into an If function?

copying data from one sheet to another if it meets a certain criteria. I have a long aged debtors report that has several different cost centres and I want to split it out on to separate tabs for each centre. I want a function or marco that will go to row 1 and check if it equals the cost centre name on the other tab in a cell and then copy it and paste it in that tab, if not then it moves down to the next and the next until it gets one that does equal it and then copies it again.

I would like to create a UDF similar to the SUMIF function but the UDF would be dynamic in that it would sum based on a dynamic range that would change based on the row the user is in.

background: I have a very large input template for 12-18 months for multiple cost categories. I would like to have the UDF in a specific cell above each category that would show the user what the sum of the range in the current row they are inputing data. Each row represents a specific project/task (along with 12-15 descriptive columns) that makes the freeze pane option unusable.

I also have a sheet for each individual salesperson. I need to find a Macro or a Formula that I can use to give me the average of the numbers if "A5" = the salesperson in Sheet 3 then avarage the numbers from "E5" to "I5" and I want the results to show up in cell "D35".

Supposing you would like to find the median of numbers in column D, but only for rows that have the word "Jones" in column A? Is there a way to do this? Obviously I know I could do a sort and simply specify the range myself, but we're dealing with nearly 2000 rows and a LOT of different values in column A

It occurs to me that it would be even better if I could ask excel, in effect, to identify every separate text string in column a and then find the median of the corresponding numbers in column D. In other words I wouldn't have to type any strings from column A at all.

As you can see in the attached excel doc, I have calculated a column for "Number of Claims Per week" and also "Dollar amount Per claim". This was done using VLOOKUP and distributions. That is not the issue.

The issue I am having is creating the "TOTAL" for the week. So for example, if week one generates 4 claims, I need to be able to add up claim amount #1-#4.

It seems as though this would be a basic function, but I can seem to find a way to add up a certain number of cells, based on a variable generated from a random number.

If you take a look a my excel sheet, I am trying to solve for the "Claim Total" column on the far right. This column should be the sum of (Number of claims * The individual amount per claim). Note that if there is 4 claims in that week, I would have to add up claim 1-4 to get that weeks total.

Ok, so i'm trying to set up a function that will generate a price based on three fields:

Lamination:YES or NO

Duplex: YES or NO

Stock: Around 14 different stock options.

I had it working using a nested IF but I ran out of the 7.

I then tried using CONCATENATE using "&" to seperate but excel said the formula was too long.

If the percent in a cell is more than 10% less than another cell I would like it to turn red. I would like the cell to turn yellow if the percent in that cell is within 10% below the percent in another cell, or if the percent is greater than that of another cell I would like the cell to turn green. How do I do this?

To clarify; If cell a1 is 20% and Cell a2 is 21%, I would like the color in cell a1 to turn yellow since it is less than 10% below cell a2. OR if cell a1 is 25% I would like it to turn green since it is greater than cell a2. OR if cell a1 is 10% I would like it to turn red since it is more than 10% below cell a2.

I've looked at conditional formatting and it does not seem to apply, this seems like it would need an if function combined with conditional formatting.

in the lookup function listed below, it only produces a result for the first exact macth. well, what if the data i am searching on could result in multiple results?

i would like advise on how to modify this formula to bring back the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc instance of a match in the lookup array.

the original formula , i found on this site, allows you to combine multiple cells to create a unique reference, and then search in another table containing columns of those combined cells, and results in the intersection of a row and column and that is the data you want returned ....

kind of like a hlookup, but you can use one or more cells to create the unique lookup, and bring back whatever column you want (where as a hlookup is limited to searching the left most column and bring back a column to the left)

here is the formula:

{=INDEX(data to retrieve,MATCH(cell1&cell2,table to find cell1 in&table to find cell2 in,0))}

"data to retrieve" is an array of one column containing the data you want to retrieve

"cell1&cell2" is a combination of cells to make the unique lookup (this could just be one cell if you wanted)

"table to find cell1 in&table to find cell2 in" is a table array to look in to find the look up value
