Auto Format Fill Colour Background On Certain Cells

Apr 2, 2007

I have been working on a spreadsheet but I use autoformat for.

For example if the date in the cell matches today's date then it turns the text read and makes it bold.

I was wondering if there was a way to format several cells in a row if a certain criteria was met.

for example

A B C
1 Item Cost Quantity
2 Car 11,520 2
3 Bike 7,500 1
4 Tyres 50 4

Now for example if I set a condition whereas the quatity is greater than 3 then it would highlight the whole row.

So in the example above I would like to to highlight row 4 and Fill colour cells A4,B4 & C4 with a yellow background and Red Text and make the texted bold.

VBA To Change Background Colour In Free Form Depending On Text In Cells?

Apr 3, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with several freeforms. I would like them to change backgroundcolour, if the content in a cell is equal to another cell.

Basically I would like my shape "Freeform1" to change backgroundcolour to RGB (0, 180, 0) if Sheet1.Range ("A1") = Sheet2.Range("D3").

If it's not the same content in both cells, I would like the freeform to remain unchanged, that's RGB (79, 129, 189).

This should happend automaticly, so I don't have to click the shape to make it happen.

Auto Fill Custom Format Numbers

Oct 15, 2009

I have the following list of numbers

0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0100
0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0101
0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0102

and I need to continue the list to

0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0326

I tried dragging by the grip in the bottom right hand corner but it changes the first didit only. I tried to put it the numbers in the format

100
101
102

and using a custom format number to put in the extra zeros. This worked fine until I used a countif (or it may of been a lookup) statement in my code to look for 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0100 and it can't find it as the number is 100. Is there away around this that will save me typing in an awful lot of zeros.

Changing Fill Colour Of 2 Other Cells Based On Another Cell Outcome

May 29, 2014

I need to fill 2 other cells with varying colours dependant on what is chosen within another cell.

I have a drop-down list in cell A2 to select either ON SITE, ACTIVE or CANCEL.

What I need then basically is...
if A2 equals 'ON SITE' then fill other two cells (A3 and B1) GREEN
if A2 equals 'ACTIVE' then fill other two cells (A3 and B1) YELLOW
if A2 equals 'CANCEL' then fill other two cells (A3 and B1) RED

Changing Fill Colour Of Cells Based On Other Cell Inputs

Jun 20, 2014

I have a calendar set up with dates going along P6:CU6. Column C9:C27 has various status' for the job such as "Complete" or "In Progress" etc. Next to that in rows D and E I have start and end dates for the job. What I am trying to do is change the fill colour of the empty cells that are in line with each job, so that between the correct dates they are the corresponding colour to the status. So a complete job on row 9 that started on 26/05/14 and finished on 28/05/14 would have three green cells along Q9, R9, and S9.

I have tried an IF/AND/OR statement which looks like this:

=IF(AND(Q6>=D9,Q6<=E9),OR(IF(C9="Planned","P",""),IF(C9="In Progress","IP",""),IF(C9="Late","L",""),IF(C9="Complete","C","")),"")

I am getting a #VALUE! data type error, I have tried reformatting the cells to various date formats but no luck so far. This could be because my dates are set up as =P6+1 etc. but I am not sure. The error only occurs when the cell falls within the dates, otherwise it remains blank.

I intend to hide the value in the cell and use conditional formatting to change the cell colour based on the hidden input.

Once this is working I also need to take weekends into account, column G has any 2 value combination of Y and N to say whether the employee is working Saturday, Sunday or both. Row 7 has a "1" value underneath every Saturday and a "2" underneath every Sunday. I can imagine how this would work but combining it with the above formula could be complicated.

Background Colour Change Only Certain Columns In A Row Using VBA

Apr 1, 2013

I want to change the back ground colour of each row until G column when there is a text in the first cell. I have attached the excel that I want the background colour to be. Like suppose, F1 is the details of family 1, F2 is for family 2. I want each family to be coloured. The rows are not fixed for each family. If F1 details are coloured green, Fr is orange, F3 is green and F4 is orange again. And the number F1, F2, F3, F4 and so on are not ordered in ascending. They can be random. But I want the colour coding to be the same as what I have shown in the excel. I have so many rows like that. How do I do that using excel. I have tried conditional formatting. But it doesn't work.

Adding Colour Background And Number

Jul 28, 2014

In the IAF tab, last one on sheet, I want to highlight a cell if on the Day tabs there is anything in column E, this will be text e.g. LAD, LE, E, AD, LC or NS, and in the same cell show the number that appears in column J of the day tabs, the excel sheet I'm working is to large to upload, if I delete some of the tabs all of the formulas go out of kilter. If Joe Blogs was at work on Day 1, the corresponding cell in the IAF tab should be yellow, if the supervisor monitored Joe's work on Day 1 the same IAF tab cell should remain yellow and show the number that is placed in column J on Day 1 for Joe Blogs.

I have managed to upload an amended copy of the file : Job PSS MASTER - v3 6 AMENDED.xlsx‎

Set Background Colour Depending On Variants

Dec 17, 2007

I need a macro that will change the background colour of a cell depending on whether it equals a certain variant. Let me explain.

Cells D8 to N8 will either equal 1, 2, 3 or 4. Depending on the value of the cells on row 8 (D8:N8) I need the above cells on row 4 (D4:N4) to have a different background colour.

If the cell on row 8 is 1, the cell on row 4 must have a green background.
If the cell on row 8 is 2, the cell on row 4 must have a yellow background.
If the cell on row 8 is 3, the cell on row 4 must have a red background.
If the cell on row 8 is 4, the cell on row 4 must have a blue background.

Therefore, if D8 = 3, D4 will have a red background. If F8 = 2, F4 will have a yellow background. And so on.

I need a macro that when ran changes the background colour of the cell range D4:N4 depeding on the value of the cell 4 rows beneath (D8:N8).

Conditional Formatting And Change Its Background Colour

Jun 30, 2009

I'm trying to set a conditional formatting to do the following:

If A1 is greater than 1, A2 will change its background colour to green. So the format needs to be in A2.

Basically in A1 is a page number that we have reconciled our bank statement to (labelled as "64" or "65" and so on), A2 has the end of statement amount.

Every month end we do a bank rec, the green cell is a marker to show what point we reconciled up to previous month.

VBA Conditional Programming - Background Colour When Criteria Not Met

Sep 17, 2009

I have some code below which looks at values added between a set range of cells. This works OK.

My problem is when i have to change the cell as it removes the background colour already set to certain columns ie Columns I, J, P, Q, W, X, AD, AE (these are coloured a light green).

The other cells in the range have no colour and so the code below works with no problem.

Errors With Changing Cell Background Colour?

Mar 18, 2013

I'm using this code below to change the background colour of a range of cells:

Code:
With .Range("I18:J18")
.Locked = False
.Pattern = xlSolid
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.Color = 9739376 'RGB(112,156,148)
.TintAndShade = 0
.PatternTintAndShade = 0
End With

I am receiving 'Object doesn't support this property or method' errors starting with the highlighted row. I'm unable to understand where I've erred. Note that range I18:J18 are merged.

Is this method an efficient way of simply changing a cell's background colour?

Click Button That Changes Cell Background Colour

Jan 12, 2007

The problem is that the cells which need to change are locked and have a object group ontop of them and are not all in one row or column..

The cells which need to change are A4,A5,A6,B6,C6,D6,E6,F6,G6,H2,H3,H4,H5,H6,I6,J6,K2,K3,K4,K5,K6.

It sort of a theme changer for my spreadsheet incase people want a change and can do all of it with one click of a button or maybe click on a cell with the colour on it and have that colour copy itself to the range.
