Automatic Highlighting Of Neighbor Cell?

May 26, 2014

I have built a spreadsheet for my business which has an annoying feature I can't get rid of. When I click in a cell I want to enter data in the spreadsheet automatically highlights that cell and the neighbouring cell. I have to move away then back with the arrow keys to get back to the single cell I want to enter data in.

Automatic Highlighting And Expiration Of Cells?

Jun 12, 2014

I have a large document control register and it is updated daily and posted to a cloud for many people to access. It is very time consuming to constantly jump in and out and highlight and unhighlight as many things as there are and keeping track of which items that need to be unhighlighted. The thing I'm trying to figure out is if there is a formula for this...If i change any cell in a row I want the row to highlight itself entirely, but after 24 hours I want the highlight to expire. Is there a formula or function I can use to make this happen?

Feb 12, 2014

we have a Excel 2010 worksheet containing multiple tables.

On a separate worksheet we want to calculate with the first worksheet's values.

For example: Calc1: Sum ColumnB IN Table1 WHERE ColumnA = Orange

Reference Cell Based On Neighbor Cell

Feb 1, 2012

I have two work tabs, on one work tab named Task I have I have a list of Queues in B5 thru B10 in C5 thru C10 will be the start time spent in each queue and in D5 thru D10 will be the end time. I have another work tab, named Area, that will pull data from the Task work tab. What I want is for cell A1 in the Area tab to reference the B5 thru B10 cell that has the 6:00 AM start time next to it. So, if 6:00 AM is next to Queue 2 on the work tab "Task" then in Cell A1 on the "Area" tab will read/display "Queue 2". It's easy if I'm only referrencing one cell but when referrencing a range of cells B5:B10 I can't get it to work or select the Queue that has the 6:00 AM start time.

Highlighting Lowest Score Without Duplicates Highlighting And Counting Player Skins?

Feb 15, 2013

I found this spreadsheet on here and I have been trying to customize it to what I need. I am trying to have scores from skins match highlighted. I want only the minimum score to be highlighted but if there is another duplicate minimum score I don't want it to highlight anything. I also need to find a way to count the skins won by each player and have it off to the side.

For those not familiar with golf a Skin is a game where you try to get the lowest amount of strokes on a specific hole. Ex- 4 people play the hole one. P1 scores 4, P2 gets a 3, P3 and P4 get 6. The skin would go to P2 who has the lowest score on that hole.

Highlight lowest number in each column not highlighting if there are duplicates starting at L6 down to L11 and for each column till AC. And the same for the group just to the right on attached file.

On row 13 and 14 it tells me who won a skin. I want to tally up the total skins won by each player. so if Joe's names shows up twice on R14 I want it to tell me somewhere in the sheet Joe = 2

Cell Highlighting Box Has Disappeared?

Jan 3, 2013

Was working away on one of my spreadsheets and the black square that surrounds the cell you click on has vanished. i.e. if you click on cell A1, you normally get a black square surrounding the cell A1 to let you know that you are on it. That black square has disappeared.

It seems to affect any spread that I open but if I open a new spreadsheet it is there.

Highlighting The Row With The Selected Cell

Jan 25, 2007

I work with many sheets that have many data columns and have used a "greenbar" formula in conditional formating but would like to have a similar formula that highlights the current row. If possible, it would be nice if this new formula would not wipe out all other formatting as it moves.

I have seen Ivan's work at but it says that it wipes out other formatting.

The formula that I am currently using is =MOD(ROW(),3)=2
Is there a way of getting the current row number so that it could be
=ROW()=(current row number) ?

Highlighting A Cell, Based On Value / Blank.

Dec 29, 2008

I have a macro, and it mainly works, except the second part where it checks if the value is less than 7, and returns it to a white background.

The cell has a formula in it that returns "" based on another series of cells. I have considered changing that to a zero and formating, but for reasons that don't need explanation, i have chosen not to.

here is the macro. I need the second part to be activated if less than 7, as well as if the cell returns ""

Highlighting Or Flashing Highest Value Cell

Dec 30, 2012

I have % figures in the following cells, E20, G20, I20, K20, L20, F24, H24, J24, G28, I28, H32, F16, J16, G12, I12, H8.

These figures are the result of a formula of other cells, with constantly changing values, therefore the % figures are constantly changing as well.

What I would like to do is highlight the cell with highest % figure, ideally to 'flash', either cell colour or flashing text.

Highlighting The Active Cell After A Highlight

Nov 30, 2006

I have a cover sheet to a workbook that holds hyperlinks to its relevent page. Several of the hyperlinks link to the same page but different relevant cells. However it is not overly clear which cell is active when you click the hyperlink. What I would like is for the active cell to be highlighted on the page. EG hyperlink 1 links to page 1 cell A2 & hyperlink 2 links to page 1 cell B6 - I would like A2 to be highlighted when accessed by hyperlink 1 & B6 highlighted when accessed by hyperlink 2.

Highlighting Cells Depending On A Value In Another Cell

Aug 19, 2006

Have a spreadsheet shows 4000 warehouse locations (location of products). Each cell is a location in the warehouse (ba050, ca809, etc, actual warehouse locations, not grid ref); some products have more than one location, the locations are always next to each other. I import a text file into the workbook which tells me which product has more than one location (2, 10, 50, etc), thatís all Iím interested in ( multiple locations).

What Iíve done so far is to use vlookup to look at locations in file and allocated the number (the number of locations that product has) next (next column) to the cell that correspond to that location. What I need is a macro or formula that will look at the number and than highlight that many cells up or down the column, according to the number in the cell to the right (5 in cell, highlight 5 cells, 50 highlights 50). The warehouse runs up one aisle and then down the next and so on. So I need to be able to highlight cells up one column and then down the next and then up, then down and so on.

Multiple locations change on a daily bases, so need a quick way of updating 4000 locations.

New to excel donít know if this is possible or not. Learning as I go.
Need some assistance.

Sample below.
Only interested if a number is returned, ď******Ē can be ignored as will hide all columns expect ones with locations. So:

BA020 returned value of 4, so would like to highlight (any colour) BA020, BA029, BA040, BA049.

BB780 returned value of 2, so would like to highlight BB780, BB789.


BA090 2 BA100 **** BB749 **** BB739 ****

BA079 **** BA089 **** BB760 **** BB750 ****

BA070 **** BA080 **** BB769 **** BB759 ****

BA059 **** BA069 **** BB780 2 BB770 ****

BA050 **** BA060 4 BB789 **** BB779 ****

BA039 **** BA049 **** BB800 **** BB790 ****

BA030 4 BA040 **** BB809 **** BB799 ****

BA019 **** BA029 **** BB820 **** BB810 ****

BA010 **** BA020 4 BB829 **** BB819 ****

Highlighting Cell Color Depending On Text

Sep 15, 2014

See attached work book, it is an mot booking system that is all working fine except for one thing that I don't know how to change.

At the moment if you double click a cell in the test type column it enters the required data and turns the cell green highlighting the length of time and values this is all good but I am wanting the ones that start with n-side to turn yellow just so that we can see our own internal tests easily. It is control in the coding not formatting . Is there a way this can be done?

Highlighting Changes In Cell After Data Input Macro Run

Jun 27, 2013

I work for a marketing agency where technical savvy-ness is really limited. We analyze a lot of web page elements. I have a program that exports this data into a csv file and I've created a template for the user to add this sheet. This data is primarily text. I've created a button on another sheet that runs a macro that extracts data from the first sheet onto the second sheet in a particular format for ease of reading and editing it. That part is all good, this macro works and the button works. Now I'm trying to have it such when a person edits one of these cells, it highlights the changes on this newly sheet using VBA (the highlighting changes function just turned out to be too messy and buggy for what I want). I have this basic change macro that I have on the sheet currently:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Const WS_RANGE As String = "A1:H500"

On Error GoTo ws_exit:
Application.EnableEvents = False
If Not Intersect(Target, Me.Range(WS_RANGE)) Is Nothing Then
With Target
.Interior.ColorIndex = 30
End With
End If

Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

This works as well. However, my problem is that when I run the data button macro, of course excel reads this as a change to the cell and highlights it as a change before any actual changes are made. How can I have it so I run my data macro, and the cell changes are highlighted only *after* the user goes in to edit the text data plugged in from the data macro?

Highlighting Active Cell's Row, Along With Any Row That Shares Same Value In That Column

Sep 25, 2009

Is it possible to click on a cell in column C, and have the wishlist below happen:

That active cell's row is hightlighted.

Any cell in that column that has the same value as active cell is also highlighted.

Plus, any cell in another sheet that has that value it's row is highlighted too.


I click on C5 in Sheet 2 its value is 45000789 it row is highlighted, this value also appears in C3 in the same sheet, so it's row is highlighted as well. Plus, in sheet 1 in C10 this value appears and it's row is highlighted as well. When any of the values are clicked again the highlight is removed from all parties.

Excel 2007 :: Highlighting Row Of Table Of Active Cell

May 10, 2013

I am trying to create a VBA code that will automatically highlight the row of an Excel table (2007) of the active cell. So far I have this:

If Not Intersect(ActiveCell, Range("Table_Name")) Is Nothing Then
Range("A" & Target.Row & ":EJ" & Target.Row).Interior.Color = 10092543
End If

Where the columns A and EJ represent the size of the table. But I would like to automate the column choices so that if the table has columns added or removed, the code still works. Is there a way to just reference a row of a table?

Select An Item Of Data ( Or Update A Particular Cell ) Then I Loose The Highlighting For That Row

Jan 23, 2009

I have a big spreadsheet that has 30 columns. The data is downloaded from an SQL database from time to time. The row identifying data ( the record number/key ) is in the left most cell. I often have to move over 10 to 20 columns to view some other data in the same row. I can do this by selecting the preset Excel row number which higlights the whole row and then use the lower slider bar to go to the correct column to view the data.

However if I wish to select an item of data ( or update a particular cell ) then I loose the highlighting for that row and I can "loose" which row I am on. ( maybe I'm stupid but it does happen ) Can I use Conditional formatting to highlight a row whenever I alight on any data in that row and it sttays highlighted until I select another value on another row?

Automatic Time Stamp Cell Based On Adjacent Cell

Oct 19, 2007

I am looking to add a function to a current spreadsheet that writes the current date to a cell when another is updated. The sheets function is to have a user record when a particular action has been completed and then remind them after a given amount of time. The user is faced with an option to input a "1" to essentially "start the timer" and then the date that is automatically input by the code will be used to compare with the current date. I have tried the following on the Workbook_SheetChange sub

If ActiveCell.Column = 9 And ActiveCell.Value <> 1 Then
ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 2).Value = Date
End If

But cannot figure out how to eliminate user error. Let me explain. If a user enters a value (will only ever be a 1 to indicate "yes") into column 9 then the date appears in the correct place (two cells to the left) If however a user deletes a value then the date will update one cell too high!? I also thought of using a cell based if statement (if j7 = 1 then today() else "" but this only updates with todays value each time you open where I want the date to stay as the day the cell was updated. The date is going to be used as a way of working out when to change the original value of the cell in column 9 to "".

Automatic Cell Recognition

Sep 4, 2009

In the Yellow Cells, I am looking for a formula or Macro that will automatically recognise and give the correct Premises number. As an example, in the first block of Yellow cells, it should be MOR001&2; The second block should be MOR003 and so on...

One could copy and paste the Premises number for each premises, but with 100 entries or more, it becomes a tedious and time consuming task. An autonomous function to recognise the correct premises number would be much easier

In the end, this is to be used when drawing up a PIVOT so that one may easily pick up a premises number or numbers and their related charges
