I have a worksheet set up where one column of data (we shall call it "A") is the result of several other columns' calculations (uses a formula referencing other cells). I have an entirely separate cell that also gets its data from other cells (we shall call this "B"). What I'm trying to do is make the shading of column "A" dependent upon data from column "B". For example, if column "B's" value is >24, I want column "A" to shade in red.
Im working on a large workbook with multiple worksheets. Each of these worksheets has a large amount of data relating to training records. In particular, the date that an employees certification is due to expire (eg: 01/02/2007 or 31/09/2009 etc)...(im also in Australia so my date formats may be different).
I need to color code these records with the below logic, eg:
If Cell Date is <Today() = Red Text or Cell If Cell Date is <18months from Today()+1 = Yellow Text or Cell If Cell Date is >18months from Today() = No change - leave white
I have basic VBA knowledge, but will be able to work my way through some of the code that is posted.
It's also key to note that there are multiple 'Blank' and 'Text' Cells in these worksheets. I only want to apply this code to a cell if it is populated with a date, is this possible ?? (eg: i only want to change the color of the dates listed, not the other cells with text and single numbers).
I have played around with the Conditional Formatting but i will need more than 3 conditions in the future. I've also attached a small screenshot of the data for your convenience.
I am trying to find some VBA that will allow protected cells to be updated when a user enters or selects data in other cells.
Cell 'A1' starts out blank. Cell 'B1' has a drop down to select specific items. Cell 'C1' is the date of the order and is a locked cell. Cell 'D1' is the date of completion and is a locked cell. The worksheet is protected to prevent direct changes to cells C1 and D1.
If a user enters any information in A1, then C1 displays the current date. If a user selects 'Complete' from the drop-down list in B1, then D1 displays the current date. Both of these actions are independant of one another. This format is the same for every cell in the 4 columns indicated above. I thought I was able to do this in another spreadsheet I created a year or so ago but I have not been able to figure out what I did and I do not have the spreadsheet to look at.
I have values in a number of cells. Next to them, if there was a value, regardless of what the value is, except blank or zero, i would like the cell to turn blue and if possible have a 1 in the cell.
I've used the conditional formatting, however, among the options, 'less than' is the closest to to getting the color right. The issue is that if the cell has nothing in it, it still colors the corresponding cell blue; because it is not less than the already blank cell. If it is blank, I don't want it to color the cell.
I currently use spreadsheets to report on backup processes.
I am trying to speed up this process and one thing that woudl help me is a function that will automatically fill the row with a colour depending on the choice in the dropdown box, so if you choose 'successful' from the dropdown list the row colour would fill to green and if you select 'failed', the row would change to red and a choice of 'completed/errors' would result in orange.
This process is currently done manually and often results in errors like a succesful result with a red filling.
Is there anyway to automate this process? i was trying to whip up a macro, but have been unsuccessful so far.
I have a spreadsheet that lists dates in row 6, columns V through BE. We use these dates to log attendance for kids, so under each date there may be one of many symbols, such as "x" if the student was there. I would like to create a list of the dates that meet one of two criteria: either blank or containing "WR". So, let's say column Z is blank and Y has "WR" in it. In column FB I would like a list of all of the dates that were blank or WR, so I would want the dates contained in row 6 for Y and Z. Is there a function that will 1) look for a blank or WR across a row, 2) find the associated date for that blank in row 6, and 3) write the in another column in the form of a list, each date separated by commas? Here is an example of my information. I would like for a function to automatically make the list in column FB for any dates that are blank or contain "WR".
I am trying to figure out how to run a macro for 1 particular workbook in an excel spreadsheet. I don't want it run on any of the other workbooks in that file, just the 1. I can't use conditional formatting because I need more than 3 values (if statements).
This is what one example of data in a cell and below is the color I'd like it to turn when I run the macro:
T: 6/1/07 A: 6/8/07
Anything that has a A: (which means an actual date it happened) I'd like the cell to turn blue. If there is an RT: (which means revised target) I'd like the cell to turn red which means it missed it's target date, and has been revised. If it has a TBD I'd like the cell to turn pink (or yellow or any color really). All other cells are just white. I don't know where to find the color codes in excel as well. Other samples of what cells look like are below.
I have a spreadsheet with cells containing different names. I want all of the cells containing the word Volitility to be colored one color, all of the cells with the word Momentum colored another color, and so on. I have more than three names so I cannot use conditional formatting. Attached is a workbook that has the uncolored cells in worksheet 1 and an example of what I want it to end up looking like in worksheet 2.
Is is possible to clear the contents of a cell range if a message box appears stating an error. I have tried the following code but the logic doesn't actually work and am struggling to achieve what I am trying to do.
My code so far is as follows:
If ActiveSheet.Range("F84") > 0 And ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("PES").Range("D24") = 0 Then _ MsgBox "Your Entitlement is currently 0", vbCritical, "Error" ActiveSheet.Range("K84:T84").ClearContents
The message box appears fine if the IF statement is true but if IF statement is false, the cell range of K84 to T84 on the current sheet is still cleared..
I would like to automatically color fill a series of rows based on like information from a single column. When the information in the column changes then the rows would either stop filling (this would be best) or fill with a different color until the information changes again.
Summary: series of alternating rows would either be filled or unfilled based on changes from the column information.
Hope this isn't too confusing. Below is an example except I would want the cells filled, not the text or numbers to change. The highlight is changing based on the changing of the numbers.
I am working on a manpower spreadsheet and need for one spreadsheet to extract data from another and automatically update if it is changed and I am struggling below is an example of what is on spreadsheet 1:
and the information from spreadsheet 1 is copied to spreadsheet 2, however if amendments are made to spreadsheet 1 they are automatically updated on spreadsheet 2:
I thought this was a pretty simple formula but I am having difficulty creating it. I am attaching a little test spreadsheet. Sheet 1 is where the data will be entered. The Reimbursed column has a drop down choice of yes or no. The next 2 columns are the cost of registration and the cost of accommodations. On sheet 2 is where I would like the formulas. So in cell A4 I would like a formula that says if B3 on sheet 1 is Yes populate this cell with the contents of Cell C3 only, B4 of sheet 2 would then be B3 if A3 on sheet 3 is Yes and so on with the Not reinbursed if sheet 1 the Reimbursed column is no.
One of the action's on a large group of the controls is the same but except for one number
here is an example
If TextBox107.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell. Offset(0, 53).Font.ColorIndex = 3 If TextBox108.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 54).Font.ColorIndex = 3 If TextBox109.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 55).Font.ColorIndex = 3
This makes a cell that correlates to the textbox red if the text in the textbox is red.
Now, I loads of these textboxes that all need to run the same code with just the Offset value one digit higher than the last and I was hoping I could create a loop to avoid a huge block of code but I can't work out how to make a constant that will +1 with each loop.
Also, can I assume that a loop will start with the control with the lowest number i.e. Textbox1 and then work its way through the rest of them in order?
This is probably elementary, but I'm struggling and would appreciate any help as I have very little excel VBA experience to draw from.
I have assembled code which changes the cell color based on a value change in Column A. Column A will contain many different groups of repeating values. This code works well and and I have been able to figure out how to limit the number of colors to only 2. The end result is each set of similar values in column A is visually grouped by one of two alternating colors.
The number rows in the data set is variable as the data set is extracted from SAP. The number of columns is fixed.
What I want to do now is set the cell color in columns B through F the same color that was assigned to the row in column A. So if cell A3 is set to colorindex = 6, then I want to set the range of cells B3 to E3 to the same color.
Here is the code I am using to set the color of the cells in Column A:
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.
I have created an Excel spreadsheet teachers schedule for a small school with 8 teachers. I have assigned a number to each teacher (1 - 8) so that a number typed in a cell in Column E will cause a teachers name to appear in a cell in Column G. The ranges are E3:E20 and G3:G20. I hope to find a Macro that will display each teachers name in a different color.
I am looking for a very simple script that will achieve the following:
On the clicking of a button, Select and shade in a cell yellow, delete the yellow shading of the previous cell. The shading & selection should move up a column of cells, 1 at a time, in the following order:
From B10 to B9, then B9 to B8, B8 to B7 etc until the selection and shading is at B2. Once it is at B2 subsequent clicks will simply keep it at B2 (the top). Thus after 8 clicks the shading & selection should travel from B10 to B2, with only 1 cell being shaded yellow and selected at any one time.
I have 2 sheets, A & B. When I type something into sheet A, it goes to Sheet B, but if I change the cell color on Sheet A, I would like that to automatically color the same thing in Sheet B. How can I do this?
I am writing a program in excel spreadsheet and I was wondering how to fill an input cell with color automatically in excel 2007.
I mean that, say I am writing an addition program, I am giving an input numbers in B1 and B2 and i am writing formula in B3 (=B1+B2). I want excel to fill B1 and B2 with yellow/any color automatlically. Only the cells with number input should be highlighted.
I occasionally give presentations with Excel and would like to make it easier for the audience to see a particular cell when I move to it. The cursor can be tiny, and some people have a hard time seeing the cursor, so I use the keyboard to navigate to the cells I talk about. Yet, the cell, which then has a border around it, still can be hard to see.
Is there a way in Excel to have a cell that is highlighted, that is I move to a cell with the keyboard, so that it pops out in a different font color or background or format, when I move to it, and it automatically reverts to its usual format and color when I move away from it?
I am trying to simplify a spreadsheet. I have a column with dates from last year and I was wondering if there is a formula that would automatically change the color of the cell once the date is over one year to the day to show that the date in the cell has expired?
