Automatically Color Fill Rows Based On Changing Column Information
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.

Macro: Changing Color Of Coloumn Header Based On Rows Color
I wrote a macro to color the cell values in the rows based on their average value. For eg if the cell value is less than 0.2 Avg, they should be red color,if value is between 0.2 and 0.5 it should be yellow. This part is working fine
Now based on the color of the rows cells , need to write a macro for the header one. Logic is Coloum header should be in red colour, if in one or more number of rows cells are red. same with yellow ones. Could you please help me out in solving this with logic.
Delete Rows Based On Fill Color
i found a link to my problem in the subject title below,
The guy at the end of the post says he got it working in the end, but no one seems to have posted the final solution - could someone tell me if the solution is actually in the thread, and if so where!
My problem is outlined by this guy - basically i want to be able to delete rows in a range that have no fill color, and so keep the ones that are colored.
Automatically Color Rows Based On Cell Value
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.
Automatically Fill Information Across Worksheets
I have created a spreadsheet that I must fill out daily. this worksheet has averages that must be automtically shared with a "master" worksheet.
information from sheet2!b23
information from sheet3!b23

must automatically be transfered to
in that order
at this time I am typing in =sheet2!b23 on sheet1 everytime, I want to avoid this.
If you are asking yourself why? I dont blame you but it needs be this way so I can average each days spreadsheet.
Changing Cell Color Based On Changing Values
This may have been answered on here but can not seem to find it. My situation is I have values in A1,A2 & A3 that are like counter reading so the value is always changing. What I am looking to do is change the cell color if one of the values is over 500 from the other two values. Say A1 is 3000, A2 is 3250 and A3 is 3500. I would like the cell for A3 to change color.
Automatically Hide Rows Based On A Value In Column Q
After the user selects something using the validation list in cell F38, the macro should check in column Q in the rows 44 till 425 for "hide". For each row in which it finds "hide" the entire row should be hidden.
I have the code below but it does't work yet. It calculates for ages and afterwards only the first 2 rows of the 381 are hidden (probably because the third row is not "hide").
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim MyRange As Range
Dim ThisCell As Range
Target = Range("F38")
Set MyRange = Range("Q44:Q" & Range("Q425").End(xlUp).Row)
For Each ThisCell In MyRange
If ThisCell.Value = "hide" Then
ThisCell.EntireRow.Hidden = True

Automatically Copy Rows Based On Criteria In Column
I'm not sure that I'll be able to explain this clearly, so I've attached an example. There are 3 columns - Issue, Action Group and Status. Many Issues belong to the same Action Group and others do not belong to any Action Group. The is also a Status summary section that has the total Issues and Actions associated with each status. For example the Status called Resolved could have 10 issues and 5 Actions (including blanks). The problem is that I can't figure out a way to get the total for the Actions. As I said this explanantion isn't great, so the attached sheet
Changing Color Of Rows
I have a spreadsheet where you can choose one of two options per row.
The listbox says either CASH or CHECK. If the user selects CASH, I would like the row to stay the same color. If the user selects CHECK I would like the row to be highlighted or change color. Upon a glance, anyone who knew the system could then tell how many people paid by CHECK, and who they were.
Change Font Color In A Range Based On One Cells Information
I have attached an example file.. Basically I want the text in a range to change to red if one cell="Description".
Also, I want a cell's text to turn blue if it's corresponding data in the row says "Click on Title to Follow Link"
The example file explains it a lot better..
Thanks for the help.. Sorry if this may seem like a duplicate post but I was not able to get any of the examples I searched for to work that others have posted.. Also, maybe conditional formatting would be an option here but I could not get it to work as it will only meet the first condition that comes across thats true...
Automatically Fill In Column When Certain Cell In Column Changed
I am trying to have some automation to my WS and what I want to do, is if a certain column (column 104) is changed, it will fill out that column with the data entered as long as the account is the same (column 5). Here is the code I tried, but realized very quickly, it puts me into a loop. This is being called by a change worksheet fuction
If Target.Column = 104 Then
If IsEmpty(Target) Then
testacct = Cells(Target.Row, 5)
temptest = testacct
s_TempSwitch = Target.Value
Testoffset = 0
Do While temptest = testacct
temptest = Cells(Target.Row + Testoffset, 5)
Cells(Target.Row + Testoffset, 104).Value = s_TempSwitch
Testoffset = Testoffset + 1
Changing Color Of A Cell Based On A Legend
I think looking at the attachment might make more sense, but here is a brief description of what I want to do.

I need to do this in VBa but my VBA is not at all good.
Color Changing Column Chart
I am trying to create a chart that will show each month of the year's workload based on orders due for each month. I have all of the information needed on a spreadsheet to chart this into a simple chart showing the load, however, I want a little extra on the charting to show me additional details.
I would like for my chart to also display the available man hours for each month against the workload. I would like for the available man hours to be displayed by color changes in each month bar column of the graph.
So if I had 1000 hours of work in the month of April and only 960 man hours available in April it would have shown me throughout the month as the chart grew that I was "Green" for all hours below 860. The as the chart grew past 860 that portionof the chart changed to "Orange" telling me that the hours were soon to be full. Once it reached 960 that part of the chart would turn "Red" as an indication that we have more workload than we can complete for that month. This would be useful for me as an overtime tool, as well as for review for additional man hours or a decrease in man hours.
Change The Fill Color Of A Cell Based On Its Value
I'm using Excel 2003- and I am trying to change the fillColor of a cell based on the value of that cell.
If I use Conditional Formatting I can only use 3 colors, I'd like to use 8 or 9. Is there another way to do this without using the Conditional Formatting?
I'd like the result to look something like this-
I've looked at the similar threads in this Forum, but I couldn't find exactly what I needed.

Name Sheet Automatically Based On Changing Cell
In my sheet called summary I have the names of the rest of the tabs in the book in cells B5 to B34. We want to be able to change the names of the tabs by changing their respective cell on the summary tab. So “sheet1” corresponds to B5, “sheet2” to B6, “sheet3” to B7, etc.. So if I change the name in B5 to say “APPLE” I want the tab for sheet1 to change to APPLE. When I change B10 from “sheet6” to “Lemon” I want sheet6 to be titled “Lemon”.
Changing Font Color Based On Change From Previous Value
I want the order size to be colored red. If the most recent order is larger than the previous order, I want the order size to be colored blue. If the most recent order is the exact same size as the previous order, I want the order to be colored black.
How would I make code that would let me "remember" the previous order size and the most recent order size, and let me compare them to conditionally format the font?
Automatically Filter Worksheet Based On Changing Cell Value
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
ActiveSheet.AutoFilterMode = False
Range("d6:g6").AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:=Range("e1"), Operator:=xlAnd, _
I've attached the file also.
What i intend to do is that : (1) if i enter a value in E3, the filter should only apply using E3 value (currently its applying E3 value but if E4 is kept blank, it takes that as = " " ) . Unfortunately, i need to have the and condition, so i have to find a way in spite of this condition. Any way out ??
(2) If i enter values in A) E3 & F3 B) E3, F3, G3...then it ahould make multiple filtering possible. But when i try to apply such a condition, the same problem as in point (1) occurs, it takes the and empty criteria range as = " "
Ranges, Column And Changing Values Automatically
I m trying to get around here within the company I work for.
I'm interested to know how to set a specific range value e.g. "5 to 10" once a value is between those 2 numbers, and then if the value in the next row below is 34.12 it will be "30 to 35".
Here's an example code I constructed, but the darn thing just keeps on running
Color Column Charts Based On Font Color Data Cells
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.
Copy Data Based Off Of Fill Color (month) And Year From Another Workbook
I have a detailed note inside biweekly.xls, it explains everything in context.
Two excel sheets, one is updated manually (Vikki's Yearly Averages.xls), while the other is for reporting (biweekly.xls)
The coding will all be in biweekly.xls.
First, it needs to take a date to the right of a name from biweekly.xls and use the month and year from that date for the search.
Then it needs to look in VYK.xls under the name and copy every entry starting in the year specified and month specified and ending at the current date.
Comments On Column G Based On Information On Column A
Am trying to put comments on column G based on information on column A. Column A contains a grade eg CDEF picked up from another sheet using vlookup. This grade is suppossed to be the same, but I have cases where I add a different grade say GHIJ to fill up my 99 required grades.Column G is for comments such as "Transfered" (which at the moment am entering manually)How can I use a formular so that each time I transfer from another grade other that the one intended it returns a comment "tranfered" on column G? Is it also possible to indicate the cell from which vlookup picked that grade on the same comment column G.
Print Worksheets Based On Information In Column
I have a workbook with many sheets, all of which derive information from the first sheet. On the first sheet, I enter values from say J1:J29. Each of these values is fed into one of the subsequent worksheets. I would like to have some code that would look at my range, determine which cells are used and print the corresponding worksheets. Write now I have a bunch of If statements that say
If Sheets("Worksheet").Range("j8") > 0 Then
the problem is that it takes to long as each statement is evaluated and the print command sent.
The values in column J have names in column I and while the names do not exactly match the worksheets, a person could look at the name and match the correct sheet. For instance the name in column I that corresponds to the worksheet name 698-ALY W1222 is 698/ALY.
Auto Fill Column B Based Contents Of Column A
I have a list that is streets and addresses. All contained in column A. Cell A1 is the street name and then Column A3 is the street number. This repeats down column A for almost 1000 street names. I need to fill column B3 with the street name, as well as B4, B5, B6, etc until the street name changes. I was trying to do this with an if..then but couldn't get it to work. I also tried to work on a do.. loop looking for the change from a string to number. But my programming is a little rusty. If anyone can help I was be forever grateful. I mean the alternative is to sit here and copy and paste all day.
Changing Cell Fill Colour Based On Another Cell Value
I have a table:......
I want to colour in the relevant cells for each ref depending on the numbers in the stage column. So for the first line, the cells in columns 1,2,4&6 need to be shaded in. For the second line, the cells in columns 1,2,3,4,&5 need to be shaded in. I already have a lot of conditional formatting set on the sheet so need to do this with a macro.
I have tried to write something but am having issues with it finding the 1 and shading in the correct column but then jumping out of the loop and on to the next cell.
Conditionally Format Each Group Of Rows And Each Column And Color The Cell In Each Column
I've a worksheet that is 3750 rows of cells from A to DT and contains only numbers with the exception of a header row. The rows are in groups, primarily 4 rows, although there are exceptions - these rows are separated by blank rows. Small example as follows.
I have been trying to conditionally format each group of rows and each column and color the cell in each column of four (or less) numbers in each group that represents the maximum number.
It was easy enough to come up with the conditional formatting BUT it will take forever to do this manually. I've been told to use a macro but I know nothing of programming. Has anyone seen or heard of a macro that might already be written to perform this onerous task.
Copy Information Between Worksheets Based On Specific Column Entry
My workbook contains several worksheets each recording the results of equipment tests - one sheet for each piece of equipment. Rather than open each worksheet to check the date of the last test, other 'overview' worksheets pick up and display the last test date from each equipment record using the formula =MAX('sheetref'!A15:A500). Is there a better formula to do this?
Some items of equipment are tested at more than one frequency, ie Monthly, Yearly, etc. Therefore, the entry on row 15 of an equipment record may be column A 28/10/08 column D 'M' and row 16 column A 29/10/08 column D 'Y'. The above formula will only display the last test date, irrespective of frequency. There is a seperate overview sheet for each test frequency therefore, I need to modify the formula so that the date it copies from the equipment record worksheet to the overview worksheet is the date of the last test for the specified frequency.
Fill Column Based On Column In Another Workbook
I am looking for a macro that will fill the column C by looking at column A at another workbook.
A(column that will look) B C
blala blabla Blabla
Workbook missing entries in C row:
A B C
blabla blabla Null
So the workbook that missing entries in Column C,will look for it,by looking at
at column A,wich is the same at full workbook.
Here the workbook wich the values will be taken at Column A, named as archive
And the the workbook (named 900066_027_2373.xls)wich the column C will be filled,by looking at column A.Then find that code in the "archive.xls".See what has in it's A cell.Copy it.Paste it in current cell.
Macro: Changing Cell Color Based On Date In Cell
I did a search on this site and found some code I was looking for (see link:
http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...e-in-cell.html - Leith Ross's response code).
The code works perfectly, however, if I save the workbook with a different spreadsheet on top than the spreadsheet referred to in this code, I get an error message: Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' failed.
I should state that I did change "Private Sub Workbook_Open()" to "Private Sub Auto_Open()".
I assume I need to modify the code but am unsure as to how.
Color Fonts In Column G Based On Contents In Column E
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.
Changing Values In Column Based On Value In One Cell
Based on the attached (much simplified) spreadsheet, I want the values in the green cells on the "Month" page (B6:B10) to vary depending on the value in the yellow cell (B4), and for these cells to to look up the relevant column in the "Full Year" page - i.e. if B4 (on "Month") = Jan, look up C6:C10 in "Full Year"; if B4 = Feb, look up D6:D10, and so on. I know I can nest IF functions in order to achieve this, but could be a bit messy. I'm sure there must be a simpler formula within Excel ... just don't know what it's called!
Fill In Cells With A Value Based On A Neighbouring Column
I have 2 columns, the second column has some empty cells in the end of the column

(I have already tried the specialcells(xlCellTypeBlanks) but that did not work as the empty cells are not always "blank" as well)
Hide Rows Based On Color
I have the following code to hide rows based upon whether or not the cell in column A is black or not.
Dim Rng As Range
Dim MyCell As Range
Set Rng = Range("A2:A36635")
For Each MyCell In Rng
If MyCell.Interior.ColorIndex = 1 Then
MyCell.EntireRow.Hidden = True
I was thinking of taking this one step further and having the rows hide automatically once the cell is turned black allowing the user to bypass having to click on a macro button.
Changing Column Letters In Formulas Based On Month
I'm trying to update a series of different sheets in a book based on what month I have filled in data for. For example, at September Month End, I will fill in data vertically. Now, I have different tabs that reference certain cells in that column. There row number never changes, but once a month I have to go through and increase their column letters by 1, and there are a lot of places to update. Can anyone lend me some ideas or a solution to how I should go about using formula/macro to update these cells.
