Automatically Shade Cell Dependant Upon Text In Aother Cell
Jul 13, 2009
Im writing a spreadsheet that will act as a hotel room booking diary. There will be 52 sheets (representing each week of the year) and each sheet will therefore represent one week
Each sheet will look at operate the same. Running horizontally will be the days of the week and running vertically will be each of the bedrooms. There are 22 bedrooms in total and each room will have 12 cells allotted to it for each day - lets call this a 'block' and presume that the first block runs from C10 to c21. The final of these cells C21 will have a validation and the user can select 'PAID' 'TO PAY' or 'INVOICED'
If the user selects 'PAID' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade GREEN
If the user selects 'TO PAY' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade RED
If the user selects 'INVOICE' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade YELLOW
I have put together a duration schedule for work and have it set up now so the days with automatically fill if they are on or between the start/end date. Below is the formula that I have constructed. As of right now each activity is colored the same. I would like to have each activity match the color of the person performing it. My crew names are all in column A with a conditional format to be color coded with the name entered.
how hard would it be to chane the background colour of a cell when a certain word is entered into it? so someone would type 'james' and press enter then the cell would turn red....would only be in a set cell range..
Is there a way to make the attached worksheet automatically shade out all the Saturdays & Sundays in any given month everytime you change the Month/Year cell at the top of the worksheet, as example? I've tried using the weekday/Weekend formula, but can't quite get it right.
Is it possible to use a formula to shade a cell dependent on a condition? I have tried an if formula (see below) but it is incorrect. =if('November 2006 SVOC'!B6>'March 2006 SVOC'!C6,'November 2006 SVOC'!B6 [red],if('November 2006 SVOC'!B6<'March 2006 SVOC'!C6,'November 2006 SVOC'!B6 [blue],))
I want to enter the word 'Closed' in cell B1 when the due date in cell A1 is exceeded by 272 days. I have tried using conditional formatting and excel accepts the formula but nothing seems to happen. Here is what I have tried;
"A" in cell A1, B in B1, "C" in C1, "D" in D1, "E" in E1 and "F" in F1.
There are two projects.
Project 1 has phase A, D & F and Project 2 has phase A, B, C, D & E.
My Specification follows...
1). Take Prject 1 - Which starts from A...in cell A2 I will keyin "A". When the phase comes to an end I will key in the end date of the phase. As soon as I key in the end date in cell A2 Letter D should automatically appear in the cell D2 and when Phase D comes to an end I will key in the end date in Cell D2 which should automatically keyin F in the cell F2. and is the same case for Project 2.
I am trying to enter a value in a cell which is dependent on a corresponding value in a table. I have a table A which has a cab type and a corresponding cab number. What I want to achieve is that when I enter the cab number in another table say in cell (D3), the cab type is automatically entered in cell (C3).
I have a work sheet that has a date in a cell B7 and the system Date is Cell AB4.
What I wish for the sheet to do is shade the cell depending on the following criteria: If the date in Cell B7 is 2years and 10 months Before the System date to shade it Green, If the Date is Between 2 years 10 month and 3 Years before the System date shade yellow and if it is 3years and over shade Red.
For example if the date in B7 is 11-12-08 and the system date is 13-01-09 then the cell will be shaded Green.
I've never dealt with vba before and I'm not even sure if that's correct. I wish to lock a worksheet with two cells left unlocked, when an entry is made in one or other of these two cells I need other cells to become unlocked.
Programming Excel VBA Macro to do OCR (text recognition) from a prt scr screen capture image and input the text into cells. Currently my Excel file has a push-button, and upon clicking on it the macro pastes into Excel the current clipboard image I have created by pressing prt scr while in another program. The macro then crops the image to the region with the applicable text. I have to then manually type the text I see in image format into the appropriate cells.
the VBA coding to automate this? I'd like it to use the clipboard image and run it through OneNote OCR, after which the applicable text values are automatically entered into the cells. Ideally the code will first crop to the region with the desired text before it does OCR. If this is not feasible, it will need to incorporate a method (keyword search?) to hone in on the desired text after the entire prt scr image has been OCRed.
I have a column with dates of July 1 of every year. How can I use conditional formatting to shade a cell a certain color based on July 1 of every year? The cell for July 2013 should be shaded, when 2014 comes, it is no longer shaded, then 2014 becomes shaded, & so on...
so basically, im trying to find a way to get cell G3 to have Value X dependant on value from Cell G2. e.g. if cell g2 is 8 and 9, g3=10 if g2 is 11, g3=20 and so on. i dont mind having to add a preset table of values if we need, but it would be set on sheet 2.
EDIT Value from cell G2 will always be between 4 and 20, set by the user. what i want is that each of those values gives G3 a pre-planned value. if g2 has value 4. g3 value would be -5 if g2 has value 5. g3 value would be 0 if g2 has value 6. g3 value would be 5 if g2 has value 7. g3 value would be 5 if g2 has value 8. g3 value would be 10 if g2 has value 9. g3 value would be 10 if g2 has value 10. g3 value would be 15 if g2 has value 11. g3 value would be 20 if g2 has value 12. g3 value would be 20 if g2 has value 13. g3 value would be 25 and so on until it reaches g2=20
i was thinking of setting a table on sheet 2 for the g3 values, and get an IF function to do something like IF g2 = a then x, if g2 = b then y etc etc. im just not sure how it would work, unless an INDEX function would work better?
I am trying to make an Excel sheet with a frontpage sheet and a data sheet. In the data sheet I have several columns with data and then in the end a cloumn with pictures. On the front page sheet I can easily with VLOOKUP formulas transfer the desired data from the data sheet to the front page sheet but I cannot seem to figure out how to copy the picture. When I try to copy the cell with the picture in it, the formula only copies the cell value, which is "0" because the only thing which is in the cell is the picture. how to copy a given picture from one sheet to another based on the information in another cell like a "Vlookup" formula?
Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A10")) Is Nothing Then With Target Select Case .Value
Case "(None)": .Interior.ColorIndex = Null Case "One": .Interior.ColorIndex = 38 Case "Two": .Interior.ColorIndex = 18 Case "Three": .Interior.ColorIndex = 35 Case Else: .Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone End Select End With End If
My problem is that columns A to H are yellow(36 I think) and are merged cells. And Cells AW2 to BD2 are also yellow. The cells inbetween are white.
At the moment when the Cell value is "(None)" the cells turn white, I dont want this. I would like them to go to default.
i have a column with numbers in, in numerical order, however some cells are null. ie. 1 2
4 .. etc. I need to put paste images from a folder next to these numbers. (1.bmp next to '1' etc) and i need to leave the empty cells in. This code is sort of right..
Sub aids() Dim strPath As String Dim strFile As String Dim lngRow As Long Dim objPic As Object Dim sngMaxWidth As Single On Error Resume Next lngRow = 2 strPath = "C:images" strFile = Dir(strPath & "*.bmp") With ActiveSheet Do While strFile <> ""..........
I have a spreadsheet where I would like the rows to change colour dependant on value input to certain cells, i.e. if a any value other than a zero put into a cell it changes to green, if a zero put into a cell it changes to grey, if a zero put in but a value put in another cell it changes to another colour, if values already in are taken out of other cells, it changes to yellow.
I've looked on FAQ and there are a lot of similar things but not quire wha I'm after and even thn I dont know how to use VBA etc to achieve.
i have a order form that is customer dependant. the cust name on the form is manually entered by the user within a msg box. i have specific cusotmer folders on a shared machines C drive where i would like to save these excel docs to.
i understand that the cust name must match the name of the file and there needs to be a way to save those that do not have specific folder matching what was entered as the customer name.
the overall goal is to have the file name saved as CustomerNameDeliveryDateInvoiceNumber.xls where CustName is from cell "M3", delivery date is "Q7" and InvoiceNumber is "Q1".
