Conditional Formatting Using A Macro ...

Apr 21, 2006

I am trying to work with conditional formatting using a macro.

How it works is I select the range I want to format manually then I run this macro.

It doesn't work

When I check the conditional format the formula is wrong. Instead of referencing the correct cell in columns E & F is is referencing E65282 & F65282

What do I need to change? ...

Macro To Print Record # To Record#

Mar 20, 2009

I'm trying to find a macro that will run allowing the user to select a 'starting record number' and a 'finishing record number' when printing.

I have a spreadsheet that feeds from a master list in excel, from over 5000 records.

I need to print the s'sheet with any given indivdual record's information at any given time.

Individual prints are fine. However if I wanted to print from record number 1500 to record number 3000 it would take me all day.

Is there a way I can set up a macro so an option form pops up? allowing selection of "From record" and "to Record" ?

VB Macro, FOR Loop With Conditional Formatting

Feb 25, 2010

I have a complex sheet where rows are continuosly overwritten and new data needs to be formatted each time. My macro works great aside from the fact the conditional format formula expression adds double quotes rendering the conditional format useless. After running the macro I can go into the conditional format field, remove the quotes, and the formatting formula works as expected. So...I first did a "record macro" to grab the code for conditional formatting:

Replacing Conditional Formatting With A Macro

Jun 17, 2009

I've got a lovely little spreadsheet which looks like a more complicated version of this:

CaseResult1Pass2Fail3N/A4Pass (mark-ups)5Pass

I have conditional formatting on each cell of column A (titled Case) which looks at the next door cell in column B (titled Result), and if it turns out Pass, it colours the cell in A green. If it's fail, it colours the cell red, and so on.

So my spreadsheet, after formatting, looks like this:

CaseResult1Pass2Fail3N/A4Pass (mark-ups)5Pass

However, with the "Pass (mark-ups)" option, I've run out of conditions allowed (since I'm on 2003 excel). I can colour it in the same colour as other conditions, using the OR function, but I'd rather have it a separate colour.

I've got this macro here (which I've picked off the internet somewhere):

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A5000")) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Target
Case "Passed"
icolor = 4

Macro For Conditional Formatting Bottom Border

Possible to create a macro that would detect end page (jumping from page 1 to page 2 for instance) and add a bottom border at the last row of the page.

Macro To Add Conditional Formatting To Variable Range

Jun 16, 2008

I have 2 columns 'C' and 'D' which I want to apply Conditional Formatting to (i.e. colour the background of the cell in column 'D' for the respective row in colum 'C') if they contain different values. I have the following

Sub CellCCondFormatting()
Dim j As Long
Range("C2").Select
j = Range("C2"). CurrentRegion.Rows.Count
MsgBox ("1st: " & j)
Range("C2:C" & j).FormatConditions.Delete
Range("C2:C" & j).FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlCellValue, Operator:=xlGreater, _
Formula1:="=D" & j
Range("C2:C" & j).FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 3
Range("C2:C" & j).FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlCellValue, Operator:=xlLess, _
Formula1:="=D" & j
Range("C2:C" & j).FormatConditions(2).Interior.ColorIndex = 4
MsgBox ("2nd pass: " & j)
End Sub

It iterates through all rows in my CurrentRegion OK but the Conditional Formatting 'formula' operates on the wrong value in column 'D'. For example, when viewed via menu option Format > Conditional Formatting... row 2 column 'D's Conditional Formatting value is D1714, row 3 column 'D's value is 'D1715' and so on....................

Macro Or VBA To Provide Conditional Formatting Based On Formulas

Mar 13, 2014

Is it possible to record a macro or write VBA to apply conditional formatting to certain columns of cells where there are exceptions/conditions for the different types of conditional formatting? If possible, can those exceptions/conditions be based on a specific type of formula?

See my DATA EXAMPLE picture linked below. On that example, Columns K-Q need conditional formatting but manager wants row 38 to be blue based on the fact that it is using a =SUM() formula. This represents one "part" out of 75 that could be on a given sheet, each "part" has a different number of sub-parts that are used. So I can't just highlight columns K-Q because of the occasional SUM row that needs to be blue.

The conditional formatting that I am currently using in Columns K-Q only apply to K3:Q37 and not to row 38 at all. I currently have conditional formatting on columns K-N, P-Q where when '=ISNUMBER(xx)' returns TRUE is white and when it returns FALSE is light orange. Column O uses '=ISTEXT(xx)' for the same colors. Manager doesn't want to copy paste that formatting and wants it setup as a Macro/VBA.

DATA EXAMPLE - [URL]

RELEVANT INFORMATION

Columns K-Q need conditional formattingColumn K - Formula pasted in only on lines that require the Sales Price to show, will return a number value or error

(=VLOOKUP(B38,'SaleWS'!C:G,5,0).Column L - Formula pasted in every cell in column except L38 is '=IF(Hxx="G",IF(Exx"Description EX",VLOOKUP($Dxx&$Gxx,'PriceWS'!$D:$F,3,0),""),"")'.

L38 has a sum of all above valuesColumn M - Formula pasted in every cell in column except M38 is '=IF(ISNUMBER(Lxx),Ixx*Lxx,"")'.

M38 has a sum of all above valuesColumn N - Formula pasted in every cell in column except N38 is '=IF(Exx="Description EX",VLOOKUP(Dxx,'Material'!A:O,15,0),"")'.

N38 has a sum of all above valuesColumn O - No formulas here, just manual entryColumn P - Formula pasted in every cell in column except P38 is '=IF(H38="P",VLOOKUP($Dxx&$Oxx,'PressWS'!$A:$L,12,0),"")'.

P38 has a sum of all above valuesColumn Q - Formula pasted in every cell in column except Q38 is '=IF(H37="W",VLOOKUP($Dxx,'WeldWS'!$A:$F,6,0),IF(Hxx="T",VLOOKUP($Dxx,'WeldWS'!$A:$F,6,0),""))'.

Q38 has a sum of all above values.Rows where they are using SUM for all the rows above for that part need to be blue

Macro To Add Conditional Formatting Code To Variable Range

Jun 12, 2008

I am working with a large report that needs to be broken out and sent as separate files to recipients for confidentiality purposes. I'd rather not use views/protection since there are many different ways particular people need to see the data, plus it is a very large file and flattening it works to everyone's advantage. My goal is a macro that will copy each tab into separate workbooks, paste special values, and save as each as Cell A1 (or the tab name-same thing). I have tried recording macros and editing (I'm very new to VBA) many times but it's a mess.

Macro Fill Down Function Is Changing Format In Conditional Formatting

Dec 18, 2013

When I hit the macro code you see below I get both columns D and E, starting from row 18, to get 'filled down' to the specified spot. Every second row has a conditional format (when a value is entered in column A) to change the row to the color grey, and every row between it has a conditional format (when any value is entered in column A as well) to have the row changed to the color red. The issue here is that the Macro code messes up the conditional formatting and uses the conditional formatting of those two cells, which are being dragged down, for those entire filled-down columns! This is what I am starting off with test1.xlsm and this is what I end up with using the macro code below (or doing it manually)

test2.xlsm

Is there a way for the Macro code to bypass this issue?

Macro For Conditional Formatting Using Isna, Match And Indirect In The Formula

Apr 2, 2009

I have configured conditional formatting to check valid entries in a dependant list. I used the solution provided by SHG at:

Now I need to use a macro to activate and deactivate the conditional formatting due to performance issues.

When the formula for data validation includes the indirect funtion I got a compile error and the macro won't run.

Macro And Conditional Formatting: Formats The Data That Is Pasted Into It From An Access Database

Dec 2, 2008

The macro firstly formats the data that is pasted into it from an access database, then it does some calculations to determine when 10 working days from a specific date is, and when 20 working days from the date is (these go in new columns at the end of the data). The macro will also add new columns which say "Not resolved" if there is no date in the Resolution column, "Yes" in the "10 working days met?" column if the condition is met and the same for 20 workings days in a different column. As the colouring etc takes a long time I really wanted to add as conditional formatting to the macro!

how to attach a spreadsheet here then I can show you what the outcome we want is. A point to note is that there is not a set number of rows each time we do this, and I don't just want 1 cell to be coloured - I want to specify which cells in the row are coloured depending on the results in another cell on that row.

Getting Error "Unable To Record" When Record A Macro

Sep 1, 2009

This problem seemed to revolve around "digital signing" with further macro changes done from a different machine (without the proper certificate). Excel warns of the problem and then "unsigns" the project.

I've got a problem with spreadsheets that I've been working on. Now, when I tell it to record a macro, I get the macro name, shortcut assignment dialog box and then an error "Unable to record." After "Ok"ing that dialog box, the normal recording macro dialog comes up. Also, lo and behold, there will not be a macro recorded.

I've got no protected cells or sheets and it doesn't matter what security level is set. It is a "signed" macro but I can take off the signature and still have the problem. I checked for "Help - About" for deactivated modules and there was none.

Now() As Record Id; What Record ID Schemes Are Fequently Employed Besides Date/time

May 25, 2007

I seek advice on using the value of NOW() as a record ID in an address book program. Question #1: Do Excel developers often use a record ID? Question #2: What record ID schemes are fequently employed besides date/time? I have decided to create an Excel address book as an exercise to increase my knowledge of VBA, and also as a useful application for work.

I realize that a record ID is not essential in Excel in the way that it is essential in Access, but I feel the need to have some unique ID associated with each address, so that I may have different worksheets, with data related to a given Contact, sort and manipulate it, if necessary, but have the record ID as a way to restore the relationship of rows to a given Contact, and also, as a handy way to examine the data in the date/time sequence in which it was entered. I have experimented with the following code, to assure myself that I can access the number returned by the NOW() function, manipulate it as a string, and format in various ways if necessary.

Dim n As Double
n = Now()
sn = Str(n)
p = InStr(sn, ".")
first = Left(sn, (p - 1))
l = Len(sn)
d = l - p
S = Mid(sn, (p + 1), d)....................

Create Add New Record Macro In A Sheet

Oct 31, 2008

I have a table where I have dropdown menu for selecting data and a vlookup for filling other fields.However, I would like to create totals at the bottom of the sheet. But I dont know how many rows I will need because the data to this sheet are added from another sheet in the workbook. I would like to create something like this :

No. Name Weight Amount Total Weight Unit Price Total Price
1. Product 30 2 60 100 200
then I will not have no. 2 , but add new record button that will create a new row and will copy the dropdown menu and the Vlookup function so the format will be the same for product no.2 as it is for the product no.1 ... thus I will not have any unfilled rows in the table and after the last row there will be a totals row that will sum up the whole table... How to do that "add new record button" so that in the table will show up only those rows, that are actually filled with data?

Record Macro Relative To Selection

Jan 27, 2010

This recorded macro inserts a line below the cell that active when it was first recorded. It then copies some text and a formula to the line that was created.

Sub Macro11()
Rows("10:10").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove
Range("A9:E9").Select
Selection.Copy
Range("A10").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Range("H9").Select
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Selection.Copy
Range("H10").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Range("F9").Select
End Sub

If you run this macro again at a different cell position, it goes back to the first starting position and repeats the same action. I see that the cell references from the first recording are fixed in the macro. I can't figure out how to make the macro use the new current cell position as the starting positiion when it runs again.
