I need to run a loop through a column of values (attachment col B) and when it finds a "J" it will apply conditional formatting to a row of 4 cells directly adjacent. The attachment is a theoretical before & after.
I´m having aproblem with Excel 2007 about Conditional Formatting. I have a row of Dates for example 02-01-2009 03-01-2009 04-01-2009 , etc in different columns.
Then what I want to do is use Conditional Formatting to Format cells on several rows below according to the day (if its weekend paint red, if not, dont do anything). I'm using the "Use a formula to determine which cells to format" and the condition is (supposing the cells with dates are A1 to C1) =WEEKDAY(A1:C1) > 5 .
So with those 3 dates provided lets suppose Januar2nd is not a weekday, so the outputIwant is: Red White White, (Next Row) Red White White, etc for several rows.
Now what I think is not right is it only works for the row in which I have the cursor so its like: (Lets imagine I selected 3 rows on which I want to see that output) Red White White (The row in which the cursor is works fine), but the next row goes Red Red Red and the third the same.
I conditionally formated a spreadsheet to delete all repeats. Now I have my rows numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 9 15, 20, 26, 36 (no specific order because the number of repeats were random). I inserted a new column (A) and want a running set of numbers (1,2,3,4) starting at A4. The only problem is that when I put a 1 in the A4 box and try to drag down in the bottom right corner of the cell with CTL+Click, it copies the number 1 all of the way down. What do I do?
It brought up my own thread, I didn't realise it untill today, but the answer I been using uses conditional formating to highlight the lowest cells in each row. And as Sicarii pointed out earlier today you can't select a cell my color with conditional formating turned on. can I highlight some other way or can I select cells to copy some diffrent way. This is the VBA I use to select the lowest price.
Sub FIND_LOW_PRICE() Range("a1:H6").Select Selection.FormatConditions.Delete Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, _ Formula1:="=and(a1=min($a1:$H1),not(isblank(a1)))" Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 6 End Sub
And this is the code that Sicarii supplied and correctly warned me will not work with conditional formating.
Sub COPY_BASED_ON_COLOR() Dim RngCol As Range Dim lLoop As Long With Sheets("Sheet1") Set RngCol = .Range("A1", .Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp)) End With For lLoop = RngCol.Rows.Count To 1 Step -1 If Range("B" & lLoop).Interior.ColorIndex = 6 Then Sheets("Sheet2").Range("B" & lLoop) = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("B" & lLoop)........................
I have a column "g" with this conditional formatting:- =A2<>A3 Format Bottom Border. However I will pass this workbook onto someone else who will fill in the text in column "g". They will use copy/paste text from other cells or columns even other workbooks that will not have the conditional formatting.
I have used Cells > Projection > Locked unchecked then used Tools > Protection > Protect Sheet and checked all. There does not seem to be a way to unlock the cell but protect Conditional formatting. Each time I copy and paste from other non formatted cells it wipes out my formatting.
I have a range which has conditional formats based on other cells. I want to copy this range into another sheet and retain the current formats as fixed formats without copying the conditional formulae. ideally in VBA.
In conditional format I've this formula =countif($Q$2:$V$2,B2)>0 which will return any matching numbers in yellow. My question is can I insert that once that row reaches 10 matching numbers the row turns green.
Is it possible to format a cell based upon the format of another cell? For instance, if the cell to the left of a target cell is bold, is there a conditional formatting cell that can be used so that the target cell is bold as well?
I have a large spreadsheet with a number of columns that are set up for conditional formatting. For example a column of "BUY"'s and "SELL"'s where the "BUY"s are formatted with the default "light green fill, dark green text". I have other columns that are conditionally formatted using a formula. When I base the result on a formula I don't seem to have the option to use the default formats. Is it possible to use the defaults or maybe even how to customize my format to look like the default? It would look a lot better if I had a uniform red/green style throughout the sheet.
I would like to change the number format of a cell in function of the value of another cell. For example, if A1=1, then I would like the cell A2 to be displayed as a percentage. If A1=2, then would like the cell A2 to be displayed as a number.
I have a worksheet with conditional formatting to shade (with the color grey) every nth column using the =MOD(COLUMN(),5)=0 function. I need to manually add cells formatted with various other colors to my worksheet. Some of the colored cells overlay the conditionally formatted shaded columns and the shading shows rather than the colors. I want colors to show on top of the conditional shading.
conditional formatting in Excel. I have two columns with pertinent information. I need to know the following and format accordingly:
1. Is the number in column A positive or negative? 2. Is the number in column B less than 0.05 or 0.10?
I would then like Column C to just be highlighted a certain color depending on the combination... there are 5 possible combinations and I would like the cells to be formatted so that:
1. Positive and less than 0.05 - Bright yellow 2. Positive and less than 0.10 - Pale yellow 3. Negative and less than 0.05 - Bright green 4. Negative and less than 0.10 - Pale green 5. This "combo" just means the criteria wasn't meant... which is possible b/c sometimes Column A may have text instead of a number of b/c the number in column B is not less than 0.10. If either of these is true, I want the cell to remain blank.
As a pert of a spreadsheet I have 2 columns (M5:N400) of 400 cells deep. Each cell in these columns contains a formula that counts days, when appropriate. They can end up showing a value of blank, a number between 0 and 5, or any number greater than 5. (But very rarely greater than 30)
If the number is greater than 5 then it means that it has exceeded it's target time and I wish to highlight this with conditional formatting (CF). I have a CF on all cells in both columns that says.
If "The cell value" is "Greater than" "5"... then format the background colour to a pale yellow.
It works, but doesn't work.
If the cell value is 0 to 5 it's unchanged. Good. If the cell value is >5 it changes. Good. BUT, if the cell is blank it also changes. Bad!!!
I assume it is because it is looking at the fact that there is a formula in the cell, even though the displayed value is "". So I tried a second level saying that if the cell is equal to "" then no format, but it still changes.
I want to format 3 columns in excel depending on certain value from another column. By example: I have the columns A B C completed with some text. On the column D it will be the numbers 0 or 1. If the number is 0 the background color from A,B,C columns shall be Green, if the number is 1 the color shall be red.
I have tried in conditional formatting with the formula =$D$1=0 but the color of the columns are changing only depending on the value from cell D1. I don't know what is the correct formula. For column A1 I want to check the value from D1, A2 - D2, A3 - D3,...,An - Dn.
I am working with the Conditional Formatting, which is fine for one cell. Here is what I am trying to do: IF cell in $A1 = 1 then bold $B2:$M2 and apply solid line border to top of cell ranges. I have tried conditional formatting but it only formats the cells in column A. And I can't seem to find a BOLD statement for the cell formulas.
A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.
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)
Is there a way for the Macro code to bypass this issue?
I have two Sheets, first is Service Data, the second is Log Sheet. In the Service Data sheet I have a column of serial numbers in column A. I also have a column of serial numbers in the Log Sheet, column A.
I'm looking for a conditional format whereas I enter numbers into column A on the Log sheet it will auto highlight the cell if I duplicate a serial number from row A in the Service Data sheet. I would like it to highlight the Duplicated number on the Log sheet. I know new versions of excel make it easier to do this but unfortunately I have Excel 2003.
Is there an easy way to copy conditional formatting? I need to copy the same scenario so that it adjusts for each row that it's on (the way formulas do).
For instance, I need to copy cells I4:L4 all the way to rows I84:L84. And I want the rows to adjust depending on what row they're on, like formulas seem to (as apposed to referencing the original cells).
I'm running a spreadsheet at the moment in 2007, and one of the funcitons I've made it for certain cells to either change format if the number is to big or to small depending on the cell it is.
I have formatted all for one line against duplicate scores on the same line. The problem is this is time consuming and there are 22 different lines. Because with Conditional Formating you can't simply drag like you can with formulas, I was wondering if there was a more simple approach. I have demonstrated the formating required on Row 6, and require the same formating on rows 8:10, 14:26, 32:36.
Also, just to make things complicated, the values change for each line. I have attatched the file. Row 6 with the label DEMO LINE contains all the correct formating I require.
I am trying to figure out how to copy and paste conditional formatting.
1371908# on hand 16458 ACNF18051 208 ACNF18061 104 ACNF30081 208 1371908 Total416104
1371911# on hand 7053 ACNF18051 208 ACNF18061 104 ACNF30081 208 1371911 Total416104
for instance in the above.. I want to black out any number in the "total" (bold) row that is less than the On Hand Qty (bold and underlined number) and I want to use a running total. For instance for part 1371911 with an On Hand Qty of 7053, the on hand is larger than the the first total of 416 so 416 should be blacked out, it is also larger than 416+104 so 104 should be blacked out as well.
This will continue until the on hand qty is less than the running total. I can conditionally format this one at a time and it could take forever as there are 3000+ lines of spreadsheet. If there is any way that you can tell me how to set the condtional format for one row and then cpy and paste it thoughout the sheet where needed.
