# Can I Make A Formula That Will Highlight A Cell

Sep 1, 2009
I have a large spreadsheet with many pieces of equipment in it. There are a few piece that I would like to highlight should thier computer license go out of date, or even better 30 days prior. I have a Feild with the Expire dates but it is at the end of the spreadsheet not in plain sight. Is there a way to make my Equipment description column highlight when the date in the other column reaches the current date (or 30 Days before). I have cut and pasted the part of the spreadsheet into a new file to make it easier to read and hid all the none important feilds.

I don't know if this can be done but I will ask you guys anyway

On the attached, you will see what I want to happen

If a user enters text into row "T" that contains "QIN" can conditional formatting highlight the cell in row N a solid colour if no numbers have been entered? As a reminder to users..

I have attached a file which shows some cells which start with "p" and then a number and some have the same but with the word " total" in them.

I would like to run a formula in the column next to it which will highlight which cells have that word in order that I can data sort a large file and delete the totals.

I think it will be an IF formula on cells that contain criteria.

I am looking for a formula that will work with my current formula, and check that cells a1 and b1 contains information. If they do contain info then the original formula should carry on as usual and leave the answer in cell c1. I also need it so when no information has been entered in cells A1 and B1, C1 will be blank instead of containing a zero.

This is the formula I have at the moment:

=IF(SUM(A1=0,B1>0),B1-A1,"No Charge?")

A B C

10.1810.82

I have on my Sheet named "Data" in Cell K4

=CONCATENATE(L16,O25,L18,O25,K20,S25,N22)

The values of that cell become a formula.

I try to make a macro that pastes 'Data'!K4 into 'Data'!L3 and then have that formula functioning in cell 'Sheet1'!A31.

The problem is when I try to make a macro to do this it will always paste the values that were recorded during the macro rather than the unique formula that is created via cell 'Data'!K4 at the time.

Is there any way to have A31 actively using the values that are created with 'Data'!K4? at all times?

I've been asked to assist with modifications of an excel spreadsheet. One of the features is a column that has a formula of what the total order should be. For example, 1 base order of 25.00, plus 1 bonus order of 18.00, plus 2 bonus orders of 15.00 would be $73.00 due. Then data entry persons enter the actual amount collected. Is there a way to highlight either the cell or the result if the amount collected does not equal the amount due? I know I can accomplish this with another column, but they want to keep the columns to a minimum.

This is for a non-profit agency and the orders are now at 1000 that must be entered within a day or two period, so they want to keep the fields to a minimum so as to make the entry easier for those doing the input. And they would like the data entry person to see an immediate flag if what he or she enters as collected does not equal what is due.

I am looking for a solution which will highlight a cell if it has changed as a result of another cell changing (i.e. formula recalculate).

i.e.

A B C

3 2 (a*b)

I want cell c1 to be highlighted if either a1 or b1 are changed manually.

I want my formula to output a blank cell if the answer is 0. Ex. [B1=IF(A1=0, ???, A1)]. I want B1 = A1 if A1 is not 0. I want B1 to output a blank cell if A1 = 0.

I have a formula that looks like this : ='G:STOCKS[1001 Stock.xls]Matl%'!$I$32

There are hundreds of similar formulas, all referencing different cells in the same file. The “1001” bit refers to the date, and next month it will need to say “1002” to pick up the new month's file. I would like to hold the “1002” bit in a cell (say A1), so that at month end, I just change that one cell, and all the formulas will point to the new file, but I’m not sure how to work that into the formula.

I have a file where the cells are all formulas.

Employees are able to key in a number instead of using the number derived from the formula.

I want the cell to use conditional formatting without the use of macros, so it will highlight yellow if the cell is keyed in instead of a formula.

Is this possible? I have tried numerous things, but none seem to work.

Example:

Cell A6 has the number 24,248 derived from a formula.

Employee thinks the number should be 30,000 and keys that number in.

If it is 24,248, I want the number to have no fill, but if it is a keyed in number, I want it to be highlighted.

How would you write a formula where the sum depends on what dates you enter in A1 and B1?

Date cells C1 to C365

A1 start date

B1 end date

Example:

A1 = 1/1/14

B1 = 1/31/14

So cells C1 to C31 will be added.

"=sum(c1:offset(c1,(b1-a1),0))

This formula works, except if you enter a different starting dates, it just counts from c1.

I'm creating a "universal-fluctuating" vendor inventory return worksheet for a auto parts store that consist of one criteria (cores, warranties, or N/R ) and will return one or two results of core cost and/or unit cost. This part of the task I have accomplished by using a drop down list for my criteria and my results will appear in two different columns using a Vlookup table. The problem is due to inventory fluctuating from cores and waranties on a month by month basis, vendor requiremnts differ for the number of units returned, and last make the boss happy on ink and papers supplies :D I was wondering if it is possible loop my code in a given column where it will move my code to the next row untill I reach a grand total?

I am using excel 2003 and I am looking for a formula that will highlight duplicate cells and change the cell to red.

Unlike newer versions that have duplicate cells within the formatting tool, appears that 03 doesnt.

Also I am looking for a formula that will highlight blue a date cell when the date arrives.

I've got a table of different values in column A.

I'd like the cell D2 ("order") to show up at column B next to the closest value of 35.00 of column A.

Consequently, how to make "order" meet the closest several value of 35.00?

I've attached a xlxs file with more detailed description.

i have a formula that will return both negative and positive numbers. If it's negative it obviously shows a "-" sign. How do I force it to display a "+" if the result is positive?

I'm working, on and off, at developing an order/invoice system using excel.

The orders are being summed and, providing the data is entered correctly , all is well.

I'm sure you can tell from the that the old human error element is creeping in. Therefore, on occasion, users will have to overtype the formula to correct the errors... this will be able to be resolved the following month when the order is corrected.. but...

:?: Question - what is the least resource hungry way of formatting ( italics, shading .. whatever ) a range of columns so that those cells that have been overtyped are shown.. to ensure users know its been done and can remove and return to formula next month.

If i wanted to tack on something to the end of a formula so that it would make every 50 add 1 (example: 200 would convert to 204, because 200 divided by 50 is 4).

Normally when you double-click on a formula you see its component cells highlighted.

But when I do this with a formula that uses cells from different worksheets NO cells are highlighted.

I wonder if anyone knows how to get the highlighting working for such formulas. Or is there an add-on which enables this?

I'm currently using this formula to show the last date of a entry ie A15, on a 2 different worksheets, the forst worksheet always has a A15 entry and the 2nd worksheet currentmonth! sometimes has and entry.

=MAX(LOOKUP(99^99,currentmonth!A:A/(currentmonth!B:B=A15),currentmonth!A:A),LOOKUP(99^99,mainlogbook!A:A/(mainlogbook!B:B=A15),mainlogbook!A:A))

and if I don't have and entry in this section of the formula (LOOKUP(99^99,currentmonth!A:A/(currentmonth!B:B=A15) which sometimes I don't.

It yields a #N/A Error.

Is there a way to make this formula work if there is no entry of A15 on the currentmonth! worksheet?

It is an example of a list of menu items that I need to put a tick next to whichever item (instead of a 1) in order for the cost of the item to appear in the B column of the Menu Costing Combination sheet. Without the tick the amount does not appear.

How do I go about putting the tick mark in the cell instead of having to put a 1? Of course, the formula in column B will have to be changed in order to replace the number 1.

I need to be able to enter text in a box, and from that box the formula looks at the text to see if it is in within strings of text in any other box in the entire spreadsheet. If the text is there, the box needs to turn green (or any color). If not, it stays the same. The catch is I need the formula to be in a separate box, and the Entered text will be in a blank cell, so the user (who is excel illiterate) will not be confused by the odd formula.

Example:

B1, B2, C2, D4, and D6 will have the items: XXX, YYY, ZZZ

B3 and B4 will have only: YYY

In the "search box" the user will enter XXX

B1, B2, C2, D4, and D6 turn green, while B3 and B4 stay as normal.

If they enter YYY in the search box, all of them turn green.

If I have different equations in various cells without an = sign (text only) how do I make the cells into formulas without using the formula bar?

e.g Cell B1 has text in it A1+A2+A3 and we need cell B2 to be =A1+A2+A3

I have a DDE code that returns a stock symbol value. The code is as follows, where @ES# is the symbol:

=NeoTicker|q!'@ES#,last'

I am trying to create a cell so when I put in a symbol (H10), it automatically gives me the quote. So I split up the code and then concatenated it as follows:

G10: '=NeoTicker|q!'

H10: '@ES#
