Cell Colors Not Formatting

May 23, 2009

I have read the instructions for conditional formatting and I don't think that is what I need. I have 10 diff year 2005,06,07 etc. I want each cell with with a diff year to turn a diff color. Like I want 2005 to be red and 2008 to be blue.

Formatting Cell Colors With Multiple Conditions

Oct 29, 2008

so what will happen is that the number of rows will continuously increase as the groups of data (Labeled Group #) increases. The data within each group will vary from time to time so some groups may contain only one line while others may contain multiple lines. I have included an attachment that illustrates what I'm trying to achieve. When data is entered in Column A under "Q," the adjacent empty cells in Columns B-F (labeled "R"-"V") will turn red. This is the part I have (i.e. Group 2).

Changing Cells Colors In Relation To Cell Input - NOT Conditional Formatting Ques

Mar 22, 2008

I'm a average excel user, i know my way around it and kow common and basic formulee, VB isnt a strong point, but i am willing to attemp anything for this, let me explain

Lets say in colum A I have a list of items, in colum B i have a check box, currently the check box is red, if i tpye a x it turns green due to conditional formating. That works fine...onto the problem...

Lets say in colum A i have my items but they are repeated...eg A1, A145, A166, A122 are all the same item, what i want is regardless of where i place the x each check box under coloum B either gets a X and turns green, or just turns green, i dont mind...

I dont think conditional formatting can cut this, though i may be wrong. Ive tried to use the IF function under condtional formatting but ran into problems...

Conditional Formatting :: Change Colors As Per Dates

Oct 23, 2009

Iím sure conditional formatting is the way forward with this but canít quite get the formula right. I need 2 columns: Column A will have dates that an event happened on. Column B will be blank until we have received back in a letter that went out on the date in column A. At which point the date the letter was received back in will be entered into column B

What I need is for the Colour of Column B to change from green (before and on the date of Column A) to Amber (for the next 3 days) and then red (from Day 5 onwards. This would be until a date was entered in column B (the date the letter is received back in) at which point it would just go back to white. This would keep a check on how long the letter was out for and whether we need to chase it up or not and with an increasing urgency.

Excel 2010 :: Counting Cells With Interior Colors Set Via Conditional Formatting

Jan 3, 2014

How to sort out a way to count cells whose fill colors have been set via conditional formatting.

I'm sure that I was once able to use Chip Pearson's CountOfCF function back in the days of Excel 2003, as it worked around the 3 condition limit and used .ColorIndex which assumed that you'd only ever be formatting using the .ColorIndex values of 1 to 56, but I can't seem to be able to get it to work in 2010.

Excel Pallet Lost Colors (hovering Displays Colors But Visual Clues Are Not Shown)

Jul 7, 2013

My pallet lost color-coding - if I hover over each little scare it displays the names for the colors and if I click on them they color the cells with the right colors, but the palette itself lost the visual display of colors except for 8 colors: black, blue, red, magenta, yellow, cyan, and white.

I use color-coding of cells a lot and I find it difficult to work without visual clues. At least the hover-support allows me to get the work done, but with difficulty.

Workaround For Public Variable Bug: Creates Different Cell Colors Based Upon The Cell Contents

Oct 15, 2008

I am in the process of reformatting an excel workbook to act as a review tool for different factors in a process. Part of my redesign includes the use of coding that creates different cell colors based upon the cell contents. The new workbooks will be used to handle existing data for this year. I have developed a process macro to open an existing workbook and copy and transfer the original data worksheet into the newly formatted workbook. The data gets transferred to the new worksheet and the resulting workbook is renamed and saved, Heres'' the rub... the newly saved workbook is missing all of the coding for the worksheets... apparently this is a MS bug.

Has anyone figured a workaround for this. One thought I had is to open both( new and old )workbooks and rather than move/copy , i would transfer the data using cell references.

VBA To Change Cell Colors?

Jun 25, 2013

I'm trying to update a workbook with a new look and want to change the cell color based upon what the cell color currently is.

I'm having problems with the code that I created. I just can't seem to get the syntax correct for the code.

For the code below, my Range of A5:D5 is just a test range where each cell should change colors. When completed, my range will be much greater.

Code:
Sub ChangeColors()
Dim Cell As Range
For Each Cell In Range("A5:D5")

Changing Cell Colors With Vba

Mar 17, 2007

I'm trying to have change if the date on it is passed "now()". I am already using the 3 conditional formatting fields and need this one and another one. Here are 2 problems I seem to be having.

First - the code below only works if I change the date on the cell. I want code to either work with Worksheet Active or any other way so the user does not have to redo the dateís everyday.
Second - a record might have conditional formatting already. Is it possible for the target cell in this code can show this color while the rest of the row shows the color of the conditional formatting?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("G1:G2000")) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Target
Case Is <= Now()
icolor = 39

End Select

Target.Interior.ColorIndex = icolor
End If

End Sub

Changing Colors In Specific Cell When Conditions Met In Another Cell

Apr 22, 2014

I need to change the color of a specific cell when conditions are met in a different cell and it seems like it may be beyond the scope of simply applying conditional formatting. What vba code would look like in proper syntax to make the following statement true. IF cell value Q4 is >=cell value S4 AND cell value R4 is <100 Then cell Q4 turns red and IF cell value Q4 is >= cell value S4 AND cell value R4 =100 then cell Q4 turns green. it may also be useful to know that the "cell values" in this example will be dates and not straight values. this may be possible to do using conditional formatting, but i cannot find a formula that works.

Macro To Detect Cell Colors

Sep 8, 2009

We have a workbook with over 20 worksheets, each sheet with one or more tables in it. Several people use the workbook and we have decided that when someone changes a cell, they should mark the changed cell by filling it with blue using Format Cell. We have then nominated one person at end of each week who will check all the changes made during the week and either approve or reject them. So her task is to find all the blue cells, check them and then take the shading off.

What I would like to do is to create a macro to help her. I would like the macro to automatically identify all the blue cells in the workbook and give her a list of these cells. I wonder if someone could give me direction on a couple of things:

1) The command in the macro that would return whether a cell is shaded blue

2) The way in which I could cycle through all the content of each worksheet. I'm thinking worse case I would have to write instructions to go to each sheet, and then do an outer loop to go through each row, and an inner loop for each column (and the number of active cells varies by worksheet) -

Print Data Without Any Cell Colors

Oct 17, 2006

Within the Workbook events there is a "Before_Print", however I also need something like "After_Print" which does not exist (as far as I can tell).

I have several rows of data which alternate colors. When I print it I want to take out the fill (so as to save ink) - which I can do in the "Before_Print" event. [No problem.] However, once it is done printing I need to restore the alternating colors, but I cannot think of any event or trigger which would enable this.

I have thought through several things and the closest thing I can think of is setting up a timer. But there is of course no way to now how long to set it for. [Before/After Save also has the same "issue".]

Automatically Remove Cell Colors

Oct 30, 2006

i am using a set of VB codes that was kindly provided by "dr". Please refer to the link below.

Highlight-Select Start Date To End Date

However, I am facing problems on how to delete or unfill the cells that are "coloured and filled with booking reference name" (i.e. being booked by the user).

In another words, currently, once a booking is made, the blank slots would be coloured to red and would reflect the customer name in those slots (with the use of dr's VB codes).

Comes the next day, if that booking needs to be cancelled, would the user be able to "delete" that booking that was made (i.e. uncolour that slot plus remove the customer name) without having to automatically go unfill the cells and delete the text in the cells?

Synchronize Cell Colors Between 2 Tables

Filter By Consecutive Cell Values Or Colors

Jul 25, 2013

I was wondering if it would be possible to filter by two consecutive cell values or colors. For example if I have in "A"

X1 (red fill)
X2 (blue fill)
X1 (red fill)
X3 (xx fill)
X3 (xx fill)
X1 (red fill)
X2 (blue fill)
X4 (aa fill)

I want to be able to filter so that the consecutive cells for x1 and x2 show up or red followed by blue.
So when I filter it will only show rows 1 & 2 and 6 & 7.
X1
X2

and there would be many of these values in the spreadsheet.

Change The Row Colors Contigent Upon Cell Values

Jun 19, 2009

I know this can be done, as I have seen it before, but can't seem to figure out how to replicate it.

I have a speadsheet in which I have a drop-down box for a certain column's values. How do I automatically have each independent row's background color change dependant upon the value selected in that row's drop-down cell box (and update color automatically if a different drop-down selection is made later)?

For example:

Row 1: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "Yes"...change row color to GREEN
Row 2: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "No"...change row color to RED
Row 3: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "Maybe"...change row color to YELLOW
