# Cell Formatting - Red Text If Cell Matches Certain Condition Based On Another Cell

Sep 24, 2013

I have one column that contains a monetary amount (column AQ) , and another that contains text reading either "inflows" or "outflows" (column AC)

When AC says "inflows", AQ should be positive, and when AC says "Outflows", AQ should be negative.

I need the text in column AQ (the monetary amount) to become red when the the opposite is true.

i.e. When AQ is negative and AC says "Inflows", AQ should become red. And when AQ is positive and AC says "Outflows", AQ should become red.

## If Text Of Cell In Range Matches Text Of Cell In Column - Match Formatting

Jul 5, 2012

Trying to create a button that, once clicked performs the following task:

Checks whether the text in a cell in the column X2:X40 matches the text in a cell in the Range A2:U14.

If it does, the formatting of the cell in X2:X40 (eg background) must change to match that of the corresponding cell in A2:U14.

Only 1 cell in the range will match 1 cell in the column

For example:
Before click:
Cell A9 has "John" written in it and a yellow background
Cell X4 has "John" written in it and a clear background

During click:
matches these cells
changes X4 so that it also has a yellow background

After click:
Cell A9 has "John" written in it and a yellow background
Cell X4 has "John" written in it and a yellow background

## Color Table Rows Where Specific Cell In Row Matches Condition

Jul 2, 2008

I have a selection on a worksheet that has 4 consistent columns (A, B, C, and D) each with a variable number of rows all containing string type data. With this data I want to use Conditional Formatting so that when I have a string value of X in column D for any row, that whole row with the X in column D has it's color change to say grey, this should happen regardless of what strings are in Columns A, B, or C.

Below is the way I've been trying to do this thus far and failing, when I run this code below I can only get it to grey out the cell with the X not the whole row.

Selection.FormatConditions.Delete
Formula1:="=""x"""
Selection.FormatConditions(1) . Interior.ColorIndex = 16

## Conditional Formatting Based On Text In Adjacent Cell?

Feb 16, 2014

A2:A5 contains different dollar amounts, a6 is the sum of those amounts

In column B (B2:B5), i place a "p" beside the amount in column A once it has been paid.

I want to:

a. conditionally format the amounts in column a to turn green once I put the 'p' in the adjacent column

b. conditionally format the sum in A6 to exclude amounts that have been paid, and only display the total amount of the unpaid lines.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Color Or Text Of Another Cell

Jun 14, 2013

1 2 3 4 5 6
1
2 x x x x
3 x x
4 x x
5 x x
6 x x

Assume that is the table i have. In row 1 i need conditional formatting such that if any of the columns contain an x the first row should be color coded. In my above example every column in row 1 will be color coded expect for row 1 column 6 since there are no x's for any any row in column 6.

How can i do this in excel.Also instead of x's if i have manually entered color can we do the same ?

## Changing Cell Text Color WITHOUT Using Conditional Formatting Based On Finding Keywords

May 29, 2012

I have a spreadsheet that uses VB macros to calculate sums of cells based on the font color of the numbers inside. It used to be fairly easy going through each cell and "classifying" them by color, so that my macros can go ahead and sum the numbers in each respective color's cell... but now I have a huge amount of numbers and would like to automate the process somewhat. Here's an example using the A and B columns:

flight \$400
hotel \$150
hotel \$130
meal \$20
meal \$15
flight \$350

I tried using conditional formatting to automatically change the color of the adjacent cells based on the presence of a keyword such as "flight" or "hotel", but this change is only cosmetic, and doesn't actually change the font color (it is still the default black, hence why my color-summing macros won't work!).

I'm including a sample macro for what I use to color-sum my cells, but what I am looking to automate the color-coding process based on looking for keywords as explained above in my example. Here is one of the working color-summing macros (for red, in this case) if you'd like to use it as a reference:

Function SumRed(SelectedCells As Range)
' Adds the values of the cells where the font colour is red(3).
Dim Cell As Object
Dim x As Double

## Conditional Formatting - Change Value Font Color In Cell Based On Matching Text?

Jun 26, 2013

Via conditional formatting, I am searching to change the color of a specific word in a cell (not the color of everything in the cell, but only that specific word - and the word repeats in the cell). A function such as =isnumber(search("NOK";A1)) colors all the cell values, which I do not want to do. How i can perform this task?

## Conditional Formatting - Change Cell Color Based On Date In Another Cell

Oct 9, 2013

I have two columns. In column B is the date of "last check". I column A is the date of "next check". I would like to have cell A2 in yellow color 334 days after the date entered in cell A3 and than in red color 365 days after the date entered in cell A3. Same thing for cell B2 related to date entered in cell B3. Yellow color in cells announces that check will expire within 30 days and red color that check has been expired.

## Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting And Adding Text To Cell Based On Multiple Cells

May 31, 2013

I'm using Excel 2007. I would prefer to stay away from the scripting side of the house if possible. This is basically a 3 day forcast weather chart. The top is the actual weather data, the bottom portion is a color coded reflection of how the weather affects various things.

This product is created in excel, but will be embedded into a powerpoint. It will be updated daily. Here is what I would like. I want the color chart at the bottom to update automatically based on the data I enter above. I have a grasp that I can update the color through conditional formatting, although im not exactly sure what that will look like with all of those cells.

I also figured out that I can insert the letters in those lower cells with something similar to " =IF(C6>90, "T", "") " which would put in a 'T' for Temperature when the temperature got above a certain degree.

I run into a problem when I have multiple factors affecting a single cell. For instance on the example in day 2 of my image. Personnel are affected by Temperate AND UV Index. How would I set up that cell to pull that information from both of those cells and display it accordingly? I would prefer the letters to stay separated by the comma, but I could live without that. The default cell color will be green, with the potential to be yellow or red. I left a few examples of possible situations on day 2 and 3.

## Condition Formatting - Viewing CF Formula At Each Cell

Jan 6, 2010

I'm referring to a post I tried to solve:http://www.excelforum.com/excel-gene...ml#post2227328

Steps done:
Select Column D
CF function =D1<A1
Select Column A
CF function =A1<D1

If I select cell D3 and look at the CF then I see:
CF: =D1<A1
where I would like to see
CF: =D3<A3

I remember this was the case in <=XL 2003? (now using 2010 beta)

## Delete Row If Cell Text Matches Known String

May 21, 2008

I have an excel file, and on some rows, the "B" column contains the text " Total:" (it does have a leading space). I would like to loop through the first 200 rows (maximum length of the file) and delete all the rows that contain " Total:" in column "B". I have tried:

For i = 1 To 200
range("B" & i).activate
If range("B" & i).value = " Total:" Then
rows(activecell.row).select
selection.delete shift:=xlUp
End If
Next i

When I step through that code, it just skips over the IF function as if B1 does not equal " Witness:"

## Cell Formatting Based On The Format Of Another Cell.

Jun 6, 2006

Is there a way to build a drop down into a chart so that the user can select which items they want to view on a chart? Attached is a sample file below. Just wondering if there is a way to allow users to select to view all items in the chart or to select just a few at a time to compare and contrast.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Cell & Corresponding Cell

Jan 12, 2008

1. A1 needs to turn red if a value greater than \$2,000 is inserted.
2. A1 will turn back to white if either "John Doe" or "Jane Doe" is inserted in B1.
3. If no value is inserted in A1, A1 needs to remain white.
4. I'll need to do the same for A2-B2, and so on.

That's it. I tried this in C1: =IF(AND(A1>2000,B1="JANE DOE"),1,IF(AND(A1>2000,B1="JOHN DOE"),1,0)).

I then used Conditional Formatting in A1 to point to C1 and turn the red in A1 off or on based on the result. Hey, it worked! Problem is, A1 needs to stay white until a value is entered, and no value entered returns 0 (red), which oddly enough is exactly what I'm telling it to do. Surprise! How do I get A1 to default to white until a value is entered in A1?

## Detect Cell Conditional Formatting State Of Specific Condition

Nov 26, 2009

Is it possible to check the conditional state for a specific condition for a specific cell.
For example a cell has 1 or more conditions.

A condition will toggle to a condition if true or false etc.
The specifics is i use red (color 255) if a cell has not met a specific condition (of 1 or more conditions)
So if the cell is mandatory to be populated, and is blank, it will be red, if not it will be something else.

But i want to loop all visible cells with conditional formatting, and where the cell has a condition when true will show interior color = to 255 return the cell address.
To msg the user where data entry is still required etc.

## Macro To Jump To Cell That Matches Text Selected From A Dropdown List?

Mar 24, 2014

I'm looking for a macro to jump to and select a cell if it matches the text in another cell based on a drop down list. So I have a drop down list in cell c57 and a form control search button right next to it. I want the user to be able to select from the drop down, click search and then jump to the cell that matches what they selected. I would like the macro to search from B:60 - B629.

## Conditional Or VLookup (Gives True Or False If Text In A Cell Matches Any Cells In A Range)?

Jan 14, 2009

I need to create a formula that will give me True or False if text in a cell matches any cells in a range.

For example:

Column A and B have text:

Account
Date
Name
Species

Column C has other and sometimes matching text:
Name
Deal

What formula would I use to find out if all cells in Columns A and B are represented in Column C?

## Macro That Will Clear Contents Of Cell Based On Format Of Text In Adjacent Cell

Feb 18, 2009

Been racking brain, searching through the forum here, and my Excel 2003 Bible all day trying to figure out this problem to no avail. I would like to clear the contents of any cell in a given range if the cell immediately to the right of is formatted as bold.

## Excel 2013 :: Change Text In Cell Based On Date In Another Cell

Apr 14, 2014

I have the the following spreadsheet: [URL] My formula in Columns A to E is the following:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(Query1_2[@Branch],Master!A:J,10,FALSE)),"Branch Not Open",VLOOKUP(Query1_2[@Branch],Master!A:J,10,FALSE))

I would like to do the following in Column A: If the date in Column C is greater than today, then Column A must also say "Branch Not Open". I have tried the following:

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(Query1_2[@Branch],Master!A:J,10,FALSE)),"Branch Not Open",VLOOKUP(Query1_2[@Branch],Master!A:J,10,FALSE)),IF(C:C<=TODAY,"Branch Not Open, IF(AND(C:C=>TODAY,VLOOKUP(Query1_2[@Branch],Master!A:I,9,FALSE)))

But Excel does not like the formula at all.

## Find Last Cell In Range, And Changing Another Cell Based On Offset Text

May 4, 2009

If i have a range say E12:O12 and want to find the last cell before blank, lets say it finds m12 as the cell with the value before blank. then with m12 it needs to determine weather row 11 in the same column has Text either "S" or "F" if "S" then m12 = t if "F" then m12 offset(1,-1) = t. And just to make things more difficult i need the range E12:O12 to step 2 as well until it gets to E208:O208 .Noting that row 11 never changes and will always have either an "S" Or an "F"

and also t = time()

## Using '=A1' To Get Cell Text, And Using The Formatting FROM Cell A1 [] Almost

Feb 12, 2010

Its been a while since Ive been on here, and again I am rusty ... I hate to ask a stupid question but after searching I realized I didn't know what I was searching for :-)

When you use the code in a cell " =A1 " for example, the text of A1 is copied to the new cell. HOWEVER, the original text formatting is lost.

An example would be: " This text on this line... " becomes
" This text on this line... " when using the ( =A1 ) code.

If you right click and copy/paste, you can select ' paste special , formatting and values ' and the original format is transferred.... But, can this be done with basic Excel functions ? (NO VBA will be on this project) ...

## Macro That Will Highlight Cell And Four Rows To Right Based On Text In Cell

Aug 6, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where if Cell A2 says "Deposit", Rows A2-E2 would be formatted with a Blue background.

I've tried conditional formatting, but I can't built it into a Macro (I can't make it run), and it only highlights the cell that has that value. I also tried having the spreadsheet filter down to only the values I want highlighted, then highlighting all cells and un-filtering the column- this didn't work either.

It would basically say :

If (any cell in Row A) has text = "Deposit" (it needs to be exact, it can't be "containing"), set cell with the word "Deposit" and 4 cells to the right as Blue (I'm not picky about the color).

## Go To First Cell In List That Matches Contents Of Active Cell

Feb 20, 2007

I am just learning to use VBA and this may be the most simple task ever, but I can't figure it out. I've searched for all of the keywords I can think of, but can't find a solution...

I have a list of names in a sheet. Other columns in this sheet contain data like amount charged, amount paid, etc. This sheet must be manually updated (because the other program won't export the information I need) periodically to ensure proper billing/payment application in the original software (all transactions are handled by other people that I don't trust).

I sort the list so that the all names that are the same (ie John Doe) are together.

A short example list looks like this:

Jeremy Apple
John Doe
John Doe
John Doe
Jimmy Kravitz
Jimmy Kravitz

In updating my sheet, I set up a macro that will input todays date in one of the columns for all occurences of that name (so, every row that contains John Doe in column B, column V will have todays date in it).

Currently, in order for my macro to work properly, I have to manually make the activecell the first occurrence of 'John Doe'. When I'm ready to update 'Jimmy Kravitz', I have to select the first occurrence of 'Jimmy Kravitz' and so on.

Here's my question - Is there a way to use a VBA macro to find the first occurrence of 'John Doe' (and automatically 'know' which name I am updating)? Basically, I need a macro that will take the information that is in the cell in column B in the active row, find the first row that has that same name, and make that cell (column B) the active cell...
