Cell Number Format Based On Another Cells Value

Oct 21, 2007

If Cell A1 in my spreadsheet is 1, then cell A2 should appear formatted as a percentage. So if a user enters 9000 into cell A2, it should appear as 9000%. If Cell A1 in my spreadsheet is 2, then cell A2 should appear as a comma-formatted whole number. So if a user enters 9000 into cell A2, it should appear as 9,000. Conditional formatting doesn't appear to let me do this.

Conditional Format X Number Of Cells Based On A Single Cell?

May 4, 2014

I am looking for a method to conditionally format a variable number of cells below a single cell into which data is entered.

For example ABC = 6, DEF = 12. Therefore, if I enter ABC into D1 then D1:D6 should be conditionally formatted.

Number Format Based On Corresponding Cells Text

May 15, 2008

Cell L90 to L120 are input cells where I type " Percentage" or "Dollar Amount". I need the five cells to the right of each input cell starting two cells over, to be formatted accordingly. I read a thread similar to what I'm asking for suggesting a worksheet change macro, but I can't quite figure it out for a range of cells. Also, in case I need to add a row to my sheet before all of these cells, how can I make sure that this will still work without having to go into the code. Is this an activecell thing?

Format Cell Number Based On Value

Feb 19, 2008

I need to evaluate some offers and for the management I need to follow some strict rules like:

1. 1.000.000 instead of 1000000. But that's not the problem
2. to use maximum 3 digits... Example: 10,2 or 6.12

I tried with an if function and then round, but I think that's not right way. If number < 10, then round with 2 decimal places else, round with 1 decimal place

Evaluate Cell Based On Number Format VBA

Nov 2, 2011

I'm trying to insert a random number into the unprotected cells on a worksheet depending on the type of number formatting in the cell. There are 4 basic cases:

Number formatted as percentNumber Formated general with no decimal placesNumber formatted general with two decimal placesNumber formatted in thousands

The code below only contains three criteria, I was trying to get that to work first....Based on this criteria I want to insert a random number of an appropriate size. Please find the vba below.

Sum randomnbr()
Dim F as String

For Each c In ActiveSheet.Range("A1:AK2500")
F = c.numberformat
If c.Locked = False And IsNumeric(c.Value) = True And c.EntireRow.Hidden = False And c.EntireColumn.Hidden = False Then
If F Like "*#,##0*" Then
c.Value = Round(Rnd, 0) * 1000000
If F Like "*%*" Then
c.Value = Round(Rnd, 2)
Else: c.Value = Round(Rnd, 2) * 1000
End If

Conditionally Change Number Format Based On Another Cell's Value

Dec 1, 2009

Format the number in Column AL to '[hh]:mm' when Column C's value is ="P/T", otherwise format to 'General'

Column C's value is referenced from another sheet in the same workbook via a VLOOKUP function.

Column AL's value is based on an IF formula which goes like this:
=IF($C4="F/T",SUM($AJ4)+($AK4/2),SUM($D4:$AH4))

Basically the above formula asks if Column C's value is F/T then count (because if F/T then the corresponding values in that row are whole numbers). If not, then SUM (because if P/T the corresponding values in that row are set to [hh]:mm format).

I have another sheet in the same workbook which has code (quoted below) which does something similar but I don't understand it enough to get it doing what I want for the sheet in question.

Conditional Number Format Based On The Value Of A Specific Cell

May 9, 2009

I have a large spreadsheet which includes many rows whose number format needs to change depending on the value of a specific cell.

So for example:

If cell B20 has value "A", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 1,234
If cell B20 has value "B", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 5.6%
If cell B20 has value "C", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 7.89
Etc...

As conditional formatting does not seem to include a number format option I've worked out that I need some sort of macro to change these settings for me, either automatically whenever the value of B20 changes or, more likely, when I manually choose to run the macro.

Format Row Cell Color Based On Number Of Text Strings In A Column

I have been trying to format the rows on this sheet to color scale red based on the number of repeat text strings in Column E. Referring to the attached example sheet, '321/312.2/321.3' appears the most times and the goal is to color code the rows it appears in the deepest shade of red, then the next highest occurring string would shade the rows it appears in a lighter shade, etc, in descending order. Our team currently does this across multiple sheets manually everyday and it would be a real time saver if we could get excel to do this automatically.

Format Color For Range Of Cells Based On Cell Value

Jul 1, 2008

I have been tasked with creating a Macro in order to help speed up a rather simple set of steps that are taken to format a spreadsheet each day. The last step, however, is not so simple. I would like to add a statement to the macro code that does that following:

Based on the value of a specific cell, color the cell and all corresponding cells within the same row (from colums A to AA) yellow. Essentially, cells in column D may have a the value "No Allocation", and if they do, I will need to format that cell yellow as well as all the cells within the same row for the colume range A to AA.

Format Cell Color Based On Others Cells Not Being Blank

Jan 9, 2008

I know that I need to use Conditional Formatting, but I can't get the formula code correct.

This is what I need it to do:

If cell A2 is populated (not blank) AND cell B2 is blank, then cell B2 to be highlighted in bright red fill.

If cell A2 is populated (not blank) and cell B2 is also populated (not blank), then leave formatting as per normal

If cell A2 is blank then leave formatting as per normal

Basically, as soon as someone types anything into cell A2, cell B2 to turn red. Then once they have input something into cell B2, the red highlight can disappear. The inputs will be text, not numbers, so I can't use </>

I have tried varying circumstances of IFs, ANDs, NOTs, ISBLANKs etc and I can't crack

I would like to format the color of cell A1 on Sheet 1 based on true or false values from cell range A1:A10 on sheet 2. For instance:

1. If all cells on sheet 2 in range A1:A10 were false then cell A1 on sheet 1 would be red.

2. If some cells on sheet 2 in the range A1:A10 were false and some were true then cell A1 on sheet 1 would be yellow.

3. If all cells on sheet 2 in range A1:A10 were true then cell A1 on sheet 1 would be green.

Copy And Paste Range Of Cells Based On Number Of Cell Values In Column A

Mar 17, 2014

Please see attached sample worksheet. Column A will be generated by the user manually.

I'm looking for a way in VBA to have A1:D20 in Sheet2 copied and pasted in the "Bank Reconciliation" Sheet based on how many "Markets" there are in Column A. Then, once that's complete to have A22:D30 (the smaller box in Sheet2) copied and pasted directly below those results.

I have what the macro would hopefully generate to the right in "Bank Reconciliation" (B6:E54) as an example. So if there's a market in A1, copy and paste the box to B6. If there's a market in A2, copy and paste the box directly below the first (B26) etc. etc. until it's done, then paste the smaller box directly below whatever the macro generates.

My problem is, is that I don't know who to refer to "a whole number" in Excel formula language.

Cannot Change Cells Number Format

Jan 10, 2008

I cannot change the number format in a single sheet of my spreadsheet. I can go to format cells and select colour etc but it will not change the number format.

Another issue on the same sheet is that linked cells i.e cell b3 formula "=A3" displays "=A3" not the actual value in A3. Again, i cannot change the number format of this cell and yes, auto calc is on.

Whilst not wanting to offer a partial explaination (per the rules) just before this happened i was pressing a combitation of Shift+Control+` - not sure if that is relevant.

I want to get the sheet back to its 'normal' working order.

Scale A Number Using Format Cells Custom?

Aug 6, 2009

I have a number in a cell of 1025132.36. I need to scale it down to this number with this formatting: 1,025.13 (Two decimal places with comma separaters)

Basically it is dividing it by 1000 or scaling it by 3 (move the decimal place to the left three places). I cannot use /1000 in the cell and I cannot reference it to/from another cell. I must use something under Format/Cell. I was trying to create a custom format.

I saw in another forum thread to use #.###. This does the scaling but then I cant make the number viewed with only two decimal places. Also when I tried to add comma separators for thousands it put a comma right before the decimal.

Format Cells Based On Values In Pivot Table

Dec 23, 2009

I have a pivot table and next to it I added some calculations which are based on data from the table. In my "real" file, the cells next to the PT are formatted with conditional formatting based on other values in the sheet (see attached sample file). What I now need to do is add borders to the cells in columns D:G only if the cells in B5 and downwards are not empty. I have tried doing it with conditional formatting but there are some other rules which contradict this setting.

The idea is to make the cells in columns D:G look like they are a natural extension on the PT. However, the table can grow or shrink (in length) and I want to see borders only around cells that are on the same rows as the data in column B (staring with B5). I think that whatever solution you can provide (if you can...) should be based a workbook_change event, because in my real file, the length of the table is changed whenever I select a different page of the PT.

Change Format Of Cell Into Number?

Dec 15, 2013

I am having slight trouble with the formatting of some cells. Every month I will be copying data into a row, the problem is Excel thinks it's a date instead of an integer of some sort.

The value copied will look something like this:
79:42:00
(meaning 79 hours and 42 minutes)

Excel is taking that and interpreting it as:
1/3/1900 7:42:00 AM

Is there an easy way to format this so Excel thinks it's a number (even if 79.7).

I tried to change the format of the cell to "Text", but it changes it to: 3.32083333333333

Changing Cell Number Format With VBA

Jul 27, 2012

I believe Range.Numbeformat is the property.

I have a cell with a dropdown picker. If the user chooses "Distractor" from the picker, Worksheet_Change triggers an Inputbox to open, asking what kind of distractor it is. We'll use "Gloves" for this example.

I want the cell to display "Distractor - Gloves" while keeping the actual value as "Distractor"

The following is not working for me:

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim DistractorText As String
Select Case Target.Address
Case "$B$23"
If Target.Value = "Distractor" Then
DistractorText = InputBox("Type of Distractor:")
Target.NumberFormat = "@" & " - " & DistractorText

There's more code, but I copy-pasted the trouble area. The last line using the NumberFormat property is giving me trouble.
