Change Cell Background Color Based On Multiple Conditions

Aug 6, 2008

My Excel skills are basic at best, with no knowledge of VBA other than finding the VB Editor. What I'm trying to do: Attached is the file I'm working with, to give you a better idea. When a name is selected in column B, the cells in the non corresponding columns E to N should have a black background color. For example, when you select Mike in column B, the cells in that row in columns I to N, named Dave and Dean, should become black. If you select the name Dave, columns E to H (Mike) and M to N (Dean) should become black. In addition, the background color of the non-black cells should change depending on the status.

OK : green
FAIL: red
N/A: orange
Exceptions: blue

The attached file shows a few possible results, manually entered.

Making A Cell Change Background Color Based On If Positive Or Negative Sum Total

Jul 3, 2006

I have excel sheet with colored cells.

Positive cash flow cells all have green background,
Negative cash flow cells, all have red background.

I calculate all the "sub- total" columns into one "total sum" cell. Based on this "total sum" I want the cell background to be red if the total sum is negative, or green if total sum is positive. How do I make the cell change to the proper background color based on whether it's a negative or postive total sum?

Get Conditional Formatting To Change The Cell Color Based On A Few Conditions?

Jul 19, 2013

I'm trying to get conditional formatting to change the cell color based on a few conditions.

I want the cells in column D to turn red if;

- The number in column B has a match in column A

- And the corresponding cell in column C is not blank

- And the corresponding cell in column D is blank

In the example below, cell D4 should be red

If there's a match (Column B to Column A) and;

- If cell in column C is not blank and cell in column D is not blank, do nothing.

If there's a match (Column B to Column A) and:

- If cell in column C is blank and cell in column D is blank, do nothing.

Here's the formula I attempted but didn't get it to work.

IF(AND(C2"",D2=""),MATCH(B2,$A$2:$A$15,0),IF((AND(C2"",D"")),"",""))

Change Background Color Of Cell When Data Has Been Changed?

Jul 10, 2012

I have 10 excel sheets that are filled with data some 20,000 each.

Some of the descriptions in that row need to be changed.

I wonder how I can create some kind of macro or formatting that will change the text color or the fill color as I make those changes automatically?

I can sort the list after that easy enough, pulling the color text or the fill color.

Modify Code To Change Cell Background Color

Nov 11, 2008

I have the code below set to change the background color based on certain conditions. What I need to do is change it so that if none of the conditions are met, it does not change the color at all. As it is written now, if anything is entered in a cell that has a background already set, but does not meet these conditions, the cell turns white.

Change Font Color Based On Conditions

Jan 27, 2007

I'm trying to get the font to turn red in column G if it is greater than or equal to column I, and get it to turn orange if it is between 80% of I and I. This is what I've got so far.

Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("G" & Target.Row) >= Range("I" & Target.Row) Then Range("G" & Target.Row).Font.ColorIndex = 3
If Range("G" & Target.Row) >= Range(("I" & Target.Row) * 0.8) Then Range("G" & Target.Row).Font.Color = 45
End Sub

Input Cell Value Based On Background Color?

Apr 2, 2012

I'm working on a sheet that gets filled in with background colors (red, light blue, and green) and I'm trying to come up with a way to automate the process of inputting the text in the red and blue fields (red always gets PROCESS and light blue always gets SHPD) but they end up in different locations in the same columns. is there a function or macro to make this happen? I have constructed a macro to compile the sheet from my online database as it is a live system.

MODELACTIONxxx1xxx2xxx3xxx4xxx5xxx6xxx7xxx8xxx9xxx10xxx11xxx12xxx13xxx14xxx15xxx16xxx17 This is a simplified version of what I'm working with, and i'm on Excel 2000

Background Color Of Cell Based On Colors In Column

Sep 28, 2013

I have a data base in which I classify cells in three colors (green, yellow, and red) on my own. I would like the first cell in each column to indicate if there is a red or yellow cell in it's column. Because red cells are more important then yellow cells, if there is a yellow and a red cell in the column, I would like the red to over ride the yellow and the first cell would indicate red.

So basically, if there is a red cell in the column, no matter what other colors there are, the first cell should show red. If there is only yellow or yellow and green cells, the first cell should show yellow. If there are only green cells or green cells and clear, the first cell should show clear.

Changing Cell Background Color In Another Sheet Based On Cell Value

Jun 13, 2013

I am working on a workbook with 200+ sheets and an index linking to each of the sheets. On the sheets there is a cell containing the results of calculations and I need the cell referencing the sheet in the index to change background colors depending if the calculations value is greater or less than 0. I currently have working code that also changes the tab color of each sheet depending on the value, but i am trying to add the index cell background change functionality into that. also, the index listings is subject to change. my working code is

VB:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("d34").Value < 0 Then
Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 3
ElseIf Range("D34").Value > 0 Then
Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 4
Else

[Code]...

and the code i am trying to get working is

VB:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngX As Range
Set myRange = Worksheets("Index").Range("A1:A500").Find(Range("C2").Text, lookat:=xlPart)
' the C2 is the reference the title that would be on the index
If Range("d40").Value < 0 Then

[Code]....

I keep getting the runtime error '1004: application-defined error or object-defined error the thing is, i ran the cell background changing code in a normal macro before integrating it in my other worksheet code first and it worked fine. I have a little code experience, though not much in vba and I am unsure what the issue is. if there is another better way to accomplish what I'm tring to do, that would also be fine.

Change Row Background Color Using VBA

Nov 19, 2012

Try to find a way to automatically change the color of a row, based in changing the name in column A.

I tried conditional formatting but the name (or dates) in column A are not the same (always other and other).

I failed to adapt any VBA CODE (found in GOOGLE) because column A varies a lot.

Change Background Color Of Every Second Row?

Jul 30, 2014

I have a given som (general) range where I would like a function to change the background color of every second row in a visual basic function.

One could of course just loop through it and use the mod function, but I think there has to be something quicker.

I know about conditional formatting, but it is something I need to use over and over again on Ranges that will differ in size so I would like it to be a function I can just run as part of a sub.

Change Matched Cells Background Color

Mar 7, 2014

Macro is not working .So the macro I am using is supposed to look back at all the months tab, match the Name from previous tabs and if they match change background color of the active sheet's cell to red.

Right now the macro is only able to lookup the name in the previous tab (i.e. For December it will only lookup November tab and not October-January).

e.g. (Candidate name is Jack King and he is in (october's tab, Column A Cell 2 )

I want this candidate name to turn red once I type his name in November/December tab.

I have pasted the code I am using below:

Macro To Change Background Color And Text Of Certain Cells On Mouseclick

Mar 15, 2013

creating a macro. I would like the background color of certain cells under column A (cells 12:25, 27:32, 34:38, 40:45, 47:51, 53:61, 63:70, 72:79, 81:88, 90:92) to change to the color green and display the text "Complete" on mouseclick.

Before the cell is clicked, it would be the color red, with no text. (I'm not sure if you need to know that).

Next, I would need a macro that resets everything back to red. I hope this macro could be assigned to a form button.

Change Font Color Based On Adjacent Cell Color

Apr 18, 2008

I have two columns. The first one (A) contains cells that have different Fill colors. The second column (B) contains text adjacent to the colored cells. I am trying to change the color of the text in the second column (B) to the corresponding color in the adjacent cell in the first column (A). I don't think conditional formating works well in this situation. I believe the solution would be some sort of macro.

Color Cells Based On Multiple Conditions Of Different Cells

Jan 15, 2008

Im trying to change color in cell B9 according to different conditions in Cell C9 (than on b10 according to c10 and so long until necessary - probably will be around 2000 lines). Since there are more than 3 conditions and in two cases condition depends on the color of the C Column, I can not use conditional formatting. Ive searched and found similar forums here, but since Im ignorant in VBA code, I couldnt manage to make adjustments. So if you can help me with the code, I would really appreciate it!

Condition and Results required would be:

IF column C = S than on Column B = color cell light blue with white border
IF column C = P than on Column B = color cell Green with white border
IF column C = A than on Column B = color cell Yellow with white border
IF column C = L than on Column B = color cell Red with white border
IF column C = C than on Column B = color cell Dark Blue with white border
IF column C = than on Column B = color cell white
IF column C = V and has white background than on Column B = color cell white
IF column C = V and has a Dark Grey background than on Column B = color cell Dark Grey

I dont know if the last two are feasible.
