How do I change the color of a row, based on the users selection from a drop down box in that row? I have four driving types in my drop down , Towing - Town Driving - All highway - Mixed. I would like each driving type, if selected, to change the color of the entire Row of Data to a different color. I have been able to use conditional formating to change the drop down cell itself, but that is it.
I have attached a portion of an excel file I am using at the moment. What I require is a piece of VBA code which will allow me to copy selected data based on a combo box selection. What needs to happen is this :-
If the selection in the "Index" worksheet combo box related to "Month" in cell G19 is for instance "December", I would like the macro to compare this cell value to the cell values in cells C96, C124, C152, C180, C209, C236, C263 and C290 in the "Tech Services" worksheet and where the values match.......copy the commentary (Range C126:Z147 in December's case) to the range C34:Z55.
I just want to create a combo box that will allow my manager --- not so good at using menu commands or the scenario manager --- to choose one of five different budget scenarios. I can't seem to get the actual scenarios to change when the selection is made from the combo-box.
I have a spreadsheet with 2 combo boxes - Combobox 1 enables a user to specify if they want to look at the data on the sheet by week or month - it has just 2 options - "select by week" or "select by month"
The list in combobox 2 changes based on the selection in combobox1 - so if you select "select by week" , a date list by week shows up.
Combobox 2 is supposed to run a macro which updates some backend pivot tables. there are 2 types of backend pivottable - weekly tables and monthly tables.
What i am not sure about is how to get the selections in combobox 2 to run either the weekly macro or the monthly macro based on if combobox1 is set to week or month ...?
I just loaded 2007, and among the things driving me nuts is I can't figure out how to change the color of highlighted cells that I have selected. The default color is so close to the normal background color(White) that it is difficult for me to distinguish between selected cells and unselected cells.
I've tried the built in help but couldn't seem to search for the right phrase to bring up a relevant answer. I've had the same problem when trying google and Microsoft's office 2007 help site. I also searched the forum before posting and came up blank.
I have a peice of code that i know is inefficient and it is in danger of becoming too large. I have a spreadsheet that has circles aligned to each cell. There are around 100 in total. The code changes the colour of the shape based on the cell value in which it sits. However, the code needs changing and also it does not automatically update the colour shape even though the cell value changes. I have to manually select a cell and then the formula bar and then press return for it to update.
I am using excel 2010.
This is the code i am using for each shape.
Code: If Range("n12").Value = text Then ActiveSheet.Shapes("Oval 250").Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 255, 255) End If
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.
I've tried to do conditional formatting for each of the "Discipline" values in this spreadsheet but it is restricted to only 3. Is there a way around this? I'm trying to setup a color code for the "Discipline" values for example RN=Red, LPN=Blue, Social Worker=Orange, Chaplain=Purple, STNA=Yellow, Volunteer=Pink & Other=Green. So when the "Discipline" cell/cells on each of the patient sheets (ie. "Doe, Jane", "Doe, John", etc.) is equal to say RN the cell would then turn Red either on the spreadsheet or only when sheet is printed.
I have created a named range that includes raw data layed out in 4 columns (Finish Name, Fill Color, Pattern, Font Color). On a separate sheet, when one of the finish names is selected in a particular cell, I want the cells fill, pattern, and font color to change according to the raw data. Below is the vba code I am trying to get to work. However, it is not working. It does not break, but does not achieve the desired result. It looks like the variables are getting set correctly, but still not changing the cell when they are referenced. I am only testing it on the first finish color, as seen in the code. All of the rest are static values for the cell, but I want the values to be dynamic.
Sub SetFinishSeparatorColor() ActiveCell = frmFinishSeparator.cboFinish.Value Set rngTarget = ActiveCell With Sheets("Pick List Do Not Tamper").Range("Finish_Cell_Color") lngFinishCellColor = . Find(What:=rngTarget, After:=.Cells(1, 1), _ LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _ SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False).Offset(0, 1)..............
I am unable to cast the Application.Selection object to Type Shape. I have created a Rectangle, and tried running code after selecting it. And for some reasons I am unable to cast the selected object to shape.
I have put a 3d shape on the excel sheet, and would like it unclickable. Is there way to accomplish that with the sheet still clickable. I know that you can use protection from Tools manual to protect the sheet. Is there way to protect just specific object or range of cell unclickable?
and its works, but when I change the color via conditional formatting, the value is not update, I have to go to the cell, press F2 and hit enter to get the value updated, I mean, I need to do a kind of refresh to get the value of the conditinal format.
I have attached my Excel File with the userform I am trying to do. What I am trying to do is change the table in the listbox based on the selection of the combobox and then my selection in the listbox will pass the selected values to Range A1:C1.
I've got a drop-down menu with four options in it that match up with the cells D11:D14, and next to those I've got spots for counting the totals (E11:E14). Next to the drop-down I've got plus and minus buttons, and I need to make it so if I have the top option selected in the dropdown and press plus, it adds +1 to E11. Second option and the same plus button, +1 to E12, and so on.
The purpose is for a call tracker, the employee would select the reason for the call (maybe more added later) and hit the button to add the call to the report.
I've looked so I know you normally ask for what I've got so far, and that's nothing. I've got all the other buttons wired up but I don't even know where to start with this one. I can include a screenshot if necessary.
I'm trying to set up a spreadsheet to track 20 vehicles mileage, and when they are due for an oil change. I have the value of when they are next due in column D, and the actual mileage in column G. I want to have the row for each vehicle turn yellow when they are within 1,000 miles of needing an oil change, and red when they are due/overdue.
I have been trying to figure out how to change the color of a specific tab based on information being entered in cell "B9" for each sheet that the tabs represent. If there is information in cell B9 on "tab 1", I want only tab 1 to change a color. If there is no information entered in cell B9 of tab 2, then I want tab 2 to stay with its default color.
There are 34 tabs I want this to happen to, out of just more than 60 total tabs on the worksheet.
