Change Text Color While Combining Cells

Jul 21, 2008

Is there a way to combine cells in excel and chage the color of part of it?

Example: On my sheet I have multiple cells I need to combine:
Say A1 reads 23.65
Say A2 reads 43.65
Now on A3 I want it to read "Estimated budget 23.65 vs 43.65"

I can get this to work but here is the problem, I want the 23.65 to always be red and bolded and the 43.65 to always be blue and bolded.

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.

VBA - Change Color Of ALL Text In Chart

Dec 21, 2011

I am having a hard time figuring how to change the color of all the different text groups in a chart, header, axis, labels etc, and even the macro recorder has failed me this time - I have recorded the following, where I selected the graph, changed textcolor to white and then ended the recording - but without changing anything in the code, it returns an error on the second line (starting with "with"):

Run-time error '-2147024809 (80070057)':
The value is outside of the boundaries (translated from danish)

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart1").Activate
With ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart1").TextFrame2.TextRange.Font.Fill
.Visible = msoTrue
.ForeColor.ObjectThemeColor = msoThemeColorBackground1
.ForeColor.TintAndShade = 0
.ForeColor.Brightness = 0
.Transparency = 0
.Solid
End With

From what I have read, it might be something with the textframe2 property.

Excel 2007 :: Change Text Color Within Formula?

May 1, 2014

In Excel 2007 I know that if you have a cell containing text that you can change the color of parts of that text like This is the text in my cell and this is red text

But I have a cell with a formula that adds text to the end based on a conditional. I can't see any way to change the text color in this situation. I basically want this formula:

=D_Notes & TEXT(CHAR(10),) & IF(Terms = "Budgetary Estimate Only", "Quote is budgetary only and is subject to change pending final design.","")

How To Change Font Color In Portion Of Text String

Jul 16, 2013

I have a button (shape) whose text value is linked to cell A1. (In other words, if text in cell A1 changes, the text on the button changes). A concatenation formula exists in cell A1 to "join" together a combination of text and cell values. The formula in A1 looks something like this:

="You have "&B10&" records that contain errors."

I'd like to set the font for the "&B10" portion to be a different color than the rest of the text string so that it stands out from the rest of the text. Obviously this can be done when the text is manually entered into a text box, but when using a formula to populate the text in the text box, it's all or nothing. I'm hoping to find a way to embed a separate font color within the formula string in A1 for just the portion I want to change? For example, all text would be regular/black, but the numeric value generated from cell B10 would be yellow.

Cells Automatically Change Color

Sep 25, 2007

I have been given a spreadsheet that turns whole rows different colours when certain data is entered into a cell. I want to locate the code and use it elsewhere, but cant find it?

I have looked at all of the change related procedures in the drop downs, for the Workbook e.g.

Is there a way of exporting every line of code and then open this file in notepad to skim through it?

how I might find the code that is making the rows turn different colours?

Change Matched Cells Background Color

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.

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

Change Cell Color If Another Cells Content Is Yes Or No

Apr 3, 2009

I have a large workbook with some tasks.

My problem is:

I have 8 columns with info.

In the second column i type a part number and in the third one i type "Yes" or "No".

I wanted to make the second columns cell turn red if the third column's value is Yes or white if the value is No.

Is possible to do that with the help of a formula, conditional formating or vba?

I prefer to use a formula or the conditional formating.

I searched the net but i found a solution if the third column contains a number not a text.

Clear Contents & Change Color Of Cells

Nov 3, 2006

how to clear contents and change colour index of cells.

This is for a booking system. The current VB codes allows bookings to be made by entering a reference number, dates of bookings and room type and bed type. When the VB codes are executed, the cells corresponding to the details entered earlier, would fill the booking table with the reference number and change the colour fill (e.g. yellow) to indicate that the slots are booked. Please refer to attached sample.

However, I do not know how to delete the booking. I would like to assign a cell for user to enter the reference number that needs to be deleted. So when the reference number is entered into that cell, user could execute a function which will clear the contents and change the colour index to none for that particular booking with that reference number(s).

Attached is a sample of the problem.

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

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?
