I have a worksheet that when a row changes based on the value of column B, I want to remove all of the formulas found in the row but keep the existing values, and then change the color of the row.
In the sample file attached, when the value is "Closed", that row will keep the existing values and then it gets grayed out. Rows that are still marked "Open" need to retain the formulas in case other information changes.
I have tried copy/paste special using autofiltering but that doesn't work because of the hidden lines. This file changes on a daily basis and I need a quick way to update the file.
I have a simple spreadsheet. A column for a persons name and 31 columns, one for each day of the month. I want to apply conditional formatting, either fill color or border color, to the date column of the current date when the spreadsheet is opened.
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 want to highlight the cell of Column 'A' of excel only when it does not contain the text like "Verify", "Validate" or "Evaluate" in its content if, the value in corresponding cell of Column 'B' holds the value 'Y'. Secondly, the column 'A' can't contains the words like 'Verify', 'Validate' and 'Evaluate' if the corresponding cell in Column 'B' holds value 'N'. So just need to highlight those discrepancies if its there.
Column A Column B Expected Action
Press F3 N Its Fine
Verify this.. Y Its Fine
this.... Y Need to Highlight Cell of Column A as Value in Column B is Y but the column A does not contain any value like "Verify", Validate" or "Evaluate"
Verify This. N Need to Highlight Cell of Column B as the Value of Column A contains words like "verify", "validate", "evaluate" but corresponding cell value in column B does not hold value "Y".
I'm trying to discover the best way to accomplish formatting a cell by filling it a certain color based on 2 of 3 criteria of other cells.
Column A has the title of the field. Cells B1:D1 have one of 3 values: Nothing/blank, Complete, or x. If all of the x's are gone within the range of B1:D1, I'd like to automatically format cell A1 to fill in Blue (or any color).
I am a locksmith and attempting to write a spreadsheet app. for my line of work. The output page will use columns A-G and rows 1-?10000? depending on the size of the system. If a 5 pin system is requested then columns A+B will be blacked out. 6 pin system A is blacked out. 7 pin system nothing blacked out. Also, if any cell matches the master key that was input, that cell is filled with red. I know, confusing.
Basically, I am trying to remove the blacked out columns automatically, and to remove the enitire row is any cell in that row is filled with red. Then to remove blank lines.
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.
I'm trying to change the tab color based on a cell value. This I can do, but only using a Change Event with code in the Worksheet section. I would like it to update more instantly and without the need for a Change on the sheet to occur. So I was thinking a Worksheet_Activate event, or perhaps a Workbook_Activate event, but i can't get it to work.
For further info, if not confusing, the cell referenced in code below (on the Dan sheet) is filled using a user entered variable when the workbook is opened. Depending on this value, i would like the tabs to update their color accordingly and instantly, as well as the color updating if the cell B3 on the sheet is changed. Perhaps I need a Worksheet Activate & Deactivate and Workbook Activate and Deactivate?
Public sPeriod As Long Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) sPeriod = Worksheets("Dan").Cells(2, 4).Value If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Target.Address(False, False) = "B3" Then Select Case UCase(Target.Value) Case sPeriod - 1: ActiveSheet.Tab.Color = RGB(0, 0, 255) Case Else: ActiveSheet.Tab.Color = RGB(255, 0, 0) End Select End If End Sub
Function BG(InRange As Range) Range("InRange").Select With Selection.Interior .ColorIndex = 6 .Pattern = xlSolid End With End Function
That so far but not quite sure why that isnt working. I want to change the fill color with a UDF that all they do is select a Range and it changes those fill colors to whatever the Colorindex may be. I didnt find anything while searching the forums with this already.
I have a large spring-selection table, which is populated with things like "4.88 x 635" and "5.26 x 584". There are 1520 fields in the table populated with any combination of the 432 springs available for selection. The spreadsheet takes my criteria, finds out which springs it's allowed to choose from, and populates the table. It could be 20 springs, could be 30. I'm trying to get the number down to 10. The table updates when I change the criteria.
What I'm after at this point is a macro which will color-code the table based on the cell contents, so that all the "4.88 x 635" have one color and all the "5.26 x 584" have another colour. Doesn't have to be any particular colour, just so long as it's a bit different to the cells around it. how the table reacts.
The biggest spring size is "6.93 x 1727", which could be converted to a color reference, perhaps by adding up all the digits, or taking out the non-digits and dividing by 123781, I don't know I'm thinking out loud. And then just assign the cell color to that number.
Where to start a macro like this. Obviously it would use ActiveCell.Interior.ColorIndex but I can't find anything like this on the web.
I have cells in range L12:BN1000 with formulas that will output a 1 or a 2.
If the output is 1, I would like the cell to color yellow if the output is 2, I would like the cell to color orange
the reason I dont want to use conditional formatting is because the use needs to be able to copy and insert rows and by doing so the use would need to manually add the new cells into the conditional format range. I would like to come up with a macro that applies this condition to a large range.
also, were do I add this macro? under sheet1? this workbook? or as a module?
Can I change the color of a cell based on my deviation from the number based above it? I am making a golf spreadsheet to base my performance off of, and I was wondering if I could make the cell change color based on my performance on the hole (different color for how many strokes above or under par). If anyone has any idea on this issue, please let me know.
In an excell worksheet I need to change the color of a cell within a column based on the date entered. For example, if the date in the cell is 60 days from today's date then the cell should be green, if the date in the cell is 90 days from today's then the cell should be blue, if the date in the cell is 120 days from today's date then the cell should be yello.
I want to change the fill color of all cells on my sheet, based on the value of one specific cell. In my sheet, I am using cell F1 as the trigger for the change. If the word Blue is in the cell, I want the background color of all cells to be Blue. Likewise for Red and Yellow as well. I don't believe conditional formatting can get this done, as all but the one cell (for this) will be empty.
I want to change the color of a cell's background based on valid data in the cell. I have a pull-down list, it uses a named list, and this all works fine. I want the cell to be red, and then after the user selects a valid entry from the pull-down list, I want to change the cell to yellow.
My cell has a 'P' or an 'F' plus some additional text. I'm trying to change cell color based on the 'P' or 'F' but I can't get it to recognize the letters. Samples of what I've tried: =IF(LEFT(L23,1)=P) =IF(MID(L23,1,1)=P) etc.
I can 'FIND' the 'P' or 'F' but there may be a P or F else where in the cell so the color may come up incorrect. I'm trying to get it to just look at the first character in the cell. Can the 'IF' be used with CFs?
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.
VBA macro to change the color of a cell automatically for a specific period of time -say 5 minutes, based on the value the subject cell holds at that time. The cell value is not manually entered but comes from a sub.
There will be hundreds of such cells so that the macro must be able to be repeated for other cells utilizing their individual cell values as well.
