Changing Cell Colors For All Matching Textboxes Based On Text From Dropdown Menu

Feb 19, 2014

I have a large workbook, with multiple sheets. I would like to be able to select a name from a drop down menu, and have the cell color change for all entries of that name in my other sheets. I can do it manually, but it would be much cleaner and easier to have Excel do it for me. I have looked at other answers here on this forum and know that if it can be done,

Formula To Extract Value Based On Text Selected From Dropdown Menu?

Mar 18, 2014

I am creating a excel calculator to quick and easy calculate CBM (cubic metres) for a total number of cartons and pallets loaded into a container. The value of 1 carton or 1 pallet will be different depending on which type of packaging/pallet it is.

I have created drop down menues in order to choose the correct packaging / pallet. But I am stuck on on to create the formula.

If I for example choose "LANDFROZEN 7KG CARTONS" from the drop down menu, I need the formula to collect the value in cell E18
If I for exampel choose "LANDFROZEN 10 KG CARTONS" from the drop dwon menu, I need the formula to collect the value in cell E25 .... and so on.

I have tried to use several functions, but none is working the way I want them to :-)

Export Cell Range Based On Dropdown Menu?

Jun 3, 2014

Ok, so I have a sheet with a working drop down list with dates, and depending on the date you choose, certain columns getting hidden and some un hidden. The layout is the same form is repeated 7 times, and which ever date you pick, the corresponding form gets un hidden. My question is, I have a button that will export it to a new sheet with just the values, to be sent to the office. I don't need to send the entire work book and confuse people.

I know how to export, just not using an if then to choose which columns to export.

Changing Cell Colors With Vba

Mar 17, 2007

I'm trying to have change if the date on it is passed "now()". I am already using the 3 conditional formatting fields and need this one and another one. Here are 2 problems I seem to be having.

First - the code below only works if I change the date on the cell. I want code to either work with Worksheet Active or any other way so the user does not have to redo the dateís everyday.
Second - a record might have conditional formatting already. Is it possible for the target cell in this code can show this color while the rest of the row shows the color of the conditional formatting?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("G1:G2000")) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Target
Case Is <= Now()
icolor = 39

End Select

Target.Interior.ColorIndex = icolor
End If

End Sub

Formulas Based On Results From Dropdown Menu?

Dec 23, 2013

I am building a sheet that facilitates managers at our company decipher information that is given to them on a daily workbook I created.

I want to have a drop down menu in Col J, that refers to the major questions they will ask.

Time started (Before)
Time Finished (After)
Number of Cards (More than)
Stops Per hour (more than)
Amount of Time Taken (More Than)

I have set up in Col (K) a secondary drop-down list which based on the question selected in (J) will offer options for the answer E.G Time questions will make (K) refer to options based on time and selections based on amounts will offer numbers as an answer.

The elements in brackets are the parts of the formula that create the search option. E.G If select 'Time Started' it will search for all records that started before the time selected in the next col (K)

Right if that makes sense.. I have completed this. so I have the following: A question drop down list in (J), and an answer drop down in (K) which is dependant on the type of question asked. (I have attached an example)

I want to now have a totals box after the question where it displays a total amount of cols that are true to the details in the question.

After that (if possible) I will want to use conditional formatting to highlight the ones that reflect to the question.

Realistically if possible i wouldnt mind creating a question box, a box that allows them to select 'more than', 'exact' or 'less than' and then the specific value. Basically a conditional formatting box for dummies within the worksheet. Attached is a demonstration.

Formula Based On Dropdown Menu Selection?

Feb 21, 2014

Sheet 1 has a table of prices. There are 7 columns labelled 2 thru 8 and two rows, labelled 1 and 2. Each combo has a separate price.

Sheet 2 has a weight specification (1 or 2 referring to the rows in sheet 1) and a drop down menu with options 2 thru 8.

When I choose a number from the drop down menu, let's say 5, I want to populate another cell with the value from sheet 1 of column 5 on row "whatever the weight spec is", let's say 2.

Changing Values Based On Drop Down Menu Selection

Dec 15, 2009

Attached is the file i am working with. The table spanning from A:AA5:16 contains hours worked per day of the week with respect to the Project chosen from the drop down menus in A7:16. Cells in the range of F,K,O,R,U,X,AA7:16 total those hours worked on a daily basis. The table below should sum the total hours worked per day according to the Project selected in A19 from the drop down menu, with respect to the Project(s) chosen in cell range A7:16. For example, if i am looking for total hours worked Monday on Project RSB i select "RSB" from the drop down menu in cell A19, i want cell F18:19 to be the sum of cells A7 and A9, with respect to the Project selected from cells A7:16. If I select "FRG" from the drop down in cell A19, i want cell F18:19 to reflect the sum of cells F8 and F10.

Change Button Function Based On Dropdown Menu Selection?

Jun 9, 2014

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 have a excel file to keep track of sales pipeline. What I am looking for, is an automated utility or code that will allow excel to automatically move entire rows once a task is completed and can be moved to another sheet.

What I would like, is that once you have selected one of the sales stage, the entire row or entry, will be automatically moved to a new sheet according to each stage.

Changing Colors In Specific Cell When Conditions Met In Another Cell

Apr 22, 2014

I need to change the color of a specific cell when conditions are met in a different cell and it seems like it may be beyond the scope of simply applying conditional formatting. What vba code would look like in proper syntax to make the following statement true. IF cell value Q4 is >=cell value S4 AND cell value R4 is <100 Then cell Q4 turns red and IF cell value Q4 is >= cell value S4 AND cell value R4 =100 then cell Q4 turns green. it may also be useful to know that the "cell values" in this example will be dates and not straight values. this may be possible to do using conditional formatting, but i cannot find a formula that works.

Changing Cells Colors In Relation To Cell Input - NOT Conditional Formatting Ques

Mar 22, 2008

I'm a average excel user, i know my way around it and kow common and basic formulee, VB isnt a strong point, but i am willing to attemp anything for this, let me explain

Lets say in colum A I have a list of items, in colum B i have a check box, currently the check box is red, if i tpye a x it turns green due to conditional formating. That works fine...onto the problem...

Lets say in colum A i have my items but they are repeated...eg A1, A145, A166, A122 are all the same item, what i want is regardless of where i place the x each check box under coloum B either gets a X and turns green, or just turns green, i dont mind...

I dont think conditional formatting can cut this, though i may be wrong. Ive tried to use the IF function under condtional formatting but ran into problems...

Can Abbreviate What Is Displayed In A Cell When Using Dropdown Menu

Jul 29, 2013

Is it possible to display only one character when using drop down menu? For example, if the drop down choices are A=...., B=...., etc., is it possible to only display the A or B in the cell after you've made your selection?

The purpose of this spreadsheet is to obtain data that will be entered into an application. So it would be very useful if it could be printed on one page - and the columns only show A, B, C, etc. Also, as it is now, the spreadsheet is difficult to work on because there is so much visible text.
