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...

Formatting Cells Dependent On Other Cells Relation To That Cell.

Jan 4, 2010

i have just read the thread started by scabertrain regarding "if" conditonal formating, but mines slightly different and i cant make head nor tale of the fomula shown.

So... Monthly budgeting... using a projected outgoing (A1) and an actual outgoing (A2) i want the colour "A2" to change depending on whether i have spent over the budgeted amount, green being underspent, orange for on target and red for over spending....

Example:

I predicted (A1) that i was going to spend 50 on a night out, but my actual spending (A2) was 100, i would like A2 to turn to red.

Excel 2010 :: Counting Cells With Interior Colors Set Via Conditional Formatting

Jan 3, 2014

How to sort out a way to count cells whose fill colors have been set via conditional formatting.

I'm sure that I was once able to use Chip Pearson's CountOfCF function back in the days of Excel 2003, as it worked around the 3 condition limit and used .ColorIndex which assumed that you'd only ever be formatting using the .ColorIndex values of 1 to 56, but I can't seem to be able to get it to work in 2010.

Update Cell In Relation To Input Of Another Cell

Mar 25, 2008

I will try to be as clear and concise as possiable and adhear to the forum rules. I'm not a excel wizz, though I know the bascics and am willing to learn, I have a list in column A, in thise list there are repeated words eg the word sugar is repeated in A23, A45, A56 etc. In column B i have condition format so when i type a 'x' it turns the cell color from red to green.

What i am trying to do is if i enter the 'x' in column B in relation to the word - in this case sugar - it will automatically enter a x in all the other cells in B that has the word in there corresponding A column that matches the orginal 'x'. So for example if the word sugar is repeated in A23, A45 and A56 regaredless of where i enter the 'x' in the b column, weather its B23, B45 or B56 then cells i didnt manually enter the x will auto update in corresondance to the word...

Conditional Formatting :: Change Colors As Per Dates

Oct 23, 2009

Im sure conditional formatting is the way forward with this but cant quite get the formula right. I need 2 columns: Column A will have dates that an event happened on. Column B will be blank until we have received back in a letter that went out on the date in column A. At which point the date the letter was received back in will be entered into column B

What I need is for the Colour of Column B to change from green (before and on the date of Column A) to Amber (for the next 3 days) and then red (from Day 5 onwards. This would be until a date was entered in column B (the date the letter is received back in) at which point it would just go back to white. This would keep a check on how long the letter was out for and whether we need to chase it up or not and with an increasing urgency.

Copying And Pasting Conditional Formatting With Changing Cell Values

Mar 19, 2013

How to copy and paste conditional formatting with our changing the cell values. My first row of data starts in row 4 and here is what I have in D4

If D4 is less than or equal to AA4, AW4, BS4, CO4 then it will highlight D4

Now I want to copy that format and paste it for all rows in column D. The problem I'm having though is when I paste the formula it doesn't change to match the row I'm on. For example, when I paste it in D5 this is what I get

If D5 is less than or equal to AA4, AW4, BS4, CO4 then it will highlight D5

How do I paste it so that it will update to show AA5, AW5, BS5, and CO5. I want to be able to do this for 500 rows.

Changing Cell Text Color WITHOUT Using Conditional Formatting Based On Finding Keywords

May 29, 2012

I have a spreadsheet that uses VB macros to calculate sums of cells based on the font color of the numbers inside. It used to be fairly easy going through each cell and "classifying" them by color, so that my macros can go ahead and sum the numbers in each respective color's cell... but now I have a huge amount of numbers and would like to automate the process somewhat. Here's an example using the A and B columns:

flight $400
hotel $150
hotel $130
meal $20
meal $15
flight $350

I tried using conditional formatting to automatically change the color of the adjacent cells based on the presence of a keyword such as "flight" or "hotel", but this change is only cosmetic, and doesn't actually change the font color (it is still the default black, hence why my color-summing macros won't work!).

I'm including a sample macro for what I use to color-sum my cells, but what I am looking to automate the color-coding process based on looking for keywords as explained above in my example. Here is one of the working color-summing macros (for red, in this case) if you'd like to use it as a reference:

Function SumRed(SelectedCells As Range)
' Adds the values of the cells where the font colour is red(3).
Dim Cell As Object
Dim x As Double

[Code] ...........

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 dates 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

Conditional Input In A Cell Based On Data In Two Different Cells And Other Values

Dec 4, 2009

I have lot of data in three columns like this. The first column is "Name", the second is "Comment" wherein I want the macro to write some comment, the third one is DOB. The problem is that the names in column 1 repeats many times. I want a macro to write in column B "either Old or Older or Oldest" based on the Name and DOB. Thus David with DOB 13 Sep 1982 be marked Oldest in Column B and David with DOB 25 Aug 1988 be marked Older and David with DOB 24 May 1990 be marked Old. Similarly William and Rita should be marked either old or older or oldest. As the data are enormous I do not want to refer the actual name in the programming. I want to call them using a variable in programming.

NameComment DOB
David 25 August 1988
David 13 September 1982
David 24 May 1990
William 24 March 1980
William 25 July 1987
William 13 August 1989
Rita 17 July 1990
Rita 24 April 1989
Rita 13 June 1988
The example file is attached

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.

Conditional Formatting Color Changing?

May 28, 2014

We have a spreadsheet that is sent to a manager weekly. The manager takes the sheets from 30+ individuals and copies all into a single workbook that is then distributed to a very large audience and reviewed weekly. In this workbook, I have created drop downs with conditional formatting - Low = Green, Medium = Yellow, Critical = Red. On the original workbook, this formatting works great, however, after the manager consolidates and redistributes all worksheets the Green shows Gray, Yellow is OK and Red shows Black.

Formatting Cell Colors With Multiple Conditions

Oct 29, 2008

so what will happen is that the number of rows will continuously increase as the groups of data (Labeled Group #) increases. The data within each group will vary from time to time so some groups may contain only one line while others may contain multiple lines. I have included an attachment that illustrates what I'm trying to achieve. When data is entered in Column A under "Q," the adjacent empty cells in Columns B-F (labeled "R"-"V") will turn red. This is the part I have (i.e. Group 2).
