This may have been answered on here but can not seem to find it. My situation is I have values in A1,A2 & A3 that are like counter reading so the value is always changing. What I am looking to do is change the cell color if one of the values is over 500 from the other two values. Say A1 is 3000, A2 is 3250 and A3 is 3500. I would like the cell for A3 to change color.
I am trying to use VBA in Excel 2007 to change bar chart series colors. I have found a few posts that link it to a cell background, but I'm struggling to find one that does the font color.
It would be great if I could change the bar chart series to match the color of the text in the A column, so that if I highlighted the value in A1 and changed the text color to orange for whatever reason, the chart updates the value of 1.2 to an orange bar (see below).
I wrote a macro to color the cell values in the rows based on their average value. For eg if the cell value is less than 0.2 Avg, they should be red color,if value is between 0.2 and 0.5 it should be yellow. This part is working fine
Now based on the color of the rows cells , need to write a macro for the header one. Logic is Coloum header should be in red colour, if in one or more number of rows cells are red. same with yellow ones. Could you please help me out in solving this with logic.
I am looking for a way to change the fill color of a row to just a portion of a row based on a on cell in the value on on cell in the row. I understand it should have something to do with ifthen but not realy sure of the exact phrases.
Need the formula or redirect me to a thread about changing the text color of numbers based on value.
I.e. I need for negitive numbers to be RED Positive numbers to be BLACK and 0 to be YELLOW like below.
1.0 0.0 -1.0
This formula will be use for a huge data base and only one column needs to be affected by it. Currently I had click the option to change color but it becomes a hassle and there is room for error. I wish to put the data in the column and not worry about the color.
I have a spreadsheet where you can choose one of two options per row.
The listbox says either CASH or CHECK. If the user selects CASH, I would like the row to stay the same color. If the user selects CHECK I would like the row to be highlighted or change color. Upon a glance, anyone who knew the system could then tell how many people paid by CHECK, and who they were.
I would like to know if there is a way to change the color of certian cells by entering in a month. Example. I would type in 10/10/08 and the cell would change color to brown. Not dure how to go about doing this or even if it can be done.
I'm trying to change a cell color depending on another cells color. This is what I have so far:
PHP Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Column = 5 Then Customer = findit(Selection.Value, Range("L:L")) Colour = Range(Customer).Interior.ColorIndex If Colour = 3 Then With Selection.Interior .ColorIndex = 3 .Pattern = xlSolid End With End If End IfEnd Sub
findit is another function I found on the internet:
PHP Function findit(v As Variant, r As Range) As String findit = "" For Each rr In r If rr.Value = v Then findit = rr.Address Exit Function End If NextEnd Function
Everything works, except it just wont change the cell color. I have tried loads of different ways, Target.Interior.ColorIndex Selection. ActiveCell. Range().
If I put a msgbox in the If section it shows up so everything is working, besides the color.
EDIT: im using this with data validation list if that makes a difference.
How do I use VB to change the comment box color to blue. The code i have now defualts to red.
Public preValue As Variant 'Declares a variable to be used in both macros 'This is the first line for a macro that runs when a cell is changed. Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub 'Limits the change to 1 cell only If Intersect(Target, Range("$A$1:$M$42")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub Target.ClearComments 'Clears any existing comment Target.AddComment.Text Text:="Previous Value was " & preValue & Chr(10) & "Revised " & Format( Date, "mm-dd-yyyy") & Chr(10) & "By " & Environ("UserName") 'Adds a new comment with the text. CHR(10) is a return...............
We have a spreadsheet that is sent to a manager weekly. The manager takes the sheets from 30+ individuals and copies all into a single workbook that is then distributed to a very large audience and reviewed weekly. In this workbook, I have created drop downs with conditional formatting - Low = Green, Medium = Yellow, Critical = Red. On the original workbook, this formatting works great, however, after the manager consolidates and redistributes all worksheets the Green shows Gray, Yellow is OK and Red shows Black.
I am trying to make a reference to tell me when my rigging gear is due for inspection. I want the cell to change colors when a date is in range. For example i would like a red cell when the item is due or past due for inspection. A yellow cell for when the item is 90 days out from the due date. i have used conditional formating and used =E$-30<=TODAY() and changed cell to red. but when i add another format, for E$-90<=TODAY() for yellow, it will not work.
Once this is solved, i will need to make the entire row change color.
Quick question, I know how to change a cells background / text color based on it's own value using conditional formatting but what would be the formula to change cell A1's background color based on the value of cell C1?
I would like to change the color of my text on my X-axis of a graph. I would like to have 4 or 5 different colors to identify different categories. I see how I can change all the text but how would I change just the text in column 1-3 to red, column 4-7 to blue, etc...
I have a quarterly report that measures the safety performance of the plants in our company using bar charts. One set of 4 charts for the company as a whole and four additional sets of four for each of our divisions for a total of 20 charts.
I would like to change the color of the bars based on whether the location has met (bars colored green) or failed to meet (bars colored red) the goal for that criteria. The company average will be a yellow bar. Of course it can be done manually but that is really slow and tedious.
Is there a way, using VBA or a macro, to change the color of a bar (data point) based on the value of that data point? Can it run through all of the data points in each chart and make those changes based on criteria that I can set for each type of chart?
I have no knowledge of VB programming and the conditional formatting seems limited. I want to change to the color of cells to yellow if the cell value is greater than 80 but less than 99, and if it is 100 or greater to fill red. Is this possible and if so can it be applied to a range of cells?
I am trying to create a chart that will show each month of the year's workload based on orders due for each month. I have all of the information needed on a spreadsheet to chart this into a simple chart showing the load, however, I want a little extra on the charting to show me additional details.
I would like for my chart to also display the available man hours for each month against the workload. I would like for the available man hours to be displayed by color changes in each month bar column of the graph.
So if I had 1000 hours of work in the month of April and only 960 man hours available in April it would have shown me throughout the month as the chart grew that I was "Green" for all hours below 860. The as the chart grew past 860 that portionof the chart changed to "Orange" telling me that the hours were soon to be full. Once it reached 960 that part of the chart would turn "Red" as an indication that we have more workload than we can complete for that month. This would be useful for me as an overtime tool, as well as for review for additional man hours or a decrease in man hours.
I am trying to create a model that has a mixture of conditional formatting and data validation formulas within it, but have run into a problem in one area. Essentially, cell E10 is a Validation which pulls a drop down list of names. One of the options in this list is "Other".
I want to create a VBA code to make sure that cell E12 will get rid of any input, turn grey (color index = 15), and potentially lock (if possible!) if the "Other" is chosen by the user in cell E10. If any other value is chosen for cell E10, Cell E12 needs to remain unlocked and white (color index=2).
My nominal number is 2.000 and in column A, it can not be larger or smaller than .005 which is in column C. If it is larger than 2.005 or smaller than 1.995, I would like to change the cell column B color to red. I have tried =abs(a1-b1)c1. but does not do what I want it to.
I was copying cells from one spreadsheet to another using the following IF statement. It basically says that if the cell in this spreadsheet is blank, then put nothing in there. If it is not blank, put in data from another spreadsheet. The problem is that when it copied the information over, it was in a completely different color than the original cell. So, for example, if I put the following formula in the new spreadsheet, it will copy the cell information from the listed spreadsheet in this formula and place it in the appropriate cell, but it is changing the data from its original color to green.
=IF($I2="","",'[Reinstatement Template--KGM.xls]Car Care Non CA'!L1)
I have an excel sheet in which many cells have a background color of Green. These cells are located all over the sheet. I want to change the background color from Green to Red not affecting the color of other cells in the sheet.
I will be realy really thankful, as I have to do this exercise for more than 50 worksheets.......If I start doing it manually by selecting each celll with green color background and changing it to red.....you can well imagine my condition.....my life would get shorten significantly while doing this.
