# Check 10 Different Text Values And Return False For All Of Those In The Conditional Formatting Rule

Sep 13, 2007

Allows me to check like 10 different text values and return false for all of those in the conditional formatting rule. When those are not present, the conditional format is true thus applying the format.

I tried
=NOT(FIND("text1",\$A\$1,1))
It did not work because I believe this statement doesnt give the rule its TRUE value its looking for.

I am having trouble with this, to clarify I need the below...
Cell has conditional formatting checking for text1 text2 text3...text 10ish and if they are present nothing will happen and if they arent present then format the cell.

EDIT: to clarify, the code should look for either text1 or text2 or text3 so on...

Is there a way color a cell red if the the text is "Z" or a number between 0.5 and 10

Or if the cell contains a "Z" or a "C" ....

## Multiple Criteria Per Conditional Formatting Rule..

Sep 18, 2009

how to adapt the solution so it would work in multiple cells. Since I was told to start a new thread, here it is. I want to format a cell based on its contents, If it has one of three entries, it should be greyed. I then want to use the conditional format across the whole page, but the solution given in the other thread refers to a single cell, how can I do this without that reference?

## Set A Conditional Formatting Rule That Makes A Cell Red?

Jan 9, 2014

I want to set a conditional formatting rule that makes a cell red or green depending on if the value in the cell is larger or smaller than the value in another cell +2% or -3%. If neither of these conditions are met no formatting should be applied..

a) In the cell (R104) where the condition is set I have the following formula:
=if(BP104=0;"";BQ104/BP104) (the values in BP104 and BQ104 is retrieved from a database)

b) The conditions I've set in R104 are the following

1) =isblank(\$R\$104) (condition: "nothing")

2) =\$R\$104<\$R\$106-0,02 (condition: "red")

3) =\$R\$104>\$R\$106+0,03 (condition: "green")

c) In cell R106 the value there is a value of 90%

The conditions seem to work fine when the value in R104 is higher or lower than the conditions set in 2 and 3 above but when the value is blank in R104 the cell goes green, which it shouldn't.

## Check Four Conditions Return TRUE Or FALSE

Nov 16, 2009

I have several rows with numbers that is either 0, a balance or a text like n/a. I need a formula that return true if all are 0 or contain n/a. If there is one balance shall it be false. Any suggestion? See example:

## Conditional Formatting Based On Text Values.

scenario: Column H needs to be formatted to green if the text in Column F does not equal "Dog". Dog could be either DOG, Dog or dog. I know how to get it done with only dog, but this one is a bit tricky.

## Conditional Formatting Based On True Or False Value Returned In Vlookup

Apr 21, 2014

i have a formula in a cell:

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$D11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(\$D11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE))&IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(\$E11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(\$E11,PRMC!\$O\$15:\$P\$1048576,2,FALSE))

The first half of the vlookup searches for data and returns a dollar amount if true The second half of the vlookup searches for another data set and returns a dollar amount if true...

Both amounts could be the same, so I cant use a formula based on numeric value

the conditional format must determine which vlookup is returning the result

in other words I'd like to conditionally format (grey fill) if the first vlookup returns data and conditionally format (blue fill) if the second vlookup returns data

Probably have to "use a formula to determine which cells to format"

## Conditional Formatting Multiple Number Values But IGNORING Text?

Sep 6, 2013

I have a spread sheet where there are multiple rows of price quotes from different suppliers.

Some suppliers have quoted, some however have not and there is a "#N/A" or "no bid".

SupplierA
SupplierB
SupplierC
SupplierD

1.3
No Bid
2.3
No Bid

How can I get a conditional format to check each row for the lowest numeric bid, highlight it but ignore the text?? What I have tried so far doesn't work.

=G31=MAX(\$G\$31:\$J\$31)

This does not seem to work, I don't know how to exclude the text values from the MAX function.

## Conditional Formatting For Entire Row Based On Presence Of Any Text / Values In Column

Oct 19, 2013

I am trying to apply a conditional format to an entire row based on the presence of any value in the first cell of that row to format to a certain color. If there isn't something present in the first cell, I don't want it to change.

Everything I keep trying ends up highlighting the entire workbook.

I would like to apply the rule to the entire sheet but only have it highlight the rows which have a value/text in the first cell of each row.

I am assuming I should use the formulas selection for conditional formatting but I'm unsure of what formula would apply to this type of request.

## IF Statement: Look At Different Cells And Return Different Values If Ture Or False

Nov 6, 2009

I have an IF statement that I need to look at different cells and return different values if ture or false, depending on what is selected in cell J2

Cell D2
if J2 = "FMB/FPI" then retrun the value of cell Y7
if J2 = "FPI/FPI" then N/A
if J2 = "FMB/OTHER" then return the value of cell Y7

Cell E2

## Formula To Return True/False If A Row Has 6 Contiguous 0 Values

Sep 25, 2009

I have number data in columns F through AK. In column AL I want a formula that will look in columns F through AK from the left to right. Once it identifies a positive value I want the formula to identify if after that positive number there are any occurances where there are 6 0's in a row (anywhere up until column AK). The formula can return a True or False. I want to drag the formula down across many rows of data. If the entire row contains 0's, I do not want it identified as a TRUE

## Check To See If Conditional Formatting Is Met?

Jan 31, 2014

Is there a code that can check if the conditional formatting of a cell is met? Or if it is met, how can I reference the condition in my userform to have a command button visible if the formatting is met?

Example: If cell range "Q8:Q51" has a cell that turns the color red when its conditional formatting is met, then I want a command button to appear on my userform.

## Return Values Of Adjacent Cells When Condition Is True Omitting Values Where Condition Is False?

Jan 15, 2014

Here's a simplified example:

ColA
ColB
ColC

Row1
A
Y
A

Row2
B
N
D

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

I'm looking to return the values in column A adjacent to the cells in Column B equal to "Y". The kicker has been returning only the cells where the condition is true. Column C displays the desired behavior.

The closest I've been able to get is with a simple IF statement but I'm pretty sure the answer is a far cry away from there and likely requires an array formula. I'd prefer not to use VLOOKUP or OFFSET but will if the alternative is very complex.

## Conditional Formatting Group Of Check Boxes

Feb 18, 2014

I am creating an income calculation sheet to qualify my borrowers. I have different "types" of income in regards to hourly pay, bonus pay and overtime pay (examples)

I am using check boxes for my worksheet for the income that my underwriters want to use (example OT plus regular pay or Bonus plus regular pay or just regular pay alone can all be different options) they would then just check the box for the combo they want to use. (my check boxes came from the developer tab and I have them formatted to show true/false for checked or unchecked.)

Intro to my problem: We have 3 separate time frames for each type of pay. (I have 2012 Bonus, 2013 Bonus and then 2014 year to date bonus.....and the same for Overtime pay and regular pay, etc.)

My underwriters can only use ONE of the 3 yearly options.

Excel problem: Im thinking I need to go conditional formatting for this, but I need something to pop up if they accidentally have 2 boxes checked in one category. (So if they accidentally mark a box to use 2012 OT AND 2014 OT year to date, thats a problem and will throw the #'s off) So Im thinking there is some way to conditionally format my true/false results from my check boxes. If 2 out of 3 say true, the cell should black out or something along those lines....

I attached a screen shot of how my worksheet looks as of now : Income example excel forum.docxâ€Ž

## Conditional Or VLookup (Gives True Or False If Text In A Cell Matches Any Cells In A Range)?

Jan 14, 2009

I need to create a formula that will give me True or False if text in a cell matches any cells in a range.

For example:

Species

Column C has other and sometimes matching text:
Name
Deal

Basically I have a list of companies each with five corresponding check boxes in different cells. I want the cell with the company name in (or just a symbol in the cell) to appear Green, Amber, Red when 5, 3-4, 1-2 of the boxes are checked respectively.

## Conditional Formatting To Check If Adjacent Cells Are Empty?

Jul 18, 2014

I've got a list and I need to check if the adjacent cells for a column are empty or not, and if both are empty then format to a certain color. I have a solution but don't know how to implement it into a format fit for conditional formatting.

I have this in the new rule section of conditional formatting

=IF(AND(ISBLANK(OFFSET(I4,0,-1)),(ISBLANK(OFFSET(I4,0,1))),(ISBLANK(I4)=FALSE)),TRUE,FALSE)

If conditional formatting would allow it I would simply change I4 to the entire range, I am very much confused as to how to format this cell to work with conditional formatting. (I4 is the first cell in the list)

Something else is that if I change I4 to I5 or something then moves all the highlighted cells around, and to top it off the first few cells which should obviously be highlighted aren't, even though the rest of the cells which should be highlighted are.

## Conditional Format With More Than One Rule

Aug 29, 2013

I have a table where Sales are in Column B and a % calculation is in Column E. I want to highlight the cells in green that are over 40% and that also meet the criteria where the sale in that row is above \$100.

In conditional formatting I tried to use =and(b4>100,e4>40%) but it did not do anything. I am also okay with using a nested if statement.

## Conditional Formatting To Return The Following Results If The Criteria Is Met

Jun 19, 2009

I have a conditional format that does not seem to be working for me. Cell B2 has a drop down optionSelect, No, Yes); Cell B3 is supposed to be conditionally formatted to return the following results if the criteria is met:

If B2 is equal to No or Yes then colour should become Yellow
If B3 is >0 then colour should become Blue

The problem is when B3 is greater than 0 it does not change the cell colour to Blue.

B3 Conditional Format #1 is =AND(ISTEXT(B2),B2<>"Select")
turn background to yellow
B3 Conditional Format #2 is =AND(ISNUMBER(B3),B3<>0)
turn background to blue

See attached for spreadsheet with conditional formats

## Return Value Based On Results Of Conditional Formatting

Apr 19, 2012

I have a report that shows when our company has shipments covered by inventory (although you are not seeing the conditional formatting in the table). Columns K:Q represent shipment dates and shipment amounts. Columns D:I represent inventory with Column J being the total inventory. The conditional formatting works to highlight the cells in K:O of when shipments are covered by inventory. I need to be able to return the date (Columns K:Q) for an item (Column B) when a shipment is not covered by inventory.

For example Row 154: all shipments are covered by the amount of inventory. A shipment of 3 on 04/24 is more than covered the 105 pieces of inventory. But for Row 170, the shipment for 480 pieces on 04/23/12 does not have enough inventory to cover.

The result I need to return for row 170 is that 480 pieces are due on 04/23/12 that are not covered.

What formula would I used to return that value?

## Check If A Value Is Between 2 Values From 2 Cell And Return A Value

Jun 11, 2014

Let's say i got something like this

A B C D Result
200 250 Apple 600 Melon
251 450 Orange 225 Apple
451 700 Melon 325 Orange
751 900 Grape 457 Melon

So based on my example above, I have those data from column A to column D Now, how do I check if the value from column D belong to which category from column C based on the column A and B?

225 -> 200~250 -> Apple
325 -> 251~450 -> Orange
etc.

The result will appear on "Result" Column
