Color Blank Cells In A Row Between 2 Cells With Specific Number

Jan 31, 2013

I have a similar question regarding coloring of empty cells between two cells with specific numbers as posted in below thread : [URL] .....

This is exactly what I want. But here I have some problem with formula.

=COUNTIF(A1:Z1,1)=1

Above formula could pick cell value 1 and color the empty cells in a row between the cells having value=1. But if I want to use the same formatting for other numbers like 2 or 3 it doesn't work.

For example in row(A1:Z1) I have A1=1, D1=1, and F1=2, K1=2, and O1=3, U1=3

I required multiple conditional formatting that could color the cells based on values first from A to D then from F to K and finally from O to U.

I'm using above formatting it works with cells having values 1 but its not working for 2, 3 or any other cells values.

I have already tried replacing 1 in above formula with 2 and 3 but it doesn't work.

I am using Excel 2010 and basically i am trying to fill a range of cell with a green color if any value was enter in a specific cells. Example: I would like to fill range: A10:c13 with a green color (regardless of the cells content in this range) if a value was entered in cell C10 or C11 or C12 or C13.

I've tried conditional formatting but unfortunately I'll have to apply formatting for every cell and for a range of over hundred cells is not efficient.

creating this code or fomatting in my excel file. I want to fill color in cells between the two cells that has value of say "1" or anything in it. There will be only 2 numbers at any time in any row that has the value in it. All other cells will have value of "0" or can be changed to empty cells. So, the formula should check from say range "A3 to Z3" in row and for example it gets the first numbered cell in C3 then it start filling color from C3 cell until it reaches the other cell in that range that has the number in it. Say the row "A3 to Z3" has 1 number in C3 and other in cell H3 then it should fill color between this two cells from C3,D3,E3,F3,G3 and H3.

I have a spreadsheet that contains given answers to a multiple choice test. I want to count the number of times each possible answer has been chosen at the bottom of the column. I have tried to use COUNTIF and that works fine to give me the number times each answer has been chosen but there is just one annoying thing. If the given answer hasn't been chosed by anyone, a "0" is automatically entered into the cell. This tends to really clutter up the spreadsheet and I would prefer for the cell to be left blank if the answer hasn't been chosen by anyone.

The closest I can come up with is: {=IF(D1:D10="","",COUNTIF(D1:D10,"A"))} but unless the answer "A" is chosed in D1, the cell remains blank.

If "A" is chosed in D1, then the formula works and counts all the rest of the cells that have "A" as an answer.

I'm trying to develop a new daily timesheet for my production workers, where non-production items are recorded in 15 minute intervals. The user would put in "Clock in" by the corresponding time, and the same for "Clock out" at the end of the day. Any non-production items will be type in next to their appropriate time. Since clock in and clock out times will vary, I need to set up a formula that searches the array of cells for the day, finds the "Clock in" and "Clock out" values, and counts any blank cells in between them. Basically the blank cells will equal production time, and the result of the Count function will be multiplied by 0.25 to get the hours.

I am having a very difficult time finding a way to set the "Clock in" and "Clock out" cells as the range for the Count function, because it won't always be the same cells. What would be the best way to automatically have excel find the cells containing these values and set them as the range criteria for a Count function?

The formula at the bottom was one of my initial attempts, but it didn't work. I took out the '=' for the screenshot, so that wasn't the problem.

i had a worksheet with data running into 30,000 rows.i want to color the blank cells according to the item type;

For instance, if the item type is LIBRARY BOOKS;the column D(Reference 1) should not be empty or Blank.It should contain the word LIB.similiar for other types. I want excel to color the blank cell depending upon the item type.can i achieve this using normal worksheet functions or VBA is necessary.

How to be able to count cells with a specific color (green) and a specific value (8210) for example the sum of the info I am needing below should be 2 even though there are technically 3 - 8210 cells.

i would like to be able to fill color numerous rows of cells that have a number in one of the columns that is either above a certain number or below a certain number.

example 3-Nov 5 H 5-Nov -3 V 6-Nov 4 V 9-Nov 12 V 10-Nov -1 H

in this example i want to fill color any row that in column 2 has a number less than -1 and greater than 4.

If I have cells in my worksheet filled with yellow color, is it possible to count them based only on this criterion (fill color). They might or might not be in the same column.

I need to count the grey coloured cells in a column based on the value in a different column (Column I has the team that the person is in). I already have a code from a previous thread to count the coloured cells (below) but this doesn't work when using an array formula. I have also tried just selecting the cells I need it to count (the people within the specific team), but the formula doesn't work unless the range uses adjacent cells...

I have a spreadsheet with 12 coloums. In the last coloum are the ords "yes", "no", or is empty (null?). I need to find a way to have each row that contains the word "no" or is empty to be highlighted in red font and bold type. When the word "yes" is typed then the font is black and the type in normal. This allows me to see at a glance what orders have not been picked up or have problems.

I know that I need to use Conditional Formatting, but I can't get the formula code correct.

This is what I need it to do:

If cell A2 is populated (not blank) AND cell B2 is blank, then cell B2 to be highlighted in bright red fill.

If cell A2 is populated (not blank) and cell B2 is also populated (not blank), then leave formatting as per normal

If cell A2 is blank then leave formatting as per normal

Basically, as soon as someone types anything into cell A2, cell B2 to turn red. Then once they have input something into cell B2, the red highlight can disappear. The inputs will be text, not numbers, so I can't use </>

I have tried varying circumstances of IFs, ANDs, NOTs, ISBLANKs etc and I can't crack

1. Search workbook for a specific values and then to color that cell with a corresponding color.

2. Search workbook for a specific values and then color other cells underneath (the next 3 merged rows after the cell containing the value) with a corresponding color.

Is there a way for me to enter numbers in my cells and have them a specific color? I want all my odd numbers to be bold red with a yellow highlighted cell, my even Numbers to be green with a gray color cell.

I want it to look like this 7 and 8. I can not seem to find anything to show the high light but basically the red 7 will be in a yellow box and the green in a light gray. I will be entering rows and rows of anywhere from 4 to 8 digits

I want to color the cells for some specific texts in RED, and some in BLUE and some in GREEN.

For Eg: I want to color the cells in RED, which contains below specific texts in a sheet. UNIX LINUX MS OFFICE POWER POINT....like this for nearly 100 specific texts.

and I want to color the cells in BLUE, which contains below texts in a sheet. JAVA .NET SQL MSDOS....like this for nearly 100 more specific texts.

If i create a rule in conditional formatting for each text,I have to create nearly 400+ rules for my task now, which is not possible.

i am trying to Put a specific value i,e "NO Deliveries" in blank Cells in the same row based on value in 1st cell of the Row which has a fixed value . note:the columns and rows are dynamic for example: I want to put the value "no Deliveries" in cell C because its blank.

I need a VBA to delete rows with blank cells within columns F - AZ Columns A - E contain headers but also need to be deleted if cells in columns F -AZ are blank.

I highly doubt it but might as well ask, for example if I have 10 cells some with odds and some with even can I make all odds have a certain FILL color and evens be another FILL color? Is there a formula for such thing possible?

I am using Excel 2010 and I am trying to average the amount of days in a month to a daily average per person in my worksheet.

Total sales per person A5 = 10 - This is the Grand total per person for column A A6 =4 A7=6

Daily average per person C5=2.6 - Average for all persons here C6=2.0 C7=3.0

The formula I am using is:

=(SUMPRODUCT($A$6:$A$15,C6:C15))/$A5

Which gives me an answer of 2.6 in cell C5 as shown above which is what I am wanting.

Please note that my cell range for my staff goes from 6-15 for both Column A and C where the other cells are blank in both columns.

My question is, If I was to clear all the data in both Columns A6:A15 and C:6:C15, cell C5 would return to a #VALUE. How to I change the formula so that if the cells were Blank, cell C5 would also be blank until I enter data for each person again?

I got an excel sheet were in column A i have listed a few names and in column B I got their respective results (numbers) with a background color.

I want to insert a function in such a way that when their numbers exceed a certain number the background color changes from for example blue to green. so >1200 = blue background color 1200-1350 = red < 1350 = green

Try this formula. Array formulas will have curly brackets {} emcompassing the ENTIRE formula. You do not add these, you Enter the formula with Ctrl+Shift+Enter and Excel will add them (details: Array formulas). Many more Excel Formulas

Some of the cells end up with nothing in them. Columns E and H are the differenced of C & D and G & F respectfully. The problem is that some of the cells in E and H state #VALUE! because there isn't any data in the other columns (C2 is blank, D2 is 24, E2 is #VALUE!). If I update C2 with 0 then I receive the correct answer in E2 of -24.

I want to have a macro auto fill all blank cells (even though there is the formula in them there isn't data) with a "0". I am using the below code and it is Compile error: Type mismatch at the "True" part of the code.

Sub FindEmptyCellAutoFill() Dim rFound As Range

With ActiveSheet.Range("C:D", "F:G") Do Set rFound = . Find(What:=" ", LookIn:=xlValues) If rFound Is True Then AutoFillValue "0" If rFound Is False Then Exit Do Loop End With

Any method for colour highlighting a row (specific number of cells) as and when any cell of that row is selected, and return to normal when deselected.

i have a list of 100 product codes in row b2:cw2, colum A contains dates in the month, yesterdays first and then each previous day before that going down, and the columns B:CW are the number of each particular product sold on that day.

I'd like to insert a formula in row 1 which will look down each column and count the number of blank cells from B3 to the first cell to contain a value, i.e. the number of days since this particular product was sold.
