Color Cells Based On Adjacent Cells Being Empty & Add Text

Apr 2, 2008

Im trying to make my life a bit easier, by adding a few macros and formulas to the spreadsheet (Everything was done completely manually before I got here!!!).
What I would like to do is take two columns, which contain a start and end time for work shifts, and colour them GREEN once I have entered a name in the Worker column (Along side the two with the time), and also to fill a cell with a Yes or a No. Im aware of auto conditioning, and Ive tried to have a play to get this to work, but I just cant work it out.
I have posted a link to an image which shows what I want. I hope I've explained it well enough!

Fill Empty Column Cells With Reference To Adjacent Cells

Aug 11, 2008

I would like a macro that when run, finds empty cells in a column within the used range and fills them with the same formula in the other cells in the same column but relative to the row.

I have a basic understanding of VBA so if someone can set me on the right track i'll have a go myself as i appreciate this would take a while to write out from scratch.

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.

2003 - Merging Four Adjacent Cells With Text And/or Blank Cells

Jun 14, 2008

I am trying to merge text, in four adjacent cells in the same row (say cells A1,A2,A3 and A4), into a single cell (say cell A5).

I would like a comma or full stop and then a space between each item merged (cell A5).

The text to be merged may appear in any one of the four cells (cells A1 to A4). Those cells without text are blank.

Only where all 4 cells are blank, will I need cell 'A5' to indicate this.

The formula needs to be relative as I will need to copy the formula down the spreadsheet so that it applies to additional rows.

I am having a problem in selecting empty cells were some of them are numbers... does anyone knows how to filter the numbers as well. In one column I want to mark with colors the empty cells, in this column we can find cells with text and others with numbers, so when my marcos arrives to those that have numbers I have an Error message.

Sub Colour()

For j = 4 To dercell_conver
If Cells(j, 9) = "" And Cells(j, 9) <> "#" Then
Range("I" & j).Select

.ColorIndex = 38
.Pattern = xlSolid

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting Empty Cells Based On Full Cells?

Nov 17, 2011

Working in Excel 2007. I am using excel for a data log (basically) and want it to format all empty cells in a row yellow if there is data in column A

Basically, If i have a value in A2, I want any empty cell between B2-G2 to be filled in yellow (as an idicator to the inputter that the cell needs to be completed).

there is already conditional formatting on these cells, which i want to maintain for the non-empty cells. I also have "0" as a value, so I couldn't use the basic conditional formatting setting it =0, it highlighted cells with $0.00, which i do not want.

Lock Empty Cells In Range Based On Other Cells Content

Apr 18, 2008

I am trying to lock the unused cells in 32, 2 column by 7 row named ranges, based on whether or not two cells, above each range are equal or less than each other. In other words while one of the cells is less than or equal to the second cell all cells in the range below should be unlocked, as soon as that condition is no longer true the blank cells need to be locked.

I am trying to use this in the Workbook_Sheetcalculate so that the macro will run automatically.

Make Formula Cells Empty Rather Than Empty Text

Apr 17, 2008

Is it possible to make a cell "really" blank/empty based on an If statement? For instance:

=if(a1>10,a1,"")

Has a value_if_false of "". But Excel interprets this a bit differently than a cell that never had anything typed into it.

So if you have a column full of this formula copied down, and hit <control+down arrow>, you will go straight to the bottom and skip over all rows. Whereas if you have a column with values and empty cells alternating and hit <control+down arrow>, you will only skip the empty cells and go to the next value. Excel treats the conditionally empty cells as if they have a value, when it comes to this type of navigation. This holds even if you copy and paste "Values" for the cells over the formulas.

Is there any way to tell Excel to make the cells truly empty?

Setting Color Of Range Based On Adjacent Cell Color

Nov 1, 2009

This is probably elementary, but I'm struggling and would appreciate any help as I have very little excel VBA experience to draw from.

I have assembled code which changes the cell color based on a value change in Column A. Column A will contain many different groups of repeating values. This code works well and and I have been able to figure out how to limit the number of colors to only 2. The end result is each set of similar values in column A is visually grouped by one of two alternating colors.

The number rows in the data set is variable as the data set is extracted from SAP. The number of columns is fixed.

What I want to do now is set the cell color in columns B through F the same color that was assigned to the row in column A. So if cell A3 is set to colorindex = 6, then I want to set the range of cells B3 to E3 to the same color.

Here is the code I am using to set the color of the cells in Column A:

Change Font Color Based On Adjacent Cell Color

Apr 18, 2008

I have two columns. The first one (A) contains cells that have different Fill colors. The second column (B) contains text adjacent to the colored cells. I am trying to change the color of the text in the second column (B) to the corresponding color in the adjacent cell in the first column (A). I don't think conditional formating works well in this situation. I believe the solution would be some sort of macro.

Color Cells Based On Multiple Conditions Of Different Cells

Jan 15, 2008

Im trying to change color in cell B9 according to different conditions in Cell C9 (than on b10 according to c10 and so long until necessary - probably will be around 2000 lines). Since there are more than 3 conditions and in two cases condition depends on the color of the C Column, I can not use conditional formatting. Ive searched and found similar forums here, but since Im ignorant in VBA code, I couldnt manage to make adjustments. So if you can help me with the code, I would really appreciate it!

Condition and Results required would be:

IF column C = S than on Column B = color cell light blue with white border
IF column C = P than on Column B = color cell Green with white border
IF column C = A than on Column B = color cell Yellow with white border
IF column C = L than on Column B = color cell Red with white border
IF column C = C than on Column B = color cell Dark Blue with white border
IF column C = than on Column B = color cell white
IF column C = V and has white background than on Column B = color cell white
IF column C = V and has a Dark Grey background than on Column B = color cell Dark Grey

I dont know if the last two are feasible.

Make Text Flow Into Adjacent Cell Without Merging Cells Or Wrapping Text?

Jul 19, 2014

I have some text in a cell, which is longer than the width that I am going to make that cell. When I don't wrap the text, it cuts it off at the end of the cell.

Since each column represents a day in a calendar, it would be incorrect to merge the two cells, but I don't want the text hidden, since I need to print the final product.

It is non-numeric text, and i've pasted --> values to remove formula issues.

Color Column Charts Based On Font Color Data Cells

Oct 27, 2009

I have attached the relevant spreadsheet for which I need to alter the color of the columns based on Site number ( Sheet 1). % Mortality will be represented in the Y-Axis, and the Site numbers would be on the X-Axis. All columns (% Mortality) except one will be of the same color, and the one of a different color will indicate a specific site. As an example, site 86 is colored differently. The way I require the chart to look is shown on Sheet 1.

After reading through some great posts on Ozgrid, I managed to do this using conditional formatting (Sheet 2), but that sort of falls short because I am required to add a data table to the chart, and the parameter that is indicated by the column bars happens to appear twice in the data table.

I was wondering if this can be automated maybe using VBA, but with the possibility of simply matching the color of columns with the font color of respective entry in the data series.

Color Cells Based On Difference Between Two Cells

Jun 3, 2008

I have a 2 lists of manually entered values where the values in each row are related. They are related in the sense that if the difference between them is equal to or less than, a given amount then the cell containing one value is colored Blue. e.g.

COl A holds Value x while COl B holds value y. I need to check which value is entered in columns A and B and if a given difference or greater exists colour the cell in COl B. For example the relationship relevant to a COL A value of 21.0 is 11.0.

So, I enter the following;

A1 B1

21.0 13.0 <----------------No color Blue

I enter new values

21.0 9.5 <----------------B1 is blue.........................

Copy Cells From Column To Adjacent Column If Bold Or Empty

May 20, 2008

I have a worksheet on which the data is already grouped. At the top of each group is a row that contains only the group name. Since the rest of that row is blank, I want to use a blank cell on that row as a reference, then copy the group name to a newly created column, then fill that column down to the next group.

The goal is to create a column that contains the group name, rather than just having the group name as a " header" at the top of each group.

Color Cells Based On Color Of Preceeding Cell

Nov 18, 2007

I am looking for a very simple script that will achieve the following:

On the clicking of a button, Select and shade in a cell yellow, delete the yellow shading of the previous cell. The shading & selection should move up a column of cells, 1 at a time, in the following order:

From B10 to B9, then B9 to B8, B8 to B7 etc until the selection and shading is at B2. Once it is at B2 subsequent clicks will simply keep it at B2 (the top). Thus after 8 clicks the shading & selection should travel from B10 to B2, with only 1 cell being shaded yellow and selected at any one time.

Macro To Color Cells Based On Their Font Color

Jun 18, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that i download from the net daily, which is seperated into columns of information.

I want to be able to look down a column and mark a cell in a seperate column if the cell font text is red.

For example looking down column A ... if the font text of a1 is red then mark the cell background colour of T1 red - if a2 text colour is red then mark the cell T2 red .... etc etc.

If the font colour in a1 or a2 ... etc etc is any other colour then do nothing.

I have 5 columns I wish to look down and mark in 5 seperate columns - I have tried to do this by conditional formating but don't know the fomula for checking font colour.

Combining Cells Based On Value Of Adjacent Cell.

Jan 11, 2009

I have been reading through trying to find a similar post but the nearest i could find was one dealing with numbers rather than text. This is how the workbook looks.
Column A contains a list of numbers based on vehicle types. Column B contains a list of vehicle names.

A B
1 Car,
1 Taxi,
2 Bus,
2 Lorry,
3 Skateboard,
3 Bike,
1 Motorcycle,


What I am looking for is the best way to combine the text from column B depending on the value of column a. the finished results would then end up as: "Car,Taxi,Motorcycle,", or "Bus,Lorry," etc. This is just a simple list.. The one I am working with has around 2500 entries. I have been trying to do this using the CONCATENATE function and IF statement but it's just not working..... My head is ready to explode
