# Color Formula Result Based On Criteria

Jan 4, 2007

I would like to use formulas to display different results eg UNDERBUDGET - OK - OVERLIMIT etc. Ideally they would be shown using different colours & text size. I can't seem to change the colour/text size inside the formula for the different words - only for the whole cell.

## Formula For Students - Result Based On Multiple Criteria

Aug 5, 2014

How to formulate results of students in excel sheet.

From the attached picture (capture1.jpg) of the excel sheet - The rules of exams are:

1. if candidate scores 50% in all 4 papers, PASS and proceed to next year
2. if candidate scores 50% in 2 or 3 papers + borderline fail in 1 or 2 papers, VIVA VOCE exam for the borderline failed paper (Definition of borderline fail is candidate scoring 45 to 50 marks)
3. if candidate scores 50% in upto 2 papers + borderline fail in more than 2 papers, RE-EXAM
4. if candidate scores 45% in 2 or more papers, FAIL and repeat the year

The rules are in the attached picture flowchart.jpg

I am unsuccessful in writing a formula for such multiple criteria...

## Color Cells Based On Average Result

Aug 2, 2008

I have a cell with the following formula: =IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE(A2,C2,D2)),"",(AVERAGE(A2,C2,D2)). I'm using this formula because I want to average the selected cells, but if A2,C2, or D2 are blank I don't want it to return the # DIV/0! error, hence the "ISERROR" part.

Now... I want to conditionally format the cell with the above formula in it so that if it is equal to or greater than 80% it's green. Here's the problem, the conditional format colors the cell green if it is blank too. How do I stop that?
Below is an attached spreadsheet to show what I'm trying to do.

## Change Range Format & Color Based On Result Of Drop-Down Choice

Jul 6, 2009

I'm using Excel 2007.

I have a field with a "YES"/"NO" drop-down box. There are three fields below which have some default formatting (thick purple dot-dot-dash borders). When the drop-down field is "YES", those three fields should change borders to a single thin black bottom border line.

OK... so that's the setup. And I should note here that it does in fact format properly. However, the problem I'm having is that the screen does not update / repaint with the new formatting. The thick purple dot-dot-dash borders remain, for the most part.

If I page down, then page back up, the new formatting appears just fine. When I switch from "YES" to "NO", again, the formatting changes, but the screen does not update/repaint so the only way to see the new formatting is to again... page up and then page down again.

I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to force the screen to repaint/update so that my users will see the new formatting without having to page up/down.

## Formula That Returns Result & Font Color Of Referenced Cell

Apr 3, 2008

I have 2 tables, 1 beneath the other - table 1 columns represent date ranges and their values. Columns and their data are alternating color coding. Table 2 references, by means of array formula, this data - IS it possible to include the font color as a result?

## Return Result Based On Criteria

Oct 27, 2006

if Cell F42 contains 50%, then my fomula returns "wrong"

=IF(AND(0%<F42,F42<50%),"F",IF(AND(50%<F42,F42<60%),"D",IF(AND(60%<F42,F42<70%),"C",IF(AND(70%<F42,F42<80%),"B",IF(AND(80%<F42,F42<100%),"A","wrong")))))

how do I get the formula calculate correctly?

## Result Based On Two Criteria Lookup

May 28, 2008

See the attached file. I think index and match may help me having done a search several times in these forums, but having been trying to do this for several hours I am just struggling to understand each part of the formula unfortunately. I have a list of data (cellsA1 to C33) which I need to use as my source for the information that is displayed in cell I2 based on the two selections made in cells F2 and G2.

I can't use filter and data sort in this situation - I am creating a spreadsheet for someone who truly knows nothing about excel, so I need this to be as simple as pointing and clicking at cells F2 and G2 and the formula doing all other work. Is it possible to do what I am asking for (hopefully the fact that peoples' names are repeated and months are repeated won't cause a problem?

## Return Result Based On Multiple Criteria

Sep 19, 2009

I have been trying this for hours but to no avail.

I have a table with 4 columns headers
Name, Amount, Loc and Code

The name may look like ABC 1, ABC 2....
The Loc may be in US, GB...
and the Code may be AA, BB

I need to return a result "Y" if the sum of the amount is > 100
and "N" if the sum of the amount < 100 based on the conditions
of the following :if

1) Name is the same entity, such as ABC 1 and ABC 2 and
2) Loc is the same, US..and
3) Code is the same

I have attached a sample to illustrates the result

## Sum Result Of Formula On A Range Of Cells That Meet Criteria

May 20, 2013

Is there a way I can sum the result of a formula on a range of cells that meet a criteria? For example, I need to sum the difference of only the cells that are >46. (a1-46)+(b1-46)+(c1-46)...+(g1-46).

In this case the result I'm looking for is on row 2:

Is this possible to calculate in 1 cell only (h1)?

## Macro To Color Cells Based On Criteria

Jul 27, 2009

Column DColumn EColumn FTarget %DifferenceCash4%5.12%Large-Cap8.5%1.73%Commodities4%-1%

I need to color code Col F based on the following criteria:

If F2/E2>20%, then shade pink else no color. I only care about the absolute values. The 20% number can change depending on the category. So for commodities, the limitation is 30%. Like that I have a list of about 20 asset classes, 14 of which have the 20% constraint, rest are either 25% or 30%. I would like the cell color to be updated each time I import a file. Also I have other conditional formatting on Col F (like red color if negative number) so I don't know if another conditional format will work on the same cells?

## Return 1,2 Or 3 Based On Result Of Formula

## Select Row Based On Cell Criteria Remove All Formulas From Row And Change Fill Color

Apr 23, 2014

I have a worksheet that when a row changes based on the value of column B, I want to remove all of the formulas found in the row but keep the existing values, and then change the color of the row.

In the sample file attached, when the value is "Closed", that row will keep the existing values and then it gets grayed out. Rows that are still marked "Open" need to retain the formulas in case other information changes.

I have tried copy/paste special using autofiltering but that doesn't work because of the hidden lines. This file changes on a daily basis and I need a quick way to update the file.

## Conditional Format Based On Formula Result Being A Whole Number

Dec 6, 2012

I'm looking to conditional format a cell/cells based on whether a formula result returns a whole number or not.

I don't want to include the formula in the sheet itself, just have that as the formula in the condition.

The formula will be along the lines of:

=IF(SUM(BB10/BA10)"a whole number",TRUE,FALSE)

My problem is, is that I don't know who to refer to "a whole number" in Excel formula language.

## How To Move Data From One Worksheet To Another Based On Formula Result

Jun 20, 2013

I have a formula sheet that uses an IF statement to determine if one columns data is bigger than another. Out of the 300 or so rows there are approx 20 that come back as yes (this is in column A) and the rest are blank

What I would like to do, is for the 20 or so rows, I would like to pull out (copy) columns B, J and L and put them into worksheet 2. Preferably without any gaps in the rows or columns.

I hope this is enough information, I am using MS excel version 2010 although I think the people who will ultimately be using it are on an earlier version.

## Formula That Returns A Result Based On All Dates In Column A

Feb 15, 2007

I need a formula to count cells based on the date, so that I can have a blank cell when the answer is 0. I am adding values cumulative and future cells need to be blank because I have a graph that has a trend line and I don't want the trend line to fall off at the end. I also don't want to have to go back to this every month and update it.

## Formula: Return Result Based On Other Cell Values

Sep 27, 2006

I have a spreadsheet that give me the percentage difference of two cell say a1 and a2 (=a2/a1)[format as % two decimal places]. The result is on say b5 as a %[format as % two decimal places]. Now on B6 I want to do this:

if B5 is >3.01% then b6 =" Market Test Required"
if B5 is +3% then b6 =110
if B5 is +2% then b6 =106
if B5 is +1% then b6 =103
if B5 is 0% then b6 =100
if B5 is -1% then b6 =96
if B5 is -2% then b6 =93
if B5 is -3% then b6 =90
if B5 is >-3.01% then b6 ="Market Test Required"

So on and so on.... I would really appreciate your help on this issue.

I have used excel for some time now but not with complex formulas or any vb.

## Auto Hide Column Based On Formula Result

Aug 5, 2008

I have an Excel workbook with multiple sheets. In one sheet, there are many columns that automatically get hidden based on cells values (=1) in another sheet as I type. I use this

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "\$C\$7" And Target.Value = 1 Then
Sheets("Stakes").Range("E:E").EntireColumn.Hidden = True
Else
If Target.Address = "\$C\$7" And Target.Value <> 1 Then
Sheets("Stakes").Range("E:E").EntireColumn.Hidden = False
End If
End If
End Sub

Recently I had to change the second sheet that instead of manually entered values, formula results appear in cells. And the above code doesn't work anymore, columns are always stay unhidden. How can I achieve what I want? I need columns get hidden if formula results =1.

## Convert Result Of Formula To \$ From HNL Based On Chose In Validation Column

Feb 20, 2014

We receive payments in either USD or HNL. I want to be able to have a final price (last column) that puts all prices in USD. I have a reference cell on a separate worksheet (drop down inputs) that we will use to store the data for validations and the conversion rate. We use one conversion rate for all transactions for a fiscal year, so only need to update once a year. Not sure how to make this work.

## Automatically Format Range Based On Formula Result Of Cells

May 16, 2009

The following code works perfect but the "change" event is only triggered when working directly on intersect range. Tried using the "calculation" event but could not figure it out. This is what I want:

1) To replace the code provided below using the calculation event
2) To only trigger the event for the row(s) where the new value was generated, not for the whole "For Each" statement
3) To use one single code for all worksheets, instead of copying the code in every working worksheet on the workbook, if feasible
4) And I would like a "second alternative", where the user of the workbook can click on a button and trigger the event on every row on the workbook that has a non empty cell within the intersect range, assuming that the intersect range column is the same for all worksheets

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim c As Range, d As Range, fc As Long, bc As Long, bf As Boolean
Set d = Intersect(Range("I:I"), Target)
If d Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
For Each c In d
Select Case UCase(c)
Case "C"
fc = 1: fb = True: bc = 4
Case "O"
fc = 2: fb = True: bc = 3
Case "D"
fc = 2: fb = True: bc = 46
Case "G"
fc = 2: fb = True: bc = 5..................

## Formula Calculation To Be 1 Of 2 Values & Increment Cell Based On Result

May 24, 2008

I'm quite a novice at Excel. I have a column of values that I sum as follows;

A
0
0
0
0
0

0 <----------------sum of A1:A5

A formula may change one of the values in the above column to a '1' which means the sum will become '1'. The sum can only be '1' or '0' and only one value in the column will ever change. I need to add a value of 2 to another cell (say, C1) when the sum of A1:A5 changes from a value of '0' to '1'. I know this will probably involve the worksheet change event but am having a problem implementing it.

## Multiple IFs To Display One Result Based On Multiple Criteria

Mar 18, 2014

I've got a matrix combining actions on the left hand side (Col A) and owners on Cols B to F. I have drop down list for each action/owner combo: N/A, OK, KO, TBD.

Owner #1
Owner #2
Owner #3
Owner #4
Owner #5
Results

Action #1
OK
TBD
N/A
N/A
N/A
OK

[code]....

I would like to create a formula in Col G that does the following:If any of the values in columns B to F equals OK, then OKIf any of the values in columns B to F equals KO, then KO I've been tinkering with multiple IFs and quite rightly got bogged down as too many criteria to take into account...

## Fill In The 3 Criteria Fields, Calculate The Result, Copy The Result, And Place It Into The Correct Place On The Table

Oct 19, 2006

I have a macro that imputs data from an external database and puts it into a temporary worksheet. This data has 3 columns (ID, Date, Amount). I am then making another sheet which has X number of tables (one for each ID), with the years being the column headings, and months being the row headings. ie.

| ID X
| +------+------+------+--->
| | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Jan | \$100 | \$250 | \$300 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Feb | \$200 | \$300 | \$200 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Mar | \$300 | \$250 | \$100 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Sum | \$600 | \$800 | \$600 |
| +------+------+------+--->

| ID Y
| +------+------+------+--->
| | 1999 | 2000 | 2001 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Jan | \$100 | \$250 | \$300 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Feb | \$200 | \$300 | \$200 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Mar | \$300 | \$250 | \$100 |
+------+------+------+------+--->
| Sum | \$600 | \$800 | \$600 |
| +------+------+------+--->

Currently I have a few hidden fields for the DSUM Criteria. I start making the tables. And then filling in table based off of the month and year. Doing so I need 3 criteria:
>= First Day of the Month
<= Last Day of the Month
= ID #

The problem is it takes Excel too long to fill in the 3 criteria fields, calculate the result, copy the result, and place it into the correct place on the table. Is there another way to get this data into the correct tables faster? Instead of using DSUM?

## Refernceing Cells: Formula That Looks At A Cell On A Front Sheet, And Then Returns The Contents Of That Cell As The Result If It Meets The Criteria

Apr 5, 2009

I have a formula that looks at a cell on a front sheet, and then returns the contents of that cell as the result if it meets the criteria. So for example this formula would be in Cell A1 on Sheet2 IF(SHEET1!A1,"New",Sheet1!A1,"-")

This formula is always in the same cell (different sheet) as the cell that it is looking at, down 1500 rows. Instead of having the formula named for each cell is there anyway to ask excel to 'look at this cell but on this other sheet'.
e.g IF(Sheet1!"This Cell" etc). That way no matter what cell you put the formula in it is always referencing the correct cell for the formula?

## VLOOKUP Formula Dragdown Copies Previous Cell Result Instead Of Unique Result

Jun 10, 2014

When I drag my VLOOKUP formula down a column in Excel 2010, the return value copies the formula result from the original VLOOKUP formula result. For example, if the first VLOOKUP returns a value of 0.5, I expect to see 0.5 or 1 in the cell below that one. However, I get 0.5 which is not the expected result for the cell below.

When, I click the fx on the cells below, the expected return values appear in the formula result. After I click OK, the expected formula results updates and now appears in the cell.

I'm not sure what is causing this issue. My computer was updated recently from an old machine to a new one. I have never experienced this issue before.

## Result Based On Existance: If Coulmn Contains A Anywhere Then The Result Should Be A

Dec 4, 2009

I have 4 categories A, B, C & D. These are in desending importance, means A is most important and D is least important. Now there could be many A, B, C & Ds listed in a column. The challange is if coulmn contains A anywhere then the result should be A. If A is absent, then search for B, if present anywhere then display the result as B. It doesn't matter how many times A or any character is listed in column. I am attaching a sheet for better explanation.

## Color The Result

Dec 21, 2008

Is there a way I can color the result of a formula? The background or the text. If it is positive (exceeds the goal) It will be Dk green or the bkgd cell color will be Dk green. If the total hasn't made the goal the color would be red.
Am I able to add that function/formula to the existing formula ie=ABS(SUM(B82,B93,B104,B115,B126,B137)-6000))
