Color Row Based On Fixed Cell & Relative Cells

Apr 15, 2008

My sales spreadsheets have a column which is turned to 100% when the order comes in (i.e. when the salesman gets it in his commission). I have applied conditional formatting to turn the whole row green when this happens (for ease of seeing which orders are in)

We also have a cell for the Purchase Order "number" (as these come from the customer, these can be a straight number sequence - "12345" or a mix of letters and numbers - "ABC12345"). My boss would like this cell to be red if the "order in" column is at 100%, but there is no PO number.

However, when I put in the formatting:
(1) =$K$15=1 (to turn the row green)
(2) Cell Value is equal to 0 (to turn the cell red)

it will apply (1) no problem, but will only apply (2) if (1) is false. (i.e. if (1) is true, the whole row goes green, with no red in the PO box.)

If I switch them round (i.e. have (2) first), then I get the formatting that I want (i.e. green row with a red box), but if (1) is false, I still get a red PO box.

What I need is a way of only applying (2) if (1) is true. (or any other way of only making the PO box red if the order is 100% but there is no PO number)

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.

Change Cell Color Relative To Another

Jan 2, 2008

I am in the middle of my ICT A-level coursework and im required to design a spreadsheet with a grade system (A to F). The students have individual target grades and recorded grades from tests and homework will also be dispalyed. How do i change the colour of the cells of tests or homework depending on what target grade the student has. I will have to do this for about a hundred students, so conditional formatting isn't really an option to do each individual cell. I'm not familiar with coding, but can learn. Not sure if a formula can solve this either.

I have used the search function of the forum for this question but have not found anything regararding this.

Nov 22, 2012

I want to highlight the cell of Column 'A' of excel only when it does not contain the text like "Verify", "Validate" or "Evaluate" in its content if, the value in corresponding cell of Column 'B' holds the value 'Y'. Secondly, the column 'A' can't contains the words like 'Verify', 'Validate' and 'Evaluate' if the corresponding cell in Column 'B' holds value 'N'. So just need to highlight those discrepancies if its there.

Change Color Of All Cells On Sheet Based Off Of One Cell Value

May 11, 2009

I want to change the fill color of all cells on my sheet, based on the value of one specific cell. In my sheet, I am using cell F1 as the trigger for the change. If the word Blue is in the cell, I want the background color of all cells to be Blue. Likewise for Red and Yellow as well. I don't believe conditional formatting can get this done, as all but the one cell (for this) will be empty.

Color Coding Cells Based On Data From Another Cell?

Mar 29, 2012

I have a worksheet set up where one column of data (we shall call it "A") is the result of several other columns' calculations (uses a formula referencing other cells). I have an entirely separate cell that also gets its data from other cells (we shall call this "B"). What I'm trying to do is make the shading of column "A" dependent upon data from column "B". For example, if column "B's" value is >24, I want column "A" to shade in red.

Format Color For Range Of Cells Based On Cell Value

Jul 1, 2008

I have been tasked with creating a Macro in order to help speed up a rather simple set of steps that are taken to format a spreadsheet each day. The last step, however, is not so simple. I would like to add a statement to the macro code that does that following:

Based on the value of a specific cell, color the cell and all corresponding cells within the same row (from colums A to AA) yellow. Essentially, cells in column D may have a the value "No Allocation", and if they do, I will need to format that cell yellow as well as all the cells within the same row for the colume range A to AA.

Format Cell Color Based On Others Cells Not Being Blank

Jan 9, 2008

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

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.

Change Cell Color Based On Cells Information Appearing On Another Sheet

Jan 6, 2014

I am trying to create a formula that will change the cell color in a range of cells in the row. I want the color to change based on the information in a particular cell appearing on a different sheet. What sheet the information is on determines the color the cells change to.

Example: I have 4 sheets I am working with. We will call them A; B; C; and D. I would like the color of cells A5-I5 on sheet D to change to red when the information in cell A5 from Sheet D shows up in any cell in column A on sheet A. If the information from cell A5 sheet D appears in any cell in column A from Sheet B then the color will be yellow, etc.

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.

Macro That Will Auto Color Multiple Cells Based On Data Displayed In One Cell

Jan 7, 2013

I am trying to find a way to write a Macro that will auto color multiple cells based on what data is displayed in one cell. The cell I want to reference is a vlookup cell.

Basically this is a part label. And depending what part is selected from the list my vlookup will display its position on a vehicle(i.e.. FR, FL, RR, RL, Etc..). So if vlookup comes back with FR I want the various cells on the label to be orange, etc..

ALSO: if there is a way to embed it so it does this automatically (rather than run the macro each time).

Excel 2010 :: Macro To Color Code Cells Based On Value In A Cell And Range In A Table

Dec 2, 2013

I am using Windows 7 and Excel 2010.

Is there a way to create a macro to color code a cell based on the value in a cell, and then look up a value in a table, then color code it based on where it fits into the table?

I have a table of values for about 30 projects. In column g - there is a CPI value (see bold column)

Example: Project ID
TCP Level
[Code] ......

Here is the table:

I have to color code a cell, base on the CPI and how it fits into the table below. So if the current Milestone is M2 or M3 and the CPI calculated is .14 the cell would be colored RED, if the CPI number is 2.01 for M2-M3 I would want cell to be colored Turquiose. If we were at Milestone M6 and the CPI was 2.01, it would be colored blue. If the CPI was .75 at Milestone M5, it would be colored Green

Return Relative Cell Based On Condition

Jun 6, 2009

I have 8 columns of data, the first 4 and the last four columns have the values which correspond to each other.. Here is an example:


So value 1.345164 corresponds to 321 and 1.28622 to 370. I need a function that will return a value from one of the VALUES columns which corresponds to the second smallest cell value from the NAMES columns. For example here the second smallest number in NAMES column is 325 so the function would return the corresponding value of 1.338358.

Color Cell Fonts Based On Text Color Of TextBox Controls On UserForm

Apr 11, 2008

I have got a userform with lots of controls,

One of the action's on a large group of the controls is the same but except for one number

here is an example

If TextBox107.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell. Offset(0, 53).Font.ColorIndex = 3
If TextBox108.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 54).Font.ColorIndex = 3
If TextBox109.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 55).Font.ColorIndex = 3

This makes a cell that correlates to the textbox red if the text in the textbox is red.

Now, I loads of these textboxes that all need to run the same code with just the Offset value one digit higher than the last and I was hoping I could create a loop to avoid a huge block of code but I can't work out how to make a constant that will +1 with each loop.

Also, can I assume that a loop will start with the control with the lowest number i.e. Textbox1 and then work its way through the rest of them in order?

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

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.

Excel 2010 :: How To Move Graph Based On Relative Cell Reference

Color Scale Conditional Formatting With Relative References

Oct 7, 2013

I'm having trouble with Color Scales within Conditional Formatting. I have a data set of commodity prices. In column A I have the name of the commodity, in column B I have the standard deviation of the price change of the commodity, and in Columns C-N I have the monthly % change in the commodity price. I want to conditionally format with Color Scales each row of price changes within Columns C-N based on each commodity's standard deviation (column B). If the price change is a one standard deviation or more decrease, I want the cell to be dark red; if the price change is less than a one standard deviation decrease, I want the cell to be a gradient of light red; if the price change is a one standard deviation or more increase, I want the cell to be dark blue; if the standard deviation is less than a one standard deviation decrease, I want the cell to be a gradient of light blue; and if the price change is 0, then I want the cell to be white.

I can achieve this perfectly by manually doing 3-Color Scale Conditional Formatting for each row, but it's very time-consuming. And Excel doesn't allow me to enter relative cell references when I'm doing the Color Scale Formatting. Is there a quick way that I can do this so that each row is color formatted differently?

I've attached an example file (there are many more rows within the original file) and formatted the first several rows manually as I want the final product to look.
