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.
I need to color format several matrices of about 1000 rows each in order to find a pattern. Each row needs to be formatted on a color-scale so that the maximum value in each row has the darkest color and the minimum value has the lightest, while others are lighter according to their weight. It can be done on a single row, but it does not work for multiple rows at once. I have tried format copying and range options but it takes the maximum and minimum for the whole range rather than individual rows.
I'm wondering if it is possible to do it for multiple rows while the criteria of maximum and minimum applies to individual rows.
We have a spreadsheet that is sent to a manager weekly. The manager takes the sheets from 30+ individuals and copies all into a single workbook that is then distributed to a very large audience and reviewed weekly. In this workbook, I have created drop downs with conditional formatting - Low = Green, Medium = Yellow, Critical = Red. On the original workbook, this formatting works great, however, after the manager consolidates and redistributes all worksheets the Green shows Gray, Yellow is OK and Red shows Black.
I have a column that when I put info in it gives me a colour, now on this I have quit a few different labels, eg. AAG201, PRA001, 000010 and so on, now on my rule I have put in that if it is PRA* ,AAG* to be one colour and 0000* to be a colour. (this is working without a problem).
I have tried to get the rest of the row to be the same colour, but cannot get te rules to work, I do not know which rule to use to get this working.
I have four conditions that dictate font colors in column "d" of "sheet1" and am using the following Private Sub Font_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Set Myrange = Range("D2:D1000") For Each Cell In Myrange
If Cell.Value = "Started" Then Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 3 End If If Cell.Value = "Pending" Then Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 4 End If If Cell.Value = "On-going" Then Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 18 End If If Cell.Value = "Completed" Then Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 6 End If
Next End Sub
1. Does this code look valid? 2. Do I paste the code in a "module" or in a worksheet object? If I add this to a module, how does the code know to reference sheet1? 3. Is there a handy reference guide that shows color codes? If so, where can I get a copy.
I found in the web-site a great VBA code that replaces the "Conditional Formatting" option in Excel. The problem is that it changes the "fill color" and I also want to change the "font color".
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C4:C14")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case 0 icolor = 2 Case 1 icolor = 4 Case 2 icolor = 39 Case 3 icolor = 45 Case 4 icolor = 37 Case 5 icolor = 15 Case Else 'Whatever End Select
suppose I have the numbers 1-25 in a column. I want to color the numbers 1,4,7,10,13,16,19,22,25 green, color 2,5,8,11,...25 orange and color 3,6,9,12...25 red. I can not set up the conditional formatting formulas correctly.
I'm trying to make a tracking sheet of upcoming annual inspections for different pieces of equipment. I've already got a column set up listing the inspection due date. Using three conditional formats, the individual cells change color based on the amount of time until the inspection is due (green normally, yellow at 30 days out, red past due).
What I'd like to do is have the entire row of information change color based on the color of the cell the inpection due date is listed in. For ex. J6 lists the inspection date as 24-Feb-07 and is therefore red, I'd like A6-I6 and K6-P6 to change to red as well. And when the inspection is compleate and I manually change J6 to say 25-May-07, I'd like all of row 6 to change green based on the fact that J6 is already going to.
Currently I have used all 3 conditional formats to colour certain cells.
1) Colour whole row 'green' when 'complete' colum ="Y" 2) Colour todays date column black in the date table to easily define todays activities. 3) By entering start and end dates that contractors are required, I colour these selected dates in blue with a letter 'x' in the calendar area.
This can easily be seen from the sample sheet above. If you can adapt this for yourselves carry on.
I am also using a macro (found in these forums) to automatically change the colour of the contractors tab to certain colours when selected from the drop down selection box (enabling more than just 3 conditional formats)
What I would like to happen though, is that when item 3 above is performed (select a start and end date) the filled blocks, colour the same as the contractor colour, instead of the blue with the 'x'.
I have conditional formatting set to paint the cells a certain color if the values are >0 and a diff. color if they are <0. If i enter the value manually everything is fine but if a use a formula to do the calculation there is no formatting.
Is it possibe to change another cells color (Fill) based on what is placed in that cell? Example: A1 =if there is an "x" in A2 highlight A1 Green, but I have information in A1 also. Or if I had a different cell say= if there is an X in A1 Highlight A1 Green ect.. This key is to highlight a cell that I have information in based on a different cell having an X in it. If ther eis no X in the cell I have indicated, nothing needs to happen.
I have this SS that uses conditional formatting to color days in a calendar, dates are entered in columns B & C when the dates are entered then the days of the month highlight. Everything works great but I can not get the conditional formatting to work in column E. Column E would be January 1. If I enter Jan 1 in column B & Jan 30 in column C all the days highlight except Jan 1? I have uploaded the SS.
I would like to be able to put a value into a cell. By doing this I would like another cell next to it to turn a color. With that said, is it also possible to format a cell with several possible scenarios in one formula to be able to change the cell next to it a color?? Example is this lets say Cell B1 could have the letters, A B C D or E entered. So that the Cell A1 turns say the color Red.
I have a workbook with 4 sheets. Each sheet is set up the same. There are 4 columns. The column headings are Title, Item #, 2009 Retail Price, and Price changed from 2008 (in A, B, C and D respectfully).
I need to find all red text in column C and place a 'Y' in column D. If the text in column C is not red I want a 'N' in column D.
Now if data for a certain column is invalid, it will contain text as follows: "N/A". I want to color code the variation existing for the the three columns.
For example: If on row 3, 3A contains data, 3B contains data, but 3C contains N/A, i want the color of all three cells to be blue (not text color but fill color). If on row 4, 4A contains N/A, 4B contains N/A, and 4C contains data, I want the color of all three cells to be yellow. and the rest of the variations as well (5A contains Data, 5B contains N/A, and 5C contains data then all three green etc... etc..)
Of course logically the condition is strictly related to the N/A, and the rest of the data can contain text and numbers if it is not N/A.
Can the color coding be placed in RGB format as well? or can I create a cell with the fill color desired as a reference (in other words a legend that I can refer to when color coding the sheet)?
I have 10 rows of 6 numbers, all between 1 & 49, in the range A1:F10. I also have the range A20:AW20, which are all currently blank cells. When I type a number between 1 and 49 inclusive into the range A20:AW20, any number that matches it in the range A1:F1 I want the cell to fill in colour.
