## Row Color Depending On Cell Value

## Color After Depending On 1st Value In A Cell

Jul 3, 2009

I have another macro request.

I would like to ‘grey out’ a certain qty of cells depending on the 1st number in another cell. So 1st of all it would have to check in column B to see if there is any data and then check for the first number in that cell (there will be many numbers in the cells but we only need the 1st one (Ex.: B3 = “3 / 8 & 8”).

Then it should start counting from column D the found number of cells multiplied by 2.

Ex.: if Cell B3 contains “3 / 8 & 8” it will count 3 x 2 = 6 (3 cells x 2 = 6 cells)

Then, if after that count (now at I3), in the next cell over (J3) if the is data in the cell above (J2) then it should apply an Interior.ColorIndex of 15 for the next cells until there is no data in the cells above (if nothing after K2 the grey will be applied to cells J3 & K3 only).

## Changes The Cell Color Depending On How Many Clicks

Mar 13, 2009

The code changes the cell color depending on how many clicks you give it.
The code it self works fantastic but the problem i have is if i manually unlock the sheet every time i click any where in sheet it locks it again.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error GoTo Error
Dim I As Integer, I1 As Integer, ws1 As Worksheet

Set ws1 = Worksheets("36hr Plan")
ws1.Unprotect "muppeticity"

I1 = 40
For I = 5 To 25 Step 5
For I1 = 22 To 204 Step 13
Offset1 = 0
If Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1, I)) Is Nothing _
Or Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1 + 1, 5)) Is Nothing _
Or Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1 + 2, 5)) Is Nothing Then.............

## Highlighting Cell Color Depending On Text

Sep 15, 2014

See attached work book, it is an mot booking system that is all working fine except for one thing that I don't know how to change.

At the moment if you double click a cell in the test type column it enters the required data and turns the cell green highlighting the length of time and values this is all good but I am wanting the ones that start with n-side to turn yellow just so that we can see our own internal tests easily. It is control in the coding not formatting . Is there a way this can be done?

## Fill Color Depending On Content Of Other Cell

May 1, 2008

I have a template I have been asked to amend and I know I need to use Conditional Formatting I just can't crack the formula I need to use. Cell A2 will have either "CD" or "CW" or "IN" input into it

When user inputs either "CD" or "CW" into cell A2, I want cell G2 to have "Margin Movement" automatically displayed. When user inputs "IN" into cell A2, I want cell F2 to have "MV" automatically displayed, and I want cell G2 to be coloured in bright red fill. Then user is to go to cell G2 and input some text as a description, and I want the red fill to disappear once they have input something in there.

I thought I had it licked using IF statements for the "Margin Movement" and the "MV" cells, but I can't get the conditional formatting to work - I assume this is because the cells aren't technically "blank", as they have IF statements in them.

## Changing Empty Cell Background Color Depending On Different Cell Value

Aug 7, 2014

I'm trying to create a tag with a color border. What I desire is to fill the BLANK cells around the tag, A1:D1 + D1:D19 + A1:D19 + A1:19 in a certain color based on the text value of the cell B11. There are 5 different values, such that if the B11 read Red Sox - the boarder is going to be red, if it reads Houston Astros it will be dark blue, etc..

I have a similar problem with changing the color of the cell based on the month. So regardless of the year, 2014, 2015, 2016, etc... If I use MONTH() function I can just get numbers from 1-12. I want Cell C16-C18 to be certain color depending the date entered in cell C17 such that for each quarter, months 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 they are different color.

I have had no luck with conditional formatting (and I also believe that it is good up to 3 cases only). I am decent in logic/programming language but have little knowledge with macro notation and especially how to run them in excel 2013. I do know how to start it alt+F11 and that I need to make sure that code is written under the specific sheet where my tag is located.

## Skip Code Depending On Cell Condition

May 17, 2006

I m trying to bypass some code if a certain condtion is meet. If Cell A1 has a zero in it I want to skip the following code and continue one with the rest of the macro. This is the code I have.

j = 0
RowCount = Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "a").End(xlUp).Row
cell_a = Range("A1").Value
If Not cell_a = 0 Then
Rows("1:" & cell_a * 2).Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown
Range("A1").Select
For i = 1 To cell_a * 2
Range("a" & i).Select
ActiveCell.Value = j
j = j + 0.5
Next i

I put the If Not/Then statement in there to try and figure out what do. But I don't know what to put after the THEN statement. Basically I want run the code after the THEN statement if there isn't a zero in cell A1 and skip the code if A1 contains a zero.

## Code Which Highlights A Cell Depending On Criteria Of Another Cell?

Mar 7, 2012

code which highlights a cell depending on the criteria of another cell.

Example.

In B1 I have the formula =NOW() (we all now what this means).

In B2 I have a completion date.

I would like A2 to fill with a specified colour.

Can this be done so that it works down the whole sheet, if the date is in B5 then only A5 will highlight so basically only the A cell on the same row will change depending on the date in B on the corresponding row?

## VBA Code To Change Cell Color Based On Its Value?

Jan 15, 2014

I have cells in range L12:BN1000 with formulas that will output a 1 or a 2.

also, were do I add this macro? under sheet1? this workbook? or as a module?
