Comparing Two Cells Based On Text, Font, Colour, Font Size Etc
Jun 3, 2006
I'm looking to set up a spreadsheet whereby individuals answer questions and have to format their answer using a particular font, colour, font size and so on. The idea is that I can then compare their answer sheet to a pre completed one using an =IF function and get a total score. The only problem is =if and =exact only lookup cell text/numbers and don't look at how the text is formatted within them.
I have text of size 14 and 18 mixed in cells in a column. Cells are font size 18 or mixed with both 14 and 18 size text. I need to sort out the text with one column of size 14 and another of 18 only. I am thinking of copying and pasting the column twice and run a macro in first column to remove the text of size 14, and another macro to delete text of size 18 in second column. I need the leftover text to be in same rows.
I tried everywhere and couldn't find a macro for mixed text cells. I am using Microsoft Excel 2010.
The following code does everything I need it to except for some reason it is not sending the font colour through first or the font colour is getting overwritten. I have formula in other worksheets that are counting the red and the blue to determine which rider in a team it is. For some reason the time sent to "B Grade" worksheet is ending up in black font. Can anyone explain to me why this is occuring.
I am using worksheet function.text because I am working with elapsed times that could be over 24hrs. I was wondering if the default text colour for the worksheet.text() function is black and if it could be changed.
I have executed this macro from this spreadsheet many times but today, after I execute the macro, the box increased in size. I repositioned it on the page, resized it and re-executed. Now it is decreasing the font size within the button each time I execute. It executed just fine yesterday. I assume it's some setting in excel because I've tried another spreadsheet and am seeing the same result.
When a number is entered in cell S3, it triggers formulas throughout the worksheet to populate the it with information from another sheet. If the length of the text in B6 is greater than 80, the font size for B6 only should be 8; if the length of the text in B6 is less than or equal to 80, the font size for B6 should be 10. Regardless of the length of the text in B6, the font size for the rest of the sheet should not be changed.
I tried the following Option Explicit Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Address "$B$6" And Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub Dim cnt As Long cnt = Len(Cells(6, 2).Value) If cnt > 80 Then Cells(6, 2).Font.Size = 8 ElseIf cnt < 80 Then Cells(6, 2).Font.Size = 10 End If End Sub
I humbly seek help on the "Find and Add based on Font Colour". For instance, A1="urgent"(with red font) and I want B1 to return as "ATTENTION". Other than red font, it will return as empty string. Can Conditional Formatting do the task?
I have 11 names, one name in each cell, in one row. I want to be able to delete a row if there are more than 3 names in that row that have the same font colour, eg red. Would have to be a loop type macro to check all of the rows on the one worksheet.
I am trying to set up conditional formatting in cell C4 to change the font to a smaller number based on the value of C4. If C4 = 0 then Font Calibri 16, otherwise Font Calibri 24. However, the font size is not availabe, it is greyed out. Is there another way to accomplish this without using VBA? In the worksheet could I use an if() statement to change the font size?
I have an autoshape rectangle which is linked to a cell on my spreadsheet. This cell will auto update whenever i type a number into a different cell (match and index formula).
I want the colour of the rectangle to be green, amber. red or black depending the value my formula brings back. I have managed to do this but the colour does not automatically update. Also when the colour goes black i will need the font in the text box to be white, at all other tines it will be black.
I am working on a spreadsheet for work, and have managed to do everything I need to so far but I need to colour specific letter strings, certain colours within a range of cells (each letter string will only appear once on each sheet)
The strings I will be looking for vary depending on data entered so I will need to cell reference them
The strings that need colouring are in cells with other strings that must stay black (They cannot be separated from other strings due to the nature of the grid)
I need some strings red, some green, and some blue.
These changes should also apply to the whole workbook not just one sheet.
I have my Excel set up for a default font size of 12 point.
I often download CSV data to insert into spreadsheets. It opens in a new spreadsheet, and it's properly displayed in 12 point size. When i copy and paste it into the ultimate target spreadsheet (which is also set to 12 point size) the pasted data shows up as 10-point and I have to change the font size back to 12-point every time.
Why is this happening and how can I avoid that re-sizing that occurs?
This probably sounds really weird, but does anyone know whether the size of the text in Cell A1 on Sheet 1 can be linked to the size of the text in Cell B2 on Sheet 2? Like, when I change the size of Cell A1's text, is there a way to have the size of Cell B2's text change as well?
I currently have an Excel spreadsheet already created. I have added drop down lists using the Validation>Data feature and can get this to create the drop-down box, but the font is unreadable. If I create a new sheet and create the drop-down list it becomes readable. I can't figure out why the first is unreadable due to its small size. I eventually plan to add formulas to calculate how many yes's or no's in a column, but will address that later. I use Excel 2003.
Is it possible to control the font size in a cell with a sliderBar?. I have a template I use to print labels on cd sleeves and need to change the font a lot. Looking for a fast and easy way,seems like a sliderbar would be easy.
How do you increase the font size of a drop down list in excel apart from zooming in. I have 10 dropdwnbxs each with about 16 items.
Everything works fine but users can not see the contents of each drop down box(fonts are too small). Is there a solution to this? (or just keep zooming in/out). Example i have a drop down box in A2 with source from F2:F17.....etc
I have a simple combo box on my worksheet and the data range is from cells A1:A100 (this is hidden), is there a way to change the font size of the data that populates the combobox? I have tried to re-size the data in my range but this has no effect
I have a drop-down list that displays at about a size 6 (or smaller) font when the worksheet is displayed at 75-100%. I can make it readable by changing the magnification of the sheet to 150-200%, but that takes the rest of the sheet out of view, interferes with functionality, and is just an all-around pain in the butt. How do I format the list to make it display at a readable size?
