Conditional Format Cell Based On AND/OR Condition Of Another
Feb 8, 2008
i m trying to format a cell so that it colours in red when a specific text is chosen in another cell, ive tried conditional formatting but I cannot get it to work. e.g column A has a drop down list, if GB or IEN is chosen in that cell then cell in column K will become red. (as if these two are chosen then they have to input a number into column K). Once they have inputted the number into column K i want it to go back to its original format. Or if they dont select GB or IEN then it would stay in its original format aswell.
I have a Sheet ( Named "Summary" for Example ) of about 4,000 Rows that has a LOT of Conditional Formatting.
I Added Another 100 Rows this Morning and when I Tried Saving it a Message Saying that Not All the Formatting for the New Data that had Been Added had Been Saved. Is there a Macro or Something I can Run that will Make the Conditionally Formatted Cells Stay the Colour that they are but Delete the Conditional Formatting Part of it Achieved Using "Format" & "Conditional Format" from the Menu Please.
Ideally I would like to be Able to Enter the Number of Rows ( From Row ? to Row ? ) that I want this to Apply to.
With the click of a toolbar button, I've got my vba inserting a new tab, renaming it, inserting headers and now working on the code to insert all the formulas needed in 12 columns to copy down as far as there is data.
The 4th column D is the hardest. Currently, I'm using manual "Conditional Formatting" to colorize the cells in Col D but need the VBA to place that "Conditional Formatting" code into the sheet so that when the sheet is created, it will hold the conditional formatting feature.
Specifically, the formulas I'm using in the Conditional format wizard are:
Formula: =$B2$D2 then turn the cell red Applies to: =$D$2:D
Copy down (in other words, the colorizing should work all the way down Column D as long as there is data in Col D.
I'm afraid as its a multiple conditional format and thus needs coding. At the moment I'm using the following
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) ' Conditional Formatting for more than 3 conditions Dim rng As Range ' Target is a range::therefore,it can be more than one cell ' For example,,someone could delete the contents of a range, ' or someone could enter an array.. Set rng = Intersect(Target, Range("E27:E34,G27:G34,I27:I34,K27:K34,M27:M34,O27:O34,Q27:Q34,S27:S34,U27:U34,W27:W34,Y27:Y34,AA27:AA34"))
If rng Is Nothing Then Exit Sub Else.....................
This works very nicely, so that for example if I type the number 10 into cell M33, that cells fill colour becomes black (and the text turns white). Alas I would now also like to extend the fill and text colour to the cell one to the left too. To take this example I would type 10 into cell M33 and cells L33 and M33 would both be filled black and their text would be white. I'm not sure if this requires a change to the code, or if its possible to just have a formula or something which copies the fomatting of one cell into another
Is it possible to format a cell based upon the format of another cell? For instance, if the cell to the left of a target cell is bold, is there a conditional formatting cell that can be used so that the target cell is bold as well?
I want to highlight an entire row based on the contents of of a particular cell. For instance, if c4 contains data, highlight the entire row 4. If c5 is blank, do not highlight the entire row 5...and on and on...
I am working with the Conditional Formatting, which is fine for one cell. Here is what I am trying to do: IF cell in $A1 = 1 then bold $B2:$M2 and apply solid line border to top of cell ranges. I have tried conditional formatting but it only formats the cells in column A. And I can't seem to find a BOLD statement for the cell formulas.
My cell has a 'P' or an 'F' plus some additional text. I'm trying to change cell color based on the 'P' or 'F' but I can't get it to recognize the letters. Samples of what I've tried: =IF(LEFT(L23,1)=P) =IF(MID(L23,1,1)=P) etc.
I can 'FIND' the 'P' or 'F' but there may be a P or F else where in the cell so the color may come up incorrect. I'm trying to get it to just look at the first character in the cell. Can the 'IF' be used with CFs?
I need to make an entire column formatless if the cell in row 3 contains no text. I want the whole column to just appear like a normal formatless column, but if there is text in the row 3 cell, I want it to be the way I have it formatted right now.
I have a large spreadsheet which includes many rows whose number format needs to change depending on the value of a specific cell.
So for example:
If cell B20 has value "A", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 1,234 If cell B20 has value "B", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 5.6% If cell B20 has value "C", cells Q20:AG20 should display as 7.89 Etc...
As conditional formatting does not seem to include a number format option I've worked out that I need some sort of macro to change these settings for me, either automatically whenever the value of B20 changes or, more likely, when I manually choose to run the macro.
conditional format formula that is based on a text range within a cell. In my case, I would like to compare the low and high range when inputted as a number followed by the quotation marks followed by space then hyphen, space then number and ending in quotation marks. The quotation mark is being used to represent inches.
Like this in cell D14: 0.2” - 2.2”
I am using the following condition format formula which works for the strict case above.
HTML =OR(D16<LEFT($D$14,3)+0,D16>MID($D$14,8,3)+0) However, there will be times when users using this spreadsheet may leave out the spaces on either side of the hyphen, or add more than one space between the number and hyphen. Also if additional digits are added, my formula above does not include all the digits in the results. I prefer to leave the quotation marks in...........
1. Where there is data in column B 2. Goto first row of data 2. If column J = "Closed" 3. then select Cells from column B to J in that row and colour these cells in red 4. If column J= "Open" 5. the select Celss from column B to J in that row and colour these cells in grey 4. Repeat for next row until you get to cell in column B where there is no data.
Recieve run time error 1004: Method 'RAnge of object_GLobal failed
=============================================================== Sub Colourclosed() Sheets("Risks").Select Dim LastRow As Long Dim i As Long LastRow = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row For i = 8 To LastRow If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B", "J" & i).Select Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
Note: I've managed to do it for one cell ie for Column B by replacing "If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B", "J" & i).Select with "If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B" & i).Select" This works but only colours in cell in column B, how do i do this so it colours range of cells
I am using pivot table for my customer aging which a sample is enclose. What I want to do is to Highlight the field " Customer Name " in colour if the the Field " Type of guarantee" is other than 0. Also a message of " Credit limit Exceeded" if the outstanding is more than the Credit limit.
I have five fields that have a conditional format applied to them: (see attached). Columns J, K, L, N and O. These conditionals highlight if a minimum number is entered. Ex. Minimum pushups for a 30 y/o male is 27, if a 26 is entered it highlights red. The total score (where I need this to perform) is calculated in column Q. It will format red if the total score is below 75 but what I can't figure out is how to make it format if any of the previous minimums have not been met.
Ex. In cell L4, his crunches were 25 (a automatic failure -- red formatting). Now the total score is above 75 so it calculates as passing (green), but I need it to highlight red regardless because of the minimum not met in cell L4.
I want to be able to change the font color of the numbers in a column based on even or odd. I selected the columns and formated them to all be blue... thats the color I want for even, but now I can't figure out how to set a condition that checks for odd numbers and changes them to red. I now have a count of even/odd for all records, and even/odd for the last 30, this provided some very interesting results.
I would like to try and achive a conditional format that will require a lookup function. when the condition is met it places Yes or No into a cell and changes that row colour to red for the NO condition. and after 10 days from now the rowcolour is removed.
