I've got a pivot table that shows different activities their cost, budget and percentage complete amongst other things. I would like to use conditional formatting to turn the font of a whole row grey if that activity is a 100% complete (exactly more then 99,5% complete in this case). I can do this with conditional formatting by selecting the individual rows and then setting the conditions. Example: selected row =$45:$45, Formatting condition =$J$45>99,5%.
However I've got 1500 rows to do....how can I set this condition for all rows in one go?
I can't figure out to place conditional formatting on a range at each change in cells in column A....ie. in column A, several rows will have the value "1", then several will have the value "2", all the way through "52"...sometimes there could be 4 rows with the same value, otheres there may be 5, or others even only 1.....so I need conditional formatting that says each time the value in column A changes, highlight all cells in that row one color and change that color at each change. Does that make sense?
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 found code that I would like to use conditional formatting code as shown here. Here is the code just in case:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A10")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case 1 To 5 icolor = 6 Case 6 To 10 icolor = 12 Case 11 To 15 icolor = 7 Case 16 To 20
how can I get this code to work across the entire workbook and not just for the specific worksheet? I tried pasting the code into the This Workbook under VBA Project and changing the Private to Public but no go.
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 been trying to find a way of formatting an entire row based on the contents of cells in each column. However i come unstuck when trying to make the column dynamic. Below is an example:
Month 2010 2011 2012
The idea is that i say current year is 2011 and all rows where C contains an a will turn green. What i would like to achieve is that when i change current year to say 2012 the conditional formatting adjusts so that it looks at D instead of C.
I would like to fill in the same conditional format down to 51 other rows but the formatting for each row should be based on the contents of its own cell i.e. $D$3, $D$4, $D$5 etc. How can I do this with code?
Is it possible to alternate how a condition works over many rows? Say column C has work order numbers eg. C2:C7 shows WO1234, C8:C15 shows WO1235, C16:C25 shows WO1236 and C26:C30 shows WO1237. What I would like to do is have rows 2:7 red, rows 8:15 blue, row 16:25 red, rows 26:30 blue and repeat to end (the range would be column A to column N. Ive used =MOD(ROW(),2) for every second row but am not sure how to get it to look at many rows and alternate as needed.
I've been trying to get around the 3 rule limit for conditional formatting, and I've found the code I need on the site
I've changed it to suit my needs
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim icolor As Integer If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A2000")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case Is = "Test" icolor = 6 Case Is = "Test2" icolor = 12 Case Is = "Test3" icolor = 7 Case Is = "Test4" icolor = 53 Case Is = "Test5" icolor = 15 Case Is = "Test6" icolor = 42 Case Else End Select
Target.Interior.ColorIndex = icolor
This works great for one cell, but I need to format a row range based on the single cell. So if Test is entered into A1, then it changes to yellow, I also need the next 6 cells on the row to change too- In this case [B1:G1].
But it needs to cover the range in the code A1:A2000
I have a list of 50 sites (in rows) and their revenue for the last 12 months (in columns). I would like to use conditional format to highlight the highest number in each row but I can only do this one row at a time using top/bottom rules (top 1%). Is there a formula that I can use to do all the rows at once instead of one at a time?
What I am looking to do is format a row so that it is highlighted if one cell in that row meets one of two criteria or if another cell in that row meets one of two criteria: I was hoping to use the excel conditional formating tool but I'm stumped as I need 4 criteria and it can only do 3 criteria.
The cells in question require a greater than or less than criteria. If could use something like: Formular is =$AJ16 <= -0.11 or =$AJ16 >= 0.11 and Formular is =$AK16 <= -0.11 or =$AK16 >= 0.11 I would be very happy but it won't let me do this - is there a way it can be done?
do a conditional format rule that will highlight every other row of my excel spreadsheet when the value in a specific Column (say Column A) differs than the previous.
I've attached a sample worksheet with what I want it to look like after the conditional format rule is applied (every other row highlighted in light blue). The rule needs to apply to all rows in the worksheet beginning with ROW 2 (I don't need the rule to apply to the column header which is in ROW 1).
(Core starting issue solved but other threads were created to continue with trouble spots.)
I'm terrified to use VBA just yet, so right now I'm determined to highlight values in my spreadsheet just using conditional formatting.
I have 5 plus 1 columns of data. For example,
A B C D E....F 3 2 4 5 7....2 4 6 1 3 4....1 4 7 4 5 8....4 2 1 5 3 9....1
I successfully applied a MIN formula to compare between columns on each row and display in F the MIN value. Notice each cell going down F has the minimum value in analyzing across each row.
Now, I *also* want to apply a formula on the whole F column to compare these resultant MIN values and give me the MINIMUM value between those as well, so now I'm comparing across rows. Got it? Now then.....I want the ENTIRE row that has this MIN value in F to be highlighted, because that will be the best choice for the application of what I'm doing. Did you understand this paragraph. It might have been confusing, but I think I said everything correctly, so read it carefully.
I've tried all sorts of "Formula is", "Cell value is", dollar sign this, dollar sign that, no dollar sign this, <, >, =, highlighted ALL the block of data, highlighting JUST the column across the rows of which will be compared, only highlighted one cell, but nothing has worked.
Is my problem that you can't have 2 formulas in one cell? So then I thought I should ADD another condition, but nothing works.
Let me throw in one more element that I did not state. If anywhere down the F column there is a 0, I don't want that to be my minimum. I want it to evaluate and give me the minimum value greater than 0.
Please read everything I wrote carefully. It might be confusing, but I hope someone has an answer, because it sure has frustrated me.
Now, I'm thinking that VBA programming may give me answers, but I am so terrified of macros, I don't know how to begin that. I have this impression based on the many sites I've looked at on the internet that many people do macros and it's quite easy, but it's funny to me that I am so scared. There's something about me freaking out that I won't have a period or a quote in the right place and I'll stress my day away over it.
I´m having aproblem with Excel 2007 about Conditional Formatting. I have a row of Dates for example 02-01-2009 03-01-2009 04-01-2009 , etc in different columns.
Then what I want to do is use Conditional Formatting to Format cells on several rows below according to the day (if its weekend paint red, if not, dont do anything). I'm using the "Use a formula to determine which cells to format" and the condition is (supposing the cells with dates are A1 to C1) =WEEKDAY(A1:C1) > 5 .
So with those 3 dates provided lets suppose Januar2nd is not a weekday, so the outputIwant is: Red White White, (Next Row) Red White White, etc for several rows.
Now what I think is not right is it only works for the row in which I have the cursor so its like: (Lets imagine I selected 3 rows on which I want to see that output) Red White White (The row in which the cursor is works fine), but the next row goes Red Red Red and the third the same.
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 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.
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 have a range which has conditional formats based on other cells. I want to copy this range into another sheet and retain the current formats as fixed formats without copying the conditional formulae. ideally in VBA.
