# Conditional Format For 2nd And 3rd Highest Value

Feb 18, 2008

I am trying to use conditional formatting to highlight the 2nd and 3rd highest value in a given column.

Example:
Step John Sam Hugh
1 3 4 5
2 9 10 23
3 12 11 43

Based on the above, for step 1, Sam has the 2nd highest value and John has the 3rd highest value.

Is there a way to use conditional formatting to highlight this ?

## Conditional Format Highest Value

Jan 28, 2007

I have a row of figures from cell C1:C100 and I want the highest figure in that row to be in bold and red (conditional formating I think)

I cant work out what formula I need to enter in the conditional formating section.

Oct 14, 2009

I've creating a sheet to keep track of quality for my department. What i want excel to do is highlight via conditional format the highest 3 percentages in collum.

Example

85%
90%

## Conditional Format The List So That It Shows The Lowest Percentage In 'green' And The Highest In 'red'

May 13, 2009

I have a list in column A of percentages (to 4 decimals 0.0013) i need to conditional format the list so that it shows the lowest percentage in 'green' and the highest in 'red'.

## Conditionally Format From Highest To Lowest With Tie Break?

Apr 22, 2013

I need to do conditional formatting based on the highest percentage (value) in each row.

[1st highest value (green coloring), 2nd highest (Orange color), 3rd highest (blue coloring), if it has the letters "NT" then (Red color)]

But to break the tie, if the value of the 1st column is equal to the value of the 2nd column, 1st will be considered as the highest value. If the value of the 2nd column is equal to the value of the 3rd column will be considered 2nd largest value.

## Conditional Summing: Find Those Combinations Of Variable Values Which Generate Highest Total Gain

Jun 17, 2008

The aim is to find those combinations of variable values which generate highest total gain. I attached the spreadsheet which shows the variables (A through K) and a Gain column. I created 5 additional tabs which show all possible 2,3,4 and 5-member combinations of the variables. These tabs are like coordinates of which variable combinations should be examined. As an example I used the first combination from the second tab = A and B. If you look at these two columns on the EXAMPLE CALCULATION tab you will see 7,7 in the Number combination which is the first number pair for these two variables. The headings of the red and the yellow columns calculate the total count for this number pair and the total gain. These were recorded on a separate EXAMPLE RESULTS tab along with some other pairs which appear afterwards (these were recorded only from the first 39 rows of the AB data). I need a macro which will cycle through each variable pair (only using the combinations from the tab 2 for now, annd later from 3,4 and 5 tabs) collecting statistics for each unique number combination it encounters (printing to a separate sheet one after one), such as shown on the EXAMPLE RESULTS.

## Save Conditional Format Colour But Delete Condition Format

Dec 19, 2006

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.

## Conditional Format Based On A Conditional Format

Feb 9, 2010

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.

## Copy And Paste Actual Format From Conditional Format?

Apr 12, 2012

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.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Another Cell Conditional Format

Mar 20, 2013

Is it possible to change the format of cell AI3 based on the format of cell C3 and D3? I have C3 and D3 set to turn red based on what is in cell C2 and D2. I would like the following done:

If AI3=C3 & C3 is red, format AI3 blue
If AI3=D3 & D3 is red, format AI3 blue
Otherwise, leave AI3 unformatted.

Possible???

## Looping & Conditional Format: Finds A "J" It Will Apply Conditional Formatting To A Row Of 4 Cells Directly Adjacent?

Feb 9, 2009

I need to run a loop through a column of values (attachment col B) and when it finds a "J" it will apply conditional formatting to a row of 4 cells directly adjacent. The attachment is a theoretical before & after.

## VBA Extract Highest And Second Highest Values

Nov 27, 2013

I'm attempting to put together a script which in simple terms finds the 'Highest and Second' highest activity and associated FTE for a given sub group.

To be more specific:

On the "Slide 1" sheet look at the values in column J starting at row 7 until blank;For each value, then search the "All Monthly Direct Activities" sheet in column C for the same value, excluding the 'Subtotal' rows;Where a match is found, compare all the values in column E for that sub group;And Find the highest and second highest figure;

Once these are found copy this figure and associated value in column B and paste onto the "slide 1" sheet.

I'm not particularly well versed in writing VB, but I've been working with the code to see if I can get this work, which I have been unable to do.

I have attached a file which may perhaps provide a greater detail than my description of the problem containing the 'Source' and 'Destination' sheets.

## Quick Max :: Possible To Show The Next Highest Rather Than The Highest

Jan 15, 2008

If I use =MAX(A1:G1) I get the highest value. Is it possible to show the next highest rather than the highest and if so how?

## Conditional Format Or Another Way?

Apr 22, 2014

how to view changes on my spreadsheet.

I have a tab called SAP DUMP where we copy our raw data to, from here we manually copy and paste into another sheet called ORDER TRACKING SHEET. When we do a fresh dump (overwrite) of raw data into the SAP DUMP tap we need to see if the there is a new entry which needs to be copied across to the ORDER TRACKING SHEET. I've got a vlookup to show this. The one I can't work out is that on the ORDER TRACKING SHEET I also need to see if there are any entries are now no longer on the SAP DUMP tab. This is where I thought a condition format might work, color the line red if it's no longer on the SAP DUMP tap. Can't make it work.....

## Conditional Format According To Day

Dec 16, 2008

I have a workbook with 12 worksheets corresponding to months. Each is formatted in A1 with the month (Date, Jan-01) and all rows below, starting at A5, are the days of the month (Custom, ddd d). All cells are linked so they change accordingly with A1.

I'm trying to apply conditional formatting so that all Fridays will have light grey shading across the row. I can get it to shade every 7th row using the MOD & ROW functions, but the shaded row changes with subsequent months and years (not necessarily Fridays). Can I get it to recognize every Friday through the year.

## Conditional Format In VBA

Apr 24, 2009

b.Trial2

Disregard the First Table. I cant remove it. refer to the Second Table

This table is a Task Tracker. The Start Button Adds the Current Date in Enercon's Row C1 and the row below (C2) will automaticaly filled with color using Conditional Formating. My Question is how can I code a conditional format for Trail1 Rows. For example when Trail1 Cell is active then you click the start Button instead of Coloring D2 Cell it should Color D3 Cell.

Here is the Code in Start Button

Sub cmdStart_Click()
Dim i As Integer
Results = MsgBox("Are you working on " & ActiveCell.Value & " today ?", vbOKCancel, "")
If Results = vbOK Then

With Sheets("Sheet1")
i = .Cells(2, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column + 1
.Cells(2, i).Value = Now()
i = i + 1

End With
Else
Range("A1").Select
End If
End Sub

Kevin

## Search And Conditional Format?

May 14, 2014

I would like to conditionally format a column of cells such that it formats when a cell's text equals to that in another column.

Example, in column A I have

1 Cat
2 Dog
3 Mouse
...

In B I have
1 Chicken
2 Mouse
3 Monkey
...
58 Cat

Based on the B column I would like to highlight A3 Mouse and A1 Cat.

Additional complexity, In B I have
1 Chicken Mouse Dog
2 Rat Monkey Fish
3 ...

Given that this is the format I have the text in how would I search column A and conditionally format A2 and A3.

Maybe I'm getting a blank, maybe the answer is so easy, but lately I canīt solve this: How do I use conditional format to change cell color if cell value (date) is not workday?

## Conditional Format And Or & FIND

Jul 12, 2009

In column B I could have blank, text or text containing the word "track" or "Track". In column C I could have Blank, "yes" or "Yes" or "no" or "No"

Only if B text contains "track" or "Track" and/or C contains "yes" or "Yes" I want to conditionally format B.

This does not work:-

=OR(FIND("track",B1,1),FIND("Track",B1,1),C1="yes",C1="Yes")

## Conditional Format With More Than One Rule

Aug 29, 2013

I have a table where Sales are in Column B and a % calculation is in Column E. I want to highlight the cells in green that are over 40% and that also meet the criteria where the sale in that row is above \$100.

In conditional formatting I tried to use =and(b4>100,e4>40%) but it did not do anything. I am also okay with using a nested if statement.

## Add Text To Conditional Format?

i.e. i would like all the blank rows in a section of my spreadsheet to have a grey fill and display the text "Please input your description here" if the cell is blank.

## Conditional Format Based On Even / Odd?

Apr 23, 2007

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.

## Conditional Format Via Vb Code

Nov 26, 2007

I m creating a sheet in excel where I need to do some conditional formatting but need more than 3 rules so i'm guessing i'll need to use some vb code.

Basically I have a range of cells say from c12 to ag15
These cells all have formulas in linking to other cells in other sheets.

Tha values that will be in them are as follows: s, h, hd,ooo,z and maybe 1 or 2 more will be added later. I need the cells background and text colour both to change to a colour depending on the value in the cell.

eg. cell value = s then background and text colour both to be yellow.

=\$K2=\$L\$1 red is the same
(this data then tells us we need to chase these items)

## Set Up Conditional Format Using Two Way Lookup?

Jul 12, 2012

I'm trying to set up a conditional format using a two way lookup. The chart is 15 colums across and perhaps 500 down. Index / Match functions do find the correct value - BUT - the challenge is there ARE duplicate values in either the column or row that are "all" getting highlighted with the conditional format (color a cell).

## Conditional Format With OR Function

Apr 12, 2013

I want to apply conditional formatting in a cell based on the contents of another cell. I can do it if I just want it based off 1 condition (=b151="sample") but would like to if it met 1 of a couple possibilities.

For example, cell H151 I would like to fill green if cell B151 contained the text "sample" or "example". B151 has a list box with about 10 possibilities but I only want a few of those to turn H151 green.

## Conditional Format With Formula For Each Row

Oct 21, 2013

I have a file with two columns

Column A has a list of equipment names, for example: EQ1, EQ2, EQ3, etc.
Column B has serial numbers of equipment from column A.

I need to create a complex conditional formatting, which will check:

If A1=EQ1, and B1"HCC*" then make it red,
OR
if A1=EQ2, and B1"ABC*" then make it red,
OR
if A1=EQ3, and B1OR("CDE*","FGE") then make it red.

And then same thing for A2, B2 cells.

I have thousands of rows in both columns.

I have to check whether selected equipment name corresponds with entered serial name pattern. I don't know how to do it for each row separately.

I thought of something like:
1st condition: =AND(A1="EQ1",LEFT(B1,3)"HCC")
2nd condition: =AND(A1="EQ2",LEFT(B1,3)"ABC")
...

But how do I apply this conditional formatting to each row, so that it will compare A2 with B2, A3 with B3, and so on, instead of comparing A1 with B1 in all of the rows?
