I have a spreadsheet with due dates in column X. I want to create conditional formatting so that cells turn red when the due date is less than or equal to 30 days away, but turn gray when the due date has passed.
I've accomplished the first step by using the following: =AND($X6
I have a range that contains dates, with some cells within containing text (e.g. "TBC" or "planning will occur wk42"). I have basic rules as below:
- highlight red if older than today - highlight green if today or in the future
The problem I have is that the cells that have text are highlighted green which I don't want. I also don't want to have to go through the range removing conditional formatting from each of those cells each time I copy over new data. Is there a way of telling excel to not use conditional formatting on those cells that contain text so I can manually highlight as I need? Some have text as that is how I receive the data.
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 spreadsheet I'm trying to make which will have various cells change color based upon the date entered compared to today's date. Here are the details of it, and what I've tried to do so far:
Various safety tickets that employees acquire have a 3 year expiry date on them. What I want to do is be able to enter in the issue date, and then have the conditional formatting color the cell that contains the date based on the following criteria:
Green = More than 6 months remaining Yellow = Between 6 months and 30 days remaining Red = 30 days until expiry
Black = Expired (I wanted to eventually add this one, but Excel 2003 was only allowing me to add 3 conditional formatting conditions, so I just went with the 3 colors. I'm getting Excel 2007 later today, so I might be able to add more with that)
Now here is what I have so far:
3 years = 1095 days, 2.5 years = 913 days, 2 years and 11 months = 1065 days
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 want to create a chart than logs the progress of a project at work. Column 1 will have a series of target dates for certain tasks and column 2 will be filled in with the completed dates. I want automatically colour a cell (RC) based on the date given in the cell to the left (RC[-1]) giving a traffic light style warning of an upcoming target date and colour coding the cells when a task is completed on time (or not!). I can work out what the conditions are by creating 2 sets of 3 conditions (1 set if cell (RC) is empty and 1 set if cell (RC) has a date or "N/A" in it).
My conditions are:
1. Turn the cell background colour red (action overdue) if:
2. Turn the cell background colour orange (action required) if:
i have a spreadsheet which is used to keep the training records for the company it counts no of staff and their skill levels for different parts of the job, when a person moves to a different branch the skill required changes and they have a set period of time to aquire the new skill.
when the time is up the colour of the old skill is changed to a red font by a conditional format based on the date.this is then counted by a calculation so the team know how many people are to be targeted for extra training.
the problem i have is the calculation will not count conditionally formated cells, so whenever i update the sheet i have to go to each cell with red text and change the font colour manually to red, this sounds really silly and is impossible to explain to anyone who does not understand conditional formatting. i e the people who will end up using the database
what im looking for is a way to count conditionally formatted cells based on the condition being met i.e. they are showing as red font.
I have a row of cells pertaining to jobs B3 across to I3.
In B3, C3, D3, E3 the value entered is text. In F3, G3, H3, I3 the value entered is time.
What I am trying to do is to change the Background colour to Red on cells F3, G3, H3, I3 if either H3 or I3 or are empty at the end of the current day but only if there is some text in any or all of the cells B3 - E3
So for example if H3 or I3 have no time put in them by 23:59 today, when the workbook is opened tomorrow the cells background colour will turn red.
Not sure if this if poossible or not? hopefully I have explained it well enough but if not pease let me know.
I have the following code. I am trying to conditional format a row based on the value of the A column of the row.I have a total of 3 rows. I have to use VBA because in time I may have 4 rows of data. The problem is I after the first do while loop the code stops and the code doesn't proceed to format row 2.
Im having some issues with some code Im working on. My goal is to delete the rows that do not have conditions met. Conditional formatting is used in 6 columns of my spreadsheet and the cell fill is to turn red when below .50 . This code is shown below. What I need to do now is look at the 6 columns where the conditions are applied, and delete any rows where the column cells are not red. To further clarify, if in row 1 column X:X does not meet criteria, but column AL:AL does, the row would not be deleted. However if none of the columns meet the criteria, the entire row is deleted.
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
I have a spreadsheet that tracks publication dates and review dates. I would like the publication date to change color based upon its relationship with todays date. If the publication date is equal to or older than two years from today turn red, if it is equal to or older than a year and a half from today turn yellow. This seems like a pretty simple formula but I have tried several times and I can't seem to get it to work.
I have a simple due date spread sheet for tasks that need completing at work. I am able to make the 'Due date' cell turn red when it is equal to or less than todays date, using conditional formatting. No problem.
I also have a 'Date closed' cell which is populated with a date when the task is complete.
What I am struggling to do however is change the red 'Due Date' cell to Grey once the 'Date Closed' cell is populated with a date. In fact I would like the whole row to be greyed out once the 'Date Closed' cell is populated.
I also have an 'Open / Closed' cell, which tells me if a task is open or closed, being chosen from a drop down I installed. Could this be used as an alternative to the 'Date Closed' cell. ie If someone selects 'Closed' in cell A4 the whole A row goes grey.
Each item (row) in my sheet contains a logged date in column A, and a priority Level in Column G - which is via a data validation drop down (1 to 3).
What I would like to do is create a conditional format based on what the priority level is, and whether it has expired its allowed resolution time based on the logged date.
For example a Level 1 priority requires a 1 day fix, a level 2 requires a 5 day fix and a level 3 requires a 10 day fix.
If the priority level is a 1 and the logged date is over 1 day old i need the whole row to change colour. If the priority level is a 2 and the logged date is over 5 days old I need it to change colour, and if the Priority level is a 3 and the logged date is over 10 days old I need it to change colour. The colour can be the same each time, but I just need to know how to get it to trigger.
I think I have used an IF(AND( formula in the past, but cannot remember how to do it.
I have a monthly calender, with each month on its own sheet. I have a sheet named Holidays, which list the holidays. I have been able to use conditional format and highlight the dates in the months the holidays fall on, but I would like to highlight a range of cells below the date on monthly sheet. I have attached a sample of what I have and would like to achieve. I am not much good at using VBA, but would not be against using it either.
I have a spreadsheet that requires me to manually hunt down records that match based on several different criteria. this is very time consuming and inefficient. i would like to find a way to highlight certain records that match based on several different fields. i have posted an example spreadsheet that also has a more detailed description of what i am trying to do; which is located in the second sheet.
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...
