Conditional Format Based On A Text Range Within A Cell
Nov 11, 2009
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.
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...........
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.
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 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 need to check a range of cells for 2 different values. If either value is present, I need to shade a cell (outside the original range) red. If neither value is present I need to shade the cell yellow. Can this be accomplished with conditional formatting?
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 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.
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.
If I wanted to highlight a cell if any cell in the range to the right was greater than zero, what formula would i use. I have tried =IF(L1:AD1>0,1) with the result returning for only the cells in column L. Row 3 has no value in column L but a value in column N with no result to highlight the cell.
Been racking brain, searching through the forum here, and my Excel 2003 Bible all day trying to figure out this problem to no avail. I would like to clear the contents of any cell in a given range if the cell immediately to the right of is formatted as bold.
I'm trying to make a schedule for some of my employees (300 to be exact) and I was trying to work out a way of speeding things up a bit. I've made plenty of pretty complex equations for working with the task but the solution for what I would like to do now alludes me.
Here's the challenge: I have a sheet where I would like to insert employees within row 4 and then have their shifts shown visually in the column below that, and have the hours they work put into a merged cell (or something similar), like what can be seen in the blue cell under "Employee 1" (C6). What I would like to do is just have something like a VBA detect that a series of cells is merged (red cells) and insert the corresponding time, located within B5:B33, into that cell (with same format as the blue cell). Also, above the employee's name I could put a button to run something like a macro to run the program for the corresponding employee directly under that button.
Essentially I want to merge a series of cells, hit a button, and have excel locate and input the correct times within that merged cell.
Assume that is the table i have. In row 1 i need conditional formatting such that if any of the columns contain an x the first row should be color coded. In my above example every column in row 1 will be color coded expect for row 1 column 6 since there are no x's for any any row in column 6.
How can i do this in excel.Also instead of x's if i have manually entered color can we do the same ?
