Example:

Condition 1 =IF(L14

how I could have a range of B15-F15 to place Today's System-date in the Cell: A1, anytime anything is entered in that range?

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have an excel document that has one columb (I) of cells that changes color depending on a specific date (columb h) . The cells that have conditional formating to change the row color based on where it is ( =MOD(ROW(),2)=1), stays blank and the proper color until columb A is filled in. The others show up red. How would I code/format the lines that aren't included in the conditional formating to always show white when no value is entered in columb a.

View 9 Replies View Relatedhow to use the conditional format tool, but now the company i designed the spreadsheet for, wants me to implement a change. I'm attacking a copy of the spreadsheet so you can see the problem more easily. Now what I've been asked todo is the following.

1. When the stock quantity (Column H) goes below the re-order level (Column K), they want the entire row to change font colour from blue to red. Now I know how i can change the colour of one cell, like ive done in the example, but I'm not sure how to change the entire row colour. If this can be done with conditioning formating then great, but if not then i'm stuck, and relying on your generosity in helping me out.

i have 2 columns the first is the transaction number and second column is the description

i want to make that all even transaction number will highlight the whole row... how do i make that with conditional formatting? or are there other alternatives?

I have a large X-Y-axis table with about 200 entries in it. There are 6 different entries possible. I now want to give each possible entry in this table a color for making it easier to read.

I could write a formula in conditional formating, so that it works for 3 colors. The problem is now that i can make this only for 3 different colors in conditional formating of excel. Is there a possibility for making this for 6 colors?

I want to set up formula in conditional formating so that when:

$AF6 = "CA" the color is red

or

if $AF6 = ("GA","ME","PR") then the color is blue

what I came up with is Condition 1

= ($AF6 ="ca") [which will turn the cell red]

Condition 2

="OR($AF6={""GA"",""ME"",""PR""}, "")" [which doesn't do anything]

I have a spreadsheet

B4:B193 - place

D4:D193 - value

F4:F193 - name

H4:H193 - place

J4:J193 - value

L4:L193 - name

N9:N93 - place

P9:P93 - value

Q9:Q93 - name

What i am looking for is this:

If value in cell in column D is >=90 then relevant cell in column B, D and F background green

If value in cell in column D is less =80 then relevant cell in column B, D, and F background dark blue

If value in cell in column D is less =70 then relevant cell in column B, D, and F background light blue

If value in cell in column D is less =50 then relevant cell in column B, D, and F background orange

If value in cell in column D is less

Asks almost exactly the question I have, but I can't make heads or tails out of the answers, I'm guessing becasue I have Excel 2003 and not 2007 as mentioned in the replies.

In column "A" I have a number; column "B" the formula =A1 copied on down and in column "C" either a 1 or 2 or a 3.

If the number in column "C" is a 1 then the font in the same cell in Column "B" should be black, 2 Blue and 3 Red.

I'm thinking this should be very simple, but so far it's not turning out that way. )-:

if its possible to run conditional formating on graphs, I can do this fine on the actual data

i.e. Have a bar chart with a number of bars all the same colour and just wanted to have the bars change to red if they drop below a certain percentage.

only running excel 2000

I am working on code breaking, and am working on trying multiple letter combinations, and was wondering if I could spell check the results and have that identify letter combinations that ARE words.

Been hunting around the forums but cant seem to find quite what I want.

I want to specify the background of a cell to be red if the text in that cell contains a specific word.

e.g. cell a1 will have the text 'Rest of World' (without quotes). I want this to show as red if it contains the word 'of'.

Of course the cell may contain other words but this illustrates what I'm looking to achieve.

I tried the following conditional formula but this does not work:

=IF(SEARCH("of",H3)>1,1,0)

I have tried a variety of if & and type statements but I cannot get this 2 conditional format to work. Review attached spreadsheet.

What I would like to accomplish is as follows in the 3Q09 tab. If a subdivision name is found in C-62 through C-70 and a match is found for the subdivision name in AB-24 to AB-66 I would like it so the AB-24 to AB-66 Subdivision name is bolded for every match. I removed the function formulas from the 3q09 tab I used to have since they didnt work and I do not want to confuse anyone.

This is correctly done on the "Working Correctly" Tab included in the same file, so please view this for clarification if you need it. Why it works on one tab and not the other simply baffles me.

I looked around the forum for a answer but none are quite the same. AA2 contains a date. AN2 contains a Pass or Fail based on =IF(AH4<60,"FAIL",IF(AJ4<60,"FAIL",IF(AL4<60,"FAIL","PASS"))).

Now even if those above fields are empty and no date is in AA2 "PASS" still shows up in AN2. I used =$AA$5="" to make AN2 turn white if AA2 had no date in it. I am unable to copy the formatting along the rest of the AN column without it all refering to just AA2. Is there a way to make it copy and correct the formating like it does with formulas? I had planned to due the same thing with the AO column that contains "DUE" if the person has not taken a test in 180 days. =IF(AA2<=(TODAY()-180),"DUE",IF(AA2<=(TODAY()-150),"CLOSE",IF(AN2="FAIL","RETEST","")))

I have a table I use visually, and I put it in a spreadsheet. Instead of finding a table value based on row and column label decisions, I use it as follows. I decide the row by matching exactly the height, h = 8 ft. In that row, I match the next larger value of 10 kips, in this case the value is 12.72; I then pick the column header label, in this case the value is 4 x 8.

I don't know how to make"B8:L8" equivalent to "B"&3+row : "L"&3+row in the 2nd Match formula?

is there a way to merge cells when conditional formating them

example if a1- team then it will be 2 cells

if a1 = player then it will be 1 cell?

Is it possible to return NA() to cell A10 if A10>A9, without adding a 3rd cell ??

I have a list of numbers say in column A, but when the number "41", "25", "90", or "92" is in that column, I want a text message to print 6 columns to the right of it (same row) that says "service".

I have a worksheet that I would like to color a range of cell within a row whenever the value of a certain cell in that row changes. For example, if cell A3 have a value of East that row color will be Blue with white fonts, if value is West the row color will be Green with Black fonts, if value is North the row color will be Red with Yellow fonts. This should apply to any row whenever the value is Column A is changed.

i have a list of customers with various information, i would like to rank these customers 1 to 5 and change the colour of the cells dependant on there rank.

Conditional formatting allows me too do this but is limited to 3 formats.

I have Columns A-K filled with data and want the condition to be set on column B if Column B meets a requirement it will then colour that Row (A-K)

So for example Row 3:

B3 = the requirement to change colour to red so cells A3:K3 will turn red

B4 = the requirement to change colour to gree so cells A4:K4 will turn red

and this must go down to row 1000 or whatever it may be.

I have three attendance columns M:O which will contain the number of viisits per month. I am averaging these columns in column P. I am using the following formula to calculate the averages of three columns using Windows XP and Excel 2003.

=IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE(IF(M5:O50,M5:O5))),"",AVERAGE(IF(M5:O50,M5:O5)))

The formula works fine as I initially started to remove the error message from the zero values. My problem started when I created a conditional format to color the entire row yellow, based upon the formula in column A

=IF(ISERROR(IF(P24

I have an excel file with 5500 records. I would like to have excel "color code" the rows based on a field's value

What I would like to do is have the value in column Y is:

*NO* or "T/P" (note there are *'s in the value) to have it formatted with Grey shading/Red text

"N/A" apply a different color shading

and if "yes" apply a 3rd shading

Note, that I would like to have the entire row and not just the Col Y cell formatted.

How can I do this? Would this slow down Excel alot?

I have a matrix that has been imported into excel from access. The column header is product number and the row header is name. I am then importing the data from an access query that puts the product/name matches in a small table to the right of the matrix (will be hidden when completed). I need to shade the corresponding cell in the matrix if that name has a match for that product. I tried =AND(MATCH(name details),MATCH(product details)) as my formatting equation, but that does not account for whether the matches are in the same row or not, so any combinations of products and names that appear in the whole table are shaded. I am not sure what other commands I can use to get the formatting equation to make sure that the matches are in the same row. Below is an example of my setup, "S" means it would be shaded.

I am trying to have conditional formatting of cells apply only if another cell is blank in 2007. A3 has a formatting of =MOD(ROW(),2)=1, then =AND (A3<>"",A3+15<=$G$1) to change the color based on date and finally =AND(A3<>"",A3+30<=$G$1) to again change the color again by date. What I would like to do is for the cells in columb A to change only if corresponding columb B cell is empty, without using macros if possible.

View 2 Replies View RelatedI am trying to teach myself something new, say I have a list of numbers in two rows and I want to count the numbers and have it tell me if there are duplicates and highlight the duplicates. I got the part about getting Excel to tell me if there are duplicates but I can not seem to figure out the conditional formating part. I uploaded a sheet.

View 3 Replies View RelatedIs it possible to do a conditional formating based on a value being entered into the first cell of a row?

Basically when a date is entered into a cell in column A, I want the cells in that same row (A-J) to have a border, even if B-J do not have any value entered into them.

I need the formula that will color the cell if value is Text= Sat or Sun

View 2 Replies View RelatedI have a single column of data that is, perhaps, 100 rows long.

I have ticks, crosses and 'N/A' in various cells within this column. There are no cells that are blank.

I want to count the number of ticks within the column and want to be able to say:

If the number of ticks is = 100% then it's green.

If the number is >75% and <100% then it's amber.

If the number <75% then it's red.

I also want to exclude the N/A cells from the % calculation.

I am using several formulas to conditionally format and fill in rows from column A to column BS. These are the formulas and application areas:

=$BS4<>"" Applied to =$A$3:BS$350

=$G3<>"" Applied to =$A$3:BS$350

=OR($J3="Regional Manager",$J3="Assistant Manager",$J3="Manager") Applied to =$A$3:BS$350

=OR($J3="Recruiting Manager",$J3="Owner",$J3="District Manager",$J3="Office Manager") Applied to =$A$3:BS$350

If I do not add or delete any rows, everything works just fine. The problem I am running into is that this list is constantly updated and rows are being added and deleted. When I do this, it duplicates my rules and changes my applied to ranges. Here are some examples of the changes:

=$N$3:$BS$3

=$A$3:$M$63

=$N$4:$BS$64

This creates much excess work, when I have to go back and change everything back to the way it should be. how I can either modify my formulas or application areas to correct this situation?
