Conditional Formating Using Match Function

Nov 12, 2009

I am having many difficulties getting conditional formatting using the match function to work correctly in my excel document.

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.

Match Index And Conditional Formating

Feb 26, 2010

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?

Conditional Formating IF, Match, Index And Vlookup To Find Several Duplicated Value

Apr 11, 2009

This had been hunting me for weeks and I still could not come over it after weeks of study the conditional formating IF, match, index, Vlookup, etc to find several duplicated value, e.g Column B = Name 1 & Row B = Time and so on, where as Name will have data of Name 1 duplicated in different time, while row B, "Time"would change to a different Name and maybe it would go back to Name one.

My problem was dont know which formula I can use in a different sheet to bring back the data to Name 1 did Task A at Time A, while Name 1 did Task B at Time K, etc. If this is not Name 1, then Name B replace above.

Conditional Lookup, IF & Match Function

Apr 22, 2008

Data for once source
Column A shipping container numbers (alpha & numerical)
Column B the container size code
Column C relevant date of arrival

Data from another source
Column D shipping container numbers (alpha & numerical)
Column E the container size code
Column F relevant date of shipment

What I want is:
If Column A containers match with Column B containers Then in Column G the containers that matched and Column H the container size code
Column I the date of arrival
Column J the date of shipment

Vlookup seem to be an answer, but canít get it to work. I am not good in VB, so may be formulas would be better Named range and IF & Match FORMULA may be?!! The list will be approximately 20,000 numbers long. Have attached the sample file.

Conditional Formatting On MATCH / LOOKUP Function?

Mar 6, 2012

I have an "actual build" worksheet, which allows the user to select which materials were used, material properties (e.g. material grade etc.), including its corresponding length. The user can enter all these in manually, or select the material name from a pre-defined list (Reference worksheet contains this information), and then the associated properties are automatic lookups from the Reference worksheet.

So all this is fine / completed, and the LOOKUP returns its theoretical length from the reference table. However, its actual material lengths will almost never match the theoretical length, so what I want to happen is for a conditional format to highlight the cell, to notify the user that they need to enter a manual value. The auto-looked up length is still useful a proposed build on the worksheet, but having it highlighted to ensure it is manually entered later is the objective.

The other thing is it can't just check if it's a formula, it has to check if it is a formula with a MATCH/LOOKUP function. E.g. it needs to be unhighlighted if someone has a basic formula, ie = 2*0.42 if there two of the item etc..

Hence, I was thinking of having a conditional formula that "format only cells that contain" and then format only cells with "specific text" and "containing" and "MATCH(" text function, however this doesn't seem to work.

Length cell formula:

=OFFSET('Reference- Materials'!$N$5, MATCH($BO32, Materials_Item_Number, 0), 0) * $AH32

MOD+ROW Conditional Formating

May 18, 2009

I 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.

Conditional Formating A Row

Jul 20, 2007

how 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.

More Than 3 Conditional Formating Per Cell

Oct 31, 2008

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?

Set Up Formula In Conditional Formating

Dec 29, 2009

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]

Conditional Formating In 2003

Sep 11, 2008

This thread:

http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/showthr...itional+format

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. )-:

Conditional Formating On Text Values

Jan 9, 2009

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)

Conditional Formating Pass Or Fail

Dec 15, 2008

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","")))

Conditional Formating Or Change Events

Jan 11, 2008

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.

Conditional Formating For Multiple Cells Using VBA

Feb 20, 2009

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.

Averaging With Zeros And Conditional Formating

Jun 11, 2009

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

2003: Conditional Formating Highlight Row

Jul 13, 2009

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?

Conditional Formating Between A Matrix And A Table.

May 25, 2006

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.

------ 1----2----3----------------Name-------#
Name------------------------------Bob--------1
Bob---S----S----------------------Susan------1
Jane--------S----------------------Jane-------2
Susan-S---------S----------------Bob--------2
----------------------------------Susan------3
