# Conditional Formatting Formula Based On Rows Equaling Each Other

Jan 15, 2014

I have two columns

Column L and Column W

When I input something into Column W, I want it to turn green if it is equal to the corresponding value in Column L

So say we're on Row 50

And I put \$280 in Cell W50

I want it to turn green if W50=L50

And red if W50 does not equal L 50

Infinitely in the same column

## Conditional Formatting Text Equaling To Number Formats?

Apr 20, 2013

Conditional Formating Text equaling to Number formats:

Example:
C20 is '436.59 (its pasted as text often is must remain as text) and D20 is 436.9535

I want D20 to have only 2 decimals and turn green if it equals C20. And turn red if it doesnt equal C20.

## Deleting Rows Based On Conditional Formatting

Jun 11, 2009

I'm trying to get Excel to delete entire rows based on the conditional formating i'm using.

Basically, I want to get rid of all the rows that are of a certain color (let's say green, InteriorColor = 4). I've already come up with a way to delete rows based on color, but I have to take into account the Conditional formating i'm using.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Now Formula

Feb 19, 2010

My attached spreadsheet is for tracking when certain tasks were completed on each case and figuring the number of days that it takes to complete these tasks.

The task I am needing help in formatting is the Corrections Received field (column E). We need to track the cases that do not have corrections received within 7 days of the changes being requested (Out for Corrections, column D). The issue is that there would not usually be a date entered in the Corrections Received column when we need to look at those cases...because they would not be received yet. In order to not get an extreme default value (like the -40181 or 40922), I entered the =Now() function in column E (except for first case as an example of what this would look like otherwise).

What I was hoping to be able to do is use conditional formatting to look for that Now() formula. If the formula is present, the cell would be highlighted. If a date were entered, even if it was today's date, the fill on that cell would be removed. That way we could tell when the displayed date is a true date and when it is a placeholder until we receive the information.

Currently, it either highlights no matter what the cell includes or it doesn't highlight anything...

## Colour Rows Based On List Colours (No Conditional Formatting)

Oct 3, 2012

As far as I can tell Conditional Formatting will not work for this problem.

What I need now is some code to colour the rows in the data sheet ("Standards_Data"), so some other code (which is working fine) can then colour data points on a multiple graphs (which will be on the "Graphs" sheet). I've played around with as much code as I can find but nothing has the flexibility that I need or doesn't seem to work at all.

The idea is that users can adjust the colours using the Column A on the "Graphs" sheet to best highlight certain things. Also this list could then be edited as old Standard ID's become redundant and new ones come on line.

So in a nutshell: Colour rows in "Standard_Data" based on value of Standard ID (Column 4) according to the corresponding colour found in the list in the "Graphs" sheet.

I've attached a trimmed down version of the workbook.

## Conditional Formatting Entire Rows Based On Specific Columns?

Mar 25, 2014

I have been trying to find a way of formatting an entire row based on the contents of cells in each column. However i come unstuck when trying to make the column dynamic. Below is an example:

Month
2010
2011
2012

[Code]....

The idea is that i say current year is 2011 and all rows where C contains an a will turn green. What i would like to achieve is that when i change current year to say 2012 the conditional formatting adjusts so that it looks at D instead of C.

## Conditional Formatting - Duplicate Rows Based On Multiple Columns?

Apr 8, 2014

I'm looking for a Conditional Formatting formula that will check two columns before highlighting the duplicate rows. I need it to be conditional formatting because I know nothing about writing macros or vba (what-ever that is?). Data is entered into Columns A, B, and C. I need to check both column A and C before it highlights the duplicates, based on those two columns. (The format only unique or duplicate values checks only one column.) I have attached an example, but this is just an example, as I have hundreds of lines to go through on the original. (For this example, Row 2 and Row 7 are the duplicates I need highlighted.)

## Hide & Show Rows Based On Multiple Conditional Formatting

Aug 6, 2009

I am trying to hide/show entire rows of a range based on the conditional formatting in the row. I want all rows with at least one overdue training cell (indicated by a red cell) displayed, and rows with no overdue training hidden. The conditional formatting formulas vary greatly, but always result in a white (unchanged), yellow, or red cell. Here is a sample picture for reference:

[url]

The CF formulas vary based mostly on two major factors: the frequency of the requirement found in Column "C" (Monthly, Quarterly, Semi-Annual, or Annual Requirement), and the personnel's arrival on site or date of departure (wheels up) found in Rows("3:4"). Each training class has two rows. The first row indicates the last time the class was completed, and the second row shows when it is due next. Both rows have to be displayed/hidden based on the second row's conditional formatting. Here is the code I am using right now: ...

## Conditional Formatting - Based On Formula - If One Of 3 Criteria Are Met Then...

Jun 23, 2009

I am drawing a blank. I want to use conditional formatting in cell b2 that will outline the cell(I know how to do that) based on a formula. The formula I need would determine if cell a2 is 26,27, or 28. Or function just returns true/false. I would rather not use 2 formulas.

## Cell Formula Based On Conditional Formatting?

Dec 3, 2012

Say I have the following....

12345678910
59465465495652505853

I conditional format the top number which in this case is 65, how do I highlight the number directly above it? Either by another conditional format or some formula that picks the number out. I've tried HLOOKUP and VLOOKUP, but its giving me spurious results.

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting Of Table Rows Based On Value In Column?

Jan 2, 2014

I'm working in Excel 2010.

I setup a table with a column titled "Type". Each value under column "Type" defines the type of row it is: "Section", "SubSection", "SubSubSection"

I wish to create a set of conditional formatting rules that apply to data rows in this table, each rule controlling how cells within a whole row should be formatted, according to the value found in "Type", for that row.

Example:

Rule1: [@Type]="Section" -> fat red line on top of cell.
Rule2: [@Type]="SubSection" -> thin black line on top of cell.
Rule3: [@Type]="SubSubSection" -> dashed black line on top of cell.

I can't seem to make this work.

How can I leverage the nice column names, and the "@"-this row designator, within a table to create conditional formatting rules that apply to all the cells within a row, in the same way one can refer to in table formulas?

## Conditional Formatting Formula Based On Text In Two Cells?

Jan 8, 2014

I need a formula for conditional formatting which highlights a row if A has the text "Ex" and B has "Paid".

## Excel 2010 :: 3+ Conditional Formatting Rules For Cell Range Based On Formula From Other Cells

Feb 5, 2013

how to apply conditional formatting via VBA to a range of cells based on input from another range of cells. Obviously this would be easy in Excel 2010, but I'm still using 2003 at the office and it needs to stay in this format to be readable by other users:

For cells M8:EK8, my conditional formatting
condition 2: Formula Is =AND(\$E\$8>=M2,((\$E\$8-\$D\$8)>=(N2-\$M\$2))), color index is 40
condition 3: Formula Is =AND(\$F\$8<=M2,\$G\$8>=M2), color index is 39
condition 4: Formula Is =AND(\$H\$8<=M2,\$I\$8>=M2), color index is 40
condition 5: Formula Is =AND(\$J\$8<=M2,\$K\$8>=M2), color index is 39
and so on

The cells in the range M8:EK8 are blank, they only get colored based on input added to D8 to K8. If there is no input, then the cells should be uncolored.

## Conditional Formula Based On Another Cells / Rows Text / Number?

Jan 25, 2013

I am wondering if I could have a formula be used against a certain row/cell containing a certain "phrase" or "number" for instance

I want E1 to read something like this = (row containing item "FF32105") (the given row from the previous statement) ( the input column ex. B) (the input value ex. *6)

Essential I want to be able to copy and past a sales forecast and have the formulas automatically (listed below the pasted forecast) calculate purchase needs. The issue is that if our forecast one month has a certain item and then the next does not then they will end up on different lines after the copy/paste. We have over 500 items so a manual adjustment would be time consuming..

Is there a possible way for the formulas to "find" the correct line to start calculating data?

## Formula Equaling Zero Is Not Equal To 0

Dec 14, 2009

I have a simple formula which subtracts one cell from another. I then have an if and statement which checks if that cell is equal to zero. If so, continue processing.

The problem is that the formula always reads the cell as not equal to zero although the result of the formula contained in the cell does result in zero.

## Sum Of Columns Not Equaling Formula

Jan 2, 2012

I'm using excel to keep track of information at work and have formulas set to figure out totals weekly. The problem comes about when I sum up each column, why doesn't the column totals use the same formula as the top.

Example would be

2 X 5 = 10
3 X 8 = 24
4 X 5 = 20
6 X 5 = 30

15 23 84 sum total of all columns

15 X 23 = 345 why do I come up with 345 instead of 84 when using the same formula as above

## 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???

## Conditional Formatting For Two Rows

Feb 15, 2012

I have a spreadsheet with 10 columns and 8000 rows. column 2 contains names and 3 contains districts of residence.

I need to highlight (or delete) whole rows of duplicate entries in the name column(2) that are in the same district (column 3).

Traditional conditional formatting highlights all duplicates. I just need those duplicates in column 2 that have the same text in column 3.

## Getting Conditional Formatting Rows?

Jun 7, 2012

I have rows of information linked to other sheets with forms to fill out (master sheet). I want to be able to have a red fill if one of the cells is blank, which I do have working now, but I want a clear row if the "indicator cell" is blank.

## Retaining Conditional Formatting On New Rows?

Jul 16, 2013

I have a spreadsheet for recording property maintenance. All properties are grouped by a city zone in a specific colour, and there is conditional formatting on this. Also drop down lists for properties, contractors etc.

This all worked well, until I needed to start inserting rows. All the conditional formatting and lists didn't replicate on the newly inserted rows.

Also, we need to assign a unique reference number to each row but currently manually inputting them - very inefficient way of doing this as they will inevitably get mixed up and confused as rows are removed.

## Conditional Formatting For Multiple Rows

Jul 8, 2009

I have a spreadsheet of a couple hundred products, their sales over the last 18 months, and then each product's 18 month average monthly sales. What I would like to do is format them so if any of the months' sales are below their respective average, that cell/month with be highlighted. Excel told me that I cannot do this for multiple rows at a time, and I don't want to go row by row for this many products. Attached is a sample file of the first row.

## Copy Conditional Formatting To Other Rows

Jan 15, 2010

I'm running a spreadsheet at the moment in 2007, and one of the funcitons I've made it for certain cells to either change format if the number is to big or to small depending on the cell it is.

I have formatted all for one line against duplicate scores on the same line.
The problem is this is time consuming and there are 22 different lines.
Because with Conditional Formating you can't simply drag like you can with formulas, I was wondering if there was a more simple approach. I have demonstrated the formating required on Row 6, and require the same formating on rows 8:10, 14:26, 32:36.

Also, just to make things complicated, the values change for each line.
I have attatched the file. Row 6 with the label DEMO LINE contains all the correct formating I require.

## Conditional Formatting On Different Rows With Different Query

Aug 20, 2013

I have the following data:

C D E F G
Jan Feb March Q1 TargetThreshhold
£ 2,067 £ 1,978 £ 2,161 £ 2,100 £ 2,310

£ 1,492 £ 1,422 £ 1,611 £ 1,600 £ 1,760
£ 2,718 £ 2,683 £ 3,263 £ 2,400 £ 2,640
£ 2,853 £ 2,335 £ 2,481 £ 2,300 £ 2,530

£ 1,067 £ 1,133 £ 1,246 £ 1,400 £ 1,540

And I am wanting to use conditional formatting. But wondering if there is an easier way than what I have at the moment.

The Formatting im using is:

=\$C4>=\$G4 Where value is TRUE the cell returns red and this applies at the moment to the First Row.

Is there a way I can get Conditional formatting to recognise the next cells without typing for each set of rows.

aka Row B would Read =\$D4>=\$G4

etc?

Id rather not have to do a conditional format for each row as I have about 50 rows of data to do this to

## Conditional Formatting For All Rows In Each Sheet

Dec 4, 2008

I want this macro to apply the conditional formatting to all rows in each sheet that have "BE" in col G. The macro works fine in Cell A2 only. And only on the worksheet that I have active at the time that I run the macro. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

## Using Conditional Formatting To Delete Rows

Jul 26, 2007

I have a worksheet that I use Conditional Formatting to check the dates in a total of 5 columns. In those columns, if the date is before 8/1/2006, it changes the cell color to red. Is there a formula I can put into Condition 2 to that would then clear out the whole row if within those 5 columns there isn't a red cell? This would take hours of work off of my slab.
