I have a gantt chart that was built in excel. I need to shade cells in the timeline based on persons title under each project.
I can provide a snip of what the layout looks like for a better visual. I want the PM's Green, Supers Yellow and Persons Reporting Orange.
To get the green bar shown is using formula: =SEARCH("Project Management",$E17) , The issue with this is it fails to consider the start finish dates. For this particular project it works but when the formatting is "dragged down" the issue arises.
This might be a simple answer but... if A1 had the date 1-Jan-2010, what formula would I used, within conditional formatting, to make that cell turn blue once 90 has passed? So the cell should turn blue on 1-Apr-2010.
I would like to be able to put a value into a cell. By doing this I would like another cell next to it to turn a color. With that said, is it also possible to format a cell with several possible scenarios in one formula to be able to change the cell next to it a color?? Example is this lets say Cell B1 could have the letters, A B C D or E entered. So that the Cell A1 turns say the color Red.
I have 10 rows of 6 numbers, all between 1 & 49, in the range A1:F10. I also have the range A20:AW20, which are all currently blank cells. When I type a number between 1 and 49 inclusive into the range A20:AW20, any number that matches it in the range A1:F1 I want the cell to fill in colour.
I have a column with dates of July 1 of every year. How can I use conditional formatting to shade a cell a certain color based on July 1 of every year? The cell for July 2013 should be shaded, when 2014 comes, it is no longer shaded, then 2014 becomes shaded, & so on...
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 ?
I have been trying to make a macro to automatically calculate the quantity I need to increase or decrease our purchase orders.
As the On Hand quantity decreases I have set conditional formatting to determine how much we should order according to a percentage of the Stocking Level and turns the desired cell yellow. For each row the macro would need to identify which cell in columns L through O is yellow from conditional formatting, use that value and subtract the On Order quantity, then put the result in the Adjust PO Qty (+/-) column so I know how much to decrease the order if negative or increase if positive.
I have two columns. In column B is the date of "last check". I column A is the date of "next check". I would like to have cell A2 in yellow color 334 days after the date entered in cell A3 and than in red color 365 days after the date entered in cell A3. Same thing for cell B2 related to date entered in cell B3. Yellow color in cells announces that check will expire within 30 days and red color that check has been expired.
I have a spreadsheet that uses VB macros to calculate sums of cells based on the font color of the numbers inside. It used to be fairly easy going through each cell and "classifying" them by color, so that my macros can go ahead and sum the numbers in each respective color's cell... but now I have a huge amount of numbers and would like to automate the process somewhat. Here's an example using the A and B columns:
flight $400 hotel $150 hotel $130 meal $20 meal $15 flight $350
I tried using conditional formatting to automatically change the color of the adjacent cells based on the presence of a keyword such as "flight" or "hotel", but this change is only cosmetic, and doesn't actually change the font color (it is still the default black, hence why my color-summing macros won't work!).
I'm including a sample macro for what I use to color-sum my cells, but what I am looking to automate the color-coding process based on looking for keywords as explained above in my example. Here is one of the working color-summing macros (for red, in this case) if you'd like to use it as a reference:
Function SumRed(SelectedCells As Range) ' Adds the values of the cells where the font colour is red(3). Dim Cell As Object Dim x As Double
Via conditional formatting, I am searching to change the color of a specific word in a cell (not the color of everything in the cell, but only that specific word - and the word repeats in the cell). A function such as =isnumber(search("NOK";A1)) colors all the cell values, which I do not want to do. How i can perform this task?
I look everywhere to find a formula for a conditional formatting to make dues dates.
I would like to know if it's possible to do conditional formatting to make due dates turn green and yellow 90 and 180 days before their dues dates? The reason I am asking this question, it's because the column that where dates are, they are coming from a VLOOKUP formula and it's coming from another workbook.
