Conditional Formatting Using If Statement On Opening Of Workbook
Oct 19, 2005
I have several worksheets in a workbook that has dates of completion of
various training topics. Some of these topics require annual (12 months),
bi-annual (24 month), 6-month, or even 2-month re-training.
What I am trying to accomplish is to automatically shade all cells for dates
that fall within one month of these periodicities based on the computer's
clock when a workbook is opened. Unfortunately different columns have
different periodicities so what I was planning on doing was putting that
monthly number in a cell ("12" in A1000, for example for all Column A
values). When the file is opened, if any of the dates in column A are more
than 11 months from today's date (A1000 minus 1), they are within one month
of needing to be re-trained and I want the cell shading to be a light
Is there "code" for different formatting in a spreadsheet so you can use an IF statement to do something like:
etc.?? But replace "blue background" and "red text" with some sort of number code? I want to compile a list of the items that are formatted with certain background colors and/or text colors and then organize only those items into a chart.
I wish to use a formula to highlight a date based on two criteria in two separate columns;
The first is the Date that will be in Column B.
I want it to highlight the date if : Today() is greater than that date in the cell plus 5 years (or 1824 days)
The second criteria I want is for the date to be only highlighted if the corresponding cell (in column A) does NOT contain the term ("Basic")
I have the formula:
which highlights the date correctly IF the term in Column A is "Basic" : But I cannot figure out how to insert the NOT statement to make the formula flip around so it only highlights those dates older than the 5 years requirement and NOT contain the "Basic" in column A.
I have several rows with data in and what I would like would be to total the amount of time "CU" is displayed and if that number is less than say 10 the formatting is applied. I need if possible to be able to do this via the one condition.
Can you do a IF statement in Conditional Formatting? I need a column to highlight Red if there is a blank in it based on the current time COMPARED to the stated time in another column (on a separate tab)
So if current time is 1:30 PM and the stated (appointment) time on the other sheet is 1:15 PM, and my control field is still blank, I need it to turn Red.
Set MyRange = Range("A1:AZ9615") ' Range to apply format to
For Each Item In MyRange Select Case Item.Value Case "1780", "1800", "1810", "2050", "6170" Item.Font.ColorIndex = 3 'x = 3 Case Else x = xlNone End Select Item.Rows.Interior.ColorIndex = x
I want it to search that range and turn those Numbers in Quotes to Red, which it works fine, but Somtimes those numbers are Imbedded in a string excample "1810-1-DAV". So my Question is When It turns my normal numbers red, how can I get it to turn the STRING RED ALSO?
I am trying to eliminate the use of formulas for conditional formatting in my code. I heard that the CASE statement might work for this. Below is the code I have but the case does not like the second case statement.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range(("S2:V" & TTRows), ("W2:W" & TTRows))) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Target
Case Is >= 0.8 icolor = 3 Case is >= 0.7 and not >= 0.8 icolor = 6 Case Else icolor = 0 End Select
Conditional formatting. I have been tasked with creating a simple game for a group training project.
The game consists of users filling in the answers to questions (simple one word text answers). My boss wants to have a master sheet with the correct answers, and a subsequent sheet that will then compare the employee's answer to the master sheet. If the employee's answer is correct, then the output sheet simply displays the correct answer, however, if the employee's answer is wrong, he would like the output to display the correct answer and highlight the cell.
Is there a way to have the output sheet highlight a cell only when the answer on the employee sheet is different from the master sheet? I was thinking along the lines of using an if statement to see if the values of the employee sheet differ from the master sheet, but I do not know how I would then use that result to highlight the cells in the output sheet.
Cell BM22 is a percentage calculation of the differences between two different days of volume for this stock and that formula is: =(BH22/BH25)-1 Cell BM22 currently is calculating the result to be -65.65%
When I set up a CLASSIC Conditional Formatting using a formula (="If($BJ$20=""SELL""") to check the if the text in cells BK10 match the text displayed in cell BJ20 - I get no error messages and no formatting?
I am using Mac Office Excel 2011. I feel like I have tried everything including changing the Number selection type of the cells to TEXT. Nothing seems to works.
I have a need to open a file from my companies intranet. My current method was to open said file via the method that the recorder gave me. However, I would like ot be able to open a said file without having to start open another workbook.
This is the path: [url]
So the command is this: Workbooks.Open [url]
Links are not actual links
So what I need to know. Is how can I open this file without opening a workbook. I haven't been able to use the VB "Open Statement" to open a file and I don't believe that I've been successfull using the Filesystem object either.
I am using the below code (i have combined different bits of code which i found on these forums) to open a new workbook, copy all the data in it and paste it into Sheet2 in the active workbook . Also, i want the data to be pasted on the next empty row as there is already data in Sheet2. The data that is being copied and pasted has the same format and it is going to be repeated many times.
The problem i am having is that it is not offsetting the data to the next empty row - i think it is a simple change but i can't seem to get there :s
Also, the code is currently selecting all of the data from the workbook that i open - is there a way i can select all of the data, excluding the first row (the first row contains the headings which i already have in Sheet2 in the active workbook).
I have created userform and it works fine. Following code assigned to 'SUBMIT' button in userform - works fine. I am trying to include code where certain data from userform is also copied to workbook2 ( of course without opening it)- as marked in red...below
I have a spreadsheet that data gets exported to from a software program. There is information such as customer name, part number, inquiry number, etc that I'd like to use to develop a log of all my estimates I create for parts. I'd like excel to take the cells I select and insert them into certain cells in the other workbook and automatically save that workbook. This will create a log of all my estimates where I can then link the full estimate to the log. The information will have to go in the next available row. Is there any way I can accomplish this without having to open the other workbook and save the work book each time?
I'd like is for an automatic job to be set up on my machine (windows) that opens the CSV files, formats them, then closes the file (as a .xls doc). So that anyone subsequently opening the file opens a formatted spredsheet.
I tried setting up the auto_open macro function, but I have trouble because I need to select the data (which is in delimited csv format) before I run the formatting routine, opening the file and running the file can't cope with this because the selection (Col A) has not been made even though I include the column selection before the formatting when recording the auto_open macro. the error reported is:
runtime error 1004: no data to parse
So is there a way of doing this??
To format the data, I use the following steps:
1, Select column A 2, Data>Text to columns>delimited>~ (~is the delimiter) 3, Column data format text for col A & B 4, Select all (top lh box above cells) 5, auto column width (double click on a column boundary) 6, select columns C to I 7, centre justify
I have software that exports to an excel file. The files are one or two page reports. The way the software dumps the reports into excel, it comes out looking pretty rough. The rows and columns aren't spaced very well, the fonts look like garbage, and nobody likes them.
I would like to apply formatting changes to these reports automatically without the end user having to do anything. So as soon as the document is opened up it bolds the column headers, adjusts column widths etc. The reports are auto generated so no formatting can be done when the reports are made.
There may also be different formatting done to different reports. The files will come out named something like, "Report_A_DDMMYYY.xls, Report_B_DDMMYYY.xls," etc. Report A, and Report B will likely need different formatting.
I'm not opposed to using VBA or whatever might be necessary to make this happen. I can learn anything I need to pretty quickly, I just don't know where to start with this.
A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.
I have just added some code to make my workbook close after it has been inactive for 5 minutes...this works fine except it opens itself up again after 5 minutes. If I select 'Enable Macros' it closes immediately and if not, it will stay open.
Here is all of the code I put in for the auto shut down:
I currently have a workbook that, when opened, automatically kicks off a macro (with a call from the Workbook_Open event in ThisWorkbook). I was to run that same called macro from a custom button that I put on a toolbar in Excel itself...which is pretty straight forward. However, when I do this, the macro kicks off twice...once from the button and once because the called macro's workbook opens and kicks off the macro with the Workbook_Open event.
So, what I was thinking was...is there a way to tell if a workbook is being opened by another workbook (by calling it's macro) or whether is was opened "normally (manually)"?
My friend emailed me a workbook. When she or I open the workbook, it opens two instances of it. Is there an option in excel that is causing it to do this? I need to send this a client and I do not want this to happen on their side.
I have a workbook that consists of 3 sheets, it's a template I use. Once I am done filling out sheet 3, I save as a new workbook. When I have to go back to the template workbook it always opens on sheet 3. Is there anyway that once I open the template workbook it will open on sheet 1?
I have created an Add-in for use across the business, the add in calculates financial impact based on figures that are stored on the shared drive.
The addin currently opens the workbook, and sets the variables to figures contained in the workbook - and then closes the workbook.
To roll this out to the business - I need to get the add-in to open the workbook as read Only, so that it will allow multiple users to access at once. I have set to open as read only in the past - however this prompts me to save the workbook as something else.
Is there any way I can get this to just open as read only, do what it needs to - and then close; without having the option to save as something else?
As above i have a macro which opens a workbook which is on a network drive. This works fine for my multiple users...however i have discovered that if they do not have the drived mapped with the same drive letter at the start...it will throw up an error advsing that the file does not exist. Is there any way to by pass this.
Ex - "TestFile.xls"
File is stored in "E:NetworkTeam1Testfile.xls"
However, some users have access to this file and it is mapped as E:, but some users have been mapped as F: The advisors who have been mapped as F: cannot access the file. Is the VBA/Macro smart enough to bypass the drive letter and just search the rest of the past...NetworkTeam1Testfile.xls".
