Conditional Formatting And A VBA Code To Make Sure The Cond. Form Is NOT Active

Nov 5, 2008

I am trying to add something to a spreadsheet. I want to do some Conditional Formatting but I am not certain on what the formula would be to accomplish it. I am putting the Cond Format in cell E5 and I need a formula to say: IF F5 AND G5 are BLANK then do the format I set up which is simply to fill the cell with RED. (.ColorIndex = 3)

The next portion of my problem is I need to revise my VBA Coding to check and make sure that there is not any cells in Column E that have the Formatting Active. This is the portion of code I need to alter. I have changed the wording of the message but am not sure on how to change the IF statement:

'Checks to see make sure there are no Actions or Resolutions WITHOUT a Topic

If Sheets("Meeting Minutes").Range("C1").Value = "" Then 'NEEDS TO CHANGE

MsgBox "Oops! You forgot to enter a Topic for Discussion in a cell(s). You MUST have a Topic in order for your Meeting Minutes to transfer to the Master sheet." & vbCr & vbCr & "Please click OK to return to the Minutes sheet so that you may fill in the Topic(s).", vbOKOnly, "CAUTION! PLEASE Note!"

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.StatusBar = ""
Exit Sub
End If

Conditional Formatting To Make Dues Dates

May 9, 2014

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.

How To Make Conditional Formatting For Negative Numbers

Feb 19, 2014

I need the conditional formatting to make all numbers that are zero clear (i.e. no fill).

I need it to make all negative numbers to be red, however it doesn't seem to recognize "-1" as a number, and ends up highlight everything red when I say "highlight values < -1 red".

How would I do this?

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.

Excel 2010 :: Icon Conditional Formatting Not Working When Formula Present In Active Cell?

Mar 20, 2014

I am trying to apply icon conditional formatting in a cell. The cell contains the following formula: =VLOOKUP(D20,'owssvr(1)'!O:W,9,FALSE The formula results in a "2", "1", "0" or "-1" in the cell. The icon conditional formatting is not working at all (no icon appears). I have the conditional formatting setup as numbers Green 2, Yellow 1,0 etc based on value. If I delete the formula and just type in any of those numbers directly, it works. I have changed my cells to "number" and it still does not work.

VBA Code Instead Of Conditional Formatting

Jun 30, 2006

Using conditional formatting, I set the font color to Green for Cell G12
=IF( SUM(G12) > C28,SUM(G12),""). This worked. However I needed 6 conditions for this formatting. Excel only allows for 3 conditions. My VBA code is not working. Can someone tell me the correct code?

For cells "G12,O12,G23,O23" I want the font colors to change if their value is
1. greater than or equal to Cell C28 (change to green font)
2. greater than or equal to Cell C29 (change to orange font)
3. greater than or equal to Cell C30 (change to brown font)
4. greater than or equal to Cell D28 (change to green font)
5. greater than or equal to Cell D29 (change to orange font)
6. greater than or equal to Cell D30 (change to brown font)

It is set so that if a value is enter in C28, D28 will have a zero value. Can only use one or the other. Likewise if C29 has a value, D29 will be zero and cannot be used.

The code I used was:.............

VB Code To Replace Conditional Formatting

Mar 20, 2009

I have a workbook that requires a VB code to help me out with Conditional Formatting. I use Office 2003 which is restricted to 3 conditions, I know there is an add in I can use that would help me do this but other people may use this that wont have the add in. I have decided to use VB if possible to get this done.

I have a range of cells from B22 T22 in these cells I will be putting codes, when these codes are put into the cells I would like the cells to shade a different colour depending on what code I use. Here is an example of what I mean.

P = blue

S = red

HL = green

ML = magenta

FL = orange

I may have a couple of more codes I will add at a latter time. Is it possible for VB code to do this?

Add Conditional Formatting Criteria With Code

Jul 18, 2007

I recorded some code and cleaned it up to apply a conditional format

Sub condi_format_I()
Dim wbBook As Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet

Set wbBook = ThisWorkbook
Set ws = wbBook.Worksheets("Summary")
Set rng = ws.Range("C4:P52")

With rng
.FormatConditions.Add xlExpression, Formula1:="=C4<0"
.FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 45
End With

End Sub

I would like to apply a custom color index to all cells in range C4:P52 if the value is less than zero.

But when I execute the macro, many cells receive the custom format that do notr match the custom format. Other cells that should receive the custom format do not

CountIf "Active" From The Conditional Formatting

Dec 29, 2008

I have in Cell M19 : =COUNTIF(F22:F71,"Active")

In Range (F22:F71) I have all the cells = "Active" but are conditionally formated to only show up when text is valid in a corrosponding cell.

So M19 is always = 50

How can M19 = only the cells in the range (F22:F71) that actually show up "Active" from the conditional formatting?

Optimize Slow Conditional Formatting Code

Jan 23, 2008

I am having a little trouble with this code, which runs in my simple but efective ressource overview. It loops through a rather large range and assigns interior colour to the cells based on certain criteria. On my stationary machine (Excel 2003) it takes approximately 15-30 seconds to run the code which is acceptable. On my laptop (Excel 2007) it takes 5+ minutes which is unacceptable. Is there a workaround so as to optimize the speed? Further, when I run this workbook on Excel 2007, even entering an integer in the sheet takes 3-4 seconds, and no code is running! In my first version I used a Change_Event to colour cells on the fly but this was slow and prevented multible cell editing as well as pasting values into the appropriate range.

Public Sub Farvelade()
Dim icolor, Navn As Integer
Dim TargetRow, LastRow, Previous As Long
Dim Target As Range
MsgBox "Det kan tage 15-30 sekunder at opdatere ressourcekalenderen"
Range("A5"). CurrentRegion.Select
'Set range
ActiveCell.Offset(Selection.Rows.Count, 0).Activate
LastRow = Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row.....................

Macro To Add Conditional Formatting Code To Variable Range

Jun 12, 2008

I am working with a large report that needs to be broken out and sent as separate files to recipients for confidentiality purposes. I'd rather not use views/protection since there are many different ways particular people need to see the data, plus it is a very large file and flattening it works to everyone's advantage. My goal is a macro that will copy each tab into separate workbooks, paste special values, and save as each as Cell A1 (or the tab name-same thing). I have tried recording macros and editing (I'm very new to VBA) many times but it's a mess.

If Workbook Event Is Active Make It Visible

Apr 12, 2012

I have a boolean toggle for disabling and enabling a Workbook_Change event.

Right I invoke macros to turn the Workbook_Change event on and off and I don't know what state it's in.

Two Questions:
1) (required) I would love to be able to visually know if it's enabled no matter which sheet I am on
2) (bonus) Be able to change the state with a persistent interface (e.g. perhaps the Ribbon?) no matter which sheet I am on.
