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
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.
I am trying to apply a conditional format to an entire row based on the presence of any value in the first cell of that row to format to a certain color. If there isn't something present in the first cell, I don't want it to change.
Everything I keep trying ends up highlighting the entire workbook.
I would like to apply the rule to the entire sheet but only have it highlight the rows which have a value/text in the first cell of each row.
I am assuming I should use the formulas selection for conditional formatting but I'm unsure of what formula would apply to this type of request.
I am using Excel 2010. I have a pivot table where I want to highlight the ENTIRE row where a certain cell value equals something.
In essence I want all the Material Subtotal Rows highlighted "Orange" But as you can tell from the picture below I am having issues with the Body of the Pivot table. I have the formula checking to find whenever it finds the word total to highlight it.
The example below is showing how I need the row to be formatted. I can get the Data (Units) section formatted no problem. It is just the other part of the pivot table that I cannot format.
For the columns from Material to SAP # I have been trying to use Dynamic Name ranges using the Offset function. However, excel turns that Name range to a range and if I filter the pivot table, it adds extra ranges to the Applies to box and starts to really mess it up.
I want to highlight an entire row based on the contents of of a particular cell. For instance, if c4 contains data, highlight the entire row 4. If c5 is blank, do not highlight the entire row 5...and on and on...
I'm trying to come up with a macro that can delete an entire column based on formatting of the cells. Basically what I have is a range of cells, and if all cells in a particular column have no fill color, then delete the entire column.
I need to make an entire column formatless if the cell in row 3 contains no text. I want the whole column to just appear like a normal formatless column, but if there is text in the row 3 cell, I want it to be the way I have it formatted right now.
In Excel, I want to do conditional formatting on a cell based on the value of another cell. For example: in cell A1, I have text. I want this cell to have a grey background if the value of cell B1 is less than or equal to 1/31/14 and to have no fill (default) if it is greater than that date.
I have a worksheet which has the years 2001 to 2013 on in row1. I am trying to find a way of highlighting the entire row in green if a specific year contains an "a" (Marlett, tick). The complex part is that I would like the specific year to be determined by an entry input into cell A2 on sheet 2. See Attachment for reference.
I am working in a table where I would like the whole row to highlight based on the value in one of the cells. These rows of data will be updated regularly, so the formatting has to change with the data.
I want to format a cell conditional on the value of another cell. I have read numerous threads on the topic and no matter what I do, it doesn't seem to work for me. I've made it a simple as possible by creating a new workbook and entering:
A1: 5 B1: 2 C1: Some random text - this cell has the conditional formula: ="A1>B1"
However, the cell doesn't get formatted. Here is a screenshot and here is the simple workbook.
I am attempting to apply conditional formatting such that cell B3 is green if it is greater than or equal to cell B2, and red if less than cell B2. Then to apply this conditioning across the row of data (i.e. C3 >= C2 green, C3 < C2 red; D3 >= D2 green, D3 < D2 red; E3 >= E2 green, E3 < E2 red ... etc.). Needs to be formatted such that if I change the value in cell B2, the colour of B3 is automatically updated.
I have columns M to X labeled Jan to Dec. I want to highlight in yellow values in the row M7 to X7 if they are greater than 2000!
Then, I need to copy this conditional formatting down the columns under M to X, but under column H the values will be different, but I still want the same results, values greater than the value under column H then highlight in yellow.
I thought I had the answer but when I tried to copy down, it was making cells yellow that were clearly less than the column H value.
how to create VBA code for conditionally formatting a column of dates that have expired. My unique challenge is that I first need to associate the item attached to the date with the expiration date of a particular group. Therefore, I have to first match the Item label with the appropriate group, and then I need to evaluate the expiration dates of both the Group and the Item. If the Item expires before the Group expires, then I need the Item date to be formatted in bold and with a red font.
Attached is a sample spreadsheet.
Thoughts about how to accomplish this with VBA? By the way, VBA is the necessary approach due to the fact that the data is updated several times per day, and all existing data is erased prior to uploading new data.
I have a spreadsheet I'm trying to make which will have various cells change color based upon the date entered compared to today's date. Here are the details of it, and what I've tried to do so far:
Various safety tickets that employees acquire have a 3 year expiry date on them. What I want to do is be able to enter in the issue date, and then have the conditional formatting color the cell that contains the date based on the following criteria:
Green = More than 6 months remaining Yellow = Between 6 months and 30 days remaining Red = 30 days until expiry
Black = Expired (I wanted to eventually add this one, but Excel 2003 was only allowing me to add 3 conditional formatting conditions, so I just went with the 3 colors. I'm getting Excel 2007 later today, so I might be able to add more with that)
Now here is what I have so far:
3 years = 1095 days, 2.5 years = 913 days, 2 years and 11 months = 1065 days
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...
I am manually formatting column J depending on what data is entered into column K. If the number entered into the cells in column K are equal to or less than what is in column J, I format the data in the cells in column J with the green you see above. If the data entered in the column K cells are greater than column J, I format it in the red shown above.
So, how can I have Excel do this for me, format column J cells depending upon what is entered into column K cells? The caveat here is that I also don't want any formatting to occur until data is entered into column K.
