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?
Using conditional formatting I can change the font color (to blue) of a cell if it meets a certain criteria. Now what I would like is to display a message when the color changes to blue. The cell range is E26 to E40.
I have a simple sheet that has columns I-K. My issue is that in column K I am dividing J/I. If both J and I cells have a "0" then I get the #DIV0 error. If both J and I cells are blank then I get the #VALUE! error. I need it so that if the cells in J and I have a zero in them then it places a 0 in K. But if both J and I are blank then it puts something else that I can have Conditional formatting change the font color so column K looks blank. I think the IF formulas I am try to use recognize blank cells as zeros as well.
I have two conditions setup in Options>View - Zero Values.", "style="background: #FFFFFF;padding: 2px;font-size: 10px;width: 550px;"");' onmouseout='GAL_hidepopup();'>formatting.htm" target="_blank">conditional formatting. The first is setup for alternate row coloring with this formula inside Conditional Formatting:
Formula is = MOD(ROW(),2)
My Second Condition is
Cell Value is between $P$10 and $Q$10. This sets the font bold and a different color. The two cell values are two dates. I want to change the cells font color and bolding as long as the value is within that date range. It works fine, but for cells that are on the row that is colored the second condition doesn't apply for some reason.
I am trying to set up conditional formatting in cell C4 to change the font to a smaller number based on the value of C4. If C4 = 0 then Font Calibri 16, otherwise Font Calibri 24. However, the font size is not availabe, it is greyed out. Is there another way to accomplish this without using VBA? In the worksheet could I use an if() statement to change the font size?
I have four conditions that dictate font colors in column "d" of "sheet1" and am using the following Private Sub Font_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Set Myrange = Range("D2:D1000") For Each Cell In Myrange
If Cell.Value = "Started" Then Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 3 End If If Cell.Value = "Pending" Then Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 4 End If If Cell.Value = "On-going" Then Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 18 End If If Cell.Value = "Completed" Then Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 6 End If
Next End Sub
1. Does this code look valid? 2. Do I paste the code in a "module" or in a worksheet object? If I add this to a module, how does the code know to reference sheet1? 3. Is there a handy reference guide that shows color codes? If so, where can I get a copy.
I found in the web-site a great VBA code that replaces the "Conditional Formatting" option in Excel. The problem is that it changes the "fill color" and I also want to change the "font color".
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C4:C14")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case 0 icolor = 2 Case 1 icolor = 4 Case 2 icolor = 39 Case 3 icolor = 45 Case 4 icolor = 37 Case 5 icolor = 15 Case Else 'Whatever End Select
I work with some stock index data and I would like to get rid of some dots and empty spaces etc. I used conditional formatting and changed the font color of all the values I need. When I try to sort them based on font color (in order to delete the empty spaces/dots) Excel does not do it. "Go to...conditional formatting" also doesn't work.
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 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 two columns. The first one (A) contains cells that have different Fill colors. The second column (B) contains text adjacent to the colored cells. I am trying to change the color of the text in the second column (B) to the corresponding color in the adjacent cell in the first column (A). I don't think conditional formating works well in this situation. I believe the solution would be some sort of macro.
I have font color white in blank cells in column E and I (from row 5 to row 245) so the visitors will not see the text. If any of these cells become yellow (color code is 6), the font color will become black so visitors can see the text alot far better than white. I've tried this code myself after this post but nothing happen
I'm trying to make a tracking sheet of upcoming annual inspections for different pieces of equipment. I've already got a column set up listing the inspection due date. Using three conditional formats, the individual cells change color based on the amount of time until the inspection is due (green normally, yellow at 30 days out, red past due).
What I'd like to do is have the entire row of information change color based on the color of the cell the inpection due date is listed in. For ex. J6 lists the inspection date as 24-Feb-07 and is therefore red, I'd like A6-I6 and K6-P6 to change to red as well. And when the inspection is compleate and I manually change J6 to say 25-May-07, I'd like all of row 6 to change green based on the fact that J6 is already going to.
This appears to be so simple, I've searched the forums and have found almost the right VB code but not quite. I have a 3000 row spreadsheet with various columns. Column M can either be PASS, FAIL, REJECTED, IN PROGRESS or NOT ASSESSED. I need the rows (A to M inclusive) to change colour and text colour dependent on this condition.
I almost had an answer with Select.Case but I couldn't get the formula to work with text, only numbers.
Is it possibe to change another cells color (Fill) based on what is placed in that cell? Example: A1 =if there is an "x" in A2 highlight A1 Green, but I have information in A1 also. Or if I had a different cell say= if there is an X in A1 Highlight A1 Green ect.. This key is to highlight a cell that I have information in based on a different cell having an X in it. If ther eis no X in the cell I have indicated, nothing needs to happen.
Is it possible to write VBA code that will prevent a user from changing a cell's contents, depending on the cell's font color?
More specifically, I have a column of text in range B15:B64. Some of the cells will have a black font, others will be blue. Is it possible to lock the black font cells only, leaving the blue cells unlocked for users to change?
I have a database which I want to send to my peers. I want to set a rule which will enable me to keep track of the data which are changed. For instance, in a cell if someone edit that number, the color will change from black to red.
I have a spreadsheet that contains the 5 digit numbers in the rows and the columns respecstively. I'd like a formular or macro to change font color for each cell. If the combined value of the 5 rows are greater or less than the combined range 87030 and 87200, the 5 cells will be changed to Red. If:.........
I'm trying to have a macro run to search a specific column (S) for a particular text value "y" and if true it will change the font to bold and the color to red for the entire row of the cell that contains the "y". the column is part of a data table that is constantly refreshed not sure if that makes a difference or not.
I am creating a heat map using two variables from a questionnaire: firstly the number of people impacted by a question; and secondly, the level of the impact. Respondents are asked to give these values in two adjacent cells. These are then multiplied to give a weight eg 1000 people x level 3 impact = 3000. I have used Conditional Formatting to colour the cell according to the impact level (0 = none - white (default), 1 = moderate - tan, 2 = significant - orange, 3 = high - red). What I want to do is then change the font size to give an indication of the number of people impacted, eg 1 - 1000 font 8, 1001 - 3000 font 12, 3001 - 8000 font 16, 8000 - 2000 font 24 etc. The size of font and colour will then represent the number of respondents and their impact.
I can't use Conditional Formatting as the value of 3000 could be derived from 1000 people at level 3 (red), or 3000 people at level 1 (tan). Is there another way of setting the font size depending on the cell value, eg by VBA?
I need to conduct keyword searches in excel and color the keywords a different color without changing the font color of the entire cell. now, i found some code from another thread that does this, but i cant seem to get it to work with more than 2 keywords. i need fine-tuning the provided code to do what i need it to do.
the VBA code i used was this:
I was playing around with the example, the Cat_Mouse.xlsm, and when i modified the 'myList' and 'myColor' arrays, it does not work.
For example, I modified the code to add the word bat:
When i run the macros, the word "Bat" does not become colored red. interestingly enough, when i substitute the word "bat" for the word "hat" in the "myLIST array, the word "hat" does change to the red font.
I am looking to use this code to address keywords in my excel file by coloring all key words red and i have more than 10 key words.
