I am having an excel workbook consisting of 11 sheets. Can I apply conditional formatting to multiple sheets at the same time?

## Conditional Formatting - Comparing Worksheets

Dec 5, 2008

I have 2 worksheets - one is a monthly update, the other is last month's data.

I want to highlight the changes on the monthly update sheet using conditional formatting.

I named the columns as ranges on the "last month" worksheet, and then used =Match(A1,Jan,0) (wheras Jan is the range on the "last month" worksheet where A1 resides)

What formula do you use to say "if A1 does NOT match a value in range "jan", then format it"?

## Conditional Formatting On Numerous Worksheets At One Time

Is it possible to perform conditional formatting on numerous worksheets at one time. I have about 50 worksheets that I would like to perform the same conditional format on. Is there a way to do this.

## Conditional Formatting Highlighting Data That Matches On 2 Different Worksheets?

Jul 17, 2012

I have 2 worksheets. One has locations with numbers, example:

275 Location 1
276 Location 2

I have all my locations on the second sheet, but in 2 different columns, listed with numbers only, example:
271 275
272 300

I have 2 scenarios I need help with.

1st:
If any of the numbers on sheet 1 match the numbers in column 1 on sheet 2, highlight the number on sheet 1 in green If any of the numbers on sheet 1 match the numbers in column 2 on sheet 2, highlight the number on sheet 1 in red

2nd:
If the number on sheet 2 matches any number on sheet 1, highlight green

I want these to apply to all the cells that have numbers (it could apply to all cells I guess as it should ignore it if it doesn't match, I would assume)

## Conditional Formatting With INDEX/MATCH Functions On Seperate Worksheets.

Apr 16, 2009

I know there are many posts concerning this, but after scouring, I couldn't find one that fit my situation. I have a total of six worksheets, I am only concerned with two worksheets.

Worksheet (functions!)

This one has a list of numbers formatted as general. (Column G)

Is actually a formula/macro that outputs a number... (didn't know if this mattered?)

## Formatting Multiple Worksheets In One Go

Is there a way in VBA to select all sheets in a workbook and format them the same? If the names and the number of the sheets are going to change everytime. For example if i wanted the page setup to fit 1 to 1 for all sheets in a workbook

## Run Formatting Macro On Multiple Worksheets

Jun 28, 2008

I am trying to apply a macro to evey worksheet. When I run it, it isn't moving on to other sheets. Instead, it starts from the beginning of the sheet i ran it on.

Sub full_Format()
Dim ws As Worksheet
For Each ws In Worksheets
Range("A1:D1").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.SpecialCells(xlLastCell)).Select
Selection.FormatConditions.Delete
"=MOD(ROW(),2)=0"
Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 15

Dim LastRow As Long
Range("C1").Formula = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-2],'[Yahoo Industry List as of June 27, 2008.xlsx]Master Sheet'!R2C[-2]:R1048576C[1],4,FALSE)"
LastRow = Range("B1:B" & Range("B1").End(xlDown).Row).Rows.Count
Range("C1" & ":C" & LastRow).FillDown ....................................

## Conditional Summary From Multiple Worksheets

Feb 12, 2008

In the attached WB I'm looking for some formula (for cells A6:C6 in the brown table) to summaries cells A2, in the different sheets, as per a criteria, located in cells A5:C5 in the brown table.

The criterias (A, B, and C) should check cells A1 of each sheet.

I would also like to know how to handle sheets named A, B, C, D, E instead of Numbers in such formulas.

So far for my question.

In addition - I tried some " Array Formulas" in order to understand the concept of solving such a problem - and came up with some "weird" results as you will see in the attached WB. Any additional word will be superfluous...

## Conditional Formatting Across Multiple Spreadsheets?

Jun 5, 2014

I'm trying to set up conditional formatting to show when an employee is both scheduled to be working for the current date, and is trained in a particular task.

I have a spreadsheet called "Training" for all of the tasks that employees can be trained in, with the employee names in each row, and the task names at the top of each column. The intersection of an employee's row with a task's column will have an "X" if the employee is trained in the task. This is the spreadsheet that I'd like to be formatted; if the employee is trained and also scheduled to be working, I'd like to the "X" to change to a different color.

There are separate spreadsheets within the same workbook for the schedule. This is a bit more complex since the since each week of the schedule has its own spreadsheet within the workbook; each spreadsheet is named for the Saturday of the week it is for, such as "06-07". I've been able to successfully have other formulas in the workbook auto-adjust to the current week's schedule by using variations on the TODAY function (something like INDIRECT("'"&(TEXT(TODAY()-MOD(WEEKDAY(TODAY(),1),7),"mm-dd"))), but I'm not sure how to incorporate this into conditional formatting. On each schedule sheet, there is a column for each day of the week and a row for each employee. The cell for a given day will contain the employee's schedule if they are scheduled, or it will be blank if they are not scheduled. So, the conditional formatting formula would just need to check to see if the appropriate cell was blank or not.

## Conditional Formatting For Multiple Rows

Jul 8, 2009

I have a spreadsheet of a couple hundred products, their sales over the last 18 months, and then each product's 18 month average monthly sales. What I would like to do is format them so if any of the months' sales are below their respective average, that cell/month with be highlighted. Excel told me that I cannot do this for multiple rows at a time, and I don't want to go row by row for this many products. Attached is a sample file of the first row.

## Conditional Formatting Over Multiple Pages

Dec 17, 2012

I need setting up a conditional rule over 2 pages.

Page 1 displays a list of countries.

Page 2 pulls in the RSS feed from the BBC World News website.

I need to find a way to set a rule that will highlight the country on page 1 if it is mentioned anywhere in page 2.

## Multiple Conditional Formatting With Date?

Mar 31, 2014

Despite 'Google is my Friend' and lot of test, I got a bug in my formula. I'd like to colorize date between (Today + 30) and (Today + 60) The line with the xlsBetween operator, fail...

[Code] ......

Existing solution : I know how to bypass this issue, but it's really an awfull solution : fill all column with orange, and then the Conditional formating will overrun the orange color when nedeed. Works but I don't like it ...

## Conditional Formatting With Multiple Conditions

Jun 10, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that contains a great deal of information, though most if it contains dates. There are some colums that contain the word "NEED" if i don't yet have the date to put in there, and the cell is yellow. What i want to do is set up conditional formatting to change the cell to pink if:

A)the cell contains the "Need"

and

B)The date in the corresponding row from column C is more than 15 days old.

## Multiple Criteria In Conditional Formatting?

Start dateEnd Date01/01/201101/01/201102/01/201101/01/201110/01/2011

The above is the result that Im trying to get and I just cant work it out,

Basically,

If B is Blank Format Red
If B is populated and A minus B is less than 5 No format
If B is populated and A minus B is Greater than 5 format Red

-- Im sure its easy but I just cant get it

## Conditional Formatting With Multiple If / Or Statements

I am having difficulties trying to get some conditional formatting done.

For the below i need to highlight the 2012 YTD Column based on the following conditions, and i cant get the formula correct

GReen = If 2012 YTD meets /beating both 2012 target and 2011 Actual figures =And(D2

## Conditional Formatting Multiple Cells

Jan 28, 2014

I need to conditional format a cell based on it's current value and a value in another cell.

For example:

Each person would have a different target. So if Steve has a figure of over 20 his highlights green, Paul 12 etc.

However each person would not appear in the same row each day.

The Conditional Forumla of =(A1="Steve.Smith")+(C1>="20") works, but then applying to all cells messes it up a bit.

25

Paul.Smith

14

Ian.Smith

15

Jim.Smith

20

John.Smith

18

## Conditional Formatting With Multiple References

Jul 18, 2014

I am working in a receiving room at a condo complex and am trying to facilitate how we handle and distribute the packages.

What I have in the first sheet of my would-be file is the unit numbers in a 28X12 array (12 units on 28 floors). I would like to make the array conditionally formatted to be highlighted in red to show that there is a package in for the unit in question. On the next sheet, I am putting information such as carrier, unit number and tracking number for each of the packages we receive. I want the unit number on the first sheet to immediately be red when the unit number is typed in the second sheet. When doing conditional formatting, it is easy to do this, by making the condition that the unit in the array will be highlighted when the unit is seen in the unit column in the second sheet.

My question is this: is it possible to somehow duplicate the references for the entire column that contains the unit numbers. I want a whole column to be the reference for conditional formatting of an array, so that I would be easily able to see who has a package in the receiving room, and who does not.

## Conditional Formatting In Multiple Cells

Oct 25, 2007

I am having a problem setting conditional formatting for multiple cells.
The first condition of the conditional formatting works for the cells but the second condition does not. There is probably an easy fix for this but I can't seem to find it.

## Multiple Conditional Formatting On Text

Aug 7, 2006

I need to employ conditional formatting to text on a spreadsheet - but using more than the 3 colours provided from the Format>Conditional Formatting menu.

I recently purchased the ‘Excel Hacks’ (100 Industrial-Strength Tips & Tools) book by David & Raina Hawley, Hack #92 details how to get around Excel’s 3-criteria limit for conditional formatting using VBA, but this solution only describes multiple formatting on numbers, not text. For example, if each letter of the alphabet were entered into separate cells, I would like each to appear in a different colour automatically.

## Conditional Part Cell Lookup Across Multiple Worksheets

Feb 22, 2008

We have the following formula in our timesheets. Basically when we enter a Job number in one cell in say Tab1, it will return the matching project name in a different cell that we have next to the project number. The job number match is done in the tab named "ProjectSchedule", where all the details of the project are listed. We need to extend the match range to include another tab named "CustomSchedule", but I can't figure out how to make the first formula search jobs from both tabs.

Current working formula:

=IF(C7="","",INDEX(ProjectSchedule!\$C\$3:\$C\$202,MATCH(C7 & "*",ProjectSchedule!\$B\$3:\$B\$202,0)))

What I'm trying to accomplish, but it not working is something like this:

=IF(C7="","",INDEX(ProjectSchedule!\$C\$3:\$C\$202&CustomSchedule!\$C\$3:\$C\$202,MATCH(C7 & "*",ProjectSchedule!\$B\$3:\$B\$202&CustomSchedule!\$B\$3:\$B\$202,0)))

## Complicated Conditional Formatting With Multiple Columns?

Apr 22, 2014

I have what I think is a pretty complicated issue. At my job, we have a running and constantly changing list of jobs that we have to work on throughout the day. The job management system is really unwieldy and itâ€™s often hard to tell what exactly we have to do today and what can wait until tomorrow. So a few times a day, I export the list to an excel doc, which Iâ€™m trying to set up with conditional formatting to highlight as green the stuff for today, ghost back what can wait, and leave white and blank the cells that donâ€™t have any info in them. I but the attachment system wasn't working for me, so I can't provide the example I've been working on.

So far, Iâ€™ve managed to set up a formula in the conditional formatting that takes into account column C, but I need to take into account information in columns B, C, and D to determine if the job line should be highlighted or dimmed. Column B is the job's title and it is just text, column C is the Begin date, and column D is the due date. hereâ€™s what I need the conditional formatting to do.

If the begin date in column C is Today at 9:00am or earlier, and the due date in column D is today, I need to highlight the column. I managed to figure out the first part of this formula, but donâ€™t know how to keep the line from hilighting if the due date is tomorrow: =\$C2<=TODAY()+TIME(9,0,0)

The second part is that I need to hilight jobs that begin and are due today (have todayâ€™s date in columns C and D), regardless of what time they have if the task title in column B starts with â€śRework Request from PSâ€ť or â€śRework Request from QA"

Ideally, Iâ€™d like to change the text color to something nearly white to sort of hide the jobs that donâ€™t need to be done today, and I figured that part out based on the formula I did manage: =\$C2>=TODAY()+TIME(9,0,1)

apply this to the whole sheet so I can paste the report into it a few times a day without having to rewrite the formulas in a new sheet every time, and the number of items does change throughout the day. However when I do, the empty cells turn green as if theyâ€™re due today, and I canâ€™t figure out how make them stay blank.

## Conditional Formatting For Multiple ActiveX Controls

Aug 11, 2014

I have a workbook with multiple sheets. I want to add conditional formatting for a cell on 1 worksheet based on if multiple ActiveX controls are checked (checkboxes) on another sheet. I have 10 checkboxes (now LinkedCells named "G1" -> "G10") on worksheet "Data Entry". The formula should be if all 10 boxes are checked on the "Data Entry" worksheet, cell "A1" on the "Milestone" will be gray. Any clues on how to write the formula for this Conditional Format?

## Conditional Formatting Of Duplicates Across Multiple Cells

Feb 25, 2014

I use the conditional formatting of duplicates within a column quite often. Now I am trying to highlight duplicates based on multiple cells in the same row. I can't seem to get a formula to make that work. I have four cells in separate columns but the same row, for example H2:K2, H3:K3, H4:K4, etc. I would like to highlight the four cells in that row if there is a duplicate of all four cells in another row. So if one, two or three cells are duplicates in the same column I do not want to highlight any of the cells, it should only highlight the group of four cells if all four cells are identical in another row. Pretty much the same way the default highlight duplicates works, just the value is spread across four cells.

## Conditional Formatting Multiple Rows Independently

Apr 22, 2009

I have an Excel worksheet with about 300 rows and 8 columns per row. I want to shade the highest number and the lowest number for each row. I assume the built in conditional formatting is the best place to start, but I don't really know. Sample worksheet attached.

## Can Conditional Formatting Formulas Have Multiple Statements

Aug 20, 2009

Can you have IF and AND statements in Conditional formatting formulas?

I put this and I get an error: =IF(AND(\$G5=""(\$H5=<>"")) I was testing the water for adding and OR statment also. I really want if cell G5 is blank and cell H5 or I5 has text, then G5 should be red.

## Multiple Criteria Per Conditional Formatting Rule

Is there a way color a cell red if the the text is "Z" or a number between 0.5 and 10

Or if the cell contains a "Z" or a "C" ....

## Multiple Criteria Per Conditional Formatting Rule..

Sep 18, 2009

how to adapt the solution so it would work in multiple cells. Since I was told to start a new thread, here it is. I want to format a cell based on its contents, If it has one of three entries, it should be greyed. I then want to use the conditional format across the whole page, but the solution given in the other thread refers to a single cell, how can I do this without that reference?

## Conditional Formatting Duplicate Value With Multiple Criteria?

Aug 21, 2013

formatiing a cell, e.g. change color to RED, in the event the value is a duplicate. To make it clear, I need to show that if the Serial Number of a product just entered is a duplicate and should change color when a combination of conditions is true. i.e. if a "part number" AND the currently entered "serial number" already exist, the entered serial numbers should change color.

## Applying Conditional Formatting To Multiple Cells?

Apr 25, 2012

If you have a range of cells with values in them (Q2:AZ2), you can use conditional formatting to identify the top x% of the group and it would essentially treat each cell in comparison to the group. I need to identify if a cell in the group is greater than 3*Stdev(Q2:AZ2). Do I have to create conditional formatting for each individual cell or is there a way to apply a function to the group that would recognize each cell the same way that the canned conditional formatting rules work?
