# Conditional Formatting For Entire Row Based On Presence Of Any Text / Values In Column

Oct 19, 2013

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.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Text Values.

scenario: Column H needs to be formatted to green if the text in Column F does not equal "Dog". Dog could be either DOG, Dog or dog. I know how to get it done with only dog, but this one is a bit tricky.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Entire Row

May 20, 2014

I am trying to apply conditional formatting to one cell based on the values of cells in a row.

This is what I have at the moment

E3 = TODAY()
E4 = TODAY()+90

If any date in the row falls between E3 and E4 i would like the font in another cell to turn red (in the example below A11 should turn red if any date in B11:J11 is between E3 and E4).

This is the formula I've been trying:

=AND(\$B\$11:\$J\$11>=E3,\$B\$11:\$J\$11=E3,\$B\$11

## Conditional Formatting Entire Rows Based On Specific Columns?

Mar 25, 2014

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

[Code]....

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.

## Formatting Text Based On Numeric Values In The Next Column

Feb 12, 2009

I am wondering if it is possible to format a cell that contains text - based on a number in the cell next to it. Here is what I have:

Category......Mean
Results.........3.3
Morale..........3.8

I would like the word 'Results' to display in BLACK text because the mean score is in the range 3.0-3.9 (same goes for the word 'Morale'). I would like the word 'Buy-In' to disply in GREEN text because the mean score is in the range 4.0-5.0. Basically, the mean scores are calculated using formulas and I would like the color of the category to change based on the mean score number. Is there a way to use conditional formatting to do this? Or another way to automatically make this work? File is attached.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Top 10 Values In Adjacent Cells?

Jun 3, 2014

I have a matrix in excel to show % and \$ for multiple columns - set up like this:

Rows Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
Criteria 1 % \$ % \$ % \$
Criteria 2
Criteria 3

the \$ columns are conditionally formatted to highlight the top 10 values on the matrix. is there a way to have the corresponding % cells also highlighted? The % and \$ aren't both top 10, so the % would have to be highlighted based on the \$ top 10 cells.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Cell Values In A Range?

Jul 30, 2014

I have a range of cells where each row relates to an employee.

In Cells (Columns H:L) I want the range of cells on that row to turn blue if the user puts a "H" in one of the cells.

Also it will need to be adapted for "O" , "Y", "X" - each with different colours.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Value In Another Column

Feb 17, 2014

I have a value in column H7 as 2000.

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.

## Conditional Formatting Multiple Number Values But IGNORING Text?

Sep 6, 2013

I have a spread sheet where there are multiple rows of price quotes from different suppliers.

Some suppliers have quoted, some however have not and there is a "#N/A" or "no bid".

SupplierA
SupplierB
SupplierC
SupplierD

1.3
No Bid
2.3
No Bid

How can I get a conditional format to check each row for the lowest numeric bid, highlight it but ignore the text?? What I have tried so far doesn't work.

=G31=MAX(\$G\$31:\$J\$31)

This does not seem to work, I don't know how to exclude the text values from the MAX function.

I want to:

a. conditionally format the amounts in column a to turn green once I put the 'p' in the adjacent column

b. conditionally format the sum in A6 to exclude amounts that have been paid, and only display the total amount of the unpaid lines.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Multiple Text Criteria?

Mar 1, 2014

I'm trying to set up conditional formatting in a spreadsheet where there are 3 possible correct letters that can be entered into a range of cells and if one of these letters is not entered then I would like the cell to be highlighted.

To be more precise, it's an accommodation spreadsheet and in each cell if someone needs a room for that particular night (each night is represented by a separate column) then a letter is used to indicate what type of room they require i.e. "k" is a king room, "s" is a Suite and "t" is a twin. I don't want to force people to have to select from a list which would be the obvious solution to this as it is simply too cumbersome for the amount of data entry we do.

However i want to ensure that if someone accidentally enters anything other than t,k or s then the cell is highlighted. We work in large spreadsheets covering months of dates so to manually have to find any errors is hugely time consuming.

## Traffic Light Conditional Formatting Based On Text?

Nov 4, 2013

I'm trying to create a dashboard with traffic lights displaying the status of a task. My manager wants a to be able to pick a color (Red, Yellow, Green) from a drop down menu and then have that be displayed as a red, yellow or green traffic light. Using the conditional formatting option, I'm only able to use numerical values or a formula. I'm hoping there's a way to either create a drop down list with the 3 different colored traffic lights or a way to use VBA to have the conditional formatting search by text instead of numbers.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Color Or Text Of Another Cell

Jun 14, 2013

1 2 3 4 5 6
1
2 x x x x
3 x x
4 x x
5 x x
6 x x

Assume that is the table i have. In row 1 i need conditional formatting such that if any of the columns contain an x the first row should be color coded. In my above example every column in row 1 will be color coded expect for row 1 column 6 since there are no x's for any any row in column 6.

How can i do this in excel.Also instead of x's if i have manually entered color can we do the same ?

## Excel Conditional Formatting (Color Cell Based On Their Values)

For the respective date i want to color my bars from G10 to P10.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Selected Values Of Two Dropdown Menus

Dec 9, 2011

I am building a spreadsheet with a column having two drop down menus at the top that designate independent, but strict conditions. For simplicity, say I have in cell A1 a drop down menu with choices "alpha, beta, gamma" while A2 has a drop down menu for "1, 2, 3". These six values sit off to the side in cells X1, X2, X3, X4, X5 and X6 respectively.

In cell A3 I woul like to change its color, perhaps to green because it is an acceptable number (say less than or equal to 100) or change to red if unacceptable, value greater than 100.

I can do both of these commands in Excel, no problem. In my situation, I would like to change the value at which cell A3 goes from green to red dependent on the options in A1 & A2. There are 9 such combinations of alpha, beta, gamma, paired with 1,2,3 and I would like the combinations to change the fill color of cell A3 in the following manner:

If A1 = alpha and A2 = 1, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 100 and red for values greater than 100.
If A1 = beta and A2 = 1, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 80 and red for values greater than 80.
If A1 = gamma and A2 = 1, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 60 and red for values greater than 60.
If A1 = alpha and A2 = 2, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 95 and red for values greater than 95.
If A1 = beta and A2 = 2, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 75 and red for values greater than 75.
If A1 = gamma and A2 = 2, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 55 and red for values greater than 55.
If A1 = alpha and A2 = 3, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 92 and red for values greater than 92.
If A1 = beta and A2 = 3, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 72 and red for values greater than 72.
If A1 = gamma and A2 = 3, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 52 and red for values greater than 52.

How to create a cell that can change its conditional formatting based on the selected values of two drop down menus.

I have a few other conditions I would like to implement, say change the fill color of A3 to green, orange or red dependant on the values in A1 & A2, but I might be able to crack that if I can see how the above scenario is done.

## Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting Based On Two Previous Values

Feb 19, 2013

I'm creating an excel document that tracks the amount of time someone has (in months) in the program. Certain residents are able to 'fast track' if they meet conditions, and I am trying to create this spreadsheet so that anyone who looks at it can tell who qualifies (and when).

The issue I'm having is with conditional formatting, because I don't know how to do it with mutliple conditions.

Column C is their previous time (months) in the program
Column D is their current time (months) in the program
Column E is their total time in the program (Sum C+D)

Coumn E is what I would like to format, based on the following rules set out in the program manual:

If previous time is 9 months or more, a resident is eligible to fast track after 6 months current time (format green).
If previous time is less than 6 months, a resident is eligible to fast track after 9 months current time (format green).

I understand that their is an odd gap - but these are the rules currently set out by the program manual, which is what I have to follow.

I'm using Excel 2007 - if that changes anything.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Status Column?

Sep 29, 2011

I am putting together a worksheet with all my teams tasks. I have columns A:U and Status is column "M". What i want to do is when ever i select Complete from the list in Column "M" i want to the row to turn Green.

I tried the following:

Selected the Range
From Conditional Formatting menu selected Manage rules
Selected new rule then Use formula to determine which cells to format
formula i used =\$M\$2=complete and selected green from the format menu

BUT nothing is happening. What am I doing wrong.

BTW the Values in Column are Complete,Development, Not Started Research, QA/UAT. If I can conditionally format based on these selections that would be even better.

## Check 10 Different Text Values And Return False For All Of Those In The Conditional Formatting Rule

Sep 13, 2007

Allows me to check like 10 different text values and return false for all of those in the conditional formatting rule. When those are not present, the conditional format is true thus applying the format.

I tried
=NOT(FIND("text1",\$A\$1,1))
It did not work because I believe this statement doesnt give the rule its TRUE value its looking for.

I am having trouble with this, to clarify I need the below...
Cell has conditional formatting checking for text1 text2 text3...text 10ish and if they are present nothing will happen and if they arent present then format the cell.

EDIT: to clarify, the code should look for either text1 or text2 or text3 so on...

## Macro To Auto-Copy Entire Row From Master To Worksheet Based On Column Values

May 19, 2014

I have an Excel database of department contracts with a Master worksheet. I have created a worksheet tab for each of the departments. Column G has a dropdown list for each department. When I enter a new contract onto the Master I want it to auto copy to the coordinating worksheet based on the selected department.

If possible I would also like it to enter the newest contract would enter into the coordinating Contract Party entered into column D. (ie... If Hospital A is entered in column D on master, the new entry on the worksheet being copied to will be entered under the last Hospital A, if Hospital B is entered on Master it copies under Hospital B). If this isn't possible then I am not too worried about that part.

I have attached a blank version of the file. Current Master 5-15-14.xlsxâ€Ž
