The Problem: There is data in a step chart from left to right. On a separate step chart, Conditional formatting is set to lookup values from the first step chart and highlight non empty cells in the row. The formatting should only format the first non empty cell from left to right in the row. After formatting the first non zero value in the time line the formatting should cease. Note: the conditional formatting value and the value of the cell being formatted are not the same in either value or time but are related. The formatting is to illustrate the relation

I've been asked to assist with modifications of an excel spreadsheet. One of the features is a column that has a formula of what the total order should be. For example, 1 base order of 25.00, plus 1 bonus order of 18.00, plus 2 bonus orders of 15.00 would be $73.00 due. Then data entry persons enter the actual amount collected. Is there a way to highlight either the cell or the result if the amount collected does not equal the amount due? I know I can accomplish this with another column, but they want to keep the columns to a minimum.
This is for a non-profit agency and the orders are now at 1000 that must be entered within a day or two period, so they want to keep the fields to a minimum so as to make the entry easier for those doing the input. And they would like the data entry person to see an immediate flag if what he or she enters as collected does not equal what is due.
I have in a range B10:B110 formulae that returns a number. When I try and use CF to highlight the lowest number, it does not trigger. Is it not possible to have both a formula and CF in the same cell, that triggers the CF.
I am working on a spreadsheet in Excel 2007 and i am trying to use a formula in the conditional formatting that will highlight a cell if the date is prior to today's date and the next column over is no. the formula i am using right now is =IF(F2>TODAY(),IF(G2="NO",TRUE,)). the problem i am having is that it is highlighting all cells that have a date and the next column over is no.
i can't figure out how to get it to do an if this, then that function correctly. one other thing that could potentially be causing my problem is that the cells. I am trying to have highlight are calculated themselves based on a formula. see the attached spreadsheet for information.
I have a spreadsheet where I have a column of dates and I want conditional formatting to highlight the cell red if the date is less than or equal to today but if the cell is blank to do nothing.
At the moment I have the following formatting applied using the "format only cells that contain" option I have cell value less than or equal to =TODAY() except that obviously highlights every cell red that doesn't contain a date. Is there another conditional format I can apply in addition to this that will not highlight the blank cells ?
I have a spreadsheet that keeps track of staff training. in colum A is the date they completed the training. this training expires in 5 years time. i would like the cell to highlight red when the date has expired. and when i enter the new date in 5 yrs time the cell to return to no fill color.
I have 3 rows with numbers across several columns, each cell holding one number only. For example:
R1: 1101 - 1102 - 1103 - 1104 - etc. R2: 2101 - 2102 - 2103 - 2104 - etc. R3: 3101 - 3102 - 3103 - 3104 - etc.
A little further down I am having a list where the end user will write down the exact same number. Once the same number has been written into the list, I would like the number shown in the top rows (row 1 to 3) to be highlighted in green, basically telling the user that the number has been entered into the list below and is ok now.
I need a macro that will highlight a row based on a cell criteria. I have used conditional formatting but there is a lot to format and has dramatically slowed the sheet down. However, I know nothing about macros/vbas.
E.g. If it states JI sent then I want the whole row to be highlighted light green.
App form needed = peach Waiting list = light blue Cancelled = red font strikethrough DNA = purple font strikethrough.
Also - it could well be that in the row it has App form received, JI Sent and DNA all in 1 go. So ideally I would want that row to be highlighted light green with purple font strikethrough.
Booking Status JI Status Date JI Sent Attendance Cancellation date Chargable / non chargable Cancellations Chargeable / non chargeable DNA Date taken Time taken Event Title Start Date Time
For obvious reasons, the conditional formatting to shade alternate rows doesn't work when filtered. So I think I need another way of doing it. Luckily, my table is fairly static, rows aren't added or removed. The first column is excluded from the banding. As is the first and last row with data (1 & 67) respectively. I found a relevant thread here, but the code is beyond my understanding.
I have a spreadrsheet (sample attached) which populates a calender due to columns on seperate sheets being filled with text and corresponding dates. I started using conditional formatting to highlight certain conditions but soon realised I need more than 3 so I tried looking into VBA - and failed.
All the cells in the calender have the 3 usual conditions associated to them but in addition I need to be able to colour individual cells if they contain certain phrases or parts of phrases like "BP" or "Current"
i am trying to highlight the cells red in the b column if a3=d3 (if names match) and if b3<e3 (only if name is "a" should e3 be used to compare with b3). hope this makes sense. i've attached a sample worksheet.
i've tried =if(b3<e3, (vlookup(a3,d3:e33,1,false),true)...but does not work correctly. i need the average weight to remain constant according to the name when comparing, but if i drag the formula down to other cells, the average weight does not correspond to the name.
What i want to do is highlight all row instances where that row column10 has the text "Roller" . All i can see is the forumular =$J1="Roller" ive tryed to select just the single cell J and tryed the whole row and a range. Though i get a error message about =-+ quotation ect.
