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.

If back Order if morethan 0 and due date is < today "over due" will appear. and if backorder more 0 due date is today, "due today" will appear.

View 3 Replies View RelatedI am wondering if it is possible to use the Conditional formatting to color a row when a specific cell has a value ( Number or text etc..)

I have values in cells A1,B1 & C1

If I enter a value in D1 , I would like to have A1,B1,C1 & D1 colored green

Is it possible to define a rule for this?

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

I have this formula in Q and it fills it w/ a color.

=($Q551>0)

To fill the entire row, I have to come back and select from A:Q and then it fills the remaining cells. Can this be done in one step?

I am using Excel 2007 and having some trouble with conditional formatting an entire line.

What I currently have is a formula in Column J: =IF(K9="Match","Match", " "). What I would like to do is if "Match" appears , highlight the entire row ( J : A ).

Please refer to the attached data sheet. I need the D27 to be formatted so that it shows a value only if the value in D8 exceeds the value in D7..

- Hightlight items, C2:C5, then choose Format ->Conditional Formatting

- I choose Formula is, and the format in the condition box is =">50%"

- Finally, I choose Format to choose the color.

I think I do the right steps but Excel doesn't show anything.

In a range, say A1:D5, I need to format cells as follows:

1) If cell contains only "H" or "HV": highlight red

2) If cell contains only a number: highlight blue

3) If cell contains a number with the letter "F" ("1 F" or "5.5 F"): highlight pink

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.

Is there a way I can have excel automatically highlight all cells within A1:A3, B1:B3, C1:C3 if and only if they are greater than the percentage in E5? If so how would I go about doing this?

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 need to hightlight from A1:A18

In the above cells I have values from 1 to 4

So I need to fill the cell with 4 different colours.

If cell equals 1 = Green

If cell equals 2 = Yellow

If cell equals 3 = Red

If cell equals 4 = Blue

What I do is highlight cell from A1:A18, clik on 'Format', 'Conditional Formatting', I've tried using 'Cells Value is' and 'Formula is'.

I have a worksheet that has times based on 7 minute intervals. If I post 10:37 AM in cell b5 then again in cell b6 I would like b6 to highlight.

I'm trying to use countif($b$3:$b$15,b2)>1 to highlight duplicate times in column B. For some reason it will not work for me. Should I use something different?

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.

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 using conditional formatting to highlight all cells where the value <> 0.00. It's working for 98.9% of the records, but for some reason, about 5 of the records with 0.00 are being highlighted for some reason. I've checked the field formats and they're the same as the other numbers.

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 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.
