A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.
Can Conditional Formatting be set on multiple values? I cannot get this to work with any formula, the cell values are not between two values. For example: for value = D or R, or X change color to green. (I would have another condition within a range F to Q)
I have a conditional formatting rule that checks for misspellings of client names.
My employees input client names into a spreadsheet, and I need for the spreadsheet to notify them via a fill color if they have misspelled the name.
So, I set up a rule for each client name using the specific text criteria.
The rule simply checks for the client's name, and fills the cell green if the client's name is correct. If the client's name is misspelled, then the cell remains unfilled.
This works great if the client's name is spelled correctly, or spelled incorrectly.
But there's one hitch:
If the client's name is spelled correctly, but there is some extra character(s) inputted after the client's name, the cell is still filled green even though the data in the cell is useless because the extra character will cause it to be rejected by the next party down the line in the value chain.
So I'm hoping to find a way to make the specific text containing criteria operate with only the specific text I specify and no extra characters or anything after the specific text.
I have an Excel report I have to generate. I need "Call Back" (F3) to show highlighted in red if time value of (F3) is = to or greater than 4 hrs. of "Time Reported" (C3) and highlighted in green if value is before 4 hrs. Also "Arrival Time" (G3) needs to be highlighted green if within 24 hrs. of "Time Reported" (C3) and highlighted red if after 24 hrs. of "Time Reported" (C3).
Excel 2000. I am having a little problem getting the list of numbers detailed below to turn red if Negative and Green if positive, (0:00 to stay blank). These numbers will changed between a maximum of 120:00hrs and -120:00hrs....
I'm trying to use conditional formatting to highlight phone calls that came in between certain hours.
The call times are in the custom format h:mm, although it could easily be changed to an Excel time format. I'm using Excel 2002. I want the cell to have a different fill color if it falls within particular time frames.
If the call came in between 22:00 and 23:59 color is light green. If the call came in between 23:59 and 08:00 the color is yellow.
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
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.
How to get "some specific holidays" highlighted by doing conditional formatting in series of "date columns"?? I got to know how to get "sunday" highlighted...but again problem with specific holidays...
Is it possible to check the conditional state for a specific condition for a specific cell. For example a cell has 1 or more conditions.
A condition will toggle to a condition if true or false etc. The specifics is i use red (color 255) if a cell has not met a specific condition (of 1 or more conditions) So if the cell is mandatory to be populated, and is blank, it will be red, if not it will be something else.
But i want to loop all visible cells with conditional formatting, and where the cell has a condition when true will show interior color = to 255 return the cell address. To msg the user where data entry is still required etc.
How to use conditional formatting to show a certain criteria. I need to know if an event happens between 07:30 and 16:30, I can work this out so that the cells show in green. I cannot solve the problem of formatting in red if the time is after 16:30 but before 07:30.
I would like to use Conditional Formatting to format a cell depending whether it past a certain time, such as 3:45 PM. Naturally, entering the time as the condition does not work. Is there a way to do this?
I am trying to work with conditional formatting to turn a field a specific color based on two conditions, one of which is variable. The first condition is a list of ongoing events (which can change) and the second condition is a set of known milestones. I want to create a control (check boxes?) that will turn a given field (which has dates in it from another calculation) to either Red, Yellow, or Green.
I was thinking two Dropdown boxes - one for the events and one for the milestones. The user would choose an event, choose the milestone, then choose a checkbox or something to change the color of a field elsewhere in the spreadsheet. Right now, I'm doing this in a very clumsy way by having three checkboxes for each milestone for each event. There are five milestones per event (so 15 checkboxes per event on Sheet2). I will likely have 70+ events so I was hoping for a better way to do this. I've done this for the first three events and need a more efficient way of doing this.
See the attachment : Event Milestones based on Go Date Uploadable.xlsx
Attached is a workbook. I have manually highlighted the cells to give idea of what I would like the outcome to be.
Moonah OPS sheet.
In Row 5(Shift times), under the drop down menu in cells B5:J5, there is a range of Shift times. And for the purpose of this I have selected B5 as 0800:1621, manually highlighted B11:B27 C5 as 06:00, manually highlighted C7:C24 D5 as 07:00:1521, manually highlighted B11:B27 E5:I55(RDO, REC, SICK, Travel) can remain as manual input if it is to much to work out.
Is it possible or just a pipe dream, to use some method to automatically highlight a range of cells based on the C5:J5 'time'?
If the time is an actual shift time, the colour will be green and dark green writing as default, then we can allocate jobs/training/meetings and manually colour them.
Daysheet DAY MONTH YEAR template - Highlight.xlsx
However I am trying to apply this to a whole column but the numbers are not (D5,B5) moving down (to D6,B6), When I use the format painter it is taking too long as I can only merge conditional formatting on one cell at a time and I have 30 colums and 390 rows to apply this formatting to.
I have set up a spreadsheet with a set of dates occurring in one column.What I would like is for the cell to highlight in yellow if the value is 3-6 months ago more from today's date and then highlight in red if the value is 6 months or more from today's date.I'm using office 2013 if that makes a difference
I have a column contain cell with value of dates. The value is from Vlookup formula. The problem is when I try to do color code to yellow for any past date from current date to all cells that contain the date value in that column, I dont see any change.
The formula I used for past date from current is =today()-1 (so that should be correct). So, I am wondering why none of the dates that past do not change the color thru the conditional formatting I did.
The Conditional formatting formula I used:
"Format only cells that contain" -- > Cell Value -- > less than or equal to -- > =today()-1
