Conditional Formatting To Return The Following Results If The Criteria Is Met
Jun 19, 2009
I have a conditional format that does not seem to be working for me. Cell B2 has a drop down optionSelect, No, Yes); Cell B3 is supposed to be conditionally formatted to return the following results if the criteria is met:
If B2 is equal to No or Yes then colour should become Yellow
If B3 is >0 then colour should become Blue
The problem is when B3 is greater than 0 it does not change the cell colour to Blue.
B3 Conditional Format #1 is =AND(ISTEXT(B2),B2<>"Select")
turn background to yellow
B3 Conditional Format #2 is =AND(ISNUMBER(B3),B3<>0)
turn background to blue
See attached for spreadsheet with conditional formats
I have a report that shows when our company has shipments covered by inventory (although you are not seeing the conditional formatting in the table). Columns K:Q represent shipment dates and shipment amounts. Columns D:I represent inventory with Column J being the total inventory. The conditional formatting works to highlight the cells in K:O of when shipments are covered by inventory. I need to be able to return the date (Columns K:Q) for an item (Column B) when a shipment is not covered by inventory.
For example Row 154: all shipments are covered by the amount of inventory. A shipment of 3 on 04/24 is more than covered the 105 pieces of inventory. But for Row 170, the shipment for 480 pieces on 04/23/12 does not have enough inventory to cover.
The result I need to return for row 170 is that 480 pieces are due on 04/23/12 that are not covered.
What formula would I used to return that value?

i am trying to count some cells in a range that are coloured either Red, Amber or Green. the cell colours are defined using conditional formatting. each cell has different criteria for the conditional formatting, but the outcome will always be one of Red, Amber or Green.
i have used the code that is in the FAQ section (the '=ColorFunction' code) and this works fine if the cells are coloured manually. as soon as conditional formatting applies the colour, the formula seems to stop working (even after manually recalculating the worksheet). i have attached my spreadsheet - i am trying to solve the formulae in cells B21:B23.
I have a cell which I want to colour green if C6>9, yellow if O6>60 and red if BOTH C6 and O6 are above their respective numbers. The first two parts of this are obviously straight forward, but I cant work out how to get the third part of it to work.
On sheet "master" I have a list of goals in column A.
Each has been assigned to at least one person. Each person will have their own sheet that will capture the goals assigned to them. As an example, see Al's sheet.
I am trying to get Excel to look for all of the goals assigned to AL on the Master sheet and list them nicely onto AL's sheet without out blank rows. (and for each, respectively on their own sheet). I could do this with Pivot Tables if the data were displayed differently, but I have been told that I have to display the goal assignments as shown.
I could use "x"s instead of their names to mark the assignment and I could combine the "goal-achieved expectations" and "goal #s" columns if it helps. I am not supposed to use filters either.
Note: Of course, a goal or an assignment could change on the master sheet, but the assignment is more likely to change.
how this done for AL, I can go ahead and create the other sheets.
I am wanting to have conditional formats so the cell fill in a range on sheet 1 will change to:
- red if the value of a cell on a seperate sheet (date) is greater than 18 months old - yellow if the value of a cell on a seperate sheet is 'In progress' - green if the value of a cell on a seperate sheet (date) is less than 18 months old
Is there "code" for different formatting in a spreadsheet so you can use an IF statement to do something like:
etc.?? But replace "blue background" and "red text" with some sort of number code? I want to compile a list of the items that are formatted with certain background colors and/or text colors and then organize only those items into a chart.
I would like to perform a search on only the worksheets listed in a worksheet titled table of contents. I would like to use multiple criteria for this search and send only the unique results to a worksheet titled results. Each worksheet listed in the table of contents has a cell address for each heading that I would like to extract data from the same column. The attached workbook example shows the data that I would like to collect when I search for cells that begin with "AB" and cells that begin with "CD". I collected this data by copy and pasting all the data from each worksheet into the results page and then applying filters and advanced filter to remove duplicates. This method does not work well for the original workbook as the data is quite extensive.
I'm desperately trying to work out conditional formatting for different dates.
I have =TODAY() in F3
In the remainder of column F (from F19 to F625) I have either blank cells or varying dates (dating back to 2011 and dates going forward into 2014).
I need to Red/Amber/Green the following:
Green = any dates which are 45 days or more in the future from today's date Amber = any dates which are between +1 and +45 days in the future from today's date Red = any dates which are today's date or a date in the past
I can get one or two of the criteria working i.e. Green and Red, but not the Amber. Is one overriding or ignoring another?
how to create VBA code for conditionally formatting a column of dates that have expired. My unique challenge is that I first need to associate the item attached to the date with the expiration date of a particular group. Therefore, I have to first match the Item label with the appropriate group, and then I need to evaluate the expiration dates of both the Group and the Item. If the Item expires before the Group expires, then I need the Item date to be formatted in bold and with a red font.
Attached is a sample spreadsheet.
Thoughts about how to accomplish this with VBA? By the way, VBA is the necessary approach due to the fact that the data is updated several times per day, and all existing data is erased prior to uploading new data.
I have a column of information. The first cell has the record number. Then there are criteria the record must meet. If any of the cells have N for nonCompliant, i would like for the record number to change colors. If it were only one citeria, i think i know how to do that, but because there are as many as 10 I'm not sure how to make it change colors for all ten unless i do it one cell at a time.
Also there are several thousand columns on different worksheets, how do i apply the conditions to each column without doing it manually?
I am trying to figure out how to set up a spreadsheet, that comprises a list of open-entries, wherein the user will insert their information and a % out of 100 assigned to them; the entire form, in the end, cannot go beyond 100%, so each entry has to be done correctly...
BASICALLY my problem is that I am trying to set up the " Total %" cell, which is already assigned the formula "=SUM(D5:D16)" (D5 through D16 being the cells in which %'s are assigned) so that it will auto-populate with the appropriate color/error if the %'s are either insufficient (short of 100%) or exceeding (above 100%). What I had been trying to set up (and have successfully set up in other spreadsheets, however under slightly different circumstances) is a Conditional Format in which the first (with the color Red for "exceeding") was " =If(SUM(D5:D16)>100,SUM(D5:D16),SUM(D5:D16))
" So regardless of exceeding, exactly met, or insufficient totals, it would post the total entered, BUT assigning the color red, so that IF it did, in fact, total higher than 100, it would appear red. A similar formula would be applied to Green (reflecting "on target") in which the formula would be " =If(SUM(D5:D16)=100,SUM(D5:D16),SUM(D5:D16))"
Now the problem is: this is not working for the SUM of the cells. In my previous experience with Conditional Formatting and color assigning results, it had been with the AVERAGE of two columns of cells.(worked without a hitch.)
I have a worksheet titled "detail" containing 3 cells which automatically and independently change colour subject to their proximity to various dates. On a new worksheet titled "overview" in the same workbook I would like to have one cell which changes colour if any of the 3 cells in the other worksheet are triggered.
I am drawing a blank. I want to use conditional formatting in cell b2 that will outline the cell(I know how to do that) based on a formula. The formula I need would determine if cell a2 is 26,27, or 28. Or function just returns true/false. I would rather not use 2 formulas.
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?
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.
I would like to have excel check if eight of ten of cells in a row are above a certain criteria, then if they are format the tenth cell to be red...so excel checks the ten cells above and if eight of them are above a certain number then that cell shades red.
The code segment from "Get Around Excels 3 Criteria Limit in Conditional Formatting" works perfectly if I type the variable directly into the cell, but not in a range of cells. That is to say, if I copy the source cell to a range of cells I receive a "Run-time error 13: Type mismatch" error". Is there a way to get around this? This is the code segment I've tried in the worksheet.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer If Not Intersect(Target, Range("b2:q53")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case "IBBCH", "ibbch" icolor = 36 'light yellow Case "OBBCH", "obbch" icolor = 34 'light turqoise Case "OBBRDG", "obbrdg" icolor = 35 'light green Case "LNCH", "lnch".........................
I recently learned how to count cells in a range based on the value from another column (excel 2007) How to count cells in a range based on the value from another column but now how I can go about returning a value from another column that matches the conditional counting. For example in the table below I'm first wanting to find the rows matching "chr15" from column A that also have a value from column B that is greater than 25,000 and less than 3,000,000. But what it I wanted to instead report the corresponding values in column C? I've played with VLOOKUP to no avail but I'm not sure if that's the right line of thinking. The answer would be the values in bold.
A B C 1 chr2 12008 AA 2 chr2 149700 BB 3 chr15 51 CC 4 chr15 5624 DD
Column b in sample is conditionally formatted based on it's values. I want to also apply that same formatting to the person's name in the chart in D2:I9. For example, Jeff is in bottom 50% so cell B2 is shaded red with red text. I would like to apply that same red shade and red text to all the cells in my chart that say Jeff. Also, as example, all of the cells in my chart that say Kelsey would be formatted with green shade/green text and so on...
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.
I am trying to do a conditional formatting based on the result in one cell but it needs to add up multiple cells first to determine which conditional format it needs to use. I am not sure whether I need to do a formula conditional format or whether to use cell is greater than with =sum() in it. I have tried both but neither seem to be working correctly. I have attached an example of the spreadsheet and the conditions I am trying. I am using 2010 version.
Basically, the closing amount for Monday in prod 1 (cell c4), needs to display in red if sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4) & Fri (R4) is greater than that value or display in amber if the sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4).
I need to complete the same for the whole column for Monday (col C) for each appropriate product. Then the same for column B but this will sum different cells but the principal will be the same.
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
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...
