## Conditional Formatting To Flag The Row Green If Cell E2 Has A Y Or A N In The Cell...

Sep 1, 2009

I've set a conditional format to flag the row green if cell e2 has a Y or a N in the cell.

Currently i have the following conditional format formula is as

=IF(\$E\$2="y",TRUE,FALSE) this is set to change row to green
=IF(\$E\$2="n",TRUE,FALSE) this is set to change row to red

My Questions =

What i want to do is copy this formula through the 500 or so rows and have the formula adust to
=IF(\$E\$3="y",TRUE,FALSE) For row 3
=IF(\$E\$4="y",TRUE,FALSE) for row 4
=IF(\$E\$5="y",TRUE,FALSE) for row 5

Ect.

I've tried using the formate painter but all it does is set all row to conditionally format dependant on what is in Cell E2. Thoughts on how to copy this formula is conditional format so i don't have to manually adjust it line by line. Doing this 500 times over would be a pain.

## Conditional Formatting Formula Used To Turn A Block Of Cells Green

Jan 27, 2010

I have attached a small file with a very simple conditional formatting formula used to turn a block of cells green.

## Conditional Formatting: Box That If The Cell Populates "Completed" Or "X Required", Then Highlight As Green

May 12, 2009

I have the folowing criteria :

1) If “Completed" , then highlight as green
2) If “Pending” , then highlight as red
3) If “In Progress” , then highlight as blue
4) If “X Required” , then highlight as green

## Conditional Formatting: If A Cell Value In Column X Contains The Word "open", Format Row Background To Yellow

May 7, 2009

I need to set up some conditional formatting on my spreadsheet, however I am having a little trouble with one of my conditions. The requirement is:

- if a cell value in column X contains the word "open", format row background to yellow.

- if a cell value in column X contains the word "resolved", format row background to green.

- if a cell value in column X contains the word "moved" OR "closed", format row background to blue.

Now I have manged the first two on my own, using the conditional formatting tool and using the formula "=SEARCH("open",INDIRECT("X"&ROW()))".

However I am stuck on the last one. I tried...

=OR(SEARCH("resolved",INDIRECT("X"&ROW())), SEARCH("closed",INDIRECT("X"&ROW())))

However this doesnt work. I tried looking at adding VB script in but to be honest I am not a VB programmer and cant really spend too much time on this. fix the final conditional format so it run if the cell contains either "resolved" or "closed"?

## Conditional Formatting And Change Its Background Colour

Jun 30, 2009

I'm trying to set a conditional formatting to do the following:

If A1 is greater than 1, A2 will change its background colour to green. So the format needs to be in A2.

Basically in A1 is a page number that we have reconciled our bank statement to (labelled as "64" or "65" and so on), A2 has the end of statement amount.

Every month end we do a bank rec, the green cell is a marker to show what point we reconciled up to previous month.

## Conditional Formatting (column H Changes To Yes I Want The Background Of The Whole Row To Change To Red)

Jan 6, 2010

I have a spreadsheet where column H can be either yes or no. When column H changes to Yes I want the background of the whole row to change to Red.

e.g. Cell H4 contains the word no. I then change this so that it says "yes". I want the background of row 4 to go red. so A4, b4, c4, d4, e4, h4 all go red.

With the type of conditional formatting i normally do i can only get cell H4 to go Red by putting cell value = yes as the condition. I cant for the life of me think of a formula or way round of doing this.

## Formula Turns Cell To Text Format

May 7, 2007

I have a workbook with two worksheets. I added a formula to the first worksheet
= COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K"). It works fine when I add another COUNTIF that references another column (baseball fans may realize I'm counting total strikeouts for a batter): =COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!L3,"K") However, when I try to expand this to cover more columns, =COUNTIF(Scorecard!H3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!L3,"K")+COUNTIF(Scorecard!P3,"K")

Excel automatically changes the format of this cell to "Text" and it shows the formula as text instead of calculating it. What could be wrong here? Excel's documentation is woefully inadequate for cases like this. Is there an undocumented limit on how many times I can add COUNTIFs together?

## VBA Conditional Programming - Background Colour When Criteria Not Met

Sep 17, 2009

I have some code below which looks at values added between a set range of cells. This works OK.

My problem is when i have to change the cell as it removes the background colour already set to certain columns ie Columns I, J, P, Q, W, X, AD, AE (these are coloured a light green).

The other cells in the range have no colour and so the code below works with no problem.

## Conditional Format Based On Background Color

Jun 5, 2008

I'm attempting to write a conditional format formula that will change the background color based on multiple color options on in a row. I have cell A:c as first, last and middle name. I utilize the rest 40+ cells that provides dates that are conditionally formatted to based on dates. I've approached this trying to reference the columns dates and cannot figure it out. Heres what I would like to do:
If any cell in from D:Z has a background color of red, yellow, green, and none it will change the background color in cells A:C. Its easy to reference one cell but not multiple. I've attached a sample of what I would like to do and I manually changed to cells A:C to show how I would like to show my results.

## Conditional Format - Hiding Text With Shady Background

Apr 18, 2007

I'm attempting to use Conditional Formatting to hide text where the background is shaded. When the background is white, I can just set the text to white and it is invisible - no problem. However, when the background is set to anything else, and I set the text to the same color as the background, Excel LIES to me. It pretends that the text is invisible, but it still shows up in Print Preview and when it's actually printed. The Custom Format ;;; doesn't help me, because I need the invisibilization only under certain funky conditions.
