I've worked out the following to change the tab color of a "sub" sheet when data on a master sheet is changed. Could anyone recommend the best way to apply this to multiple sheets (20+) without writing an "if" statement for each "sub" sheet?

Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
If Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("E7").Value <> 0 Then
Worksheets("Sheet2").Tab.ColorIndex = 4
Else: Worksheets("Sheet2").Tab.ColorIndex = xlColorIndexNone
End If
End Sub

The master sheet is a bill summary where totals are added, if one of the line items is a subcontracted item the total on that particular subs sheet changes from "$0" and i would like the tab color to change on any sub sheet that is affected by the current quantities billed.

Is there any way to have more colors in conditional formatting since it only allow maximum 3 colors. Anyway for your info I have an attendance sheet which I want the data to change colors every time the data is enter as below :-

MC / EL / NS = RED Y = BLUE AL = GREEN OD / RD = YELLOW PH = BLACK

We use a several Excel files to keep track of who has booked retail space with us. We have a main sheet that has every space within every shopping Mall we deal with. We then have different files for each Mall (this is so we can email the file to the shopping mall to show who is booked in each space but they don't see all the other shopping malls details). We have the other files set-up to read information from the main sheet so when we update a cell with the booked companies name it updates a cell on the relevant file.

This part all works fine, but we also change the booked companies colour depending on if they have they have paid, not paid or awaiting invoice. Currently we change this by hand on the main file then on the other files. I am hoping someone maybe able to explain a way of adding to the formula we already use to update the relevant cells automatically to enable the font (or cell if its easier) colour change to be carried across to the other files.

In conditional format I've this formula =countif($Q$2:$V$2,B2)>0 which will return any matching numbers in yellow. My question is can I insert that once that row reaches 10 matching numbers the row turns green.

I want to conditionally format the fill colour of pie or donut segments based on either the value of the segment (e.g. red for negative, green for positive), or based on the value of related cells (e.g. Equal sized segments coloured red for related %age value >40, amber for 40 to 60, green >60).

I’m sure conditional formatting is the way forward with this but can’t quite get the formula right. I need 2 columns: Column A will have dates that an event happened on. Column B will be blank until we have received back in a letter that went out on the date in column A. At which point the date the letter was received back in will be entered into column B

What I need is for the Colour of Column B to change from green (before and on the date of Column A) to Amber (for the next 3 days) and then red (from Day 5 onwards. This would be until a date was entered in column B (the date the letter is received back in) at which point it would just go back to white. This would keep a check on how long the letter was out for and whether we need to chase it up or not and with an increasing urgency.

If a cells value is between to numbers then I need to change the color of that specific cell to green otherwise cell is to turn red. Also all cells without a value defaults to yellow.

I have to create a chart XY Scatter plot in excel. I have to differentiate the data points color based on the another column "category". Now I can change the data points color manually. Since the number of points is huge, is it possible to color the data points based on a column?

How to sort out a way to count cells whose fill colors have been set via conditional formatting.

I'm sure that I was once able to use Chip Pearson's CountOfCF function back in the days of Excel 2003, as it worked around the 3 condition limit and used .ColorIndex which assumed that you'd only ever be formatting using the .ColorIndex values of 1 to 56, but I can't seem to be able to get it to work in 2010.

I'm a average excel user, i know my way around it and kow common and basic formulee, VB isnt a strong point, but i am willing to attemp anything for this, let me explain

Lets say in colum A I have a list of items, in colum B i have a check box, currently the check box is red, if i tpye a x it turns green due to conditional formating. That works fine...onto the problem...

Lets say in colum A i have my items but they are repeated...eg A1, A145, A166, A122 are all the same item, what i want is regardless of where i place the x each check box under coloum B either gets a X and turns green, or just turns green, i dont mind...

I dont think conditional formatting can cut this, though i may be wrong. Ive tried to use the IF function under condtional formatting but ran into problems...

My pallet lost color-coding - if I hover over each little scare it displays the names for the colors and if I click on them they color the cells with the right colors, but the palette itself lost the visual display of colors except for 8 colors: black, blue, red, magenta, yellow, cyan, and white.

I use color-coding of cells a lot and I find it difficult to work without visual clues. At least the hover-support allows me to get the work done, but with difficulty.

I have an excel problem with formula. I’m not sure of the formula I think its sumif but don’t know how to express the criteria . I am trying to create a spreadsheet that will total the data from Colum B, C & D. I have 3 columns with the following data.

Column B Heading Length Column C Heading Width Column D Heading Depth

Column E Heading LM (lineal meters) will have the data only from column B. Column F Heading M2 will equal the data of column B & C (remembering the math is M2 = column B x Column C. Column G Heading M3 will equal the data of Column B, C & D (remembering the math is M3 = column B x Column C x Column D. That’s the easy part but in columns H to J, I have other headings and column K is my Rate.

Column L is my subtotal and this is where my problem lies, because the formula is =SUM(E1:J1)*K1 it has the potential to double up on figures when I use the dropdown formula for Columns E,F, and G all data is carried down with them. I want Column E to show only the value, if column B has a number and Columns C & D are empty. I want Column F to show only the value, if columns B & C have a number and Column D is empty. I want Column G to show on the value, if all columns have a number. If all these conditions are met, then only a value will be displayed in either column E, F, G Remembering that the values returned must be multiplied by the value of each number in the columns.

To protect formulas and formatting, I have code, which copies a row, with formatting and formulas, from a hidden sheet, unprotect the main sheet, inserts the copied row and reprotect the main sheet. This works great, except with conditional formatting.

My current conditional formatting works on the range: $A$3:$B$100. The copied row is inserted on Row 4. When done, this splits the conditional formatting to: $A$3:$B$3 and $A$5:$B$101, whether or not the copied row contains the same conditional formatting. This makes sense, but is it possible to maintain the original, all-encompassing range? Otherwise I'll end up getting thousands of conditional formatting for each insert.

I need to put a macro in the toolbar which copies data from another worksheet. The trick is I have several worksheets and want the one macro to pull data from different columns based on which worksheet is active. So I need to test the name of the active worksheet in my logic.

Column 1 reports the name of three people, John , George and Jim, column 2 the year for which they are paid (e.g. 2002, 2003 etc) and column 3 the amount of money they received each year (e.g. John received 18$ in 2005, $15 in 2004 and 11$ in 2003). I need a function to give me the average salary earned by each of these people in the period 2003-2004 e.g. John earned $15 in 2004 and $11 in 2003, so the average value is 13. Is there a function to do it automatically (so taking the conditional average---average for john given that year is 2004 or 2005)?

I want this average to be in column 5 (column 4 will contain the names john, george and jim)

I have a series of tabs with data, 25 columns by 600 rows, all with numbers. A cell should be red and lined out if its' corresponding cell on the very last tab is less than 50. I've tried to name range the area on the last tab (RawBuyers) and use it in a Formula Is CF on the first worksheet, but I get errors.

I'm seeking help with a CF formula that I can apply to each tabs data range.

I've seen threads similar to my issue, so I apologize if this is redundant (but nothing I've found is doing the trick.)

Still struggling with the calculator. Is there anyway to get a macro to insert a set number of worksheets. The set number would be the sum of two fields on Sheet 1. Example attached. I have searched the forum and can now use a macro to insert a worksheet but have no idea how to tailor it.

I am trying to use a conditional sum formula where the data resides in and external workbook. This is fine until I close the external workbook and the formula no longer shows the external reference. Is there a way of getting excel to use conditional sums in this way (or what is the best way of achieving this?)

I am writing a macro which first needs to look and see if a certain worksheet exists. If it doesn't then I want it to create it but if it does I first want it to delete the sheet then create a blank one with the same name. At trhe moment I have this but it is scrappy and doesn't work very well:

On Error Goto AddSheet If Sheets("MONEYSHEET").Activate Then Goto Data

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 have a range on worksheet "CONTROL" from S129:S228. There are 100 rows there. I have another range on the active sheet from B17:N116, also 100 rows. If S129 has a value of 1, then I need row 17 on the active sheet to be cleared (columns B-N). And so on all the way to the bottom of the ranges. If it has no value in the cell, then no clearing takes place. So it needs to test the whole range at once. I really have no clue what the variants and ranges should be, and have NO CLUE how to define a variable range so that I can use the value that R is on in the testing cycle to tell the active sheet which row to delete.

I need to create conditional formatting on a worksheet where I need to change the cell colour based on 6 cases.

The VBA that I have found does not work with referenced cells to another worksheet in the workbook which I need as all the data is referenced with calculations.

I also need to specify the cells that the VBA will apply to as I need to apply 6 or 7 different different sets of conditional formatting on the same worksheet to different groups of cells.

I am trying to do a conditional format of 0 to 2 is red, 3 to 4 is yellow and 5 is green. However I also need to have a cell that is blank to remain white and this is the part I am having problems with.

I found the following code since I cannot use the standard conditional formating in excel since it needs 4 conditions.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("H3:H12")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case 0 To 2 icolor = 3 Case 3 To 4 icolor = 6 Case 5

I have a worksheet with a lot of different conditions applied to a lot of cells. I'd like to do some housekeeping, but to do that, I would like a clear and complete list of all cells that have conditional formats attached to them, and what the formula/criteria is for applying said format. I don't even care what the formatting is, but that would be nice too.

So, when I go to my "Conditional Formatting" screen, I get something like:

Now, this doesn't show me much of anything about what the formula actually is. I need to select it and look around. I'd rather just get a full listing of what the rule says...

And where I might have the same rule applied to different ranges of cells And so on.

I have a worksheet with monthly sales figures by associate and by store. The store has a monthly goal as do the associates. If the store hits it's goal then the overall sales total is multiplied by 1% and then divided by the percentage of each associates involvement to reach that goal. (ie...150,000*1%=1,500, John sold 35,000=23%, so John gets $345 extra commission). If Johns goal was $25,000 and sold $35,000 he gets 1% or $350 commission. In turn, if he meets 1 or both sets of criteria those will be added together. If he doesn't meet either one then the result is Zero.

I have the store goal and Johns goal in separate cells to reference against. The actual sales cell is formula based.

This is basically what i'm trying to do: If criteria 1 is met then % of 1% of store goal, if criteria 2 is met then 1% of individual goal, if both are met result1+result2. if neither is met then zero. I think?

I have a Workbook (Test 1) with several columns A-S. I'd like to be able to continue to add data into Test 1, and have some of the data pulled into a new Workbook (Test 2). Basically pulling data from Test 1, cols. D, L, J, E, I, C, K, Q and S - into the new workbook Test 2.

Some of the columns in Test 1 have conditional formatting and data validations, but I need the data in these columns to be replicated into Test 2 - without having to copy/paste between the 2 workbooks.

I figured how to do this in Excel 2010, but my office is still using 2007 and I can't seem to get it to work....
