I have the following Case statement that changes all the cells to the correct color, but does not change the Font color as specified in the Case. All the text is White (fcolor = 2) instead of just the 3 types of cells specified.
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.
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...
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 have backwards co-workers that can't figure out how/why to use conditional formatting and have deigned it "not acceptable".
They've requested I fill in a HUGE spreadsheet and change the font color to red if it meets a criteria.
Simple enough to do with a conditional format that compares my data.
HOWEVER, now I need the individual cells to stay red and remove the conditional format (because conditional formatting "confuses" them). Removing the condition causes the color to go back to black. I've tried all sorts of paste specials (formula/format) to no avail...
I'm new to VBA. I'm trying to write a macro that toggles between three or more font colors for the cells that are selected. I started with the "record macro" feature and then tinkered with the code because I obviously don't have a very good understanding of this process yet. How would I go about writing a code like this?
I would like to change the number format of a cell in function of the value of another cell. For example, if A1=1, then I would like the cell A2 to be displayed as a percentage. If A1=2, then would like the cell A2 to be displayed as a number.
Is it possible to format a row of cells (B7:KX7) depending on the value in column (G7:G1000) changing?
For example column G might have the following value entered into them.
A A A B B B C C C
So all the rows containing the letter A would be formatted one colour, then it would notice it changed to B and format all the rows with the letter B in, then C etc... The letters would always appear in blocks of 10 or more (representing students in a group) so it wouldn't go A,B,A,B,C,D,E
I am not bothered about the letter being tied to a certain colour, it just needs to change when the letter changes. I'd have no more than 10 different variables in this column, meaning no more than 10 different colours to format. Formatting would be black text with different coloured backgrounds.
When I hit the macro code you see below I get both columns D and E, starting from row 18, to get 'filled down' to the specified spot. Every second row has a conditional format (when a value is entered in column A) to change the row to the color grey, and every row between it has a conditional format (when any value is entered in column A as well) to have the row changed to the color red. The issue here is that the Macro code messes up the conditional formatting and uses the conditional formatting of those two cells, which are being dragged down, for those entire filled-down columns! This is what I am starting off with test1.xlsm and this is what I end up with using the macro code below (or doing it manually)
Is there a way for the Macro code to bypass this issue?
Trying to format cells b9 through b 24 and cells c9 through c24 to change from white to a light grey color by clicking the mouse button once. so one click white, another click grey. The color grey I need is white, background 1, darker 25% in the autofill field in excel. I have search other forums they all lead to changing the code, I did this already. just copy pasted a code I found but all cells were selected to change a bright green.
I have 2 cells (B2 and C2) with date format, showing dates from a calendar. FYI, These cells are NOT in my Calendar.
Now, I need to write a formula for my calendar cells to check these two cells (B2 and C2) and change the color of the cells inside my calendar according to the date sindicated inthese two cells (B2 and C2).
I did this with numbers using conditional formating and it works perfect but doing this with dates is giving me a hard time. Is there a way to do this? below is a link to my excel file.
I'm trying to have change if the date on it is passed "now()". I am already using the 3 conditional formatting fields and need this one and another one. Here are 2 problems I seem to be having.
First - the code below only works if I change the date on the cell. I want code to either work with Worksheet Active or any other way so the user does not have to redo the date’s everyday. Second - a record might have conditional formatting already. Is it possible for the target cell in this code can show this color while the rest of the row shows the color of the conditional formatting?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer If Not Intersect(Target, Range("G1:G2000")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case Is <= Now() icolor = 39
i'd like to use a macro to loop through a range of cells and change the interior color index based on the cell values (ex. if cell value < 10, set interior to blue, if cell value > 400, set to green) i'm trying a for each loop with an if statement but i keep getting syntax errors, i know this is probably a simple problem but i'm not experienced in vb,
I am a new member, with not a lot of VBA experience. Sorry for the vague title .. couldn't come up with something ^^". The idea is, I made an list with several anime titles I am watching (in column A) In column G it shows the status; "Watching", "Completed", "Planning to Watch", "On-Hold" or "Dropped". I managed to let the colors of those words change with this
I have a large workbook, with multiple sheets. I would like to be able to select a name from a drop down menu, and have the cell color change for all entries of that name in my other sheets. I can do it manually, but it would be much cleaner and easier to have Excel do it for me. I have looked at other answers here on this forum and know that if it can be done,
How do I go about formatting selected cells for different colors for each different number in the selected cells? If I have numbers scattered about I want the cell to show a different color depending on the number that is inserted. EG: 115=red, 365=blue.
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
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.
I'm taking some university classes and one of them is called Applications Programming and we have been using excel VBA. I have a project that I'm working on, and it's very basic. Basically we need to create a userform that has 3 option buttons, 4 check boxes, a couple labels and a couple text boxes. It's suppose to be a ice cream selection terminal. Option boxes for basic flavors of ice cream, check boxes for toppings, one text box for user input of number of scoops of ice cream and the last text box to output a reciept/overview of purchase.
So here's the question... I was wondering if there's a way to change the font of a single string variable, or change the font of a word within a string. My output to the saleBox(My receipt overview) is this:
saleBox.Text = ("Thanks you for your Purchase") & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _ "You ordered " & numOfScoop & " scoops of " & flavorChoice & "ice cream" & vbCrLf & _ "Topped with: " & toppings & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & total
(not sure how the code is gonna look in the message but I'm sure you get the idea)
i want to be able to change the font for the flavorChoice or toppings variables. They are both strings.
Anyways, I know I can get away with basically what I have there and get full marks, but I like going above what the basics are. If it's kinda complicated.
I'm gonna attach a screenshot, more info is better than not enough right... nevermind its askin for a url!
*** I just now got the idea of putting another textbox over the area that would output the text I want to change and hide the border or something and then change the font of that text box through the properties ***
I have a created a filter in my workbook. Text for the entire spreadsheet is set to Arial | 12 pt. Font. However, when I select any one drop down list the text therein is shown in a font size that is too small. How can I change the font size to make it more readable?
im using combobox from the forms toolbar. and i have tryed and searched lots of forms and sites but no results, so what im trying to do is change the font size to 12 in my combobox using VBA.
-im using xl2000
-i dont wanto switch to the combox in the active x becouse i have more than 70 comboboxs in this spread sheet. and it will also be very complicated to change the comboboxes due to all the link cell's and there values.
