Conditional Format Shading Stop Updating Until Save...?

Aug 17, 2009

I have a sheet that highlight cells to show that they need to still be filled out if another cell in the same row has a number in it. What happens is that when you put the number in the row the cells won't become shaded or partially shade until the workbook is saved.. Maybe I can put some code in that tells the work book to update whenever a cell is changed?

Conditional Format Multiple Shading

May 21, 2008

In a workbook I have

Sheet 1 and Sheet 1a
1a is used to provide a start and finish date for a task - there are many of them
The following is located in a cell in sheet 1 which looks at 1a for the dates etc

HTML =IF(AND($A$427+B$430-1>='1a'!E10,$A$427+B$430-1<='1a'!I10,B$429<>"S"),"X","")

The end result is an X located in the respective feilds.
This works fine but.
I have set up the Calendar area in 1 so that when the X is shown it is Red.
The sheet also shows a Blank in both the SS [Sat and Sun]

What I would like to do is to have instead of the blank in the SS [Sat & Sun] a shaded grey which would clearly indicate that this was weekend.

What I am after is the weekdays with the X as now and the weekend only in a grey shade as it is at the moment without the X

Conditional Format: Alternate Row Shading Based On First To Letters In The A Column

Oct 27, 2008

I have a price list from a friend. The price list has to have every other row shaded. This part is no problem with the conditional format command.

The real trick, at least to me, is the background shade of the row is based on the first two letters in the left most column.

For instance:

Column A


CP rows would alternate with one color while FL rows would alternate with a different color and FI rows would alternate with another different color. All other rows would have no shading.

MacOffice Excel 08 is used so no VB code can be used.

Save Conditional Format Colour But Delete Condition Format

Dec 19, 2006

I have a Sheet ( Named "Summary" for Example ) of about 4,000 Rows that has a LOT of Conditional Formatting.

I Added Another 100 Rows this Morning and when I Tried Saving it a Message Saying that Not All the Formatting for the New Data that had Been Added had Been Saved. Is there a Macro or Something I can Run that will Make the Conditionally Formatted Cells Stay the Colour that they are but Delete the Conditional Formatting Part of it Achieved Using "Format" & "Conditional Format" from the Menu Please.

Ideally I would like to be Able to Enter the Number of Rows ( From Row ? to Row ? ) that I want this to Apply to.

Conditional Formatting Similar To Shading Alternating Rows

Aug 18, 2006

I'm trying to use the following formula in conditional formatting in cell A2 when the range A2:AW64 is selected (this conditional
formatting will be copied to all cells in the selected range):

Formula is: =isodd($A2)

The error I keep getting is this:

"You may not use references to other worksheets or other workbooks for Conditional Formatting criteria."

I'm trying to use this conditional formatting because column A is our "Order" column. "Order" can be from 1 to 13 and this column
is sorted ascending. There can be multiple rows in each Order number. So I want to shade all 1's, 3's, 5's, etc... so that each
Order group has alternating shading.

I also want to use conditional formatting, not VBA, to get this to work. In the future, rows might be added to an Order number or two and I want the shading to automatically adjust.

Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting - Shading By Group When Filtered?

Sep 19, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 on XP. I would like to apply conditional formatting to shade every group in alternating color. For example, I have a list of US states. I have a formula already to produce this:

Current Conditional Formatting Formula: =MOD(SUM(1/COUNTIF($a$2:$a2,$a$2:$a2)),2)=1

STATES (unfiltered)

When I apply a filter, the rows remain shaded as they were originally:


I want the conditional format to change when I have filtered out items (DESIRED RESULT):


I would assume SUBTOTAL(3,...) would need to be incorported into the conditional formatting formula above, but I do not know how.

Stop Now Function Auto Updating When New Row Added

Oct 29, 2008

I have fought with this for 2 days and I am trying to have a worksheet cell update the date and time if the cell it is referencing (B3 see below)

Here is the formula I am using however it updates every time a new row is added to the worksheet. So the Date/Time stamp on each row is always updated to NOW() everytime.

=IF(ISNA(B3),"0/0/00 00:00",NOW())

I would like to have a Date/Time stamp stay as is once that row has been added. Is there anyway to stop the field from updating once the date and time have been set?

How Can I Stop The Chart Data Range From Updating When I Add & Delete A Row

Oct 11, 2009

I have a worksheet with 300 rows and I have a separate worksheet that contains graphs based on the data in the 300 rows.

The data is continually updated but stays at 300 rows. I add a new row at 301 and then I delete row 1.

I set the graphs up with a Chart Data Range of =GData!$B$1:$AB$300

As I add and delete rows the Chart Data Range reduces so after adding and deleting 3 rows the Chart Data Range is now =GData!$B$1:$AB$297

How can I get the Chart Data Range to stay at =GData!$B$1:$AB$300?

Stop Save Prompts

Sep 19, 2009

I have a an Excel workbook (wb1) with 4 worksheets.
I also have a personal.xls that contains 4 worksheets.
wb1 has volatile functions.

I have calenders, dropdown lists, read from a file that is closed, etc..
When I open wb1, look at it (I do not make any changes by hand) then close it, it gives me the " Do you want to save?" prompt.

I have tried numerous codes to stop it and I can not get it.
I need it to give me the prompt if I have made a change and not give me the prompt if it is just a change from the volatile functions.

I cannot just tell it to save in the background because my boss does not want the date changed if it is just looked at.

The user opens numerous files when searching for a file that is almost what he needs, then he saves it with a new name and goes from there. Or he just opens numerous files to get ideas on how to make the new file.

The user cannot have to do anything to make it work.
I know that the code will need to be copied to any existing workbooks. I have the code to do that.
That would be done as the files are created to new ones. Also when he is starting from scratch the code would be in the template he uses. Eventually all of the files would be converted

Private Sub workbook_Open( )
Me.Saved = True
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
ThisWorkbook.Saved = True
End Sub

Save Number As Text In Txt Format Wo Changing The Format

Mar 1, 2007

In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.

First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.

Stop Auto Format To Scientific Notation

Dec 29, 2008

I run a macro that imports a table from web page:


I import only the table with no formatting.

Excel tries to be helpful, and formats some of the cells in scientific notation.

I have tried to format the column to the "Text" format prior to the import with

Columns(2).NumberFormat = "@"

This does not work. If you import the table you can see that rows 1405, 1406, 1407, 1408 all have the same scientific notation value. Their true values should be 0E0, 0E4, 0E8, 0E9 respectively.

There are quite a few other instances in the column when a text value has "E" for the second character that Excel will format on its own.

Stop Scientific Format For Large Numbers

Nov 21, 2006

Im importing figures into column G of my worksheet, and I need a code so it automatically adds a "0" to the start of each row in column G plus format it.

For example, im pasting in 970702090341 but its showing as 9.70702E+11.

Once I format the cell to 'number' and 0 decimal places it looks fine, but want to save the hassle of doing it each time. Plus I need a zero at the start.

Is there a code possible for this?

Stop European Date Format Changing

Jan 21, 2008

I have a userform which is used to update a spreadsheet.

There are 7 textboxes which add dates to the spreadsheet. These dates are then used in formulas.

Every time a record is saved the date format changes.

Ths means that if the date is entered dd/mm/yyyy it writes mm/dd/yyyy and this is fine. When this record is next retrieved it will show mm/dd/yyyy and any new date will be dd/mm/yyyy.

Wen saved to the spreadsheet both formats change meaning the dates in the spreadsheet appear in diffrent formats messing up all formulas.

How can I stop the date format changing each time the record is saved?

How Do You Stop Changing The Date Format During Find And Replace?

Aug 26, 2009

When I remove "Release date:" from "Release date:24 December 2008," excel will automatically change the text to "24-Dec-08." Yes, I did try to format the column to "text" before using find and replace.

This wouldn't be a problem, except that half the dates are in Dutch, so only half the dates are changed, which means that I can't make all date formats in a column uniform.

Conditional Format Based On A Conditional Format

Feb 9, 2010

I have five fields that have a conditional format applied to them: (see attached).
Columns J, K, L, N and O. These conditionals highlight if a minimum number is entered. Ex. Minimum pushups for a 30 y/o male is 27, if a 26 is entered it highlights red. The total score (where I need this to perform) is calculated in column Q. It will format red if the total score is below 75 but what I can't figure out is how to make it format if any of the previous minimums have not been met.

Ex. In cell L4, his crunches were 25 (a automatic failure -- red formatting). Now the total score is above 75 so it calculates as passing (green), but I need it to highlight red regardless because of the minimum not met in cell L4.

Execl 2007 :: Conditional Formatting - How To Turn Off Stop If True Option

Jun 2, 2009

How can you use VBA code to turn off the annoying "Stop if True" default setting when doing conditional formatting in excel 2007? Right now when you have multiple conditional formatting conditions in a cell, it stops checking and formatting other conditions if one of those conditions is satisfied. I don't why they set this as the default...

I have conditional formatting rules set up using excel 2003. The file is opened in 2007 with the above-mentioned default setting that screws up all my conditional rules.

Excel 2007 :: How To Stop Conditional Formatting From Copying To Adjacent Cell

Jun 6, 2012

Excel 2007.

I have conditional formatting set up so that the cell becomes highlighted if it contains a specific text.

Example of wanted conditional formatting:

Conditional formatting rules manager


Applies to

Stop if true

[Code] ......

For some reason this formatting is inherited by another adjacent cell as we continue to input information.

For example:

Column M is formatted so if 'AP' is placed in any cell in that column the cell fills pink. As more information is inputted into the sheet, the conditional formatting copies to Column N. It does not happen with every entry and I have not been able to isolate the specific steps to recreate the copying. Multiple people use the same sheet and fill it out and needed.

After working with the sheet changes are made to the "applies to" column without people meaning to.

For example:

Conditional formatting rules manager


Applies to

[Code] .......

I would like to make this formatting so that is only applies to the Column M and not "travel" to other cells of the sheet.
