Col A - budget items (description) Col B - budget dollars Col C - actual dollars Row 10 - summation Cols B and C
When the budget is prepared the actual dollars in Col C are equal to the budget dollars for all items. For instance the formula =b2 is placed in cell C2. As time passes the user records actual dollars in Col C for each item by entering the actual amount directly into the cell. Actual dollars do not become known all at the same time, so that Col C will contain a mixture of formulas and entered numbers.
How can I highlight the cells in Col C that have entered numbers rather than formulas.
1. Where there is data in column B 2. Goto first row of data 2. If column J = "Closed" 3. then select Cells from column B to J in that row and colour these cells in red 4. If column J= "Open" 5. the select Celss from column B to J in that row and colour these cells in grey 4. Repeat for next row until you get to cell in column B where there is no data.
Recieve run time error 1004: Method 'RAnge of object_GLobal failed
=============================================================== Sub Colourclosed() Sheets("Risks").Select Dim LastRow As Long Dim i As Long LastRow = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row For i = 8 To LastRow If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B", "J" & i).Select Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
Note: I've managed to do it for one cell ie for Column B by replacing "If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B", "J" & i).Select with "If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B" & i).Select" This works but only colours in cell in column B, how do i do this so it colours range of cells
I want to format 3 columns in excel depending on certain value from another column. By example: I have the columns A B C completed with some text. On the column D it will be the numbers 0 or 1. If the number is 0 the background color from A,B,C columns shall be Green, if the number is 1 the color shall be red.
I have tried in conditional formatting with the formula =$D$1=0 but the color of the columns are changing only depending on the value from cell D1. I don't know what is the correct formula. For column A1 I want to check the value from D1, A2 - D2, A3 - D3,...,An - Dn.
I have a table with several criterias (Name of supplier, date, amount paid to this supplier). This table is my inputs. Each time I have an expense, I put down the name of the supplier and the amount of the expense and the date when it occurs.
I have another table with name of each supplier in rows and the date in column. Sometimes I have 2 amount for a same supplier for the same month. I would like this amounts sum in my table. I cant find a good formula to do it efficiently.
I am trying to format certain cells to change colors depending on the date and the content of the next field to show due dates.
cell label due date date completed
c5 au5 be5
c6 au6 be6
c7 au7 be7
c8 au8 be8
What I need is for the contents of au5 to be green up until 10 days before the due date, yellow up until 5 days, and red with less than 5 days until the due date. If the date completed is entered into be5, then the contents of au5 should be black.
Is this possible, and if it is, how do I set this up? I tried to use
And choose green formatting (something I found on yahoo answers), but when I enter the date the text is still the original black font.
I need change the color of the cell depending on the following conditions. (By the way the column will have names list)
1. single punctuations are allowed anywhere in name apart from first position.-->color should not change 2. If any name got consecutive punctuations --> color should change to RED. 3. Any punctuations apart from Dot(.), hyphen(-), apostrophe('), Space( ) are not allowed-->color should change to RED.
When I input in cell D3 with 1 and E3 with 7 or below, the cell of E3 will be red color. when I input in cell D3 with 1 and E3 with 8 and above, the cell of E3 will be green. When I input in cell D3 with 2 and E3 with 15 and below, the cell of E3 will be red color. when I input in cell D3 with 2 and E3 with 16 and above the cell of E3 will be green.
What I am looking to do is format a row so that it is highlighted if one cell in that row meets one of two criteria or if another cell in that row meets one of two criteria: I was hoping to use the excel conditional formating tool but I'm stumped as I need 4 criteria and it can only do 3 criteria.
The cells in question require a greater than or less than criteria. If could use something like: Formular is =$AJ16 <= -0.11 or =$AJ16 >= 0.11 and Formular is =$AK16 <= -0.11 or =$AK16 >= 0.11 I would be very happy but it won't let me do this - is there a way it can be done?
I have conditionally formatted a column of staff names where duplicates are highlighted - this is fine but there are some duplicates that I do not want to include - these all have the same criteria in that they include the suffix (v)
I have a spreadsheet that requires me to manually hunt down records that match based on several different criteria. this is very time consuming and inefficient. i would like to find a way to highlight certain records that match based on several different fields. i have posted an example spreadsheet that also has a more detailed description of what i am trying to do; which is located in the second sheet.
I have a Workbook that I use to log invoices and credit notes and it is password protected so that the cells that contain formulas are locked and therefore not selectable.
What I wanted to know is. Is it possible to lock other cells depending on what values are in certain cells?
Let me explain. I have Columns G & H which contain the heading 'Credit Note Number' & 'Credit Note Amount'. Now in columns I & J I have the heading 'Invoice Number' & 'Invoice Amount' respectively.
What I have done is to make a condional formatting so that If I put a value in cells in column G it will change the colour of the adjacent cells in columns I & J, likewise If I fill in cells in column I the conditional formatting will change the colour of adjacent cells in coulumn G & H. This helps me to see whether a row contains a credit note or an invoice.
What I would ideally like is for a Macro that would automatically locks cells G & H in a particular row that I am currently working on if I enter data into the cell in column I. Likewise if I am entering data in column G in the row I am currently working on for a credit note, then lock columns I & J in the row I am currently in.
Any Ideas how this can be done? Also can locking and unlocking of cells be done in VBA while the sheet is protected or would the macro need to temporarily unprotect sheet, lock the cells then protect sheet again?
PS: I have uploaded a Jpeg of what my conditional formatting does to try and illustrate what it is I need.
I need to apply conditional formatting to cells in a column that contain formulas, or more accurately cells that do not. I have a spreadsheet with default values in a column based on a lookup function. I need to know if the user overwrites the default and cannot use UDF's or VBA. I don't think it's possible so my alternative is to include a hidden column that does the same lookup and do the conditional format off of a comparison.
i am trying to write a formula that calculates the difference between two cells, i.e. the buy price and sell price of a stock, to result in the profit/loss of the trade. However, the problem is, When "going long" i need to calculate b-a = c C:C=B:B-A:A
but when i go "short" i need the calculation to be a-b = c C:C=A:A-B:B
i am thinking that if i have a column, say d, indicating either "long" or "short", as a conditional argument, then this can determine which formula to apply to the calculation... e.g. please try to make sense of this...
if "d=long" then C:C=B:B-A:A, but if "d=short" then C:C=A:A-B:B
is this sort of calculation possible? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. i have just finished reading a formula text book, but if the argument im creating isn't exactly shown word for word i am having trouble adapting the formula as needed.
I have applied conditional formatting to a cell using formulas and i want to copy that formatting to a new cell using similar formula but pointing to different cells. Is it possible to do so? I have tried to copy and paste special>formats, but that just copies the conditional formatting with the same formulas.
I want to copy to $D$5/$D$295>$R$5,TRUE,FALSE) without having to paste the new formula in each time.
I need to run a loop through a column of values (attachment col B) and when it finds a "J" it will apply conditional formatting to a row of 4 cells directly adjacent. The attachment is a theoretical before & after.
I am trying to conditionally format the top middle and bottom thirds of a range of data. Problem is, that the range needs to be flexible as sometimes there may be a maximum of 36 cells with data, but sometimes there may be less (so there are blank cells in the range that need not be counted). The methods I have tried always include the blank cells, and so it is not equally formatting the thirds (as it includes the blanks cells as part of the bottom data)....
Here are the 2 methods Ive tried so far using excel 2003) Top 34%: =IF(INT(COUNT($D$3:$D$38)*34%)>0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D $38)*34%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D $38)*67%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D $38)*100%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))
I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.
I want to conditional format cells with an if statement (something to that nature). I attached an excel file to aid in my question. Basically I want it to be color coded to alert users Red if no action is required because info is left out Yellow if info is available so take action Green if all is complete and nothing needs to be done.
If G2 does NOT have data then cell H2 has red fill If G2 does have data then cell H2 has yellow fill And finally if I2 is filled out cells A2:I2 are green filled
I conditionally formated a spreadsheet to delete all repeats. Now I have my rows numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 9 15, 20, 26, 36 (no specific order because the number of repeats were random). I inserted a new column (A) and want a running set of numbers (1,2,3,4) starting at A4. The only problem is that when I put a 1 in the A4 box and try to drag down in the bottom right corner of the cell with CTL+Click, it copies the number 1 all of the way down. What do I do?
