I have 3 rows with numbers across several columns, each cell holding one number only. For example:

R1: 1101 - 1102 - 1103 - 1104 - etc.

R2: 2101 - 2102 - 2103 - 2104 - etc.

R3: 3101 - 3102 - 3103 - 3104 - etc.

A little further down I am having a list where the end user will write down the exact same number. Once the same number has been written into the list, I would like the number shown in the top rows (row 1 to 3) to be highlighted in green, basically telling the user that the number has been entered into the list below and is ok now.

How can I manage this via conditional formatting?

Refer to attached sheet. I have 2 sets of data to compare.

B4:H30 and K4:Q30

Compare B4 with K4,C4 with L4 and so on.

If any data is not equal then highlight.

I am trying to create conditional formatting to ascertain whether values in one table (Table 1) are different from another identically formatted table above it (Table 2) (so each cell in Table 1 has a corresponding cell in Table 2).

If the value in a cell in Table 1 is different from its corresponding cell in Table 2, the cell should highlight in red.

Every cell's corresponding cell is the same distance away.

I tried to put in a conditional formatting for C5 (C5 being the first cell in Table 2), which works, but this breaks and turns to #REF every time i save and re-open the document.

Is there a way I can have excel automatically highlight all cells within A1:A3, B1:B3, C1:C3 if and only if they are greater than the percentage in E5? If so how would I go about doing this?

I need to hightlight from A1:A18

In the above cells I have values from 1 to 4

So I need to fill the cell with 4 different colours.

If cell equals 1 = Green

If cell equals 2 = Yellow

If cell equals 3 = Red

If cell equals 4 = Blue

What I do is highlight cell from A1:A18, clik on 'Format', 'Conditional Formatting', I've tried using 'Cells Value is' and 'Formula is'.

i am trying to highlight the cells red in the b column if a3=d3 (if names match) and if b3<e3 (only if name is "a" should e3 be used to compare with b3). hope this makes sense. i've attached a sample worksheet.

i've tried =if(b3<e3, (vlookup(a3,d3:e33,1,false),true)...but does not work correctly. i need the average weight to remain constant according to the name when comparing, but if i drag the formula down to other cells, the average weight does not correspond to the name.

I am using conditional formatting to highlight all cells where the value <> 0.00. It's working for 98.9% of the records, but for some reason, about 5 of the records with 0.00 are being highlighted for some reason. I've checked the field formats and they're the same as the other numbers.

View 9 Replies View RelatedI have a spreadsheet showing names, quality percentages and times taken to answer a call in 3 columns. I would like to highlight the cells that fall within the top 20% of those shown (e.g. if there are 100 quality percentages I want to highlight the top 20 not those over 80%) also the same with call length.

I have a column of numbers and times (mins and secs) and what would like to do is set a conditional format so that the cell turns a colour when the number of any cell is within the highest 20% and the other column turns a different colour when the time is within the lowest 20%.

Is it possible to use conditional formatting to highlight cells that use formulas, as opposed to having constants?

I have a sheet that uses formulas to provide a default value, but you can type in a number if you want to replace the default. I want to be able to easily identify which ones use the default formula.

If I use functions like FIND, they look at the result of a formula, and not the formula itself.

I know I can write a UDF that will figure it out but I was wondering if there is some built-in way.

I have a sheet where i need to highlight cells C3:C140 based on approaching dates. The cells C3:C140 contain dates generated from another file and would be random approaching dates.

The conditions are

1) Approaching Weekends (Sat and Sun) = always turn red

2) 3 days after today = orange

3) 2 days after today = dark orange

4) Other days = light orange

I have a spreadsheet where I have a column of dates and I want conditional formatting to highlight the cell red if the date is less than or equal to today but if the cell is blank to do nothing.

At the moment I have the following formatting applied using the "format only cells that contain" option I have cell value less than or equal to =TODAY() except that obviously highlights every cell red that doesn't contain a date. Is there another conditional format I can apply in addition to this that will not highlight the blank cells ?

How do I do "conditional formatting" to high light the numbers which bigger than average + 2 * stdev in a data group?

View 4 Replies View RelatedI'm having issues with Excel's 2010 conditional formatting. Seems easy to use, but I'm trying to highlight values based on 2 columns of numerical data. Example:

Column F:

6

6

14

Column L:

3

NA

17

I would like Column L to highlight values that are greater than Column F in green. If they are less than Column L then highlight them in red.

Seems I was able to do this with Excel 2003, but I don't understand the 2010 version.

I tried using the following in Cond Formatting:

When the Cell in F10 does not equal w/a, I want the text to be BOLD. I tried this and it didn't work...

=$F10w/a

also tried

=$F10"w/a"

Neither worked.

This seems way too simple to do yet I can't get it right. It will highlight some that are different and not highlight others that are different. I need to compare column A to O and highlight differences, B to P and highlight difference, and so on.

You take a childs actual age in months and years (ie 9.8 for 9years and 8months). They then, in theory, should be at that age level for reading and spelling.

I have the age in B4, the reading in C4 and the spelling in D4. If i use CF to say i want C4 to be red if it's less than B4, Amber if it's the same and green if it's over, as soon as i okay it, C4 goes amber, because it's equal to B4, which is blank. I can get the colours to work, i just can't figure out what to put to turn the amber off when cell B4 is empty.

I've tried as many combinations as my little amount of excel knowledge can cope with.

I would like to highlight cells is two conditions are met:Cell = 0Offset(0,-1)>0I tried the conditional format wizard and entered a formula: =IF(AND($J2=0,$I2>0)) But I keep receiving formual errors, which I understand, because it appears to be incomplete formula. But I am not sure what else I need to add to the formula in the conditional format wizard

View 5 Replies View RelatedI have a list of percent item. I want to use conditional formatting to highlight items greater than 50%. I do as following:

- Hightlight items, C2:C5, then choose Format ->Conditional Formatting

- I choose Formula is, and the format in the condition box is =">50%"

- Finally, I choose Format to choose the color.

I think I do the right steps but Excel doesn't show anything.

In a range, say A1:D5, I need to format cells as follows:

1) If cell contains only "H" or "HV": highlight red

2) If cell contains only a number: highlight blue

3) If cell contains a number with the letter "F" ("1 F" or "5.5 F"): highlight pink

I am working on a spreadsheet in Excel 2007 and i am trying to use a formula in the conditional formatting that will highlight a cell if the date is prior to today's date and the next column over is no. the formula i am using right now is =IF(F2>TODAY(),IF(G2="NO",TRUE,)). the problem i am having is that it is highlighting all cells that have a date and the next column over is no.

i can't figure out how to get it to do an if this, then that function correctly. one other thing that could potentially be causing my problem is that the cells.

I am trying to have highlight are calculated themselves based on a formula. see the attached spreadsheet for information.

I have a spreadrsheet (sample attached) which populates a calender due to columns on seperate sheets being filled with text and corresponding dates. I started using conditional formatting to highlight certain conditions but soon realised I need more than 3 so I tried looking into VBA - and failed.

All the cells in the calender have the 3 usual conditions associated to them but in addition I need to be able to colour individual cells if they contain certain phrases or parts of phrases like "BP" or "Current"

I have a worksheet that has times based on 7 minute intervals. If I post 10:37 AM in cell b5 then again in cell b6 I would like b6 to highlight.

I'm trying to use countif($b$3:$b$15,b2)>1 to highlight duplicate times in column B. For some reason it will not work for me. Should I use something different?

What i want to do is highlight all row instances where that row column10 has the text "Roller" . All i can see is the forumular =$J1="Roller" ive tryed to select just the single cell J and tryed the whole row and a range. Though i get a error message about =-+ quotation ect.
