I have a spreadsheet with 'due date' for returns in column L and 'received date' for returns, in the adjacent column M.
I would like to get the due date to turn red when it is overdue, ie. the date in the cell has arrived and no return was submitted. By trawlling the forum, I managed to accomplish this with the following in conditional formatting: Cell value is less than or equal to =TODAY()
All's great.....but - I would like the date to turn back to black if I enter a date in the adjacent received column, column M.
In other words, I want to flag a problem if the due date has passed, but once I receive the return and enter the date I receive it, i would like the due date entry to revert back to the original formatting ie. black. So only the outstanding returns are highlighted.
How to use conditional formatting to show a certain criteria. I need to know if an event happens between 07:30 and 16:30, I can work this out so that the cells show in green. I cannot solve the problem of formatting in red if the time is after 16:30 but before 07:30.
A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.
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´m having aproblem with Excel 2007 about Conditional Formatting. I have a row of Dates for example 02-01-2009 03-01-2009 04-01-2009 , etc in different columns.
Then what I want to do is use Conditional Formatting to Format cells on several rows below according to the day (if its weekend paint red, if not, dont do anything). I'm using the "Use a formula to determine which cells to format" and the condition is (supposing the cells with dates are A1 to C1) =WEEKDAY(A1:C1) > 5 .
So with those 3 dates provided lets suppose Januar2nd is not a weekday, so the outputIwant is: Red White White, (Next Row) Red White White, etc for several rows.
Now what I think is not right is it only works for the row in which I have the cursor so its like: (Lets imagine I selected 3 rows on which I want to see that output) Red White White (The row in which the cursor is works fine), but the next row goes Red Red Red and the third the same.
Is it possible to format a cell based upon the format of another cell? For instance, if the cell to the left of a target cell is bold, is there a conditional formatting cell that can be used so that the target cell is bold as well?
I have a large spreadsheet with a number of columns that are set up for conditional formatting. For example a column of "BUY"'s and "SELL"'s where the "BUY"s are formatted with the default "light green fill, dark green text". I have other columns that are conditionally formatted using a formula. When I base the result on a formula I don't seem to have the option to use the default formats. Is it possible to use the defaults or maybe even how to customize my format to look like the default? It would look a lot better if I had a uniform red/green style throughout the sheet.
I feel like this is a pretty simple question to answer but I cant find an answer to it anywhere or I'm just not skilled enough to understand it. I have two columns D and E that have dates in them. Column D is the purchase date of a computer and column E is how many years months and days its been since it was purchased. I want both columns to be the same color. If the computer is 2 years old or less I want it green, 3-4 yrs old yellow and 4+ red. I have it working for column D but I can't figure out how to apply it to column E.
As a pert of a spreadsheet I have 2 columns (M5:N400) of 400 cells deep. Each cell in these columns contains a formula that counts days, when appropriate. They can end up showing a value of blank, a number between 0 and 5, or any number greater than 5. (But very rarely greater than 30)
If the number is greater than 5 then it means that it has exceeded it's target time and I wish to highlight this with conditional formatting (CF). I have a CF on all cells in both columns that says.
If "The cell value" is "Greater than" "5"... then format the background colour to a pale yellow.
It works, but doesn't work.
If the cell value is 0 to 5 it's unchanged. Good. If the cell value is >5 it changes. Good. BUT, if the cell is blank it also changes. Bad!!!
I assume it is because it is looking at the fact that there is a formula in the cell, even though the displayed value is "". So I tried a second level saying that if the cell is equal to "" then no format, but it still changes.
I am working with the Conditional Formatting, which is fine for one cell. Here is what I am trying to do: IF cell in $A1 = 1 then bold $B2:$M2 and apply solid line border to top of cell ranges. I have tried conditional formatting but it only formats the cells in column A. And I can't seem to find a BOLD statement for the cell formulas.
how the scrolling date bar in the attached is achieved. I am not asking for a step by step with code I am just after the basics of how this was achieved and i will research the rest. Most importantly is how to associate the dates with the rest of the cells in the column, as I imagine this is how I am going to fill the cell...The purpose is to add this scrolling date bar to my workbook, also attached.
I looked through the format link: Conditional formatting page on Ozgrid and was unable to figure out what I want to do.
What I want to do is check a range of cells which have dates in them, and then if they are between such and such dates, they will turn a certain background color. But by "such and such" I mean, between the dates entered in two different cells.
So in the range of A1:A10, if any of those cells are between b1 and b2 then apply color1. If any of them are between b2+1 and b3, then apply color2.
If it's not possible tell me but I think it should be as I can do it with conditional formatting. I need to have 16 conditions though. What it is is a chart with projects in rows and dates in columns. The dates often change and I want to rearrange the entire schedule visually just by changing the date in another place. (I change the date in the target cell, what I call b1 above, and b2-10 are calculated based on that date). Hope that's enough information.
I need for coloring "Expected Delivery Date" column corresponding with "Control Date" and "Control Result. But I want to correspond with the cells' last content of "Control Date" and "Control Result" But first of all I want "Control Date" should be flashed 10 days ago of it's date... (it's already done on my excel file)
Then I want "Expected Delivery Date" as green when - "Expected Delivery Date" =< "Control Date" and "Control Result" =Y (Means Control is Ok on due time)
I want "Expected Delivery Date" as red when - "Expected Delivery Date" > "Control Date" and "Control Result" =Y (Means control is ok not on due time)
- "Expected Delivery Date" > "Control Date" and "Control Result" =N (Means control ok is not given, delayed...)
Hello, we have a stop light spreadsheet for status with several different projects. In each row there are conditional format status green - good, yellow - needs work, red - bad...based on data from another tab.
There is an "overall status" column that pulls the worst color that exists for a given row.
I want set a condition in a cell that contains a date , to change to a colour when this date has passed another date by 3 days. E.g. order date received date if the received date has gone over 3 days past the order date i want it to flag up and change colour.
I am trying to get a row of cells to highlight a percentage based on a date range
Below is an example of what my spreadsheet will look like, very simple for managers to read and understand but I am stuck on how i can get this to display the right way.
In the example i would need the Jan column to colour for a certain percent for 21 days and continue to feb for 26 days. Im not sure if this makes sense but this is what they are asking for. Colour bars to simple show the percent of days off each month.
Name Start Date End Date Jan Feb Mar
Dale 11/01/14 26/02/14 21 days 26 days
I have attached the spreadsheet for an example : Book1.xlsxâ€Ž
Short Version: I need to find a way to have the date in a cell be used for both a calculation (one date subtracted from another) AND a conditional format (Cell changes color based on the month). Cell format is mm/dd/yy
Explanation: We enter information for each work order on a row in our Master Work Order List. For each new work order we start a new row at the bottom of the sheet.
We calculate each work order's throughput time by having a formula in column F that subtracts the Start Date in column D from the Complete Date in column E.
All date values are entered as mm/dd/yy and the cell format is mm/dd/yy.
At the end of the month, we put an AVERAGE formula into a cell in column H and, for the sources, use all cells in column F that represent work orders that were completed for THAT month. The problem is not all work orders complete in the order they started and some can start in one month but not complete until 2 months later, so we can't just click-drag a bunch of cells in a column. Sorting doesn't work because after we click and drag a bunch of cells and get the average, when we re-sort back to Sort by Work Order Number, the clicked-cells don't move, but the data does.
We end up just looking up and down column E looking for dates from this month and hope we got them all.
So I thought, "Hey, I know, I'll put conditional formats into column F so that if the date in column E starts with 01 (January), the cell in column F will turn Red, and if it's 02 (February), the cell will turn Orange and so on through the end of the year! That way we could just look for a given color each month and are MUCH less likely to get it wrong!
I added conditional formatting using the LEFT(E#,2) formula, hit [Enter] and... nothing.
I thought, "I"ll set the cell formats to TEXT so the LEFT formula 'sees' the month number!"
So I set the cell formats to TEXT and then the conditional format 'sees' the '01' for January and changes color!!
But now the Throughput Time formula (=E#-D#) doesn't work.
I think it's because Excel can DISPLAY a date as mm/dd/yy (due to Date Format), but it actually calculates date information based on a number that REPRESENTS the mm/dd/yy. I read that Excel 'sees' each date as a number representing time passing, not as "mm/dd/yy" and uses that number for calculations.
SO, is there a way to have a cell's date be 'calculatable' and still have it change color based on the month?
I have a spreadsheet that keeps track of staff training. in colum A is the date they completed the training. this training expires in 5 years time. i would like the cell to highlight red when the date has expired. and when i enter the new date in 5 yrs time the cell to return to no fill color.
