Conditional Formatting For Multiple Columns And Rows?
Mar 28, 2014
I have data in cells A2 - N2 and cell O2 is currently blank. I am trying to set conditional formatting where if O2 has a value entered into it, it will conditional format A2 - N2 and highlight the entire row red.
I tried a formula like =O2"" but that does not work. Also tried a few other things but no luck.
Also, once the formula is set, what is the best way to apply the conditional formatting to rows 3 - 30. I tried the format painter tool but that seems to want to extend the formatting range from rows 3-30 and not just per row.
I'm looking for a Conditional Formatting formula that will check two columns before highlighting the duplicate rows. I need it to be conditional formatting because I know nothing about writing macros or vba (what-ever that is?). Data is entered into Columns A, B, and C. I need to check both column A and C before it highlights the duplicates, based on those two columns. (The format only unique or duplicate values checks only one column.) I have attached an example, but this is just an example, as I have hundreds of lines to go through on the original. (For this example, Row 2 and Row 7 are the duplicates I need highlighted.)
I have what I think is a pretty complicated issue. At my job, we have a running and constantly changing list of jobs that we have to work on throughout the day. The job management system is really unwieldy and it’s often hard to tell what exactly we have to do today and what can wait until tomorrow. So a few times a day, I export the list to an excel doc, which I’m trying to set up with conditional formatting to highlight as green the stuff for today, ghost back what can wait, and leave white and blank the cells that don’t have any info in them. I but the attachment system wasn't working for me, so I can't provide the example I've been working on.
So far, I’ve managed to set up a formula in the conditional formatting that takes into account column C, but I need to take into account information in columns B, C, and D to determine if the job line should be highlighted or dimmed. Column B is the job's title and it is just text, column C is the Begin date, and column D is the due date. here’s what I need the conditional formatting to do.
If the begin date in column C is Today at 9:00am or earlier, and the due date in column D is today, I need to highlight the column. I managed to figure out the first part of this formula, but don’t know how to keep the line from hilighting if the due date is tomorrow: =$C2<=TODAY()+TIME(9,0,0)
The second part is that I need to hilight jobs that begin and are due today (have today’s date in columns C and D), regardless of what time they have if the task title in column B starts with “Rework Request from PS” or “Rework Request from QA"
Ideally, I’d like to change the text color to something nearly white to sort of hide the jobs that don’t need to be done today, and I figured that part out based on the formula I did manage: =$C2>=TODAY()+TIME(9,0,1)
apply this to the whole sheet so I can paste the report into it a few times a day without having to rewrite the formulas in a new sheet every time, and the number of items does change throughout the day. However when I do, the empty cells turn green as if they’re due today, and I can’t figure out how make them stay blank.
I have a spreadsheet of a couple hundred products, their sales over the last 18 months, and then each product's 18 month average monthly sales. What I would like to do is format them so if any of the months' sales are below their respective average, that cell/month with be highlighted. Excel told me that I cannot do this for multiple rows at a time, and I don't want to go row by row for this many products. Attached is a sample file of the first row.
I have been trying to find a way of formatting an entire row based on the contents of cells in each column. However i come unstuck when trying to make the column dynamic. Below is an example:
Month 2010 2011 2012
The idea is that i say current year is 2011 and all rows where C contains an a will turn green. What i would like to achieve is that when i change current year to say 2012 the conditional formatting adjusts so that it looks at D instead of C.
I am using Excel 2003. I have a spread sheet and I am trying to use conditional formatting. But I can't figure out how to use conditional formatting across multiple columns and so I have been doing each column individually which has been kind of a hassle. I also am trying to figure out how to put in a formula so that every occurrence of a certain text will show up a certain color. I know that I can just do "cell value is", "equal to" and click on the cell, but the information in this spread sheet is organized alphabetically and is going to be added to frequently therefore every time I add information it re-organizes. This then messes up my conditional formatting because the text value that was in the cell gets bumped up or down.
I have an Excel worksheet with about 300 rows and 8 columns per row. I want to shade the highest number and the lowest number for each row. I assume the built in conditional formatting is the best place to start, but I don't really know. Sample worksheet attached.
I'm using Conditional Formatting for an entire column to check the value of each cell and compare it to the value of a cell in the same row but a different column. (Cell Value equals =$D2) It works great until I insert or delete a cell in the formatted column. The reference does not change as one would expect. I've played around with formulae such as =$D2<>$P2 but the reference only changes for the P2, not the D2. I've also tried using =CELL("contents", ADDRESS(Row(),4)) but this causes excel to complain.
I am trying to hide/show entire rows of a range based on the conditional formatting in the row. I want all rows with at least one overdue training cell (indicated by a red cell) displayed, and rows with no overdue training hidden. The conditional formatting formulas vary greatly, but always result in a white (unchanged), yellow, or red cell. Here is a sample picture for reference:
The CF formulas vary based mostly on two major factors: the frequency of the requirement found in Column "C" (Monthly, Quarterly, Semi-Annual, or Annual Requirement), and the personnel's arrival on site or date of departure (wheels up) found in Rows("3:4"). Each training class has two rows. The first row indicates the last time the class was completed, and the second row shows when it is due next. Both rows have to be displayed/hidden based on the second row's conditional formatting. Here is the code I am using right now: ...
My conditional formatting code works fine for one column; however, when I try to apply the conditional formatting to two columns, the code only applies to the first column listed. Additionally, I have two sets of "rules" that apply to the same column. One of the "rules" includes two columns. The other rule applies to only one column. I'm not sure if this is my issue, or whether I'm trying to apply the same code to two different columns.
I have ammended the colours to 4 colours that I need for a risk assessment tool . I have added a second worksheet and put a dummy sample of my table there. Can you help me with how to put two colums of conditional formatting in the sheet? The risk rating before and that after the risk treatment? Many thanks in anticipation. I have highlighted in yellow the columns where the product of the consequence and likelihood is likely to be and this is where the colour coding needs to be applied. if you can help with putting the solution in the spread sheet that would be a great help. Any reply via this forum or via my email would be greatly appreciated.
I am new and I hope I have not made a mistake in starting a new thread. Sorry if I have but I wanted to bring this up as a new post so I get a sooner response.
I have rows of information linked to other sheets with forms to fill out (master sheet). I want to be able to have a red fill if one of the cells is blank, which I do have working now, but I want a clear row if the "indicator cell" is blank.
I'd like to compare two columns of data and highlight where a value doesn't occurr in both columns. The problem I have is that one of the columns uses * around the text to ensure it catches all variations of the value.
I have the following formula which would work if the data was exactly the same.
However, these *'s are meaning it never works.
Is there a way to make it so that if the values with the *'s are not found in the 1st column of data, conditional formatting is activated?
I have a spreadsheet for recording property maintenance. All properties are grouped by a city zone in a specific colour, and there is conditional formatting on this. Also drop down lists for properties, contractors etc.
This all worked well, until I needed to start inserting rows. All the conditional formatting and lists didn't replicate on the newly inserted rows.
Also, we need to assign a unique reference number to each row but currently manually inputting them - very inefficient way of doing this as they will inevitably get mixed up and confused as rows are removed.
I'm running a spreadsheet at the moment in 2007, and one of the funcitons I've made it for certain cells to either change format if the number is to big or to small depending on the cell it is.
I have formatted all for one line against duplicate scores on the same line. The problem is this is time consuming and there are 22 different lines. Because with Conditional Formating you can't simply drag like you can with formulas, I was wondering if there was a more simple approach. I have demonstrated the formating required on Row 6, and require the same formating on rows 8:10, 14:26, 32:36.
Also, just to make things complicated, the values change for each line. I have attatched the file. Row 6 with the label DEMO LINE contains all the correct formating I require.
I want this macro to apply the conditional formatting to all rows in each sheet that have "BE" in col G. The macro works fine in Cell A2 only. And only on the worksheet that I have active at the time that I run the macro. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?
I have a worksheet that I use Conditional Formatting to check the dates in a total of 5 columns. In those columns, if the date is before 8/1/2006, it changes the cell color to red. Is there a formula I can put into Condition 2 to that would then clear out the whole row if within those 5 columns there isn't a red cell? This would take hours of work off of my slab.

conditional formatting in Excel. I have two columns with pertinent information. I need to know the following and format accordingly:
1. Is the number in column A positive or negative? 2. Is the number in column B less than 0.05 or 0.10?
I would then like Column C to just be highlighted a certain color depending on the combination... there are 5 possible combinations and I would like the cells to be formatted so that:
1. Positive and less than 0.05 - Bright yellow 2. Positive and less than 0.10 - Pale yellow 3. Negative and less than 0.05 - Bright green 4. Negative and less than 0.10 - Pale green 5. This "combo" just means the criteria wasn't meant... which is possible b/c sometimes Column A may have text instead of a number of b/c the number in column B is not less than 0.10. If either of these is true, I want the cell to remain blank.
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.
