Find Largest Number In A Range And Change Font To Bold

Jun 19, 2009

I need to create a macro that will examine a range of cells, for example D12:T12, find the cell with the largest number value in that range then set the font for that cell to bold (or red, or change the cell background color).

Find The Largest Number And Then Return The Name From A Different Column

Jan 15, 2007

I'm using the LOOKUP function to find the largest number and then return the name from a different column, it looks like this:

=LOOKUP(LARGE(round1!\$F\$2:\$F\$65,1),round1!\$A\$2:\$A\$65)

but all I get is hashN/A?

Extract Cells With Largest Number Of Digits From A Column

Mar 29, 2014

I basically I have a column with numbers. All the numbers are positive integers. What I like to do is have a VBA function that extracts the integers with the largest number of digits. So for example if we have the following column:

12

123

234

12346

2345

[code].....

So basically we search for largest number of digits, and extract the numbers that fit this category, which could be just one number or multiple numbers.

Find Largest Number In Array And Give Result As Column Heading

Aug 9, 2013

I'm trying to find the largest number in a row and then have the column heading (text) as the result. I can find the largest number by using =max(numb1, numb2 ....) but then how do I get the heading of the column as the result. An example of what I want to happen is below

Red
Green
Blue
Orange
Yellow
Result

2
4
3
6
1

[code]...

I anticipate an issue where 2 columns have the same largest number and not sure how to over come this either with multiple answers

Retrieving Column Header For Largest Or Second Largest Value In Row?

May 12, 2012

I have a table showing interest levels in training courses from a group of schools, eg:

English Maths Science
School1 3 4 2
School2 7 1 0
School3 3 2 5

I want to identify the column heading for the first, second and third most popular courses. ie for School1 the most popular course is Maths, second most popular is English and so on.

I have tried using the OFFSET function, which worked if I provided the cell location of the required value. I then looked at the ADDRESS function to provide the cell location: eg For School2 find the 2nd most popular course:

But I have got stuck with what I should enter for COLUMN(data?) as I do not know in which column the second largest value is.

I am sure Excel has the required functionality.

Conditional Formating & "IF": Format To Red BOLD In Column

Copy Cells From Column To Adjacent Column If Bold Or Empty

May 20, 2008

I have a worksheet on which the data is already grouped. At the top of each group is a row that contains only the group name. Since the rest of that row is blank, I want to use a blank cell on that row as a reference, then copy the group name to a newly created column, then fill that column down to the next group.

The goal is to create a column that contains the group name, rather than just having the group name as a " header" at the top of each group.

Conditional Formatting Each Column In Itself

Feb 1, 2014

I have a column containing 8760 item (365*24), I divided them into days, one column for each day, modifying a macro I found here. Now I want to conditionally format these columns in themselves with color scales. But if I select 365 columns at the same time and do it, it takes the highest and lowest of all the numbers and format. I want it to format each column using the highest and lowest values in itself. How do I do this without selecting every column one by one and turning conditional formatting on manually?

Conditional Formatting In Column

Mar 26, 2008

I've copied a sample of my worksheet below (there are 52 of these in my workbook). i'd like excel to place conditional formatting in column M (i.e. "Promo Proice Per Unit"). So that if the price is different to the price in column L (i.e. "Shelf Price Per Unit") then excel will apply conditional formatting to the corresponding cell in column M.

So for example, in row 10 (product 5) the promo price (column M) is different to the shelf price (column L). It'd be great if excel wold then automatically format that cell as the example in the below table (i did the formatting manually).

When i tried to do this using the format/conditional formatting way i couldnt figure out how to tell excel what to do as its a little more advanced than the options that it gives you in that window?

Conditional Formatting For Column D

Jan 29, 2010

I want a to include conditional formatting for Column D in my spreadsheet to highlight cells that have information in them but that are less than 17 digits. (The cell will be filled with alpha & numeric data)

How do I do this?

Conditional Formatting Of A Part Of Column

Dec 21, 2013

I'm trying to build a simple spreadsheet that allows me to auto highlight the day in the week and part of the column.

I include a sample sheet... above saturday there is the formula I use to determine the day of the week.

Conditional Formatting - Full Row/Column

Oct 13, 2009

If a cell in Column F = Closed Then, the entire row is filled green. If a cell in Column F = Open Then, the entire row is red with a strike through. I'm guessing this is simple, but I can only conditionally format on a cell-by-cell basis right now

Conditional Formatting Based On Value In Another Column

Feb 17, 2014

I have a value in column H7 as 2000.

I have columns M to X labeled Jan to Dec. I want to highlight in yellow values in the row M7 to X7 if they are greater than 2000!

Then, I need to copy this conditional formatting down the columns under M to X, but under column H the values will be different, but I still want the same results, values greater than the value under column H then highlight in yellow.

I thought I had the answer but when I tried to copy down, it was making cells yellow that were clearly less than the column H value.

Conditional Formatting - Column And Row Highlighting

Nov 5, 2013

I have a query relating to conditional highlighting - specifically highlighting a cell's column and row based upon whether it contains data or not i.e. if it is blank, it's column and row remain unhighlighted, but when it contains data, it's column and row should become highlighted. I could probably manage this myself but I have a few more specific requirements which I have illustrated with a few screenshots, however I can't see how to make these available to view here!I

Conditional Formatting With Reference To The Whole Column

Jun 29, 2006

I have made a sample file with conditional formatting. The file contains 3 sheets which contain a number of orders. Conditional formatting is changing colour of the whole line depending on value in column C. The formatting contains reference to a certain cell in column C. It is very easy to make when the lists are so short: I make conditional formatting for line 2 with reference to cell C2, copy formats in the other 2 lines and change formula references to C3 and C4. However in the original spreadsheet there might be more than 5000 lines per sheet and it will be too time consuming to correct the formulas manually. Does anyone know how I can make a reference to column C without specifying each particular cell?

Conditional Formatting With If Statement - Response Due Column

Mar 25, 2014

I created added conditional formatting to the Response Due column, to keep track of when response was due.

I only want the conditional formatting to be applied if the cell next to it is blank.

For example, the last one on my attachment is due 3/26/14 but I have already submitted a response (see column K)

What can I add so that only those dates next to a blank in column K get the conditional formatting?

Conditional Formatting (column H Changes To Yes I Want The Background Of The Whole Row To Change To Red)

Jan 6, 2010

I have a spreadsheet where column H can be either yes or no. When column H changes to Yes I want the background of the whole row to change to Red.

e.g. Cell H4 contains the word no. I then change this so that it says "yes". I want the background of row 4 to go red. so A4, b4, c4, d4, e4, h4 all go red.

With the type of conditional formatting i normally do i can only get cell H4 to go Red by putting cell value = yes as the condition. I cant for the life of me think of a formula or way round of doing this.

Conditional Formatting - Highlighting One Or Two Numbers In A Column?

May 18, 2013

I want to have Excel highlight one or two numbers/cells in one column based on the value in another cell. I am attempting to do this using Conditional Formatting.

For example, if X1 is BETWEEN A2 and A3, I want to highlight A2 AND A3. I have used various AND and IF functions to achieve this goal.

Also, if X1 is EQUAL to A2, I want A2 to be highlighted. This is easy to do with a simple formula.

But my problem is this: if X1 is equal to A2, I want ONLY A2 highlighted. If X1 is between A2 and A3, I want BOTH A2 and A3 highlighted. I cannot figure out how to achieve both. For example, when X1 = A3, A2 AND A3 are being highlighted, instead of just A3. I would prefer to do this without a macro, if possible. Can this be done?

Example formulas I have tried which easily achieve the highlighting of two cells when the value is between them:

Condition 1=IF(AND(\$I\$35>I8,\$I\$35<I7),1," ")+IF(\$I\$35<>I7,1," ")
Condition 2=IF(AND(\$I\$35<I6,\$I\$35>I8),1," ")+IF(\$I\$35<>I7,1," ")

It appears that the +IF, etc. functions are not doing anything.

This is more complicated by the fact that the value of, in the above example, I35 is based on a value from another sheet (I used a function to transfer a value from one sheet to I35 in the other sheet). As data are entered on Sheet1, the value in I35 in Sheet2 changes.

Conditional Formatting Based On Status Column?

Sep 29, 2011

I am putting together a worksheet with all my teams tasks. I have columns A:U and Status is column "M". What i want to do is when ever i select Complete from the list in Column "M" i want to the row to turn Green.

I tried the following:

Selected the Range
From Conditional Formatting menu selected Manage rules
Selected new rule then Use formula to determine which cells to format
formula i used =\$M\$2=complete and selected green from the format menu

BUT nothing is happening. What am I doing wrong.

BTW the Values in Column are Complete,Development, Not Started Research, QA/UAT. If I can conditionally format based on these selections that would be even better.

Conditional Formatting To A Column Based On Date

Mar 7, 2012

I have a column of cells containing dates. I need to change the colour of any cell which is 7 days older than todays date. I would like to leave the header and any blank cells unchanged. Every formula I've tried has changed the enire column, or if I selected a range, the entire range.

VBA Macros For Conditional Formatting And Column Hiding

Oct 11, 2013

I am totally new to Macros. I need a Macro which should format a column based on the value of another column.

Consider I have 10 rows. I have to format column D, based on the value of Column E. If the value of Column E is > 1000, then the background color of Column D should be changed as green. The most important requirement is Column E should be invisible, Changing the font color of Column E as White does not seem ok cuz when we select the sheet entirely using Ctrl+A, the white values are very much visible. Can this be achieved using a macro?

Conditional Formatting Based On Adjacent Column Value

Feb 25, 2009

I'm trying to highlight cells a certain color based on the value of the cell 1 column to the left. How would I be able to do this in conditional formatting?

Example)
Highlight the cells in "Visit 2" column if it is greater than the "Projected Visit 2" column.

NameProjected Visit 2Visit 2Person 124-Nov-0820-Nov-08Person 226-Jan-0927-Jan-09Person 32-Jan-082-Jan-08Person 430-Dec-0829-Dec-08Person 46-Nov-0830-Oct-08

Script To Add Conditional Formatting Rules To Column Of Cells

Dec 2, 2013

I'm having to successfully add three conditional formatting rules, and associated cell interior colour formats if any of the rules are met.

Each time I run my macro, I want to refresh every cell, within a defined range within a Col P, with these rules.

So far, I can add the three rules to each cell, but when I try and add the format colour - for when a rule is met - I keep getting a 'Subscript out of range error'.

(As an aside, is my For / Next loop approach the best one to take to add the formatting to each cell, or can it be written much simpler?)

Here's my script:

VB:
Dim Col_P As Range
Dim Cell_in_ColP As Long
'Set up range of cells to add conditional formatting rules to
Set Col_P = Worksheets("tRIIO Pack Notices").Cells(2, 16).Resize(Lrow - 1)

[Code] ......

Conditional Formatting - Use Info From 2 Columns To Format 3rd Column

May 24, 2014

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.

Cancel Conditional Formatting If Date Entered In Column

Cells in Column F change colour under certain conditions. How do I cancel or apply no format to cells in Column F if any date is entered in Column G.

Conditional Formatting: Format 3 Columns Depending On Certain Value From Another Column

Mar 26, 2009

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.

Conditional Formatting A Column And Highlight The Cells That Fall Within The Top 20%

Sep 16, 2009

I 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%.

Conditional Formatting Based On Names In One Column And Amounts In Another.

Jan 30, 2010

For my example, in column B I have a list of guest names. These names will repeat based on their entries.

In column C I have amounts next to their name.

If the total of all amounts next to their name equal \$1,000 or more I want all the rows that their name is in to be highlighted.

I attached an example.

Conditional Formatting Stops Working After Adding Column

May 21, 2013

I have a conditional formula that highlights dates red when it meets a certain criteria. The file named MS Working, the conditional formatting formula (formula below) works as it should with no issues. The other file MS NOT Working, the conditional formatting formula (formula below) has stopped working as it should. What I did? I inserted a new column to the left. Where the MS Working file has only 1 column to the far left, the MS NOT Working file now has 2 columns to the far left.

It seems as if the formula adjusted itself when I inserted the new column; however, its not working.

MS Working
Conditional Formula: =AND(TODAY()>B3,NOT(ISODD(COLUMN())),B3<>"",OR(C3="",C3=0),B3<>0)

MS NOT Working
Conditional Formula: =AND(TODAY()>C3,NOT(ISODD(COLUMN())),C3<>"",OR(D3="",D3=0),C3<>0)
