# Conditional Formatting Negative Time

Apr 24, 2009

Excel 2000. I am having a little problem getting the list of numbers detailed below to turn red if Negative and Green if positive, (0:00 to stay blank). These numbers will changed between a maximum of 120:00hrs and -120:00hrs....

## How To Make Conditional Formatting For Negative Numbers

Feb 19, 2014

I need the conditional formatting to make all numbers that are zero clear (i.e. no fill).

I need it to make all negative numbers to be red, however it doesn't seem to recognize "-1" as a number, and ends up highlight everything red when I say "highlight values < -1 red".

How would I do this?

## Conditional Formatting With OR Statement And Negative Values

Dec 11, 2013

I am attempting to add conditional formatting (yellow fill) to cells that are greater than 15% or less than -15%. I've tried the following formula but, it highlights all cells.

=or(b2:b5>15%,b2:b5

## Dealing With Negative Time Formatting

Jul 16, 2007

It seems that time (i.e. -1:00) will be default as #########, etc. This makes me very unhappy. How to get around?

I could be fine with converting time to a total in seconds (i.e. 1:00 converted to 60 seconds)... but I'm not sure what kind of formula could do that.

## Conditional Formatting Highlights Same Number Even If Positive / Negative

May 29, 2013

Can I use Conditional formatting (highlights duplicate values) but highlight the number even if the number is an Positive or Negative number.

It must highlight the number if it's -300 or 300 in both instances.

## Conditional Formatting - Objects (Red Arrow Points Down To Signify Negative Change)

Apr 8, 2009

I have two arrows:
- Red Arrow points down to signify negative change
- Green Arrow points up to signify positive change

These arrows look exactly like the Excel 2007 conditional formatting arrows you would apply to a cell - the only difference is that I have inserted them as shapes so I can float them over a graph.

GOAL: Corresponding with the graph, if a cell shows a (+) change, then I display green arrow and hide red arrow. Vice versa for a (-) change.

## Conditional Formatting With Time Value?

Jul 16, 2013

I have an Excel report I have to generate. I need "Call Back" (F3) to show highlighted in red if time value of (F3) is = to or greater than 4 hrs. of "Time Reported" (C3) and highlighted in green if value is before 4 hrs. Also "Arrival Time" (G3) needs to be highlighted green if within 24 hrs. of "Time Reported" (C3) and highlighted red if after 24 hrs. of "Time Reported" (C3).

## Conditional Formatting - Overlapping Time

Jan 29, 2014

I would like cells to highlight within a row only if they are non-blank and if other non-blank cells in that row fall within the same time range.

See the attached example for what I'm looking to do. I can setup my sheet one of two ways (as shown) if it makes finding a solution easier.

## Conditional Formatting Using Hours/time

Jul 21, 2009

I'm trying to use conditional formatting to highlight phone calls that came in between certain hours.

The call times are in the custom format h:mm, although it could easily be changed to an Excel time format. I'm using Excel 2002. I want the cell to have a different fill color if it falls within particular time frames.

Example:

If the call came in between 22:00 and 23:59 color is light green.
If the call came in between 23:59 and 08:00 the color is yellow.

## Using Conditional Formatting - Cells Show In Red If The Time Is After 16:30 But Before 07:30?

Feb 3, 2014

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.

=IF(\$E3>=\$P\$3,IF(\$E3<\$Q\$3,TRUE,FALSE))

P3 = 07:30 and Q3 = 16:30

## Conditional Formatting On Numerous Worksheets At One Time

Nov 2, 2011

Is it possible to perform conditional formatting on numerous worksheets at one time. I have about 50 worksheets that I would like to perform the same conditional format on. Is there a way to do this.

## Conditional Formatting / Time From Specific Date

Nov 29, 2012

I am trying to get conditional formatting to work on this problem but I am getting nowhere fast,

In A1 I have a start date, I want B1 to turn Green if A1 is less that 1 year old, C1 to turn Yellow if A1 is between 1 - 3 years old and D1 to turn red if A1 is more then 3 years old.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Time Of Day In Cell

Jul 27, 2006

I would like to use Conditional Formatting to format a cell depending whether it past a certain time, such as 3:45 PM. Naturally, entering the time as the condition does not work. Is there a way to do this?

## Conditional Formatting / VBA Based On Selected Time Range

Nov 26, 2013

Attached is a workbook. I have manually highlighted the cells to give idea of what I would like the outcome to be.

Moonah OPS sheet.

In Row 5(Shift times), under the drop down menu in cells B5:J5, there is a range of Shift times.
And for the purpose of this I have selected
B5 as 0800:1621, manually highlighted B11:B27
C5 as 06:00, manually highlighted C7:C24
D5 as 07:00:1521, manually highlighted B11:B27
E5:I55(RDO, REC, SICK, Travel) can remain as manual input if it is to much to work out.

Is it possible or just a pipe dream, to use some method to automatically highlight a range of cells based on the C5:J5 'time'?

If the time is an actual shift time, the colour will be green and dark green writing as default, then we can allocate jobs/training/meetings and manually colour them.

## Excel 2010 :: Merge Conditional Formatting On One Cell At A Time

Aug 1, 2014

I am using the following formula on Excel 2010 in conditional formatting

=\$D5=VLOOKUP(\$B5,'Approved Master OLD'!\$B:\$BC,3,0)=FALSE

However I am trying to apply this to a whole column but the numbers are not (D5,B5) moving down (to D6,B6), When I use the format painter it is taking too long as I can only merge conditional formatting on one cell at a time and I have 30 colums and 390 rows to apply this formatting to.

## Negative Formatting ( ) Alignment

Sep 22, 2009

How to show negative values displayed in brackets so that it is aligned properly with positive values in the same column. That is, the right bracket of the negative value is as follows:

(1,234.56)
800.12 - so that 2 is aligned underneath 6

I have done research on the forum and help on vba and got the following
"#,##0.00_);[Red](\$#,##0.00)"

I understand that the underscore is needed for the alignment.
However, when I include the _) the above is shown as follows:

(1,234.56)
800.12_) the underscore and bracket are included and the bracket and is aligned underneath the right bracket above.

## Axis Formatting Negative Numbers

Apr 26, 2014

I am using the following format code for the y axis of a line chart. I am shortening the axis to show 3M or 500K instead of \$3,000,000 or \$500,000. I can't get it to work with negative numbers, I get the full \$3,000,000. Somewhere I read you can only do 3 formats in a formula. Is there a way to include negative numbers using this formatting?

[>999999]\$#,,”M”;[>999]\$#,”K”;\$#

## Formatting Numbers To Have Negative In Brackets?

Apr 2, 2014

I am currently using the following format to display numbers in my excel.

_(* #,###,###_);_(* (#,###,###);_(* "-"_);@

The brackets and underscores are used so that the positive and negative numbers align with overhanging brackets.

I want to modify the format such that it is able to display decimals where ever applicable.

For example

1,000 display as 1,000
0 display as a dash "-"
1.265 display as 1.265
-0.51 display as (0.51)

I tried changing it to:

_(* #,###,###.###_);_(* (#,###,###.###);_(* "-"_);@

However it added a "." to all positive and negative numbers regardless of whether there were decimals after it.

e.g.

10 displayed as 10.
-30 displayed as (30.)

In otherwords - I am trying to find the "general" format and modify it to include brackets for negative number, and also modify it so that the positive numbers aligning with the negative numbers with the ) over hanging.

## Negative Time

Jan 30, 2007

i am tracking my working hours at night, so i type in the time i start and the time i quit like this:

A 1 start B 1 end

A 2 22:30 B 2 02:30

now i want to calculate the time between.
but since excel don't like the negative time i got a problem. i figure i must make a function something like
=IF(B2<A1,B2+24)

i have tried a few but i don't get the parameters right so i get errors,

## Negative The Time

Mar 8, 2008

I have a formula calculating time to the second (e.g HH:MM:SS). I am calculating the difference from the time something was scheduled to be done vs. when it was actually completed. What I can't get Excel to do is calculate the same time but listing the time in negative, as if the project went over and by how much.

I know how to do this in numbers view, but unable to do this in time view.

## Currency Formatting Show A Negative Amount

Jan 19, 2010

When a user enters an amount in a cell, in �'s, i need it to show a negative amount. So if they enter �100 I want excel to regard it as -�100.

## Account For �negative� Time

Dec 9, 2009

I�m trying to get the difference between times, BUT I want to account for �negative� time. So if I project that an employee will finish a task at 2 am, and they finished at 2:30 am, I want the result to be -:30, not just :30. If they finished at 1:30 then it would just be :30. Hence, my dilemma. I can get the difference, but didn't think Excel could recognize negative times. Right now I am using =MOD((A1-A2),1) or =(A1-A2+(A1<A2))*24/24 and in cells A1+A2 I am using military time.

## Negative Time Formula

Dec 22, 2009

I can't use 1904. I have a formula that almost works.

I am doing everything in Military time. This is the finial peice of the puzzle.

Our shift begins at 18:00 and ends up until 7:00 (am) or so depending onwork

A1 I have a time (Projected-Estimate of when all work should be done)
A2 I have a time (Actual- Time the work was actually complete.)
A3 Will be show the difference in either a Negative or Positive time.

Three Examples: (The first two work as is and are perfect) ....

## Display Negative Time?

Nov 14, 2008

how to do that? In "mm:ss" format if possible

## Time Of Day As Negative Decimal

Feb 6, 2012

Data from a SQL database represents time of day as a string of x's when imported into Excel. With CLEAN, I found that noon is -0.5.

This means that the calculation being used for noon is (24 * -0.5), or -12, meaning "go to the end of the 24 hour day, then go back half a day to noon." Similar calculations work other times of day.

Time entries that start in one day and end in the next are not allowed, so there is no problem with a change in day,

How can I convert this to the AM/PM time that my users need?

## Handling Time Goes To Negative Using VBA

Jun 11, 2009

My worksheet takes a time feed in the format '00:01:05' and I want to trigger an event when it goes to negative (eg, -00:01:05). But I have no idea how to handle it.

## Negative Time Subtraction

Jul 18, 2006

Ecel 2000

If Ii subtract time
eg 22:00-01:00 I get ############### wrong
If I subtract 22:00 23:00 I get 1 HR correct

## Negative Time Formula Variation

Dec 22, 2009

(First please don't send me a link on how to subtract time or show Negative time. I know about 1904 ect.. I can't use that. I need a variation on the formula I am using if possible)

A1 I have a time
A2 I have a time
A3 I have a formula subtracting A2 from A1

The times will vary in A1 & A2. Sometimes A1 will be earlier or later thus giving me negative or positive times. I have a formula that will give me a correct answer but will always show either Positive or Neg depending on what I put in the last part of the formula "-H:MM or H::MM" =TEXT(MAX(\$A\$1:\$A\$2)-MIN(\$A\$1:\$A\$2),"-H::MM") in A3. I want it to do the subtraction but say if A1 is > than A2 then "-H::mm", If A1 is < A2 then "h::mm". I don't know if that is possibly or how to incorporate that into what I have.

## Negative Time Or Date Display As ########

Apr 29, 2008

I have one service level sheet where i used data in time format. I am getting error while using this sheet. I will just explain it in simple way...............

Cell C D F

1 23:04 23:13 00:03

In cell G1 i have formula to get time difference between cell C1 and D1 and its give me difference between these both time as 00:09.

Formula is =IF(OR(ISBLANK(C1),ISBLANK(D1)),"",D1-C1)

In cell H1 i have formula to get difference time between cell C1 and F1.

Formula is =IF(OR(ISBLANK(C1),ISBLANK(F1)),"",F1-C1)

But in Cell H1 i am getting Error as Negative time or date display as ########

Is there anyway where i can get Exact time diffrence between Cell F1 and Cell C1

## Formula Returning Negative Time

Aug 9, 2009

the Times work fine 22:00pm to 5:30am or 6:00am to 5:30am

Formulas
J4

=IF(ISNUMBER(D4),(D4>E4)*MEDIAN(0,E4-N\$4,O\$4-N\$4)+MAX(0,MIN(O\$4,E4+(D4>E4))-MAX(N\$4,D4))-F4-L4,0)

K4

=IF(ISNUMBER(D4),MAX(0,MOD(E4-D4,1)-J4-L4-M4-I4-F4),0)

L4

=IF(ISNUMBER(D4),IF(MOD(E4-D4,1)-F4>P\$4,(MOD(D4+P\$4,1)>E4)*MEDIAN(0,E4-N\$4,O\$4-N\$4)+MAX(0,MIN(O\$4,E4+(MOD(D4+P\$4,1)>E4))-MAX(N\$4,MOD(D4+P\$4,1))),0),0)

M4

=IF(ISNUMBER(D4),MAX(MOD(E4-D4,1)-F4-I4-L4-P\$4,0),0)

but if I try 22:00pm to 6:00am or later

The following is displayed

Negative Time in J4 and the wrong result in K4

this is not what I need

It should be showing the following

J4 2:00 K4 5:00 L4 00:00 M4 00:00
