# Conditional Formatting Of Dates - Highlighting Of Columns

Jul 11, 2006

Well I spent some time yesterday trying to figure this one out. It was only last week that I have taught myself how to use VBA in excel. However this looks like a though one.

Simply what i would like to do is highlight a column of a certain date (till a certain row number) based on a list of dates.

eg. Across the top I have a set of dates and on another sheet i have a list of dates.

I understand that there is a VBA code for such conditional formatting but i can't get my head around it.

## Conditional Formatting - Highlighting Lowest Value Per Row

Apr 6, 2014

I have made a price comparison table.

It is set out as follows:

B = price , C= supplier, code D = price, E = supplier, code F = Price, H = supplier code, J = Price, K, Supplier code, L = Price, M = supplier code, N = price, O = Supplier code.

Each row is a product, so I am trying to compare each suppliers price (B,D,F,H,J,L,N) per row and highlight the cheapest price.

Whenever I get it to work it looks for the cheapest price in the entire table rather than on a row by row basis.

## 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 - Highlighting New Additions To List

## Conditional Formatting / Offset - Highlighting Range?

Feb 2, 2013

I want the range to be highlighted as well, but I don't know how to do it.

## 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 - Highlighting Specific Cells

Jun 7, 2013

I'm having issues with conditional formatting. I used the INDIRECT formula to highlight specific rows.

For example, column A has the days of the week. I wanted the whole row highlighted if it was a Saturday. I used:

=INDIRECT("a"&Row())="Sat"

What I want to do now is to highlight specific cells (Columns F and G) if column A has Friday in it. I do not want the whole row highlighted if it contains Friday.

## Conditional Formatting Highlighting Data That Matches On 2 Different Worksheets?

Jul 17, 2012

I have 2 worksheets. One has locations with numbers, example:

275 Location 1
276 Location 2

I have all my locations on the second sheet, but in 2 different columns, listed with numbers only, example:
271 275
272 300

I have 2 scenarios I need help with.

1st:
If any of the numbers on sheet 1 match the numbers in column 1 on sheet 2, highlight the number on sheet 1 in green If any of the numbers on sheet 1 match the numbers in column 2 on sheet 2, highlight the number on sheet 1 in red

2nd:
If the number on sheet 2 matches any number on sheet 1, highlight green

I want these to apply to all the cells that have numbers (it could apply to all cells I guess as it should ignore it if it doesn't match, I would assume)

## Conditional Formatting In Excel For Each Row Showing Max / Highlighting It And Ignoring Zero

Jun 1, 2014

I have a data with say around 500 rows and want to determine MAX for each row and HIGHLIGHT them, also if data in all cells is zero then it should ignore and highlight none.

I have tried this formula
=B2=(MIN(IF(\$B2:\$E2>0,\$B2:\$E2))).

But this highlights all the zeroes, you can refer attachment for sample..

## Excel 2010 :: Highlighting Data Based On Conditional Formatting

Apr 1, 2014

I'm using Excel 2010 on my Mac. I would like to set up the data as follows:

A
B
C
D
E
F

NAME
DATA X
DATA Y
DATA Z
DATA XX
DATA YY

NAME
90%
88.2
410
88.4%
97.8

[Code] ........

Now what I would like to do is have the data in each column highlighted a certain color based on specific ranges. For example in Column B I want anything from 92% - 100% highlighted blue. I would like 83% - 91.9% highlighted purple, and anything under 83% highlighted red. Do I need to have a conditional format entered in each cell? Can I set up a conditional format for the whole column? Once I can figure the formatting in my example the remaining columns will be a breeze since they will be set up in the same manner just different number ranges, same colors will apply.

## Conditional Formatting - Using Dates

May 28, 2009

Im trying to get conditional formatting to look at a completion date in cell A5 and getting cell D5 to change colour depending on the length of time to cell A5. What I would like is for D5 to change to red if there is 4 months or less to the completion date in A5. D5 to change to orange if there is still 4 - 8 months from the completion date A5. D5 to change to green if there is still 8 - 12 months from the completion date A5. Hopefully the formula will also work if cell D6 is looking at completion date in A6 with the same traffic light system and so on.

## Conditional Formatting For Dates?

Mar 2, 2014

I have a sheet where K5:K26 contains names of months. I would like to conditionally format that column so that any month that is less than TODAY appears red. So, if that column has a cell value of February, the cell would appear red since we are already in March. I would guess this involves a formula using TODAY, but I can't figure it out myself.

I know how to apply conditional formatting; I just lack the proper formula.

## Conditional Formatting For Three Different Dates

Jul 11, 2014

I am trying to use conditional formatting and its not working for me.

If I put the date 1 Jan 2014 in the cell of E2 I need a conditional format that will turn the cell yellow when it is two month from being a year old, so on 1 Nov 2014 it should turn yellow. Then I need it to turn orange when it is one month away from being a year old, so Dec 1 2014 it turns orange. And then when it is over a year old it turns red, So 1 Jan 2015 the cell turns red.

The formatting I have now turns them yellow, orange, and red but at the wrong times, not sure how to fix that.

## Conditional Formatting For Dates (x3 Criteria)

Jan 31, 2013

I'm desperately trying to work out conditional formatting for different dates.

I have =TODAY() in F3

In the remainder of column F (from F19 to F625) I have either blank cells or varying dates (dating back to 2011 and dates going forward into 2014).

I need to Red/Amber/Green the following:

Green = any dates which are 45 days or more in the future from today's date
Amber = any dates which are between +1 and +45 days in the future from today's date
Red = any dates which are today's date or a date in the past

I can get one or two of the criteria working i.e. Green and Red, but not the Amber. Is one overriding or ignoring another?
