Conditional Formatting Of Cell That Has A Formula?

Jun 1, 2013

I have a cell that has a conditional formatting of Cell Value< 90 the cell value is based off a formula which is

=LEFT(E48,LEN(E48)-1)

which when it comes out to me less then 90 I need it to color red. But it does not is there something that I need in the conditional formatting to tell that its a number?

Conditional Formatting With One Cell Having A Formula?

Aug 27, 2013

This is the most simplest conditional formatting which is working except on some cells. I want to compare two columns cells ex : if A=B , then format A as green.

Its working, the "formula" and "cell value contains" everything except for few cells. Cell B has formula's in it related to other cells. When i enter values in other cells, Cell B computes but A refuses to format "green".

If I just enter same value[ex 1, 1]in both the cells sans formula ,it highlights A green . I want to know , if the formula in cell B is causing the errors in formatting and if it is

Cell Format For Conditional Formatting With A Formula?

Jan 25, 2012

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.

Cell Formula Based On Conditional Formatting?

Dec 3, 2012

Say I have the following....

12345678910
59465465495652505853

I conditional format the top number which in this case is 65, how do I highlight the number directly above it? Either by another conditional format or some formula that picks the number out. I've tried HLOOKUP and VLOOKUP, but its giving me spurious results.

Conditional Formatting With Formula Referencing Range In Different Cell

Oct 21, 2008

I want to set a conditional format to cell A1 with a value in cell P1 When the value in P1 is between 0 and 10 the conditional value in P1 should be set.

Note

cell A1 is also set with a conditional format to put a border around it when there's a value in A1 (cellvalue is not equal to " ")
So the formula referencing P1 would be a second condition.

Copy Non Absolute Cell References In Conditional Formatting Formula?

Dec 3, 2012

I have this fairly simple formula which decides whether to shade a cell or not

=AND(\$X\$1<>"TBD",R3<>"None",AC3="Y")

This is set in cell R3 and I want to copy it all the way down the cells in the R column. However, when I copy & paste (and copy and paste using paste special, formatting) the R3 and AC3 cell references do not update to match their relevant rows. eg If I highlight cell R26 the conditonal formatting formula still refers to cell R3 and AC3, not R26 & AC26. I'm using Excel 2010 but I don't recall this happening in 2003.

Conditional Formatting - Highlight Yellow If Cell Is Keyed In Instead Of Formula

Dec 17, 2012

I have a file where the cells are all formulas.

Employees are able to key in a number instead of using the number derived from the formula.

I want the cell to use conditional formatting without the use of macros, so it will highlight yellow if the cell is keyed in instead of a formula.

Is this possible? I have tried numerous things, but none seem to work.

Example:

Cell A6 has the number 24,248 derived from a formula.

Employee thinks the number should be 30,000 and keys that number in.

If it is 24,248, I want the number to have no fill, but if it is a keyed in number, I want it to be highlighted.

Excel 2010 :: 3+ Conditional Formatting Rules For Cell Range Based On Formula From Other Cells

Feb 5, 2013

how to apply conditional formatting via VBA to a range of cells based on input from another range of cells. Obviously this would be easy in Excel 2010, but I'm still using 2003 at the office and it needs to stay in this format to be readable by other users:

For cells M8:EK8, my conditional formatting
condition 2: Formula Is =AND(\$E\$8>=M2,((\$E\$8-\$D\$8)>=(N2-\$M\$2))), color index is 40
condition 3: Formula Is =AND(\$F\$8<=M2,\$G\$8>=M2), color index is 39
I want to add:
condition 4: Formula Is =AND(\$H\$8<=M2,\$I\$8>=M2), color index is 40
condition 5: Formula Is =AND(\$J\$8<=M2,\$K\$8>=M2), color index is 39
and so on

The cells in the range M8:EK8 are blank, they only get colored based on input added to D8 to K8. If there is no input, then the cells should be uncolored.

Excel 2010 :: Icon Conditional Formatting Not Working When Formula Present In Active Cell?

Mar 20, 2014

I am trying to apply icon conditional formatting in a cell. The cell contains the following formula: =VLOOKUP(D20,'owssvr(1)'!O:W,9,FALSE The formula results in a "2", "1", "0" or "-1" in the cell. The icon conditional formatting is not working at all (no icon appears). I have the conditional formatting setup as numbers Green 2, Yellow 1,0 etc based on value. If I delete the formula and just type in any of those numbers directly, it works. I have changed my cells to "number" and it still does not work.

Conditional Formatting Based On Another Cell Conditional Format

Conditional Formatting With Formula?

Jul 18, 2012

I simply need to have column A be red if value is < Column B value and green if it is >. The problem is that if the value in column A is .00000004 and column B is .00000005, it turns red. Example is the first three numbers below the headers....they each are 0%, yet the value on the left turns red because it is .0000005 more than the value on the right. I just want the colors to reflect the numbers which show up as below. Is there a way to do this?

2011 % of PDD
2011 % of Total \$

Formula Using Conditional Formatting

Feb 1, 2008

1. I have a range of random numbers within a column, i.e. A1:A9
2. A specific number will appear in a cell at the end of that column, i.e. A11
3. I need to see via conditional formatting which of the above cells add up to that number.

I am aware that given the numbers in A1:A9, it is possible to have more than one combination of numbers that add up to A11. I would need to see those combinations as well identified using Conditional formatting.

Conditional Formatting Formula

Mar 20, 2007

I am referencing a cell in order to change the background color of a row of cells if the number in column B is = to the number in a specific cell. The formula used in the conditional formatting is =\$B73=\$B\$10. The reference cell \$B\$10 contains the following formula =INT(MAX('Assumptions & Inputs'! F8:F9))

The conditional formatting worked fine when I used that formula. I had to change the formula in cell \$B\$10 so that it would meet a new criteria. When I did that the conditional formatting would not change the color of the row. The new formula that I put in the reference cell \$B\$10 is

='Assumptions & Inputs'!\$D\$8+MAX('Assumptions & Inputs'!\$F\$8-'Assumptions & Inputs'!\$D\$8,'Assumptions & Inputs'!\$F\$9-'Assumptions & Inputs'!\$D\$9)

Conditional Formatting Inside A Formula?

Jun 21, 2014

I have a challenge with conditional formatting. I have products A-K with sales current year and last year and want to have year on year growth. I want to have one column where the cell formatting changes based on data validation.

Let's say product A sold 60 items CY and 50 LY meaning YoY variance is +10 items or +20%. Hence, if the relevant cell says "%" then the YoY figure should say "+20%" (formatted as a percentage) and if "VALUES" then YoY should be 10 (formatted as numbers/absolute values).

Remember also that YoY growth can be +100% (or more), 0% and -100%.

Conditional Formatting - With Two Conditions Within One Formula

Nov 6, 2008

I am trying to use conditional formatting for a cell; It is a cell using Validation; you can choose "Yes" or "No" from a list If the value is "Yes" the cell should be green, regardless of everything else But if the value is "No" it should turn red, but only if a choice in another cell is equal to "X". Otherwise it should be left without special formatting.

Conditional Formatting Formula For Value Between Two Other Values

Jan 10, 2009

I am having a very difficult time trying to figure out a conditional formatting formula for something that seems very simple. There are 3 conditions I would like to apply to cell B2: If the value of I2 is less than or equal to 24, but greater than or equal to 21, shade B2 red. If the value of I2 is less than or equal to 20, but greater than or equal to 12, shade B2 orange. If the value of I2 is less than or equal to 11, but greater than or equal to 8, shade B2 yellow. I am sure I am missing something quite simple here.

Conditional Formatting Formula - Student GPA

Oct 22, 2013

I have a grading system for university students, my spreadsheet looks like this:

Student Name Academic Calendar GPA Fall GPA Winter GPA Spring GPA Summer
John Quarter 3.00 2.56 2.89 3.6
Jane Semester 3.1 n/a 3.21 3.7

I think I will need to do some conditional formatting to make it easy to fill the student GPAs .

I was thinking how to enter a formula to have the GPA winter appear as shaded when I enter "semester" in the Academic Calendar column.

Conditional Formatting Based On Now Formula

Feb 19, 2010

My attached spreadsheet is for tracking when certain tasks were completed on each case and figuring the number of days that it takes to complete these tasks.

The task I am needing help in formatting is the Corrections Received field (column E). We need to track the cases that do not have corrections received within 7 days of the changes being requested (Out for Corrections, column D). The issue is that there would not usually be a date entered in the Corrections Received column when we need to look at those cases...because they would not be received yet. In order to not get an extreme default value (like the -40181 or 40922), I entered the =Now() function in column E (except for first case as an example of what this would look like otherwise).

What I was hoping to be able to do is use conditional formatting to look for that Now() formula. If the formula is present, the cell would be highlighted. If a date were entered, even if it was today's date, the fill on that cell would be removed. That way we could tell when the displayed date is a true date and when it is a placeholder until we receive the information.

Currently, it either highlights no matter what the cell includes or it doesn't highlight anything...

VBA Conditional Formatting Formula Changing?

Dec 22, 2011

My VBA code should post the formula "=IF(\$B6=""Store URL"",TRUE,FALSE)" into the conditional formatting formula box but everytime it pastes something different, such as "=IF(\$B11="Store URL",TRUE,FALSE)"

The full code is:

Sheet1.Select
Set ConditionalFormattingRange = ActiveSheet.Range("B6:F505")
ConditionalFormattingRange.FormatConditions.delete

Conditional Formatting For External Formula?

Dec 8, 2012

(1) I have conditional formatting working to format cells that contain a formula.

(2) I need to also separately conditional format cells which link to a formula in an external worksheet.

I don't wish to use VBA and would like to use defined name range method outlined below.

To do (1) above:

Under define name range, created "cellhasformula", the formula used in the field refers to was: =get.cell(48,indirect("rc",false))

In conditional formatting using: format values where this formula is true. =cellhasformula (works great).

These formulas in their current form, do not work in defining name range:

=InStr(1, c.Formula, ".xls") > 0
or eg =InStr(1,rCell.Formula,"[")>0

exact formula to use in define name range to return a true value if a formula is linked to an external worksheet?

Conditional Formatting Formula To See Duplicates

May 26, 2007

I know it can be done cause I've used it before but I can't seem to make it work this time. I want to use the conditional formatting to compare two ranges of cells within one worksheet I know it's something like =match(A2:C12) the two ranges are sitting one on top of the other. . .

Relative Conditional Formatting Formula

Dec 18, 2007

Is it possible to have the conditional format auto adjust the cell value range (similar to how the drop and drag with the autocomplete cell values turned on works)?

For example:

If I conditional format: A1 - does not equal A2 then change colour to blue. Then use the Format Paint to copy the A1 conditional format to B1. Is there any way that it can auto adjust the cell reference to change to - does not equal B2 (the next cell down and so on) rather than having to manually go to each cell and adjust the cell reference?

Ultimately I want the following to happen:

A1 - does not equal A2 (colour blue)
B1 - does not equal B2 (colour blue)
C1 - does not equal C2 (colour blue) etc

Simple Formula Construction And Conditional Formatting?

Jul 26, 2008

I have used Excel for a number of years and have gotten on ok on my own working out simple formulas myself but I have been stuck on this one for a while. Is it possible to enter a value into a cell and have a predefined formula that works with the data that I enter?? I would like to enter a value between 1-10 and the cell then takes this number and multiplies it by a value in another cell. Eg.

I have a cell that displays �10 (let's say D6)
In another cell I enter 8
I would then like the cell to do the formula =8*D6 automatically, as this value can be different each time (1-10)
