# Conditional Formatting Of Cells In Multiple Sheets

Sep 6, 2013

I have twelve sheets that each have a total score on cell G10 that I want to have copied to a thirteenth sheet in a specific column (F5-16). What would I have to do to make that happen? The G10 cell is an auto-summed cell, if that makes a difference.

Also, is there a specific way to create formulas?

## Conditional Formatting Multiple Cells

Jan 28, 2014

I need to conditional format a cell based on it's current value and a value in another cell.

For example:

Each person would have a different target. So if Steve has a figure of over 20 his highlights green, Paul 12 etc.

However each person would not appear in the same row each day.

The Conditional Forumla of =(A1="Steve.Smith")+(C1>="20") works, but then applying to all cells messes it up a bit.

Paul.Smith

14

Ian.Smith

15

Jim.Smith

## Conditional Formatting In Multiple Cells

Oct 25, 2007

I am having a problem setting conditional formatting for multiple cells.
The first condition of the conditional formatting works for the cells but the second condition does not. There is probably an easy fix for this but I can't seem to find it.

## Conditional Formatting Of Duplicates Across Multiple Cells

Feb 25, 2014

I use the conditional formatting of duplicates within a column quite often. Now I am trying to highlight duplicates based on multiple cells in the same row. I can't seem to get a formula to make that work. I have four cells in separate columns but the same row, for example H2:K2, H3:K3, H4:K4, etc. I would like to highlight the four cells in that row if there is a duplicate of all four cells in another row. So if one, two or three cells are duplicates in the same column I do not want to highlight any of the cells, it should only highlight the group of four cells if all four cells are identical in another row. Pretty much the same way the default highlight duplicates works, just the value is spread across four cells.

## Applying Conditional Formatting To Multiple Cells?

Apr 25, 2012

If you have a range of cells with values in them (Q2:AZ2), you can use conditional formatting to identify the top x% of the group and it would essentially treat each cell in comparison to the group. I need to identify if a cell in the group is greater than 3*Stdev(Q2:AZ2). Do I have to create conditional formatting for each individual cell or is there a way to apply a function to the group that would recognize each cell the same way that the canned conditional formatting rules work?

## Conditional Formatting If Multiple Cells Contain Same Text

## Conditional Formatting For Cells Which Have Multiple Date Info

Feb 10, 2009

I need for coloring "Expected Delivery Date" column corresponding with "Control Date" and "Control Result. But I want to correspond with the cells' last content of "Control Date" and "Control Result" But first of all I want "Control Date" should be flashed 10 days ago of it's date... (it's already done on my excel file)

Then
I want "Expected Delivery Date" as green when
- "Expected Delivery Date" =< "Control Date" and "Control Result" =Y (Means Control is Ok on due time)

I want "Expected Delivery Date" as red when
- "Expected Delivery Date" > "Control Date" and "Control Result" =Y (Means control is ok not on due time)

- "Expected Delivery Date" > "Control Date" and "Control Result" =N (Means control ok is not given, delayed...)

## Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting On Multiple Cells?

Apr 17, 2012

I'm using 2007 and want to add conditional formatting to multiple cells.

Say I have 3 columns and 10 rows of data (A1:10 ; B1:10 ; C1:10). I want to add an icon set to everything in columns B and C based on a comparison with the figure on their immeidate left. So B1 is compared to A1, C1 to B1 etc.

When I do it though it compares everything to A1 (formula in the Conditional Formating is =\$A\$1 and it won't let me remove the \$'s). It looks to me like I can't do it and have to add the formatting to every cell indiviually (which is quite a lot).

## Copying Conditional Formatting Formulas To Multiple Cells?

Jul 9, 2013

I have applied conditional formatting to a cell using formulas and i want to copy that formatting to a new cell using similar formula but pointing to different cells. Is it possible to do so? I have tried to copy and paste special>formats, but that just copies the conditional formatting with the same formulas.

Sample: =IF(\$C\$5/\$C\$295>\$R\$5,TRUE,FALSE)

I want to copy to \$D\$5/\$D\$295>\$R\$5,TRUE,FALSE) without having to paste the new formula in each time.

## Excel Live Calendar Conditional Formatting With Multiple Cells In Column

Jul 15, 2013

I have designed a live calendar and am trying to highlight selected dates from a column in the calendar. I am able to select single cell in the column and highlight the date in the calendar, But am unable to select multiple dates in the column and highlight multiple dates in the calendar using conditional formatting.

Eg: calender dates are from B5:H9 and multiple dates are in column J10:J13

J column
--------
J10 7/10/2013
J11 7/20/2013

## Conditional Formatting - Colouring Percentage Of Multiple Cells Based On Date Range

Mar 12, 2014

I am trying to get a row of cells to highlight a percentage based on a date range

Below is an example of what my spreadsheet will look like, very simple for managers to read and understand but I am stuck on how i can get this to display the right way.

In the example i would need the Jan column to colour for a certain percent for 21 days and continue to feb for 26 days. Im not sure if this makes sense but this is what they are asking for. Colour bars to simple show the percent of days off each month.

Name Start Date End Date Jan Feb Mar

Dale 11/01/14 26/02/14 21 days 26 days

I have attached the spreadsheet for an example : Book1.xlsxâ€Ž

## Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting And Adding Text To Cell Based On Multiple Cells

May 31, 2013

I'm using Excel 2007. I would prefer to stay away from the scripting side of the house if possible. This is basically a 3 day forcast weather chart. The top is the actual weather data, the bottom portion is a color coded reflection of how the weather affects various things.

This product is created in excel, but will be embedded into a powerpoint. It will be updated daily. Here is what I would like. I want the color chart at the bottom to update automatically based on the data I enter above. I have a grasp that I can update the color through conditional formatting, although im not exactly sure what that will look like with all of those cells.

I also figured out that I can insert the letters in those lower cells with something similar to " =IF(C6>90, "T", "") " which would put in a 'T' for Temperature when the temperature got above a certain degree.

I run into a problem when I have multiple factors affecting a single cell. For instance on the example in day 2 of my image. Personnel are affected by Temperate AND UV Index. How would I set up that cell to pull that information from both of those cells and display it accordingly? I would prefer the letters to stay separated by the comma, but I could live without that. The default cell color will be green, with the potential to be yellow or red. I left a few examples of possible situations on day 2 and 3.

## Conditional Formatting Across 7 Sheets

Apr 26, 2012

I have an excel workbook that is tracking parking spaces in seven different garages. When we run out of space in one, we move to the next garage, however it is tandem(double) parking so I have to make sure I match up roommates. In Column F on all sheets, I have an apt identifier. How do I apply conditional formatting for all of the sheets so that if/when the apt identifier is entered twice, then it turns bold.

For example:

Sheet1

Column F
AB1
AB5
AB10

Sheet 2

Column F
BC3
BC4
AB1 - this would turn bold when I entered it into the cell because it matches another cell and it would turn bold on Sheet 1 too.

The entries are non-consecutive, so there are blanks within the column.

I have Excel 2007 and can use vba. I can add columns after column M.

## Apply Conditional Formatting Once Across 168 Sheets

Jul 3, 2014

I have a workbook that contains 168 sheets of data (it's an extract from a PM tool) which is effectively a status report from each project in our portfolio. Contained within each status report are some financial data that shows a Plan number and a Forecast number for which I want to apply conditional formatting to this section (this is the same section for each sheet), to all the 168 sheets without having to go individually into each sheet. I have searched here and all the varying responses to a similar situation as mine, do not cater for the number of sheets that I have. And I need to do this on a monthly basis at monthend. So in the example below I want to apply conditional formatting if the Forecast (Cols D & G) are greater than Plan (Cols B & E). Is there a way of doing this just with the conditional formatting or would it need a VBA script?

Col A Col B Col C Col D Col E Col F Col G
Financial Summary - Selected Project Currency: USD

Current year total cost
Overall project cost

## Hiding Sheets Using Conditional Formatting?

Aug 7, 2014

i have a list of services with "yes" or "no" options in the column beside it. Description for each service is given on separate sheets (Workbook sheet 1, Workbook sheet 2..etc). i want to format it in a way that if i choose "no" for one of the services, its description sheet hides.

## Conditional Formatting - Two Different Fields Affect One Cells Formatting For Date?

Sep 16, 2013

A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.

## Conditional Formatting Across Multiple Spreadsheets?

Jun 5, 2014

I'm trying to set up conditional formatting to show when an employee is both scheduled to be working for the current date, and is trained in a particular task.

I have a spreadsheet called "Training" for all of the tasks that employees can be trained in, with the employee names in each row, and the task names at the top of each column. The intersection of an employee's row with a task's column will have an "X" if the employee is trained in the task. This is the spreadsheet that I'd like to be formatted; if the employee is trained and also scheduled to be working, I'd like to the "X" to change to a different color.

There are separate spreadsheets within the same workbook for the schedule. This is a bit more complex since the since each week of the schedule has its own spreadsheet within the workbook; each spreadsheet is named for the Saturday of the week it is for, such as "06-07". I've been able to successfully have other formulas in the workbook auto-adjust to the current week's schedule by using variations on the TODAY function (something like INDIRECT("'"&(TEXT(TODAY()-MOD(WEEKDAY(TODAY(),1),7),"mm-dd"))), but I'm not sure how to incorporate this into conditional formatting. On each schedule sheet, there is a column for each day of the week and a row for each employee. The cell for a given day will contain the employee's schedule if they are scheduled, or it will be blank if they are not scheduled. So, the conditional formatting formula would just need to check to see if the appropriate cell was blank or not.

## Conditional Formatting For Multiple Rows

Jul 8, 2009

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.

## Conditional Formatting With Multiple References

Jul 18, 2014

I am working in a receiving room at a condo complex and am trying to facilitate how we handle and distribute the packages.

What I have in the first sheet of my would-be file is the unit numbers in a 28X12 array (12 units on 28 floors). I would like to make the array conditionally formatted to be highlighted in red to show that there is a package in for the unit in question. On the next sheet, I am putting information such as carrier, unit number and tracking number for each of the packages we receive. I want the unit number on the first sheet to immediately be red when the unit number is typed in the second sheet. When doing conditional formatting, it is easy to do this, by making the condition that the unit in the array will be highlighted when the unit is seen in the unit column in the second sheet.

My question is this: is it possible to somehow duplicate the references for the entire column that contains the unit numbers. I want a whole column to be the reference for conditional formatting of an array, so that I would be easily able to see who has a package in the receiving room, and who does not.

## Multiple Conditional Formatting On Text

Aug 7, 2006

I need to employ conditional formatting to text on a spreadsheet - but using more than the 3 colours provided from the Format>Conditional Formatting menu.

I recently purchased the ‘Excel Hacks’ (100 Industrial-Strength Tips & Tools) book by David & Raina Hawley, Hack #92 details how to get around Excel’s 3-criteria limit for conditional formatting using VBA, but this solution only describes multiple formatting on numbers, not text. For example, if each letter of the alphabet were entered into separate cells, I would like each to appear in a different colour automatically.

## Formatting On Multiple Sheets

Feb 14, 2007

I have a spreadsheet with X number of tabs. I'd like a macro to look at all rows in the sheet and

1. If the word RED appears in column B (as in REDCAR, or HATRED), make that row A:AA Red

2. If the word BLUE appears in column B (as in BLUEBIKE, or CHINABLUE), make that row A:AA Blue

3. Next Row

4. When all rows are done, Next Sheet.

I've been able to do some parts, but the end result is definitly NOT what I was hoping for!
