Conditional Formatting Of Range Of Variable Length

Apr 30, 2009

I have an issue regarding use of conditional formatting where the range i wish to format is on variable length.

For example; lets say i want to format F15 downwards depending on there being a value in the cell, how could I do that ?

Lets say I want the cell to turn GREY if number is 0, RED if the number is below 85, GREEN if above 95 and AMBER otherwise.

How could I do that ?
Any how could i ensure it picks all rows in the range where numbers have been added

Macro To Add Conditional Formatting To Variable Range

Jun 16, 2008

I have 2 columns 'C' and 'D' which I want to apply Conditional Formatting to (i.e. colour the background of the cell in column 'D' for the respective row in colum 'C') if they contain different values. I have the following

Sub CellCCondFormatting()
Dim j As Long
j = Range("C2"). CurrentRegion.Rows.Count
MsgBox ("1st: " & j)
Range("C2:C" & j).FormatConditions.Delete
Range("C2:C" & j).FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlCellValue, Operator:=xlGreater, _
Formula1:="=D" & j
Range("C2:C" & j).FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 3
Range("C2:C" & j).FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlCellValue, Operator:=xlLess, _
Formula1:="=D" & j
Range("C2:C" & j).FormatConditions(2).Interior.ColorIndex = 4
MsgBox ("2nd pass: " & j)
End Sub

It iterates through all rows in my CurrentRegion OK but the Conditional Formatting 'formula' operates on the wrong value in column 'D'. For example, when viewed via menu option Format > Conditional Formatting... row 2 column 'D's Conditional Formatting value is D1714, row 3 column 'D's value is 'D1715' and so on....................

Macro To Add Conditional Formatting Code To Variable Range

Jun 12, 2008

I am working with a large report that needs to be broken out and sent as separate files to recipients for confidentiality purposes. I'd rather not use views/protection since there are many different ways particular people need to see the data, plus it is a very large file and flattening it works to everyone's advantage. My goal is a macro that will copy each tab into separate workbooks, paste special values, and save as each as Cell A1 (or the tab name-same thing). I have tried recording macros and editing (I'm very new to VBA) many times but it's a mess.

Naming A Range Of Variable Length

Feb 5, 2007

I have a range of data starting in C18, C17 is a label (DivsUsed) the number of rows can range from 1 to a few hundred.

I used the code below to name C18 onwards as a named range with the name DivsUsed and then to use this as a RowSource for a ListBox.

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()

Dim rangeToName As Range
'Sheet2.Range("C18", Range("C65536").End(xlUp)).Name = "DivsUsed" Tried this too
Set rangeToName = Sheet2.Range("C17", Range("C65536").End(xlUp))
rangeToName.CreateNames Top:=True
ListBox2.RowSource = "DivsUsed"
TextBox2.Value = Sheet2.Range("F2").Value 'This works ok
End Sub

Both tries, and anything else I have tried, give the error " Method 'Range' of object _Worksheet failed".

Extract Strings From Range Of Variable Length Text

Jan 18, 2008

I have the following issue. I have a list of strings. Each string contains certain characters that are exactly the same for all strings, some characters are different making the string longer (in some cases). What I need to do is extract some combination of characters from each string. The strings look like this:

AB & CDE & FG & I mmmm yyyy.HIJK
AB & CDE & FG & II mmmm yyyy.HIJK

The part "AB & CDE & FG & " (incl. spaces) is the same for each string. The next part contains a roman count from I to VII, causing the length of each string to vary. The "mmmm" part contains the current month spelled in full e.g. December. This part differs as well, for each string. The "yyyy" part contains the year in four digits, e.g. 2007. The part after the dot is the same for each string again.

What I need to do:
- is to extract the month and assign it to a new string
- extract the year and assign it to a new string
- extract the roman number, translate it to a normal number (II -> 2) and assign to a string (or integer).

Give Cell A Value Based On Length Of Row (variable Row Length)

Jan 9, 2010

My worksheet contains data with the reaction times on a psychological test. Each respondent in the test has 280 rows in my excel sheet.

The 'perfect' length of the row, is from A to M. When an error is made in the test, the length of the row will increase. So the error length can be A to AA.

For me it is important to analyse the error. So I would like to give a perfect row length, the value 1, and an error row length a value 2.

So, in conclusion:

Cell length = A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B Cof that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 1

Cell length >= A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B C of that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 2

Using Text Variable For Conditional Formatting

Mar 11, 2014

I'm trying to reverse engineer a spreadsheet (see attached) and apply the data table to my own spreadsheet. The inspiration spreadsheet (attached) utilizes a 2 variable data table and conditional formatting, where the cells are formatted based on their value in relation to a variable called "Gross". So the rules look something like this:

Cell Value Between 0 and Gross-1
Cell Value > Gross
Cell Value = Gross
Cell Value < 0
Graded Color Scale Minimum ="<385000" Maximum =">385000"

I assume the Gross is calculated as 25% * 350,000 = 87,500. The hard coded value of 385000 is actually incorrect, because it's based on a percentage of 10%... but I'll let that slide The resulting formatting of the data table would support the hypothesis that "Gross" = 87,500. However, when I reset the Conditional Formatting to reference another cell with the calculation result of 87,500 it completely throws off the formatting. I'm simply stumped as to how they are using the text "Gross" as a variable. How/where are such variables set so they can be used in conditional formatting?

How to apply the data table logic itself to another spreadsheet.

Conditional Formatting, Variable Text

Mar 1, 2010

I can't figure out how to set up conditional formatting to let me know if the value of a text cell is NOT X or Y. In other words, the only appropriate responses are X or Y (or Y or N or whatever the case may be) and if it's NOT one of those two letters, I want to apply conditional
formatting. Also, will it accept either upper or lower case (I'm fine with it either way).

Using the following conditional formatting formulas:

=(isblank(p99)) then the formatting of (applies to) C99:O99 will be in red and bold

=(d99="Prod.") then the formatting of C99:P99 will be blue and bold

but the results are not as expected. Is something wrong with these formulas?

Sum Of Variable Length Ranges?

Jun 20, 2014

So I have got an identifier and a corresponding column of values. I need to calculate sum of those corresponding values for each identifier, so if identifier is 1993, I need to have a sum of all the corresponding values. These identifiers repeat, and I do not want to calculate sum for all of them, just the immediate identifiers (i.e. you have 1993, after that you may have 1994 etc etc and then at one point you will have 1993 again, but that "new" 1993 will have a different sum of course). Also, identifiers do not go in sequence sometimes (however, most of the case they do), for example 1993 may jump suddenly to 2004. The trick with all of this is variable "row width" of these identifiers...

Conditional Formatting: Compare Range To Another Range

Oct 11, 2006

I was looking to use the VBA conditional formatting script posted on OzGrid and was curious if it would be easy to make some slight modifications.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A10")) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Target
Case 1 To 5
icolor = 6
Case 6 To 10
icolor = 12
Case 11 To 15
icolor = 7
Case 16 To 20 ..........................

I can see that Case is the number range referenced to change the background...However, would it be possible to have it read a cells value as the criteria for the color change? Currently, I would like it to reference values in range I2:M2 and anything matching those cells in range A4:E28 change background to icolor = 30. I'm just not sure what to replace Case with to make it refence cells I2:M2

Conditional Formatting Using Named Range

Aug 15, 2014

I have a sheet called Quote Summary and a sheet called AssemblyBoms.

In the Bom sheet, I have a named range for QtyPer and a named range for unit price because these ranges are dynamic.

On the quote summary sheet, I want to format the cell (A9 and eventually A9 to A28 and so on), which contains a formula right now that only references a tag and does some equivalence checking


to have a yellow background if QtyPer>0 but unit price = "" or 0. I know the formulas for this, but it is not formatting anything. Attached workbook below.


Conditional Formula for true:
="AND(qtyper1 > 0, unita1 = "")"

I typed it in without the = or "", but the formatting added those in for me.

I typed a number in the qtyper1 range and left the unita1 range blank to test it and no formatting has occurred.

Conditional Formatting With A Moving Range

Jan 17, 2010

I have a Conditional Formatting query where in essence I am needing to ‘make invisible’ a range of data by changing the font and background fill to white (and at the same time nullifying the effects of a number of other Conditional Formats). On the surface, this seems an easy thing to achieve, but the problem is, the range I need to apply this CF is a moving range and is dependant on a user changeable date.

Description of worksheet:

The sheet is managing shifts worked over 1 year by 21 people. The top 33 rows are a frozen (and collapsing) display area below which is a matrix of 365 days down and 21 people across. The TODAY button uses a macro to scan the dates and display todays entry directly beneath the freeze line of row 33. The date in M28 can be entered manually and after hitting enter, that dates data is now displayed under the freeze line. Also, using the spin button will increment or decrement the date in M28 moving the entire matrix up or down.

My query..........

What I’m hoping to achieve, is to display ONLY the data selected by the date in M28 (ie that shown under the freeze line, and for all remaining rows to be ‘whited out’, but as the user increments/decrements M28, then the “whiteout” range also needs to increment/decrement. I have whited out a second worksheet “example” as if I had selected 18 Jan (this sheet will not move as there are no buttons, but the data is still there under the whiteout).

I hope this is not TOO unclear, but I would be grateful if anyone could suggest a solution or even tell me if this is not possible – or indeed any other way of achieving the same result ( I had thought of hiding the rows below the freeze line, but the freeze/unfreeze operation would probably be too jerky.

Use Conditional Formatting On Range Of Cells?

Jan 23, 2013

What I am trying to do, is apply conditional formatting to a range of cells (for example, A2:J2) based on whether the data in one of the cells (D2) contains "Yes" or "No". I would like the entire range of cells to be one color if D2 contains "Yes", and another color if D2 contains "No". If needed, this can be split into 2 different conditional formatting rules.

Conditional Formatting From Given Cell Range

I have a range of data on sheet1 say A1:A10 with random letters in each cell. On sheet2, I also have random letters and number in column A. What am trying to do is find a formula which if any of the data on sheet1 can be found in say A1 of sheet2 then shade the cell a given colour or if formula in B2 then show True otherwise false if not found. then do the same for the remainder of the cells on sheet2 which am assuming will be to just copy the formula in B1 of sheet2 or the conditional format in A1 whichever comes first.

Conditional Formatting Range Of Cells?

May 19, 2014

I am wondering if there is a quicker way to set up conditional formatting for a range of cells. In my projects, I have a range of cells N7:U16, where each row (7-16) would need to have a cell formatted based on a value in the cell adjacent to the range. I.e. the cell in range for row N7:U7 needs to be formatted based on the value in V7, and so on down for for rows 7 thru 16. Said another way, if the cell in the row range between n7:u7 = v7, then the cell in the range is uniquely formatted.

But I want to apply this logic all at once, instead of having to conditional format each row individual. The trick is that the cell with the value that I am comparing to is variable (i.e. V7:V16), but does correspond with the row I am comparing it to.
