I have conditionally formatted (Bold Italic) some data (the highest value in each column) and I have a macro that hides rows dependent on one value in that row. However I would like the conditional formatting to apply only to the visible cells, so that if the maximum value is in a row that is hidden the conditional formatting is applied to the highest, non-hidden value.
I have tried to set up a list of cells to highlight in red any numerical values which are greater than 0 using conditional formatting. This works fine, except that all blank cells are also highlighted in red. Formula is currently: cell value is greater than 0. What do I need to do to ignore the empty cells?
I am working on the monthly duty roster that is attached. I have the cells at the bottom configured to total how many early shifts, late shifts and off days each Trooper has. My problem is that I often need to add text to show what type of leave is being taken, or numbers to correspond to the special notes section numbered 1-24, and so on.
Is there any way to use conditional formatting to do this so that the totals at the bottom still sum correctly? Badge numbers are used to identify each Trooper. I have included them at the top for reference. The reason that I referenced them to total by cell instead of individual badge numbers is that I am attempting to format this so that any badge numbers can be entered at the top. This form will be used by other groups of Troopers if I can get it to work.
I have a formula to search a sheet for certain criteria and sum up the total, data is entered into this sheet by week number, where I then filter it for whichever week I need. I following formula works fine, but adds all the cells including hidden ones, how can i get it to ignore hidden cells??
=SUM(IF('FT Line 1-RX'!$C$2:$C$2100='FT costs 1-Rx'!B$1,IF('FT Line 1-RX'!$E$1:$GT$1='FT costs 1-Rx'!$A11,'FT Line 1-RX'!$E$2:$GT$2100)))
There is raw data in the 'FT Line 1-RX' sheet which is summed up in the 'FT costs 1-RX' sheet.
I'd like to compare two columns of data and highlight where a value doesn't occurr in both columns. The problem I have is that one of the columns uses * around the text to ensure it catches all variations of the value.
I have the following formula which would work if the data was exactly the same.
However, these *'s are meaning it never works.
Is there a way to make it so that if the values with the *'s are not found in the 1st column of data, conditional formatting is activated?
I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.
I'd like to give a conditional format to a range of cells so that only one cell in the range has a gray background. The condition must include three criteria: 1) The cell cannot be blank, AND 2) The cell's value must be the minimum in the range, AND 3) The cell's value must not equal any value preceding it in the range.
My own attempt looks like this for cell J8 in the range C8:AF8: =AND(NOT(ISBLANK(J8)),J8=MIN($C8:$AF8),J8$C8:I8)
Problem: This condition works great for all values entered EXCEPT ZERO. When J8 is the first zero in the range, if it is preceded by a blank cell anywhere else in the range, it fails the third criterion (J8$C8:I8) because Excel treats the blank cell as though it's a zero. Result: no gray background.
Is there a way to keep the Sum Funtion from adding in the values from Rows you have hidden? I want my total to be the result of only the visible lines, but have reasons for hiding rather than deleting rows (I may have to unhide some later depending on other factors)
The problem I am having is that the sumproduct and offset funtions used to ignore hidden rows are considered "volatile" and force a recalculation. Moreover, I have this fomula pasted 100+ times and this dramatically slows things down even when I turn autocalculate off. Is there another way to accomplish a sumif with a user defined custom function in VB? I really need to have the ability to do a sumif that ignores hidden rows and is not dramatically slow.
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.
I need to run a loop through a column of values (attachment col B) and when it finds a "J" it will apply conditional formatting to a row of 4 cells directly adjacent. The attachment is a theoretical before & after.
I am trying to format all cells on all sheets (hidden or otherwise) as "Locked" so when the sheets are protected the user can't see the formulas. This macro individually selects every sheet in the book and applys the formatting. Is there a way to modify this code to accomplish the same thing without having it actually select every sheet? The only reason it is an issue is that after running the macro you end up on the last sheet in the book.
Working in Excel 2007. I am using excel for a data log (basically) and want it to format all empty cells in a row yellow if there is data in column A
Basically, If i have a value in A2, I want any empty cell between B2-G2 to be filled in yellow (as an idicator to the inputter that the cell needs to be completed).
there is already conditional formatting on these cells, which i want to maintain for the non-empty cells. I also have "0" as a value, so I couldn't use the basic conditional formatting setting it =0, it highlighted cells with $0.00, which i do not want.
I want to add some colour conditional formatting to the cells in column C, dependent on their variance to the figure in column B. I've got the basic gist of applying the rule to the one single cell, but I'm not sure how to apply it to all the cells in the column. I have tried "dragging" it down, but it then just gives me the variance to the original row.
I'm using conditional formatting where one column of cells is referencing another column of cells. For example, I want cell K2 to highlight if the date entered doesn't match the date in F2. I then want cell K3 to highlight if the date entered doesn't match the date in F3. I want cell K4 to highlight if the date entered doesn't match the date in F4 and so on. I'm not having any issue putting conditional formatting on the cells/row references individually, but when I try to copy the formatting (by using format painter) to save time all of the cells in column K just reference the first cell in column F since the first cell in column K references that F cell but not any other F cell. How do I copy these row by row references between columns so that each reference is unique?
I have a worksheet which has the years 2001 to 2013 on in row1. I am trying to find a way of highlighting the entire row in green if a specific year contains an "a" (Marlett, tick). The complex part is that I would like the specific year to be determined by an entry input into cell A2 on sheet 2. See Attachment for reference.
I am conditional formatting with fill colour based on specific text- the cells are merged down into a double cell- when the cell changes colour it goes half one colour and half another colour based on the order i have them in the rules- i only have them set to one colour per specific text and the text is all different- so why am i getting this half and half look?
Is it possible to apply conditional formating just on visible filtered cells? If I select (with Ctrl+Shift+Down) all visible (by filter) cells the Rules defined in Conditional formating will also apply to hidden (by filter) cells?
