# Conditional Formatting Using The IF Statment

Jun 8, 2006

I have a list of codes. Some of them may be duplicated. I want to use the conditional formatting and the IF statement to highlight in a particular colour any codes that have appear twice or more. I used to know how to do this but now I cannot get it right.

## Conditional I Think If Statment Maybe More

Jan 19, 2009

Ok ive been playing about with excel for the past week to get a spreadsheep up and running so i can see the totals of some things and now its getting a little complecated for me (ive done the easy stuff lol)

Ok here is the situation and i'll try and explain what im doing as best as i can. Im trying to make a spreadsheet that shows how much a resorce can be refined so lets say in a1 to c1 i have 400 in each but i can mix a with b and b with c at the ratio of every 20 of a and c to ever 10 of b

so somewhere in my spread sheet id have the result 20 and 20 as products ato c can make 20 of product d and e i hope that makes sence?

for every 20 + 10 of a(400)+b(400) = 20
and for every 20 + 10 of c(400)+b(400) = 20

so if i had 600 300 600 instead of 400 i can only make 30 of product d of e (id have to choose)

## 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 Based On Another Cell Conditional Format

Mar 20, 2013

Is it possible to change the format of cell AI3 based on the format of cell C3 and D3? I have C3 and D3 set to turn red based on what is in cell C2 and D2. I would like the following done:

If AI3=C3 & C3 is red, format AI3 blue
If AI3=D3 & D3 is red, format AI3 blue
Otherwise, leave AI3 unformatted.

Possible???

## IF Statement Using Formatting Criteria (NOT Conditional Formatting)

May 5, 2009

Is there "code" for different formatting in a spreadsheet so you can use an IF statement to do something like:

if(A1=blue background,"Yes","No")

or

if(A1=red text,"Yes","No")

etc.?? But replace "blue background" and "red text" with some sort of number code? I want to compile a list of the items that are formatted with certain background colors and/or text colors and then organize only those items into a chart.

## Putting 2 Conditions In IF Statment

Jul 16, 2008

I would like to check whether 2 conditions are satisfy in an if statement. One condition is of data type text and it is stored in a variable calls search1 whereas the other condition is of data type date and i intend to store into a variable calls search2. Could someone tell how to put search 2 into the below code. Basically, i want it to be like

if Cell A is equal to search1 and CellB is equal to search2 then

return value that is associated with the search in cell c

ActiveSheet.Cells(r, 13).FormulaArray = "=MIN(IF(Sheet1!\$A\$1:\$A\$20=""" & search1& """,Sheet1!\$C\$1:\$C\$20))"

## Slow For Loop With IF Statment

Nov 23, 2009

why the code below is very slow with the extra if statment in it (marked with **) i have googled around and found that my for staments are correct i have tried screen updating etc. i have added a timer to see what diffrence it makes, what i have is 3 sheets 1st has about 100 rows with a number and time same as second but that only has 2 rows of the same the 3rd sheet has about 100 rows of just a number what the code does is loop through the 3rd sheet (build list) when it finds a number it looks on the first sheet to find the same number then gets the data in the second coloum and so on until it reaches a cell that says stop.

i have added a button to start this process, with the ** line in it takes 311 seconds with out it it takes 0.17 seconds

## Looping & Conditional Format: Finds A "J" It Will Apply Conditional Formatting To A Row Of 4 Cells Directly Adjacent?

## Using A IF / IFELSE Statment To Change A Cells Format

Jan 11, 2009

I have been trying to get a formatting programme to work for well over a week and no matter what I try I seem destined to fail. I am trying to use an IF statement in VBA to format a cell if the result of the IF is true. The values in the cells being formatted have been generated from a VLOOKUP statment (looking at a table on another sheet of the workbook). I have tried to use conditional formatting but cannot get past the limit of 3 conditions.

Note in the code below I have values that may appear the same but to make them unique they have a single (or double) space before and after the character. Not sure if the code I have below is workable, if anyone has a better idea please let me know (its a little long winded). I am currently self learning VBA (through forums and the like) and below is the best I have come up with... however when I try to run it I only get a Run-time error 1004, application-defined or object defined error.

## If Then Or Conditional Formatting??

Mar 5, 2009

I have a hard time when it comes to "If then" statements and conditional formatting. I have some data that I am collecting and entering into a spreadsheet for a couple different companies. Once I receive paperwork from those companies for the data collected I mark the data with a blue colored text. I would like to have a second sheet that generates what companies have not sent me their paperwork. "If the data is black text, then generate <name of company> on second sheet." The list is small right now, but as the project continues it will grow very large and it will become difficult to track. I will attach a copy of the spreadsheet for you to see the situation. I would like to learn how to do these types of formulas, is there a tutorial geared towards these types of situations?

## Conditional Formatting More Than Once

Feb 3, 2010

I have two spreadsheet "book1" with data in it, "book2" that takes all the information from "book1" the cells are linked in "book2" from "book1" so when someone updates "book1" the information is viewable in "book2"

In "book2" where I am getting stuck is as follows,

Column A contains data "break time" that is formatted in HH:MM:SS column B contains a "total duration" in HH:MM:SS. what I need to do is if column A data is = to or more than 4% of column B then I want to turn the cell in column A "red" if it is less then turn it "green". I have tried conditional formatting and it appears to work the once only, I dont no if this is because its 2003 and not 2007??

What I need is to repeat the conditional format over and over again forever is there any code for this I can use?

## Conditional Formatting To Get Rid Of #DIV/0!

Jun 11, 2008

I have my formulas in place and they are working. The reason why some are coming up with #DIV/0 is because I do not have the data to complete the calculation.

Is there a way to make the #DIV/0 error go away until I imput the data to complete the calculation? I was thinking there might be a way to do it with conditional formatting.

## Conditional Formatting Through VBA

Jun 30, 2008

Sub Macro1()
With Range("A1")
.FormatConditions.Delete
.FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 3
.FormatConditions(2).Interior.ColorIndex = 50
.AutoFill Destination:=Range("A1:A29"), Type:=xlFillDefault
End With
End Sub

If my active cell is NOT A1, the formula entered into conditional formatting is off. The range references get all messed up. For example, if my active cell is Say D5

Condition 1 is
=IT65533=IU65533
Condition 2 is
=IT65533IU65533

But if I run the code with A1 as my active cell, it gets entered correctly as
Condition 1
=A1=B1
Condition 2
=A1B1

## Set Conditional Formatting Via VBA

Jul 18, 2008

I would like to add conditional formatting for the whole row based on whether the value of cells in column A is "CON".

For Each c In r
If c.Value = "CON" Then
c.EntireRow.FormatConditions.Delete
c.EntireRow.FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 35
end if
next c
the "CON" is a formula and can later take the value "OK".

The conditional formatting should highlight the whole row as green when that happens.

## Conditional Formatting / VBA

Feb 25, 2009

I am not sure if this requires conditional formatting/vba function

If I enter something in cell A1 and leave blank in cell c1, in cell c1 it should print the message "Required Entry, Please Fill up". and this condition should be applied to entire column, where ever in column A there is some values and column c is empty this condition should apply.
