Is there "code" for different formatting in a spreadsheet so you can use an IF statement to do something like:
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.
I wish to use a formula to highlight a date based on two criteria in two separate columns;
The first is the Date that will be in Column B.
I want it to highlight the date if : Today() is greater than that date in the cell plus 5 years (or 1824 days)
The second criteria I want is for the date to be only highlighted if the corresponding cell (in column A) does NOT contain the term ("Basic")
I have the formula:
which highlights the date correctly IF the term in Column A is "Basic" : But I cannot figure out how to insert the NOT statement to make the formula flip around so it only highlights those dates older than the 5 years requirement and NOT contain the "Basic" in column A.
I have several rows with data in and what I would like would be to total the amount of time "CU" is displayed and if that number is less than say 10 the formatting is applied. I need if possible to be able to do this via the one condition.
Can you do a IF statement in Conditional Formatting? I need a column to highlight Red if there is a blank in it based on the current time COMPARED to the stated time in another column (on a separate tab)
So if current time is 1:30 PM and the stated (appointment) time on the other sheet is 1:15 PM, and my control field is still blank, I need it to turn Red.
Set MyRange = Range("A1:AZ9615") ' Range to apply format to
For Each Item In MyRange Select Case Item.Value Case "1780", "1800", "1810", "2050", "6170" Item.Font.ColorIndex = 3 'x = 3 Case Else x = xlNone End Select Item.Rows.Interior.ColorIndex = x
I want it to search that range and turn those Numbers in Quotes to Red, which it works fine, but Somtimes those numbers are Imbedded in a string excample "1810-1-DAV". So my Question is When It turns my normal numbers red, how can I get it to turn the STRING RED ALSO?
I am trying to eliminate the use of formulas for conditional formatting in my code. I heard that the CASE statement might work for this. Below is the code I have but the case does not like the second case statement.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range(("S2:V" & TTRows), ("W2:W" & TTRows))) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Target
Case Is >= 0.8 icolor = 3 Case is >= 0.7 and not >= 0.8 icolor = 6 Case Else icolor = 0 End Select
I am building a template for a report. The report resides on the first sheet of the workbook and the subsequent sheets is where the user would paste the appropriate reports so that the formulas on the first sheet can pull the appropriate data. I have all my formulas working fine with one exception.
The data in question needs to be pulled from the sheet "Paste Adcap Report Here" and the column is AA. The common piece of data between the two sheets is in column C of the Adcap sheet and column B of the main report sheet. What I need to do is conduct a vlookup between the report sheet and the Adcap sheet using the account id's and then return either the date value in row AA or the word ongoing which would be those accounts which do not have a preset end date. So far a co-worker had been able to come up with the following:
The code is a bit screwy as she had to leave early. The problem we encountered was the entry in column AA for a non-ending campaign. It is represented by two hypens (--). This is what tied her up. we could not figure out why the formula was returning an #n/a instead of the term "ongoing" when it encountered the (--). Again, if the formula pulls a (--) then the word "ongoing" needs to be displayed and if the formula pulls an actual date value then it needs to display this date.
Conditional formatting. I have been tasked with creating a simple game for a group training project.
The game consists of users filling in the answers to questions (simple one word text answers). My boss wants to have a master sheet with the correct answers, and a subsequent sheet that will then compare the employee's answer to the master sheet. If the employee's answer is correct, then the output sheet simply displays the correct answer, however, if the employee's answer is wrong, he would like the output to display the correct answer and highlight the cell.
Is there a way to have the output sheet highlight a cell only when the answer on the employee sheet is different from the master sheet? I was thinking along the lines of using an if statement to see if the values of the employee sheet differ from the master sheet, but I do not know how I would then use that result to highlight the cells in the output sheet.
I have several worksheets in a workbook that has dates of completion of various training topics. Some of these topics require annual (12 months), bi-annual (24 month), 6-month, or even 2-month re-training.
What I am trying to accomplish is to automatically shade all cells for dates that fall within one month of these periodicities based on the computer's clock when a workbook is opened. Unfortunately different columns have different periodicities so what I was planning on doing was putting that monthly number in a cell ("12" in A1000, for example for all Column A values). When the file is opened, if any of the dates in column A are more than 11 months from today's date (A1000 minus 1), they are within one month of needing to be re-trained and I want the cell shading to be a light yellow.
Cell BM22 is a percentage calculation of the differences between two different days of volume for this stock and that formula is: =(BH22/BH25)-1 Cell BM22 currently is calculating the result to be -65.65%
When I set up a CLASSIC Conditional Formatting using a formula (="If($BJ$20=""SELL""") to check the if the text in cells BK10 match the text displayed in cell BJ20 - I get no error messages and no formatting?
I am using Mac Office Excel 2011. I feel like I have tried everything including changing the Number selection type of the cells to TEXT. Nothing seems to works.
I have a column containing 8760 item (365*24), I divided them into days, one column for each day, modifying a macro I found here. Now I want to conditionally format these columns in themselves with color scales. But if I select 365 columns at the same time and do it, it takes the highest and lowest of all the numbers and format. I want it to format each column using the highest and lowest values in itself. How do I do this without selecting every column one by one and turning conditional formatting on manually?
I've copied a sample of my worksheet below (there are 52 of these in my workbook). i'd like excel to place conditional formatting in column M (i.e. "Promo Proice Per Unit"). So that if the price is different to the price in column L (i.e. "Shelf Price Per Unit") then excel will apply conditional formatting to the corresponding cell in column M.
So for example, in row 10 (product 5) the promo price (column M) is different to the shelf price (column L). It'd be great if excel wold then automatically format that cell as the example in the below table (i did the formatting manually).
When i tried to do this using the format/conditional formatting way i couldnt figure out how to tell excel what to do as its a little more advanced than the options that it gives you in that window?
I want a to include conditional formatting for Column D in my spreadsheet to highlight cells that have information in them but that are less than 17 digits. (The cell will be filled with alpha & numeric data)
If a cell in Column F = Closed Then, the entire row is filled green. If a cell in Column F = Open Then, the entire row is red with a strike through. I'm guessing this is simple, but I can only conditionally format on a cell-by-cell basis right now
I have columns M to X labeled Jan to Dec. I want to highlight in yellow values in the row M7 to X7 if they are greater than 2000!
Then, I need to copy this conditional formatting down the columns under M to X, but under column H the values will be different, but I still want the same results, values greater than the value under column H then highlight in yellow.
I thought I had the answer but when I tried to copy down, it was making cells yellow that were clearly less than the column H value.
I have a query relating to conditional highlighting - specifically highlighting a cell's column and row based upon whether it contains data or not i.e. if it is blank, it's column and row remain unhighlighted, but when it contains data, it's column and row should become highlighted. I could probably manage this myself but I have a few more specific requirements which I have illustrated with a few screenshots, however I can't see how to make these available to view here!I
I have made a sample file with conditional formatting. The file contains 3 sheets which contain a number of orders. Conditional formatting is changing colour of the whole line depending on value in column C. The formatting contains reference to a certain cell in column C. It is very easy to make when the lists are so short: I make conditional formatting for line 2 with reference to cell C2, copy formats in the other 2 lines and change formula references to C3 and C4. However in the original spreadsheet there might be more than 5000 lines per sheet and it will be too time consuming to correct the formulas manually. Does anyone know how I can make a reference to column C without specifying each particular cell?
I have a spreadsheet where column H can be either yes or no. When column H changes to Yes I want the background of the whole row to change to Red.
e.g. Cell H4 contains the word no. I then change this so that it says "yes". I want the background of row 4 to go red. so A4, b4, c4, d4, e4, h4 all go red.
With the type of conditional formatting i normally do i can only get cell H4 to go Red by putting cell value = yes as the condition. I cant for the life of me think of a formula or way round of doing this.
I want to have Excel highlight one or two numbers/cells in one column based on the value in another cell. I am attempting to do this using Conditional Formatting.
For example, if X1 is BETWEEN A2 and A3, I want to highlight A2 AND A3. I have used various AND and IF functions to achieve this goal.
Also, if X1 is EQUAL to A2, I want A2 to be highlighted. This is easy to do with a simple formula.
But my problem is this: if X1 is equal to A2, I want ONLY A2 highlighted. If X1 is between A2 and A3, I want BOTH A2 and A3 highlighted. I cannot figure out how to achieve both. For example, when X1 = A3, A2 AND A3 are being highlighted, instead of just A3. I would prefer to do this without a macro, if possible. Can this be done?
Example formulas I have tried which easily achieve the highlighting of two cells when the value is between them:
It appears that the +IF, etc. functions are not doing anything.
This is more complicated by the fact that the value of, in the above example, I35 is based on a value from another sheet (I used a function to transfer a value from one sheet to I35 in the other sheet). As data are entered on Sheet1, the value in I35 in Sheet2 changes.
I am putting together a worksheet with all my teams tasks. I have columns A:U and Status is column "M". What i want to do is when ever i select Complete from the list in Column "M" i want to the row to turn Green.
I tried the following:
Selected the Range From Conditional Formatting menu selected Manage rules Selected new rule then Use formula to determine which cells to format formula i used =$M$2=complete and selected green from the format menu
BUT nothing is happening. What am I doing wrong.
BTW the Values in Column are Complete,Development, Not Started Research, QA/UAT. If I can conditionally format based on these selections that would be even better.
I have a column of cells containing dates. I need to change the colour of any cell which is 7 days older than todays date. I would like to leave the header and any blank cells unchanged. Every formula I've tried has changed the enire column, or if I selected a range, the entire range.
I am totally new to Macros. I need a Macro which should format a column based on the value of another column.
Consider I have 10 rows. I have to format column D, based on the value of Column E. If the value of Column E is > 1000, then the background color of Column D should be changed as green. The most important requirement is Column E should be invisible, Changing the font color of Column E as White does not seem ok cuz when we select the sheet entirely using Ctrl+A, the white values are very much visible. Can this be achieved using a macro?
