Conditional Input In A Cell Based On Data In Two Different Cells And Other Values
Dec 4, 2009
I have lot of data in three columns like this. The first column is "Name", the second is "Comment" wherein I want the macro to write some comment, the third one is DOB. The problem is that the names in column 1 repeats many times. I want a macro to write in column B "either Old or Older or Oldest" based on the Name and DOB. Thus David with DOB 13 Sep 1982 be marked Oldest in Column B and David with DOB 25 Aug 1988 be marked Older and David with DOB 24 May 1990 be marked Old. Similarly William and Rita should be marked either old or older or oldest. As the data are enormous I do not want to refer the actual name in the programming. I want to call them using a variable in programming.
David 25 August 1988
David 13 September 1982
David 24 May 1990
William 24 March 1980
William 25 July 1987
William 13 August 1989
Rita 17 July 1990
Rita 24 April 1989
Rita 13 June 1988

I'm a average excel user, i know my way around it and kow common and basic formulee, VB isnt a strong point, but i am willing to attemp anything for this, let me explain
Lets say in colum A I have a list of items, in colum B i have a check box, currently the check box is red, if i tpye a x it turns green due to conditional formating. That works fine...onto the problem...
Lets say in colum A i have my items but they are repeated...eg A1, A145, A166, A122 are all the same item, what i want is regardless of where i place the x each check box under coloum B either gets a X and turns green, or just turns green, i dont mind...
I dont think conditional formatting can cut this, though i may be wrong. Ive tried to use the IF function under condtional formatting but ran into problems...
I want to tie the values of some cells on Sheet 2 to what's put in into corresponding cells on Sheet 1. Example
If Cell B3 on Sheet 1 has the string "B off" put in, Sheet 2 should automatically get "R1" in cell B12, "B off" in cell C12 and "ID123456" in cell D12. If cell B3 on Sheet 1 is empty, B12:D12 should be blank.
I want to create a macro that creates a new .xlsx document based on cell values. And input 4 tabs into each document with specified tab names. I have a document that pulls from external sources and fluctuates with amount of data per day. I envision something that will make a new document named for the contents in cell A1, then function as a control+down to create a new document for A2, then A3 until there is no content left (should mention these are lookup formulas, and if there is no data it pulls a value of "0")
Is there a way to put in the code, the tab names it would create in each new document, or would that have to look to a cell value for the naming? The tab names would be "GS", "MYSS", "COLL SHEET", and "WIRE".
I have a matrix in excel to show % and $ for multiple columns - set up like this:
Rows Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Criteria 1 % $ % $ % $ Criteria 2 Criteria 3
the $ columns are conditionally formatted to highlight the top 10 values on the matrix. is there a way to have the corresponding % cells also highlighted? The % and $ aren't both top 10, so the % would have to be highlighted based on the $ top 10 cells.
I am working on my spreadsheet and was wondering if anyone knows if cells can be Protected or Unprotected based on the value of another cell?
Here is what I am looking for:
If cell "A16" on the "Input Sheet" equals AR then Protect Cells J16, K16, L16, M16, N16, and O16
If the value of A16 on the Input Sheet DOES NOT equal AR then leave those cells unprotected.
Has anyone ever done anything like this? On my spreadsheet it would allow the user to skip the unnecessary cells as opposed to having to Tab through them. Not a big deal but definitely would be a time saver and a lot more user friendly.
If you have any questions or concerns just let me know. I will wait to see what the Excel Guru's come up with.
how to conditionally format the data in one table based on the criteria specified in another table on a different worksheet.
The Table I'm trying to format has a series of Products and Volumes that'll be available on different dates. Table 1.jpg
The Criteria table has each product and a corresponding Key Data. Table 2.jpg
All I want to be able to do is have the cell corresponding to the criteria to be highlighted but can't for the life of me figure out how to do it. If it makes a difference I'm working offAttachment 338501 a Mac. Excel Version 2011 14.4.3
I am trying to create a UserForm in Excel 2010 that will look for a part from our database (or on a specific Sheet, possibly a hidden sheet), then add specific data from that part's row into a new line.
I want to be able to input the Part #, and have it automatically add specified information to sheets 1 and 2 and those two differ. 1 is our Quote Sheet, and 2 is our bill of materials.
Also, I need each piece of information to go to a specific column (ex. Cost always goes to Column K)
What I have now is a broken UserForm that references a DOC file with a Table, but I need something a good but more complex.
Ideally, what I want is to have 4 ListBoxes where you choose Category --> SubCategory --> Make --> Model then have several CheckBoxes below that would determine whether to add a part (Cost, Labor, Weight).
The reason for this is because we have no need for the Cost or Labor Hours in our Bill of Materials, but need that information for our Quotes. And we generally don't need Specific Dimensions in our Quotes, but DO need them in the Bill of Materials...
Can I make it so that it will insert Pre-Specified information into both sheets at the same time?
I want to do conditional formatting based on two cell values.
i want to do conditional format the column 'R' based on clolumns 'J' and 'R'. column 'J' is a text column named PRIORITY which can hold the values P1,P2,P3 an P4. Column 'R' is nothing but difference of two columns 'M' and 'H'(both are time stamps).Column'R' is in below format. =TEXT(M4-H4,"h:mm:ss").
column M and H are in below format:
eg: 9/11/13 9:41 AM
Now i want to format the column'R' like if column J ="P2" and column 'R' > "00:10:00"(10 mins) =it should become red. if column J="P3" and column 'R'>"00:30:00"(30 mins) = it should become red.
Now the problem, Each client has a sheet in a workbook. In each sheet, I input the number of days of service available to that particular client in a single cell. We'll say cell [G8] is the cell used for this input in all sheets. If the client has 30 days of service available then we type  in cell [G8]. Each sheet is a 100 day template. I want to shade in dark grey and lock from input the days NOT available to the client based on the days of service input in cell [G8]. If 30 days of service are available in cell [G8] then the remaining 70 days on the 100 day template would be shaded dark grey and locked from input. That is, day 31 through day 100 of the template would be locked and shaded. Each individual day has multiple cells in a column. I want to lock and shade each column of cells in each day not available.
I want to enter a unique ID into an input box which will tell which row that id is available and then it will again ask me which column the cell needs to be highlighted. Once i enter the data, it will then ask me what is the change in data (again via input box). i can then enter the change data and then it stops.
I have a set of data in column R, with an unknown number of rows that looks like this
Days Late -28 150 3 16 41 . . .
and I have written a script to add an adjacent column "S". I want to fill column S with conditional values based on the value of column R, sorted into categories such as "On Time", "Less than One Month Late", etc. Here is what I have so far, it doesn't work:
What I have In Column B, I have the datesIn Column I, I have engineers name What I need I want a macro to generate Serial Nos. (1,2,3....... n) in column A If an only if the date in column B is today's date and the engineer's name matches with the PC's username
I have created a drop down box that allows me to choose multiple different Text Options. Example: Cell B4 has dropdown that lets me choose the Text Options, "House", "Car" and "Truck".
Next, I have 5 or so other columns underneath with their own text. What I want to do is have different cells highlight themselves depending on what is in Cell B4.
Example, if "House" is selected in B4, I want cells B7 and B9 to highlight. If "Car" is selected, I want cells B7, B8, and B10 to highlight. If "Truck" is highlighted, I want cells B9-B11 to highlight. Is this possible to do? I've tried using If/Then statements, but those don't seem to work for this type of thing.
I have a spreadsheet with 'due date' for returns in column L and 'received date' for returns, in the adjacent column M.
I would like to get the due date to turn red when it is overdue, ie. the date in the cell has arrived and no return was submitted. By trawlling the forum, I managed to accomplish this with the following in conditional formatting: Cell value is less than or equal to =TODAY()
All's great.....but - I would like the date to turn back to black if I enter a date in the adjacent received column, column M.
In other words, I want to flag a problem if the due date has passed, but once I receive the return and enter the date I receive it, i would like the due date entry to revert back to the original formatting ie. black. So only the outstanding returns are highlighted.
