Conditionally Format Rows Based Duplicates Only Found In First Column?

Dec 6, 2013

I'm trying to conditionally format rows of data based on duplicates in the first column, then filter the results. I have a table of data with mutiple variables assigned to different "headings" that looks a little something like this:



[selects the table, then GoTo Special selects the blanks, fills in the blanks with the cell above, then Copy and Pastes As Values the entire table again to fill everything in]

I’m stuck on how to input a formula into the conditional formatting window that will:
Format the text to white in columns A, B, and E based on there being a duplicate above that row in Column A only. i.e. conditionally format the values with a * below:



If I use the conditional formula I found: =A1=A2, then cell E3 gets made white text when I don’t want it to, hence the “referencing column A” part of the question (Column A is always a unique ID number whereas Column E can have a duplicate in the row above). [Edit: Why can't I type Enter or put a line break here... I'll try re-edit at home...] When I go to filter on Column C for YYY again, the conditional formatting needs to realise to un-white the text, which is my next headache because it means conditional formatting that acts relative to hidden rows as a result of a filter... Oh and did I mention the client wants this done in 2003? This is an afterthought though – as I can force them to use 2010 if need be

Conditionally Format Each Group Of Rows And Each Column And Color The Cell In Each Column

Nov 27, 2009

I've a worksheet that is 3750 rows of cells from A to DT and contains only numbers with the exception of a header row. The rows are in groups, primarily 4 rows, although there are exceptions - these rows are separated by blank rows. Small example as follows.


I have been trying to conditionally format each group of rows and each column and color the cell in each column of four (or less) numbers in each group that represents the maximum number.
It was easy enough to come up with the conditional formatting BUT it will take forever to do this manually. I've been told to use a macro but I know nothing of programming. Has anyone seen or heard of a macro that might already be written to perform this onerous task.

Concatenate Varying Numbers Of Cells Based On Duplicates Found In Separate Column

Jul 25, 2011

I need to concatenate varying numbers of cells based on duplicates found in a separate column, but I'm not sure how to approach it. I have 41,000+ rows of data, so I have to find a formula.

Conditionally Hide Rows Based On 1 Column

Nov 22, 2007

I am trying to hide rows based on the contents of column BS. It the cell is empty (not just zero value, but completely empty of all formulae), then I want to leave it unhidden, then if the cell value is less than the value in cell E2 I want to hide the row. This code doesnt seem to like the first if...then next i

Sub hiderows()
Dim i As Long
Set v = cell.Value("$E$2")
' Turn off screen refresh for speed
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
' Get last row Col BS
For i = Range("BS2000").End(xlUp).Row To 15 Step -1
If IsEmpty(Cells(i)) Then Next i
ElseIf Cells.Value(i) < v Then Rows(i).Hidden = True
End If
Next i
' Turn on screen refresh
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Search Column Bottom Up Then Delete Rows Based On Value Found

Jul 7, 2009

I've attached a dummy worksheet that shows constant values of 1.00 in columns D and E. In the actual workbook, user action will sometimes cause these values to change to something other that 1.00. The user may wish to delete the action that caused the change.

I need a macro that will search from the last cell in column D upward to the first instance of a cell that is not equal to 1.00 and select that cell and those immediately above with the same value as the first found cell.

For example, in the attached worksheet the search would start in the last cell of Columd D and search upward. It would find cell D23 and upward to D19. These entire rows would be deleted.

Conditionally Format Currency Based On Another Cell?

Feb 28, 2014

What I am trying to do is create a multi-currency expense report. For example, cell B1 has a drop down list of three different currencies. Based on the currency selected in B1, I want C1 to reflect that number formatting using the proper currency.

Im sure there is an easy way to do this but I have tried using an if statement in the conditional formatting section but it does not work.

how to total the different currencies using the ifsum formula, so this is more of a presentation task, but still it has annoyed me to no end.

In the example workbook, the currency value selected in row E should effect the currency formatting in Rows F-L

Conditionally Format First Cell Based On Values In The Row

Apr 29, 2009

i've been trying for teh last two days to figuire out a way to conditionally format the first cell in a row to turn a certain color based on the values of several independant cells in that row, as opposed to monitoring the whole row. I have tried numerous IF, AND, OR, formulas to no avail. The cell obviously also needs to ignore blank cells...Can this be done?

Basically I want the first cell to turn yellow if dates in certain cells are within 90 days of today, and turn red if within 30 days of today.......

Conditionally Format Column B If It Finds A Match In A

Jan 30, 2012

What is wrong with this formula? I have used it before just fine, but sometimes including now it won't work.

PRODUCT_IMAGE Images 244-447439 244-455507 244-455507 244-455508 244-455508 244-455509 244-455509 244-455512

We can clearly see that we have a match in rows 2 and 1 columns A and B, but I am getting #NA. I have sorted the columns A-Z as well. I have also tried formatting the columns different ways and I still get #NA.

I need to conditionally format column B if it finds a match in A.

Conditionally Change Number Format Based On Another Cell's Value

Dec 1, 2009

Format the number in Column AL to '[hh]:mm' when Column C's value is ="P/T", otherwise format to 'General'

Column C's value is referenced from another sheet in the same workbook via a VLOOKUP function.

Column AL's value is based on an IF formula which goes like this:

Basically the above formula asks if Column C's value is F/T then count (because if F/T then the corresponding values in that row are whole numbers). If not, then SUM (because if P/T the corresponding values in that row are set to [hh]:mm format).

I have another sheet in the same workbook which has code (quoted below) which does something similar but I don't understand it enough to get it doing what I want for the sheet in question.

Conditionally Format Entire Row Based On Adjacent Cell Values

May 24, 2013

I have a large workbook with 2 rows of data I want to format (R25:R530, M25:M530). Row M is already populated, row R is new data that I am entering. When the value of a cell in row R is larger than its adjacent cell (R25:M25) in row M, I would like the font to turn red. When the value is smaller, I would like the font to turn green.

With the amount of time I've spent attempting to conditionally format, I could have gone through and formatted each cell individually by now!

Conditionally Hide Rows Based On Cell Value

Sep 29, 2006

I'd like to hide rows based on the value of a specific cell (that specific cell will always be C14, and it will have up to 8 variables selectable from a drop down list).

For example, if C14 = Innovative/exploratory, i'd like to hide rows 15-45. If C14 = Technical Service, i'd like to hide rows 15-32, and 42-44. I'm not familiar with VB, but am a quick study -

Conditionally Remove Duplicates

Dec 4, 2007

Attach is a Demo Sample file

The formatting etc is same for real file Note that the real file will have up to 65000 rows of data like this.

My Problem is to remove conditionally some duplicate rows - however my difficulty trying to thinking about this is that I cant use a unique value comparison as the columns I to L they all are X s so when a X is present in columns I to L need to be conditional on comparing values in other columns

What is needed is to repeat remove duplications in each of the four columns I to L (titled E1, E2, E3, and E4 ) when there is a match of string in columns F, G and M but dont delete if on same row there is a value in columns O to S (E5 to E9).

In the demo file I have highlighted in yellow the rows that would be removed if the code works.

IF there is an X in column I (E1) and the string in column F (personnel number) is the same as row below it, and the string in column G (person name) is same as below it, and the string in Column M (Team number) is same as row below it, and there are NO values in columns O to S (E5 to E9) on same row Then delete the duplicate/s retain only one.

Repeat for columns J, K and L (E2, E3 and E4)

Add Rows Based On Found Row On Another Sheet

Dec 17, 2006

I want the code to insert a line under the row in which the code will find the value of the cell from an another sheet (there are two sheets - enter and base). If the code can't find the given value it should go to the last empty row in sheet and then perform some action (probably copy/paste job). Here is the code I came up with, the only thing I don't know is how to set the searched value as the A1 cell value of the sheet "enter" and what procedure to use in case this value is not found.

Sub findme()
'x is the A1 cell value in sheet enter
'if the following find procedure is successful
Selection.Find(What:=x, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _
:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Activate .........

Deleting Rows Based On If Match Found

Jan 23, 2012

I run a match formula which returns the row numbers of items i need to delete - at the moment, when a match is found, it will say "Match found, delete row 4" for example. Since multiple matches, potentially into the hundreds could be found - is there a way that i could run a script to delete the rows automatically when a match is found? So instead of putting the above "match found, please delete row 4" into an adjacent cell, could we just delete row 4? & then move onto the next row where a match is found?

Excel 2007 :: Delete Rows If Value Is Found In Column S

Jan 23, 2012

I'm using this code to find values of "FEP MHS" or "LSD MHS" in column S and if column S containes either of these values it deletes the entire row from the spreadsheet. I need this to work on a spreadsheet that runs on a daily basis and each day it contains a different number of rows. I have used this code to successfully delete most rows that contain these values in Column S but for some reason it does not delete all the rows, typically leaving 6 - 7 rows that contain these values. I'm using Excel 2007 I need code that finds the last row used and deletes the entire row if these values are present.

Set RngRSLHMHSD = Columns("S").SpecialCells(xlConstants, xlTextValues)
For iRSLHMHSD = RngRSLHMHSD.Count To 1 Step -1
Then RngRSLHMHSD(iRSLHMHSD).EntireRow.Delete

Delete Rows Based On Duplicates In X Columns

May 14, 2006

I've been looking through various forums looking for a macro for a particular task, but I have not found something that works yet. Maybe someone could help me out? It's pretty straightforward situation.

I need a macro that removes an entire row when: information in column B and column C are both found in other rows ( duplicates).

I'm dealing with a worksheet with store record information ... Store Name (column B), Street Name (column C), State/Province, etc. I import new store records all the time and many are invalid because they share the same name and street address and therefore need to be removed. The ones that Ive played with unfortunately end up deleting the cells only and not the entire row.

It's a tedious process to do manually remove entire rows (for duplicate column B&C) when dealing with thousands of rows and I would very much appreciate any assistance or insight into how simplify the process with a macro. I've attached a sample of what I'm working with.

Reducing Multiple Rows - Duplicates In Column A

Nov 13, 2006

I can't figure out a solution.

4 columns, thousands of rows.

Column A has alphanumeric data that can appear, once, twice, 3 times or 4, but never more than 4.

I want to see this spreadsheet so that each piece of data in column A is presented only once.

The information in the other 3 columns isn't important for what I want to do, so I need to reduce 20000 + rows, which includes many duplicates in Column A to about 5-60000, but need help figuring the correct formula/macro ....

Using COUNTIF To Conditionally Format Cells

Jun 4, 2014

I am attempting to create a staffing calendar that will use conditional formatting to alert the coordinator by highlighting the cell when certain thresholds are reached.

The spreadsheet has three tabs, with 'Master' being the final copy.

In the 'Magic' tab, I was able to get it work with a rolling count but I am having trouble recreating it when the count is stationary and not updating itself line by line aside the person's name.

What I'm preferably looking to have happen is for the 'Name' to light up when it appears more than 3 times in a week in the Day fields, more than 1 time a week in the O/C field and more than 7 times a month in the Night field.

Conditionally Format IF, ISNUMBER, MATCH

Jan 14, 2009

the attached document. I wish to try and conditionally format Sheet1!D:D depending on if Sheet2!E:E displays a particular letter, when; Matching Sheet1!A:A to Sheet2!A:A Matching Sheet1!B:B if <11 to Sheet2!B:B where cell equals text "Small (7-10)" if Sheet1!B:B is >10 then where Sheet2!B:B equals text "Mid - Large (11-16)"
Matching Sheet1!C:C if cell contains "Hcap" to Sheet2!C:C where cell equals "Handicaps". If Sheet1!C:C doesnt contain "Hcap" match to Sheet2!C:C where cell equals "All Races".

To use an example, if E:E in the cell adjacent to all the matches above equals N then the cell in Sheet1!D:D turns red. Cell D52 would become red. D88, D91, D92, D93 and D96 would also become red. Here was my attempt at the formula, no idea if I was close to the answer.

Conditionally Format Dynamic Range?

Jul 18, 2014

I'm looking for a way to apply conditional formatting to a dynamic range, as the number of rows will vary each week.

Col A could be used as a reference, as it will always have a number in it, but wherever it stops is where I would need the conditionally formatted range to cut-off as well.

The actual range that would need formatting applied to it is Columns F-I where:

For any values < 1.00 (it should also cover blanks, which should be treated as zeros), red highlighting is applied & For any text that reads "Flagged" or "Not Reported", they would need to become bold

Additionally, I would like to start the formatting on Row 2 of the sheet in question, named "1010version"

Conditionally Format A Cell That Already Contains A Formula?

Nov 14, 2009

I wish to compare 2 sets of data in 2 cells and in the third cell i wish to both display the difference and format in a colour depending on the outcome of the difference. Is this possible? or is there another solution?

e.g cell A1 is 21
cell B1 is 26
cell C1 is the difference and if the difference is greater than say 2 then it would colour red if equal to 1 then yellow and if less than 1 as in 0 -1 etc it would colour green. I have been very successfully using conditional formatting to colour a cell that has the data inputted but cant now do it for the formula cell. The context is pupil progress but that i guess is irrelevant really.
