Count Of Red Background Color Cells

Nov 9, 2011

I am using the following formula and getting a #NAME returned

I just need the count of the red background color cells.

Code:
=SUMPRODUCT(--(ExtCell("backgroundcolor",$E$2:$E$13,1)=3))

Where E2:E13 have the values and only the red background (=3) is needed. If the green and yellow background colors where needed what do I set the = to?

Correct Syntax For Function To Find Average Based On Background Color Of Cells In Range

May 20, 2014

I'm working on a workbook that will track staffing patterns.

The workbook has three worksheets: Sheet1 "RCS", Sheet2 "HCT' and Sheet3 "Hidden". I've attached the workbook to this thread. The password for the form is "j".

On Sheet3 "Hidden" I have two tables that are set up to collect the SUM of columns on Sheets1 "RCS" and Sheet2 "HCT". I'm finding the SUM of each range by way of the background color. I've set up the following formulas and when the "data collection tables" are in the same worksheets as the original information, the formula's work perfectly:

The following functions are pulling data from Sheet1 "RCS" and placing them into a table in Sheet2 "Hidden"

[Code] ........

The following functions are pulling data from Sheet1 "RCS" and placing them into a table in Sheet2 "Hidden"

[Code] .......

I have two more functions that aren't working due to the fact that the source values are percentages and NOT plain numbers. The above functions work great for SUM but not for percentages. EXAMPLE--Let's say, 3 sub percentages it gives me the SUM of the 3 percentages (i.e. 85% + 100% + 100% = 285% instead of giving me 95%.

[Code] ........

How might I use the following functions to find the average of the source fields instead of the SUM?

Count By Font Color & Background Color

Dec 12, 2007

In excel 2000, I am trying to count the lines in a spreadsheet that has the first cell in each row highlighed in yellow. Additionally, I am trying to count the number of rows that has a red font used in the cell in column D.

I have reviewed other posts by searching counting highlighted cells, but I do not understand how to complete the entire process. One of the suggestion was to create a vb script in combination with using =cellindex(??). I do not really understand how to create this, name it and the run it.

Return Value Based On Background Color

Mar 11, 2014

I've got a problem to write macro. I need users to color code background (manual not conditional formatting) depending of progress in projects. Then range L6:N10 will automatically return value (from range E5:I5) based on background color.

Users got very basic excel skills and their work will limit to manual background change.

I need something like INDEX MATCH based on colorindex.

Background Color Of Cell Based On Colors In Column

Sep 28, 2013

I have a data base in which I classify cells in three colors (green, yellow, and red) on my own. I would like the first cell in each column to indicate if there is a red or yellow cell in it's column. Because red cells are more important then yellow cells, if there is a yellow and a red cell in the column, I would like the red to over ride the yellow and the first cell would indicate red.

So basically, if there is a red cell in the column, no matter what other colors there are, the first cell should show red. If there is only yellow or yellow and green cells, the first cell should show yellow. If there are only green cells or green cells and clear, the first cell should show clear.

Change Cell Background Color Based On Multiple Conditions

Aug 6, 2008

My Excel skills are basic at best, with no knowledge of VBA other than finding the VB Editor. What I'm trying to do: Attached is the file I'm working with, to give you a better idea. When a name is selected in column B, the cells in the non corresponding columns E to N should have a black background color. For example, when you select Mike in column B, the cells in that row in columns I to N, named Dave and Dean, should become black. If you select the name Dave, columns E to H (Mike) and M to N (Dean) should become black. In addition, the background color of the non-black cells should change depending on the status.

OK : green
FAIL: red
N/A: orange
Exceptions: blue

The attached file shows a few possible results, manually entered.

Macro is not working .So the macro I am using is supposed to look back at all the months tab, match the Name from previous tabs and if they match change background color of the active sheet's cell to red.

I want this candidate name to turn red once I type his name in November/December tab.

Macro To Change Background Color And Text Of Certain Cells On Mouseclick

Next, I would need a macro that resets everything back to red. I hope this macro could be assigned to a form button.

Changing Cell Background Color In Another Sheet Based On Cell Value

Jun 13, 2013

I am working on a workbook with 200+ sheets and an index linking to each of the sheets. On the sheets there is a cell containing the results of calculations and I need the cell referencing the sheet in the index to change background colors depending if the calculations value is greater or less than 0. I currently have working code that also changes the tab color of each sheet depending on the value, but i am trying to add the index cell background change functionality into that. also, the index listings is subject to change. my working code is

VB:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("d34").Value < 0 Then
Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 3
ElseIf Range("D34").Value > 0 Then
Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 4
Else

[Code]...

and the code i am trying to get working is

VB:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngX As Range
Set myRange = Worksheets("Index").Range("A1:A500").Find(Range("C2").Text, lookat:=xlPart)
' the C2 is the reference the title that would be on the index
If Range("d40").Value < 0 Then

[Code]....

I keep getting the runtime error '1004: application-defined error or object-defined error the thing is, i ran the cell background changing code in a normal macro before integrating it in my other worksheet code first and it worked fine. I have a little code experience, though not much in vba and I am unsure what the issue is. if there is another better way to accomplish what I'm tring to do, that would also be fine.

Color Column Charts Based On Font Color Data Cells

Oct 27, 2009

I have attached the relevant spreadsheet for which I need to alter the color of the columns based on Site number ( Sheet 1). % Mortality will be represented in the Y-Axis, and the Site numbers would be on the X-Axis. All columns (% Mortality) except one will be of the same color, and the one of a different color will indicate a specific site. As an example, site 86 is colored differently. The way I require the chart to look is shown on Sheet 1.

After reading through some great posts on Ozgrid, I managed to do this using conditional formatting (Sheet 2), but that sort of falls short because I am required to add a data table to the chart, and the parameter that is indicated by the column bars happens to appear twice in the data table.

I was wondering if this can be automated maybe using VBA, but with the possibility of simply matching the color of columns with the font color of respective entry in the data series.

Color Cells Based On Color Of Preceeding Cell

Nov 18, 2007

I am looking for a very simple script that will achieve the following:

On the clicking of a button, Select and shade in a cell yellow, delete the yellow shading of the previous cell. The shading & selection should move up a column of cells, 1 at a time, in the following order:

From B10 to B9, then B9 to B8, B8 to B7 etc until the selection and shading is at B2. Once it is at B2 subsequent clicks will simply keep it at B2 (the top). Thus after 8 clicks the shading & selection should travel from B10 to B2, with only 1 cell being shaded yellow and selected at any one time.

Now, i get to it by clicking "more colors" and then selecting it from that dialog. This is a lighter shade of yellow. I swear it used to be on the dropdown, but i believe it was removed at some excel version, so now its more of a hassle for me to get to it. Is this customization possible? In the macro recorder, it comes out as .Color = 10092543. Now, it will occasionally show up for a while under "recent colors" but then that will go away after a while.
