Count Cells Based On Font Color
Hi, I've been cracking my head for a few days your assistance is much appreciated.
The ones in red is conditionally formatted. So I want at the end of each row to count how many are in red.
Count By Font Color & Background Color
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.
Color Column Charts Based On Font Color Data Cells
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.
Macro To Color Cells Based On Their Font Color
I have a spreadsheet that i download from the net daily, which is seperated into columns of information.
I want to be able to look down a column and mark a cell in a seperate column if the cell font text is red.
For example looking down column A ... if the font text of a1 is red then mark the cell background colour of T1 red - if a2 text colour is red then mark the cell T2 red .... etc etc.
If the font colour in a1 or a2 ... etc etc is any other colour then do nothing.
I have 5 columns I wish to look down and mark in 5 seperate columns - I have tried to do this by conditional formating but don't know the fomula for checking font colour.
Deleting Cells Based On Font Color
I am trying to delete certain cells within a range of data (A13:E29) that have white font or #N/A's. The only information I need is the black data. I have to manually go and clear these cells for many different ranges. I'd like to incorporate a macro that analyzes the range first to delete the values that are white font or #N/A.
Change Font Color In A Range Based On One Cells Information
I have attached an example file.. Basically I want the text in a range to change to red if one cell="Description".
Also, I want a cell's text to turn blue if it's corresponding data in the row says "Click on Title to Follow Link"
The example file explains it a lot better..
Thanks for the help.. Sorry if this may seem like a duplicate post but I was not able to get any of the examples I searched for to work that others have posted.. Also, maybe conditional formatting would be an option here but I could not get it to work as it will only meet the first condition that comes across thats true...
Conditional Formatting Conflict: Change The Cells Font Color And Bolding As Long As The Value Is Within That Date Range
I have two conditions setup in Options>View - Zero Values.", "style="background: #FFFFFF;padding: 2px;font-size: 10px;width: 550px;"");' onmouseout='GAL_hidepopup();'>formatting.htm" target="_blank">conditional formatting. The first is setup for alternate row coloring with this formula inside Conditional Formatting:
Formula is = MOD(ROW(),2)
My Second Condition is
Cell Value is between $P$10 and $Q$10. This sets the font bold and a different color. The two cell values are two dates. I want to change the cells font color and bolding as long as the value is within that date range. It works fine, but for cells that are on the row that is colored the second condition doesn't apply for some reason.
Sum/Count By Color Recalculation With Conditional Formatting
I have just set up a conditional format to change the colour of my cells in column F based on a yes or no value in column E. I have a colour function formula working to sum the totals of the cells coloured the 2 different colours seperately. Since applying the conditional format. the formula for colourfunction will only total 0.
Is there a way i can apply the colourfunction formula to cells coloured by using conditional formatting
Change Font Color Based On Adjacent Cell Color
I have two columns. The first one (A) contains cells that have different Fill colors. The second column (B) contains text adjacent to the colored cells. I am trying to change the color of the text in the second column (B) to the corresponding color in the adjacent cell in the first column (A). I don't think conditional formating works well in this situation. I believe the solution would be some sort of macro.
Change Font Color If Cell Color Become Yellow (6)
I have font color white in blank cells in column E and I (from row 5 to row 245) so the visitors will not see the text. If any of these cells become yellow (color code is 6), the font color will become black so visitors can see the text alot far better than white. I've tried this code myself after this post but nothing happen
Font Color Based On Interior Color
I would like to have cells that conditionally format the font color in the cell based on the background color of the cell. Essentially I have a matrix with some cells highlighted in red, yellow, or orange. There are values in each cell of the matrix. If a value is 0 I want the font to be grey. If the value is NOT 0 AND the cell backgorund color is NOT white, I would like it black and bold. Is there any way to do this in excel or using VB?
Comparing Two Cells Based On Text, Font, Colour, Font Size Etc
I'm looking to set up a spreadsheet whereby individuals answer questions and have to format their answer using a particular font, colour, font size and so on.

Sum Cells By Fill Color
I am getting with the great user defined function (SumColor) you posted here and that I have modified a bit to suit my need. I have a spreadsheet thanks to which I calculate the total cost of a product (find spreadsheet attached below). There are three types of costs:
1. Amortization: always start with AMOXXXXX which I locate in the end of the spreadsheet
2. Assemblies: always start with a 99XXX or 98XXX
3. Components: any other notation (90, 91, 92, etc.)
Each product can have until 5 levels of subassemblies:
1. Level 0: always located in row 8 with big bold letters
2. Level1: cells in yellow (color index = 36).................
Conditional Count On Specific Color Cells
I need to count the grey coloured cells in a column based on the value in a different column (Column I has the team that the person is in). I already have a code from a previous thread to count the coloured cells (below) but this doesn't work when using an array formula. I have also tried just selecting the cells I need it to count (the people within the specific team), but the formula doesn't work unless the range uses adjacent cells...
How Do I Sum Up Values Only In Cells That Are Color Filled
This thing drives me crazy for the past few days. Please helpI can go to sleep.
I have several columns with numerical data. When certain criteria are met, a person manually makes some of the column fields a green fill color via the color fill button.
Let's say I have data in cells E4 to E14
Below, I have a total field (auto Sum function used to total all),
And, another row with The Colored Green totals.
How do I enter the appropriate code to total only the fields that are green?
I have found some info on verious sites but I have been unsuccesful to implement.
I attach a sample sheet, I was playing around a bit, you can ignore the fill color red, just deal with the green fields.
Sum Conditional Formatted Cells By Color

Add The Sum Of Cells By Color- With Different Values
I have this fantasy footy comp I run and every week I enter player by player scores. To make it easier for me I need to a strange formula. Basically can you make a formulua to sum cell based on text colour?
Every week the 3 players with the highest scores get votes. Eg highest gets 3 votes, second highest 2 votes and 3rd highest 1 vote. After each game I look thorough the players and change the colour of the 3 best to make them stand out. Green on black for highest, yellow on black for 2nd highest and red on black for third highest.
Is there a way to at the end of each week to have a the cell (for example cell v43 in my sample) to update or add up all the 3pts 2pts and 1pts that player has accumulated throughout the season?? In my example I have just hand counted them and inputed them.
Sum Cells Based On Color Index
I am trying to use a function kindly listed by Dave, that allows for a SUM to be done on cells which have a certain color index. I have modified it very slightly, but unable to set the call to it without getting errors, perhaps someone can shed some light on what i am doing wrong. Dave's original code is
Function ColorFunction(rColor As Range, rRange As Range, Optional SUM As Boolean)
Dim rCell As Range
Dim lCol As Long
lCol = rColor.Interior.ColorIndex
If SUM = True Then
For Each rCell In rRange
If rCell.Interior.ColorIndex = lCol Then
vResult = WorksheetFunction.SUM(rCell,vResult)
For Each rCell In rRange
If rCell.Interior.ColorIndex = lCol Then
vResult = 1 + vResult
ColorFunction = vResult

Font Color Shortcut
I am just looking for a keyboard shortcut macro. I change the font color in rows one at a time to either blue or red by selecting that row and using the format toolbar to select the color I want. Is there a macro shortcut for changing font color?
Even further, can the macro be able to change the font color of the entire row without highlighting the entire row? Meaning if I only have 1 cell selected within the row I want to color the font and apply the shortcut, can it color the font in the entire row???
Change Font Color ...
I would like to address this:
If cell in column1 is filled (.Interior.ColorIndex = 15) then font color is 0 in any cell of that row.
(right now the color is red and I cannot change this at the source but will have to add a sheet change event maybe)
Font Color Index
I have a spreadsheet which has some cells with blue font. If anyone tries to manually change the contents of these cells a worksheet change macro reads the colour index of the font and, if it is 5 (blue), uses "application.undo" to repair the damage.
When I use the sheet on another computer, the same font colur is being read as a four digit number, 4015 I think from memory, and the code doesn't work.
Filter By Font Color
So i have a workbook with 3 sheets in. Each sheet has various titles in it all in BLACK BOLD Text. Under each title it has various items these are in different colors red / blue / grey 40%. What i want is to have an event that just displays the tite + say the blue items and all others will be hidden.
Formula To Change Font Color
I am trying to figure out what the formula would be to change the font color if the entered number is less than the quota.
I'm making a spreadsheet for work that each of the reps will punch in their daily numbers, and, for example, if there quota was 70 and they are <70 than the font will turn red, and if greater or equal to 70 it will turn green.
Using IF Function To Change Font Color
I'm trying to use Excel to keep team standings for a baseball board game. I had no problem calculating wining percentage. Finally figured out how to calculate 'games behind.' Now I'm wondering if there is a way to change the font color of a team name based on their wining pct?
A typical row contains: A2(Team Name), B2 (Wins), C2 (Losses), D2 (Pct (B2/(B2+C2)), E2 (GB). Is there a way to use the IF function to return the 'Team Name' in green if D2>.500, 'Team Name' in red if D2<.500, and 'Team Name' in black if D2=.500 ??

Color Font Dependent On Input
I would like the color of an entry to automatically be set depending on an input. For example if “R” is entered into the cell, the color of the text would automatically be green. Is a macro the best way to handle this? If so, what would the program language look like? Other solutions?
Determine Character Font Color
I am trying to create a loop that will check the characters in each cell of a specified range and add that cell to a range object if the first or the last character in the cell is a specified color (red in this case). I am using the code listed below, which seems to work to a point. The problem is that the "Union" function does not appear to be working after the first two cells are added. Am I using this function incorrectly?
For Each c In .Range("R1:R50").Cells
charCnt = c.Characters.Count
If c.Characters(1, 1).Font.ColorIndex = 3 Or _
c.Characters(charCnt, 1).Font.ColorIndex = 3 Then
If redCells Is Nothing Then
Set redCells = c
Set redCells = Union(redCells, c)
