# Counting Numbers And Colours Within Cell?

Jan 31, 2013

I wish to count the "number" of numbers in a cell i.e.

Cell A1 has the following data: 12 25 25
This should return 3

Simillarly 4546546545646456 1 2
Should also return 3

I will have data such as the above in a row so i need the count to be able to count a range as opposed to the single cell example above.

Furthermore I need a separate count to count the number or red numbers in a cell. Same parameters as above.

## Counting Colours

Nov 9, 2006

My Request is in Two Parts.
Firstly, I would like to be able to List ALL the Colours Numbers in One Column & the Corresponding Colours Next to them Please in a Sheet Named "Summary" & Starting in Cell T3.

Secondly, I would like to Count How Many Cells in a Range on a Sheet Named "Network Points" and in Cells F4:Q179 has a Particular Colour Please. I would like the Totals to go on the Sheet Named "Summary" Starting in Cell W3.

## Counting Colours And Losing The Will To Live

Oct 20, 2008

I've got a function called countcolor (which I take no credit for) which counts a particular color in a range.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Function CountColor(rColor As Range, rSumRange As Range)

Dim rCell As Range
Dim iCol As Integer
Dim vResult

iCol = rColor.Interior.ColorIndex

For Each rCell In rSumRange
If rCell.Interior.ColorIndex = iCol Then
vResult = vResult + 1
End If
Next rCell

CountColor = vResult
End Function

I have then set up a couple of macros which, when ran, fills a range of cells with a particular color. These colors are closely related but as you can see from the two macros below they ARE different. I'm finding my countcolor function is counting them twice though even though as you can see the color values are different.....
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub pegcharged()
With Selection.Interior
.Pattern = xlSolid
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.Color = 25600...........................

## Metallic Background Colours / Other Colours

Oct 29, 2007

The idea came about after wanting to show a 'gold' 'silver' and 'bronze' background colour, but having to plump for yellow, grey and orange looked a little crap :f

If not, can a workaround be created by using code and a picture or 2?

## Use Cell Colours In Graph

Feb 21, 2007

Attached is a table detailing top 20 Incidents and Requests. Requests are highlighted in Yellow and Incidents are in Green. Associated with this table is a graph. What I like to do is if the bar on the graph represents a Request I want the colour to be yellow and if the bar represents an Incident I want it to be green. At the moment I can only choice one colour or a different colour for each bar.

## A Cell Colour Based On 5 Other Cell Colours That Have Been Conditionally Formatted

Using 2007, I need to conditionally format a cell colour based on 5 other cell colours that have been conditionally formatted. The 5 other cells will be coloured either red or greem. What I want to do is have an overall status cell that would be show green if all of the other 5 cells were green, amber if 4 of the other cells were green and one was red and red if 3 or more cells are red.

## Keep Cell Colours Regardless Of Sort Function

Jan 8, 2010

I have a vertical list where every other cell is coloured grey. The values contained in the list are regularly sorted into alphabetical order with new values being added and other being removed.

Is there a way to keep the cells alternate grey & white after I have sorted them? Currently, when I sort, if a cell is coloured grey and is moved down one cell the colour is moved and not just the values.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) ...

## Changing Cell Colours Depending On Cell Content

Nov 19, 2008

What I need to do is have a cell that will be say yellow until there is information put into this cell. The information could be in the format of text or numbers. The information would not always be the same so it would need to be yellow when there is no information in the cell and another colour or white when there is information in the cell.

## Distinct Colours In A Cell And Conditional Formatting

Feb 8, 2010

This question about conditional formatting appears to be easy. Lets say I have a column like the following, like I posted somewhere else: (not very relevant for this)

BGW
3UG
WWU
1BR
UUBRG
WUBRG
7UUGGRRR

How do I have all characters in this column be coloured accordingly to:

W = WHITE
U = BLUE
B = BLACK
R = RED
G = GREEN

So that 7UUGGRRR would automatically switch to:
7UUGGRRR

What I already tried:

- I applied conditional formatting to the column (actually, the cells interval, [C2..C8]) creating the rule: 'format only cells that contain -> specific text' -> then I added "U" as the text and told it to colour blue. As I predicted, this didn't work; the entire cell containing a single "U" will get blue, which is unwanted.

## Cell Colours For Negative And Positive Values

Jan 24, 2014

I've got 12 months worth of business accounts which have been downloaded onto a single spreadsheet.

These show negative and positive values. As I only want to work on the negative figs at the moment, how do I highlight the colour of the positive value cells or font to prevent any mistakes ?

## Copy Cell Interior Colours Between Workbooks

Jan 26, 2008

i am pretty good with VBA after reading a lot of information on the internet but i have a problem i cannot solve:

I have two workbooks with the same sheet names and I am trying to transfer the interior colour of cells from one workbook to the other...

this is the code i came up so far but it doesn't work

With Application.Workbooks(WB1).Worksheets
For Each ws In Application.Workbooks(WB2).Worksheets
On Error Resume Next
For Each cl In ws.UsedRange
WB1.ws.cl.Interior.ColorIndex = WB2.ws.cl.Interior.ColorIndex
Next cl

Next ws
End With

## Change Cell Colours Based On Date Range In Two Other Cells

Sep 12, 2012

I'm creating a project calendar in Excel and for each task I have a Start Date (A) and End Date (B) in adjacent cells. To the right are corresponding date cells like a timeline set up with 52 cells representing weeks of the year. I.e Week 1 (C) starts at 02 Jul 12, Week 2 (D) starts at 09 jul 12 etc. up to 24 Jun 14 (BF).

Start Date
End date
02-Jul-12
09-Jul-12

[Code]......

When a start date and end date are entered in the respective columns, I need to have the color start on the cell for that range in the timeline and that color should carry out to the end date cell in the timeline. A bit like a Gantt chart but not to that detail.

## Counting Certain Numbers?

## Counting Odd Numbers In A Line?

Jun 13, 2009

Is there an easy way of counting odd or even numbers in a row? I can't figure it out on countif, isodd, odd, count etc.

## Counting Decimal Numbers

Oct 25, 2006

I am trying to find a way of counting decimal numbers if, say, they begin with 3.

For example, I might have 3.33, 4.1, 3.0, 5.65, 3.8, 3.7, 3.33, etc.

I want to count anything that begins with 3 (3.33, 3.0, etc). Using the data above the answer would be 5 ...5 numbers that begin with a 3.

If this possible?

There doesn't appear to be the facility with Countif. I don't want to truncate the data (the spreadsheet already is quite extensive). I have tried using =SUMPRODUCT((Y\$2:Y\$170 >=3)*(Y\$2:Y\$170<=3.9)) but this will return an answer only when there is a complete set of data within cells within the range.

## Counting Duplicate Numbers

Jul 20, 2006

I use the following formula to count duplicate random numbers on Row 35 that occurred on Row 34:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(D35:I36<>""))-SUMPRODUCT((D35:I36<>"")/COUNTIF(D35:I36,D35:I36&""))

I would like to continue to compare against Row 34 and count duplicates on other rows (ex. Row 36 or Row 37) one row at a time.

In addition is it possible to visually identify the duplicates through conditional formatting (ex. Bold or color change) or other ways?

## Formula For Counting Positive Numbers From 0 - 999 In A List

Dec 19, 2011

Any way to make a formula that would "COUNT" the number of positive values from 0 to 999 (no negatives and nothing higher than 999). Another way of saying it would be values greater than or equal to 0 but not more than 999?

For example. If you had the following numbers in a list, I would like a formula that would only count the 3 numbers that are less than 1000 but equal to or greater than 0.

\$370 \$1,070 \$1,400 \$300 \$1,160 (\$4,720) \$1,080 \$1,170 \$30 \$1,050 \$1,150

## Looping Through Rows Counting Cells With Numbers?

Oct 31, 2013

First, I have to say that I am very weak in VBA.

I have a section of code where I need to count the cells from J through BF in rows 42 through 76. The code snippet I'm working on is:

Code:
For r = 42 To 76 Step 1
if Application.WorksheetFunction.Count(Range("J" & r:"BP" & r)) = 0 Then
Err = Err + 1

[Code]....

The code checker highlights the ':' in the 'Range .... = 0' with the message "Expected: list separator or )".
