I am going to use excel for test cases. I can creat a drop down list with the selections "pass", "fail", "not run". That isn't a problem using the data validation toolbar. However I would like to basically color the cell (test case) with a certain color based on the drop down selection.
My pallet lost color-coding - if I hover over each little scare it displays the names for the colors and if I click on them they color the cells with the right colors, but the palette itself lost the visual display of colors except for 8 colors: black, blue, red, magenta, yellow, cyan, and white.
I use color-coding of cells a lot and I find it difficult to work without visual clues. At least the hover-support allows me to get the work done, but with difficulty.
I have used the following =IF(ISBLANK(Q6),"",(NOW())) & =IF(ISBLANK(Q6),"",(Today())), but when the excel file is closed and opened the date changes to now or today. How can I make the date stay and not change?
I have developed an excel template that is used at our fire department for dispatching purposes. The template is loaded and then info is placed into the template. It is a read only file so I am looking to have it save the file name as "Incident Report ()" replacing the bracket will be the value of cell C1. Example would be "Incident Report 234". I would also like it to save in the same file location every time.
I have a worksheet where everything in column A links to a different workbook. Does anyone know if there is a formula that can then look at the cell reference in column A and take the value from a set row in that same column? For example:
The cell in column A2 is set to cell Q1 in a different workbook. I need a formula in cell C2 that will then bring in the value of cell Q64 in that same workbook. Therefore always bringing in the value of row 64 for whichever column the cell in column A is et to.
I am in the process of reformatting an excel workbook to act as a review tool for different factors in a process. Part of my redesign includes the use of coding that creates different cell colors based upon the cell contents. The new workbooks will be used to handle existing data for this year. I have developed a process macro to open an existing workbook and copy and transfer the original data worksheet into the newly formatted workbook. The data gets transferred to the new worksheet and the resulting workbook is renamed and saved, Heres'' the rub... the newly saved workbook is missing all of the coding for the worksheets... apparently this is a MS bug.
Has anyone figured a workaround for this. One thought I had is to open both( new and old )workbooks and rather than move/copy , i would transfer the data using cell references.
I am not sure whether this can happen, I want to capture time taken for different activities, without manually entering the details.I tried the formula "=Now()", but what happens is that at the end of the day the times are all the same because the live time is changing. Is there a way where the live time is captured and freezed, so that at the end of the day i have a time log sheet.
Trying to format cells b9 through b 24 and cells c9 through c24 to change from white to a light grey color by clicking the mouse button once. so one click white, another click grey. The color grey I need is white, background 1, darker 25% in the autofill field in excel. I have search other forums they all lead to changing the code, I did this already. just copy pasted a code I found but all cells were selected to change a bright green.
I am making some grids which will have a series of numbers in the individual cells. But I can't figure out how to change the colors of the digits. If I change one digit to Red; all the numbers in that cell change to Red. Whereas I would like to have them as Red,Green,Black,Blue,etc.
I have read the instructions for conditional formatting and I don't think that is what I need. I have 10 diff year 2005,06,07 etc. I want each cell with with a diff year to turn a diff color. Like I want 2005 to be red and 2008 to be blue.
I'm trying to have change if the date on it is passed "now()". I am already using the 3 conditional formatting fields and need this one and another one. Here are 2 problems I seem to be having.
First - the code below only works if I change the date on the cell. I want code to either work with Worksheet Active or any other way so the user does not have to redo the date’s everyday. Second - a record might have conditional formatting already. Is it possible for the target cell in this code can show this color while the rest of the row shows the color of the conditional formatting?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer If Not Intersect(Target, Range("G1:G2000")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case Is <= Now() icolor = 39
Let's say I have a value in B2, and a formula in C2. If I drag the formula from C2 all the way down to C20 (spreading it 18 times), the formula wants the value in B2, B3, B4, etc.. down to B20. How do I drag a formula, but have it always reference B2?
I belive i have a simple date stamp problem, but i do not know the correct VBA to edit the code posted below. I would like to have a datestamp placed in an adjacent cell based upon a particular value. For instance, If Cancel is entered into cell a2, then b2 would gave the date stamp. or if Started was entered into a2, then c2 would have the date stamp.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A2:A100")) Is Nothing Then With Target(1, 2) .Value = Date .EntireColumn.AutoFit End With End If End Sub
I need to change the color of a specific cell when conditions are met in a different cell and it seems like it may be beyond the scope of simply applying conditional formatting. What vba code would look like in proper syntax to make the following statement true. IF cell value Q4 is >=cell value S4 AND cell value R4 is <100 Then cell Q4 turns red and IF cell value Q4 is >= cell value S4 AND cell value R4 =100 then cell Q4 turns green. it may also be useful to know that the "cell values" in this example will be dates and not straight values. this may be possible to do using conditional formatting, but i cannot find a formula that works.
I have a filtered row that calculates values based on user input. I would like to take the calculated value of a cell in that row and place it as a static value in a different cell.
For example, the filtered row is row 85. The user inputs 5.5%. Cell AK85 calculates the value to be $100,000. Cell AK3 references the original row, which is 3. I would like to take the $100,000 value and place it in cell AK3 but as a static value and not based on a formula.
when I copy a worksheet from one workbook to another, the colors on the sheet in the destination workbook, become dull/faded. They actually change from the original colors to some off colors. I copy by selecting the source sheet, hold down ctrl key, then drag from one workbook to another). Also, is there a way to get the sheet back to the original colors.
We have a workbook with over 20 worksheets, each sheet with one or more tables in it. Several people use the workbook and we have decided that when someone changes a cell, they should mark the changed cell by filling it with blue using Format Cell. We have then nominated one person at end of each week who will check all the changes made during the week and either approve or reject them. So her task is to find all the blue cells, check them and then take the shading off.
What I would like to do is to create a macro to help her. I would like the macro to automatically identify all the blue cells in the workbook and give her a list of these cells. I wonder if someone could give me direction on a couple of things:
1) The command in the macro that would return whether a cell is shaded blue
2) The way in which I could cycle through all the content of each worksheet. I'm thinking worse case I would have to write instructions to go to each sheet, and then do an outer loop to go through each row, and an inner loop for each column (and the number of active cells varies by worksheet) -
Within the Workbook events there is a "Before_Print", however I also need something like "After_Print" which does not exist (as far as I can tell).
I have several rows of data which alternate colors. When I print it I want to take out the fill (so as to save ink) - which I can do in the "Before_Print" event. [No problem.] However, once it is done printing I need to restore the alternating colors, but I cannot think of any event or trigger which would enable this.
I have thought through several things and the closest thing I can think of is setting up a timer. But there is of course no way to now how long to set it for. [Before/After Save also has the same "issue".]
i am using a set of VB codes that was kindly provided by "dr". Please refer to the link below.
Highlight-Select Start Date To End Date
However, I am facing problems on how to delete or unfill the cells that are "coloured and filled with booking reference name" (i.e. being booked by the user).
In another words, currently, once a booking is made, the blank slots would be coloured to red and would reflect the customer name in those slots (with the use of dr's VB codes).
Comes the next day, if that booking needs to be cancelled, would the user be able to "delete" that booking that was made (i.e. uncolour that slot plus remove the customer name) without having to automatically go unfill the cells and delete the text in the cells?
I am trying to write a macro that can copy the shading from another cell for me automatically. I would like to look for certain text strings within a serial number, and when found, copy that cell's shading in another cell.
I am using INDEX, MATCH to copy the corresponding value needed, but that doesn't give me the shading...
Any way where is a list of cells (b3:b113) has text entered, or specific text entered, it will enter a static cell in the corresponding "d" column.
I know of CTRL + ; but i don't really know how to get it to work as a macro, can't find a forumla that enters the static date, and i don't want to make a macro to copy + paste special the date when it happens.
So all i should have to do is entered text in column b, then it will add a time stamp, when that text was entered, it doesn't have to update.
Like all i need is this, but instead of the "now()" function, it will have another function that doesn't automatically update?
