Excel 2002 :: Conditional Formatting And Formulas?

Jun 11, 2013

I'm currently trying to set up a spreadsheet on excel, when certain documents need updating. Basically I have a column with the dates in that each document was last updated, I want the cells to turn red (fill colour) if the document has not been updated within the last 6 months and orange (fill colour) if the document has not been updated in the last 4 months. How do I do this?

I am currently using Excel 2002 and am on a Windows XP computer.

I have columns of figures with times like 5:52:54 and next to them cells with values that i wish to format based on the time. that is if the time on the adjacent cell is before 8AM then make the value cell have a red border it does not have to be conditional formatting - Excel 2002 in win7/64

Conditional Formatting 1 cell with 3 different formulas

I am monitoring tank levels using a program called "PI". I need to know if the tank is rising, lowering or staying the same.

I am using conditional formatting to turn red if high, blueif low and yellow if stays the same. Column B, F and J are tank volumns, Column C is in feet and D is in inches.

A B C D E F G H I J K L 1 TIME LEVEL FT IN TIME LEVEL FT IN TIME LEVEL FT IN 2 7:00 3628 18 11 9:00 3456 18 0 11:00 3321 17 3

AB AC AD 1305 5600 3600 LOW HIGH CURRENT

I started using formals =$B$2=$AD$2 COLOR YELLOW =$B$2>$AC$2 COLOR RED =$B$2

I need to apply conditional formatting to cells in a column that contain formulas, or more accurately cells that do not. I have a spreadsheet with default values in a column based on a lookup function. I need to know if the user overwrites the default and cannot use UDF's or VBA. I don't think it's possible so my alternative is to include a hidden column that does the same lookup and do the conditional format off of a comparison.

In my workbook I have several column with dates, these are benchmarks that I need to follow and have my patient's follow. They concern the dates of treatments and of lab work. My last column is Contact Needed and does not contain any formulas or code. Is there a way to change the color of the row to adjust for how close we are to the treatment date or the lab draw date.

I was thinking if I were +/- 7 days from each blood draw the row would be yellow, so I could contact the patient and remind them to get the labs done. If it was over 7 days past scheduled blood draw, the row would be light red, as the urgency to get labs and continue treatment has increased as they are past due. In like manner, if treatment are within 14 days, the row would be yellow so i could call them and set the appointment. If past the treatment date, the row goes red and I have 14 days to get them in or we have to start treatment s all over again.

Can you have IF and AND statements in Conditional formatting formulas?

I put this and I get an error: =IF(AND($G5=""($H5=<>"")) I was testing the water for adding and OR statment also. I really want if cell G5 is blank and cell H5 or I5 has text, then G5 should be red.

Lets say I have a block of cells (lets say A1:E5) that all reference the value in the upper left hand cell (A1). Could be a formula by itself or one embedded within a conditional format. I reproduced the formula and formats in the A1:E5 block by using the absolute cell reference $A$1.

I now want to reproduce that entire block (including the referenced cell A1) multiple times on the sheet, but the catch is that each new block must reference the cell in IT'S OWN upper left hand corner. (e.g. a block located at F10:J15 must use as it's reference F10, not A1).

How can I quickly reproduce those blocks? I have done a search and replace to eliminate the $ symbols within the formulas to make them relative, but that doesn't seem to work within conditional formats.

The issue right now is I am trying to apply conditional formats to a sheet I already constructed. I don't want to overight the formulas in the UL corner, so I am trying to copy and paste the conditional formatting only. Can't seem to figure out how.

I have applied conditional formatting to a cell using formulas and i want to copy that formatting to a new cell using similar formula but pointing to different cells. Is it possible to do so? I have tried to copy and paste special>formats, but that just copies the conditional formatting with the same formulas.

Sample: =IF($C$5/$C$295>$R$5,TRUE,FALSE)

I want to copy to $D$5/$D$295>$R$5,TRUE,FALSE) without having to paste the new formula in each time.

Is it possible to record a macro or write VBA to apply conditional formatting to certain columns of cells where there are exceptions/conditions for the different types of conditional formatting? If possible, can those exceptions/conditions be based on a specific type of formula?

See my DATA EXAMPLE picture linked below. On that example, Columns K-Q need conditional formatting but manager wants row 38 to be blue based on the fact that it is using a =SUM() formula. This represents one "part" out of 75 that could be on a given sheet, each "part" has a different number of sub-parts that are used. So I can't just highlight columns K-Q because of the occasional SUM row that needs to be blue.

The conditional formatting that I am currently using in Columns K-Q only apply to K3:Q37 and not to row 38 at all. I currently have conditional formatting on columns K-N, P-Q where when '=ISNUMBER(xx)' returns TRUE is white and when it returns FALSE is light orange. Column O uses '=ISTEXT(xx)' for the same colors. Manager doesn't want to copy paste that formatting and wants it setup as a Macro/VBA.

Is it possible to use conditional formatting to highlight cells that use formulas, as opposed to having constants?

I have a sheet that uses formulas to provide a default value, but you can type in a number if you want to replace the default. I want to be able to easily identify which ones use the default formula.

If I use functions like FIND, they look at the result of a formula, and not the formula itself.

I know I can write a UDF that will figure it out but I was wondering if there is some built-in way.

I have an excel file which consist of 12 sheets. The main sheet contain columns from A to EL and 556 rows.

At the moment, i have data on from column A to AI (we will add more data day by day). All data in main sheet are linking to another 4 sheets which basically using IF, VLOOKUP, and Conditional Formatting. My file originally was only 4.6MB in size.

However, after adding the formula (IF & Vlookup) and conditional formatting to the fourth sheet (number of columns is from A to BZ) then the file size increased from 4.6MB to 13.7MB.

My excel file also became very slow and i need to take off the Automatically Calculation option.

I am trying to send emails using a table in Xl2002 via outlook2002.

The code below is from Walkenbach's VBA Bible for Excel 2003 and I am getting "Uesr-type not defined" error with the 1st Dim statement.

Do I need a different statement such as set OutObj = blahblah or similar?? I have searche dthe net hi & lo for a solution to this problem & I do have JW's excel VBA bible.

Is it possible to conditional format cells with formulas in Excel 2007. It used to be possible in Excel 2003 but I'm struggling to find this in the new version.

I have a list of values in a named range called Categories. I use this list in a validation dropdown.

Can I do a CSE formula in the "formula is" field of the conditional formatting dialog such that if one of the values in the list is not chosen, I can color the cell?

I can do a CSE formula to test a list in a cell:

{=if(A1Categories, 1,0)}

This evaluates correctly. I am wondering if there is a way to make this work inside the conditional formatting window. I am trying to avoid the built in error validation msg box options and would love to use this. It's the most efficient way I can think of. I know I can do it by adding another column (and step) and then formatting on the value in there that has the CSE formula, but I thought I'd see if I could learn something new and if this was possible.

I have a spread sheet that shows dates when people have been assessed to be fit to carry out exercise I want to be able to put dates into a cell that are older than today e.g. 07.07.2013 and it turns the cell green then 11 months from that date the cell turns yellow and 12 months from date cell turns red. I can get conditional formatting to do this from the present date but not from older dates .

07,. 07. 2013 = Green 07.06. 2014 =Yellow 07.07.2014 = Red

I am using excel 2002 and I have found that when the workbook is shared and getting 2 or more users to open the workbook around the same time brings up a read only type prompt box for the 2nd ( and 3rd) user when the book hasn't fully opened for the 1st user/is still fully opening. Is this a limitation within excel or is there a way around this for example via vb code.

I know the more data a workbook has can cause it open a lot slower but is this the same for shared mode.

The formula is working well. The problem is I get the result for the first column of error even if the error is in more than one column. I want the result should display all the errors with the column number 1, 2, 3 (or with column name A, B, C etc). The total number of error is not required. The exact columns which have the error should be displayed. For example if the error exists in 3, 4 and 5 columns, I should get the result as "345Error" or "CDEError".I use excel 2002.

I've got Excel 2002. I am devising a sheet for checking work (sheet A) which feeds onto a separate sheet (sheet B). If I wanted to delete info from sheet A can I retain the info on sheet B? I want sheet A to be used repeatedly for each case but the info for every case to be recorded row by row on sheet B.

I'm trying to clear conditional formatting (icon set) that I was experimenting with, but no joy at all. The only function within the "Styles" section is Cell Styles -- conditional formatting & fornat as table choices are grayed-out.

I've tried to delete and re-enter the data, clear formats, clear all, copy and paste, format painter...nothing worked.

Excel 2002.I have data in columns A and B on sheet 3, starting at row 100. The total number of rows of data is variable (max is 50 rows). I want to take the values in A100:B100 and copy them from Sheet3 and paste values transposed to SheetTL Range C1:C2. I have started to write the following code but as you can see I will have to repeat the code upwards of 50 times. It seems I should be able to do a COUNT function to see how many rows of data exist and then somehow loop the code to copy the data from each subsequent row that many times, but how to put that together.

Sheets("Sheet3").Range("A100:B100").Copy Sheets("TL").Range("C1").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Transpose:=True ActiveSheet.PrintOut If Sheets("Sheet3").Range("A101") = "" Then

I have a workbook in which there is a sheet containing a table.

Excel 2002ABC123Specific Gravity6 Volt ValuesSOC40.0000.000Dead 51.1345.97010%61.1485.99020%71.1626.02030%81.1766.06040%91.1906.10050%101.1976.12055% 111.2046.14060%121.2116.16065%131.2186.18070%141.2256.20075%151.2336.23080%161.2416.26085% 171.2496.31290%181.2576.32095%191.2656.350100%SOC Chart

From another sheet I query this table using the LOOKUP function to obtain values from column C such as 25% 60% and so on. A typical query formula looks like this:

=LOOKUP(B2,'SOC Chart'!B4:'SOC Chart'!C19)

It would be nice if the fill color came along with the value.

I found in an old file that i triggered the macro by clicking a button! I would post a pic but i don't know how. How do I activate a macro by clicking a shape on the excel 2002 page?

Basically, I have an excel spreadsheet with different valued items for example,

TV Essential l £15 TV Essential extra l £20

Broadband Essential l £ 8 Broadband Extra l £12

I have options for TV, Broadband and Phone. At the bottom of the spreadsheet I want three drop down lists to pick what TV, Broadband and Phone package I want. For example: TV Essential, Broadband Extra and Phone Weekend. I can create the lists but I was wondering if there was anyway where, as you select the option on each of the lists, a running total will be created. So when TV Essential is selected £15 is added to a cell, say F20. Then when Broadband Extra is selected another £12 is added to cell F20. And as you select different ones in each list the total in F20 changes.

What I'm looking to do in Excel 2013 is have it so a specified cell loads an image based on the results of a range of cells.

For example: If cell B1 = red and cell B2 = up and cell B3 = yes then cell A5 shows image X.

But then have it be comprehensive enough to do If cell B1 = green and cell B2 = down and cell B3 = no then cell A5 shows image Y.

My hangups are trying to get different images to load in the same cell. Also, all the examples of this I've found are pulling from one cell where I need it to display an image based on the results of multiple cells.

I have a row of data in Excel 2013 that is roughly as follows :

Cell A2 - Date || B2 - Status || C2 - Description || D2 - Estimate Time || E2 - Comments

Cell B2 is a pick list of statuses --> Open || In Progress || Closed

The conditional rule I want to create is one where if B2 = 'Closed', format the text of the entire row (cell A2 to E2) to turn light blue.

I was successful in doing this --> basically highlighted A2 to E2; conditional formatting; new rule; use formula; $B$2 = "Closed"; format text color blue.

When I do this, now when cell B2 = Closed, the line turns blue.

The issue is I want this condition to apply to row 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 etc ... basically a multi-row list.

I highlight the cells (A2 ~ E2) and then grab the bottom right corner of E2 and drag down 5 rows (creating row for A3 / A4 / A5 / A6 / A7).

The issue is when I set B3 to Closed, nothing happens; likewise for B4 or B5 etc ...

When I set B2 to Closed, it changes itself and all the rows below to light blue.

This used to work in earlier versions of Excel, but I can not see to get this working in 2013.
