Excel 2003 :: How To Use Conditional Formatting Across Multiple Columns

Jul 14, 2014

I am using Excel 2003. I have a spread sheet and I am trying to use conditional formatting. But I can't figure out how to use conditional formatting across multiple columns and so I have been doing each column individually which has been kind of a hassle. I also am trying to figure out how to put in a formula so that every occurrence of a certain text will show up a certain color. I know that I can just do "cell value is", "equal to" and click on the cell, but the information in this spread sheet is organized alphabetically and is going to be added to frequently therefore every time I add information it re-organizes. This then messes up my conditional formatting because the text value that was in the cell gets bumped up or down.

Excel 2003 :: Repeated Value Conditional Formatting?

Feb 16, 2012

I'm working in Excel 2003.

I'm looking for a way to use conditional formatting to flag a cell in a list if the user enters a value that already exists in that list. Just trying to keep any values from being entered twice.

I understand how to set cond form to flag a cell, but not what criteria to enter to activate the formatting when a value has already been used.

Some sort of =IF(COUNT...?) function?

Nov 1, 2010

I made a planner for shared use.

Is there any way users can cut and paste while keeping the Conditional Formatting of the source cells intact? It is the same as copy-paste and then delete the source cell contents after copying.

I was wondering if it is possible to have cells formatted based on the presence of an autofilter? I have a large worksheet, and to clean it up I would like to make the entire sheet (minus the category headers) invisible. Then, when the user applies a filter, the cells become visible.

Excel 2003 :: Font Size Dependent On Cell Value (not Using Conditional Formatting)

Nov 28, 2012

Excel 2003.

I am creating a heat map using two variables from a questionnaire: firstly the number of people impacted by a question; and secondly, the level of the impact. Respondents are asked to give these values in two adjacent cells. These are then multiplied to give a weight eg 1000 people x level 3 impact = 3000. I have used Conditional Formatting to colour the cell according to the impact level (0 = none - white (default), 1 = moderate - tan, 2 = significant - orange, 3 = high - red). What I want to do is then change the font size to give an indication of the number of people impacted, eg 1 - 1000 font 8, 1001 - 3000 font 12, 3001 - 8000 font 16, 8000 - 2000 font 24 etc. The size of font and colour will then represent the number of respondents and their impact.

I can't use Conditional Formatting as the value of 3000 could be derived from 1000 people at level 3 (red), or 3000 people at level 1 (tan). Is there another way of setting the font size depending on the cell value, eg by VBA?

Excel 2003 :: Conditional Formatting Not Working And Cannot Change Colour Of A Cell Or Writing?

Sep 23, 2013

Excel 2003

On one of our computers at work, Excel is acting especially strange. The conditional formatting in Excel on one of our computers is not working. In addition, we cannot fill a cell with any color or change the color of the writing. We can click a color for the letters and type it in, but immediately after another cell is highlighted, the writing goes black again. When we try to highlight multiple cells with the cursor, the cells are black instead of the normal color. This happens to not just spreadsheets that are new, but existing spreadsheets on our shared drive from only this one computer as well. No other computers are affected this way. All other computers show the spreadsheets fine and do not have any functionality issues.

Complicated Conditional Formatting With Multiple Columns?

Apr 22, 2014

I have what I think is a pretty complicated issue. At my job, we have a running and constantly changing list of jobs that we have to work on throughout the day. The job management system is really unwieldy and it’s often hard to tell what exactly we have to do today and what can wait until tomorrow. So a few times a day, I export the list to an excel doc, which I’m trying to set up with conditional formatting to highlight as green the stuff for today, ghost back what can wait, and leave white and blank the cells that don’t have any info in them. I but the attachment system wasn't working for me, so I can't provide the example I've been working on.

So far, I’ve managed to set up a formula in the conditional formatting that takes into account column C, but I need to take into account information in columns B, C, and D to determine if the job line should be highlighted or dimmed. Column B is the job's title and it is just text, column C is the Begin date, and column D is the due date. here’s what I need the conditional formatting to do.

If the begin date in column C is Today at 9:00am or earlier, and the due date in column D is today, I need to highlight the column. I managed to figure out the first part of this formula, but don’t know how to keep the line from hilighting if the due date is tomorrow: =$C2<=TODAY()+TIME(9,0,0)

The second part is that I need to hilight jobs that begin and are due today (have today’s date in columns C and D), regardless of what time they have if the task title in column B starts with “Rework Request from PS” or “Rework Request from QA"

Ideally, I’d like to change the text color to something nearly white to sort of hide the jobs that don’t need to be done today, and I figured that part out based on the formula I did manage: =$C2>=TODAY()+TIME(9,0,1)

apply this to the whole sheet so I can paste the report into it a few times a day without having to rewrite the formulas in a new sheet every time, and the number of items does change throughout the day. However when I do, the empty cells turn green as if they’re due today, and I can’t figure out how make them stay blank.

Conditional Formatting For Multiple Columns And Rows?

Mar 28, 2014

I have data in cells A2 - N2 and cell O2 is currently blank. I am trying to set conditional formatting where if O2 has a value entered into it, it will conditional format A2 - N2 and highlight the entire row red.

I tried a formula like =O2"" but that does not work. Also tried a few other things but no luck.

Also, once the formula is set, what is the best way to apply the conditional formatting to rows 3 - 30. I tried the format painter tool but that seems to want to extend the formatting range from rows 3-30 and not just per row.

Excel 2003 :: Extracting And Collating Data From Multiple Columns

Apr 27, 2014

The link to my file is: [URL] ........

I am using excel 2003.

My query goes like this:

I need to find out "total lifted quantity"(i.e. the sum of 'first state lifted quantity'+'second state lifted quantity'+'third state lifted quantity') for each "state" for each "size" and each "grade".

However when I am applying a pivot table (as seen in Sheet1) it is not giving data in lucid form. I don't want to split the data for three states in three different tables (as seen in Sheet 4).

Conditional Formatting - Duplicate Rows Based On Multiple Columns?

Apr 8, 2014

I'm looking for a Conditional Formatting formula that will check two columns before highlighting the duplicate rows. I need it to be conditional formatting because I know nothing about writing macros or vba (what-ever that is?). Data is entered into Columns A, B, and C. I need to check both column A and C before it highlights the duplicates, based on those two columns. (The format only unique or duplicate values checks only one column.) I have attached an example, but this is just an example, as I have hundreds of lines to go through on the original. (For this example, Row 2 and Row 7 are the duplicates I need highlighted.)

Excel 2003 :: How To Create Pivot Table With Multiple Columns Each Month

Apr 4, 2014

I am trying to create a Chart from a Pivot Table. I want the Chart to show my projects and present each months amounts side-by-side comparing (Plan, Actual, Forecast) data each month for the calendar year.

I am trying to figure out how to generate the pivot table showing multiple projects so that the data is grouped by month comparing (Plan, Actual, Forecast) data. Projects are listed down the Rows while months Jan-Dec are along the columns. Each month has 3 columns because the second row contains header for the data sets of Plan, Actual & Forecast. (see sample below) When I try to create a Pivot Table, It shows multiple month fields (Jan, Jan2, Jan3, Feb, Feb2, Feb3) instead of a single month.

Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting With Multiple Criteria?

May 16, 2013

I am trying to do a conditional formatting based on the result in one cell but it needs to add up multiple cells first to determine which conditional format it needs to use. I am not sure whether I need to do a formula conditional format or whether to use cell is greater than with =sum() in it. I have tried both but neither seem to be working correctly. I have attached an example of the spreadsheet and the conditions I am trying. I am using 2010 version.

Basically, the closing amount for Monday in prod 1 (cell c4), needs to display in red if sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4) & Fri (R4) is greater than that value or display in amber if the sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4).

I need to complete the same for the whole column for Monday (col C) for each appropriate product. Then the same for column B but this will sum different cells but the principal will be the same.

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting On Multiple Cells?

Apr 17, 2012

I'm using 2007 and want to add conditional formatting to multiple cells.

Say I have 3 columns and 10 rows of data (A1:10 ; B1:10 ; C1:10). I want to add an icon set to everything in columns B and C based on a comparison with the figure on their immeidate left. So B1 is compared to A1, C1 to B1 etc.

When I do it though it compares everything to A1 (formula in the Conditional Formating is =$A$1 and it won't let me remove the $'s). It looks to me like I can't do it and have to add the formatting to every cell indiviually (which is quite a lot).

Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting - Highlight Values Based On 2 Columns Of Numerical Data

Conditional Formatting In 2003

Jan 7, 2010

I use Excel 2003. I want to do a conditional formatting on a cell (e.g. A1), which value is from an If() formulas. The value could be a percentage or a text DataNAvail. The conditional formatting on A1 is based on another cells value (e.g. B1), which is also a percentage.

Since in Excel 2003 there are only three options for conditional formatting. I used two for green (A1 greater than B1) and yellow (formulas in A1 equals AND(A1<B1, A1>=B1*0.75)). I want to set A1 to red when its value <B1*0.75 or is DataNAvail. Since they are not the same type, I dont know how to do it.

Conditional Formatting Blues In 2003

Jul 2, 2007

I am having a fit trying to get this darn spreadsheet to do what I need it to do. I have to flag rolling dates on a spreadsheet (i.e. if a training date is to occur every three years, I need for it to change colors according to the date given - like if it is past three years, then it needs to turn red. if the date is in the next six months, it needs to turn green). I have already coded the spreadsheet to change dates every day, but when I use the EDATE function in the conditional response and try to copy it to the cells in the rest of the colum, it won't work.

2003 Conditional Formatting From Other Worksheet Value

Aug 18, 2009

I have a series of tabs with data, 25 columns by 600 rows, all with numbers. A cell should be red and lined out if its' corresponding cell on the very last tab is less than 50. I've tried to name range the area on the last tab (RawBuyers) and use it in a Formula Is CF on the first worksheet, but I get errors.

I'm seeking help with a CF formula that I can apply to each tabs data range.

I've seen threads similar to my issue, so I apologize if this is redundant (but nothing I've found is doing the trick.)

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting And Adding Text To Cell Based On Multiple Cells

May 31, 2013

I'm using Excel 2007. I would prefer to stay away from the scripting side of the house if possible. This is basically a 3 day forcast weather chart. The top is the actual weather data, the bottom portion is a color coded reflection of how the weather affects various things.

This product is created in excel, but will be embedded into a powerpoint. It will be updated daily. Here is what I would like. I want the color chart at the bottom to update automatically based on the data I enter above. I have a grasp that I can update the color through conditional formatting, although im not exactly sure what that will look like with all of those cells.

I also figured out that I can insert the letters in those lower cells with something similar to " =IF(C6>90, "T", "") " which would put in a 'T' for Temperature when the temperature got above a certain degree.

I run into a problem when I have multiple factors affecting a single cell. For instance on the example in day 2 of my image. Personnel are affected by Temperate AND UV Index. How would I set up that cell to pull that information from both of those cells and display it accordingly? I would prefer the letters to stay separated by the comma, but I could live without that. The default cell color will be green, with the potential to be yellow or red. I left a few examples of possible situations on day 2 and 3.

Excel 2003 :: Drag Without Losing Source Formatting

Sep 24, 2013

This refers to Excel 2003. I will be dragging contents of cells to another place on the same worksheet. To make myself clear, the text must be moved from the source cells to the destination cells, leaving the format of both source and destination cells - such as borders and fill - unchanged.

NOTE: I know that I can copy the cells and return to the destination cells to delete the content that I want to move. This wastes time when doing many drags and drops.

NOTE: I know that I can paste special, pasting the Values only. Again, this is a lot of extra clicking or keyboard shortcuts. Again this wastes time when dragging and dropping many times.

Each user is expected to carry out a task on each row of the data held in each worksheet (research, call, update etc) and each task (Option 1-5) is assigned a value. Each user is expected to meet a certain level of points per day to calculate productivity.

I am looking for a sumproduct along the lines of the summary sheet attached but mine just takes one sheet into consideration and I need one for all sheets.
