# Excel 2007 :: Conditional Format With Formulas?

Feb 27, 2013Is 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.

In Excel 2007, is there a way to format the top 3 values in each row of a pivottable?

View 1 Replies View RelatedIn Column D of my work book are a list of months, I'm trying to use conditional formatting to do the following:

Highlight green the cells in Column D where the month is due (i.e the month is now).

Highlight orange the cells that are one month passed the due month.

Highlight red the cells that are two or more months passed the due month.

I'm using Excel 2007.

I'm attempting something that I feel should be relatively easy using the conditional formatting icon sets (3 arrows coloured)

I have values in columns A and B. I simply want to compare the value in column B against that in A, and format column B accordingly

B > A (green arrow)

B = A (amber arrow)

B < A (red arrow)

The icon set rules only allow for > or >= conditions, and I can't get the desired results using the rules.

Excel 2007.

I'm a 2007 user. I am trying to conditional format a range of F1:J10, where F1 will be conditionally formatted relationally to A1. G1 is relational to B1. H2 relational to C2, etc., all the way down to J10 relational to E10. My conditional format formula in cell F1 is >A1*2 (will format F1 as orange). I want to be able to copy the conditional formatting over so the formula in J10 for example would be: >E10*2 (will format it orange).

I omit the "$" in the conditional format formula in an attempt to prevent it from being absolute. But every time I copy the conditional formatting over to the other cells, the formula within those cells remains identical to the formula in the original cell.

I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.

Col B - budget dollars

Col C - actual dollars

Row 10 - summation Cols B and C

When the budget is prepared the actual dollars in Col C are equal to the budget dollars for all items. For instance the formula =b2 is placed in cell C2. As time passes the user records actual dollars in Col C for each item by entering the actual amount directly into the cell. Actual dollars do not become known all at the same time, so that Col C will contain a mixture of formulas and entered numbers.

How can I highlight the cells in Col C that have entered numbers rather than formulas.

I´m having aproblem with Excel 2007 about Conditional Formatting. I have a row of Dates for example 02-01-2009 03-01-2009 04-01-2009 , etc in different columns.

Then what I want to do is use Conditional Formatting to Format cells on several rows below according to the day (if its weekend paint red, if not, dont do anything). I'm using the "Use a formula to determine which cells to format" and the condition is (supposing the cells with dates are A1 to C1)

=WEEKDAY(A1:C1) > 5 .

So with those 3 dates provided lets suppose Januar2nd is not a weekday, so the outputIwant is: Red White White, (Next Row) Red White White, etc for several rows.

Now what I think is not right is it only works for the row in which I have the cursor so its like: (Lets imagine I selected 3 rows on which I want to see that output) Red White White (The row in which the cursor is works fine), but the next row goes Red Red Red and the third the same.

Background info: I have developed a Hired Equipment Time Sheet with numerous formulas to auto populate and calculate various cells to minimize user impute requirements.

Can cell formulas be toggled on and off to allow manual impute of data rather than the formula automatically populating information in the cell if the need arises? If so, can this be done via a drop down pick? Also can or will the formula still be protected?

I am running Excel 2007.

I have set up a table and for ease of explanantion Column C has a formulas in it to add together the values found in Column A and B.

EG C3 foumula = "=sum(A3+B3)"

Now in cols d & e I have manually entered figures and in colum F I want to add up those figures so F3 should read "=sum(D3+E3)"

In the past I have always been able to just copy the cell C3 and paste it into F3 and the formula would automatically copy and offset the various cells to the correct cells for the new posiitoning.

However, for some reason when I copy the cell, it now pastes the value only into the pasted cell and does not copy the formula, if I click on paste special to try to just copy the formula I now get a pop up asking me if I want to paste as Unicode Text or Text.

I have no recollection of changing any settings.

Using Microsoft Excel 2007 and all of a sudden, my spreadsheets are not automatically calculating the formulas. It does not matter if I have other workbooks open or not. I still get the problem. It does not happen 100% of the time to make it even more complicated.

- Calulation set to auto in Excel Options.

- No VBA functions being used. I can the worksheet summing 1 + 1 and get the error periodically. It does not have to do with the spreadsheet being too complicated.

- Even if I can hit Ctrl-Alt-F9 to force the formulas to calculate, it won't work.

Suddenly realized that I can't paste formulas. When I copy/paste, it only pastes as values. When I copy and Paste Special, the only option is "Unicode Text". No option for formulas, formatting, or anything else. Excel 2007.

View 4 Replies View RelatedI have a lot of formulas that I don't want to be changed or deleted, but I still want the user to be able to enter data into the cells.

If I use "Protect sheet" I can't select a cell or enter something into it. I sure there is some setting I have to change, but I'm not sure what to select.

I'm using excel 2007

I am running Microsoft Excel 2007 on Windows XP. Right now, I have the standard macro set up that will replace formulas with their values. It's the standard macro that does this for the entire sheet:

Code:

Sub All_Cells_In_Active_WorkSheet_1()

With ActiveSheet.UsedRange

.Cells.Copy

.Cells.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues

.Cells(1).Select

End With

Application.CutCopyMode = False

End Sub

However, with this being a daily task, the issue is that this wipes the formulas out for future dates, which is obviously problematic. To be more specific:

I have one tab (HISTORICAL) with over 200 rows with each business day this year. Columns B through H will pull data from two other tabs (ENTRY1 and ENTRY2) that is entered daily, using a formula that tells Excel to only pull the data for the current date:

Code:

=IF(A224=ENTRY1!B1,ENTRY1!B2,0)

So each day, someone will open this sheet and input their data on the ENTRY1 and ENTRY2 tabs. These numbers will auto populate over to the HISTORICAL tab for that specific day.

Also on each day, someone else will open the sheet and go to the HISTORICAL tab and run the macro that converts the formulas on that sheet to the value.

I want to be able to run the macro only for the row with the current date (and any date before will be fine since those will already be converted anyway).

So, taking today for example, when I run the macro, I want it to convert the data only in the 11/8/2011 and previous rows, but NOT for the 11/9/2011 and later rows.

I am working with Excel 2007 and have an occurring problem when I resize a table. Some of my forumlas copy to the new rows, while others do not. How can I ensure all my formulas copy to the newly created rows. Also sometime when they do copy to the new row an #REF! in the formula where the range should be , yet if I copy and paste the formula from the above row it works.

Here is an example of one of my Formulas Note Sheet1!$J$3:$J$500 is also a table Called Data

=SUMPRODUCT((Sheet1!$J$3:$J$500)*(Sheet1!$A$3:$A$500=$A14&DP$4)) and this is how it is inserted into a new row

=SUMPRODUCT((Sheet1!#REF!)*(Sheet1!#REF!=$A15&DP$4))

Excel 2007 copy/paste is bringing over formula results and not the formula (e.g. Ctrl-c "=A1+B1", Ctrl-v "3").

I've validated my calculation options are set to automatic and that the sheet format is "general", which I saw on older posts.

Perhaps related, when I paste special, I get a different box which only allows me to paste as Unicode Text or Text.

What I have attached is spreadsheet I've built to quickly generate an army list for a tabletop game. Anyone can click on the Force Organization Slot (FOS) and choose the type of unit and from there, select the specific unit name attached to that FOS. Each individual unit has a list of options/upgrades currently attached to the sheet from cells AD through AX and the points cost listed next to each upgrade.

For example, when selecting the Rhino unit from the Dedicated_Transport FOS, there should be 4 drop down lists of selectable upgrades (Storm Bolter, Hunter-Killer Missile, Dozer Blade, and Extra Armor). Currently, I have only named the ranges for the Rhino and Razorback units in order to get this working properly without having to go through the entire list of units and change names/create ranges/ect.

What I'm aiming to do is to create an individual drop down list that is directly related to the Unit Name cell in order to populate a complete and selectable upgrade list for each unit. I have played around with some functions that work in the spreadsheet (see cells X10:X12) but do not work properly with Data Validation.

Oddly enough, when I enter this formula under Data Validation:

=IF($A$3<>$AD$1:$AD$182,VLOOKUP(A3,Options,2,FALSE),"")

I do not get an error, yet the drop down list does not allow me to select anything as I thought it would.

I've got a main workbook (excel 2007) with a main spreadsheet where i group all the information (text and values) about brands and models linked to 10 workbooks (brands) with several spreadsheets (one spreadsheet=one model).

On the main spreadsheet I've got 16 lines for each model which they have the follow formulas, wich are linked to other workbook / spreadsheet (Mar/Gato)

1)

IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$3:$CE$78;3;FALSE));"";VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$3:$CE$78;3;FALSE))

and will return text values

2)

IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$3:$CE$78;82;FALSE));"";VLOOKUP(V844;[Mar.xlsx]G!$A$3:$CE$78;82;FALSE))

And will return number values

3)

IF(M844<>"";HLOOKUP($V$3;[Mar.xlsx]Gato!$A$2:$CE$78;2;FALSE);"")

And will return number values. The return value (;2 goes from 2 to 16.

This process repeats to all the 10 workbooks e and 250 spreadsheets

4) Table Array of the model spreadsheet

With regard to formula 1) and 2)

The problem is that the table array (on the model spreadsheet) could have diferent dimensions (becouse the launch year of the model) like this:

A$3:$CE$78 (2009 - Launch year)

A$3:$BR$78 (2010 - Launch year)

A$3:$BE$78 (2011 - Launch year)

A$3:$AR$78 (2012 - Launch year)

A$3:$AE$78 (2013 - Launch year)

And the return column (value) for formula 1) is always ;3;

And the return column (value) for formula 2) are like this:

;82; (2009 - Launch year)

;69; (2010 - Launch year)

;56; (2011 - Launch year)

;43; (2012 - Launch year)

;30; (2013 - Launch year)

;17; (2014 - Launch year)

The difference between above values is 13, it corresponds 12 months and the total column (12+1)

For the formula 3) the table array its the same, the only difference is instead of starting A$3, starts in A$2

5) The update of the formulas 1) 2) 3) for 2014

I'm doing this manually... The formulas are updated like this,for 2013, I've got table array A$3:$AE$78 and the return value (;17, then for 2014 i will have a table array A$3:$AR$78 and the return value will be (;30, and so on

5) Change the network drive

For other reasons I've to change my files to another network drive, something like this:

Q:KPI2014Main File

6) Main Goal

I was thinking using Excel's regular Find and Replace feature to change:

- The network drive designation

- the table array area

- The return value

But I don't know if this process ( Find and Replace) is safe and clean. I'm doing this manually and I've got on the main worbook/sheet 4000 lines with 3 formulas its 12000 operations!I'm on the 350 line....!

The main goal is to update the all formulas (links) to "brand" workbooks and inside "model" spreadsheets automatically with a macro.

I am using excel 2007 and when I change cells my formulas do not automatically refresh. I have set it to automatic and the calculations will not refresh. How I can force a calculation. I did the control alt f9 and nothing seems to work. Any macro that can force all calculations.

View 4 Replies View RelatedI'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'm using Excel 2007 and I'm a VBA novice.

Problem: The macro will be assigned to a command button and will be used by laypersons when they finish filling in data on a worksheet in Workbook 1. The sheet contains maybe 30 columns and 50 rows with a mix of fixed values and values generated by Vlookup and Indirect formulas. I need to copy the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2. Workbook 2 will be for archival purposes so I want to convert all formulas to fixed values. The catch is dealing with some cells that contain hyperlinks to PDF files...

Current Solution: I currently do this with a macro that moves/copies the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2, it then selects all cells in the new sheet in Workbook 2, copies all cells, then pastes-special "as values" to the exact same cell locations. This works great for me since the cell formatting and data in the sheet are VERY irregular and I have merged cells all over the place. This method keeps the exact formatting I need maintain:

ActiveSheet.Copy After:=Workbooks("Workbook2.xlsx").Sheets(1)

ActiveSheet.Cells.Select

Selection.Copy

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _

:=False, Transpose:=False

Application.CutCopyMode = False

The problem is that a few of the cells have hyperlinks with "friendly names" and I lose the hyperlinks when I convert to values. The hyperlinks are not inserted directly, they are created by a formula, =HYPERLINK("N:Filepath"&C16&".PDF", "Click_For_PDF"), and the row and column that contains the hyper link will vary for each sheet I want to migrate from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2 using this macro. I want to keep the hyperlink active with the clickable friendly name in Workbook 2.

Possible Solution: I'm open to all types of solutions, but is there a way to essentially use my existing macro but AFTER converting to values with paste-special, go back to the original sheet in Workbook 1 that still contains formulas (or maybe a temporary duplicate sheet I migrate to Workbook 2?), search for all cells with a "value" of "Click_For_PDF", copy ONLY those cells and paste (normal) into the corresponding cell locations in the sheet in Workbook 2 that now contains fixed values? ALL of my hyperlinks have the friendly name "Click_For_PDF" so it should be an easy way to identify the hyperlink cells. The cell location of the hyperlink copied in Workbook 1 needs to carry over to Workbook 2 and I said before, the row and col vary with every sheet I want to archive with this macro.

I am working on word documents that has financial numbers on them. I am copying word pages to excel to calculate the numbers by using formulas and etc. I will cut to the chase; is there a way or a macro to insert into an excel template workbook(.xltx) when we open the template there will be a command button to select the word document (which we want to copy its pages) to excel sheets. When a new page begins a new sheet will be created and the page will be pasted on the new sheet.

It is not important if it has to have a command button to select the word document it is ok to run the macro and select the word document and it does not has to populate sheets according to length of word document (I can create lost of free sheets on the template)

The main idea is to gain the time I spend on copying the word document to excel sheets. Some documents can be very long (100 pages). I am using MS Office 2007.

I triend to export data but excel does not allow me to select word documents.

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.

I am trying to find a way in Excel 2007 to convert the date from US format to UK format, I tried to change it by using [right click=>Format cell=>Select Date=>Select the first option in Type:*14-03-01=>OK], but I doesn't work , the attached file are presenting the date in US format.

View 10 Replies View RelatedI am using someone else's old spreadsheet.

This spreadsheet uses a custom format of ##-##-## for a date such as 012214 prints as 1-22-14.

I need to convert this into normal short date format such as 3/24/2014 because there are four columns of dates in the spreadsheet and we have to do some addition and subtraction from one column to another.

I am using Excel 2007.

I'm using Excel 2007 and am trying to set up 3 columns of drop-down lists each dependent on the choice selected in the previous column's selection. It seems like it would be easy to figure out but I can't seem to do it.

I've already set up the arrays for the lists and "named" them but can't get the cell to be formatted automatically according to the previous columns selection.

I have data in several columns going left to right. In column N I subtract column H from column I and then in column O I subtract column I from column J. I then use conditional formatting to indicate whether column N is greater than 45 and column O is less than 120, using different formats for each. If the cell value does not meet the condition then there is no conditional formatting used in that cell.

I want to subtotal each column to indicate the amount over or under 45 in column N and over and under 120 in column O and I would like to know if I can do it using the colors in each cell. Most rows do not meet either condition but a few rows do meet both conditions and I don't think sorting and subtotaling is not going to give me what I want.

I have about 7,000 rows in this worksheet and I am going to be removing lines and then maybe adding them back and I would like to track the balances as the data gets moved around. I can use Window Watch for that.

I am using Excel 2007, don't know how to write VBA and would really like a solution that does not use VBA.

I select the date from drop down calendar in excel and linked with one cell. when i use the date in vlookup formula it does not work due to linked cell date format.
