Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting Empty Cells Based On Full Cells?

Nov 17, 2011

Working in Excel 2007. I am using excel for a data log (basically) and want it to format all empty cells in a row yellow if there is data in column A

Basically, If i have a value in A2, I want any empty cell between B2-G2 to be filled in yellow (as an idicator to the inputter that the cell needs to be completed).

there is already conditional formatting on these cells, which i want to maintain for the non-empty cells. I also have "0" as a value, so I couldn't use the basic conditional formatting setting it =0, it highlighted cells with $0.00, which i do not want.

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 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 2007 :: Count Cells Colored By Conditional Formatting

Oct 30, 2012

I am applying conditional formatting on a range of cells. I have 2 conditions to color cells in different colors. Once I enter data, cells get colored corectly according to conditions. What I want is to count how many cells are colored by conditional formatting.

I tried using VBA --- Evaluate formula for each cell and count if TRUE.

I observed, for Excel 2007, as the condition is applied on the range, I expect the formula to be changed dynamically for each cell with appropriate addresses, like for A1, if am referring to cell C1, for A2 it should automatically refer to C2.

And excel takes care of this cells are colored correctly,however, when I try to check the 'FormatCondition' in VBA, I get only one formula for entire range. SO I can not use evaluate to find if the condition is satisfied or not ?

Conditional Formatting Of Empty Cells

Jun 27, 2012

Is there anyway to use conditional formatting to do the following:

If a cell has value and a cell below it doesn't have value, then highlight both cells. However, as soon as the blank cells are not blank, then both cells would clear the highlight.

In the example below, cells A1 and A2 on column A would be highlighted. Cells B3 and B4 on column B would be high lighted. Whenever cell A2 is filled in, then the highlight would clear. This logic would apply from column A through column Z.

Code:
A1 Description 1 B1 Description 8
A2 blank cell B2 Description 9
A3 Description 3 B3 Description 10
A4 Description 4 B4 blank cell

I tried using two conditional formatting (one to high light and one to clear) but doesn't seem to work.

Excel 2010 :: 3+ Conditional Formatting Rules For Cell Range Based On Formula From Other Cells

Feb 5, 2013

how to apply conditional formatting via VBA to a range of cells based on input from another range of cells. Obviously this would be easy in Excel 2010, but I'm still using 2003 at the office and it needs to stay in this format to be readable by other users:

For cells M8:EK8, my conditional formatting
condition 2: Formula Is =AND($E$8>=M2,(($E$8-$D$8)>=(N2-$M$2))), color index is 40
condition 3: Formula Is =AND($F$8<=M2,$G$8>=M2), color index is 39
I want to add:
condition 4: Formula Is =AND($H$8<=M2,$I$8>=M2), color index is 40
condition 5: Formula Is =AND($J$8<=M2,$K$8>=M2), color index is 39
and so on

The cells in the range M8:EK8 are blank, they only get colored based on input added to D8 to K8. If there is no input, then the cells should be uncolored.

Conditional Formatting To Check If Adjacent Cells Are Empty?

Jul 18, 2014

I've got a list and I need to check if the adjacent cells for a column are empty or not, and if both are empty then format to a certain color. I have a solution but don't know how to implement it into a format fit for conditional formatting.

I have this in the new rule section of conditional formatting

=IF(AND(ISBLANK(OFFSET(I4,0,-1)),(ISBLANK(OFFSET(I4,0,1))),(ISBLANK(I4)=FALSE)),TRUE,FALSE)

If conditional formatting would allow it I would simply change I4 to the entire range, I am very much confused as to how to format this cell to work with conditional formatting. (I4 is the first cell in the list)

Something else is that if I change I4 to I5 or something then moves all the highlighted cells around, and to top it off the first few cells which should obviously be highlighted aren't, even though the rest of the cells which should be highlighted are.

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting Based On Two Previous Values

Feb 19, 2013

I'm creating an excel document that tracks the amount of time someone has (in months) in the program. Certain residents are able to 'fast track' if they meet conditions, and I am trying to create this spreadsheet so that anyone who looks at it can tell who qualifies (and when).

The issue I'm having is with conditional formatting, because I don't know how to do it with mutliple conditions.

Column C is their previous time (months) in the program
Column D is their current time (months) in the program
Column E is their total time in the program (Sum C+D)

Coumn E is what I would like to format, based on the following rules set out in the program manual:

If previous time is 9 months or more, a resident is eligible to fast track after 6 months current time (format green).
If previous time is less than 6 months, a resident is eligible to fast track after 9 months current time (format green).

I understand that their is an odd gap - but these are the rules currently set out by the program manual, which is what I have to follow.

I'm using Excel 2007 - if that changes anything.

Conditional Formatting To Format Cells On Several Rows Below According To The Day In 2007

Sep 8, 2009

Im 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.

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting Dates Based On Number Of Days That Have Passed?

Nov 22, 2011

I am trying to figure-out how to set up conditional formatting of dates in a column (e.g. Date Submitted) and have these dates, and/or cell, change color as time progresses. I have Excel 2007.

For instance I have an application submitted on 11/20/2011 in a cell. I would like to have the date change color (Yellow) after 30 days have passed.

Then do the same except change to Red after 60 days have passed the date.

I searched the forums and did not find this particular problem. I of course may have missed it too...

My guess was to try "$A$1

Conditional Formatting Based On Sum Of Pairs Of Cells

Nov 14, 2013

I have created a table that has working hours of staff members over many weeks. Week number as column headings (1 to 52) and staff name as Row headings. E.g a row may be

John Smith, 37, 37, 37, 37, 64 (commas to show seperate cells)

How would I go about using conditional formatting so that the formatting changes according to the sum of the values in each pair of cells?

I need to add the total hours of every two weeks for some staff and change the fill colour of both cells accordingly to highlight which weeks staff have worked too many/few hours.

So (B1+C1) would be a pair, the total would decide which fill colour is used on both B1 and C1, and then (D1+E1) would be the next pair and so on.

I have tried using 'a formula to determine which cells to format' and placing =(B1 + C1) = 74 and making it fill the cells green but this appears to be doing (B1+C1) as the first pair and then (C1+D1) as the second and changing the format for the first cell only.

Conditional Formatting Based On Another Cells Contents?

Sep 19, 2012

I'd like to format (colour fill) C1 when H1 contains the word "Bills"

I've tried to "use a formula to determine which cells to format" but it keeps using absolute references ($H$1).

Ideally I'd like to apply the "format" to the entire column C.

I did think I'd be able to use OFFSET but it's not working.

Conditional Formatting - Based On Another Cells Contents

Apr 27, 2007

I have a worksheet that I've applied conditional formatting to which works very nicely apart from when I use the formatting and apply it to a cell based on the contents of another.

What I don't understand is when I put a formula in cell b1 to read =$a1="yes" and format accordingly it works. So when I type in "YES" in to cell a1 ,cell b1 is highlighted. When I type in "NO" the B1 cell isn't highlighted which is what i would expect. IF however I delete what ever is in cell A1 the cell B1 is still highlighted.

Excel 2007 :: Copying Conditional Format To Multiple Cells

Nov 5, 2013

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.
