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.

I export data into Excel format from a corporate reporting tool. 1 column includes a product description in text format, however, due to the many different products I need to count the number of cells based on a single word in the product description.

Hypothetical Example:

The report contains various information about vehicles. The product description exports to a single column and may include "Ford Fusion", "Ford Focus", "Chevrolet Malibu", "Chevrolet Impala", etc. I only need to count how many cells contain information about Fords and Chevrolets. The model detail is not needed.

I'm able to count if I enter the complete and exact make & model description, but want to avoid this due to the large quantity of products.

I'm using Excel 2007, on Windows 7, 64 Bit Enterprise

I am wondering how can I count different color condition color cells?

I am currently using this UDF,

Code:

Function ColorFunction(rColor As Range, rRange As Range, Optional SUM As Boolean)

Dim rCell As Range

Dim lCol As Long

Dim vResult

[Code]...

However, this code count the entire conditioned color cells that I have. What I want is for the code to count two different colors within the same column range (like B1:B10). For example, I have 3 red color cells in range B1:B10 and 7 green color cells in range B1:B10. So, I want it to count 3 and 7 seperately rather than giving me the total of 10.

Important Note: As it is a conditioned coloring, there is no fixed coloring as to which cell will have the red or green since it is based on conditions.

One last time, I am using Excel 2007.

I'm using excel 2007, here's what I need.

I want to count the number of cells in a range that have text in them (any text at all) but not count them if they have numbers in them or are blank. How would this formula be written?

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 ?

I have a .csv open in Excel 2007 that looks like the following

Code:

1 566

1 566

1 566

2 341

2 341

3 566

3 566

3 566

3 566

...

There is a one-to-one relationship between Column A and B, but B is not unique (but can only take a small set of valid values). I wish to query how many id's (Column A) contain a particular property (Column B). If the example above ended before the "...", I would like to get as the output:

Code:

566 2

341 1

because the property 566 is owned by two id's (1 and 3) and the property 341 is only owned by the id 2.

I am working on a sheet that will copy a specified number of sheets, rename them, set a cell within the equal to a cell from another sheet and (the problem) set cells on my input sheet equal to cells in the newly copied and renamed sheets.

I want the cells in sheet "Data Input" to look something like "='newsheet'E26"

I can make it return the actual number in the cell and return the formula in the cell, but not make the cell in "Data Input" reference the cell in the new book.

Here is what I have:

Code:

Sub CopySheetsTest()

Dim i As Integer

Dim wks As Worksheet

[Code]....

Everytime I save my workbook, I get a dialog box that says:

"A formula in this worksheet contains one or more invalid references. Verify that your formulas contain a vlid path, workbook, range name, and cell reference."

First off, it say's "this" worksheet no matter what worksheet is active.

Usually the culprit is a screwed up name that has a #REF in it somewhere. Not this time. All of the formulas appear to be working fine.

Is there an audit feature that will find the errors for me? (Excel 2007)

I am using Excel 2007 in Windows XP. I am trying to change the worksheet referenced in a formula from the label of the worksheet to the index of the sheet. I want to use this macro in multiple workbooks, and the relevant sheets have different names but are all in the same position.

I used "record macro" to get the structure of my code. It gave me the line:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM('8Nov11'!R[13]C[-4]:R[108]C[-4])"

I want to change that '8Nov11' to the 3rd worksheet from the left, so something like:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM(ThisWorkbook.Sheets(3)!R[13]C[-4]:R[108]C[-4])"

I can't get this to work, and I can't find the syntax for this anywhere. I've tried with and without quotes, exclamation points, changing to A1 notation and using "Range," "Sheets," "Worksheets," "Item(3)", and many other combinations, but haven't gotten it right.

Most of the errors I get are "Runtime Error 1004: Application-defined or object-defined error."

I am running Excel 2010 and Windows 7.

I have a form with a main list box and several other list boxes. I drag and drop records from the main list box to the others. When I drop a record onto one of the list boxes, a corresponding worksheet is updated with the same record. This works just fine.

The problem I have is:I close and re-open the form after having added some dataDrag/Drop a record to the list boxThe worksheet won't find the first empty rowExample: If the worksheet already contains 4 rows of data, I have to drag/drop 5 times before the fifth row will be updatedI would like to drop the data the first time and have the first blank row updated

Notes:

1.) I have tried variations of "xlUp", "xlDown", and SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell) in the "Worksheets("Monday")... line of code; all to no avail.

2.) The cells contain formatting (borders)

Here is the relevant code:

Code:

'Copy items from the list box to the worksheet

For intI = 1 To ListBox2.ListCount

For intJ = 1 To ListBox2.ColumnCount

If IsEmpty(Worksheets("Monday").Cells(intI + 1, intJ)) Then

Worksheets("Monday").Cells(intI + 1, intJ).Value = ListBox2.List(intI - 1, intJ - 1)

End If

Next intJ

Next intI

How to Lock Individual Cells in a Worksheet excel 2007 .... i.e.

A2:A8

I want this selected area locked with password.

Here is my situation:

I created one worksheet called: Assumptions. In this worksheet I have 6 different columns representing 6 different cases.

I have completed the first case in a different worksheet called: WL. I would like to copy this case/worksheet WL and be able to change all the reference cells used in case#1: WL to case#2: FA. So all the cells used in my Assumptions worksheet were in the B columns for case 1: WL, for case 2: FA they will all be in the C column, same row, different column.

Any quick way to do the changes?

My case #1 worksheet as over 10 000 formulas, I really don't want to change each and every formula.

I was thinking there was a way to highlight ALL the reference cells used in my Assumption worksheet, so I would have had to drag from B to C cells, only 50 cells. But I can't find it.

Ok I am using Excel 2007. I want to copy 4 cells from a row on sheet 1 to sheet 2 based on value in first cell in row. Example if cell a13 > 0 then copy row 13, cells b13 thru e13 only to first available row in sheet two but starting from row 12 on sheet two. Because sheet 2 has title information at the top from row 1-12.

I would rather not have to use a button to do it, would like it to do it as data is entered in sheet 1.

I am using Excel 2007 with a WIN XP OS…. My objective is to color code each cell in Column F within each sub-group based on the following instructions:

1) Column F contains a percentage…. Each sub-group in Column F totals 100%.... Each sub-group is separated as shown on the enclosed sample.

2) Starting with the highest percentage, followed by the next highest, (etc.), I want to sum each subsequent cell until reaching a target threshold (total sum) of 62%.... All cells in this grouping to be highlighted “yellow”.

3) Once the 62% target threshold is reached, the very next highest subsequent cell percentage is highlighted “light olive”…. If there is a tie, the lower number shown in Column E serves as the tie-breaker.

4) All remaining cells within the sub-group are highlighted “light brown” including those denoted by 0%.

5) Finally, if the cell is blank and absent of a % call out, then no highlight is required.

I process a daily spreadsheet having typically in excess of 1000 rows and in turn, I’m looking for a method to automate the color coding….

1 workbook, 2 worksheets (or tabs). On tab 1, I want a formula/alert that tells the user if any duplicate values exist in Column A of tab 2

Tab 2, Column A, has Unique ID's (6 digit numeric values)

The user manually inputs the ID's on new rows in Column A

Row 1 is reserved and in use for something else

Row 2 is my header, so cell A2 says "ID"

Row 3-623 currently contain unique ID's

When the user inputs a new ID into cell A624, then they return to Tab 1, I want my formula/alert on Tab 1 to tell the user that they have duplicates in Column A of tab 2. I know the Conditional Formatting, but if the user copies in 100 new values, they won't necessarily see the highlighted cells. My tab 1 is my "checks and balances" and the last place the user is suppposed to look to ensure that they haven't created any duplicate ID's. If the user sees a warning message that says duplicates exist, then I'll tell them that they need to look at column A (for cells that have been conditionally highlighted).

One issue that I'm running into with the conditional highlighting is that I want cells A3:A1048576 to already have the conditional formatting - this way when the user inserts a value into Cell A624, then A625, etc they conditional formatting is already there. Right now with data in cells A3:A623, cells A624:A1048576 are all highlighted with the Red/Bold Red Font (which is okay I guess), but ideally it would be nice to not count 2+ empty cells as duplicates and I'll have to have my formula on Tab 1 not include the blank cells.

I DO NOT want to use the Remove Duplicates feature of Excel 2010. If I remove them I could be removing data in columns B, C, D, etc that belong to the Unique ID. I just need the user to be told in Tab 1 that they DO have duplicates and I'll train the user how to research this and fix it.

The reason I want to look for duplicates in the entire Column A is because the list of Unique ID's will grow over time.

Is there a way to select completely empty rows in Excel 2007 (Win 7)? I have found directions for highlighting empty cells (f5, Special, Blanks...), but sometimes the cells selected will be in rows with other filled cells in them so that doesn't really do what I need.

View 7 Replies View RelatedI want to create an excel sheet so that I can price out computer hardware so that I can see what it will cost compared to what we would sell it for I have the basic idea laid out but I'm running into a problem with cells that don't have any information in for pricing. I get a "#DIV/0!" for the formula that i have worked out.

I don't want to change the information in the cells that I have for pricing I just want it to show 0 and call it good. The other isssuse that i'm have at the bottom of the page I'm trying to show the totals for everything.

I did a simple (=F4:F34) to Show the total of all the information in the column but it's showing up "#VALUE!" I know that this is from the earlier error so if I could be shown how to make these errors go away that'd be great the final product that I would like to have is I want to use a macro to transport some of the information to a word document so that I can print it off and show our customers a quote without them being able to see the cost on everything.

appending excel sheet number in a formula. Here is the example.

In an excel book, I have sheets 1 to 50. In each sheet i have a standard format to enter the details. And in one sheet I want to keep some summary with required cells. I made a table by applying formula, for example in cell A1 i kept formula ='9'!$D$9. In this '9' refers sheet9. In the similar way i want to capture the data from all sheets.

A1 cell ='9'!$D$9

A2 cell ='10'!$D$9

A3 cell ='11'!$D$9....etc

Is there any formula to append the Sheet number automatically (like dragging the shell) intead changing sheet number manually. because it is wasting so much time.

Is it possible to make a cell "really" blank/empty based on an If statement? For instance:

=if(a1>10,a1,"")

Has a value_if_false of "". But Excel interprets this a bit differently than a cell that never had anything typed into it.

So if you have a column full of this formula copied down, and hit <control+down arrow>, you will go straight to the bottom and skip over all rows. Whereas if you have a column with values and empty cells alternating and hit <control+down arrow>, you will only skip the empty cells and go to the next value. Excel treats the conditionally empty cells as if they have a value, when it comes to this type of navigation. This holds even if you copy and paste "Values" for the cells over the formulas.

Is there any way to tell Excel to make the cells truly empty?

I have like 20 columns. I wonder if there is an Excel formula that will count all the non-empty cells across 20 columns. For example, if there are 10 non-empty cells from row B1 to U1 then enter 10 in the result cell A1 and so on down the number of rows. Or, on the other hand, count all the blank or empty cells from B1 to U1.

I am trying to count empty cells in the range from the macro.

Idea is to count empty cells in one row, but cells to be counted are discontinued (range A10:A15, A25:A30. ETC....). Other difficulty is that I can not define the range exactly like this, but I have to use ActiveCell.Offset (0,10) or ActiveCell.Offset(0,11) etc...

ActiveCell is A1.

I tried something like this, but it does not work since I can not define the range correctly.

Dim c

Dim numBlanks

numBlanks = 0

For Each c In Range("ActiveCell.Offset (0,10):ActiveCell.Offset(0,15)")

If c.Value = "" Then

numBlanks = numBlanks + 1

End If

Next c

I am looking for a formula to count the number of blank cells between the cell I am in and the first non-blank cell to the left.

For example, if the value of A1 is 10, I want to count how many blank cells appear between the range B1:B30 up to a maximum of 9, (1 below 10).

Is there a function that will count a column of numbers where that will eliminate counting empty cells based on a certain date that will also capture any numbers that is added after refreshing the table from Access? I have attached a spreadsheet for an example. I need to count on the number in column V that equals 13 for the date of 12/22/09.

I'm attempting to count the empty cells in column C which correspond with the project reference shown in column A. I only want to perform this calculation where the project numbers change (see desired results in column D).

Am struggling with finding a way to define the different range of rows for each project ref within the formula. The full sheet has over 6000 rows and 1500 project refs.

I have a formula '= COUNTIF(A1:A5,"<"&TODAY())' that counts the number of expired dates in one column. I want to include a second condition to this formula that will check if another column of dates are blank then they should not be counted. So if for example a1:a2 have expired dates, and b1:b2 have both got dates then they should be included in the count.

For one Row I'm using this code but I really can't reproduce it on the others.
