Excel 2007 :: Get Cell To Refer To Date That It Contains And Change Cell Colour Based On That?
Dec 19, 2012
I work for a UK charity and have a list of funders in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet.
One of the columns refers to the date on which a new application for funding can be made to that particular funder.
In many cases new applications for funding can't be made for 1 or more years since the last application - sometimes as many as 5 years later. How to get a cell to refer to the date that it contains.
For example, say I have in cell A1 "The Acme Funding Organisation" and in cell B1 (i.e. the "Reapply when?" column) a date of 01/04/2013 (British date format, i.e. 1 April 2013) then what I want Excel to do is to look at the date in cell B1 and if that date has been reached to highlight the cell red. That way I'll know that the reapply date has been reached & that a new application can be made.
I am creating a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel 2007 which holds information about the airline Emirates which I have created using information from the internet. I am currently creating a sheet which has all their flights in and holds information about the departure time and arrival time of the flight and the type of aircraft ect. I am wondering if there is anyway in being able to have the cell which has the flight number in to change colour (Green or Red) if the flight is in the air or not by using the departure and arrival times already set on the sheet. I am wondering if you possibly need to have a live time on the sheet so that it can work with that .....
I have a peice of code that i know is inefficient and it is in danger of becoming too large. I have a spreadsheet that has circles aligned to each cell. There are around 100 in total. The code changes the colour of the shape based on the cell value in which it sits. However, the code needs changing and also it does not automatically update the colour shape even though the cell value changes. I have to manually select a cell and then the formula bar and then press return for it to update.
I am using excel 2010.
This is the code i am using for each shape.
Code: If Range("n12").Value = text Then ActiveSheet.Shapes("Oval 250").Fill.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 255, 255) End If
I have the the following spreadsheet: [URL] My formula in Columns A to E is the following:
=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(Query1_2[@Branch],Master!A:J,10,FALSE)),"Branch Not Open",VLOOKUP(Query1_2[@Branch],Master!A:J,10,FALSE))
I would like to do the following in Column A: If the date in Column C is greater than today, then Column A must also say "Branch Not Open". I have tried the following:
=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(Query1_2[@Branch],Master!A:J,10,FALSE)),"Branch Not Open",VLOOKUP(Query1_2[@Branch],Master!A:J,10,FALSE)),IF(C:C<=TODAY,"Branch Not Open, IF(AND(C:C=>TODAY,VLOOKUP(Query1_2[@Branch],Master!A:I,9,FALSE)))
I have a cell containing a 'bullet' symbol (•) and a cell containing text.
If I make the bullet red and the text is black is there a way I can combine them in the same cell and the bullet remains red and the text black?
Essentially the situation Im in is I have a load of text I need to add coloured bullets to and I dont want to individually paste in and colour format all the bullet points because it would be too time consuming.
I need to write a condition in such a way that cell IF A1= "DBR","BPR","SLR","SKR" then change cell B1 to SPECIFIC COLOUR Each condition different colour. A1 values ("DBR","BPR","SLR","SKR") is a list of selectable values. if the condition is falls then B1 should be normal (white color cell) with 0 in it.
I've seen examples of VBA that will colour autoshapes based on cell values. I have a map of the UK made up of autoshapes that have been edited to create a shape of each postcode area such as EX, GL, NR etc. Also I have a list of all these postcode areas and I have given them a zone number (1-7) depending where in the UK they are.
At the moment I have set the colours using the fill option so anything that is a particular zone is a certain colour (i.e. zone 2 is green).
What I would like to do is to set a zone to a colour, so the map will update all the zones with the right colours.
I need to be able to read the zone number that is assigned to a postcode area and change the relevant autoshape to the correct colour so that any postcode area can be one of 7 colours.
I can't attach a spreadsheet with my map and postcodes otherwise I would have.
Is there an easy way i can read the zone number of each postcode area in the list and update that autoshapes colour? Would the autshape need to have a name so it know which one to update or is this not possible?
I have found this code that, with changes, I can make work with the cells and columns I am using. What I cannot see is how to make more than one cell change colour rather than just the cell in column J.
How can I change the code below to change several cells in the row? I will be using cells in columns A:F.
Data will be entered into the rows from A2 to E2, in F2 a vlookup will enter one of the values, "High", "Medium" etc.
Each of these values has a colour assigned. The code below, with alterations, will be able to colour the cell in F2 depending on which value is entered. I need the whole row from A2 to F2 to be coloured.
Code: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim ChangedRange As Range Dim r As Long, iCol As Long
Set ChangedRange = Intersect(Target, Columns("F:H"))
Green=if within the max min range [as specified by user] Amber=if the current value is less than the allowable slack level[again specified] red=if the current value is less than or more than the min or max respectively.
I need to change the colour of a cell using VBA based on the input of a certain word. I have used teh below code but it doesn't pick up different variations of the word
Dim cell As Range For Each cell In Range("E2:E500") If cell.Value = "Check" Then[code]....
This code works fine (i have put it into worksheet change) when I use "Check and Mark and Chase" but some users are bound not to use capitalised first letters and on these occasions the cell colours are not changing.
How to add something to thie code above to make it work for any variation of capitalisation?
What would be the quickest and most efficient way of doing the following:
Sheet 1: clicking once, twice, three times in the following cells to change the fill to Red, Yellow, Green respectively (in Row 22, COLUMNS E H K N Q T W Z AD AG) and mirrorring this format/fill on:
Sheet 2: , mirror the selected fill on sheet1 in E22, H22 , K22 in in E3:N3 respectively example E22 (sheet1) is mirrored now in E3 (sheet 2); H22 (sheet 1) is mirrored in F3 (sheet2) etc etc.
I have 35 tabs formatted in the same way - each tab, as with Sheet 1 is linked to a different row on sheet 2 in the same range as is sheet 1 and would need to replicate the mirorring on Sheet 1 to each of the other 34 tabs.
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.
I am trying to simplify a type of gannt chart bar across a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet has dates across row 3 that are calculated from the first cell F3 with =F3+7 to populate the rest of the row with dates. I want to be able to input a start date in D4, then all the other titles in column A. This start date will start the coloured bar at that start date in the chart, I will then copy/drag that start date cell for however number of weeks for the duration and I want the finish date to auto populate E4 with the finish date and also auto populate the numbers of weeks in C4 for that bar.

I have a very basic understanding of excel, I mean BASIC, for my work I have multiple dates for vehicles to go in for inspections. I would like the cells to change colours when within 30 days, 10 days and 5 days. I'm on a work excel 2003.
I have a table of data (total 142 rows). Column contains dates, in the format dd-mmm-yyyy.
I tried to filter using DATE FILTERS->EQUALS and in the custom filter window, I chose EQUALS then picked a date from the date picker icon. The date I picked was 5/4/2009 (this is May 4, 2009, formatted automaticall by excel as m/d/yyyy).
When I clicked OK, nothing showed up despite the fact that there are 6 occurences of May 4, 2009 (formatted as dd-mmm-yyyy in the data table)
So my questions are:
1. Is this due to the formatting?
2. Is there a way to change the date format supplied by the date picker?
I have two cells, A2 and B2. When I enter a numeric value into B2, I want it only allowed when certain text values are in A2. I.E.: Allow any value in B2, but only if A1 is either "SYDN or "ADEL".
Now using info found in an old post, I can achieve this with a combination of data validation and code: =OR(A2="SYDN",A2="ADEL") for the validation and for the code:
The only problem is I also need to reset B2 if A2 changes to invalid data as a result of some other input to that cell (A2). In other words if B2 is showing "1" already and A2 were to change from "SYDN" to say "LOND", then B2 needs to be cleared. If A2 changed to "ADEL" then it doesn't need to clear but it is ok if it does because it is fine to re-enter "1" into B2 again.
I have attempted to attach a sample worksheet : Xl0000003.xls
I have two columns. In column B is the date of "last check". I column A is the date of "next check". I would like to have cell A2 in yellow color 334 days after the date entered in cell A3 and than in red color 365 days after the date entered in cell A3. Same thing for cell B2 related to date entered in cell B3. Yellow color in cells announces that check will expire within 30 days and red color that check has been expired.
