## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting 1 Cell With 3 Different Formulas

Feb 16, 2014

Excel 2010

Conditional Formatting 1 cell with 3 different formulas

I am monitoring tank levels using a program called "PI". I need to know if the tank is rising, lowering or staying the same.

I am using conditional formatting to turn red if high, blueif low and yellow if stays the same. Column B, F and J are tank volumns, Column C is in feet and D is in inches.

A B C D E F G H I J K L
1 TIME LEVEL FT IN TIME LEVEL FT IN TIME LEVEL FT IN
2 7:00 3628 18 11 9:00 3456 18 0 11:00 3321 17 3

1305 5600 3600
LOW HIGH CURRENT

I started using formals =\$B\$2=\$AD\$2 COLOR YELLOW
=\$B\$2>\$AC\$2 COLOR RED
=\$B\$2

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting - Different Colored Fonts In Each Cell

Mar 2, 2014

I'm new to 2010 and can't work out the new conditional formatting! I need to be able to enter a letter in A1 and have E1, F1 and G1 automatically show a different letter in each cell (different coloured fonts in each cell as well).

## Excel 2010 :: Merge Conditional Formatting On One Cell At A Time

Aug 1, 2014

I am using the following formula on Excel 2010 in conditional formatting

=\$D5=VLOOKUP(\$B5,'Approved Master OLD'!\$B:\$BC,3,0)=FALSE

However I am trying to apply this to a whole column but the numbers are not (D5,B5) moving down (to D6,B6), When I use the format painter it is taking too long as I can only merge conditional formatting on one cell at a time and I have 30 colums and 390 rows to apply this formatting to.

## Excel 2010 :: VBA To Apply Cell Protection Based On Conditional Formatting Result

Jan 27, 2012

I am trying to use the status of Conditional Formatting to toggle on/off protection for a cell.

I have a cell with Conditional Formatting applied if the result of a formula is true. If the Conditional Formatting is applied, I want the cell protection turned on so a user can not change the entry in the cell. If Conditional Formatting is not applied (false), cell protection is turned off and the user may edit.

I am using Excel 2010 and Vista.

## 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.

## Excel 2010 :: Icon Conditional Formatting Not Working When Formula Present In Active Cell?

Mar 20, 2014

I am trying to apply icon conditional formatting in a cell. The cell contains the following formula: =VLOOKUP(D20,'owssvr(1)'!O:W,9,FALSE The formula results in a "2", "1", "0" or "-1" in the cell. The icon conditional formatting is not working at all (no icon appears). I have the conditional formatting setup as numbers Green 2, Yellow 1,0 etc based on value. If I delete the formula and just type in any of those numbers directly, it works. I have changed my cells to "number" and it still does not work.

## Conditional Formatting Of A Cell Depending On Another Cell

Jul 9, 2014

I want to conditionally format cells K8, L8 and M8 so that when cell C3 contains a 3 it causes the previously mentioned three cells to fill black.

I cannot seem to work out how to do this using the options available under conditional formatting. Is there another way?

## Excel 2010 :: Change Cell Colour Depending On Date In Another Cell

Jan 9, 2013

I am trying to create a sheet in XL 2010.

In Column A each cell will contain a date (differnet from other cells in that column) when inspection was last done.

Column B is when the weekly inspection is due.

Column C is when bi-weekly inspection is due.

Column D is when monthly inspection is due.

Column E is when 6 monthly inspection is due.

I need a formula to change the colour of cells B, C, D & E when each inspection is due depending on the date entered in A

I am hoping its possible that the cell colour can stay for 2 days after the due date and then return back to blank after the second day.

For example if cell A1 has a date of January 1 2013 then on January 8 2013 cell B1 turns red then on January 10 2013 the cell returns back to normal.

A1
B1
C1
D1
E1

Inspection Date
Weeekly Due
Bi-WeeklyDue
Monthly Due
6 Monthly Due

January 1 2013
Change red Jan 8 & return blank Jan 10
Change red Jan 15 & return blank Jan 17
Change red Feb 1 & return blank Feb 3
Change red June 1 & return blank June 3

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting And Dropdown Box?

Jan 5, 2013

I'm running Windows XP with Excel 2010. I would like to be able to have a group of 19 boxes of which each box has a unique entry, ie 1, 3B, 5C etc. Each box I'd like to have a way in which when selected only the single or dual unique characters show as a color. See attached spreadsheet with sample. When a cell with lets say 1 is selected, a drop box appears and the color and description are shown. Select a color but only show the 1 and the color selected, leaving behind the description. How can I do this for all 19 boxes. This seems like its a classic conditional format. Unfortunately it appears to be several orders of difficulty than a normal conditional format.

## Excel 2010 :: Generate Conditional Formatting

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting Using AND And INDIRECT

Jan 10, 2012

I'm trying to do conditional formatting that applies to an entire column (that way there are fewer conditional rules), but it only applies to a certain range of cells within that column. So what I did was setup the rule such as:

Applies To:

=\$B:\$Z

Formula I want to use:

=AND(MOD(ROW()-3,49)=38,INDIRECT("B"&ROW()-4)>=0)

If I copy the entire formula into a cell on the spreadsheet itself, it works just fine returning TRUE and FALSE depending on what row I'm on.

However, the above formatting rule does NOT format ANY row. But if I remove the AND function and the first condition (the one that limits which rows it's actually going to apply to) then it will work...OR if I do NOT use the INDIRECT function then it seems to work, it's some weird combonation of using the two together that is causing it to not evaluate to true.

Oh, and I thought of trying to get the formatting to work with the INDIRECT...then I put in the AND function but the only parameter was the original INDIRECT function (see below)...it stops formatting!

=AND(INDIRECT("B"&ROW()-4)>=0)

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting On Expiration Dates?

Jun 21, 2011

I have a spreadsheet where we track our contractor's Worker's Comp and General Liability insurance certificate expiration dates. I want the expiration date to highlight in red if it is expired and to highlight in orange if it will expire within 30 days or less.

I have attached a testing sheet similar to what I'm working on. The F column has the dates that need to highlight. I have MS Excel 2010.

## 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 2010 :: Conditional Formatting Inconsistencies - Seems Beyond Logic

May 30, 2012

I've run into an issue where conditional formatting is working correctly 98% of the time, but 2% seems beyond logic. Basically if I have more than 120% of Stock Limit on hand I want the cells to turn green. To do this I entered the following Conditional Formatting formula in cell D4:

HTML Code:
=((D4-\$C4)/\$C4)>=\$E\$1

I copied the formatting to all the other cells in the range, and most are colored correctly. This is what I get:

Sheet1

ABCDEFGHIJ1

Overstock Threshold: 120%

2Location:ABC

3ItemNameMin Limit5/1/20126/1/20127/1/20128/1/20129/1/201210/1/201211/1/20124123Part A2-328765435234Part B35-2-21212489898

As you can see, it works correctly for the most part, however some cells, such as cell H5 in the example, that should be colored by they aren't.

My first thought was that this is an issue with the reference, because as I examine other cells it doesn't look like conditional formatting formulas are updated relative to that particular line, however that is the same case for my red formats and those are correct. I have over 50,000 rows so creating a new formula for each row certainly isn't the preferred option, neither is writing a macro to manually color them because of the processing time. I'm using Excel 2010.

## Excel 2010 :: How To Force / Refresh Conditional Formatting

Jun 18, 2012

Excel 2010. I have a field that is color formatted based on the value of another field, which is calculated.

The conditional formatting does not refresh when the value is recalculated, but when I go away from the tab and come back, it works fine.

Any simple VB code to refresh the conditional formatting upon a workbook change?

## EXCEL 2010 :: Conditional Formatting With Date Formula?

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting Highlight If Not On Another Sheet

Apr 24, 2013

I am trying to use condtional formatting to highlight a row in a table if the order number is NOT on another table, on a different sheet. Example: Order Number 1001 is in my table on Sheet4, Once the order has been filled is comes off my "Pending Orders" table on Sheet1, which is based on a data connection, so it updates once the connection is refreshed. I would like the row with order number 1001 in my table on Sheet4 to be highlighted letting me know it can now be removed, since I have to manually manage this table. I am using Excel 2010.

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting With Two Conditions In Different Cells?

May 28, 2013

I have two conditions for a cell. One is that it counts the time elapsed in cell M4, (=now()-J4). The other is whether or not we are still waiting for a response (in cell L4, Y or N). What I would like to do is make it so that when we are still waiting for a response the M4 cell is highlighted yellow if more than 3 days and red if more than 6 days, but if cell L4 is changed to "N", then the formatting goes away. II use Excel 2010.

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Format Cell Which Contain Formula?

## Excel 2010 :: Replicate Conditional Formatting Using A User VBA Function?

May 6, 2014

Using Excel 2010.

The background to this question is that I'm trying to replicate conditional formatting using a user VBA function, because I require a thick border around the cells (and the conditional formatting within Excel only has thin borders)

In the final function, there will be 9 combinations of formatting {Red, Amber, Green} interior with {Red, Amber, Green} thick borders.

The formatting is determined by a number in another cell (the "target" cell), which returns a value 0,...,8

I've only got as far as filling in the interior for the first combination, but the function returns an error "Application-defined or object-defined error".

VB:
Function VBA000_003_SetRAG(strTargetRange As String) 'strTargetRange is the reference for the target cell that contains the value 0,...,8

On Error Goto handler [code]....

There is not a problem with the target range, if I remove the two lines relating to rngCaller then the function works OKExecuting the rngCaller.Interior.Color = RGB(255, 0, 0) command through the Immediates window works OKI've tried calling a subroutine & passing the range across

Same errorChanging the range in the subroutine to an absolute range (eg. Sheet1.range("A1")) also causes the

same errorExecuting the subroutine on its own (with the absolute range) works OK

So my guess is that it's a bug/limitation with Excel VBA when trying to execute commands from inside a user function

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting Based On 3 Values In Pivot?

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting Based On Expiration Dates?

Feb 3, 2014

I am trying to use conditional formatting to calculate when the date in the top column gets within 60 days from expiring to turn yellow, 30 days from expiring to turn orange and when it expires to turn red.

## Excel 2010 :: Copying Conditional Formatting To Merged Cells

May 2, 2012

I have a workbook containing two worksheets of staff training records.

The first work sheet contains a list of names and the dates they completed various training courses. I have used some simple date based formulas and conditional formatting to colour-code their name depending on whether their earliest retraining due date has passed, is coming up in the next few weeks, or is a long way off. The data is set out alphabetically, one person per row of data.

The second sheet contains the same list of names, but each person's data is split across two consecutive rows. The cells in column A which contain the staff names are merged in pairs so that the name heads both rows of data.

I want the colour coding of the merged name cells in sheet 2 to automatically copy the colour coding applied to the single name cell in sheet 1, but don't know how.

I'm using excel 2010.

## Excel 2010 :: Deleting Conditional Formatting On Either Close Or Open

Jul 27, 2012

I have a problem where Excel 2010 is deleting one of my conditional formatting conditions. I do not know if it is deleting it on open or close. I just know that I enter the conditional formatting, save the workbook, close the workbook, reopen the workbook, and it is gone.

The other conditional formatting conditions (simple "Cell is Blank") are left intact.

Setup:

Cell with conditional formatting is on sheet "MyRecord" at "\$E\$7". A corresponding boolean value on separate sheet "Data" and must be referred to by using "OFFSET" with a record locator value (workbook level named range "RecordLocator") that leads to corresponding data row, so looks like following:

Code:
=IF(OFFSET(Data!\$D\$5,RecordLocator,0),TRUE,FALSE)

When I configure this, it works great until I save and close the workbook. When I reopen the workbook, this particular conditional formatting is gone with all other conditional formatting left intact.

I've tried using the actual range address in place of range name "RecordLocator", changes nothing.

I can't figure out why Excel deletes this particular conditional format.

## Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting - Shading By Group When Filtered?

Sep 19, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 on XP. I would like to apply conditional formatting to shade every group in alternating color. For example, I have a list of US states. I have a formula already to produce this:

Current Conditional Formatting Formula: =MOD(SUM(1/COUNTIF(\$a\$2:\$a2,\$a\$2:\$a2)),2)=1

STATES (unfiltered)
AL
AL
AK
AK
AK
AR
AR
AZ
AZ
AZ

When I apply a filter, the rows remain shaded as they were originally:

STATES (Filter OUT AK)
AL
AL
AR
AR
AZ
AZ
AZ

I want the conditional format to change when I have filtered out items (DESIRED RESULT):

STATES (Filter OUT AK)
AL
AL
AR
AR
AZ
AZ
AZ

I would assume SUBTOTAL(3,...) would need to be incorported into the conditional formatting formula above, but I do not know how.
