I would like to identify text cells of my document containing names of speakers in a conference with their nationality. I would like to do that by setting the background of the cell with the national flag of the country where the speaker comes from.
I tried to select the flag as an image and put it over the name with trasparency but then it result very not convenient to modify the text in the cell and the image makes the worksheet very heavy
building a worksheet to list people, payrates and hours worked etc. the header needs to have fill in areas that change with the job so I entered them in the rows rather than in a proper header. what I want to do is get rid of gridlines in the first 6 rows but leave them intact on the rest of the document. I see templates that this was done somehow.
I have an Excel 2010 workbook with many worksheets using hundreds of Form Control (not ActiveX) checkboxes. I need a bit of VBA to change Checkbox background color of each checkbox whenever the user checks the box. I assume this needs to be a click event? I don't even know the Checkbox property name I need to change I'm learning VBA as quick as I can
In a whole column (starting from CELL H3 to H3000) There will be different dates. Once these dates have passed a whole year I would like the cell to turn red. Ive tried everything I can think of using MS Excel 2010 in conditioning format and formulas but cant find a answer.
Im happy to have a link to another column and just hide that column but for the end product to highlight the date that is 1yr old!
I have a database of names in one column in excel 2010 and over time I have coloured the text of some of the names green to show that they have been added to a new online database. I want to be able to count how many of the names have been coloured so I can see if it matches with the total number already added on to the online database. I have over 800 entries so I don't want to have to manually count them unless I find I have missed any. Conditional Formatting is greyed out (it is a Shared document so that might be why).
in creating an IF (text is a certain colour) THEN 1, 0 or any others ways I can find the total in that colour. I only have two text colours in my spread sheet, black and light green.
I am wanting to create a function, callable from a worksheet, that sets the background colour for any given range of cells to a given RGB value. I am confused about the Color and ColorIndex properties. I'd have thought the following piece of code was trivial and would work but it doesn't.
I want to change the back ground colour of each row until G column when there is a text in the first cell. I have attached the excel that I want the background colour to be. Like suppose, F1 is the details of family 1, F2 is for family 2. I want each family to be coloured. The rows are not fixed for each family. If F1 details are coloured green, Fr is orange, F3 is green and F4 is orange again. And the number F1, F2, F3, F4 and so on are not ordered in ascending. They can be random. But I want the colour coding to be the same as what I have shown in the excel. I have so many rows like that. How do I do that using excel. I have tried conditional formatting. But it doesn't work.
In the IAF tab, last one on sheet, I want to highlight a cell if on the Day tabs there is anything in column E, this will be text e.g. LAD, LE, E, AD, LC or NS, and in the same cell show the number that appears in column J of the day tabs, the excel sheet I'm working is to large to upload, if I delete some of the tabs all of the formulas go out of kilter. If Joe Blogs was at work on Day 1, the corresponding cell in the IAF tab should be yellow, if the supervisor monitored Joe's work on Day 1 the same IAF tab cell should remain yellow and show the number that is placed in column J on Day 1 for Joe Blogs.
I have managed to upload an amended copy of the file : Job PSS MASTER - v3 6 AMENDED.xlsx
when i pasted the data into an Excel sheet, the background will change to red and the font will turn to blue. Besides, the font in header will change as well. I can't find the way how to do it because this template is set by other person. I can confirm this is not done by macro.
I need a macro that will change the background colour of a cell depending on whether it equals a certain variant. Let me explain.
Cells D8 to N8 will either equal 1, 2, 3 or 4. Depending on the value of the cells on row 8 (D8:N8) I need the above cells on row 4 (D4:N4) to have a different background colour.
If the cell on row 8 is 1, the cell on row 4 must have a green background. If the cell on row 8 is 2, the cell on row 4 must have a yellow background. If the cell on row 8 is 3, the cell on row 4 must have a red background. If the cell on row 8 is 4, the cell on row 4 must have a blue background.
Therefore, if D8 = 3, D4 will have a red background. If F8 = 2, F4 will have a yellow background. And so on.
I need a macro that when ran changes the background colour of the cell range D4:N4 depeding on the value of the cell 4 rows beneath (D8:N8).
How I can change the background colour of cell C:2 depending on what other cell i click? Below a sample of the code im using Basically when i click B:2 i want C:2 to turn grey with the text on top.... Then when i click B:4 i want C:2 to turn Red.....
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Select Case Target.Address Case Is = "$B$2" Range("D2").Value = "No action needed connector is down" 'change this to suit Case Is = "$B$3"
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
The problem is that the cells which need to change are locked and have a object group ontop of them and are not all in one row or column..
The cells which need to change are A4,A5,A6,B6,C6,D6,E6,F6,G6,H2,H3,H4,H5,H6,I6,J6,K2,K3,K4,K5,K6.
It sort of a theme changer for my spreadsheet incase people want a change and can do all of it with one click of a button or maybe click on a cell with the colour on it and have that colour copy itself to the range.
I have five possible reps names in column A, when i type in "peter" i want that row up to column I to have a background colour of yellow, each rep must have his own colour. when i clear the name from column A the row should clear the colour. using conditional formating i can only get the first cell to get a background colour.
excel data table within the charts. I would like to customize the data table placing underneath the chart so I can highlight (say, in red) some of the figures that are greater than certain values for easy reference. Is there anyway I can do with it (since I got more than 800 charts) than that I can only use tools to draw a rectangle and cover that particluar cells up? or is there any ways I can link up the conditional formatting of the data itself with the chart so I can applying certain coloring on the data and reflect on the data table?
Excel 2010. I need to place picture into one cell or one big merged cell, as a background fill. picture must resize to size of cell. must be fixed in, not in front. i still need write into that cell, so it needs to be really background.
On occasion I cut a table from a website and paste into Excel. If/when that data is subsequently deleted from the sheet the gridlines no longer show. I've tried turning the gridlines on and off to know affect. I've tried setting and clearing borders, but that made no different to the gridlines either. Even if I highlight the entire sheet and delete it makes no difference. I can't think of anything else to try.
