# Excel 2011 :: Conditional Formatting Based On Text Match From If Statement?

Oct 2, 2013

I want to highlight a cell if the text displayed from an IF formula is equal to the cell content.

CELLS BK10:BN10 are merged and have entered into them the following text "SELL"

Cells BJ20:BP20 are merged and contain the following formula which currently results in the cell displaying "SELL"

=IF(BM22<=-0.08,"SELL", IF(AND(BM22>-0.08,BM22 < -0.03),"NO INDICATION", IF(BM22>=-0.03,"HOLD")))

Cell BM22 is a percentage calculation of the differences between two different days of volume for this stock and that formula is: =(BH22/BH25)-1 Cell BM22 currently is calculating the result to be -65.65%

When I set up a CLASSIC Conditional Formatting using a formula (="If(\$BJ\$20=""SELL""") to check the if the text in cells BK10 match the text displayed in cell BJ20 - I get no error messages and no formatting?

I am using Mac Office Excel 2011. I feel like I have tried everything including changing the Number selection type of the cells to TEXT. Nothing seems to works.

## Excel 2011 :: Conditional Formatting For Training Expiration Dates

Mar 28, 2014

I manage a number if individuals in the Army and as such, track their annual training requirements. Some requirements are semi-annual, annual, quadrennial, etc...

I have a spreadsheet to track the dates that the requirement was last completed (attached). I would like to use conditional formatting to turn dates that are within 30 days of being due (or blank) RED and dates that are between 31 days and 60 days of being due YELLOW.

I am using Excel MAC 2011.

## Excel 2011 :: Extracting Data That Is Text Based (Mac)

Jul 26, 2014

I have a workbook with 2 sheets.

Sheet 1 will act as a summary for sheet 2, showing only the last 5 entries from sheet 2.

Sheet 2 is based on football results of a season which will have a total of 34 league games plus cup games.

Sheet 2 has 4 columns:

Game Number Home Team Result Away Team
1 United 2-0 City
2 Sportive 4-2 Uniao
3 Real 1-0 Ateltico
4 Villa 1-3 City
5 United 2-1 Real
6 Atletico 0-0 Villa

So sheet 1 will show the last 5 results as the season progress's and new data is added.

I have been able to extract column 'GAME NUMBER' using the following formula:

=INDEX('Back end 1'!A:A,MATCH(9.99999999999999E+307,'Back end 1'!A:A)-ROWS('Back end 1'!A2:A\$6)+1)

I am struggling to find a way to pull the last 5 data that is text based.

I am using Excel Mac 2011.

## 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.

## Conditional Formatting Of Text Obtained From IF-Statement

Mar 24, 2014

Conditional formatting. I have been tasked with creating a simple game for a group training project.

The game consists of users filling in the answers to questions (simple one word text answers). My boss wants to have a master sheet with the correct answers, and a subsequent sheet that will then compare the employee's answer to the master sheet. If the employee's answer is correct, then the output sheet simply displays the correct answer, however, if the employee's answer is wrong, he would like the output to display the correct answer and highlight the cell.

Is there a way to have the output sheet highlight a cell only when the answer on the employee sheet is different from the master sheet? I was thinking along the lines of using an if statement to see if the values of the employee sheet differ from the master sheet, but I do not know how I would then use that result to highlight the cells in the output sheet.

## Excel 2002 :: Conditional Formatting - If All Cells Match Background In One Cell To Change To Green

Apr 7, 2014

Excel 2002

I have a simple spreadsheet and am trying to get some Conditional Formatting to work.

Cell1 = Name
Cell2 = 1
Cell3 = 2
Cell4 = 3

If cells 2, 3, and 4 all match I want the background in cell 1 to change to green.

I've tried (Formula Is =B1=C1=D1 green) with no luck.

## Excel 2011 :: Index / Match Finds 1st Incident / How To Find Last Instance

Nov 23, 2012

I am working on a data entry sheet time and I am running into a wall. I am trying to code intelligence into sheet so that the user doesn't have to enter as much data.

I am using Excel for Mac, 2011, 14.2.3, But I would like to be able to have others use it on PC and in Excel 97 - 2004

I am developing a time sheet for work. I am trying to have excel generate the work order # for subsequent jobs.

'Daily Entry Sheet'!\$B\$8:\$B\$138 = Date

'Daily Entry Sheet'!\$F\$8:\$F\$138 = Property #

'Daily Entry Sheet'!\$G\$8:\$G\$138 = Property Location

'Daily Entry Sheet'!\$H\$8:\$H\$138 = Work Order Number

Following is what I presently have coded.

The following Works but is not completely as I need.

=IF(OR(\$F8=0,\$F8="",ISNA(G8),\$H7="Work Order #"),"",IF(ISERROR(INDEX(\$H7:H\$8,MATCH(\$F8,Prop.,0))),"",INDEX(\$H7:H\$8,MATCH(\$F8,Prop.,0))))

This works fine in that the match finds the first instance of the work order #. The problem is there may be a later worker order # for the same property which supersedes the old work order. I need to find that last work order number for property # 919 for example, not the first instance, as the index/match returns.

I looked for a function similar to the sumif or countif

=SUMIF(Prop.,\$F4,WorkOrdNum)

=SUMIF(Date,"="&\$V6,Total_____Hours)

But I don't need to add the work order numbers.

Countif can give me how many instances property # 919 is used,

But I haven't figured out how to use that to It would be ok if the function would return the largest number like the MAX function, best would be to select based upon the latest date.

## Excel 2011 :: Can't Get Index Match Max Functions To Work Sampling Data From Multiple Columns

Jan 29, 2014

I have 3 calculations I would like to make based on data in the spread sheet and I can't seem to get them to work with data from the two separate columns.

I tried a few of the index match max formulas I found here and could only get them to work with one column of data.

I have the spread sheet attached and the 3 calks I want to do are blank on the bottom.

## Excel 2011 :: Find Multiple Text Strings In Another Text String

Mar 8, 2013

How do I use an Excel formula to find which (if any) multiple sets, each of up to 50 words, exist in a series of rows of a spreadsheet - if set A has one or more words found in a searched cell.

A positive result will return a specific value in the designated result cell. If none of the words in Set A is found in the searched cell, the formulae will repeat the test for the words in Set B, and so on.

After all 50 sets of words have been tested, the formula will move to the next cell in the searched column.

New words will be added to the sets of words continually as required.

Multiple words within sets are included in double quotes. Within each set of words there will be some n-tuples of words (i.e. 24 adjacent words) that contain one or more of the words in the set, but for which the formula will be required to return a negative result. Example: Set A = word 1, word2, word 3, "word1 word2 word3". (The words within a set could also be each entered in separate columns, as opposed to all included in a single cell.) The single column of text to be searched is about 10,000 rows.

I am wanting to use the above in a spreadsheet that contains data downloaded from a series of bank accounts to automatically allocate items of expenditure to one of 20 or so different categories of expenditure.

The formula will search the description field to find words that are used in the in the downloaded files from the various accounts to describe each transaction.

If a word describing travel expenditure (e.g. hotel, "holiday inn" but not "holiday travel") is found in the description of an expenditure item - the item cost will be allocated to the TRAVEL EXPENDITURE column, which is one of 20 or so different categories of expenditure.

Happy to consider a different solution if the task can be done better a different way.

Tried using a combination of INDEX/SEARCH/IF in Excel, but was not able to get a correct result. PS I am using Excel 2011 for Mac - which does not allow macros, so the solution needs to be entirely formula based.

## Conditional Formatting Formula Based On Text In Two Cells?

I need a formula for conditional formatting which highlights a row if A has the text "Ex" and B has "Paid".

## Conditional Formatting Based On Text In Adjacent Cell?

Feb 16, 2014

A2:A5 contains different dollar amounts, a6 is the sum of those amounts

In column B (B2:B5), i place a "p" beside the amount in column A once it has been paid.

I want to:

a. conditionally format the amounts in column a to turn green once I put the 'p' in the adjacent column

b. conditionally format the sum in A6 to exclude amounts that have been paid, and only display the total amount of the unpaid lines.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Multiple Text Criteria?

Mar 1, 2014

I'm trying to set up conditional formatting in a spreadsheet where there are 3 possible correct letters that can be entered into a range of cells and if one of these letters is not entered then I would like the cell to be highlighted.

To be more precise, it's an accommodation spreadsheet and in each cell if someone needs a room for that particular night (each night is represented by a separate column) then a letter is used to indicate what type of room they require i.e. "k" is a king room, "s" is a Suite and "t" is a twin. I don't want to force people to have to select from a list which would be the obvious solution to this as it is simply too cumbersome for the amount of data entry we do.

However i want to ensure that if someone accidentally enters anything other than t,k or s then the cell is highlighted. We work in large spreadsheets covering months of dates so to manually have to find any errors is hugely time consuming.

## Traffic Light Conditional Formatting Based On Text?

Nov 4, 2013

I'm trying to create a dashboard with traffic lights displaying the status of a task. My manager wants a to be able to pick a color (Red, Yellow, Green) from a drop down menu and then have that be displayed as a red, yellow or green traffic light. Using the conditional formatting option, I'm only able to use numerical values or a formula. I'm hoping there's a way to either create a drop down list with the 3 different colored traffic lights or a way to use VBA to have the conditional formatting search by text instead of numbers.

## Conditional Formatting Based On Color Or Text Of Another Cell

Jun 14, 2013

1 2 3 4 5 6
1
2 x x x x
3 x x
4 x x
5 x x
6 x x

Assume that is the table i have. In row 1 i need conditional formatting such that if any of the columns contain an x the first row should be color coded. In my above example every column in row 1 will be color coded expect for row 1 column 6 since there are no x's for any any row in column 6.

How can i do this in excel.Also instead of x's if i have manually entered color can we do the same ?

## IF Statement Using Formatting Criteria (NOT Conditional Formatting)

May 5, 2009

Is there "code" for different formatting in a spreadsheet so you can use an IF statement to do something like:

if(A1=blue background,"Yes","No")

or

if(A1=red text,"Yes","No")

etc.?? But replace "blue background" and "red text" with some sort of number code? I want to compile a list of the items that are formatted with certain background colors and/or text colors and then organize only those items into a chart.

## 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.

## Excel 2010 :: Highlighting Data Based On Conditional Formatting

Apr 1, 2014

I'm using Excel 2010 on my Mac. I would like to set up the data as follows:

A
B
C
D
E
F

NAME
DATA X
DATA Y
DATA Z
DATA XX
DATA YY

NAME
90%
88.2
410
88.4%
97.8

[Code] ........

Now what I would like to do is have the data in each column highlighted a certain color based on specific ranges. For example in Column B I want anything from 92% - 100% highlighted blue. I would like 83% - 91.9% highlighted purple, and anything under 83% highlighted red. Do I need to have a conditional format entered in each cell? Can I set up a conditional format for the whole column? Once I can figure the formatting in my example the remaining columns will be a breeze since they will be set up in the same manner just different number ranges, same colors will apply.

## Conditional Formatting For Entire Row Based On Presence Of Any Text / Values In Column

Oct 19, 2013

I am trying to apply a conditional format to an entire row based on the presence of any value in the first cell of that row to format to a certain color. If there isn't something present in the first cell, I don't want it to change.

Everything I keep trying ends up highlighting the entire workbook.

I would like to apply the rule to the entire sheet but only have it highlight the rows which have a value/text in the first cell of each row.

I am assuming I should use the formulas selection for conditional formatting but I'm unsure of what formula would apply to this type of request.

## Changing Cell Text Color WITHOUT Using Conditional Formatting Based On Finding Keywords

May 29, 2012

I have a spreadsheet that uses VB macros to calculate sums of cells based on the font color of the numbers inside. It used to be fairly easy going through each cell and "classifying" them by color, so that my macros can go ahead and sum the numbers in each respective color's cell... but now I have a huge amount of numbers and would like to automate the process somewhat. Here's an example using the A and B columns:

flight \$400
hotel \$150
hotel \$130
meal \$20
meal \$15
flight \$350

I tried using conditional formatting to automatically change the color of the adjacent cells based on the presence of a keyword such as "flight" or "hotel", but this change is only cosmetic, and doesn't actually change the font color (it is still the default black, hence why my color-summing macros won't work!).

I'm including a sample macro for what I use to color-sum my cells, but what I am looking to automate the color-coding process based on looking for keywords as explained above in my example. Here is one of the working color-summing macros (for red, in this case) if you'd like to use it as a reference:

Function SumRed(SelectedCells As Range)
' Adds the values of the cells where the font colour is red(3).
Dim Cell As Object
Dim x As Double

[Code] ...........

## Conditional Formatting - Change Value Font Color In Cell Based On Matching Text?

Jun 26, 2013

Via conditional formatting, I am searching to change the color of a specific word in a cell (not the color of everything in the cell, but only that specific word - and the word repeats in the cell). A function such as =isnumber(search("NOK";A1)) colors all the cell values, which I do not want to do. How i can perform this task?
