Excel 2013 :: Conditional Formatting From Color Code Table?

Nov 20, 2013

In the attached example, you will find column C which has a bunch of qualitative results. Also, in the file or worksheets, you will find Table A which has a color code range.

I would like to have a conditional format down column C that will reference Table A, regardless if it's on in the same worksheet or on another worksheet within the same file?

Excel 2013 :: Extract Cell Value If It Has Conditional Formatting Color?

Mar 26, 2014

I have been trying to make a macro to automatically calculate the quantity I need to increase or decrease our purchase orders.

example.jpg

As the On Hand quantity decreases I have set conditional formatting to determine how much we should order according to a percentage of the Stocking Level and turns the desired cell yellow. For each row the macro would need to identify which cell in columns L through O is yellow from conditional formatting, use that value and subtract the On Order quantity, then put the result in the Adjust PO Qty (+/-) column so I know how much to decrease the order if negative or increase if positive.

Excel 2013 :: Conditional Formatting For Image?

May 12, 2014

What I'm looking to do in Excel 2013 is have it so a specified cell loads an image based on the results of a range of cells.

For example:
If cell B1 = red
and cell B2 = up
and cell B3 = yes
then cell A5 shows image X.

But then have it be comprehensive enough to do
If cell B1 = green
and cell B2 = down
and cell B3 = no
then cell A5 shows image Y.

My hangups are trying to get different images to load in the same cell. Also, all the examples of this I've found are pulling from one cell where I need it to display an image based on the results of multiple cells.

Excel 2013 :: Conditional Formatting - When Set B3 To Closed Nothing Happens

Aug 13, 2014

I have a row of data in Excel 2013 that is roughly as follows :

Cell A2 - Date || B2 - Status || C2 - Description || D2 - Estimate Time || E2 - Comments

Cell B2 is a pick list of statuses --> Open || In Progress || Closed

The conditional rule I want to create is one where if B2 = 'Closed', format the text of the entire row (cell A2 to E2) to turn light blue.

I was successful in doing this --> basically highlighted A2 to E2; conditional formatting; new rule; use formula; \$B\$2 = "Closed"; format text color blue.

When I do this, now when cell B2 = Closed, the line turns blue.

The issue is I want this condition to apply to row 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 etc ... basically a multi-row list.

I highlight the cells (A2 ~ E2) and then grab the bottom right corner of E2 and drag down 5 rows (creating row for A3 / A4 / A5 / A6 / A7).

The issue is when I set B3 to Closed, nothing happens; likewise for B4 or B5 etc ...

When I set B2 to Closed, it changes itself and all the rows below to light blue.

This used to work in earlier versions of Excel, but I can not see to get this working in 2013.

Excel 2013 :: Conditional Formatting Twice And Over A Range?

Dec 26, 2013

Using Excel 2013.

I have two columns of numbers. For a row, if the right number is greater than the left number, then color it green, if it is less then color it red.

e.g.

A1 = 100 B1 = 101, then B1 gets colored green
A2 = 100 B2 = 99, then B2 gets colored red

etc.

I have clicked on conditional formatting with A2 selected, then chose A1 for values greater than and chose green. I then copied the formula for all rows. I then did the same for values less than and chose red.

It is not coloring the cells correctly. On some rows when B

Excel 2013 :: Table Formatting Including Headers

Aug 28, 2013

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting - Assign Each Prg Its Own Color On Total Tab

May 25, 2012

I am trying to create conditional formatting in Excel 2007 that is beyond my abilities.

I have 6 rows. The first row is a sum of all the others. Example here:

prg 1 prg 2 prg 3 prg 4 prg 5
Total
4 1 2
10 10

I would like to assign each prg its own color on the total tab, and if it spans multi programs a separate color all together.

Excel 2007 :: Row-wise Conditional Formatting On Color Scale

Jan 14, 2014

I need to color format several matrices of about 1000 rows each in order to find a pattern. Each row needs to be formatted on a color-scale so that the maximum value in each row has the darkest color and the minimum value has the lightest, while others are lighter according to their weight. It can be done on a single row, but it does not work for multiple rows at once. I have tried format copying and range options but it takes the maximum and minimum for the whole range rather than individual rows.

I'm wondering if it is possible to do it for multiple rows while the criteria of maximum and minimum applies to individual rows.

Excel 2003 :: Conditional Formatting For Currency Symbols And Cell Color

Jun 15, 2011

I am using excel 2003. I need to conditional formatting for the following:

Based on the column A, if it is USD, the next column show \$ and the cell in blue

If it is Euro, the next column show Euro Sign and the cell in yellow.

How to make that happen?

Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting Of Table Rows Based On Value In Column?

Jan 2, 2014

I'm working in Excel 2010.

I setup a table with a column titled "Type". Each value under column "Type" defines the type of row it is: "Section", "SubSection", "SubSubSection"

I wish to create a set of conditional formatting rules that apply to data rows in this table, each rule controlling how cells within a whole row should be formatted, according to the value found in "Type", for that row.

Example:

Rule1: [@Type]="Section" -> fat red line on top of cell.
Rule2: [@Type]="SubSection" -> thin black line on top of cell.
Rule3: [@Type]="SubSubSection" -> dashed black line on top of cell.

I can't seem to make this work.

How can I leverage the nice column names, and the "@"-this row designator, within a table to create conditional formatting rules that apply to all the cells within a row, in the same way one can refer to in table formulas?

Excel 2010 :: Pivot Table Conditional Formatting - Highlight ENTIRE Row

Aug 16, 2013

I am using Excel 2010. I have a pivot table where I want to highlight the ENTIRE row where a certain cell value equals something.

In essence I want all the Material Subtotal Rows highlighted "Orange" But as you can tell from the picture below I am having issues with the Body of the Pivot table. I have the formula checking to find whenever it finds the word total to highlight it.

The example below is showing how I need the row to be formatted. I can get the Data (Units) section formatted no problem. It is just the other part of the pivot table that I cannot format.

For the columns from Material to SAP # I have been trying to use Dynamic Name ranges using the Offset function. However, excel turns that Name range to a range and if I filter the pivot table, it adds extra ranges to the Applies to box and starts to really mess it up.

Excel 2010 :: Macro To Color Code Cells Based On Value In A Cell And Range In A Table

Dec 2, 2013

I am using Windows 7 and Excel 2010.

Is there a way to create a macro to color code a cell based on the value in a cell, and then look up a value in a table, then color code it based on where it fits into the table?

I have a table of values for about 30 projects. In column g - there is a CPI value (see bold column)

Example: Project ID
Name
Program
PMT
SI ID
AC
Milestone
TCP Level
[Code] ......

Here is the table:

I have to color code a cell, base on the CPI and how it fits into the table below. So if the current Milestone is M2 or M3 and the CPI calculated is .14 the cell would be colored RED, if the CPI number is 2.01 for M2-M3 I would want cell to be colored Turquiose. If we were at Milestone M6 and the CPI was 2.01, it would be colored blue. If the CPI was .75 at Milestone M5, it would be colored Green

LEGEND
Earned Value Limits

Milestone
RED
Yellow
Green
Turquoise
Blue

M2-M3
2.15

M4-M6
1.66

M7-M11

Excel 2013 :: Conditional Count If Formula

Apr 4, 2014

I am working in Excel 2013.

My objective is to count the number of "Horizontal-Horizontal" entries in Column D for a specific value in Column C, BUT (and this is where I am lost), taking into consideration only unique values in Column A.

So, for the highlighted red entry in my spreadsheet sample below, there are 2 entries of Horizontal-Horizontal for Column C value A2961. BUT since, Column A entries for A2961 are duplicates, I want to return a value of 1. Hope this makes sense.

This is my formula that is working for the first part of the equation. I need to add something to it to condition the count based on unique values in Column A.

=COUNTIFS(\$C\$2:\$C\$101192,C2,\$D\$2:\$D\$101192,"Horizontal-Horizontal")

A
B
C
D
E
F

4229532326

Excel 2013 :: Formatting Of Entire Worksheet Changes Unexpectedly

Jan 20, 2014

In Excel 2013 x64 (EN; CZ locale) I have this funny bug. I work on a large vba project and sometimes when I open it, every cell in every workbook that had default formatting now has this numberformat (shown as "Accounting")

"_-* #,##0.00 [\$Kč-405]_-;-* #,##0.00 [\$Kč-405]_-;_-* ""-""?? [\$Kč-405]_-;_-@_-"

its seems that this formatting is assigned to styles --> Normal and it just messes up everything (pivots, slicers...) and cannot(!) be undone.

I have made some routines to check for this error on workbook.open and workbook.close and I also have file versioning. I check for the error regularly on every worksheet change, but it never comes up, nor does it whenever I close the workbook, so Im having hard time detecting when it occurs.

Sometimes when I try to open the workbook its just all messed up. When I go trough the versions, couple of them back still has the error which means it was already saved with it.

All I could figure out so far is that it sometimes happens when I try to copy some cell and paste it elsewhere (but later it works fine)

I'm 99.9% sure that my code is not causing it by accident or purpose. Now I just found the problem on different workbook that might have been opened at the same time. If you're interested, have a look here [URL] ......

Excel 2013 :: Conditional Format Named Range

Mar 15, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that keeps track of the equipment we have on rent. Whenever we have a new rental, I insert a row and enter the information. I have several conditional formats I am applying - (1) making the font a light grey so that it is hard to see on any rental that has been called off, but invoicing isn't complete on, (2) making the font red on any item that is within 3 days of the term, and highlighting any row that isn't showing an invoice in over 45 days. When anything is completed (rental has been called off, and the final invoice has been approved), I cut the row out and put it in a sheet entitled "Closed Equipment". When I cut out closed records or add new records, it will occasionally mess up my conditional formatting by only referencing one row. Additionally, I don't want the conditional formatting to transfer over to the "Closed Equipment" tab.

Would this be easier to keep clean and straight if I used VBA? Or should I just continue to occasionally check my conditional formatting and clean it up? I thought if I used a Named Range instead of cell references, it might work better, but entering named range "On_Rent" converts to the cell range (\$A\$4:\$AA\$194).

I am using Windows 8, Excel 2013. The file is on a network drive, and others in the office can look at it (they all run Windows 7, and either Excel 2010 or 2007), but they look at it so seldom.

Conditional Formatting Color Changing?

May 28, 2014

We have a spreadsheet that is sent to a manager weekly. The manager takes the sheets from 30+ individuals and copies all into a single workbook that is then distributed to a very large audience and reviewed weekly. In this workbook, I have created drop downs with conditional formatting - Low = Green, Medium = Yellow, Critical = Red. On the original workbook, this formatting works great, however, after the manager consolidates and redistributes all worksheets the Green shows Gray, Yellow is OK and Red shows Black.

Conditional Formatting To Color Cell

Conditional Formatting - Color Exceptions

Aug 11, 2009

When using conditional formatting, I have it set to the following:

C2=60 (Reference Cell)
C3=5 (Reference Cell)

Conditional Format Settings
If C3 >= C2/12 then pattern set to Green
If C3 < C2/12 then pattern set to Red

Here is the problem - when you have a value in C3, everything is fine, it's either green or red. If C3 is blank, it defaults to green because the conditional format is true.

Is there anyway to add something in there to have no color when C3 is not populated?

Put Color On Row Of Cells With Conditional Formatting?

Dec 11, 2013

I have a column that when I put info in it gives me a colour, now on this I have quit a few different labels, eg. AAG201, PRA001, 000010 and so on, now on my rule I have put in that if it is PRA* ,AAG* to be one colour and 0000* to be a colour. (this is working without a problem).

I have tried to get the rest of the row to be the same colour, but cannot get te rules to work, I do not know which rule to use to get this working.

VBA Conditional Formatting - Font Color

Jul 6, 2009

I'm using Excel 2003.

I have four conditions that dictate font colors in column "d" of "sheet1" and am using the following
Private Sub Font_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Set Myrange = Range("D2:D1000")
For Each Cell In Myrange

If Cell.Value = "Started" Then
Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
End If
If Cell.Value = "Pending" Then
Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 4
End If
If Cell.Value = "On-going" Then
Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 18
End If
If Cell.Value = "Completed" Then
Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 6
End If

Next
End Sub

1. Does this code look valid?
2. Do I paste the code in a "module" or in a worksheet object? If I add this to a module, how does the code know to reference sheet1?
3. Is there a handy reference guide that shows color codes? If so, where can I get a copy.
