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.
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.
A1 = 100 B1 = 101, then B1 gets colored green A2 = 100 B2 = 99, then B2 gets colored red
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
I have been trying to make a macro to automatically calculate the quantity I need to increase or decrease our purchase orders.
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.
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.
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")
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] ......
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.
I have a spread sheet that shows dates when people have been assessed to be fit to carry out exercise I want to be able to put dates into a cell that are older than today e.g. 07.07.2013 and it turns the cell green then 11 months from that date the cell turns yellow and 12 months from date cell turns red. I can get conditional formatting to do this from the present date but not from older dates .
07,. 07. 2013 = Green 07.06. 2014 =Yellow 07.07.2014 = Red
I'm trying to clear conditional formatting (icon set) that I was experimenting with, but no joy at all. The only function within the "Styles" section is Cell Styles -- conditional formatting & fornat as table choices are grayed-out.
I've tried to delete and re-enter the data, clear formats, clear all, copy and paste, format painter...nothing worked.
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.
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:
Formula I want to use:
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!
I'm currently trying to set up a spreadsheet on excel, when certain documents need updating. Basically I have a column with the dates in that each document was last updated, I want the cells to turn red (fill colour) if the document has not been updated within the last 6 months and orange (fill colour) if the document has not been updated in the last 4 months. How do I do this?
I am currently using Excel 2002 and am on a Windows XP computer.
I have data in several columns going left to right. In column N I subtract column H from column I and then in column O I subtract column I from column J. I then use conditional formatting to indicate whether column N is greater than 45 and column O is less than 120, using different formats for each. If the cell value does not meet the condition then there is no conditional formatting used in that cell.
I want to subtotal each column to indicate the amount over or under 45 in column N and over and under 120 in column O and I would like to know if I can do it using the colors in each cell. Most rows do not meet either condition but a few rows do meet both conditions and I don't think sorting and subtotaling is not going to give me what I want.
I have about 7,000 rows in this worksheet and I am going to be removing lines and then maybe adding them back and I would like to track the balances as the data gets moved around. I can use Window Watch for that.
I am using Excel 2007, don't know how to write VBA and would really like a solution that does not use VBA.
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.
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.
Using Excel 2007 and conditional formatting, how would I find duplicates across all fields in the table, similar to the "remove duplicates" tool that in default mode selects all the fields or offers the option to select fields of choice. I need to look at all the fields.
I've tried concatenation, but only with a limited number of fields; larger amounts slow the process to a crawl. If my table is 10,000 records with 15 fields, what process would I use to highlight the duplicates. How about something in VBA?
I have a date in column A. I want to format to YELLOW column F based on whether column F is blank and 20 days past column A. I also want the formatting to change colors to RED if it remains blank past 30 days. Then, when column F is filled in I want the formatting to be removed.
I'm using 2007 and want to add conditional formatting to multiple cells.
Say I have 3 columns and 10 rows of data (A1:10 ; B1:10 ; C1:10). I want to add an icon set to everything in columns B and C based on a comparison with the figure on their immeidate left. So B1 is compared to A1, C1 to B1 etc.
When I do it though it compares everything to A1 (formula in the Conditional Formating is =$A$1 and it won't let me remove the $'s). It looks to me like I can't do it and have to add the formatting to every cell indiviually (which is quite a lot).
I've run into an issue where conditional formatting is working correctly 98% of the time, but 2% seems beyond logic. Basically if I have more than 120% of Stock Limit on hand I want the cells to turn green. To do this I entered the following Conditional Formatting formula in cell D4:
HTML Code: =((D4-$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:
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.
