Summary of performance of various products against target is as follows,

Product vs Target

Color Code

Result

CH4OH

Green

1.0

[Code] ........

I need the final result automated as follows,

If 2 green of the 4 products, then final result Gree

If 2 Amber of the 4 products, then final result amber

If 2 Red of the 4 products, final result Red

Is there a way to automate this?

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 ?

I'm trying to get conditional formatting to change the cell color based on a few conditions.

I want the cells in column D to turn red if;

- The number in column B has a match in column A

- And the corresponding cell in column C is not blank

- And the corresponding cell in column D is blank

In the example below, cell D4 should be red

If there's a match (Column B to Column A) and;

- If cell in column C is not blank and cell in column D is not blank, do nothing.

If there's a match (Column B to Column A) and:

- If cell in column C is blank and cell in column D is blank, do nothing.

Here's the formula I attempted but didn't get it to work.

IF(AND(C2"",D2=""),MATCH(B2,$A$2:$A$15,0),IF((AND(C2"",D"")),"",""))

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.

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 JPY, the next column show Yuan sign and the cell in green

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

How to make that happen?

I have two columns. In column B is the date of "last check". I column A is the date of "next check". I would like to have cell A2 in yellow color 334 days after the date entered in cell A3 and than in red color 365 days after the date entered in cell A3. Same thing for cell B2 related to date entered in cell B3. Yellow color in cells announces that check will expire within 30 days and red color that check has been expired.

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] ...........

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?

Highlight cell in column A if:

Cell in Column A contains numbers 4, 5, 6. or 6.5.

Cell in Column D contains a value

Cell in Column E contains a value

Formula to put in conditional formatting?

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.

I'm trying to discover the best way to accomplish formatting a cell by filling it a certain color based on 2 of 3 criteria of other cells.

Column A has the title of the field. Cells B1:D1 have one of 3 values: Nothing/blank, Complete, or x. If all of the x's are gone within the range of B1:D1, I'd like to automatically format cell A1 to fill in Blue (or any color).

A1__________________B1_________________C1_____________D1

Generic Name______Complete_______________x_____________

If the 'x' in C1 is changed to the value of 'Complete', I'd like A1/Generic Name to be filled in with a color.

I'm having issues with Excel's 2010 conditional formatting. Seems easy to use, but I'm trying to highlight values based on 2 columns of numerical data. Example:

Column F:

6

6

14

Column L:

3

NA

17

I would like Column L to highlight values that are greater than Column F in green. If they are less than Column L then highlight them in red.

Seems I was able to do this with Excel 2003, but I don't understand the 2010 version.

I want to do conditional formatting based on two cell values.

i want to do conditional format the column 'R' based on clolumns 'J' and 'R'.

column 'J' is a text column named PRIORITY which can hold the values P1,P2,P3 an P4.

Column 'R' is nothing but difference of two columns 'M' and 'H'(both are time stamps).Column'R' is in below format.

=TEXT(M4-H4,"h:mm:ss").

column M and H are in below format:

eg: 9/11/13 9:41 AM

Now i want to format the column'R' like

if column J ="P2" and column 'R' > "00:10:00"(10 mins) =it should become red.

if column J="P3" and column 'R'>"00:30:00"(30 mins) = it should become red.

highlighting dates on a premade calendar.

The calendar is made as below:

Tasks

1-1-2014

1-2-2014

1-3-2014

[code]....

The data table is given as below:

Tasks

Date

Task1

1-3-2014

Task2

2-14-2014

I need to highlight the cell in the calendar that matches both the task and the date in the data table. For example- in the situation above, D1 would be highlighted.

I would like to format the color of cell A1 on Sheet 1 based on true or false values from cell range A1:A10 on sheet 2. For instance:

1. If all cells on sheet 2 in range A1:A10 were false then cell A1 on sheet 1 would be red.

2. If some cells on sheet 2 in the range A1:A10 were false and some were true then cell A1 on sheet 1 would be yellow.

3. If all cells on sheet 2 in range A1:A10 were true then cell A1 on sheet 1 would be green.

I have a range of cells where each row relates to an employee.

In Cells (Columns H:L) I want the range of cells on that row to turn blue if the user puts a "H" in one of the cells.

Also it will need to be adapted for "O" , "Y", "X" - each with different colours.

This needs to be repeated on each row for each person.

This is my problem:

A list with numbers in column A, these numbers can be used over multiple rows, sometimes 3, 5 or more/less.

Every time this number changes, the color for the entire row should flip between yellow and no color.

Sequence of the number in column A is not always odd / even. I tried various suggestions regarding this topic but I do not get it straight.

I have columns of figures with times like 5:52:54 and next to them cells with values that i wish to format based on the time.

that is if the time on the adjacent cell is before 8AM then make the value cell have a red border it does not have to be conditional formatting - Excel 2002 in win7/64

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.

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?

Using Excel 2013

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.

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.

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.

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.

I am trying to work with conditional formatting to turn a field a specific color based on two conditions, one of which is variable. The first condition is a list of ongoing events (which can change) and the second condition is a set of known milestones. I want to create a control (check boxes?) that will turn a given field (which has dates in it from another calculation) to either Red, Yellow, or Green.

I was thinking two Dropdown boxes - one for the events and one for the milestones. The user would choose an event, choose the milestone, then choose a checkbox or something to change the color of a field elsewhere in the spreadsheet. Right now, I'm doing this in a very clumsy way by having three checkboxes for each milestone for each event. There are five milestones per event (so 15 checkboxes per event on Sheet2). I will likely have 70+ events so I was hoping for a better way to do this. I've done this for the first three events and need a more efficient way of doing this.

See the attachment : Event Milestones based on Go Date Uploadable.xlsx

How to change the background cell color based on value ranges(s)

I tried conditional formatting but it works between two values only, in my assignment I want to show:

River levels in relation to flood class

>=2m =2.6 =3m major flood (background turns red)

I hope it is possible in Office 2007

I am using the following formula on a conditional formatting to color cell A1 based on cell N5 date =$N5=TODAY()-2

The problem is that I need this formula to consider only weekdays, how can apply formula weekdays to my formula?

I am trying to write a VBA code to color cells.

In Column I

I need a formula to change the color of the cell based upon the following criteria

In cell I3, if J3>7 change color to teal, if H3<$A$1 color cell red, if J3<7 color cell yellow, if J3="COMPLETE" color cell grey, otherwise do nothing.

Is there a way in conditional formatting to have a cell shaded a certain color based on the value of another cell in that same worksheet?
