I am just looking for a keyboard shortcut macro. I change the font color in rows one at a time to either blue or red by selecting that row and using the format toolbar to select the color I want. Is there a macro shortcut for changing font color?
Even further, can the macro be able to change the font color of the entire row without highlighting the entire row? Meaning if I only have 1 cell selected within the row I want to color the font and apply the shortcut, can it color the font in the entire row???
I am trying to use VBA in Excel 2007 to change bar chart series colors. I have found a few posts that link it to a cell background, but I'm struggling to find one that does the font color.
It would be great if I could change the bar chart series to match the color of the text in the A column, so that if I highlighted the value in A1 and changed the text color to orange for whatever reason, the chart updates the value of 1.2 to an orange bar (see below).
I have attached the relevant spreadsheet for which I need to alter the color of the columns based on Site number ( Sheet 1). % Mortality will be represented in the Y-Axis, and the Site numbers would be on the X-Axis. All columns (% Mortality) except one will be of the same color, and the one of a different color will indicate a specific site. As an example, site 86 is colored differently. The way I require the chart to look is shown on Sheet 1.
After reading through some great posts on Ozgrid, I managed to do this using conditional formatting (Sheet 2), but that sort of falls short because I am required to add a data table to the chart, and the parameter that is indicated by the column bars happens to appear twice in the data table.
I was wondering if this can be automated maybe using VBA, but with the possibility of simply matching the color of columns with the font color of respective entry in the data series.
I have two columns. The first one (A) contains cells that have different Fill colors. The second column (B) contains text adjacent to the colored cells. I am trying to change the color of the text in the second column (B) to the corresponding color in the adjacent cell in the first column (A). I don't think conditional formating works well in this situation. I believe the solution would be some sort of macro.
I have font color white in blank cells in column E and I (from row 5 to row 245) so the visitors will not see the text. If any of these cells become yellow (color code is 6), the font color will become black so visitors can see the text alot far better than white. I've tried this code myself after this post but nothing happen
I would like to have cells that conditionally format the font color in the cell based on the background color of the cell. Essentially I have a matrix with some cells highlighted in red, yellow, or orange. There are values in each cell of the matrix. If a value is 0 I want the font to be grey. If the value is NOT 0 AND the cell backgorund color is NOT white, I would like it black and bold. Is there any way to do this in excel or using VB?
In excel 2000, I am trying to count the lines in a spreadsheet that has the first cell in each row highlighed in yellow. Additionally, I am trying to count the number of rows that has a red font used in the cell in column D.
I have reviewed other posts by searching counting highlighted cells, but I do not understand how to complete the entire process. One of the suggestion was to create a vb script in combination with using =cellindex(??). I do not really understand how to create this, name it and the run it.
I copy/paste a good enough information and i like to separate these automated information into different colored rows using keyboard shortcuts. I can't use Conditional Formatting, because i have to investigate each piece of information before I color it a certain color.
For example: Color Purple, Green, And Red
Press Ctrl+1 = Color Purple Press Ctrl+2 = Color Green Press Ctrl+3 = Color Red
I have a spreadsheet which has some cells with blue font. If anyone tries to manually change the contents of these cells a worksheet change macro reads the colour index of the font and, if it is 5 (blue), uses "application.undo" to repair the damage.
When I use the sheet on another computer, the same font colur is being read as a four digit number, 4015 I think from memory, and the code doesn't work.
I have a script that sets font color. I think it uses something called "myColor" to define the color, and then pulls the color from a palette of 57 colors.
But how can use the "color" property instead, so I can have a broader range of colors? I can't tell how it would fit into my code. "MyColor" doesn't even show up in Excel's help file.
Here is the code. How can I adjust it so that I can use, like, "RGB 0, 0, 255" instead of color 32?
Or how would you code it so you could set color that way?
Private Sub WorkSheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Target.Column < 8 Then Exit Sub If Target.Column > 9 Then Exit Sub Dim myColor As Variant Select Case Target.Column...........
try explaning this again....Also conditional formatting will not work... Looking for a formula in excel to do this--- I have a lottery numbers system in the 3 digit and 4 digit numbers...In row A we have the 3 digit that were drawn about 3000 ---3 digit numbers and in row C we have also 3000 numbers for the 4 digit ....All we need to do is Highlight All the even numbers and make them RED font---in the 3 and 4 digit rows... Is there a way to do that????? A--row-----C--row 123---------4429--make the 2red in the 3 digit row and 442red in the 4 digit row. 033---------5579--nothing in this row 229---------2200---etc....
I want to apply different font colors to text written in an excel comment box using VBA code (Please check the attached screenshot) I was able to apply one colour to all by using the following code, but am not able to apply different font color to each charater/bunch of characters.
Range("B7").Comment.Shape.Select True Range("B7").Comment.Text Text:="A" & Chr(10) & "B" & Chr(10) & "C" With Selection.Font .ColorIndex = 9 End With
I am wanting to be able to find the last row of data (range changes on a monthly basis) and change the colour of the font to white for the entire row. I don't want to delete the row as contains totals but want the font not visable.
So i have a workbook with 3 sheets in. Each sheet has various titles in it all in BLACK BOLD Text. Under each title it has various items these are in different colors red / blue / grey 40%. What i want is to have an event that just displays the tite + say the blue items and all others will be hidden.
I'm trying to use Excel to keep team standings for a baseball board game. I had no problem calculating wining percentage. Finally figured out how to calculate 'games behind.' Now I'm wondering if there is a way to change the font color of a team name based on their wining pct?
A typical row contains: A2(Team Name), B2 (Wins), C2 (Losses), D2 (Pct (B2/(B2+C2)), E2 (GB). Is there a way to use the IF function to return the 'Team Name' in green if D2>.500, 'Team Name' in red if D2<.500, and 'Team Name' in black if D2=.500 ??
I would like the color of an entry to automatically be set depending on an input. For example if “R” is entered into the cell, the color of the text would automatically be green. Is a macro the best way to handle this? If so, what would the program language look like? Other solutions?
I am trying to figure out what the formula would be to change the font color if the entered number is less than the quota.
I'm making a spreadsheet for work that each of the reps will punch in their daily numbers, and, for example, if there quota was 70 and they are <70 than the font will turn red, and if greater or equal to 70 it will turn green.
macro that will change the cell color based on text? I have a list of titles in column B. Everytime the word 'Car' is found in this column, I would like to change the font color in columns C-G to the color white within the same row.
This appears to be so simple, I've searched the forums and have found almost the right VB code but not quite. I have a 3000 row spreadsheet with various columns. Column M can either be PASS, FAIL, REJECTED, IN PROGRESS or NOT ASSESSED. I need the rows (A to M inclusive) to change colour and text colour dependent on this condition.
I almost had an answer with Select.Case but I couldn't get the formula to work with text, only numbers.
