Font Color Shortcut


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???

Color Column Charts Based On Font Color Data Cells
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.

Change Font Color Based On Adjacent Cell Color
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.

Macro To Color Cells Based On Their Font Color
I have a spreadsheet that i download from the net daily, which is seperated into columns of information.

I want to be able to look down a column and mark a cell in a seperate column if the cell font text is red.

For example looking down column A ... if the font text of a1 is red then mark the cell background colour of T1 red - if a2 text colour is red then mark the cell T2 red .... etc etc.

If the font colour in a1 or a2 ... etc etc is any other colour then do nothing.

I have 5 columns I wish to look down and mark in 5 seperate columns - I have tried to do this by conditional formating but don't know the fomula for checking font colour.

Count By Font Color & Background Color
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.

Font Color Based On Interior Color
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?

Font Color Index
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.

Using IF Function To Change Font Color
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?

Determine Character Font Color
I am trying to create a loop that will check the characters in each cell of a specified range and add that cell to a range object if the first or the last character in the cell is a specified color (red in this case).

Am I using this function incorrectly?

Set redCells = Union(redCells, c)

Set Font Color In VBA Script
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...........

VBA Conditional Formatting - Font Color
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.

Pasting Font Color From Conditional Format To Permanent
I have backwards co-workers that can't figure out how/why to use conditional formatting and have deigned it "not acceptable".

They've requested I fill in a HUGE spreadsheet and change the font color to red if it meets a criteria.

Simple enough to do with a conditional format that compares my data.

HOWEVER, now I need the individual cells to stay red and remove the conditional format (because conditional formatting "confuses" them). Removing the condition causes the color to go back to black. I've tried all sorts of paste specials (formula/format) to no avail...

Conditional Formatting :: Change Font Color Of Cell
Cell B157 is changed by checkbox 1= TRUE, 0 = FALSE
Cell H1 and Cell H2 are percentages changed by the user.

Range(AI8:AQ8,AI12:AQ12,AI16:AQ16,AI20:AQ20, etc) each cell in the range contains a formula, and is protected from the user.

I need the contents of each cell in the range to change font color (independent of each other) when the formula of any of the cells within the range changes - to the following

If B157 = 1

Cells < H1 (a percentage changed by user), would turn Red
Cells > H1 but < H2 (a percentage changed by user) would turn Yellow
Cells > H2 would be Green

If B157 = 0

Cells < H1 (a percentage changed by user), would turn Green
Cells > H1 but < H2 (a percentage changed by user) would turn Yellow
Cells > H2 would be Red

I need it to fire whenever the value of one of the cells in the range changes.

I have tried If statements, Select Case, and a combination of both but just can't get it!
