shade the rows with alternating colors so that all the data pertaining to a give ID can be easily spotted. In the example above, I would need A2:C4 to be shaded one color, A5:C5 another color, and A6:C8 the first color again.

Conditionally Format Each Group Of Rows And Each Column And Color The Cell In Each Column

Nov 27, 2009

I've a worksheet that is 3750 rows of cells from A to DT and contains only numbers with the exception of a header row. The rows are in groups, primarily 4 rows, although there are exceptions - these rows are separated by blank rows. Small example as follows.


I have been trying to conditionally format each group of rows and each column and color the cell in each column of four (or less) numbers in each group that represents the maximum number.
It was easy enough to come up with the conditional formatting BUT it will take forever to do this manually. I've been told to use a macro but I know nothing of programming. Has anyone seen or heard of a macro that might already be written to perform this onerous task.

Format All Rows Where 1 Column Meets Condition

Jan 21, 2008

I'm trying to Multi-Select rows in order to format all rows, in "One Step" if the cell in col. "A" = 1. I managed to write the hereunder code but I'm still frastrating because I don't like the first RNG setting command. How can I avoid declaring RNG as row(1) and still be able to run the code. I assume I need some other Range set for RNG which, unfortunately, I could'nt find and the command I used includes row1 in RNG although cell A1 = 5.

Sub Conditional_Multi_Rows_Select()
Set RNG = Rows(1) ' this is my problem
LR = [A65536].End(xlUp).Row
For R = 1 To LR
If Cells(R, 1) = 1 Then
Cells(R, 1).EntireRow.Select
Set RNG = Union(RNG, Selection)
End If
Selection.Font.Bold = True
Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 3
End Sub

I had in mind to use:

Set RNG = Rows(65536)
but this will not make it a "neat" vba code, either.

Conditionally Format Rows Based Duplicates Only Found In First Column?

Dec 6, 2013

I'm trying to conditionally format rows of data based on duplicates in the first column, then filter the results. I have a table of data with mutiple variables assigned to different "headings" that looks a little something like this:



[selects the table, then GoTo Special selects the blanks, fills in the blanks with the cell above, then Copy and Pastes As Values the entire table again to fill everything in]

I’m stuck on how to input a formula into the conditional formatting window that will:
Format the text to white in columns A, B, and E based on there being a duplicate above that row in Column A only. i.e. conditionally format the values with a * below:



If I use the conditional formula I found: =A1=A2, then cell E3 gets made white text when I don’t want it to, hence the “referencing column A” part of the question (Column A is always a unique ID number whereas Column E can have a duplicate in the row above). [Edit: Why can't I type Enter or put a line break here... I'll try re-edit at home...] When I go to filter on Column C for YYY again, the conditional formatting needs to realise to un-white the text, which is my next headache because it means conditional formatting that acts relative to hidden rows as a result of a filter... Oh and did I mention the client wants this done in 2003? This is an afterthought though – as I can force them to use 2010 if need be

Convert Cells With Percentage Format To 'same' Decimal In A Column With Mixed Format

Jun 7, 2006

I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.

Copying Only Rows With Data In First Column - Skipping Rows With Blank First Column

May 12, 2014

I have 2 columns of data E and F. Column E has 11 different words that randomly repeat, Column F has 10 years of dates, about 1,000 entries (10/11/12 format). Both columns values come from formulas.

I am trying to copy cells E & F to columns K & L starting in row 2 only if there is is data in column E (one of the 11 words) and skipping all others rows. Both the E & F values of tthe row must be copied together, i.e if text is in E45, then copy E45 and F45 into column K and L starting with K2 & L2. This is a task which will be repeated multiple times as data is replaced in columns A-D.

Compare Column B With All Rows In Column A If Match Place In Column C?

Aug 13, 2014

I want to compare two columns. I would like to see if the contents of column B appear anywhere in column A, for any amount of rows, and if it does, to place the match in col C.

So in the example below, red in B1 would be checked in A1 through A1000 or however long A is. When any row has red, place that match in that row for C.

This would be repeated until all rows in B are complete.

Col A: red
Col B: red
Col C: red

Col A: red
Col B: blue
Col C: not found

Add Empty Rows And Then Format

May 3, 2012

My frist row of data start at 4:4 but when I run the macro it add a line in underneath this which I would prefer it didn't, again due to my lack of knowledge I placed the following at the end of the macro to hide this row

'ActiveSheet.Rows("5:5").Hidden = True',

I would prefer if this row was not created??

After the macro runs (or during) I would like to have the format changing so the border does not show up between the cells, I would just like an outside broader from a:z columns.

Public Sub My_Insert()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("A6"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _

[Code] ........

Format Range When New Rows Added

Jul 24, 2009

I have a worksheet on which users will enter data one row at a time, in columns A-K. When the user starts to enter data in a new row #, that is, when they make any column in the next, unused row have non-blank value, I'd like the sheet to update the borders of the row for columns A-K. I want the Range from A1 to K# to have full borders, so that the whole data set is outlined and easier to read.

For a bonus, I'd like the formulas from the previous H, I, and J cells copied down into H#, I#, and J#, adjusted appropriately for their reference changes.

Normally, I would work around the edges of such a VB problem by recording the actions manually and then modifying that code as I learned more. But I'm not sure if what I've done is the right way to start that process. I think that if I use the CurrentRegion property, and the Worksheet_Change event, I'll be well on my way.

Conditional Format Multiple Rows?

Feb 19, 2014

Is it possible to alternate how a condition works over many rows? Say column C has work order numbers eg. C2:C7 shows WO1234, C8:C15 shows WO1235, C16:C25 shows WO1236 and C26:C30 shows WO1237. What I would like to do is have rows 2:7 red, rows 8:15 blue, row 16:25 red, rows 26:30 blue and repeat to end (the range would be column A to column N. Ive used =MOD(ROW(),2) for every second row but am not sure how to get it to look at many rows and alternate as needed.

Conditional Format Over Range Of Rows

Feb 25, 2008

I've been trying to get around the 3 rule limit for conditional formatting,
and I've found the code I need on the site


I've changed it to suit my needs

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A2000")) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Target
Case Is = "Test"
icolor = 6
Case Is = "Test2"
icolor = 12
Case Is = "Test3"
icolor = 7
Case Is = "Test4"
icolor = 53
Case Is = "Test5"
icolor = 15
Case Is = "Test6"
icolor = 42
Case Else
End Select

Target.Interior.ColorIndex = icolor

End If

End Sub

This works great for one cell, but I need to format a row range based on the single cell.
So if Test is entered into A1, then it changes to yellow, I also need the next 6 cells on the row to change too- In this case [B1:G1].

But it needs to cover the range in the code A1:A2000

VBA Copy, Paste Rows And Format

I have been trying to set up this macro to copy and paste rows where a tick box is checked. The macro needs to transfer the row A:H over to sheet 2 then insent the data acording to property title either A, B, C etc. into formated tables which then feed into a bar and pie chart. I have tried posting this question up in sections hoping that i could get the bits of code i need and then work out how to do the macro but I have had no luck since my VBA skills are poor. I have attached the file

Dim Target As Range
Dim vTemp As Variant
Dim WS2 As Worksheet
Set WS2 = Sheets("Sheet2")
lRow = WS2.UsedRange.Row + WS2.UsedRange.Rows.Count
For Each Target In Range("I1", Cells(Rows.Count, "I").End(xlUp).Address).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
vTemp = Target.Value
If VarType(vTemp) = vbBoolean Then
If vTemp = True Then
vTemp = "*"
On Error Resume Next
vTemp = WorksheetFunction.Match(" Total*", Range("A" & Target.Row, "A" & Rows.Count), 0).....................

Conditional Format Rows 4+ Criteria

Mar 7, 2007

What I am looking to do is format a row so that it is highlighted if one cell in that row meets one of two criteria or if another cell in that row meets one of two criteria: I was hoping to use the excel conditional formating tool but I'm stumped as I need 4 criteria and it can only do 3 criteria.

The cells in question require a greater than or less than criteria. If could use something like: Formular is =$AJ16 <= -0.11 or =$AJ16 >= 0.11 and
Formular is =$AK16 <= -0.11 or =$AK16 >= 0.11 I would be very happy but it won't let me do this - is there a way it can be done?

Cell Format Dependant On Rows

If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A10")) Is Nothing Then
With Target
Select Case .Value

Case "(None)": .Interior.ColorIndex = Null
Case "One": .Interior.ColorIndex = 38
Case "Two": .Interior.ColorIndex = 18
Case "Three": .Interior.ColorIndex = 35
Case Else: .Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
End Select
End With
End If

End Sub

My problem is that columns A to H are yellow(36 I think) and are merged cells.
And Cells AW2 to BD2 are also yellow. The cells inbetween are white.

At the moment when the Cell value is "(None)" the cells turn white, I dont want this. I would like them to go to default.

Conditional Format Entire Rows In One Go

Feb 8, 2008

I've got a pivot table that shows different activities their cost, budget and percentage complete amongst other things. I would like to use conditional formatting to turn the font of a whole row grey if that activity is a 100% complete (exactly more then 99,5% complete in this case). I can do this with conditional formatting by selecting the individual rows and then setting the conditions. Example: selected row =$45:$45, Formatting condition =$J$45>99,5%.
However I've got 1500 rows to can I set this condition for all rows in one go?

Pulling Rows From Other Sheet - Skipping Over Rows If Column Is Blank

Jan 17, 2014

I am working in the attached spreadsheet. For anyone who does not wish to open the link, let's say these sheets are titled 'Sheet1' and 'Sheet2'.

Sheet2 looks like this:

Year Cat Name
2013 4 Sal
2013 4 Pat
2013 3 Pat


Now, how may I pull this data into a summary sheet (Sheet1) that skips over any instances where column A ("Year") is blank so it looks like this:

Year Cat Name
2013 4 Sal
2013 4 Pat
2013 3 Pat
2013 2 Pat
2013 5 Bob


Note: All columns are the EXACT same across each sheet(including Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3), if that extra piece of information works.

PS It is fine if, in order for a formula to work, I need to copy and paste the formula for the length of rows per each Sheet to consolidate.


So, in my industry, any summary-level data (shown on Sheet1) must have a linked reference to a particular sheet (Sheet2, Sheet3, etc.) so the user knows where the raw data came from. This is to ensure increased accuracy of data and minimize human error (like, if for example, I accidentally didn't copy and paste all the rows correctly).

I have uploaded the actual sheet to show what the data actually look like. I am trying to pull in 2013 data into my "Summary Page" and would like to have all the data linked to the '2013' sheet but skip any blank rows.

Here is my failed formula:

1 Row Cell Covering 4 Rows But Next Column Divided In Separate Rows

Jun 5, 2014

I am working with an excel spreadsheet. There is a column for "name", and then the next column is for medical condition.

If the same patient has multiple (say, 4) conditions, the rows for "name" are combined into a single cell(let's say, a cell going from row 2 to row 5, witha a single name in the combined cell) , with the next column having four different cells adjacent to the single cell (cell 2 has "bleeding", cell 3 has "fever", cell 4 has "diarrhea", and cell 5 has "rash"). Some patients have only single conditions, single cells.

Will this mess up COUNTS and COUNTIF?

Is there a way to split the combined cell2-5 for ''name" into four cells all containing the same name?

Conditional Format Rows To Highlight Every Other Row With A Value Different Than Previous

Conditional Format Comparing Data Between Rows

Nov 11, 2009

(Core starting issue solved but other threads were created to continue with trouble spots.)

I'm terrified to use VBA just yet, so right now I'm determined to highlight values in my spreadsheet just using conditional formatting.

I have 5 plus 1 columns of data. For example,

A B C D E....F
3 2 4 5 7....2
4 6 1 3 4....1
4 7 4 5 8....4
2 1 5 3 9....1

I successfully applied a MIN formula to compare between columns on each
row and display in F the MIN value. Notice each cell going down F has the
minimum value in analyzing across each row.

Now, I *also* want to apply a formula on the whole F column to compare these resultant MIN values
and give me the MINIMUM value between those as well, so now I'm comparing across
rows. Got it? Now then.....I want the ENTIRE row that has this MIN value in F to be highlighted, because that will be the best choice for the application of what I'm doing. Did you understand this paragraph. It might have been confusing, but I think I said everything correctly, so read it carefully.

I've tried all sorts of "Formula is", "Cell value is", dollar sign this, dollar sign that, no dollar sign this, <, >, =, highlighted ALL the block of data, highlighting JUST the column across the rows of which will be compared, only highlighted one cell, but nothing has worked.

Is my problem that you can't have 2 formulas in one cell? So then I thought I should ADD another condition, but nothing works.

Let me throw in one more element that I did not state. If anywhere down the F column there is a 0, I don't want that to be my minimum. I want it to evaluate and give me the minimum value greater than 0.

Please read everything I wrote carefully. It might be confusing, but I hope someone has an answer, because it sure has frustrated me.

Now, I'm thinking that VBA programming may give me answers, but I am so terrified of macros, I don't know how to begin that. I have this impression based on the many sites I've looked at on the internet that many people do macros and it's quite easy, but it's funny to me that I am so scared. There's something about me freaking out that I won't have a period or a quote in the right place and I'll stress my day away over it.

Find Rows W/same Value In Column A And B And Offset Column C To Next Available Column

Aug 3, 2006

I need to combine rows that have the same value in column a and column b to the same row by offsetting column c to the next available column. For example, I would like the first 6 rows of the provided sample to appear like this.

0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities

Sometimes the values are the same in column c, sometimes they are different. I do not want to delete duplicate rows where they are the same. Sometimes there are 2 rows that have the same values in column a and column b, other times there may be 3 or even 4 rows with the same values in column a and column b. Regardless, I would like the values in column c combined on the same row in the next available column. It would be nice if the duplicate column a and column b rows (with a null column c cell) were then removed, but I could do that in the next step.

0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities
0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities
0014B22<@44>Soil Properties and Qualities
0014B24<@33><i>Available water capacity:<p> High (about 11.5 inches)
0014B24<@33><i>Available water capacity:<p> Very low (about 2.9 inches)

Conditional Formatting To Format Cells On Several Rows Below According To The Day In 2007

Sep 8, 2009

Im having aproblem with Excel 2007 about Conditional Formatting. I have a row of Dates for example 02-01-2009 03-01-2009 04-01-2009 , etc in different columns.

Then what I want to do is use Conditional Formatting to Format cells on several rows below according to the day (if its weekend paint red, if not, dont do anything). I'm using the "Use a formula to determine which cells to format" and the condition is (supposing the cells with dates are A1 to C1)
=WEEKDAY(A1:C1) > 5 .

So with those 3 dates provided lets suppose Januar2nd is not a weekday, so the outputIwant is: Red White White, (Next Row) Red White White, etc for several rows.

Now what I think is not right is it only works for the row in which I have the cursor so its like: (Lets imagine I selected 3 rows on which I want to see that output) Red White White (The row in which the cursor is works fine), but the next row goes Red Red Red and the third the same.
