I would typically consider myself a decent Excel user, but I haven't been able to solve this one. Maybe it's just the lack of sleep now. I am attempting to combine 4 cells into one where the last cell contains a date. Below is the formula I am using:
=B3&" "&C3&" "&D3&" "&TEXT(E3,"m/d/yy")
It works when all of the cells have values, but the only problem I am having is that some of the dates (in column E) are blank. When this cell is blank the default date that displays is "1/0/00." If I add the typical, " " at the end it says the formula has errors. The need for the TEXT(E3,"m/d/yy") for the cells that contain dates is throwing me off.
I have a WAY to complicated excel form that I'm going to move to Access but I need to have this working in the interim. The form has a dynamic element, the user can choose the number of items they are ordering and it unhides the required number of text boxes. To keep the scripting down a did a little work-around to update the database using a loop through the form controls:
'Save the main row MainOrderRow = ActiveCell.Row LastRow = MainOrderRow + (ExtraOrders - 1) ' Calculate the last row ExtraOrderNo = 1
For DBRow = MainOrderRow To LastRow
' Save the text box name with the extra order number k = "txtDescriptionMul" & ExtraOrderNo & "" l = "txtQuantityMul" & ExtraOrderNo & "" m = "txtTotalValueMul" & ExtraOrderNo & "" n = "ComboBoxUnitMul" & ExtraOrderNo & ""...................
I am trying to do conditional formatting to make a cell say something for 3 different scenarios. If K6 > G6, then I need M6 to say "Early." If K6 < G6, then I need M6 to say "Late." If K6 = G6, then I need M6 to say "On Time."
In Column Q, Please drive a formula that shows.... after 7 days of column (M)reminder III these words must appear '' File Pending'' in 'COLUMN Q' and at the same, Indicator column (O) will also become RED.
The scenario. Column A has a set (due) date all of the same. Column B is where review dates are typed in. Column C is where the status is, Due = still as yet to be done, but still yet to pass the Due date with no date in Column B (formatted yellow with the text "Due"). Complete = for when a date has been entered in Column B (formatted green with the text "Complete"). Urgent = the review date has passed and with no date in Column B (formatted red with the text "Urgent"). I have tried by editing previous similar formulas but to no avail
In A1 Downwards i have a list of dates for an entire year I have highlighted these cells and wish to conditional format them. I want every 3rd date from a specific date say in cell b1 to be highlighted up and down within the selected area. For example
Im trying to get conditional formatting to look at a completion date in cell A5 and getting cell D5 to change colour depending on the length of time to cell A5. What I would like is for D5 to change to red if there is 4 months or less to the completion date in A5. D5 to change to orange if there is still 4 - 8 months from the completion date A5. D5 to change to green if there is still 8 - 12 months from the completion date A5. Hopefully the formula will also work if cell D6 is looking at completion date in A6 with the same traffic light system and so on.
The dates are in different format with dots in between as shown above Also with respect to date which has already expired, no formatting needed but i need a formula in the next column stating "Expired"
If valid to date is within 90 days from today- RED If valid to date is within 365 days from today- YELLOW
I have a sheet where K5:K26 contains names of months. I would like to conditionally format that column so that any month that is less than TODAY appears red. So, if that column has a cell value of February, the cell would appear red since we are already in March. I would guess this involves a formula using TODAY, but I can't figure it out myself.
I know how to apply conditional formatting; I just lack the proper formula.
I have a large spreadsheet with dates. I want blank cells to be conditionally formatted to turn red and cells with dates older than 1 year to turn yellow. I have cell C1 set up as the current date (Today()) and the others reference the other cells with dates.
I'm having trouble comparing two lists of clients with vlookup. The problem seems to be that the dates are in two separate formats. I'm combining the information to create unique identifiers (=A1&B1&C1).
I am trying to use conditional formatting and its not working for me.
If I put the date 1 Jan 2014 in the cell of E2 I need a conditional format that will turn the cell yellow when it is two month from being a year old, so on 1 Nov 2014 it should turn yellow. Then I need it to turn orange when it is one month away from being a year old, so Dec 1 2014 it turns orange. And then when it is over a year old it turns red, So 1 Jan 2015 the cell turns red.
The formatting I have now turns them yellow, orange, and red but at the wrong times, not sure how to fix that.
We need to track the batteries if it is expired or not.Expiration is 3 months. once you received the battery, you need to put the date in the sheet (A1) and then the expiration will be automatically calculated in B1. another also, in B1, will change its color according to how may days left before the expiration date.
black color if the expiration is < 15 days red color if the expiration is 45 days white color if B1 is blank
I have a spreadsheet where I am tracking tasks. I would like to conditionally format the "Completed" cell red whenever the Due Date has passed to easily identify which tasks are outstangin. And I would like that to happen no matther what date someone opens the spreadsheet. (I think I need to use TODAY() here.) Then once the user enters the actual completed date, the cell would go back to white with black font. Below is a sample:
Due Date Completed 5/8/2006 5/8/2006 5/8/2006 5/8/2006 5/12/2006 8/30/2006
This seems like it would be easy to figure out, but I've spent days on it and am not thinking clearly any more.
I have a workbook (attached) which has two sheets called “Team List” & “Masterfile Data Dump”.
TEAM LIST This is the sheet that I want to populate when the data dump is a pasted into the sheet “Masterfile Data Dump”
MASTERFILE DATA DUMP This sheet is where my data dump will be pasted to, columns A to Q and column R is a formula to work out the FTE
Calculation The reason I want the list to auto populate is that it will change week on week and is a time consuming task keep updating it. I want to be able to type a Team Leaders Name into cell F2 and it populate the list of the agents in that persons team Cells F4:G18 (Name & Surname) along with there FTE (full time equivalent) in Cells I4:I18.
The problem I have is I have no idea how to calculate the FTE sum as the data dump can have one to five shift patterns (rows) for one agent (See my example on the “Master file Data Dump” Sheet of Joe Bloggs. /I have tried to use a VLOOKUP which I have used but this will only return the first value or first rows value of that agents name.
I want to be able to format a whole row with a particluar text colour when a date is entered into column A. I have managed this no problems using conditional formatting. The problem I am having is that I need to change that row's colour again if both colomn A's date is complete and a date is also entered into colomn B.
I have tried conditional formatting without success but I have the niggling feeling that I have read this it is not possible to use this method.
A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.
I'm having trouble putting the correct conditional formatting on a column of dates. Basically, in column 'A' I have a list of appointment dates. Column 'B' contains breach dates for a 10week target. And Column 'C' contains breach dates for an 18 week target. Looking something like this:......
I need to format column 'A' so that the cells will turn Amber if the appointment was after the 10 wk breach date and turn Red if it was after the 18 wk breach date.
I'm desperately trying to work out conditional formatting for different dates.
I have =TODAY() in F3
In the remainder of column F (from F19 to F625) I have either blank cells or varying dates (dating back to 2011 and dates going forward into 2014).
I need to Red/Amber/Green the following:
Green = any dates which are 45 days or more in the future from today's date Amber = any dates which are between +1 and +45 days in the future from today's date Red = any dates which are today's date or a date in the past
I can get one or two of the criteria working i.e. Green and Red, but not the Amber. Is one overriding or ignoring another?
I have a training sheet where the training could expire in either 1 2 or 3 years, i am trying to get the conditional formatting for each to change color when the training is due to expire in 6 months 3 months and 1 month also to show red when expired
I am currently setting up a project timeline, and at each stage i need the cell to change color depending on input. so for instance stage one happen -50 days. i work the date out need for completing and then the actual date is then put in the cell below which i want to go either
Green because it was done early or on time Amber if it has been done but was late Red if has not been done and the current date is now past the date of completion Stay Blank if it is Blank and their is still time to do it
for the green i am using a A2 <=A1 Amber i am using A2 > A1 for the red i'm using =And(A2<Today(),A1="")
the red one conditioning does not seem to be working and if their is nothing in the cell an its within the time its going green !
I have a spreadsheet I'm trying to make which will have various cells change color based upon the date entered compared to today's date. Here are the details of it, and what I've tried to do so far:
Various safety tickets that employees acquire have a 3 year expiry date on them. What I want to do is be able to enter in the issue date, and then have the conditional formatting color the cell that contains the date based on the following criteria:
Green = More than 6 months remaining Yellow = Between 6 months and 30 days remaining Red = 30 days until expiry
Black = Expired (I wanted to eventually add this one, but Excel 2003 was only allowing me to add 3 conditional formatting conditions, so I just went with the 3 colors. I'm getting Excel 2007 later today, so I might be able to add more with that)
Now here is what I have so far:
3 years = 1095 days, 2.5 years = 913 days, 2 years and 11 months = 1065 days
