# Formula For Conditional Rule To Make Row Change Colour Over Multiple Sheets

Jul 10, 2014

I want to change the colour of rows depending on the letter that is in a column. I want it to do it over all the sheets of the document. In the G column there will be letters like 'W' and 'L' that signify something and I want to make it clear by changing the row colour fill. I've tried a few formulas I found by googling but they didn't work. I should point out that the letters are connected, so if I put a 'W' on the second sheet it appears on the first sheet as well.

## Multiple Criteria Per Conditional Formatting Rule..

Sep 18, 2009

how to adapt the solution so it would work in multiple cells. Since I was told to start a new thread, here it is. I want to format a cell based on its contents, If it has one of three entries, it should be greyed. I then want to use the conditional format across the whole page, but the solution given in the other thread refers to a single cell, how can I do this without that reference?

## Multiple 'if-thens' (Chain Rule) With Two Sheets

Feb 4, 2010

I have attached a sample file with two sheets.

Sheet 1 has two columns, 'A' represents a parcel number, and 'B' represents an indicator for the plat name in which the parcel number is located.

Sheet 2 also has two columns. 'A' represents the same indicator as Sheet 1 Column 'B' and Column 'B' is the formal name for the plat.

What I hope to achieve is Sheet 1 Column 'A' to be the parcel number (as it currently is)and Column 'B' to be the formal name for the plat (instead of the number).

As you will notice, the plat numbers on Sheet 1 Column 'B' can repeat many times. A plat number of '0' would mean it is not associated with a plat and therefore should return a blank.

The 'real' file has over 275,000 parcel numbers. All total, there are approximately 8800 differnent plat names.

Due to my 'lacking' skill level, I need it to be a macro as I have yet to learn other methods.

## How To Make Same Formula Change In Multiple Places

Jul 7, 2014

I want to change the references in a VLOOKUP formula that is in 20 columns that are not all next to each other. The current formula is:

=VLOOKUP(\$AF5,' COUNTY ROLES '!\$B\$4:\$D\$69,3,0)
and I want the new formula to be
=VLOOKUP(\$AF5,' COUNTY ROLES '!\$B:\$D,3,0).

Is there a way to do this without having to change it in the first cell of each column and then copy/paste it all the way down each column?

## Change Colour In A Cell - Conditional Formatting

Dec 4, 2008

I want to change the colour in a cell depending on the sum of two other cells.
ie
A3=1,B3=1
A4=2,B4=1
A5=1,B5=0
A6=2,B6=4

So i want if
A3+B3>2 THEN C3 TO HAVE GREEN COLOUR
A4+B4>2 THEN C4 TO HAVE GREEN COLOUR
A5+B5>2 THEN C5 TO HAVE GREEN COLOUR
A6+B6>2 THEN C6 TO HAVE GREEN COLOUR

SO IN THE END ONLY C4 AND C6 WILL HAVE GREEN COLOUR.

Is there any formula to do so with conditional formatting?

## Conditional Formatting Colour Change Based On Dates?

Jan 8, 2012

I have a simple due date spread sheet for tasks that need completing at work. I am able to make the 'Due date' cell turn red when it is equal to or less than todays date, using conditional formatting. No problem.

I also have a 'Date closed' cell which is populated with a date when the task is complete.

What I am struggling to do however is change the red 'Due Date' cell to Grey once the 'Date Closed' cell is populated with a date. In fact I would like the whole row to be greyed out once the 'Date Closed' cell is populated.

I also have an 'Open / Closed' cell, which tells me if a task is open or closed, being chosen from a drop down I installed. Could this be used as an alternative to the 'Date Closed' cell. ie If someone selects 'Closed' in cell A4 the whole A row goes grey.

## Excel 2003 :: Conditional Formatting Not Working And Cannot Change Colour Of A Cell Or Writing?

Sep 23, 2013

Excel 2003

On one of our computers at work, Excel is acting especially strange. The conditional formatting in Excel on one of our computers is not working. In addition, we cannot fill a cell with any color or change the color of the writing. We can click a color for the letters and type it in, but immediately after another cell is highlighted, the writing goes black again. When we try to highlight multiple cells with the cursor, the cells are black instead of the normal color. This happens to not just spreadsheets that are new, but existing spreadsheets on our shared drive from only this one computer as well. No other computers are affected this way. All other computers show the spreadsheets fine and do not have any functionality issues.

## Created Validation Drop-down List - Can I Make The Row Now Change To The Colour That Relates To The Selection From The List

Jan 13, 2009

I am trying to create a fairly simple spreadsheet with about 8 columns and about 400 rows. One of the columns features a drop-down list with about 8 or 9 different options. Dependant on which option is selected, i would like the entire row to change colour with that option.

For example:
FAILED - whole row changes red
SUCCESSFUL - row has no fill
Tested - row changes to orange

etc.

Is this possible within Excel 2003?

## Set A Conditional Formatting Rule That Makes A Cell Red?

Jan 9, 2014

I want to set a conditional formatting rule that makes a cell red or green depending on if the value in the cell is larger or smaller than the value in another cell +2% or -3%. If neither of these conditions are met no formatting should be applied..

a) In the cell (R104) where the condition is set I have the following formula:
=if(BP104=0;"";BQ104/BP104) (the values in BP104 and BQ104 is retrieved from a database)

b) The conditions I've set in R104 are the following

1) =isblank(\$R\$104) (condition: "nothing")

2) =\$R\$104<\$R\$106-0,02 (condition: "red")

3) =\$R\$104>\$R\$106+0,03 (condition: "green")

c) In cell R106 the value there is a value of 90%

The conditions seem to work fine when the value in R104 is higher or lower than the conditions set in 2 and 3 above but when the value is blank in R104 the cell goes green, which it shouldn't.

## Multiple Pivots With The Same Row - How Do I Make Them Change At The Same Time

Oct 22, 2009

I'm using Excel 2003 for this project.

For example: -
I have 3 pivot tables with the same row 'Media' (TV, Neswpaper, Magazine) and each has count as the data field (number of people who read/watch) then each pivot has a different column, Region, age, ***.

If I change the row of the first pivot to only show TV, how do i code it so pivot 2 and 3 only show TV also? I may have upto 20 pivots inthe end.

I found the below code to do this for page fields but can't adapt to rows -

HTML Private Sub Worksheet_PivotTableUpdate(ByVal Target As PivotTable)
Dim ptTable As PivotTable, ptItem As PivotItem, vFields As Variant, lngField As Long
On Error GoTo ExitPoint
vFields = Array("filed1", "field2", "field3")

Application.EnableEvents = False
For lngField = LBound(vFields) To UBound(vFields) Step 1
For Each ptTable In ActiveSheet.PivotTables
If ptTable <> Target Then
With ptTable.PivotFields(vFields(lngField))
.CurrentPage = Target.PivotFields(vFields(lngField)).CurrentPage.Value
End With
End If
Next ptTable
Next lngField
ExitPoint:
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

## Check 10 Different Text Values And Return False For All Of Those In The Conditional Formatting Rule

Sep 13, 2007

Allows me to check like 10 different text values and return false for all of those in the conditional formatting rule. When those are not present, the conditional format is true thus applying the format.

I tried
=NOT(FIND("text1",\$A\$1,1))
It did not work because I believe this statement doesnt give the rule its TRUE value its looking for.

I am having trouble with this, to clarify I need the below...
Cell has conditional formatting checking for text1 text2 text3...text 10ish and if they are present nothing will happen and if they arent present then format the cell.

EDIT: to clarify, the code should look for either text1 or text2 or text3 so on...

## Conditional Linking Between Multiple Sheets

Nov 24, 2008

Okay, now on to the question:

I have three sheets "Contacts"/Sheet 1, "Judges"/Sheet 2, "Sponsors"/Sheet 3. Row 1 and 2 have been used as headers in each of them.

I would like to be able to enter a value in A3 of Sheet 1, such as 'judge' (a number would work fine too), and have the contact information in the same row (columns B-M) copy into the next available row of Sheet 2 in columns B-M.

I don't know if a formula exists for this but if I could type anything in the formula box and have Excel be smart enough to figure out what I'm asking I'd type something like this:

"Hey Excel. Follow this formula: IF 'judge' in sheet 1, A3; THEN copy sheet 1, B3-M3 to sheet 2, B-M next available row...Then do the same thing for 'contacts' but copy into sheet 3."
