# Formulas To Format Into Colour

Mar 11, 2008

A fairly simple one I imagine but I've never come across it before, so I ain't sure what to use!

I am working on yearly budgets/balances, and where the total spend against a budget has gone over the budgeted amount I want my formula to format the text red.

Example
Budget Spend Variance
30 35 -5

The formula is also doing a sum of budget minus spend, so if the result is below zero the text needs to be red basically.

## Save Conditional Format Colour But Delete Condition Format

Dec 19, 2006

I have a Sheet ( Named "Summary" for Example ) of about 4,000 Rows that has a LOT of Conditional Formatting.

I Added Another 100 Rows this Morning and when I Tried Saving it a Message Saying that Not All the Formatting for the New Data that had Been Added had Been Saved. Is there a Macro or Something I can Run that will Make the Conditionally Formatted Cells Stay the Colour that they are but Delete the Conditional Formatting Part of it Achieved Using "Format" & "Conditional Format" from the Menu Please.

Ideally I would like to be Able to Enter the Number of Rows ( From Row ? to Row ? ) that I want this to Apply to.

## More Than Three Colour Conditions In Conditional Format

Apr 15, 2009

We have 6 words we need to add to a sheet, each cell needs to be a different colour on the basis of the word.

I was hoping to use CF as the sheet needs to be locked against people editng cells and the like.

My question is, could a conditional format say if "service" colour blue, if "parc" colour green.

If this is possible this would allow me to use 6 different colours.

## How To Count Conditional Format Colour Cells

Dec 27, 2008

Below I have an example from A1 to V1 which have 3 conditional formatting
conditional format 1. if value is 0 then colour red and font white
conditional format 2. if value is from 1 to 10 then colour blue and font white
conditional format 3. if values 11 to 25 colour green, font black

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUV11230507801011121314150170192002523

Result: Red=6 cells
Blue=7 cells
Green=9 cells

## Auto Format Fill Colour Background On Certain Cells

Apr 2, 2007

I have been working on a spreadsheet but I use autoformat for.

For example if the date in the cell matches today's date then it turns the text read and makes it bold.

I was wondering if there was a way to format several cells in a row if a certain criteria was met.

for example

A B C
1 Item Cost Quantity
2 Car £11,520 2
3 Bike £7,500 1
4 Tyres £50 4

Now for example if I set a condition whereas the quatity is greater than 3 then it would highlight the whole row.

So in the example above I would like to to highlight row 4 and Fill colour cells A4,B4 & C4 with a yellow background and Red Text and make the texted bold.

## Excel 2007 :: Clicking Cells To Change Colour Format And Mirroring

Feb 24, 2012

(Using Excel 2007)

What would be the quickest and most efficient way of doing the following:

Example

Sheet 1: clicking once, twice, three times in the following cells to change the fill to Red, Yellow, Green respectively (in Row 22, COLUMNS E H K N Q T W Z AD AG) and mirrorring this format/fill on:

Sheet 2: , mirror the selected fill on sheet1 in E22, H22 , K22 in in E3:N3 respectively example E22 (sheet1) is mirrored now in E3 (sheet 2); H22 (sheet 1) is mirrored in F3 (sheet2) etc etc.

I have 35 tabs formatted in the same way - each tab, as with Sheet 1 is linked to a different row on sheet 2 in the same range as is sheet 1 and would need to replicate the mirorring on Sheet 1 to each of the other 34 tabs.

## Color Format On Numbers Vs Formulas

Dec 3, 2007

Is there a way, WITHOUT VBA, to have a cell turn color if a user overlays a function with a value. Using conditional formatting or an easier way if possible, I would like to have any cells that the user overlays with a number to have a different background color.

I know I could use an event-driven macro but am trying to find a function that can check a cell to see if it contains a formula (or function) or a value.

## Format Cell With Colour And Boxsurround If Cell = "Clos

Feb 6, 2007

It is possible to add something in a spreadsheet VBA to colour a cell Green and put a box surround on it if the cell = "Closed" from A7:V65535

Basically I have four conditions for status of a task and i can only use 3 formats on conditional formatting so i need some code to format the last remaining status type which is "Closed"

Got this part of code to make it the correct colour

With Selection.Interior
.ColorIndex = 4
.Pattern = xlSolid

## Format Formulas, Constants, Numbers & Text Cells Differently

May 8, 2008

I am attempting to write a VBA function that will add textual formatting to each cell that has content. I am just learning VBA; so far, as an example I have

Sub NewSub()
i = 1
j = 1
Do
Cells(i, j) = "'" & Range(i.j).Value & "',"
i = i + 1
Loop Until i = 40
End Sub

but, as I'm sure you'll notice, it does not work. In essence I want to wrap quotes and follow with a comma each cell that contains any content. The actual content test I haven't gotten to yet.

## Colour Data Points On Chart From Dynamic Cell Colour?

## Conditional Format - Highlight Cells In Column That Have Entered Numbers Rather Than Formulas

May 29, 2013

Col A - budget items (description)
Col B - budget dollars
Col C - actual dollars
Row 10 - summation Cols B and C

When the budget is prepared the actual dollars in Col C are equal to the budget dollars for all items. For instance the formula =b2 is placed in cell C2. As time passes the user records actual dollars in Col C for each item by entering the actual amount directly into the cell. Actual dollars do not become known all at the same time, so that Col C will contain a mixture of formulas and entered numbers.

How can I highlight the cells in Col C that have entered numbers rather than formulas.

## How To Make Arrange Colour Equal Cell Colour

May 23, 2014

A column of cells can be 1o different shades of green according to their value (achieved by using conditional formatting.) I want to arrange that at a certain time all the cells of a part of the row of a formatted cell are the same colour.

## Colour 7 Cells In A Row And Then Switch Colour?

Jul 17, 2014

So I have a macro that colors the selected cells in a certain color. Now im looking for a code that will switch that color every 7th cell, the cells will only be selected horizontally. For example:

if the selected range is 10 cells, 7 of them should be in one color and 3 of the should be in another. But if the selected range is 15 cells the first 7 should have one color and the next 7 should have another and then the last one should have the first color again, and so on..

## Colour Rows With More Than One Colour

Nov 24, 2011

I'm creating a worksheet which tracks pupils progress in our school. down the left there is a column to put in the level they came into our school on - eg 1C or 3B etc.. to the right of the level is a colour coded row which shows Pink, Yellow and Green - if the pupil makes it into the green part of their level by the time they leave then they are on target.

Basically I have a column of cells which use a data validation list which is linked to another sheet with a list of levels. What I want to happen is when I select the level - it fills the row to the right with the correct colours.. I've attached a picture to show you what i'm trying to do.

Reason being is - we might have 6 kids on L3, and 1 on L1 so the number of rows needed for each level changes - at the moment I'm having to copy and paste - which although is easy enough, it is a bit tedious when you have a whole bunch of pupils to put on the grid.

I can't find the option in imageshack to use a thumbnail

## Using Cell References In File Paths For Formulas To Create Dynamic Formulas

Dec 3, 2013

I am using a lot of linked reports that have to be rewritten each month. For example smaller formulas look like this:

=('S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B\$228*2)+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B\$262+'S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING201311 November[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]Production Parts'!B\$292

What I want to do is extract the file path from the above formula and make it a composite of several cell references.

So what I need is to have a cell where they can change the month and another where we can change the year. So I set up several named cells that look like this:

_MONTH =11 November
_YEAR =2013
_JOBCARD ='S:PUBLICProductionJob CardsMOLDING
_PATH =_JOBCARD & _YEAR &"" &_MONTH

I tried several versions, I am hoping for something like this:

=('_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$228*2)+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$262+'_PATH &"[440A SIDE SPOILER JOB CARD.xls]"Production Parts'!B\$292

## Converting Formulas To Relative/absolute References With Formulas Referencing Other Sheets

Dec 15, 2008

I've found a few macros that will automate changing cell references from absolute to relative and they work great. However, when I run the macros on formulas that have references to another worksheet or workbook, the macro will not work correctly.

## Formulas To Hide Partial Concatenate Data And Determining Two Other Formulas

Dec 11, 2013

I'm trying to automate creating certain keyword combinations I need, based off of the values I input into reference cells in columns A - E; the goal is to compile a list of keywords which I will then use to track my rankings in search engines.

I'm looking to only output 500 keywords, so some of the cells in columns A, B, C & E will not contain data (column D will always have a primary Geo-target listed). This results in some of the concatenate formulas I've created outputting partial data (i.e. if there is no data in cell A10, and cell D2 contains the word "Knoxville", then cell I10 will output the data, "Knoxville "). How can I setup conditioning formatting or a formula so that these auto-generated cells appear blank if one of the reference cells has no data within it?The reason why I need the above to work is because I want to setup a formula that automatically counts the # of keyword combinations created by the data entered into any of the reference cells. With the partial combinations being listed, it skews my data. Which leads me to my next question: what is the best formula for counting the # of cells containing a full keyword combination from any of the cells listed in columns G - O (minus the data in the header cells; i.e. G1, H1, etc...)?Lastly, is there a formula I could use that would then aggregate all of the full keyword combinations within the "Complete Keyword List" column (column P)?

## Excel 2007 :: Formulas In Cells Not Being Recognized As Formulas?

Jan 10, 2013

I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.

## Paste Formulas As Values (strip Out Unwanted Formulas)

May 13, 2008

I have a macro running this code to strip out unwanted formulas and formatting.

Sub Quote_Wrapup()
'To stop screen flicker
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

Range("CDandC").ClearContents
Range("qdata5,qdata6").Font.ColorIndex = 2

'To delete delivery address lines if 1st line empty
If IsEmpty(Range("deliver_line1")) _
Then Sheets(1).Range("deliver_rows").EntireRow.Delete
'No End If required as only one action as a result of the If

Range("Item_Nos").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).EntireRow.Delete
Columns("A:E") = Columns("A:E").Value .........................

A spreadsheet based on my template has been sent to me because the macro won't run properly. When I try to run the macro I get a Runtime Error '1004' Method 'Range' of object '_Global' failed on the following line. Columns("A:E") = Columns("A:E").Value.

Is it possible to hide formulas from the formula bar while still having the formulas active?

## Cells Colour Equal To Another Cells Colour

Jul 19, 2012

I want a cell to be equal to another cell including the colour, conditional formatting as the colour will have no relevance to the cell value i.e. the colour will be set manually dependant on what stage of the lifecycle it is at

The original cell may have a date and be yellow and I want the target cell to be yellow with the same date, if someone then changes the original cell to be red the target cell should automatically change to Red

Is there an easy way to do this or do I need some VB script?
