Getting Conditional Formatted Dropdown List Items To Keep Their Formatting In List
Feb 12, 2014
I found code online that I can put on my sheet to get my formatting properties to stay the same for the items in my dropdown list located on another page. However the code does not work for conditional formatted cells...which is what I need. This is the code that I have that will carry over regular formatted cells. Just not Conditional formatted cells.
In one column I have a drop down list of a dozen different initials with conditional formatting on those cells. I would also like to conditionally format an adjacent text string column based on those initials, but don't want to set up a dozen rules on each cell, one by one. If I set up the top cell with the correct rules I cannot fill the formatting in because the formula is not updated on a row by row basis, but en bloc for the range.
Hi all. I need to create a dropdown list that can handle more than the standard eight rows that data validation allows. My list requires 75 different items in the dropdown. Is there any way that I can do this?
I have about 145+- employees and I made a simple spreadsheet that allows me make a timesheet for every employee. However, I do not want to sit here and select each employee's name and press print 145+ times. Is there another way to do this?
All I would like to do is press print or run a macro and 145 sheets pops out. I have to do this weekly and it would take me an hour to individually do this.
I created a drop down list for products my company sells. Now I am wondering how can I get Excel to display the cost of the item in another column so I do not have to type in the cost each time I bring that product up.
I have searched google and this site but of course I can't describe my search well enough to find what im looking for.
I'm sure this has been explained I just can't find the answer to my problem.
I have in column A and B. A includes two (or may be more) kind of items, i.e. drink and snack. Column B has for example water next to drink and chips next to snack. The list is huge.
How can I generate a drop down list with data which uses the A column to identify the items which it should include. I want to make two separate drop down lists for drink and snack and each should include only those options which belong to those categories. I.e. drink list should be like water, cola, pepsi, etc. The problem is that the list is huge and it's not possible to sort it. Some kind of if statement structure with named range? The drop down should be dynamic in a sense that if I add line to data, it should be picked to the right drop down menu.
I have attached a sample workbook, (Pricing Sheet - Major) within this work book there is a worksheet entitled Price Book which has commonly-used materials, unit prices and labour rates. What he wishes to do is use the contents of the Price Book worksheet within a worksheet called Pricing Sheet to enable him to prepare quotations.
I had the idea to first sort the items in the Price Book worksheet and then produce a dropdown list of these items for use within the Pricing Sheet worksheet and used the VLOOKUP function to obtain the values for unit prices and labour within the Price Book and use them in the Pricing Sheet worksheet.
I am creating a template with 3 layer drop down list where the selection list in second column is dependent on the first column and the third column selection list is dependent on the selection made in second column. The current template is prepared manually and are prone to errors.
The first column: Region Name Second column: Province Third column: Municipality
I have a drop down list in one column which I have formatted to change colour when chosen. What I want to do is to copy the colour on the other two columns beside it when it change. I manged to do one row by adding a new rule using "use a formulat to determine which cells to format" with the formula =$D$29="Awaiting Approval" (This is just one option on the list.)
Now my problem is how I am going to copy the same format to other rows without doing it one bye one or manually i.e. changing $D$29 to $D$30 I did the format painter but it does not reflect the lists on their respective rows/list/cell.
I have a column of information. The first cell has the record number. Then there are criteria the record must meet. If any of the cells have N for nonCompliant, i would like for the record number to change colors. If it were only one citeria, i think i know how to do that, but because there are as many as 10 I'm not sure how to make it change colors for all ten unless i do it one cell at a time.
Also there are several thousand columns on different worksheets, how do i apply the conditions to each column without doing it manually?
It is a product list of office stationary with codes, descriptions and quantities. Using this spreadsheet we input into the quantity how many we want of the item, all well and simple you could call the list a stationary order form.
What I would like to be able to do with this Giant list is to have a function that would extract items off the list into a cleaner consolidated form. As in, if I wanted to order some of item A, C and F, I would like for the second table to just Show ACF without every letter in between or blank cells.
I know a simple method would be to have an IF formula to return the information to a new sheet that I could simply remove blank cell rows (unordered items) and ready for print each time. But I would love to know if there is a better way this could be achieved.
I have basic/intermediate knowledge of excel and can setup the data if need be in order for the function to work, but I can't seem to find the correct function for this project.
It's a quarterly schedule for utility meter readers, divided up into days across the top, and routes/areas down the side. There's a space with each route for the employee ID to go, depending on who's doing it.
Down the bottom of the sheet, there's a few empty lines for all the available employees who haven't been allocated to a route.
On the second sheet labelled EMP LIST, is all the employee IDs. It's also got the areas they work- it's for something I want to implement later.
I can put all the employees into a single column list, then use basic DV to give a dropdown menu by each route, to assign an employee to it. This is pretty straight forward. I've also been playing with this in combination with a countif, so that employees already assigned do not appear in the list.
This is about as far as I've managed to get with it.
I need to get the employees who aren't assigned to anything to appear in a list below the routes. I'm fairly sure this is just another countif, but I'm not 100% on the exact formulas.
I also need the list in the dropdown menu to reset for each day of the quarter, i.e. if I assign an employee to a route on the 30th day of the quarter, their ID will disappear from the list for any other route for that day, but will still be there for the other days of the quarter.
So far the only way I've managed to do this is by duplicating the employee list for every day of the quarter, which is going to get very cluttered, and also makes staffing changes difficult. I'm hoping there's an easier way to do this using one data set.
I've added an example of the sheet. It's one week and it's only got about 1/3 of the routes we would actually have on any given day.
I would like to identify duplicates in a list using conditional formatting in Excel 2007.
I have tried choosing to identify duplicates using the formula that I have found on many threads throughout the message board:
This function works up to 15 characters in a cell, but Excel seems to be treating all digits after the first 15 as the same, resulting in a "fuzzy match" where I want an exact match. Many of the values in my list are 18 characters long, in text format to prevent rounding.
I've noticed that Excel treats the 18-characters values the same way when sorting; for example, it treats these two values as the same:
Is there a way to force Excel to examine those last four digits for the purpose of sorting & identifying duplicates?
I have 3 rows with numbers across several columns, each cell holding one number only. For example:
R1: 1101 - 1102 - 1103 - 1104 - etc. R2: 2101 - 2102 - 2103 - 2104 - etc. R3: 3101 - 3102 - 3103 - 3104 - etc.
A little further down I am having a list where the end user will write down the exact same number. Once the same number has been written into the list, I would like the number shown in the top rows (row 1 to 3) to be highlighted in green, basically telling the user that the number has been entered into the list below and is ok now.
I have a worksheet with a lot of different conditions applied to a lot of cells. I'd like to do some housekeeping, but to do that, I would like a clear and complete list of all cells that have conditional formats attached to them, and what the formula/criteria is for applying said format. I don't even care what the formatting is, but that would be nice too.
So, when I go to my "Conditional Formatting" screen, I get something like:
Now, this doesn't show me much of anything about what the formula actually is. I need to select it and look around. I'd rather just get a full listing of what the rule says...
And where I might have the same rule applied to different ranges of cells And so on.
I'm creating a spreadsheet to keep track of my costs of production in an online game. Within the game there are a range of spawned resources that appear for only a short time before being unobtainable these resources have specific types that is shared between multiple spawns of the resource but each resource spawn has a unique name.
My first worksheet lists all the resources and their various qualities and the later worksheets are meant to allow me to choose from a list resources matching the requirements of the item I'm looking to craft. The example i have shown in the second picture requires Tatooinian Fiberplast and Lokian Wild Wheat to craft so in the Chosen Resource column I would like to have a drop down list allowing me to select the named resource type i would like to use - for Tatooinian Fiberplast the only thing on the list should be Omnitwixi and for the Wild Wheat it should show Fizi and Krad
I am aware there are people with more pressing problems than computer games and as such
Is there a way to create a drop down list from a comma delimited list in a single cell? For example, col A is Name & Col B is the delimited list - Blue,Red,Green (list can be different for each name). Would like a drop down list in col C that allows you to pick one of the values from Col B.
As far as I can tell Conditional Formatting will not work for this problem.
What I need now is some code to colour the rows in the data sheet ("Standards_Data"), so some other code (which is working fine) can then colour data points on a multiple graphs (which will be on the "Graphs" sheet). I've played around with as much code as I can find but nothing has the flexibility that I need or doesn't seem to work at all.
The idea is that users can adjust the colours using the Column A on the "Graphs" sheet to best highlight certain things. Also this list could then be edited as old Standard ID's become redundant and new ones come on line.
So in a nutshell: Colour rows in "Standard_Data" based on value of Standard ID (Column 4) according to the corresponding colour found in the list in the "Graphs" sheet.
I've attached a trimmed down version of the workbook.
I have 3 related dropdown lists that work perfectly, if you enter data from left to right. But, if you click in the cell containing the second list, which is based on the first list, of which nothing has been selected, you can just type any value in the cell. Is there a way to prevent this, or at least validate that what is entered is a value in the list.
