Highlight Cell If Same Value Exists In Another Column

I'm trying to do a formula without using a marco. The formula would do the following:

- Highlight value in column A if the value is found in column B and on the same line value in column F and I are equal to zero;
- Value in column A could match many value in column B

I tried everything I know but can't seems to make it work.

Highlight Row If Cell Value Exists In Row
I'm trying to make a macro. I'm experienced with Excel (took a college course on it) but am really new to VBA and making my own macros.

I need a macro that will take the item number in cell E4, and highlight the row (specifically columns B through R) where that unique item number is found (they're located in row B).

I'm looking for a macor that can do this work for me without losing data on list sheet.

This data reaches into the thousands and I'm looking to run this off the CASE column.

Determine If Cell Value Exists In Column Of Table
Im trying to write a formula that will check if a name that I have in column A also appears in column B and if it does I want it to return a value for example TRUE in column C.

I'm currently doing a survey and I have all employees in column A (600persons) and then column B I enter thos that have taken the survey. So If an employees name exist in column B he/she has done the survey and then they I get the value "TRUE" or "1" or something else. So in this way I can easily see who has and who hasn't done the survey. I've been trying with VLOOK and so on but I can not get it right? Maybe I need VBA?

Highlight An Entire Column Based On A Cell Date.
I want to highlight an entire column based on whether a cell in that column is equal to today's date.

I know how to write a loop that cycles through all of the columns until it finds today's date and then modify the column's properties, I was wondering if there was an easier way to do it. Also, I want the highlighting to be temporary meaning it should not save.

Finding Whether Value In One Column Exists Or Not In Another
I have serial numbers say 1 to 100 in column A. In column B i have values which are text and numbers combined. In column C I have similar values as in B.

Now, if any value in Column B appears in Column C, then in Column D It should tell me Yes or No or 0 or 1.

I basically want to know whether any value from Column B exists or not in column C. I tried Countif and Vlookup but didn't work.

Determine If Value Exists In Column & Copy Range If It Does
I require a row of details to be copied to another worksheet by typing in a unique ID using a macro so Sheet 1 is a data base of items (every item have a unique code like 1001, 1002 etc) and sheet 2 has a table, and next to the table is a cell, which i need to work like a search engine.

i need to be able to type the unique id in a cell, in sheet 2, then click an Add command Button. This button then finds the unique id in sheet 1, and copies all the items details in the same row, into sheet 2 in the table, then i require the search engine to be cleared for the next item to be added. (Assumed Experience:Below Average, I know few formulas and know very basic macros)

If Tab Exists Put Cell, If Not, Leave Blank
Excel Version: 2000

Workbook has the possiblities of 366 tabs at the bottom, but for a normal calendar year will only have 26.

The tab name is the ending date of the pay period without the year. So for Feb 25, 2007 the tab would be named 0225

On a yearly calculations page I am simply trying to say IF TAB 0225 exists then cell equals '0225'!A2 otherwise the cell should be blank.

I tried this, but gets a reference failure instead of putting nothing...


In this example the possible tab name would be 0102. If the tab exists, everything works fine, but since in this case it doesn't, I get a reference failure. #REF!

I NEED the result to be empty if the tab doesn't exist.

Any idea would be helpful. I'd rather not have 366 tabs when only 26 are needed for any calendar year.

I have a worksheet (SHEET1) where users would enter their ID Number and then they would hit a Submit button. The submit button would then add that ID Number into another worksheet (SHEET2) in a running list of ID Numbers. But before it is submitted, I would like to check for two things:

1. ID Number must be 9 characters long (numbers and/or letters)
2. ID Number must not already exist in SHEET2

If condition 1 is not met, then just have a message box asking user to check their entry and try again.

If condition 2 is not met, then just have a message box saying "thanks" but no addition will be made to SHEET2

To Highlight Active Row And Column
I found this code to highlight the active row. I tried to make it highlight the row and column, but I was not successful. What I really need is to highlight the active row and column above and to the left of the active cell, not the entire row and column. For example, if G10 is active, the highlighted cells would be G1:G10 and A10:G10.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel. Range)
Dim i As Long
Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = xlColorIndexNone
If Application. CountA(Target.EntireRow) 0 Then
i = Target.Row
For i = Me.UsedRange.Rows.Count To 1 Step -1
If Application.CountA(Me.Rows(i)) 0 Then
i = i + 1
Exit For
End If
Next i
End If
Rows(i).Interior.ColorIndex = 6
End Sub

Also, I have fill colors on the sheet and I just noticed that the code removes those fill colors. I need it to not remove my fill colors. The only fill colors it should remove are ones it previously colored.

Highlight Column Values
In Excel 2003, I need to be able to format one column (ie Lead Source) so that if the value in that column is not x,y, or z, it is highlighted or is otherwise visually marked as being out of compliance.

For example, if I have a column that is titled Month, I need to format it such that if the value entered does not match one of the 12 months of the year, it is highlighted.

It is also important to be able to apply this formatting to already existing data, as opposed to as it is being entered (as in list validation). And that is can be easily applied to large sets of data.

I have used conditional formatting in the past to highlight repeated cells, and had tried something similar with this, but am not familiar enough with excel syntax and can't seem to make it fly.

Highlight Row Range Based On Value In Another Column

I have a pretty good grasp of what the code is telling the system to do, however what I am not understanding is how can I have the Code check multiple sets of columns?

ex Columns A,B and C Rows 1:100 need to be checked if they are between a particular range and clolums D,E, and F need to be checked against a completely different set of criteria.

I tried cutting and pasting the Sub, changing the Range values and the conditions, but it always errors out.

When working on a laptop, it is rather difficult to identify the difference between the black arrows and the blue ones. Is there a way to have a macro or event procedure that will cause the selected criteria field (or fields) change its background color (into yellow, for example)? This way, the yellow fields will "stand out"… No more searching...

Keyboard Shortcut To Highlight All Cells In A Column From Bottom To Top

For example, if I'm in column O, row 138, what keyboard shortcut would I need to select ONLY and ALL cells from the row I'm currently on, (in this example, 138) to row 1 and ONLY in that particular column?

Keep in mind that the next time I may be starting at row 1,200, it could be different everytime.

I tried everything I could think of..


and nothing worked to select everything in that column from the row I'm currently on, to row 1.

Conditional Formatting A Column And Highlight The Cells That Fall Within The Top 20%

I would like to highlight the cells that fall within the top 20% of those shown (e.g. if there are 100 quality percentages I want to highlight the top 20 not those over 80%) also the same with call length.

I have a column of numbers and times (mins and secs) and what would like to do is set a conditional format so that the cell turns a colour when the number of any cell is within the highest 20% and the other column turns a different colour when the time is within the lowest 20%.

Find Columns By Name And Highlight Them Certain Colors Based On Text In Another Column
I have a worksheet with 20+ columns. For this macro, I only need to focus on 4 of them. However, none of these columns are ever in a fixed position so the macro would need to find them by name and NOT by column position. Here they are...

1. Vacation Type (will only have a text value of either "Cold" or "Warm")

2. Vacation Started (will always have a date *x/xx/xxxx)

3. Vacation Ended (sometimes it will have a date '*x/xx/xxxx' and sometimes it will NOT have a date and will be truly blank)

4. Number of Days (currently has ALL truly blank cells)


Here's what I would like the macro to do...

Scenario 1 - for "Cold" values
Find "Cold" text values in the "Vacation Type" column
"Cold" values WITH a date in the "Vacation Ended" columnIF there IS a date in the "Vacation Ended" column in the same row, put the number of days difference between the "Vacation Started" column and "Vacation Ended" column in the "Number of Days" column.

The amount of days in the "Number of Days" column will determine whether these cells should be highlighted GREY or RED.

A) IF the number of days difference is 7 days or less, highlight the cells in the "Vacation Ended" column and "Number of Days" column RED.

Selecting Cell A2 Will Highlight/change Font In Cell A1
How can I change the font color or highlight cell A1, when I select cell A2. Cell A2 is still blank, no value entered yet. I also would like cell A1 to return to original font color or no hightlight when cell A2 is no longer selected (active), whether a value is entered or not in cell A2. Let me clearify, (A1 thru N1) and (A3 thru N3) have diferent dates and the font color is white, as is the cell too. Therefor you can not see the dates in (A1 thru N1) or (A3 thru N3).

However, when any cell (A2 thru N2) or (A4 thru N4) is selected (example A4), the cell above it (cell A3) changes font color or highlights, so the date can be seen in (A3). But when cell (A4) is no longer selected the above cell (A3) hides the date (changes back to white font on white cell). Data or a value is not necessarily entered into (A4) for (A3) to change. (A4) is only selected to show the date in (A3). But if data or value is entered into (A4), the date in (A3) will still be seen until (A4) is no longer selected/active.

Highlight The Part Of The Cell
Just "upgraded" my Excel to the 2007 version. In the old Excel, I could superscript part of a cell by highlighting the part I want, then going to "Format" and "Superscript."

In Excel 2007, it doesn't work. Yes, I can highlight the part of the cell I want to superscript, I can right-click and select "format" and "Superscript", and it even then shows as superscripted in the cell. That is, until I hit enter or move to a new cell. Then the superscript is no longer there. The cell is in "general" number format.

By the way, it did work in another cell: mg/l3 (3 superscripted) works. 742 (2 superscripted) doesn't work.

I have used conditional formatting but it seems that I cannot specify an option to look at the last cell in a row, evaluate that cell's value and then apply the formatting. I can only have conditional formatting highlight every cell in that row that matches the condition.

I only want the last cell, which represents the most current data, to be highlighted, as well as the category name, if the condition is met.
