# Highlighting ARRAY Formula Cells

Aug 8, 2006
Essentially I have inherited a spreadsheet which is crammed full of complex array formulas.

No problem in itself as I understand array formulas pretty well (or so I think!). My problem is that when i want to ammend some of these, i cannot easily see what range I need to highlight in order to edit them i.e. I obviously cant do a single cell as its part of an array. I hope I have made myself clear?

So my question is this.

When the cursor is sat in a cell that is part of an array formula, how can I easily find out ( ideally by the array formula range being highlighted in (say) red ) what cells are included in the array formula?

Would conditional formating do the job?

I am using Excel 2007 with a WIN XP OS…. My objective is to color code each cell in Column F within each sub-group based on the following instructions:

1) Column F contains a percentage…. Each sub-group in Column F totals 100%.... Each sub-group is separated as shown on the enclosed sample.

2) Starting with the highest percentage, followed by the next highest, (etc.), I want to sum each subsequent cell until reaching a target threshold (total sum) of 62%.... All cells in this grouping to be highlighted “yellow”.

3) Once the 62% target threshold is reached, the very next highest subsequent cell percentage is highlighted “light olive”…. If there is a tie, the lower number shown in Column E serves as the tie-breaker.

4) All remaining cells within the sub-group are highlighted “light brown” including those denoted by 0%.

5) Finally, if the cell is blank and absent of a % call out, then no highlight is required.

I process a daily spreadsheet having typically in excess of 1000 rows and in turn, I’m looking for a method to automate the color coding….

I found this spreadsheet on here and I have been trying to customize it to what I need. I am trying to have scores from skins match highlighted. I want only the minimum score to be highlighted but if there is another duplicate minimum score I don't want it to highlight anything. I also need to find a way to count the skins won by each player and have it off to the side.

For those not familiar with golf a Skin is a game where you try to get the lowest amount of strokes on a specific hole. Ex- 4 people play the hole one. P1 scores 4, P2 gets a 3, P3 and P4 get 6. The skin would go to P2 who has the lowest score on that hole.

Highlight lowest number in each column not highlighting if there are duplicates starting at L6 down to L11 and for each column till AC. And the same for the group just to the right on attached file.

On row 13 and 14 it tells me who won a skin. I want to tally up the total skins won by each player. so if Joe's names shows up twice on R14 I want it to tell me somewhere in the sheet Joe = 2

If I have an assortment of odd and even values in range a1:j100, using the Array formula {=If(Mod(a1:j100,2),"",a1:j100)} will clear out all the odds, leaving the evens.

Is there a way I can add to this formula to color the qualifying cells (odds in this instance)? I know Conditional formatting is perfectly suited for the job but I am looking for a departure from this.

{=AVERAGE(IF(('Sales Reports'!$A$1:$A$5000=$A3)*('Sales Reports'!$C$1:$C$5000=$C$1),'Break Reports'!$D$1:$F$5000))}

and am copying it to other cells using this

Sub copyformula()

With Sheets("Sheet2")

.Range("B3:B5000").Formula = .Range("B3").Formula

End With

End Sub

It does the copy but removes the { and } thus rendering the formula useless to me. How can I accomplish this task and keep the formula as an array formula?

I tried to drag the formula down and recorded it as a macro but when it runs it takes far to long.

I have a couple of spreadsheets that has several columns each containing several hundred thousand rows of codes. To quickly analyze this data, I am trying to come up with a conditional formatting formula to highlight the respective cells when specific values occur next to each other. A particular code will show up in many cells, but the code that is the respective adjacent cell is always different. I need to know when row A contains, for example, '9928559' and row B contains '36415RT'.

I have an array formula that takes in a bunch of dates and returns the next date that is not in the past:

{=MIN(IF($N$4:$N$28<TODAY(),999999,$N$4:$N$28))}

This works great, but I'm wondering if there is a way I can write it to work on cells that are not adjacent to each other. For example, can I have it operate on only cells N4, N7, N15, and N22? Is there an easy way to do this?

I have spreadsheet that displays many blank cells. I would like all the information from this sheet (example below) displaying on another spreadsheet but without the blank cells.

On the example below I've shown how I want my sheet3 to look. (Cells B19:I22)

The sheet where I want to remove the blanks is Sheet2 B2:AE367

Is this possible using array formulas or macro?

I have a long list (>1000) of increasing temperatures in column A. I use an array formula, {=MAX(A3:A1029-A2:A1028)} to find the largest change between two successive values. What I need to do then is obtain the two values that give rise to that difference (for instance, they might be in A678 and A679). I can't figure out a formula for this.

I can manage it if I insert a "difference" column in B, and use:

=INDEX($A$2:$B$1029,MATCH(MAX($B$2:$B$1029),$B$2:$B$1029,0)-1,1)

=INDEX($A$2:$B$1029,MATCH(MAX($B$2:$B$1029),$B$2:$B$1029,0),1)

but I'd rather keep the number of columns to a minimum.

On the attached sheet I am trying to indicate that enough data has been entered by highlighting the entire column. Any 3 cells in Rows 7-13 and 18-36 will be filled in with any of the values from cells O6-O11 (hidden). When the total = 6 i would like to highlight the entire column to indicate it has been completed.

The aim is two fold: to ensure that the correct number of points is allocated in each race, and secondly to indicate which column is the next to be filled in (as human error sometimes misses the column and adds the points to either the previous or next columns). You could call it idiot proofing the sheet. At present i have the cells in Row 37 conditional formatted to show this, but would much prefer the entire column to highlight.

I'm trying to find a single conditional formula which summarizes multiple text occurrences in a range of cells. I managed to summarize the occurrences in a single cell, but my challenge is that I'm looking for a single (array?) formula for this.

I have a worksheet with column A which contains the condition and column B which contains a text field. I'm looking for a single formula to summarize all the 'AB' occurrences in the cells B4..B11 where the column A is Apple. I managed to do this by using an additional column (column C), however as my worksheet contains over 10000 rows, I would like to use a single conditional (array?) formula summarize the AB occurrences (multiple ' AB's can occur in a single cell) in stead of having to use an additional field per row.

I have attached a sheet as an example. I'm looking for a single array formula in cell C11 which summarizes the 'AB' occurrences in cells B4..B11 where column A is Apple.

I got the following loop that is very slow. The main way (I think) to speed it up is to avoid looking at all the 65000 cells. The columns used in the calculations have data varying from a few hundred cells up to (rarely) dozens of thousands. I assume it would be better if I could replace the 65500 with something indicating the "end" of the data in the column. Also, is there another way to do this process without using a loop?

I am trying to fill in a number of rows with array formula's in the adjucent cells. I use the loop because the number of rows depends on a selection of another parameter which sets the row number before calling the loop.

Lets say I have a column, and i have some dates in that column. between each date entry are blank cells, an undetermined ammount.

ie:

------------

column1

------------

(blank)

1/1/2007

(blank)

(blank)

(blank)

2/5/2007

(blank)

(blank)

3/7/2007

(blank)

... etc ...

I would like some type of array formula, that could

agegrate that whole column into a new column, removing the blank cells.

so the new column would be:

--------

Column2

--------

1/1/2007

2/5/2007

3/7/2007

I was thinking something like... but this doesnt get rid of the blanks...

(this is using google spreadsheet, but ARRAYFORMULA, is the same as hitting "CTRL-ENTER" - in excel.

=ARRAYFORMULA(if(isnumber(A9:A17),A9:A17,0))

I have a large document control register and it is updated daily and posted to a cloud for many people to access. It is very time consuming to constantly jump in and out and highlight and unhighlight as many things as there are and keeping track of which items that need to be unhighlighted. The thing I'm trying to figure out is if there is a formula for this...If i change any cell in a row I want the row to highlight itself entirely, but after 24 hours I want the highlight to expire. Is there a formula or function I can use to make this happen?

I have a worksheet 200+ rows with 7 columns (euro lottery numbers) I had great help last night to highlight any matching numbers. I'm getting lazy now, can anyone help with a formula to highlight a cell in an adjacent column when 2 or more numbers in the corresponding cells match the winning numbers, I know all I have to do is look down the columns and check but if a simple formula could be inserted it would save me perhaps missing something.

I have Column A with 380 cells filled in with numbers (A1-A380) i.e. numbers like..456758, 567848 etc etc

Column B has a subset of those numbers, maybe 80-90 or so (B1-B90).

What I want to do is either highlight the numbers in Column A that also appear in Column B in yellow, OR delete them from Column A altogether

I need to highlight cells for all of the products and rates I need to get pricing for. I have a macro that goes out to my data and pulls in each different rate and program (columns BM:BN). That macro also sets the first note rate in the range to the lowest of the group, so this will always be different.

I now manually highlight each cell that I need to get pricing, but would like to create a macro that looks up those codes and rates in column BM:BN and highlights the cells for me. I need it to highlight in all 7 boxes. I've attached a sample worksheet of what it looks like after I highlight the cells.

I am writing a data validation macro which checks various conditions and highlights cells if they are incorrect.

i.e. If cell in column D = "specific text", then cell in column AH of the same row must = "specific number". If it is not that number, colour the cell red. If another cell in column D = "another specifci text", then cell in column AH of the same row must = "specific number". If it is not that number, colour the cell red.

What I've found is that I can get one condition of this nature to work, but if I run two or more in the one macro, that they supercede eachother (and thus the final one is the only one that works).

See below sample code.

Code:

Dim val As Integer

val = UsedRange.Rows.Count

For i = 2 To val Step 1

[Code]...
