I need to run a loop through a column of values (attachment col B) and when it finds a "J" it will apply conditional formatting to a row of 4 cells directly adjacent. The attachment is a theoretical before & after.

I have a matrix in excel to show % and $ for multiple columns - set up like this:

Rows Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Criteria 1 % $ % $ % $ Criteria 2 Criteria 3

the $ columns are conditionally formatted to highlight the top 10 values on the matrix. is there a way to have the corresponding % cells also highlighted? The % and $ aren't both top 10, so the % would have to be highlighted based on the $ top 10 cells.

I have a spreadsheet with 'due date' for returns in column L and 'received date' for returns, in the adjacent column M.

I would like to get the due date to turn red when it is overdue, ie. the date in the cell has arrived and no return was submitted. By trawlling the forum, I managed to accomplish this with the following in conditional formatting: Cell value is less than or equal to =TODAY()

All's great.....but - I would like the date to turn back to black if I enter a date in the adjacent received column, column M.

In other words, I want to flag a problem if the due date has passed, but once I receive the return and enter the date I receive it, i would like the due date entry to revert back to the original formatting ie. black. So only the outstanding returns are highlighted.

I want to create a conditional format formula which is based on values in 2 cells.

Example:

Cell B1 = 100 Cell C1 = 50

I want a formule for cell A1 which turns red for exmaple when B1 is higher then 85 and Cell C1 is lower then 85. Only in this case the conditional format should work.

I have a drawing register that contains drawing reference numbers in column D. When a new revision of a drawing is issued it is added to the bottom of the list. What I would like to do is any previous revisions to be greyed out and struck through.

The conditional formatting = COUNTIF($D$1:$D$100,D1)>1 works well but strike through all duplicates, I need the most up to date left without the format until it is superceeded

I have a column of numbers (column A) which I'd like to compare to an adjacent column of numbers (column B) and, by row, determine if the number is larger.

If it is, I'd like to place a different colour on the cell. What is the formula I need to use to accomplish this?

Ex: Col A Col B 30,000 5,000 - A is larger than B, therefore A is formatted RED 20,000 20,000 - A is the same as B, therefore no format applied 10,000 15,000 - A is less than B, therefore A is formatted GREEN

I want the conditional format values to change Based on the value in Cell B2.

If the value in B2 is "old", then I want these conditional format conditions for A1:A6. Numbers between 1-2=green text, 3-4=orange text and 5-6=red text.

IF the value in B2 is "new" then I want the conditional format conditions in A1:A6 to change so 1=black text, 2-3=green text, 4-5=orange text and 6=red text.

I know how to do multiple conditional formats but i have no clue how to change multiple conditions based on another cells value.

1. Where there is data in column B 2. Goto first row of data 2. If column J = "Closed" 3. then select Cells from column B to J in that row and colour these cells in red 4. If column J= "Open" 5. the select Celss from column B to J in that row and colour these cells in grey 4. Repeat for next row until you get to cell in column B where there is no data.

Recieve run time error 1004: Method 'RAnge of object_GLobal failed

=============================================================== Sub Colourclosed() Sheets("Risks").Select Dim LastRow As Long Dim i As Long LastRow = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row For i = 8 To LastRow If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B", "J" & i).Select Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 3

[code].....

Note: I've managed to do it for one cell ie for Column B by replacing "If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B", "J" & i).Select with "If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B" & i).Select" This works but only colours in cell in column B, how do i do this so it colours range of cells

How would I make cells in column A to C be highlighted yellow, of which is 0.02 in value be higher than in compared with the adjacent cell in column D ? It is easy to use condition format function to setup the conditions in 1 row. The problem is there are thousands rows in the sheet(of which represents an individual file by each row), and need to have the conditioning format applied on each row independently. How can it be done w/o the need to have format painter applied line by line, of which is a very time consuming.

I want the font of a value in a cell to turn green or red based on the value of the cell below it - NOT based on a set value or range like all of the other examples are based on. I want to apply a formula or condition to the entire table.

Column a has the date for each value, newest date is row 1 and oldest date is row 250. Column b-k has the number value for each animal species we are tracking. If there are more animals than the day before, the value went up and I want the font to be green. If there are less animals than the day before, then value went down and I want the font to be green.

There are about 250 rows in each table and I have 4 tables. I thought I could do conditional formating but I can only find how to change font color based on a set value. For instance, for each day there are over 10 turkeys, then it would be green. That is NOT what I want, see below:

Mon 5 no color change Fri 5 color change to green Thu 4 color change to red Wed 5 color change to red Tue 7 color change to green Mon 5

date looks more like this - col a is date, col b is turkey, col c deer, etc

I would think this is similar to daily stock prices, if data goes up then it is in green, but if the price goes down then in red. Not based on purchase price (set value), but based on previous days closing price. For this report, I only care about the change day to day.

Is there a way to shade a cell based on whether the adjacent cell is shaded? I found some ways to do this with VBA but I was looking for a non VBA solution if possible. So basically if cell C5 is highlighted yellow I would want cell D5 highlighted yellow too, regardless of the values inside the cell. Is this possible without VBA?

I'm trying to highlight cells a certain color based on the value of the cell 1 column to the left. How would I be able to do this in conditional formatting?

Example) Highlight the cells in "Visit 2" column if it is greater than the "Projected Visit 2" column.

I have a large workbook with 2 rows of data I want to format (R25:R530, M25:M530). Row M is already populated, row R is new data that I am entering. When the value of a cell in row R is larger than its adjacent cell (R25:M25) in row M, I would like the font to turn red. When the value is smaller, I would like the font to turn green.

With the amount of time I've spent attempting to conditionally format, I could have gone through and formatted each cell individually by now!

I have columns of figures with times like 5:52:54 and next to them cells with values that i wish to format based on the time. that is if the time on the adjacent cell is before 8AM then make the value cell have a red border it does not have to be conditional formatting - Excel 2002 in win7/64

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.

I've got a list and I need to check if the adjacent cells for a column are empty or not, and if both are empty then format to a certain color. I have a solution but don't know how to implement it into a format fit for conditional formatting.

I have this in the new rule section of conditional formatting

If conditional formatting would allow it I would simply change I4 to the entire range, I am very much confused as to how to format this cell to work with conditional formatting. (I4 is the first cell in the list)

Something else is that if I change I4 to I5 or something then moves all the highlighted cells around, and to top it off the first few cells which should obviously be highlighted aren't, even though the rest of the cells which should be highlighted are.

Is it possible to change the format of cell AI3 based on the format of cell C3 and D3? I have C3 and D3 set to turn red based on what is in cell C2 and D2. I would like the following done:

If AI3=C3 & C3 is red, format AI3 blue If AI3=D3 & D3 is red, format AI3 blue Otherwise, leave AI3 unformatted.

I have five fields that have a conditional format applied to them: (see attached). Columns J, K, L, N and O. These conditionals highlight if a minimum number is entered. Ex. Minimum pushups for a 30 y/o male is 27, if a 26 is entered it highlights red. The total score (where I need this to perform) is calculated in column Q. It will format red if the total score is below 75 but what I can't figure out is how to make it format if any of the previous minimums have not been met.

Ex. In cell L4, his crunches were 25 (a automatic failure -- red formatting). Now the total score is above 75 so it calculates as passing (green), but I need it to highlight red regardless because of the minimum not met in cell L4.

I’m trying to make my life a bit easier, by adding a few macros and formulas to the spreadsheet (Everything was done completely manually before I got here!!!). What I would like to do is take two columns, which contain a start and end time for work shifts, and colour them GREEN once I have entered a name in the Worker column (Along side the two with the time), and also to fill a cell with a Yes or a No. I’m aware of auto conditioning, and I’ve tried to have a play to get this to work, but I just can’t work it out. I have posted a link to an image which shows what I want. I hope I've explained it well enough!

I want to be able to change the font color of the numbers in a column based on even or odd. I selected the columns and formated them to all be blue... thats the color I want for even, but now I can't figure out how to set a condition that checks for odd numbers and changes them to red. I now have a count of even/odd for all records, and even/odd for the last 30, this provided some very interesting results.

Been racking brain, searching through the forum here, and my Excel 2003 Bible all day trying to figure out this problem to no avail. I would like to clear the contents of any cell in a given range if the cell immediately to the right of is formatted as bold.

I have multiple sheets cataloging multiple vehicles' mileages in multiple areas (one sheet per month). I want to reorganize this data by Vehicle ID rather than month.

I have been reading through trying to find a similar post but the nearest i could find was one dealing with numbers rather than text. This is how the workbook looks. Column A contains a list of numbers based on vehicle types. Column B contains a list of vehicle names.

A B 1 Car, 1 Taxi, 2 Bus, 2 Lorry, 3 Skateboard, 3 Bike, 1 Motorcycle,

What I am looking for is the best way to combine the text from column B depending on the value of column a. the finished results would then end up as: "Car,Taxi,Motorcycle,", or "Bus,Lorry," etc. This is just a simple list.. The one I am working with has around 2500 entries. I have been trying to do this using the CONCATENATE function and IF statement but it's just not working..... My head is ready to explode

Based on a trigger point (being a month), and the number of times the expenditure is spread over (factor), can I formulaize the repetition of the figures?
