# How To Do Conditional Formatting Based On Two Cell Values

Jan 14, 2014
highlighting dates on a premade calendar.

The calendar is made as below:

Tasks

1-1-2014

1-2-2014

1-3-2014

[code]....

The data table is given as below:

Tasks

Date

Task1

1-3-2014

Task2

2-14-2014

I need to highlight the cell in the calendar that matches both the task and the date in the data table. For example- in the situation above, D1 would be highlighted.

I want to do conditional formatting based on two cell values.

i want to do conditional format the column 'R' based on clolumns 'J' and 'R'.

column 'J' is a text column named PRIORITY which can hold the values P1,P2,P3 an P4.

Column 'R' is nothing but difference of two columns 'M' and 'H'(both are time stamps).Column'R' is in below format.

=TEXT(M4-H4,"h:mm:ss").

column M and H are in below format:

eg: 9/11/13 9:41 AM

Now i want to format the column'R' like

if column J ="P2" and column 'R' > "00:10:00"(10 mins) =it should become red.

if column J="P3" and column 'R'>"00:30:00"(30 mins) = it should become red.

I have a range of cells where each row relates to an employee.

In Cells (Columns H:L) I want the range of cells on that row to turn blue if the user puts a "H" in one of the cells.

Also it will need to be adapted for "O" , "Y", "X" - each with different colours.

This needs to be repeated on each row for each person.

scenario: Column H needs to be formatted to green if the text in Column F does not equal "Dog". Dog could be either DOG, Dog or dog. I know how to get it done with only dog, but this one is a bit tricky.

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.

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.

Possible???

I need to highlight a column in a pivot based on the 3 rules below.

Highlight cell in column A if:

Cell in Column A contains numbers 4, 5, 6. or 6.5.

Cell in Column D contains a value

Cell in Column E contains a value

An example of how it should look (Excel 2010): MrExcelhelp1.xlsx

Formula to put in conditional formatting?

I am building a spreadsheet with a column having two drop down menus at the top that designate independent, but strict conditions. For simplicity, say I have in cell A1 a drop down menu with choices "alpha, beta, gamma" while A2 has a drop down menu for "1, 2, 3". These six values sit off to the side in cells X1, X2, X3, X4, X5 and X6 respectively.

In cell A3 I woul like to change its color, perhaps to green because it is an acceptable number (say less than or equal to 100) or change to red if unacceptable, value greater than 100.

I can do both of these commands in Excel, no problem. In my situation, I would like to change the value at which cell A3 goes from green to red dependent on the options in A1 & A2. There are 9 such combinations of alpha, beta, gamma, paired with 1,2,3 and I would like the combinations to change the fill color of cell A3 in the following manner:

If A1 = alpha and A2 = 1, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 100 and red for values greater than 100.

If A1 = beta and A2 = 1, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 80 and red for values greater than 80.

If A1 = gamma and A2 = 1, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 60 and red for values greater than 60.

If A1 = alpha and A2 = 2, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 95 and red for values greater than 95.

If A1 = beta and A2 = 2, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 75 and red for values greater than 75.

If A1 = gamma and A2 = 2, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 55 and red for values greater than 55.

If A1 = alpha and A2 = 3, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 92 and red for values greater than 92.

If A1 = beta and A2 = 3, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 72 and red for values greater than 72.

If A1 = gamma and A2 = 3, then A3 will be green for values less than or equal to 52 and red for values greater than 52.

How to create a cell that can change its conditional formatting based on the selected values of two drop down menus.

I have a few other conditions I would like to implement, say change the fill color of A3 to green, orange or red dependant on the values in A1 & A2, but I might be able to crack that if I can see how the above scenario is done.

I'm creating an excel document that tracks the amount of time someone has (in months) in the program. Certain residents are able to 'fast track' if they meet conditions, and I am trying to create this spreadsheet so that anyone who looks at it can tell who qualifies (and when).

The issue I'm having is with conditional formatting, because I don't know how to do it with mutliple conditions.

Column C is their previous time (months) in the program

Column D is their current time (months) in the program

Column E is their total time in the program (Sum C+D)

Coumn E is what I would like to format, based on the following rules set out in the program manual:

If previous time is 9 months or more, a resident is eligible to fast track after 6 months current time (format green).

If previous time is less than 6 months, a resident is eligible to fast track after 9 months current time (format green).

I understand that their is an odd gap - but these are the rules currently set out by the program manual, which is what I have to follow.

I'm using Excel 2007 - if that changes anything.

I am trying to apply a conditional format to an entire row based on the presence of any value in the first cell of that row to format to a certain color. If there isn't something present in the first cell, I don't want it to change.

Everything I keep trying ends up highlighting the entire workbook.

I would like to apply the rule to the entire sheet but only have it highlight the rows which have a value/text in the first cell of each row.

I am assuming I should use the formulas selection for conditional formatting but I'm unsure of what formula would apply to this type of request.

I'm having issues with Excel's 2010 conditional formatting. Seems easy to use, but I'm trying to highlight values based on 2 columns of numerical data. Example:

Column F:

6

6

14

Column L:

3

NA

17

I would like Column L to highlight values that are greater than Column F in green. If they are less than Column L then highlight them in red.

Seems I was able to do this with Excel 2003, but I don't understand the 2010 version.

In Excel, I want to do conditional formatting on a cell based on the value of another cell. For example: in cell A1, I have text. I want this cell to have a grey background if the value of cell B1 is less than or equal to 1/31/14 and to have no fill (default) if it is greater than that date.

I am working in a table where I would like the whole row to highlight based on the value in one of the cells. These rows of data will be updated regularly, so the formatting has to change with the data.

I want to create a conditional formatting based on a cell in a row. If the value of that cell is greater than or equal to $20 the entire row would be highlighted with a color.

the main thing is that the cells in the rows have if formulas that supple the data for the cells. The cells will be blank if nothing is to be displayed but they will still contain the formula.

I want to format a cell conditional on the value of another cell. I have read numerous threads on the topic and no matter what I do, it doesn't seem to work for me. I've made it a simple as possible by creating a new workbook and entering:

A1: 5

B1: 2

C1: Some random text - this cell has the conditional formula: ="A1>B1"

However, the cell doesn't get formatted. Here is a screenshot and here is the simple workbook.

I want to color format a cell based on a percentage value in another cell but I just can't get my head around how to solve it. I've attached a file that explains it better.

E.g.

The formatting for A1 should be something like:

If A2 is

> +/- 10% RED

+/- 6-10% YELLOW

+/- 5% GREEN

I am attempting to apply conditional formatting such that cell B3 is green if it is greater than or equal to cell B2, and red if less than cell B2. Then to apply this conditioning across the row of data (i.e. C3 >= C2 green, C3 < C2 red; D3 >= D2 green, D3 < D2 red; E3 >= E2 green, E3 < E2 red ... etc.). Needs to be formatted such that if I change the value in cell B2, the colour of B3 is automatically updated.

I am manually formatting column J depending on what data is entered into column K. If the number entered into the cells in column K are equal to or less than what is in column J, I format the data in the cells in column J with the green you see above. If the data entered in the column K cells are greater than column J, I format it in the red shown above.

So, how can I have Excel do this for me, format column J cells depending upon what is entered into column K cells? The caveat here is that I also don't want any formatting to occur until data is entered into column K.

I have a series of columns (L - X) each representing a diagnosed disorder (Dx), coded as binary, with 1=Positive Diagnosis (Success). The reference cell contains diagnostic codes; for each respective Dx column I need a 1 or 0, obviously. Each Dx category has a range of values (Dx codes), so I need to write syntax that reflects this range. For example, =IF(A1=>141,AND(A1=<239.99)),"1","0")

In other words, if cell value is 141 through 239.99 then return 1, else 0

Would it be something like this:

=IF(AND(A1=>141,OR(A1=<239.99)),"1","0")

I have some problem with conditional formatting, basically what I'd like to do is color the cells, based on the value contained in one specific cell. I'm not able to make a formula that suits my job.

Basically I want to color code a cell if the value in a specified cell is between x and y.

I've attached a sample spreasheet: MrExcel.xlsx

I would like to be able to change the color of fill in a cell if there are 3 occurrences in cells. Attached is a sample.

In the attachment, if the cells A2, D2, G2 all have a number "1" in them I would like cell K2 to have a color fill for the cell.

The same would be for the other cells, if B2, E2, H2 all have the number "1", K2 should have a fill in the cell as well, same as if C2, F2, I2 have a number "1", fill K2.

I only want the fill color to be in cell K2 if all 3 of the cells, ex: A2, D2, G2 have a "1" in them. Also, some of the other cells may have a number "1" in them but I would not want them counted unless it is 3 of the consecutive cells.

I have a cell which I want to colour green if C6>9, yellow if O6>60 and red if BOTH C6 and O6 are above their respective numbers. The first two parts of this are obviously straight forward, but I cant work out how to get the third part of it to work.

Is it possible to format a cell based upon the format of another cell? For instance, if the cell to the left of a target cell is bold, is there a conditional formatting cell that can be used so that the target cell is bold as well?

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

Mon 5 4 3 4 2

Fri 5 3 4 2 7

Wed 5 2 7 1 0

Tue 7 4 6 5 9

Mon 5 1 1 5 4

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.

Say I have the following....

I conditional format the top number which in this case is 65, how do I highlight the number directly above it? Either by another conditional format or some formula that picks the number out. I've tried HLOOKUP and VLOOKUP, but its giving me spurious results.

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 have set 3 conditional formatting rules where the row from column A to K will change depending on the value on column L.

Selection is equal to A3:K100, conditions are similar to:

- Formula is =$K3="PIP"

Then for formatting I chose WHITE BOLD FONT & BLUE SOLID PATTERN, for example.

Conditional formatting only allows 3 conditions. If this can be replicated

using VBA, then you can set "n" conditions, correct?
