IF Statement Using Formatting Criteria (NOT Conditional Formatting)
May 5, 2009
Is there "code" for different formatting in a spreadsheet so you can use an IF statement to do something like:
etc.?? But replace "blue background" and "red text" with some sort of number code? I want to compile a list of the items that are formatted with certain background colors and/or text colors and then organize only those items into a chart.
I wish to use a formula to highlight a date based on two criteria in two separate columns;
The first is the Date that will be in Column B.
I want it to highlight the date if : Today() is greater than that date in the cell plus 5 years (or 1824 days)
The second criteria I want is for the date to be only highlighted if the corresponding cell (in column A) does NOT contain the term ("Basic")
I have the formula:
which highlights the date correctly IF the term in Column A is "Basic" : But I cannot figure out how to insert the NOT statement to make the formula flip around so it only highlights those dates older than the 5 years requirement and NOT contain the "Basic" in column A.
I have several rows with data in and what I would like would be to total the amount of time "CU" is displayed and if that number is less than say 10 the formatting is applied. I need if possible to be able to do this via the one condition.
Can you do a IF statement in Conditional Formatting? I need a column to highlight Red if there is a blank in it based on the current time COMPARED to the stated time in another column (on a separate tab)
So if current time is 1:30 PM and the stated (appointment) time on the other sheet is 1:15 PM, and my control field is still blank, I need it to turn Red.
Set MyRange = Range("A1:AZ9615") ' Range to apply format to
For Each Item In MyRange Select Case Item.Value Case "1780", "1800", "1810", "2050", "6170" Item.Font.ColorIndex = 3 'x = 3 Case Else x = xlNone End Select Item.Rows.Interior.ColorIndex = x
I want it to search that range and turn those Numbers in Quotes to Red, which it works fine, but Somtimes those numbers are Imbedded in a string excample "1810-1-DAV". So my Question is When It turns my normal numbers red, how can I get it to turn the STRING RED ALSO?
I am trying to eliminate the use of formulas for conditional formatting in my code. I heard that the CASE statement might work for this. Below is the code I have but the case does not like the second case statement.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim icolor As Integer
If Not Intersect(Target, Range(("S2:V" & TTRows), ("W2:W" & TTRows))) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Target
Case Is >= 0.8 icolor = 3 Case is >= 0.7 and not >= 0.8 icolor = 6 Case Else icolor = 0 End Select
Conditional formatting. I have been tasked with creating a simple game for a group training project.
The game consists of users filling in the answers to questions (simple one word text answers). My boss wants to have a master sheet with the correct answers, and a subsequent sheet that will then compare the employee's answer to the master sheet. If the employee's answer is correct, then the output sheet simply displays the correct answer, however, if the employee's answer is wrong, he would like the output to display the correct answer and highlight the cell.
Is there a way to have the output sheet highlight a cell only when the answer on the employee sheet is different from the master sheet? I was thinking along the lines of using an if statement to see if the values of the employee sheet differ from the master sheet, but I do not know how I would then use that result to highlight the cells in the output sheet.
I have several worksheets in a workbook that has dates of completion of various training topics. Some of these topics require annual (12 months), bi-annual (24 month), 6-month, or even 2-month re-training.
What I am trying to accomplish is to automatically shade all cells for dates that fall within one month of these periodicities based on the computer's clock when a workbook is opened. Unfortunately different columns have different periodicities so what I was planning on doing was putting that monthly number in a cell ("12" in A1000, for example for all Column A values). When the file is opened, if any of the dates in column A are more than 11 months from today's date (A1000 minus 1), they are within one month of needing to be re-trained and I want the cell shading to be a light yellow.
Cell BM22 is a percentage calculation of the differences between two different days of volume for this stock and that formula is: =(BH22/BH25)-1 Cell BM22 currently is calculating the result to be -65.65%
When I set up a CLASSIC Conditional Formatting using a formula (="If($BJ$20=""SELL""") to check the if the text in cells BK10 match the text displayed in cell BJ20 - I get no error messages and no formatting?
I am using Mac Office Excel 2011. I feel like I have tried everything including changing the Number selection type of the cells to TEXT. Nothing seems to works.
I'm desperately trying to work out conditional formatting for different dates.
I have =TODAY() in F3
In the remainder of column F (from F19 to F625) I have either blank cells or varying dates (dating back to 2011 and dates going forward into 2014).
I need to Red/Amber/Green the following:
Green = any dates which are 45 days or more in the future from today's date Amber = any dates which are between +1 and +45 days in the future from today's date Red = any dates which are today's date or a date in the past
I can get one or two of the criteria working i.e. Green and Red, but not the Amber. Is one overriding or ignoring another?
how to create VBA code for conditionally formatting a column of dates that have expired. My unique challenge is that I first need to associate the item attached to the date with the expiration date of a particular group. Therefore, I have to first match the Item label with the appropriate group, and then I need to evaluate the expiration dates of both the Group and the Item. If the Item expires before the Group expires, then I need the Item date to be formatted in bold and with a red font.
Attached is a sample spreadsheet.
Thoughts about how to accomplish this with VBA? By the way, VBA is the necessary approach due to the fact that the data is updated several times per day, and all existing data is erased prior to uploading new data.
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?
I am trying to figure out how to set up a spreadsheet, that comprises a list of open-entries, wherein the user will insert their information and a % out of 100 assigned to them; the entire form, in the end, cannot go beyond 100%, so each entry has to be done correctly...
BASICALLY my problem is that I am trying to set up the " Total %" cell, which is already assigned the formula "=SUM(D5:D16)" (D5 through D16 being the cells in which %'s are assigned) so that it will auto-populate with the appropriate color/error if the %'s are either insufficient (short of 100%) or exceeding (above 100%). What I had been trying to set up (and have successfully set up in other spreadsheets, however under slightly different circumstances) is a Conditional Format in which the first (with the color Red for "exceeding") was " =If(SUM(D5:D16)>100,SUM(D5:D16),SUM(D5:D16))
" So regardless of exceeding, exactly met, or insufficient totals, it would post the total entered, BUT assigning the color red, so that IF it did, in fact, total higher than 100, it would appear red. A similar formula would be applied to Green (reflecting "on target") in which the formula would be " =If(SUM(D5:D16)=100,SUM(D5:D16),SUM(D5:D16))"
Now the problem is: this is not working for the SUM of the cells. In my previous experience with Conditional Formatting and color assigning results, it had been with the AVERAGE of two columns of cells.(worked without a hitch.)
I have a worksheet titled "detail" containing 3 cells which automatically and independently change colour subject to their proximity to various dates. On a new worksheet titled "overview" in the same workbook I would like to have one cell which changes colour if any of the 3 cells in the other worksheet are triggered.
I have a conditional format that does not seem to be working for me. Cell B2 has a drop down optionSelect, No, Yes); Cell B3 is supposed to be conditionally formatted to return the following results if the criteria is met:
If B2 is equal to No or Yes then colour should become Yellow If B3 is >0 then colour should become Blue
The problem is when B3 is greater than 0 it does not change the cell colour to Blue.
B3 Conditional Format #1 is =AND(ISTEXT(B2),B2<>"Select") turn background to yellow B3 Conditional Format #2 is =AND(ISNUMBER(B3),B3<>0) turn background to blue
See attached for spreadsheet with conditional formats
I am drawing a blank. I want to use conditional formatting in cell b2 that will outline the cell(I know how to do that) based on a formula. The formula I need would determine if cell a2 is 26,27, or 28. Or function just returns true/false. I would rather not use 2 formulas.
how to adapt the solution so it would work in multiple cells. Since I was told to start a new thread, here it is. I want to format a cell based on its contents, If it has one of three entries, it should be greyed. I then want to use the conditional format across the whole page, but the solution given in the other thread refers to a single cell, how can I do this without that reference?
formatiing a cell, e.g. change color to RED, in the event the value is a duplicate. To make it clear, I need to show that if the Serial Number of a product just entered is a duplicate and should change color when a combination of conditions is true. i.e. if a "part number" AND the currently entered "serial number" already exist, the entered serial numbers should change color.
I would like to have excel check if eight of ten of cells in a row are above a certain criteria, then if they are format the tenth cell to be red...so excel checks the ten cells above and if eight of them are above a certain number then that cell shades red.
The code segment from "Get Around Excels 3 Criteria Limit in Conditional Formatting" works perfectly if I type the variable directly into the cell, but not in a range of cells. That is to say, if I copy the source cell to a range of cells I receive a "Run-time error 13: Type mismatch" error". Is there a way to get around this? This is the code segment I've tried in the worksheet.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer If Not Intersect(Target, Range("b2:q53")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case "IBBCH", "ibbch" icolor = 36 'light yellow Case "OBBCH", "obbch" icolor = 34 'light turqoise Case "OBBRDG", "obbrdg" icolor = 35 'light green Case "LNCH", "lnch".........................
Column b in sample is conditionally formatted based on it's values. I want to also apply that same formatting to the person's name in the chart in D2:I9. For example, Jeff is in bottom 50% so cell B2 is shaded red with red text. I would like to apply that same red shade and red text to all the cells in my chart that say Jeff. Also, as example, all of the cells in my chart that say Kelsey would be formatted with green shade/green text and so on...
I'm trying to set up conditional formatting in a spreadsheet where there are 3 possible correct letters that can be entered into a range of cells and if one of these letters is not entered then I would like the cell to be highlighted.
To be more precise, it's an accommodation spreadsheet and in each cell if someone needs a room for that particular night (each night is represented by a separate column) then a letter is used to indicate what type of room they require i.e. "k" is a king room, "s" is a Suite and "t" is a twin. I don't want to force people to have to select from a list which would be the obvious solution to this as it is simply too cumbersome for the amount of data entry we do.
However i want to ensure that if someone accidentally enters anything other than t,k or s then the cell is highlighted. We work in large spreadsheets covering months of dates so to manually have to find any errors is hugely time consuming.
I am trying to do a conditional formatting based on the result in one cell but it needs to add up multiple cells first to determine which conditional format it needs to use. I am not sure whether I need to do a formula conditional format or whether to use cell is greater than with =sum() in it. I have tried both but neither seem to be working correctly. I have attached an example of the spreadsheet and the conditions I am trying. I am using 2010 version.
Basically, the closing amount for Monday in prod 1 (cell c4), needs to display in red if sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4) & Fri (R4) is greater than that value or display in amber if the sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4).
I need to complete the same for the whole column for Monday (col C) for each appropriate product. Then the same for column B but this will sum different cells but the principal will be the same.
