# Index Matching Numbers To Conditionally Format Cells Value Change?

Jul 29, 2014

I have the same report, one a monday snapshot, the other a daily comparison. I would like to index columns B, in both reports, to find the same part number and then reference the horizontal row and highlight increases in columns G thru AD. The comparison report looks identical but the column B numbers may not be in the same location. this is a report to show prosduction requirements and the increases throughout the week.

## Conditionally Change Number Format Based On Another Cell's Value

Dec 1, 2009

Format the number in Column AL to '[hh]:mm' when Column C's value is ="P/T", otherwise format to 'General'

Column C's value is referenced from another sheet in the same workbook via a VLOOKUP function.

Column AL's value is based on an IF formula which goes like this:
=IF(\$C4="F/T",SUM(\$AJ4)+(\$AK4/2),SUM(\$D4:\$AH4))

Basically the above formula asks if Column C's value is F/T then count (because if F/T then the corresponding values in that row are whole numbers). If not, then SUM (because if P/T the corresponding values in that row are set to [hh]:mm format).

I have another sheet in the same workbook which has code (quoted below) which does something similar but I don't understand it enough to get it doing what I want for the sheet in question.

## Using COUNTIF To Conditionally Format Cells

Jun 4, 2014

I am attempting to create a staffing calendar that will use conditional formatting to alert the coordinator by highlighting the cell when certain thresholds are reached.

The spreadsheet has three tabs, with 'Master' being the final copy.

In the 'Magic' tab, I was able to get it work with a rolling count but I am having trouble recreating it when the count is stationary and not updating itself line by line aside the person's name.

What I'm preferably looking to have happen is for the 'Name' to light up when it appears more than 3 times in a week in the Day fields, more than 1 time a week in the O/C field and more than 7 times a month in the Night field.

## Conditionally Format Range Of Cells From VBA?

Apr 28, 2012

Is there a way to conditionally format a range of cells from VBA?

I want the cells to turn red yellow or green when i type into that cell r, y, or g.

I can easily select the range of cells, but dont know how to format them.

## Conditionally Format Cells To Blank With VBA

Jun 14, 2014

I have a problem where I need to answers from a look up table to return an empty cell if the vlookup table returns a 0 or #N/A. This has to be the case as the answers are used in the creation of a csv file.

It would be easier for me to put in conditional formatting rather rewriting 40+ formulas and copying them down 1000 rows.

Is there a method in vba to format cells to blank?

## Conditionally Format For Sequence Across Multiple Cells?

Mar 14, 2013

What I am attempting to do is have my spreadsheet automatically detect and highlight personnel working seven days in a row. There are 63 total columns, the first one being for the person's name. The next 31 columns are a full month's dates in which their day shifts are recorded, while the final 31 are the full month's dates for night shifts worked. Days worked are listed as a "1" in the cell beneath the respective shift's date, while days off go down as "3". Currently I am using conditional formatting with the following formula, which highlights cells in red:

I created the conditional formatting formula to apply to the row for the first person listed, and then copied and pasted the formatting only for the rest of the personnel rows. The issue I'm having is that while it will highlight the seventh work days, it will often highlights all cells prior to the grouping which has seven straight days of work. It also tends to highlight single or multiple cells in red which do not fit the pattern, and whose rows may not even have seven straight days of work.

## How To Compare Cells And Format Conditionally Over Whole Sheet

May 30, 2014

I wish to compare two sheets [Sheet1 and Sheet2] within one workbook and format the second sheet conditionally, based on an exact match to the first sheet.

Cell by cell, I can add the specific conditional formatting rule to each cell but this is tedious and its hard to see where I have applied the conditional format and where not.

So I tried to construct a macro to apply to a range of cells.

I tried to assign the logical result of the compare test to a cell outside of the range[lets say on Sheet2, A1] , and then format the range cells based on that logical value. I think my error is in conditional format criterion but I am a bit stuck.

## Macro To Conditionally Format Referenced Cells In Another Sheet

Apr 27, 2013

A
B
C
D

[Code]....

There are four sheets (labeled A,B,C)

Depending on the contents in cells in Columns A and B (which have 1000+ rows), I want to change the background color of a referenced cell elsewhere:

For each row (lets say from 2-1000)

1. If "A" cell is blank -- referenced cell (address in columns C & D) should be colorless -- (as in Row 2 --- cell Z5 in Sheet "C" should be colorless)

2. If "A" cell has text AND "B" cell is blank, reference cell should be colored BLUE -- (as in Row 3 --- Cell F3 in Sheet "C" should be BLUE)

3. If both "A" and "B" cells have text, reference cell should be colored YELLOW -- (as in Row 4 --- Cell C5 in Sheet "B" should be YELLOW)

While I could do this with a conditional format in every referenced cell, it would take too long to enter them.

## Change Sheet Index Numbers In VBA?

Oct 23, 2009

1Does Excel process worksheets (tabs) in the left-to-right order in which the tabs appear visually? Or in the order of the worksheets' index numbers as they appear in the VBE Project Explorer window? 2Is there a way to renumber or reassign index numbers to specific worksheets?

## Possible To Change The Index Numbers Within A Collection

Feb 1, 2010

I have created a userform that upon clicking a commandbutton adds a line of 4 textboxes. Everytime the user clicks the commandbutton a new line of textboxes is created. The 4 textboxes in each line are described by a class (hope I am using the terminology correctly). And each instance is saved in a collection. The problem is that I am giving the user the ability to insert a new row in between two existing rows.

When this happens, I need all of the index numbers to re-order so that they are consecutive from the top of the form to the bottom. Example: The user enters 6 rows of data and then realizes that they missed an item that needs to be inserted between rows 3 and 4. Currently the rows are indexed 1 to 6 with 1 being the row at the very top of the form and 6 being the row at the very bottom of the form. If I insert a row in between 3 and 4 I will end up with the index numbers going from top of the form to bottom (1,2,3,7,4,5,6). Is it possible to reorder the index numbers so that the inserted rows index number will be 4 and each row after that will go up by one?

## Change The Format Of Numbers & Round

Aug 23, 2006

I have to change the layout of my numbers. At the moment the number have 3 decimal places but rounded to two decimal places and are separated with a dot (value in excel is 272.664 but shown just 272.66). After the macro or excel formula the output should be 000000000027266. So the last decimal places should be deleted (but the amount has still to be rounded!!!), the amount should be without a dot and the number has to be always 15 characters long (like in the example the above just with ceros before the number) I tried it in Format Cells but I couldn’t find anything. If I use the find and replace function to delete the dot, the third decimal place will be shown. Does anyone know if I can format it in excel or using a VBA code to change the number?

## Detect Numbers In A Cell Range And Then Change Cells Based On What Numbers Are Found?

Feb 27, 2014

I'm going to be using a spreadsheet to keep track of where different people are at. So if Person 1 is in Room 3, I will stick a 3 in the box next to their name and then can look at the spreadsheet whenever I need and see what room they are in. When I'm deciding what room to put a person in, though, I need to be able to quickly glance at a list of Room #'s and see what one's are still available. So I have a bank of Room #'s in the spreadsheet....1,2,3, etc.

What I'd like, is some way to set this up so that when I put, for example, "3" in the cell next to "Person 1" the spreadsheet automatically removes "3" from the bank of available Room #'s and when I delete the "3" because the person has left, it adds "3" back to the bank of available Rooms.

## From Matching Numbers In One Column Return Value Of Second Cells In Another Cell?

May 19, 2014

I have a table with 4 columns where in column 3 I have part numbers and in column 4 I have the number sold. In column 3, the part sold can be listed several times with a different number sold in the column 3. What I need is code to go through the part numbers and return a total number sold for that part in a new column. I have sorted the table by part number, then by Column 1 which is for the date. The new total should go in the last column with the oldest date for that part.

## Format Cells To Change Name Format

Is it possible to change the contents of a cell (A1) displaying a name as:

John Smith

to Smith, John (in cell B1)

## Conditionally Format IF, ISNUMBER, MATCH

Jan 14, 2009

the attached document. I wish to try and conditionally format Sheet1!D:D depending on if Sheet2!E:E displays a particular letter, when; Matching Sheet1!A:A to Sheet2!A:A Matching Sheet1!B:B if <11 to Sheet2!B:B where cell equals text "Small (7-10)" if Sheet1!B:B is >10 then where Sheet2!B:B equals text "Mid - Large (11-16)"
Matching Sheet1!C:C if cell contains "Hcap" to Sheet2!C:C where cell equals "Handicaps". If Sheet1!C:C doesnt contain "Hcap" match to Sheet2!C:C where cell equals "All Races".

To use an example, if E:E in the cell adjacent to all the matches above equals N then the cell in Sheet1!D:D turns red. Cell D52 would become red. D88, D91, D92, D93 and D96 would also become red. Here was my attempt at the formula, no idea if I was close to the answer.

## Conditionally Format Dynamic Range?

Jul 18, 2014

I'm looking for a way to apply conditional formatting to a dynamic range, as the number of rows will vary each week.

Col A could be used as a reference, as it will always have a number in it, but wherever it stops is where I would need the conditionally formatted range to cut-off as well.

The actual range that would need formatting applied to it is Columns F-I where:

For any values < 1.00 (it should also cover blanks, which should be treated as zeros), red highlighting is applied & For any text that reads "Flagged" or "Not Reported", they would need to become bold

Additionally, I would like to start the formatting on Row 2 of the sheet in question, named "1010version"

## Conditionally Format A Cell That Already Contains A Formula?

Nov 14, 2009

I wish to compare 2 sets of data in 2 cells and in the third cell i wish to both display the difference and format in a colour depending on the outcome of the difference. Is this possible? or is there another solution?

e.g cell A1 is 21
cell B1 is 26
cell C1 is the difference and if the difference is greater than say 2 then it would colour red if equal to 1 then yellow and if less than 1 as in 0 -1 etc it would colour green. I have been very successfully using conditional formatting to colour a cell that has the data inputted but cant now do it for the formula cell. The context is pupil progress but that i guess is irrelevant really.

## Conditional Format Cells Containing Numbers And Letters - Ignore Cells With Number Only

Jul 11, 2014

I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.

## Conditionally Format From Highest To Lowest With Tie Break?

Apr 22, 2013

I need to do conditional formatting based on the highest percentage (value) in each row.

[1st highest value (green coloring), 2nd highest (Orange color), 3rd highest (blue coloring), if it has the letters "NT" then (Red color)]

But to break the tie, if the value of the 1st column is equal to the value of the 2nd column, 1st will be considered as the highest value. If the value of the 2nd column is equal to the value of the 3rd column will be considered 2nd largest value.

## Conditionally Format Currency Based On Another Cell?

Feb 28, 2014

What I am trying to do is create a multi-currency expense report. For example, cell B1 has a drop down list of three different currencies. Based on the currency selected in B1, I want C1 to reflect that number formatting using the proper currency.

Im sure there is an easy way to do this but I have tried using an if statement in the conditional formatting section but it does not work.

how to total the different currencies using the ifsum formula, so this is more of a presentation task, but still it has annoyed me to no end.

In the example workbook, the currency value selected in row E should effect the currency formatting in Rows F-L

## Conditionally Format Column B If It Finds A Match In A

Jan 30, 2012

What is wrong with this formula? I have used it before just fine, but sometimes including now it won't work.

PRODUCT_IMAGE Images 244-447439 244-455507 244-455507 244-455508 244-455508 244-455509 244-455509 244-455512
=MATCH(B2,\$A\$2:\$A\$412,0)

We can clearly see that we have a match in rows 2 and 1 columns A and B, but I am getting #NA. I have sorted the columns A-Z as well. I have also tried formatting the columns different ways and I still get #NA.

I need to conditionally format column B if it finds a match in A.

## Conditionally Format Axis Labels On Graphs

Apr 2, 2013

I am putting together a graph and my manager wants the companies with a zero value in the bar chart to stand out (0 = really good). The only thing I could think of was making the individual x-axis label's font turn green if value was zero. Is there any way to accomplish this? (Additional: This chart will be updated every month with new data so I do not want to change by hand every month).

## Conditionally Format First Cell Based On Values In The Row

Apr 29, 2009

i've been trying for teh last two days to figuire out a way to conditionally format the first cell in a row to turn a certain color based on the values of several independant cells in that row, as opposed to monitoring the whole row. I have tried numerous IF, AND, OR, formulas to no avail. The cell obviously also needs to ignore blank cells...Can this be done?

Basically I want the first cell to turn yellow if dates in certain cells are within 90 days of today, and turn red if within 30 days of today.......

## Conditionally Format Entire Table If Values Changed?

Feb 22, 2012

I have two data tables (12 columns each, 60 rows each) in the same worksheet. Ideally, I'd like to conditionally format the 1st table to show if any values changed from the 2nd table.

I see that I can conditionally format each cell to compare to its respective cell in the 2nd table, but would rather not do this 720 times.

## Conditionally Convert Text To Numbers In VB

Jan 18, 2012

I am attempting to automate a daily extract for account transactions. This extract ranges from 100 - 15000 lines on any given day. Below is an example of my data:

Account Action to be taken
8523 Needs to be converted to a number
84A2 No action needed
8523 Needs to be converted to a number
0749 Needs to remain as text stored as a number
2GP1 No action needed
8181 Needs to be converted to a number
0489 Needs to remain as text stored as a number

[code]...

As you can see, I have three types of data:

1) accounts with leading zeros which need to be stored as text

2) accounts with mixed formats which can remain as text

3) accounts that are purely numerical without leading zeros. I need to convert these from text to numbers.

Since the extract can be up to 15000 lines long, going through the data to manually convert the appropriate cells from text to numbers is unreasonable, especially when this has to be done daily.

Is it possible to script this task? I've tried a number of things, but unfortunately my knowledge of VB isn't very extensive. This is the best that I've come up with:

Code:
LastRow = Range("a" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = LastRow To 1 Step -1
If Cells(i, "a").Value "0*" Then
Cells(i, "a").Format.General
End If
Next

But I'm failing on the line highlighted in red.

## Pre Format Cells With Numbers

Nov 2, 2006

In the publishing industry we have what we call ISBN numbers you will see that every book has a unique number. For thee company that I work for the number always starts as follows -

978-0-7153-

This is followed by five numbers sometimes 4 with a letter i.e.

978-0-7153-12345
978-0-7153-1234X

Is it possible to pre format the cells in a column so that the 978-0-7153- part of the code would be there hiding in the background and all you have to do is type the 12345 to get 978-0-7153-12345 displayed?

## Conditionally Format Entire Row Based On Adjacent Cell Values

May 24, 2013

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!

## Conditionally Format Rows Based Duplicates Only Found In First Column?

Dec 6, 2013

I'm trying to conditionally format rows of data based on duplicates in the first column, then filter the results. I have a table of data with mutiple variables assigned to different "headings" that looks a little something like this:

A
B
C
D

[Code]....

[selects the table, then GoTo Special selects the blanks, fills in the blanks with the cell above, then Copy and Pastes As Values the entire table again to fill everything in]

Iâ€™m stuck on how to input a formula into the conditional formatting window that will:
Format the text to white in columns A, B, and E based on there being a duplicate above that row in Column A only. i.e. conditionally format the values with a * below:

A
B
C
D
E

[Code]....

If I use the conditional formula I found: =A1=A2, then cell E3 gets made white text when I donâ€™t want it to, hence the â€śreferencing column Aâ€ť part of the question (Column A is always a unique ID number whereas Column E can have a duplicate in the row above). [Edit: Why can't I type Enter or put a line break here... I'll try re-edit at home...] When I go to filter on Column C for YYY again, the conditional formatting needs to realise to un-white the text, which is my next headache because it means conditional formatting that acts relative to hidden rows as a result of a filter... Oh and did I mention the client wants this done in 2003? This is an afterthought though â€“ as I can force them to use 2010 if need be
