Live Conditional Formatting - Update Figure And Colour
Apr 27, 2012
I am tracking figures over four weeks with a target of 4 sales per week. I have formatted the cells to light up - Green for 4 sales or more, Amber for 3, Red for 2 or less. I have set a monthly column up at the end of the table and want it to update the figure and colour that each member of my team is currently on. I can get it to change colour for the full 4 weeks worth of figure but want the montly column to be live and not cumulative. For example after 2 weeks if the total sales a member had achieved was 9, I would want the cell to be green. If after 3 weeks they had still only achieved 9 I would want the cell to change to amber once the 3rd weeks '0' figure had been added.
I have designed a live calendar and am trying to highlight selected dates from a column in the calendar. I am able to select single cell in the column and highlight the date in the calendar, But am unable to select multiple dates in the column and highlight multiple dates in the calendar using conditional formatting.
Eg: calender dates are from B5:H9 and multiple dates are in column J10:J13
Im trying to create a stock database based on a colour traffic light system. I have 2 set columns, the first is 'recommended stock' the second is 'actual stock'
When you paste in your requirements into the 3rd column it subtracts it from the acutal stock which tells you how much your recommended stock is short by.
What ive got as well is any stock above 1+ shows up in green (this needs changing - see below), anything below 0 shows up in red. What im struggling with is i want a rule that reads the recommended stock level, then flags it up yellow when the actual stock levels drop to 10% of full stock.
how to use the conditional formatting if that is the way.
On this particular formula but my colleagues have informed me that they require cells with no dates in to have no colour fill. Firstly, I have searched and tried myself with no success on stopping the below formulas from filling empty cells with red, they are as below;
I am trying to colour a whole row of data (in columns A through to AA) based on the numeric entry in column AB. The numeric entry is either 1, 2 or 3. I reckoned I needed to use the IF function, but as writing formula is not my strong point I am struggling to enter the correct data! The first row of data I wish to use is 3. I have tried the following but to no avail: =IF($AB3,1). =IF($AB3=1). =IF($AB3="1").
I am having problems with conditional formatting,on sheet1 ,if column "n" is yes then it is coloured red,when I search database say f124 I would like all records for f124 to appear and keep column "n" red or even better the whole row red,it seems just to locate all records with "n" =no and all orange /brown colour
I need a formula which will, alike conditional formatting, change the colour of a cell based on date or another cell.
For Example, If I was to enter a value of today's date it would be green up to a 3 month period, after 3 months it turns to amber and after 6 months red.
I can do it with conditional formatting on the date function when converted to days (see attached). Is there any way I can make the date updated column automatically match the date difference colour with a formula?
I am trying to setup a monthly calendar. What I want to do is have it so that if you type "apples I want some", the cell changes colour to green, and also the apples doesnt appear in the cell. So when you press enter, all you will see is a green cell that says "I want some"
I was wondering if there was a way in VB within the worksheet to make this happen?
I have a column of cells that changes colour when certain text is entered into them, ie "TIME" will make the fill colour brown. However, when other text is entered into the cell alongside "TIME", the conditional formatting doesn't change the colour of the cell. How do i get around this so it picks up on the "TIME" text even when other text exists alongside it?
I have five columns D3 to H3 all with different amounts/currency value. I'm looking to get a formula or use conditional formatting to scan those five cells and highlight one of them green when Excel has determined which one is the cheapest out of the five.
I have figure A1 column which total amount accounting at cells A31. I need figure 360 as a benchmark calculation perfectly been done. In this calculation 360 well off inside cells A18 although actual number is 363. If we use Conditional Formatting when had enough total in cells the achieve 360, cells colour will be transformed to red. What formula which need I used to change no matter cells on A1 to A30 if sufficient study 360 automatically cells changing colour to red
I have a simple due date spread sheet for tasks that need completing at work. I am able to make the 'Due date' cell turn red when it is equal to or less than todays date, using conditional formatting. No problem.
I also have a 'Date closed' cell which is populated with a date when the task is complete.
What I am struggling to do however is change the red 'Due Date' cell to Grey once the 'Date Closed' cell is populated with a date. In fact I would like the whole row to be greyed out once the 'Date Closed' cell is populated.
I also have an 'Open / Closed' cell, which tells me if a task is open or closed, being chosen from a drop down I installed. Could this be used as an alternative to the 'Date Closed' cell. ie If someone selects 'Closed' in cell A4 the whole A row goes grey.
As far as I can tell Conditional Formatting will not work for this problem.
What I need now is some code to colour the rows in the data sheet ("Standards_Data"), so some other code (which is working fine) can then colour data points on a multiple graphs (which will be on the "Graphs" sheet). I've played around with as much code as I can find but nothing has the flexibility that I need or doesn't seem to work at all.
The idea is that users can adjust the colours using the Column A on the "Graphs" sheet to best highlight certain things. Also this list could then be edited as old Standard ID's become redundant and new ones come on line.
So in a nutshell: Colour rows in "Standard_Data" based on value of Standard ID (Column 4) according to the corresponding colour found in the list in the "Graphs" sheet.
I've attached a trimmed down version of the workbook.
How to colour cells depending on text in other cells, for example,
I would like cells D26:AA26 to turn light red if the letters 'FSM' are in cell 'E26' even if other text appears in it, eg 'SA+/FSM' I have been playing about with conditional formatting but can seem to solve the mixed text issue?
I have a file with a column with conditional formatting that works. I save the file and when I open it again some of the cells in that column do not respond to the conditional formatting. I have 5 "sheets" in the file with the same conditional formatting and none of them work properly.
I am using "Use a Formula to determine which cells to format" and I have the below formula.
=OR(EXACT(E3,$V$5:$V$18)) It applies to cells =$E$3:$E$79
The only way I can get it to update after opening the file is to "Edit" the rule then just hit OK twice.
On one of our computers at work, Excel is acting especially strange. The conditional formatting in Excel on one of our computers is not working. In addition, we cannot fill a cell with any color or change the color of the writing. We can click a color for the letters and type it in, but immediately after another cell is highlighted, the writing goes black again. When we try to highlight multiple cells with the cursor, the cells are black instead of the normal color. This happens to not just spreadsheets that are new, but existing spreadsheets on our shared drive from only this one computer as well. No other computers are affected this way. All other computers show the spreadsheets fine and do not have any functionality issues.
I am running office 2007. I am using conditional formatting in a pivot table to highlight rows where the value in the last column meets a particular criterion. However everytime I update the table the formatting gets lost. I have looked through all the threads I can find to establish if there is some VBA code that I can use to reapply the required conditional formatting after each update
