Macro Button To Change Background Color Of Specific Cell

Sep 17, 2008

My boss wants a spreadsheet that has multiple buttons on it that will change the background color of a specific cell to four different colors. Example:

Text written in Cell B3, Button in Cell A3 that will change the Background color of Cell B3 to either Green, Yellow, Red or Blue.

There will be a lot of buttons on this worksheet following the same format as above. I don't want to change the value of what is in the cell, just the background color.

Macro To Change Background Color And Text Of Certain Cells On Mouseclick

Mar 15, 2013

creating a macro. I would like the background color of certain cells under column A (cells 12:25, 27:32, 34:38, 40:45, 47:51, 53:61, 63:70, 72:79, 81:88, 90:92) to change to the color green and display the text "Complete" on mouseclick.

Before the cell is clicked, it would be the color red, with no text. (I'm not sure if you need to know that).

Next, I would need a macro that resets everything back to red. I hope this macro could be assigned to a form button.

Change Background Color Of Cell When Data Has Been Changed?

Jul 10, 2012

I have 10 excel sheets that are filled with data some 20,000 each.

Some of the descriptions in that row need to be changed.

I wonder how I can create some kind of macro or formatting that will change the text color or the fill color as I make those changes automatically?

I can sort the list after that easy enough, pulling the color text or the fill color.

Modify Code To Change Cell Background Color

Nov 11, 2008

I have the code below set to change the background color based on certain conditions. What I need to do is change it so that if none of the conditions are met, it does not change the color at all. As it is written now, if anything is entered in a cell that has a background already set, but does not meet these conditions, the cell turns white.

Change Cell Background Color Based On Multiple Conditions

Aug 6, 2008

My Excel skills are basic at best, with no knowledge of VBA other than finding the VB Editor. What I'm trying to do: Attached is the file I'm working with, to give you a better idea. When a name is selected in column B, the cells in the non corresponding columns E to N should have a black background color. For example, when you select Mike in column B, the cells in that row in columns I to N, named Dave and Dean, should become black. If you select the name Dave, columns E to H (Mike) and M to N (Dean) should become black. In addition, the background color of the non-black cells should change depending on the status.

OK : green
FAIL: red
N/A: orange
Exceptions: blue

The attached file shows a few possible results, manually entered.

VBA Macro To Delete Entire Column When Background Cell Color Is Red

May 17, 2013

with performing the following tasks with VBA:

1). For each cell that in the range that has a Red background delete the entire column
I have attached a sample spreadsheet where I have tried to do this. It's not quite working. It does not seem to work when there are RED cells next to each other.

I know that I can do a simple thing like column("A:A"), but I'd rather have it in a loop as in the sample code, in case the columns change in the future.

2). The second task is to delete the rows in the spreadsheet where the first cell in the row is a blank.

Change Row Background Color Using VBA

Try to find a way to automatically change the color of a row, based in changing the name in column A.

I tried conditional formatting but the name (or dates) in column A are not the same (always other and other).

I failed to adapt any VBA CODE (found in GOOGLE) because column A varies a lot.

Change Background Color Of Every Second Row?

Jul 30, 2014

I have a given som (general) range where I would like a function to change the background color of every second row in a visual basic function.

One could of course just loop through it and use the mod function, but I think there has to be something quicker.

I know about conditional formatting, but it is something I need to use over and over again on Ranges that will differ in size so I would like it to be a function I can just run as part of a sub.

Change Matched Cells Background Color

Mar 7, 2014

Macro is not working .So the macro I am using is supposed to look back at all the months tab, match the Name from previous tabs and if they match change background color of the active sheet's cell to red.

Right now the macro is only able to lookup the name in the previous tab (i.e. For December it will only lookup November tab and not October-January).

e.g. (Candidate name is Jack King and he is in (october's tab, Column A Cell 2 )

I want this candidate name to turn red once I type his name in November/December tab.

Change Cell Color By Option Button

Nov 22, 2006

I have a series of 12 option buttons on my spreadsheet named Opt_1 thro' opt_12. Whenever one is pressed, I want to invoke code to action the following:

change forecolor of non-selected option buttons to yellow
change forecolor of the selected option button to red
Enter in Cell A1 the number of the option button slected

So, for example, if Opt_4 was pressed, then

Opt_1 - Opt_3 & Opt_5 - Opt_12 forecolor = yellow
Opt_4 forecolor = red
Cell A1 gets the value of 4 entered into it.

I know how to do this on a user form, by putting the option buttons in a frame and then picking up the array value of the option button, but I have these directly on my spreadsheet next to 12 cells as this is more relevant to my application.

I thought of a Select - Case statement, but this will be rather lengthy. Have you any suggestions on how to tighten this code down.

Background Color And Border Around Macro

Aug 6, 2008

I am trying to develop an Excel spread- sheet by using some macros. In detail, in my first worksheet, I have something like -

Exp1 ....
Exp2 ....
Exp3 ....
:

Expn ....

This rows are coming from another worksheet and I have used a macro (developed by me) to populate these rows. Even the number of rows to be populated is not fixed.
However, I would like to add one row with text - " Total Expense" after those rows. This row will have some background color - say Tan - and font color - say Green - and also a border around its own - in nature, the border will be thick, Double and with color Rose. I have tried the following code in macro but not working properly -

Sub Include_Fields_n_Format(loc As String)
tot_exp_scell = loc & f_scell
tot_exp_ecell = loc & (f_scell + 1)
Range(tot_exp_scell, tot_exp_ecell). Merge
Range(tot_exp_scell, tot_exp_ecell).WrapText = True

Range(tot_exp_scell, tot_exp_ecell).Interior.Color = RGB(150, 150, 150)
With Range(tot_exp_scell, tot_exp_ecell).Font...................

Keyword Search - Macros To Change Font Color For Specific Keywords (not Entire Cell)

May 5, 2014

I need to conduct keyword searches in excel and color the keywords a different color without changing the font color of the entire cell. now, i found some code from another thread that does this, but i cant seem to get it to work with more than 2 keywords. i need fine-tuning the provided code to do what i need it to do.

[URL]

the VBA code i used was this:

[Code].....

I was playing around with the example, the Cat_Mouse.xlsm, and when i modified the 'myList' and 'myColor' arrays, it does not work.

Cat_Mouse.xlsm

For example, I modified the code to add the word bat:

[Code] .....

When i run the macros, the word "Bat" does not become colored red. interestingly enough, when i substitute the word "bat" for the word "hat" in the "myLIST array, the word "hat" does change to the red font.

I am looking to use this code to address keywords in my excel file by coloring all key words red and i have more than 10 key words.

Return Background Color Of Cell

Oct 6, 2006

On one worksheet I have a list of colours in cells. I want to be able to look in the list the list and return the background colour of that cell. The function i am using is:

=CELLCOLORINDEX('1.1'!$C28,FALSE)

'1.1' is the worksheet name, $C28 is the cell (coloured blue)

It seems to work because I am getting the correct background colour in the new worksheet, however it also returns the number(37) as well.

I just want the background colour to be shown only, not the color's number as well.

Function CellColorIndex(InRange As Range, Optional _
OfText As Boolean = False) As Integer
'
' This function returns the ColorIndex value of a the Interior
' (background) of a cell, or, if OfText is true, of the Font in the cell.
'
Application.Volatile True
If OfText = True Then
CellColorIndex = InRange(1, 1).Font.ColorIndex
Else
CellColorIndex = InRange(1, 1).Interior.ColorIndex
End If
End Function

Click Button That Changes Cell Background Colour

Jan 12, 2007

The problem is that the cells which need to change are locked and have a object group ontop of them and are not all in one row or column..

The cells which need to change are A4,A5,A6,B6,C6,D6,E6,F6,G6,H2,H3,H4,H5,H6,I6,J6,K2,K3,K4,K5,K6.

It sort of a theme changer for my spreadsheet incase people want a change and can do all of it with one click of a button or maybe click on a cell with the colour on it and have that colour copy itself to the range.
