Macro To Generate Message Box Based On Colour Of Cells On A Sheet
Mar 29, 2007
I have built conditional formatting into some cells on ' Sheet 1' and would like a message box (saying "Check errors before closing") to appear when the user tries to close the workbook if any of these cells are coloured red (ColourIndex 3).
I have a workbook that has 30 tabs in it. Each tab is a report card for students. What I'd like to do is create another tab with a button on it that when I hit the button it will search through each tabs range of D12:D40, D48:D76, D84:D112, D120:D136, J12:J40, J48:J76, J84:J112, and J120:J136. And if any of these cells has an MS in them then this new sheet I have created will list each students name which is in cell E5 and list what they recieved the MS for. This will be in the same row number but in column B. So if cell D12 has an MS in it then this report will list the students name and what's in cell B12.
I am trying to generate a number based on the Month, Year and then three digits. For Example: 1107-001. I would need it to refer to another sheet for the previous used last three digits. Each month it would start over at 001. On the Reference sheet it would always be in the first column.
I currently have a large spreadsheet that multiple people fill out. Each person fills out all the information in a row. At the end of the row, I would like a button that says "Generate Form" so that when clicked, a new sheet automatically opens with a template form that I created and is already filled out with the information that was just inputted into the spreadsheet. Also, there are four different template forms that could generate. For example, there are forms A, B, C and D. If the user inputs "B" into the first column of the row, then when he goes to click "Generate Form", a new sheet is created with all the information filled out in Form B.
I am currently using the below to generate a message prompt. I have two questions that require assistance.
1. How can I furthur tweak it to show the value contains in the cell that correspond to the date?
For example in cell A2 contains date value; Cell B2 is the order number.
If the date in A2 matches today's date, the message prompt should carry Cell B2's value instead of B2 that is displayed as of below code.
2. Can I set the prompt date to be like 15 days after today's date?
Example: Today is 05/01. There will be a prompt if the date in cell A2 is 05/16.
Private Sub Workbook_Open() Dim r As Range, ff As String, msg As String With Sheets("Test") Set r = .Columns(1).Find(Date, , xlFormulas, xlWhole) If Not r Is Nothing Then ff = r.Address Do msg = msg & vbLf & r.Address(0, 0) Set r = .Columns(1).FindNext(r) Loop Until ff = r.Address End If End With MsgBox IIf(Len(msg), "Matches Found:" & msg, "No match found") End Sub
I have a workbook called "Staff Planner". I need to check Columns C to I in Sheet "Plan" to firstly find text in a red font, and then copy this value to Sheet "Useage" in Column K. (So, search C1:I1, find red font, copy contents of cell, paste value to K1). I then need to repeat this with blue font/value to H1, green font/value to E1, and finally pink font/value to B1
We have an Office issues spreadsheet where our staff post questions/issues they have. These items are then allocated to a member of staff to look into and resolve. Each issue is entered on a seperate row on the spreadsheet, with the issue in column C, the allocated persons initials in column H, their e-mail address in column I (pulled in from a look-up table based on their initials), and the response required date in J.
I would like the spreadsheet to automatically send an e-mail when the issue is allocated to a person, or is re-allocated to someone else, ie when the 'allocated to' cell changes.
The e-mail message would only need to inform them that an issue on "column C text" in "filename" has been allocated to them and that a response is required by "column J date". We use Excel and Outlook 2003.
I am trying to get spreadsheet cells to change colour relating to arrival and departure dates. I also need the cells to be assigned value so I can use them to calculate cost based on number of nights, eg arrive Sept 10 dept Sept 15 = 5 nights. I can then use this 5 to multiply out costs.
I have attached an example of what I am trying to achieve.
I have searched the forum and saw similar questions but I couldnt apply them.
Trying to run a VBA to colour a range of cells based on the input of a name. I can write the basic level VBA to colour one cell by numerical input but struggling to see how this can be adapted to colour a range of cells and if instead of 1,2,3,4 etc the case could be replaced as text: eg Joe, John, Jason etc.
I have been given the following code and it works great. I now need to adapt it to the following scenario: In the attached sheet, the user has to select either, "Suburban" or "Squad" in row 5. If the user selects, "Suburban" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "B". If the user selects, "Squad" I need this script to compare the values they enter in a given row to the value in column "C".
Look at row 48, for example. If the user enters, "Suburban" in cell D5 then the value they enter in cell D48 should equal "1". If it does not equal "1" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment. Conversely, if the user enters, "Squad" in cell D5 then the value the enter in cell D48 should equal "2". If it does not equal "2" then it should proceed with the adding of a comment.
column A = Date : 01/02, 07/02, 14/02, 21/02, 28/02 (x-axis : shows when the table is updated) column B = project: x, x, x, x, ,x (name of the project and trend line) column C = Delivery Date : 01/05/2009, 08/05/2009, 20/05/2009, 30/05/2009, 28/02/2009 (plotted on the graph) column D = Status : Green, Amber, Red, Green, Blue (status of the project. the points should be the same colour as is described in the table) column E = Comments: original, delay, supply, out of money, on track, delivered-wow! (these comments will pop up if the user holds the cursor over a point)
NB Y-axis scale : 01/01/2009 to 31/12/2009 with increments of 14 days. this will be the same scale used for all projects.
Date Project Delivery Date Status Comments 01/02 x 01/05/2009 Green original date 07/02 x 08/05/2009 Amber delay supply 14/02 x 20/05/2009 Red out of money 21/02 x 30/05/2009 Green on track 28/02 x 28/02/2009 Blue delivered-wow
So id like the macro to draw the line for project x based on the 'delivery date'. The points should be coloured according to the 'status' column and when you hover the mouse over the point the data lable will show up taking info from the 'comments' column.
Would it be possible to create a macro that will be able to generate this graph automatically. I have a few projects id like to do the same thing for.
I need to fill 2 other cells with varying colours dependant on what is chosen within another cell.
I have a drop-down list in cell A2 to select either ON SITE, ACTIVE or CANCEL.
What I need then basically is... if A2 equals 'ON SITE' then fill other two cells (A3 and B1) GREEN if A2 equals 'ACTIVE' then fill other two cells (A3 and B1) YELLOW if A2 equals 'CANCEL' then fill other two cells (A3 and B1) RED
I have a calendar set up with dates going along P6:CU6. Column C9:C27 has various status' for the job such as "Complete" or "In Progress" etc. Next to that in rows D and E I have start and end dates for the job. What I am trying to do is change the fill colour of the empty cells that are in line with each job, so that between the correct dates they are the corresponding colour to the status. So a complete job on row 9 that started on 26/05/14 and finished on 28/05/14 would have three green cells along Q9, R9, and S9.
I have tried an IF/AND/OR statement which looks like this:
I am getting a #VALUE! data type error, I have tried reformatting the cells to various date formats but no luck so far. This could be because my dates are set up as =P6+1 etc. but I am not sure. The error only occurs when the cell falls within the dates, otherwise it remains blank.
I intend to hide the value in the cell and use conditional formatting to change the cell colour based on the hidden input.
Once this is working I also need to take weekends into account, column G has any 2 value combination of Y and N to say whether the employee is working Saturday, Sunday or both. Row 7 has a "1" value underneath every Saturday and a "2" underneath every Sunday. I can imagine how this would work but combining it with the above formula could be complicated.
I have a table which says that this is the amount of coloured cells we have in another sheet.
Field Name Code A Item Description 5
Now, the item description column has 5 cells in another sheet which are filled in with "Yellow" Colour. So what i want to do is to click on this 5 in sheet 2 in this case as per the attached sample which takes me to the filtered result on sheet1 of 5 yellow coloured cells under the column of Item description including an additional filter of Code "A"
So I have a macro that colors the selected cells in a certain color. Now im looking for a code that will switch that color every 7th cell, the cells will only be selected horizontally. For example:
if the selected range is 10 cells, 7 of them should be in one color and 3 of the should be in another. But if the selected range is 15 cells the first 7 should have one color and the next 7 should have another and then the last one should have the first color again, and so on..
I'm looking to set up a spreadsheet whereby individuals answer questions and have to format their answer using a particular font, colour, font size and so on. The idea is that I can then compare their answer sheet to a pre completed one using an =IF function and get a total score. The only problem is =if and =exact only lookup cell text/numbers and don't look at how the text is formatted within them.
In the xls for each step I have 2 raws-planned and actual. Step planned duration is populated manually over the weeks.Before that row we have another reflecting the actual step status per week
I would like to find a way how cell reflecting the actual status of a step can be automatically populated (coulored) based on the colour/value of activities that are planned for that week and for that step.Activities are listed below the step and again have planned and actual row.
The rule should be : if for a week we have several activities all of them should be finished in order to have step stataus auto populated as green. If a single activity planned for that week is not done-then weekly step status should be red.
The activities for each step are grouped below the step. It seems that one of the difficult part in that request would be how formula will understand where starts and finishes the activities that belong to one step. To get that happen I placed a column showing step and another column where we activity.
The table on Sheet 1 is being used a record system for history of each lifting equipment we mobilized to our client for rental. The Door No. (Column A) is a name for each equipment. The Date Mobilized is the date when equipment left our premises and started working on site and Date Demobilized is the date when equipment went back to our yard.
To explain my requirement, refer to the first 7 rows indicates that the Door No. ATC0005. It was mobilized 7 times but demobilized 6 times. Meaning that the equipment is currently deployed because the last mobilization dated 01-Jul-13 doesnt have an corresponding data of Demobilization. My first requirement is to have a filter where in it will show the list of currently mobilized equipment. In that case I just go to Date Demobilized and filter it by only showing the blanks.
My second requirement is to know how to filter to only show the available equipment. I was able to analyze it this way: For example we take a look at the history of FLD0001, it has 5 Mobilization Date and 5 Demobilization Date. So i need to know a function to filter a Door No. that has the same number of Mobilization Date and Demobilization Date. My first solution is to just filter the Date Demobilized to not show blanks hence it will show all equipment that has the same number of Date Mob. and Date Demob. But my exact requirement is to have a real time report on a separate sheet (refer to Sheet 2).
Sheet 2 is report for equipment status. Under Equipment (Column A) are the list of equipment. Using the data available on Sheet 1, the cells under Client (Column B) should be filled up either "Available" or "Deployed".
Lastly, for all Deployed equipment only the Client Name should also be retrieved on the report on Sheet 2.
I want a cell to be equal to another cell including the colour, conditional formatting as the colour will have no relevance to the cell value i.e. the colour will be set manually dependant on what stage of the lifecycle it is at
The original cell may have a date and be yellow and I want the target cell to be yellow with the same date, if someone then changes the original cell to be red the target cell should automatically change to Red
Is there an easy way to do this or do I need some VB script?
I have a sheet (sheet1) of around 900 rows with data in columns A-K. Column B contains a unique value.
Sheet2 contains data which needs to be highlighted in sheet1 and each row in identified by a unique value in Column B.
In sheet 1, I only want to highlight the cell which exists in sheet 2 for the matching reference number in column B. For example, in sheet2, the value 'PM328491CN' exists and the value 'CN' is present in cell c2. I want the cell that contains this value in sheet 1 to be highlighted (cell C6).
So, find the matching reference, the highlight the cell in the row which is present in both sheets.
I need a Macro which pulls the data from different sheets of excel (which is not formatted properly) to Main Sheet. Also some of the columns will not have the same names, so macro should handle this exception as well.
