Macro Fill Down Function Is Changing Format In Conditional Formatting
Dec 18, 2013
When I hit the macro code you see below I get both columns D and E, starting from row 18, to get 'filled down' to the specified spot. Every second row has a conditional format (when a value is entered in column A) to change the row to the color grey, and every row between it has a conditional format (when any value is entered in column A as well) to have the row changed to the color red. The issue here is that the Macro code messes up the conditional formatting and uses the conditional formatting of those two cells, which are being dragged down, for those entire filled-down columns! This is what I am starting off with test1.xlsm and this is what I end up with using the macro code below (or doing it manually)
Is there a way for the Macro code to bypass this issue?
I would like to change the number format of a cell in function of the value of another cell. For example, if A1=1, then I would like the cell A2 to be displayed as a percentage. If A1=2, then would like the cell A2 to be displayed as a number.
We have a spreadsheet that is sent to a manager weekly. The manager takes the sheets from 30+ individuals and copies all into a single workbook that is then distributed to a very large audience and reviewed weekly. In this workbook, I have created drop downs with conditional formatting - Low = Green, Medium = Yellow, Critical = Red. On the original workbook, this formatting works great, however, after the manager consolidates and redistributes all worksheets the Green shows Gray, Yellow is OK and Red shows Black.
My VBA code should post the formula "=IF($B6=""Store URL"",TRUE,FALSE)" into the conditional formatting formula box but everytime it pastes something different, such as "=IF($B11="Store URL",TRUE,FALSE)"
The full code is:
Sheet1.Select Set ConditionalFormattingRange = ActiveSheet.Range("B6:F505") ConditionalFormattingRange.FormatConditions.delete
Below is a code that works for this attachment Invoice.xlsm When you hit the code you will see how the 2 left most columns disrupt the conditional formatting resulting in one color for those columns as opposed to every second row with one color and the rows between them another color. modify this code so that the conditional formatting remains the same? (I highlighted the part in the code that needs attention).
I have written in some conditional formatting to have a cells automatically updated based on a response in a cell above. That is: If a no response is chosen to a certain question, then all other questions in that range are to also be a No response. I have attached the document im working on with an outline of what the problem is!!!!
I have 10 rows of 6 numbers, all between 1 & 49, in the range A1:F10. I also have the range A20:AW20, which are all currently blank cells. When I type a number between 1 and 49 inclusive into the range A20:AW20, any number that matches it in the range A1:F1 I want the cell to fill in colour.
I have information in A1. I want A1 to look at B2:B5 and D2:D5 (Under conditional formatting) and if there is one or more "X" in those cells to color A1 Grey (Fill). I keep trying to put a formula under conditional formatting, but it is only working for the first cell (B2) and not the rest.
The spreadsheet I've been working on is functionally working how I would like, but I am looking to improve it cosmetically. I have a range of cells in which I input scores. Those scores are averaged in blocks of the value of cell B1. I would like to fill the cells yellow if they are a multiple of the value of B1.
ive got the following code looking to delete the entire row that contains cell H with a red interior fill (colour index 3). it has been coloured using a conditional format rule. When I run the code it deletes all rows?
Sub DeleteIfRed () Dim LastRow As Long Dim i As Long
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
Is it possible to format a row of cells (B7:KX7) depending on the value in column (G7:G1000) changing?
For example column G might have the following value entered into them.
A A A B B B C C C
So all the rows containing the letter A would be formatted one colour, then it would notice it changed to B and format all the rows with the letter B in, then C etc... The letters would always appear in blocks of 10 or more (representing students in a group) so it wouldn't go A,B,A,B,C,D,E
I am not bothered about the letter being tied to a certain colour, it just needs to change when the letter changes. I'd have no more than 10 different variables in this column, meaning no more than 10 different colours to format. Formatting would be black text with different coloured backgrounds.
In Mr Excel's Pod Cast on April 12th, he showed how to use the OFFSET function to define a range inside a SUM function. Then he had Conditional Formatting that would highlight the range that was being summed. Can anyone tell me what the formula would be inside the Conditional Formatting dialog box to get the OFFSET range to have a certain format?
How to copy and paste conditional formatting with our changing the cell values. My first row of data starts in row 4 and here is what I have in D4
If D4 is less than or equal to AA4, AW4, BS4, CO4 then it will highlight D4
Now I want to copy that format and paste it for all rows in column D. The problem I'm having though is when I paste the formula it doesn't change to match the row I'm on. For example, when I paste it in D5 this is what I get
If D5 is less than or equal to AA4, AW4, BS4, CO4 then it will highlight D5
How do I paste it so that it will update to show AA5, AW5, BS5, and CO5. I want to be able to do this for 500 rows.
I need to run a loop through a column of values (attachment col B) and when it finds a "J" it will apply conditional formatting to a row of 4 cells directly adjacent. The attachment is a theoretical before & after.
I'm a average excel user, i know my way around it and kow common and basic formulee, VB isnt a strong point, but i am willing to attemp anything for this, let me explain
Lets say in colum A I have a list of items, in colum B i have a check box, currently the check box is red, if i tpye a x it turns green due to conditional formating. That works fine...onto the problem...
Lets say in colum A i have my items but they are repeated...eg A1, A145, A166, A122 are all the same item, what i want is regardless of where i place the x each check box under coloum B either gets a X and turns green, or just turns green, i dont mind...
I dont think conditional formatting can cut this, though i may be wrong. Ive tried to use the IF function under condtional formatting but ran into problems...
I have a spreadsheet that uses VB macros to calculate sums of cells based on the font color of the numbers inside. It used to be fairly easy going through each cell and "classifying" them by color, so that my macros can go ahead and sum the numbers in each respective color's cell... but now I have a huge amount of numbers and would like to automate the process somewhat. Here's an example using the A and B columns:
flight $400 hotel $150 hotel $130 meal $20 meal $15 flight $350
I tried using conditional formatting to automatically change the color of the adjacent cells based on the presence of a keyword such as "flight" or "hotel", but this change is only cosmetic, and doesn't actually change the font color (it is still the default black, hence why my color-summing macros won't work!).
I'm including a sample macro for what I use to color-sum my cells, but what I am looking to automate the color-coding process based on looking for keywords as explained above in my example. Here is one of the working color-summing macros (for red, in this case) if you'd like to use it as a reference:
Function SumRed(SelectedCells As Range) ' Adds the values of the cells where the font colour is red(3). Dim Cell As Object Dim x As Double
