My spreadsheet has rows with inspection numbers in column A, but there are varying numbers of rows associated with an inspection number. I'd like to change the color of the rows for every other inspection number to yellow using a formula. I think it has to involve an if/then statement but I can't figure out how to word the formula to just choose every other group of inspection numbers.

I wrote a macro to color the cell values in the rows based on their average value. For eg if the cell value is less than 0.2 Avg, they should be red color,if value is between 0.2 and 0.5 it should be yellow. This part is working fine

Now based on the color of the rows cells , need to write a macro for the header one. Logic is Coloum header should be in red colour, if in one or more number of rows cells are red. same with yellow ones. Could you please help me out in solving this with logic.

Is there a way to shade alternating rows in a range and have it always be alternating no matter if a row is added in the middle of the range. If I do it manually now and add a row it messes up the shading and fixing it manually is very time consuming.

In column H I have dates from 1/1/2008 to 12/31/2013. What I would like to do is transfer that data to column J, but alternate it every other row and then insert the word Date into the blank cells. For instance J1 would read "Date" and then J2 would read 1/1/2008 J3 would be Date and J4 would be 1/2/2008. I have a large database and I tried to use array formulas and they slow it down to a crawl so I was working with DSUM, but I don't feel like wasting time with adding in Date manually.

I'm looking for a way to count groups of alternating rows of "TRUE" values across 3 columns. There will never be an occurrence of more than one "TRUE" value per row. In the sample below, alternating TRUE values occur in rows 4 through 7, so this would be counted with the groups of 4.

I am interested in selecting cells in alternating rows as follows:

12 Red Happy 00 Unique descriptor 13 Grn Sad 03 Unique descriptor 14 Yel Happy 02 Unique descriptor

I am interested in selecting all the "12, 13, etc", "Red, Grn, ..." and "Happy, Sad..." for analysis, but want to skip all the rows containing the 0- numbers and the descriptors for them. How do I quickly select only the alternating cells in a column within a selection?

I'm trying to use the following formula in conditional formatting in cell A2 when the range A2:AW64 is selected (this conditional formatting will be copied to all cells in the selected range):

Formula is: =isodd($A2)

The error I keep getting is this:

"You may not use references to other worksheets or other workbooks for Conditional Formatting criteria."

I'm trying to use this conditional formatting because column A is our "Order" column. "Order" can be from 1 to 13 and this column is sorted ascending. There can be multiple rows in each Order number. So I want to shade all 1's, 3's, 5's, etc... so that each Order group has alternating shading.

I also want to use conditional formatting, not VBA, to get this to work. In the future, rows might be added to an Order number or two and I want the shading to automatically adjust.

If the cell contains: Closed then highlight the row Light Red If the cell contains: In Progress then highlight the row Light Green If the cell contains: Pending then highlight the row Yellow If the cell contains: Assigned then highlight the row Light Blue

I have a spreadsheet that i download from the net daily, which is seperated into columns of information.

I want to be able to look down a column and mark a cell in a seperate column if the cell font text is red.

For example looking down column A ... if the font text of a1 is red then mark the cell background colour of T1 red - if a2 text colour is red then mark the cell T2 red .... etc etc.

If the font colour in a1 or a2 ... etc etc is any other colour then do nothing.

I have 5 columns I wish to look down and mark in 5 seperate columns - I have tried to do this by conditional formating but don't know the fomula for checking font colour.

I have a column (k) of 65,000 rows with numbers that are either positive or negative digits. The next column (L) has classified them as either 1 for positive number or 2 for negative.

There may be a run of all positive or all negative numbers or 2 positives and 3 negatives or any combination of positive and negative numbers reading down the column.

Reading down the column (from L1), I need to find any sequence of alternating 1 positive, followed by 1 negative or vice versa.

I am looking for evidence to find any sequence that has more than 2 alternations. (Remembering that positive is 1 and neg is 2)

That is, two or more alternations of a positive followed by a negative or neg followed by a positive.

I'm writing a macro that’s taking user input (from a form I developed) and will generate a chart according to the input.

One requirement for this chart is that the background alternates fill colors between gray and white. Every four columns need to be either gray or white. Based on the duration the user entered, the width of this chart is created. The length (the number of rows) is constant.

I've tried different loops (for, if, do - you name it I tried) This loop is just out of my league. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Summary of Facts: - Starting Point of Chart is B2 (the top left corner of the chart will be in B2) - the number of columns is dynamic (based on user input) - The rows are constant are (2 through 16) - Every four columns need the fill color to be either gray or white

I'm sure there's a simple way to do this (I've been trying countif/match formulas but I'm not quite there)! I need to group line items with the same dollar value, WITHIN say 1 cent. If I do a pivot it will group exact matches, but I'm looking for the flexibility to group something within a few cents. So instead of pivots, I was trying to think of a formula that would do what Column A is doing below:

*I manually added Column A, looking for a formula that would group dollar values within 1 cent, assuming I've sorted Column B from smallest to largest:

A word text blablabla B word text blablabla A dog cat france B dog cat france B this that other A this that other A tiger dragon monkey B tiger dragon monkey

My source data I can't get to sort alternating on columns A and B, and I would like the data to alternate A-B-A-B-A-B while retaining the pairings of data in the adjacent fields. Is this possible?

I have a spreadsheet that contains thousands of rows and I need to highlight all the duplicates in Column B.

What I need though is one group o duplicates to be colored one color and then the next group of duplicates be colored a different color. I need just a 2 color banding.

My need for 2 colors is that the cells contain 9 digit numbers and there can be duplicate groups right next to each other and for the eye to distinguish a different grouping of cells I need that 2 color banding.

I have the below code that colors everything in one color. Can I be modified or a completely new code to do 2 colors?

Code: Sub Dups() Dim Rng As Range Dim CL As Range

Set Rng = Range(Range("B1"), Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))

For Each CL In Rng If WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Rng, CL.Value) > 1 Then CL.Interior.ColorIndex = 6 End If Next CL End Sub

how to add alternating cells when all are numbers, e.g. B8 to KW8 are all numbers and I want to add B8, D8, F8, etc. until KV8 and then separately add C8, E8, G8, etc until KW8. Is there a more efficient way to do this than =sum(b8,D8, etc)? I also need to do the same with =counta(b8, d8, etc).

so I have been googling to figure out how to write a macro that will select every other column on my workbook. All that keeps coming up is conditional formatting, which I do not want. I am not trying to highlight the columns in alternating colors, I just want to select them.

I am starting at column F and I would like it to search until the end of the columns and select every other column ending with the last column with data in it.

I know I could search by a specific row and tell it to find the first blank cell then offset it, but there is no particular row that will always have data in it, so I guess it needs to check by column until it finds the first column without any data in all rows and then offset it.

Anyone know what I am talking about here?

I know it should be fairly simple but I couldn't seem to find any answers anywhere else.

Also, anyone know any good websites that have definitions for some basic macros? I'd love to start learning how to write this stuff on my own.

I am having a hard time getting my match functions to work with letters and numbers in the same range. I am also trying to figure out a way to have the ranges switch if there is an error. because the data is in multiple columns. It is hard to explain so I have attached a sample workbook.

I need to separate these lines into columns such that, for example, the first line would be in 6 columns: (Jackson, TN) (9623) (BCBS TN) (98) (UnitedHlthCare) (2)

The delimiter does not work because some of there is no one character that always separates the text and the numbers. I've tried going through in word and typing something like '%' where I want to separate, but with thousands of lines of data that is extremely tedious.

Is there any formula I can use that would be capable of solving this?

I am looking for a way to highlight groups of identical number cells in alternating grey and white. My goal is to make it clear when there is a repeating set of numbers. Below is an example of what a completed state of this would look like that I created manually. The real form I will be using this code on will have long number which is why I am looking for this added clarification. I am using excel 2010.

how you make the following happen in excel using VBA: I want to make all the even rows a different colour (light grey) all the way down the sheet, so row 2, 4 , 6 etc. I want to leave the odd rows normal.

Ideally I would like the vba to work out the last row and stop there. My sheet is called 'Final Rep'

I have a worksheet that contains column A7 through M7. Row 7 contains the header. Currently I have a small vba procedure that inserts a blank row whenever the data in column G7 changes. Here is the code that does this.

Put the word "Yes" in the "Red" column if any cell in that row is cell (except the header row).

This was not done via conditional formatting. These red cells are the result of many different subs, so modifying these existing subs would not work as I wouldn't know where to begin modifying each one........

I have a spreadsheet where you can choose one of two options per row.

The listbox says either CASH or CHECK. If the user selects CASH, I would like the row to stay the same color. If the user selects CHECK I would like the row to be highlighted or change color. Upon a glance, anyone who knew the system could then tell how many people paid by CHECK, and who they were.
