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.
I am working on developing QR Codes using some MATLAB code and it would be really convenient if I could create an excel program which changed the background color of a cell containing a 1 to black and a cell containing a 0 to white.
I want to change the color of a cell's background based on valid data in the cell. I have a pull-down list, it uses a named list, and this all works fine. I want the cell to be red, and then after the user selects a valid entry from the pull-down list, I want to change the cell to yellow.
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.
Positive cash flow cells all have green background, Negative cash flow cells, all have red background.
I calculate all the "sub- total" columns into one "total sum" cell. Based on this "total sum" I want the cell background to be red if the total sum is negative, or green if total sum is positive. How do I make the cell change to the proper background color based on whether it's a negative or postive total sum?
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.
I got an excel sheet were in column A i have listed a few names and in column B I got their respective results (numbers) with a background color.
I want to insert a function in such a way that when their numbers exceed a certain number the background color changes from for example blue to green. so >1200 = blue background color 1200-1350 = red < 1350 = green
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.
I have an Excel 2010 workbook with many worksheets using hundreds of Form Control (not ActiveX) checkboxes. I need a bit of VBA to change Checkbox background color of each checkbox whenever the user checks the box. I assume this needs to be a click event? I don't even know the Checkbox property name I need to change I'm learning VBA as quick as I can
I would like to have a vba code that changes the cell color so that if there is number 1 (just number 1) in some cell the background of the cell changes in to shade of grey and cell that has number 2 changes into darker shade of grey and so on. I have numbers 1-10 in random order in my sheet. I mean there is many cells that has the same number and the sheet is quite large so vba code would be ideal choise to do it quickly.
I have cells in range L12:BN1000 with formulas that will output a 1 or a 2.
If the output is 1, I would like the cell to color yellow if the output is 2, I would like the cell to color orange
the reason I dont want to use conditional formatting is because the use needs to be able to copy and insert rows and by doing so the use would need to manually add the new cells into the conditional format range. I would like to come up with a macro that applies this condition to a large range.
also, were do I add this macro? under sheet1? this workbook? or as a module?
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:
'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
In cell A1, I have the month number (eg, 1, 2, 3,). The month number reflects current month and will automatically change with every month. For example, right now itís 6, next month it will automatically change to 7. Each two columns in Range A10:X20 represents the data from January to December. I want to use a worksheet event to change the background of the current month two columns in the range to yellow color and the two columns in the range will be visible when I activate this sheet.
I'm working on a sheet that gets filled in with background colors (red, light blue, and green) and I'm trying to come up with a way to automate the process of inputting the text in the red and blue fields (red always gets PROCESS and light blue always gets SHPD) but they end up in different locations in the same columns. is there a function or macro to make this happen? I have constructed a macro to compile the sheet from my online database as it is a live system.
MODELACTIONxxx1xxx2xxx3xxx4xxx5xxx6xxx7xxx8xxx9xxx10xxx11xxx12xxx13xxx14xxx15xxx16xxx17 This is a simplified version of what I'm working with, and i'm on Excel 2000
I have an excel spreadsheet that 7 different categories (eg. Ave waittime, Avg loadtime, etc) that I have conditionally formatted based on 5 ratings (each rating a different color Green, light green, yellow, red, and purple) I would like to be able to give each cell a value based on what color it is eg. Green=5, light green=4 and so on.
I have a data base in which I classify cells in three colors (green, yellow, and red) on my own. I would like the first cell in each column to indicate if there is a red or yellow cell in it's column. Because red cells are more important then yellow cells, if there is a yellow and a red cell in the column, I would like the red to over ride the yellow and the first cell would indicate red.
So basically, if there is a red cell in the column, no matter what other colors there are, the first cell should show red. If there is only yellow or yellow and green cells, the first cell should show yellow. If there are only green cells or green cells and clear, the first cell should show clear.
I am working on a workbook with 200+ sheets and an index linking to each of the sheets. On the sheets there is a cell containing the results of calculations and I need the cell referencing the sheet in the index to change background colors depending if the calculations value is greater or less than 0. I currently have working code that also changes the tab color of each sheet depending on the value, but i am trying to add the index cell background change functionality into that. also, the index listings is subject to change. my working code is
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Range("d34").Value < 0 Then Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 3 ElseIf Range("D34").Value > 0 Then Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 4 Else
and the code i am trying to get working is
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rngX As Range Set myRange = Worksheets("Index").Range("A1:A500").Find(Range("C2").Text, lookat:=xlPart) ' the C2 is the reference the title that would be on the index If Range("d40").Value < 0 Then
I keep getting the runtime error '1004: application-defined error or object-defined error the thing is, i ran the cell background changing code in a normal macro before integrating it in my other worksheet code first and it worked fine. I have a little code experience, though not much in vba and I am unsure what the issue is. if there is another better way to accomplish what I'm tring to do, that would also be fine.
I'm trying to create a tag with a color border. What I desire is to fill the BLANK cells around the tag, A1:D1 + D1:D19 + A1:D19 + A1:19 in a certain color based on the text value of the cell B11. There are 5 different values, such that if the B11 read Red Sox - the boarder is going to be red, if it reads Houston Astros it will be dark blue, etc..
I have a similar problem with changing the color of the cell based on the month. So regardless of the year, 2014, 2015, 2016, etc... If I use MONTH() function I can just get numbers from 1-12. I want Cell C16-C18 to be certain color depending the date entered in cell C17 such that for each quarter, months 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 they are different color.
I have had no luck with conditional formatting (and I also believe that it is good up to 3 cases only). I am decent in logic/programming language but have little knowledge with macro notation and especially how to run them in excel 2013. I do know how to start it alt+F11 and that I need to make sure that code is written under the specific sheet where my tag is located.
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.
I have about 30 spreadsheets that I need to sort data. I'm using a Excel: Mac 2011.
Each sheet has about 100 rows and 80 columns.
I need to extract the rows that have a colored cell somewhere in the row. There are three types of colored cells: black, green, and red. The green and red have X typed in them too. The black cells have D typed in them.
Every row in the sheet has at least one cell with an X in it (colored or not).
I just need the rows with a colored cell to be extracted or filtered from all the rows without colored cells.
How I can change the background colour of cell C:2 depending on what other cell i click? Below a sample of the code im using Basically when i click B:2 i want C:2 to turn grey with the text on top.... Then when i click B:4 i want C:2 to turn Red.....
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Select Case Target.Address Case Is = "$B$2" Range("D2").Value = "No action needed connector is down" 'change this to suit Case Is = "$B$3"
