Multiple Filters Or Advanced Search Criteria Not Working In Conditional Formatting?
Jul 18, 2014
I have created a spreadsheet that will show me where people are working on what day, etc. however i want to be able to filter by week to create a list of say 2 particuar shifts - in this case "syl ld" and syl n so that the spreadheet would show the people who are working these shifts and I could print out. I have tried Multiple Filters and Advanced search but cannot achieve what I require
I can't seem to get the hang of advanced filters with multiple criteria. BTW, I have no problem solving for a single criteria. I've found many instructions on how to do it, but zero specific syntax examples, and I'm obviously doing it wrong. For example: ....
I have a problem with the attached spreadsheet. I have certain letters (A,B,C etc.) that are shipped to various regions. I would like to have a count on top to count the total number of orders, but one that also counts the total number of unique orders. However, this unique count has to be dynamic and must be able to adjust accordingly to the filters (by default, if no other filters are applied, should be 15). For example, if I apply the "Ship To" filter to Canada, the total number should be 19, but the unique count should be 12. If I change the "Ship To" filter to US, the total number should be 9, and the unique count should be 7. I've tried to use the advanced filters but if I apply the unique entries filter, it is only a one time calculation. Also, the advanced filter gets rid of my other filters.
using VBA I have a control sheet which summerises variouse counts & totals of data held on a detail sheet. Bu using filters and counting the visable rows.
Statistics on 50 columns of data held in several thousand (rows) mixed around eight business regionsheld in first column.
I could determin the number of affected rows by using Tick boxes on the control sheet and applying filters to the detail records
A) checkbox indicates if I need filtering on the type of data in my detail sheet and apply the filter Selection.AutoFilter Field:=XX, Criteria1:="Y"
B) Because I could not have more than two criteria on an autofilter column I resorted to using Advanced Filter on the column with the Business UNIT's, I Create a range write the criteria of the records to be filtered into the range, then apply an advanced filter using that range.
Both of these work well indevidually, but I am getting inconsistant results when I mix them
using the autofilter route I can select multiple tick boxes and the output is correct, and using the advanced filter I can select any combination of business units and the output is correct, however I cant get them to work together
I have a spreadsheet where a charity has a list of donors (about 500 rows) and the amount given over a number of years (1999-2007 columns B to I). Say for example, one donor gives in years 2000, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2007 I need the conditional formatting to realise what number gift it is and apply the appropriate colour to the cell with the value in it (e.g. 1st donation white background, 2nd donation yellow background, 3rd green, 4th orange, 5th purple). Obviously different companies donate in different years so the code needs to apply to the whole sheet when the donations occur.
how to adapt the solution so it would work in multiple cells. Since I was told to start a new thread, here it is. I want to format a cell based on its contents, If it has one of three entries, it should be greyed. I then want to use the conditional format across the whole page, but the solution given in the other thread refers to a single cell, how can I do this without that reference?
formatiing a cell, e.g. change color to RED, in the event the value is a duplicate. To make it clear, I need to show that if the Serial Number of a product just entered is a duplicate and should change color when a combination of conditions is true. i.e. if a "part number" AND the currently entered "serial number" already exist, the entered serial numbers should change color.
I'm trying to set up conditional formatting in a spreadsheet where there are 3 possible correct letters that can be entered into a range of cells and if one of these letters is not entered then I would like the cell to be highlighted.
To be more precise, it's an accommodation spreadsheet and in each cell if someone needs a room for that particular night (each night is represented by a separate column) then a letter is used to indicate what type of room they require i.e. "k" is a king room, "s" is a Suite and "t" is a twin. I don't want to force people to have to select from a list which would be the obvious solution to this as it is simply too cumbersome for the amount of data entry we do.
However i want to ensure that if someone accidentally enters anything other than t,k or s then the cell is highlighted. We work in large spreadsheets covering months of dates so to manually have to find any errors is hugely time consuming.
I am trying to do a conditional formatting based on the result in one cell but it needs to add up multiple cells first to determine which conditional format it needs to use. I am not sure whether I need to do a formula conditional format or whether to use cell is greater than with =sum() in it. I have tried both but neither seem to be working correctly. I have attached an example of the spreadsheet and the conditions I am trying. I am using 2010 version.
Basically, the closing amount for Monday in prod 1 (cell c4), needs to display in red if sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4) & Fri (R4) is greater than that value or display in amber if the sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4).
I need to complete the same for the whole column for Monday (col C) for each appropriate product. Then the same for column B but this will sum different cells but the principal will be the same.
I am having some problems trying to filter a list to display exactly what I want to see. The list has one column of part numbers, a second with due dates, and then another with quantity.
I want to use an advanced filter on the part numbers to only look at unique entries. Then I want to filter that list using a custom filter on the due dates to only view those due within a certain period. So ultimately I want to view only unique entries due during a given period.
I am able to apply one filter, but when I go to apply the second, the second filter removes the first. For example once I have filtered out duplicates, when I try to filter based on date all of the duplicates return.
I need to use the Advanced Filter tool to allow the user to filter (in-place) the Guests worksheet while providing the following summary stats: total revenue, ave. revenue, max/min revenue and total number of tours ie the user should be able to enter any criteria below the database to to show only those records (and summary stats) that satisfy the criteria.
To automate the operation of the advanced filter tool, I need three macros. "SelectRoom" and "SelectGuest" macros should prompt the user to enter a value through an input box to filter the data according to a client's name or language tour. The third macro, called "ShowAllGuests" should clear the criteria row and dispay all clients in the database.
The first two macros should include an error message to prompt the user to rerun a macro if no clients satisfied the criteria while the "ShowAllGuests" macro should include a message box statement at the end to display a short message giving credit to the macro author. These macros also require a button each (three in total) in the Guests worksheet!
Can I use vba advancedfilter to work with more than one criteria?
I presently have one range designated. At the top cell has the field, or column, header name being "Student", then followed by a list of 6 people, located in Sheets("Extract").Range("A1:A7"), which is then extracted from Sheets("Complete").Range("tblPrimary[#ALL]") to Sheets("Extract").Range("AA1") as in:
I want to also be able to filter out a specific month, whose field/column name just happens to be "Month", but I suspect I will need to change it to "InfoMonth" or the like to avoid the probable key word of "Month"...
The months are numerical in those fields - 1 through 12.
Can I add to the present filtering line or do I need to then create an additional filter?
I have a list of farmers in A1:A1000 with the types of livestock they keep in col B, delimited with commas and spaces e.g:
Col A Col B Name Animals Smith Cows, Pigs, Sheep, Horses Jones Sheep, Pigs, Chickens, Geese, Alpaccas Price Cows, Sheep, Pigs, Chickens, Rabbits Williams Cows, Chickens, Horses, Alpaccas, Pigs
I need to be able to filter this list using up to 3 criteria, e.g. Filter all farmers with Cows, AND Sheep, AND Pigs. Applying this to the data above would show Smith and Price.
The user would need to enter the criteria somewhere, preferably in 3 cells, let's say D1, D2, & D3. I reckon I need to use Advanced Filter, but not sure how to do it with all the animal types to be filtered being in one column.
I'm creating a database that contains a columns of hyperlinks and background color.
I've created code on Excel 2010 with advanced filters to copy selected rows to another worksheet. The extract works fine and those cells with hyperlinks and various color codes from the original database "appear" to have been extracted correctly.
However, a closer look shows the hyperlinks on the target worksheet are just blue underlined texts...with the links no longer working. Is there a way for me to correct this?
I have a spreadsheet that i am tracking some Training dates on. i have the requirements written in the box categorgy on the attachement if anyone wants to see it. Ok so so far in the B colum (contains date of a computer based training (CBT))i have this conditional formatting: Formats for Red background
If a1=today and b1=null then colour of cell should be green, or If a1=today and b1between today and +7days then colour of cell should be yellow If a1=today and b1 between today and +14 days then colour of cell should be green
I am trying to do this in conditional formatting, but it doesnt work. As when we try copy to all cells the ref is still for B1 so it wont work on a spreadhseet with many data rows.
I have set up a basic sheet for a colleague, whereby the Team Leader can enter client names into a control sheet, and then the team can add the client names into the allocations sheet when they take on the care for that client, and Conditional Formatting colour codes the cells to show which program a client comes under.
My problem is, the conditional formatting works perfectly on my computer, and another colleague's computer, but for two other colleagues, only half of the colour coding works... leaving half of the clients cells white, indicating they are not allocated to a program.
I have checked that we are all using the same network pathway, macro security settings etc.
I have a spreadsheet that has values in the end column that read Addition, Deletion or No Change. I am trying to get the row cells in Column A to shade red, green or yellow depending on the value of the cells in Column I. I have tried the folllowing:
I chose the fill to be green for this but when I click OK nothing happens but I do not get any error messages.
I am trying to do a conditional formatting for the number of working days. What I am trying to do is:
As in the row D7 I give the actual workdays required to finish the task the Gantt Chart gets a specific formatting on the right appears for the number of working days.
I want to avoid the formatting if there are any weekend (Saturday or sunday)
Suppose I give number of working days as 20 then there would be 6 weekend days so it shall add to the overall actual working days but again sinnce we are adding 6 additional days one more weekend day would come in between so the formatting shall take care of this.
I have a spreadsheet which uses conditional formatting to highlight cells with certain values. It's works perfectly, except for a single cell. The formatting formula is and should be exactly the same as other cells in the sheet. For whatever reason, this cell will not change with the formatting rules. The cell is not protected, it doesn't have any oddball values or anything that I can see.
I am trying to remove the docs that have two Bill types that cancel each other out, where the qtys match and highlight the rows where the qtys don't match. The macro needs to have the positive and negative bill types programatically entered, where for example F1 and F2 are positive and S1 and RE are negative. Keep in mind the data may not necessarily be in order as it is above.
So for example with data above, the rows for doc 777 would be removed completely because the item numbers are the same, the qty is the same, and the bill types oppose each other. Doc 123 and Item 10 lines should be highlighted since their bill types are opposed bu their qtys don't match.
I hope this makes sense. I tired to achieve this using multiple loops and arrays, but ran out of memory when working with the entire set of data. I'm assuming their must be a better way to do this, I'm hoping some of the intelligent individuals here will be able to point in the right direction.
I have a conditional formula that highlights dates red when it meets a certain criteria. The file named MS Working, the conditional formatting formula (formula below) works as it should with no issues. The other file MS NOT Working, the conditional formatting formula (formula below) has stopped working as it should. What I did? I inserted a new column to the left. Where the MS Working file has only 1 column to the far left, the MS NOT Working file now has 2 columns to the far left.
It seems as if the formula adjusted itself when I inserted the new column; however, its not working.
MS Working Conditional Formula: =AND(TODAY()>B3,NOT(ISODD(COLUMN())),B3<>"",OR(C3="",C3=0),B3<>0)
MS NOT Working Conditional Formula: =AND(TODAY()>C3,NOT(ISODD(COLUMN())),C3<>"",OR(D3="",D3=0),C3<>0)
I have a workbook with many many sheets in it. The first sheet contains a single column with about 10,000 different values. I'd like to use each of these as search criteria against ALL data in the other sheets (of which there are a good 50 or so). If matches are found (they don't have to be exact case), then I'd like two things to happen:
1. The rows containing the matched search criteria in the first sheet are highlighted.
2. In the cells adjacent to the search criteria in the first sheet, hyperlinks to the matched data are created and named after the sheet upon which this matched data appears.
I've attached a sample file to this post with ideal sample 'answers' to queries made of the first 2 terms.
Is there "code" for different formatting in a spreadsheet so you can use an IF statement to do something like:
etc.?? But replace "blue background" and "red text" with some sort of number code? I want to compile a list of the items that are formatted with certain background colors and/or text colors and then organize only those items into a chart.
Basically, would like to have the following conditional formatting:
There is a fruit listed and the are person 1 and person 2. If the fruit under Person 1 or Person 2 matches the fruit under Fruit, the cell under either person 1 or person 2 highlights green; if it does not match, it highlights red. If the fruit has not been listed under fruit, such as in cell A3, cells B3 and C3 are not highlighted.
On one of our computers at work, Excel is acting especially strange. The conditional formatting in Excel on one of our computers is not working. In addition, we cannot fill a cell with any color or change the color of the writing. We can click a color for the letters and type it in, but immediately after another cell is highlighted, the writing goes black again. When we try to highlight multiple cells with the cursor, the cells are black instead of the normal color. This happens to not just spreadsheets that are new, but existing spreadsheets on our shared drive from only this one computer as well. No other computers are affected this way. All other computers show the spreadsheets fine and do not have any functionality issues.
