# Nesting Ceiling Function In IF Function - Conditional Formatting?

May 13, 2013

I am trying to nest an IF function with a CEILING function. If C10 is < 3.5, make it 3.5, however, if C10 > 3.5, CEILING (C10, 5)

right now it looks like:

If (C10

## Conditional Formatting: OFFSET Function To Define A Range Inside A SUM Function

Apr 13, 2007

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?

## Nesting Index / Match Function Within Vlookup Function?

Dec 3, 2013

let me start by saying that I know an example workbook would be useful here, but the part I'm struggling with is the [managementroster.xlsm] file, and there is A. no way I can release it to the internets and B. its so huge/complicated I couldn't even begin to reproduce a portion of it, scrubbed of data, and hope to maintain its functionality in a meaningful manner.

[Code]....

This formula checks a staff number on this spreadsheet, and then goes and looks at the staff number on the roster. Once found, it returns that staff members roster, but changes any manager codes in the MRC list to Mgr, and changes all other roster codes to Free.

I now need this formula, before altering roster codes to Mgr or Free, to only return codes that are a match for another table (or after really. I don't particularly care, so long as only codes are shown that match data from another table). I think an index/match function would do the trick, but this forumula is already at the edge of my excel ability, nesting another function within it is completey beyond me. The relevant cells for the index/match function would be:

This first Match function targets the column. \$E3 is the date required, \$BA\$1:\$DN\$1 is the range the dates are entered in
Match: Lookup value = \$E3
Lookup array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'\$BA\$1:\$DN\$1
match type = 0

This second Match function targets the row. \$A\$4 is the department name, \$B\$434:\$B\$452 is the range where all departments are entered

Match: Lookup value = \$A\$4
Lookup Array = '[ManagementRoster.xlsm]Vacancies!'\$B\$434:\$B\$452
match type = 0

Index: array = \$BA\$434:\$DN\$452

So I think my final function is

[Code] .....

But I have absolutely NO idea where it would fit within my first formula, or how to code it so that my original formula only reproduces results that are found in both sheets, or anything.

## TextBox Overflow When Using Ceiling Function

Apr 18, 2006

I've got a UserForm with a bunch of TextBoxes on which the user is inputting numerical values into.

After any entry a macro is rounding the value to the nearest multiple of 25 using application.worksheetfunctionceiling/floor functionality.

I've got a problem that as the value in the textbox approaches 33,000 I get an overflow error message. (I'm presuming at 32 bits)

## Conditional Formatting (max If Function)

Feb 8, 2014

I would like to use conditional formatting to highlight the max value if the constraints are not violated.

For example,
Row 91 - Profit
Row 94 - Constraint A (750<=A<=855)
Row 95 - Constraint B (12<=B<=17)
So, I tried to type this in conditional formatting but it didn't work ><
=MAX(IF(AND(B94>=750,B94<=855,B95>=12,B95<=17),\$B\$91:\$Q\$91,0))

## Can We Do OR Function In Conditional Formatting?

Dec 14, 2009

Is it possible to use OR function in Conditional Formatting? I want to do the following.

If A1 = 1, A2 cell is filled in Red
If A1 = 2, A2 cell is filled in Red
If A1 = 3, A2 cell is filled in Green,
If A1 = 4, A2 cell is filled in Green,

I only managed to do the above for 3 conditions as Conditional Formatting only allows me to no more than 3.

## How To Use Between Operator In AND Function While Doing Conditional Formatting

Oct 5, 2013

I have three columns named "Type" , "start_date" and "end_date".

Type column can hold only "A","B" and "C".
start_date and end_date columns are time stamps. ex: 9/14/13 9:35 AM

I want to do conditional formatting like,

If type = "A" and (end_date - start_date) value between 30 and 40 (in hrs) then it should be amber.

I did for greater than and lesser than values, but I am facing problem while doing the above one.

## Date Function (conditional Formatting)

Sep 24, 2008

I would like a date in a cell to flag up in a colour (say, red) once the date has expired by a certain period (e.g 7 days). How can I do this (conditional format).

## More Than 3 Conditions For The Conditional Formatting Function?

Apr 24, 2002

Can I have more than 3 conditions for the conditional formatting function?

## Conditional Formatting On MATCH / LOOKUP Function?

Mar 6, 2012

I have an "actual build" worksheet, which allows the user to select which materials were used, material properties (e.g. material grade etc.), including its corresponding length. The user can enter all these in manually, or select the material name from a pre-defined list (Reference worksheet contains this information), and then the associated properties are automatic lookups from the Reference worksheet.

So all this is fine / completed, and the LOOKUP returns its theoretical length from the reference table. However, its actual material lengths will almost never match the theoretical length, so what I want to happen is for a conditional format to highlight the cell, to notify the user that they need to enter a manual value. The auto-looked up length is still useful a proposed build on the worksheet, but having it highlighted to ensure it is manually entered later is the objective.

The other thing is it can't just check if it's a formula, it has to check if it is a formula with a MATCH/LOOKUP function. E.g. it needs to be unhighlighted if someone has a basic formula, ie = 2*0.42 if there two of the item etc..

Hence, I was thinking of having a conditional formula that "format only cells that contain" and then format only cells with "specific text" and "containing" and "MATCH(" text function, however this doesn't seem to work.

Length cell formula:

=OFFSET('Reference- Materials'!\$N\$5, MATCH(\$BO32, Materials_Item_Number, 0), 0) * \$AH32

## IF Function Nesting In Excel, Allows Only 7 Arguments?

Nov 22, 2007

=IF(E18>760,(">760"),(IF(E18>550,("550-760"),(IF(E18>365,("365-550"),(IF(E18>210,("210-365"),(IF(E18>120,("120-210"),(IF(E18>90,("90-120"),(IF(E18>60,("60-90"),(if (E18>30, ("1-30"), (0))))))))))))))))

If you try to use this it will not work, as excel takes only 7 arguments
can someone help me with this. Do any one know macro for the same.

if you use this formule it will work
=IF(E18>760,(">760"),(IF(E18>550,("550-760"),(IF(E18>365,("365-550"),(IF(E18>210,("210-365"),(IF(E18>120,("120-210"),(IF(E18>90,("90-120"),(IF(E18>60,("60-90"),(0))))))))))))))

## Excel 2010 :: Replicate Conditional Formatting Using A User VBA Function?

May 6, 2014

Using Excel 2010.

The background to this question is that I'm trying to replicate conditional formatting using a user VBA function, because I require a thick border around the cells (and the conditional formatting within Excel only has thin borders)

In the final function, there will be 9 combinations of formatting {Red, Amber, Green} interior with {Red, Amber, Green} thick borders.

The formatting is determined by a number in another cell (the "target" cell), which returns a value 0,...,8

I've only got as far as filling in the interior for the first combination, but the function returns an error "Application-defined or object-defined error".

VB:
Function VBA000_003_SetRAG(strTargetRange As String) 'strTargetRange is the reference for the target cell that contains the value 0,...,8

On Error Goto handler [code]....

There is not a problem with the target range, if I remove the two lines relating to rngCaller then the function works OKExecuting the rngCaller.Interior.Color = RGB(255, 0, 0) command through the Immediates window works OKI've tried calling a subroutine & passing the range across

Same errorChanging the range in the subroutine to an absolute range (eg. Sheet1.range("A1")) also causes the

same errorExecuting the subroutine on its own (with the absolute range) works OK

So my guess is that it's a bug/limitation with Excel VBA when trying to execute commands from inside a user function

## 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)

test2.xlsm

Is there a way for the Macro code to bypass this issue?

## Conditional Formatting IF Function To Identify Past Due Items In Red And Items Completed

Aug 13, 2014

I have a spreadsheet that lists a set of actions and the days they need to be completed.

The due dates are listed in column c and in column h I have a the user choosing "completed" from a drop down data validation.

I have a dashboard on a separate worksheet, showing if the item is complete and the due date.

Ideally I would like to display the dates on the dashboard in red if they are past due, and the box in column h was not marked complete.

I have been going through my books and trying to solve this, but I run into a different issues.

Even if for now If I can get the main worksheet to display the color conditional formatting that would work

## Nesting "if" Function: Fragment Marked In Red Is Currently Missing

Feb 23, 2009

In L45 I need function

=IF(L41>0,IF(L44>0,IF(K44>0,(L44-K44)-L42,IF(J44>0,(L44-J44)-L42,IF(I44>0,(L44-I44)-L42,IF(H44>0,(L44-H44)-L42,IF(G44>0,(L44-G44)-L42,IF(F44>0,(L44-F44)-L42,IF(E44>0,(l44-E44)-l42,L44-L42))))))),L44-L42),0)

Fragment marked in red is currently missing and if I want to use it, I would be nesting too many if functions again. To describe the situation: Row 41 is staff available for task, sometimes there is nobody doing the task therefore function will force value 0 in all variances if there is no staff available.

There are also occasions that despite having a number of staff allocated to do the task, nothing’s been received due to a various reasons, this is where I have designed a function calculating hourly variance against what was received against the planned target for this hour. When there is no staff – everything will be 0
When nothing’s been received – target for the hour will be negative. When there was something received – the difference between last receiving figure and current one, minus target for an hour will provide the hourly rate, but If nothing’s been received for the last couple hours, it will go to the last hour when something was received and calculate hourly rate basing on the difference between current figure, last available figure and target for an hour. And here we are at the heart of the problem – in the last cell I cannot use same function as I would have to nest too many “if” functions, therefore it does not include receiving figure in E44 at the moment.

## Conditional Formatting: FIND Function? (get Cell A2 To Fill Red When Cell A2="Public" And A1 Contains "(P)")

Jul 1, 2009

Cell A1: International Studies Academy (P) 9-12
Cell A2: Public

Is there a way that I can get Cell A2 to fill red when cell A2="Public" and A1 contains "(P)"?. I can't seem to get a formula to work yet.

## Conditional IF Function By Name

Dec 4, 2008

I have this spreadsheet I'm making for Christmas to keep track of my wifes and my purchases. I'm having problem with a formula tho and I'm not sure how to go about this. Basically I have a "name" column. As you will see. At the bottom I have "total spent on cristina" "total spent on jon"

I need like an "IF" condition that will look at that name column and say, "if name is Jon" add up the amounts in the "total cost" column according to what Jon spent. If name is cristina, add up her amounts.

## Formatting Control Box By Use Of Function?

Mar 4, 2013

So I've designed a data capture sheet that is full of control boxes including text boxes.

Following some googling I found this, it does exactly what I want (checks the date input to the box is a valid date and then formats it appropriately)

VB:
Private Sub TextBox7_LostFocus()
If IsDate(TextBox7.Text) Then
TextBox7.Text = Format(TextBox7.Text, "mm/dd/yyyy")

[Code].....

## Function For Number Formatting?

Apr 11, 2014

How do I use a function that gives me a number with the thousands separator and no decimals?

## Conditional Format With OR Function

Apr 12, 2013

I want to apply conditional formatting in a cell based on the contents of another cell. I can do it if I just want it based off 1 condition (=b151="sample") but would like to if it met 1 of a couple possibilities.

For example, cell H151 I would like to fill green if cell B151 contained the text "sample" or "example". B151 has a list box with about 10 possibilities but I only want a few of those to turn H151 green.

## Conditional Max Custom Function

Jul 10, 2009

I have a column of data with 2 possible values, "H" or "A". The second column contains numbers (unsorted).

How do I write the VBA code to return the Highest number, where the first column is 'H' ?

Eg.

Location Attendance
H 25365
A 17436
A 47252
H 15494
A 37578
H 17549
H 28756
A 59756

This would need to return 28756.

## Conditional IF Function/Formula

Sep 8, 2006

Is it possible to write a formula that will compare the text in two different cells? And if I can do this can I also have that formuls place a numeric value in another cell? An example of what I am trying to do is: If the text in C2 is equal to the text in C3 place a 1 in C4 or if the text in C2 is not equal to the text in C3 place a 0 in C4.

## Conditional Average Function

Aug 25, 2007

How do I perform average for a range and be able to exclude outliers. For example I am taking 100 measurements, some are not measureable and recorded as 9999.9. How do I average 100 values, but exclude all the 9999.9?

## Simple Conditional Addition Function

Mar 27, 2009

I imagine this is a simple conditional SUMIF function. I'd like a cell to add values in e.g. column "d" when that row meets certain criterion in column "a".

In other words, I have a column that has times recorded in minutes, and another that says a person's name which correlates with the times. I'd like a cell on another sheet to give a total sum of minutes for each person.

Ideally, part of the function would translate the minute count into hours/minutes, but I think I can figure out how to do that by changing the format in the cell...

## Conditional Formating Using Match Function

Nov 12, 2009

I am having many difficulties getting conditional formatting using the match function to work correctly in my excel document.

What I would like to accomplish is as follows in the 3Q09 tab. If a subdivision name is found in C-62 through C-70 and a match is found for the subdivision name in AB-24 to AB-66 I would like it so the AB-24 to AB-66 Subdivision name is bolded for every match. I removed the function formulas from the 3q09 tab I used to have since they didnt work and I do not want to confuse anyone.

This is correctly done on the "Working Correctly" Tab included in the same file, so please view this for clarification if you need it. Why it works on one tab and not the other simply baffles me.

## How To Make A Conditional Median Function?

May 9, 2006

for my thesis i need to create median industry multipliers. i have a list of
companies with their industry codes and multiples, but now i need to create a
list with medians per industry. is there a function similar to SUMIF for
medians?

## Product If Function For Conditional Range

Oct 30, 2013

Currently trying to calculate the cumulative performance for a range of months. For example, I have the below figures:

Jul-12
6.59%

Aug-12
1.13%

Sep-12
2.61%

Oct-12
-3.56%

[code].....

I want to create a product if function where if I'm looking back 6, 12, 18 months etc from a specified month (e.g. Sep 2013), it will calculate the product for the range of % (e.g. Apr-Sep for 6 months, Oct 12-Sep 13 for 12 months, etc...). I would imagine it will be =product(1+if(Column A range=6, Column B range))-1.

## IF(AND Function Using LOOKUP For Conditional Values

Dec 3, 2013

I'm new to excel and am attempting to use an IF(AND function that requires the use of two LOOKUP tables for the IF conditions, I have been unable so far to generate the answer I'm looking for.

I have a set of data in two columns, column A which has a series of dates from 1/09/2013 - 30/09/2013 (multiple for each date), and column F which has a series of 4 digit numbers (employee numbers). I also have two columns where I can enter in values for LOOKUP tables, one column for dates (O2:O4) and another for employee numbers (Q2:Q17).

What I am trying to achieve is a True/False answer in a final column for IF A2 = value from column (table) O2:O4, AND F2 = value from column (table) Q2:Q17. For the querry to be true the values in column A and column F must meet both conditions, be from a date in column O2:O4 and also be an employee from column Q2:Q17

=IF(AND(A2=LOOKUP(A2,O2:O4),F2=LOOKUP(F2,Q2:Q17),"Yes","No")

Currently I get a #NA error and I know its due to my formula not being anywhere near correct, as far as I can tell it's a result of the LOOKUP part of the formula I'm attempting to create, as it generates a #NA area when the data does not meet the criteria in the columns (tables), I have attempted to include a ISNA section to the formula to alter the result if the data does not meet the two conditions but when applied to the whole data set it only responds with a False answer even if the data meets both conditions.

## Function Of Addition With An Only Conditional Criterion

## Conditional Function/Formula Across Worksheets

May 1, 2006

I have 7 sheets named: joe, kelly, meg, nate, dave, tom, sam. To keep it simple, in cell B2 on each sheet there is either an "8" or it's blank. On an 8th sheet I'm trying to determine a formula to use that will display the person or persons if Cell B2=8. So if just meg's B2 has 8 and tom's B2 has 8; the formula would produce meg & tom.
