I have a column in a sheet referencing data from a column in another sheet in my workbook. I want to apply conditional formatting on these numeric values, from red for lowest vals to green for highest. However the fact that my column is referencing cells that will not yet have data means that they are being pulled over as 0. I am not displaying zero values in cells but the zero vals are still being included in the conditional format. Is there any way to discount these zero vals?
I recorded a macro in which I applied a conditional format to a range (the selection).But, when i replay this macro, the conditional format is only applied to the first cell in the range. This can be seen in the "Manage Rules" dialog of Conditional formatting, where the "applies to" column shows only one cell, even though a range of cells was selected by the code.
I set a breakpoint at the first line of code here, and confirmed that the selection is correct, and indeed it is, as in the immediate window, ?Selection.Address correctly gives "$O$6:$O$21".
I would like to fill in the same conditional format down to 51 other rows but the formatting for each row should be based on the contents of its own cell i.e. $D$3, $D$4, $D$5 etc. How can I do this with code?
I was wondering if is possible to apply a conditional format rule to a range of cells only when certain other cells outside of the range are the active cells. eg row C4-J4 has a conditional format to identify duplicates from range C5-C10, but I also want the same conditional rule to apply separately and uniquely if the active cell falls within the next active range D5-D10. So basically only apply conditional formatting separately and uniquely as the active cell moves its way across the columns?
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 have a column filled with time data that I want to copy in to a column formatted to a time format (hh:mm:ss), the thing is when i copy the data to it the format does not apply unless i double click each of the brackets, there are 14000 lines so doing it manually is a hastle to say the least, is there a way to apply the time format immediately?
I am trying to use the status of Conditional Formatting to toggle on/off protection for a cell.
I have a cell with Conditional Formatting applied if the result of a formula is true. If the Conditional Formatting is applied, I want the cell protection turned on so a user can not change the entry in the cell. If Conditional Formatting is not applied (false), cell protection is turned off and the user may edit.
I am trying to create a macro (which will go in an add-in, using Excel 2007) which will apply a custom format to any selected cells which have their formulae hidden (Format Cells, Protection, Hidden). A similar macro works fine for locked cells.
Here is the UDF I wrote, which returns True/False based on the Hidden status of a cell:
VB: Public Function Hidden(Check_Cell As Range) Hidden = Check_Cell.FormulaHidden = True End Function
just place all three pieces of code into a module, and change the first line of the two macros to a standard "Sub Macro1()" type format.
I have a workbook that contains 168 sheets of data (it's an extract from a PM tool) which is effectively a status report from each project in our portfolio. Contained within each status report are some financial data that shows a Plan number and a Forecast number for which I want to apply conditional formatting to this section (this is the same section for each sheet), to all the 168 sheets without having to go individually into each sheet. I have searched here and all the varying responses to a similar situation as mine, do not cater for the number of sheets that I have. And I need to do this on a monthly basis at monthend. So in the example below I want to apply conditional formatting if the Forecast (Cols D & G) are greater than Plan (Cols B & E). Is there a way of doing this just with the conditional formatting or would it need a VBA script?
Col A Col B Col C Col D Col E Col F Col G Financial Summary - Selected Project Currency: USD
My conditional formatting code works fine for one column; however, when I try to apply the conditional formatting to two columns, the code only applies to the first column listed. Additionally, I have two sets of "rules" that apply to the same column. One of the "rules" includes two columns. The other rule applies to only one column. I'm not sure if this is my issue, or whether I'm trying to apply the same code to two different columns.
I'm trying to find a macro to apply conditional formatting to a large number of cells,
What I would like to do is when cell E96 has a value of a, cells E3:F95 are shaded in grey. Then when cell G96 has a value of a, cells G3:H96 are shaded in grey, and so on down to IU96 having a value of a and cells IU3:IV96 shaded in grey.
I have used VBA to apply conditional formating to a range of cells. i.e if cell B14 <>"" then row 14 is pale blue untill cell V14 is populated with the time then it removes the formating. One criteria is that if Q14(21/08/06 20:00)>NOW(AA2) and < NOW+1(AA3) then Row turns green(i.e. is due in the next 24 hrs).
Problem is that this formula is applied after a field is updated. When 21/08/06 20:00 comes and goes the row remains green unless I update one of the fields along that row. What would I have to do to make the formating change back automatically when the critera is no longer being met. Here is my codethere are 2 other if statements similar to this with in this code but this is the only part that shouldn't require any user input for the formatting to occour)

I have created an excel file that contains a lot of worksheets which contain a lot of raw data and charts. There are 5 different tabs for 5 different companies. Each tab currently contains only 1 year of raw data for that company. Then I have another excel worksheet that has nothing but charts on it. Each chart is a bar chart that shows each of the 5 companies. It also shows the current rate for the month for each company and the 12 month average for each company. On the chart there are also 3 lines. There is a standard line that we try to meet each month. There is also a line for the upper control limit and a line for the lower control limit. Here is my problem:
The 2 bar charts (current rate for the month & the 12 month average) are created and updated by the raw data in each of the 5 data sheets.
Based upon the values in each of the cells that create and update the bars on the charts themselves: I want the bars to be RED if the values are below the lower control limit.
And I want the bars to be GOLD if the values are above the upper control limit.
And I want the bars to be green if the values are in between the upper and lower control limits.
I have a column (A) where there's a date in each cell. Currently it is formatted as category "text". All entries where initially entered as 'yymmdd', but using category "number". Beacause of that all zeros in the year disappeared, so now they are shown as "ymmdd".
Can someone show me/tell me how to convert all these dates from category "text", to category "date", using format "yymmdd"? I have tried again and again and again, but can't make it work. I have attached a sample of the sheet.
Column b in sample is conditionally formatted based on it's values. I want to also apply that same formatting to the person's name in the chart in D2:I9. For example, Jeff is in bottom 50% so cell B2 is shaded red with red text. I would like to apply that same red shade and red text to all the cells in my chart that say Jeff. Also, as example, all of the cells in my chart that say Kelsey would be formatted with green shade/green text and so on...
I have a spreadsheet and I want to color particular cells in a column with a new color - i.e. any new changes need to be highlighted. I know there's a way to do tracking changes in excel, but it just sticks a little flag almost invisibly in the corner of the cell. I want to be able to bring the spreadsheet back to our administrator and say hey the stuff in red is new.
On a related note - I am working on this massive spreadsheet that is a .csv but I am saving it as an exel spreadsheet - is that ok? I am assuming that if I save it as a csv, it will return to the original formatting just without the colors, filters, etc changes I made - which is fine because I think somehow the .csv file will be uploaded to the system and no further changes need to be made.
I found out the hard way when you have a .csv file and make changes and then save it, you lose all the fun row/column size adjustments, color, etc - but I figure in the meantime I'll work on it as a excel spreadsheet and then return it to it's natural .csv file status.
I would like to create a VBA macro which would do the following:
There will be three columns A, B, and C. Each cell in each column will have a number with two places after the decimal. Each integer corresponds to a letter code. In the fourth column (D), I would like the letter codes from the corresponding three numbers in the same row to be combined in one cell as follows (if possible):
It is important that the macro only pay attention to the whole number, and ignore the numbers after the decimal. However, the numbers after the decimal must remain in the chart.
I've used Conditional format before and up to now never had a problem with it. I would like that if a cell ends with a number it turns (eg) yellow. So Hallo1 remains colourless, but in the case of Hallo2 the cell turns yellow. I have tried (in the active cell A20) Right(a20,1)>1 (with the setting hasFormula) and =Right(a20,1)>1, both without the desired result.
I'm working on a report right now that I would like to identify incorrect phone numbers. So I'm looking to use the LEN function to identify and highlight any phone number that is incomplete (like missing area code). But I also don't want it to highlight if there is an "N/A" in the cell.
So I was using =LEN(A1:A100)<10 since 10 digits would be a complete phone number). But I don't know how to manipulate it to be if the cell is greater than 3, but less than 10.
Cell D8 contains many different account codes. When entering into this sheet, if D8 is filled using account code 4010.12, 4010.17, or 1190.1000, then I want Cell J8 to turn a different color, flagging that cell so they know they have to fill that cell in J8, otherwise that cell will remain blank.
