Within the Workbook events there is a "Before_Print", however I also need something like "After_Print" which does not exist (as far as I can tell).
I have several rows of data which alternate colors. When I print it I want to take out the fill (so as to save ink) - which I can do in the "Before_Print" event. [No problem.] However, once it is done printing I need to restore the alternating colors, but I cannot think of any event or trigger which would enable this.
I have thought through several things and the closest thing I can think of is setting up a timer. But there is of course no way to now how long to set it for. [Before/After Save also has the same "issue".]
I have a sheet with alternating colors (gray,white) for the rows. This makes it easier to read each individual rows data, just like some printer papers. The problem i have is when i sort the data it takes the background color with it and i end up with a mess. does anyone know how to get around this.
My pallet lost color-coding - if I hover over each little scare it displays the names for the colors and if I click on them they color the cells with the right colors, but the palette itself lost the visual display of colors except for 8 colors: black, blue, red, magenta, yellow, cyan, and white.
I use color-coding of cells a lot and I find it difficult to work without visual clues. At least the hover-support allows me to get the work done, but with difficulty.
I am trying to come up with a way to print out data that is variable in the amount of rows to print.
1. Cells C1 thru M6 is heading of report 2. Cells C7 thru M400 all have formulas and display information only when criteria in Column C in each row is met, if condition is not met it displays no informtion. (There lies my problem).
I need a way to print out only the area that information is displayed in and skip the areas that are not displayed. (Currently I have hard coded the print range using the largest report)
I've found some code which works to print certain pages with value in cell A1 but I need to print dynamic ranges on some of the sheets as they will have filters on so the rows ranges will be different each time.
So far this is what I have but the dynamic range part is not working:
VB: Sub Print_All_Worksheets_With_Value_In_A1() Dim Sh As Worksheet Dim Arr() As String Dim N As Integer
i have a file which consist of sheets called june 2007, color, and report. When i click on the command button on sheet june 2007 the code works and copies some data into sheet called report in that case some of them white color copied over and some of them blue.
Since at the actual file there are nearly 500 rows and 32 columns when the report works, i want to sort each colors individually by looking the values at column called ETA (column "E")
white rows should be sorted in ascending order in column e wise blue rows also should be sorted in ascending order in column e wise each colors should be sorted individually
How can i link colors used in charts to companies i have i my database. Now excel provides colors in a certain sequence but this is not what i want. I attached a file in which i for example wants to create pie charts of the company's sales. What do i have to do to give each company its own color?
I am in the process of reformatting an excel workbook to act as a review tool for different factors in a process. Part of my redesign includes the use of coding that creates different cell colors based upon the cell contents. The new workbooks will be used to handle existing data for this year. I have developed a process macro to open an existing workbook and copy and transfer the original data worksheet into the newly formatted workbook. The data gets transferred to the new worksheet and the resulting workbook is renamed and saved, Heres'' the rub... the newly saved workbook is missing all of the coding for the worksheets... apparently this is a MS bug.
Has anyone figured a workaround for this. One thought I had is to open both( new and old )workbooks and rather than move/copy , i would transfer the data using cell references.
I'm trying to create a formula that can display colors based on the strength of the margin of victory of a candidate, take these two examples for instance.
County Frank Cole Dean Total MOV MOV%
I want to be able to draw in the outline of these counties (or at least the cell proceeding the MOV%) displaying the color that corresponds with the winner of that county. The added twist would be to shade the color depending on the Margin of Victory (MOV) as well. The closer the vote, the lighter (or mixed?) the cell (or county) would be. If it could be at all possible I would really be cool to mix both colors so that a result 100% for one candidate would get a color 100% pure while a 17% MOV would get a color 17% more of the winning candidate than of the loser (or losers) colors. I don't think a VBA is necessary for this one.
I have a tab with different city names and then a a series of answers to a number of different questions, what I need to do is create a macro which looks a table on a different tab, and if column b matches any of the words in the table to then print that entire row of answers.
So if the information found in R1!M3:M21 is found in Results!B:B then print that row to sheet R1. If the information found in R2!M3:M22 is found in Results!B:B then print to sheet R2 etc.
This is the only other way I could describe it, however I don't think it can be done as a formula anyway (even though it is somewhat gibberish)
IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(R1!M3:M21,Results!B:B))print the row,move onto next row)
Is it possible to create a command button to print the sheet, and, have a prompt come up and ask you to enter a date? Then that date is entered in a cell and the sheet prints? Just not sure where to start. I know how to make the command button and get to the view code for the button.
Trying to format cells b9 through b 24 and cells c9 through c24 to change from white to a light grey color by clicking the mouse button once. so one click white, another click grey. The color grey I need is white, background 1, darker 25% in the autofill field in excel. I have search other forums they all lead to changing the code, I did this already. just copy pasted a code I found but all cells were selected to change a bright green.
I am making some grids which will have a series of numbers in the individual cells. But I can't figure out how to change the colors of the digits. If I change one digit to Red; all the numbers in that cell change to Red. Whereas I would like to have them as Red,Green,Black,Blue,etc.
I have read the instructions for conditional formatting and I don't think that is what I need. I have 10 diff year 2005,06,07 etc. I want each cell with with a diff year to turn a diff color. Like I want 2005 to be red and 2008 to be blue.
I'm trying to have change if the date on it is passed "now()". I am already using the 3 conditional formatting fields and need this one and another one. Here are 2 problems I seem to be having.
First - the code below only works if I change the date on the cell. I want code to either work with Worksheet Active or any other way so the user does not have to redo the date’s everyday. Second - a record might have conditional formatting already. Is it possible for the target cell in this code can show this color while the rest of the row shows the color of the conditional formatting?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer If Not Intersect(Target, Range("G1:G2000")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case Is <= Now() icolor = 39
I need to change the color of a specific cell when conditions are met in a different cell and it seems like it may be beyond the scope of simply applying conditional formatting. What vba code would look like in proper syntax to make the following statement true. IF cell value Q4 is >=cell value S4 AND cell value R4 is <100 Then cell Q4 turns red and IF cell value Q4 is >= cell value S4 AND cell value R4 =100 then cell Q4 turns green. it may also be useful to know that the "cell values" in this example will be dates and not straight values. this may be possible to do using conditional formatting, but i cannot find a formula that works.
when I copy a worksheet from one workbook to another, the colors on the sheet in the destination workbook, become dull/faded. They actually change from the original colors to some off colors. I copy by selecting the source sheet, hold down ctrl key, then drag from one workbook to another). Also, is there a way to get the sheet back to the original colors.
We have a workbook with over 20 worksheets, each sheet with one or more tables in it. Several people use the workbook and we have decided that when someone changes a cell, they should mark the changed cell by filling it with blue using Format Cell. We have then nominated one person at end of each week who will check all the changes made during the week and either approve or reject them. So her task is to find all the blue cells, check them and then take the shading off.
What I would like to do is to create a macro to help her. I would like the macro to automatically identify all the blue cells in the workbook and give her a list of these cells. I wonder if someone could give me direction on a couple of things:
1) The command in the macro that would return whether a cell is shaded blue
2) The way in which I could cycle through all the content of each worksheet. I'm thinking worse case I would have to write instructions to go to each sheet, and then do an outer loop to go through each row, and an inner loop for each column (and the number of active cells varies by worksheet) -
i am using a set of VB codes that was kindly provided by "dr". Please refer to the link below.
Highlight-Select Start Date To End Date
However, I am facing problems on how to delete or unfill the cells that are "coloured and filled with booking reference name" (i.e. being booked by the user).
In another words, currently, once a booking is made, the blank slots would be coloured to red and would reflect the customer name in those slots (with the use of dr's VB codes).
Comes the next day, if that booking needs to be cancelled, would the user be able to "delete" that booking that was made (i.e. uncolour that slot plus remove the customer name) without having to automatically go unfill the cells and delete the text in the cells?
I am trying to write a macro that can copy the shading from another cell for me automatically. I would like to look for certain text strings within a serial number, and when found, copy that cell's shading in another cell.
I am using INDEX, MATCH to copy the corresponding value needed, but that doesn't give me the shading...
