Change Row Colour When A Value Is Given In A Cell
I dont have that great knowledge in Excel but i wanted to try and run a
macro in an IF formula but realised that was not possible. I have now got a
formula that gives a value in a cell when i want the whole row to turn to
red, but im not sure how i can get a macro that will change the whole row to
red when that cell shows a value. Can anyone help on this matter?
Auto Change Row/font Colour And Move Row
Attached example sheet. Basic table of data, with column F being a validation list, is it possible that when choosing COMPLETE from the list, the row and font change colour, and then move to the top of the list?
I'm not the only simpleton using the sheet so I need it to be as simple as possible. I know it doesnt seem like a big thing but the sheet we are working from is huge and I dont want people cutting and pasting away, I just dont trust them with my spreadsheets.
Highlight Entire Row When Word Is In Cell
What I want to do is select all rows that contain the word conveyor in it. So far I have managed to select all the cells, I have also managed to select the entire row but one row at a time, I have even been able to turn all the cells a different color but I just want to highlight them for other formatting, copying, and several other things that need to be done. I have other documents this could be very useful in too so i want to make it a generic multi-line highlight rather than adding the formatting into the formula.
Color Row If Cell In Column Contains Specific Word
I've been trying to come up with a conditional that will format a row if a cell contains any instance of a given word.
I know the following will format rows containing the EXACT entry of "apple" in column E:
But I'd like a conditional that will find entries like "apple pie" and "crabapple" as well. I'm sure it's a simple solution, using a SEARCH function or something...but I can't figure it out.
Color Entire Row If Cell In Columns Contains Specific Word
how to format a row based on text that is in a certain column. For instance, if a cell in column B has text in it I need to format the entire rest of the row with a certain background color and text color. I've been searching around here for a while and I think I'm really close, but I just can't seem to nail it down. Here's the code that I've worked on so far.
Dim c3 As Range
Set SrchRng3 = ActiveSheet.Range("B1", ActiveSheet.Range("B65536").End(xlUp))
Set c3 = SrchRng3.Find("Europe - *", LookIn:=xlValues)
Row Will Be Inserted Above The Row With The Word "end"
when you run the macro AND when the word "end" is in any cell in column A then the following two things will automatically occur.
1. A row will be inserted above the row with the word "end", and
2. The formula in the "above row" in column B (right cell and above to cell with "End" word in it) will be dragged down into the new column.
What I want are the formulas in all the cells in the "above row" to be dragged down into the new row - not just column B.
Dim lInsertRow As Long
lInsertRow = Columns("A:A").Find(What:="end", After:=Range("A1"), LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
Range("B" & lInsertRow - 1).Select
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("B" & lInsertRow - 1 & ":B" & lInsertRow), Type:=xlFillDefault
Range("B" & lInsertRow).Select
Change Reference Cell From Column To Row
I am using this formula
It looks for the sheet based on A5
It finds the max number from the sheet in Column D
This is what i would like to do please....
On this found sheet - Column A has dates in this format yyyy.mm.dd
I would like to enter a date in a cell (say for example AA5 on main sheet)
Can the formula above be adapted to:

Change Row Based On Cell Update
I`m trying to work out the best way to propogate a cell's format accross an entire range. What I ultimately want is for a user to only have to change the text colour of one cell, and for the entire row to immediately change to the same colour with it. Even if this means always having to update for example the cell in column A to change the text colour accross that row.
Change Color Of Row When Cell Is Selected
I have a spreadsheet containing many rows of data that I need people to review. After reviewing the data in the column, a reviewer must enter comments in the right-most column and then hit the Enter key to move to the next row down.
What I'd like to happen -- As a reviewer selects the cell where they need to enter data, I want the entire row to highlight. I can use conditional formatting to change the color of the row once data is entered, but I want to change the color of the row when a specific cell is selected. I've attached a sample spreadsheet.
Match Amount And Colour Row
I am trying to match by amount with 1 column to another in a different sheet. If Data in column A in worksheet 1 matches data in column b worksheet 2 then color the entire row in column A worksheet 1 red, I am matching by amount so it(amount in column a) can be within 1 $ of amount in column b worksheet 2 also color item in column b(worsksheet2) red if matches with column a in worksheet 1 both can have a threshold of 1$ difference
Change The Row Colors Contigent Upon Cell Values
I know this can be done, as I have seen it before, but can't seem to figure out how to replicate it.
I have a speadsheet in which I have a drop-down box for a certain column's values. How do I automatically have each independent row's background color change dependant upon the value selected in that row's drop-down cell box (and update color automatically if a different drop-down selection is made later)?
Row 1: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "Yes"...change row color to GREEN
Row 2: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "No"...change row color to RED
Row 3: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "Maybe"...change row color to YELLOW
Conditional Formatting - Colour A Whole Row Of Data
I am trying to colour a whole row of data (in columns A through to AA) based on the numeric entry in column AB. The numeric entry is either 1, 2 or 3. I reckoned I needed to use the IF function, but as writing formula is not my strong point I am struggling to enter the correct data! The first row of data I wish to use is 3. I have tried the following but to no avail: =IF($AB3,1). =IF($AB3=1). =IF($AB3="1").
Colour Row To Denote It's Use In Autofilter
I am using autofilter and then copying some cells from the rows that are selected as a result and pasting them to another worksheet within the workbook. My problem is that in the worksheet that contains the autofilter I need to colour (or index?) the row that I am copying to show that it has been used. I tried UsedRange but got in a muddle.
Change Cell To Any Month And Recognize If Any Cell In Row
Column A = Row Description
Column B = Control value
Columns C-V = Time in Months
Row 1 = Months
Row 2 = Initial Values to find if >0
Cell B4 = Assumption of 18 months
Cell B6 = Value of 250 to insert if TRUE
In Cell C2 (January) I have a value that is 12
For example purposes I have an If formula in T3 (which is 18 months in the future. The formula is: =IF(C$2>0, $B$6,0). The result should be 250.
What I am looking for is a formula that will allow me to change Cell B4 to any month I want and still recognize if any cell in Row 2 is >0 then 250 (B6). All of row 3 should be filled with the same formula.
This could be a match if >0 then edate to column that has value >0, at 18 (B4) periods out.
Auto Change Row Color After Cell Data Input
Not sure if this is possible or if I would need to run a VB macro. image multiple columns with text headers.
'A'=Project Number 'B'= Date 'C'=Description etc etc etc 'S'=Cancelled (i actually use up to 'Z' on the columns for various other data)
I have added a Conditional Format on the cells in column 'S' that if the cell data = Y then colour the cell RED. This at first glance will show that the project has been cancelled. What I would like it to do is to colour the complete row (shaded grey for example) this would then show up more easily with the amount of data that is on my sheet.
Conditional Formatting: If A Cell Value In Column X Contains The Word "open", Format Row Background To Yellow
I need to set up some conditional formatting on my spreadsheet, however I am having a little trouble with one of my conditions. The requirement is:
- if a cell value in column X contains the word "open", format row background to yellow.
- if a cell value in column X contains the word "resolved", format row background to green.
- if a cell value in column X contains the word "moved" OR "closed", format row background to blue.
Now I have manged the first two on my own, using the conditional formatting tool and using the formula "=SEARCH("open",INDIRECT("X"&ROW()))".
However I am stuck on the last one. I tried...
However this doesnt work. I tried looking at adding VB script in but to be honest I am not a VB programmer and cant really spend too much time on this. fix the final conditional format so it run if the cell contains either "resolved" or "closed"?

Using VBA To Select A Row And Colour Code It Based On Conditions
I've had a look through the forum and can't see an answer, so apologies if I'm duplicating something!
I have a spreadsheet where column O has five conditions:
1 PO in
2 High Probability
3 Medium Probability
4 Low Probability
I need to colour code the whole row based on the value in the cells; if there were four conditions, I could do this with conditional formatting, but with five (with white as the fifth condition), I need to look at VBA.
However, I'm having difficulty colouring the whole row; how do I do this?
e.g. what I need to do is:
If O2 = "1 PO in"; Select A2:T2; Colour green
In addition, I need to ensure that if there is no data in column D, but column O is "1 PO in", it is highlighted in a separate colour. I have a macro for that, but don't know whether in needs to be put into the code before or after the macro needed above...
Change Cell Colour On Delete
I would like to have the colour of a cell change within a spreadsheet anytime that a change has been made. I have used the worksheet_change function to change any text that has changed in a cell, however I would like to have the actual cell colour change if someone deletes anything from that cell. I figured that I could use the worksheet_change function for that as well however it is not working.
Change Cell Colour When Clicked
I've found a great thread that answered part of my problem (Change colour of text on update of cell)
This code changes the colour of a cell when selected. With the application I'm trying to make I need this effect to only occur in a certain area say A10:D30
I'm trying to make a scheduling page that uses timebars to represent when people are working. I though if a user could click or highlight the hours and a time bar produced I could lookup to see what hour the timebar starts and ends and show the hours worked. I also need it to cycle through 5 different colours before returning to white.

Change The BG Colour Of A Cell When Selected
I have 5 cells in the same row (C20:G20)
When i click on one of them i want it to either change the background of the selected cell or the background of the cell below it.
EG if i click on C20 either C20 or D20 the highlight black and change the text colour to white, or just change the background to grey.
i thought it might be something like Target.Offset(1, 0).BGColor = 6
i tried this>
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells = C20 Then
Target.Offset(1, 0).BGColor = 6

How To Change A Cell Colour Depending An A Different Cells Value
How to a change a cell colour to say red in B6 if cell b12 = 1 and if e6 = 1 to change to green. I thought I might be able to use conditional formatiing but no. I had set the spread sheet to do a cell just for a condition representing a sum from another worksheet and it was working fine but i have to incorporate the two together and am stock.
I have attached a spread sheet.
Change Colour In A Cell - Conditional Formatting
I want to change the colour in a cell depending on the sum of two other cells.
So i want if
A3+B3>2 THEN C3 TO HAVE GREEN COLOUR
A4+B4>2 THEN C4 TO HAVE GREEN COLOUR
A5+B5>2 THEN C5 TO HAVE GREEN COLOUR
A6+B6>2 THEN C6 TO HAVE GREEN COLOUR
SO IN THE END ONLY C4 AND C6 WILL HAVE GREEN COLOUR.
Is there any formula to do so with conditional formatting?

What I want to do is have it so that if you type "apples I want some", the cell changes colour to green, and also the apples doesnt appear in the cell. So when you press enter, all you will see is a green cell that says "I want some"
I was wondering if there was a way in VB within the worksheet to make this happen?
