Selecting Cell A2 Will Highlight/change Font In Cell A1
Jun 18, 2006
How can I change the font color or highlight cell A1, when I select cell A2. Cell A2 is still blank, no value entered yet. I also would like cell A1 to return to original font color or no hightlight when cell A2 is no longer selected (active), whether a value is entered or not in cell A2. Let me clearify, (A1 thru N1) and (A3 thru N3) have diferent dates and the font color is white, as is the cell too. Therefor you can not see the dates in (A1 thru N1) or (A3 thru N3).
However, when any cell (A2 thru N2) or (A4 thru N4) is selected (example A4), the cell above it (cell A3) changes font color or highlights, so the date can be seen in (A3). But when cell (A4) is no longer selected the above cell (A3) hides the date (changes back to white font on white cell). Data or a value is not necessarily entered into (A4) for (A3) to change. (A4) is only selected to show the date in (A3). But if data or value is entered into (A4), the date in (A3) will still be seen until (A4) is no longer selected/active.
I am using this formula (Below) and it is working great. Only problem is that I want the client name to be be bold and font size 12, then I want it to highlight in Red. I also want the rows in colunm L to highlight in bright green.
Sub InputData() Dim varUserInput As Variant Dim LastRow As Integer
This appears to be so simple, I've searched the forums and have found almost the right VB code but not quite. I have a 3000 row spreadsheet with various columns. Column M can either be PASS, FAIL, REJECTED, IN PROGRESS or NOT ASSESSED. I need the rows (A to M inclusive) to change colour and text colour dependent on this condition.
I almost had an answer with Select.Case but I couldn't get the formula to work with text, only numbers.
I have a workbook that includes a drop down list with three options. One of the options is "TA". The default font type for these cells is "Wingdings" but when "TA" is chosen I want the Font Type to change to "Arial".
I have some code that runs through about 5000 rows of data looking at duplicates for column A. instead of deleting the duplicate rows, i change the font.colorindex of the cell in column a so that all cells containing xx are one color, and all cells containing xxx are colorindex+1.
Since i have about 5000 rows, colorindex limits itself to 122 (i msgbox'd each time and this is the last number i got before the subscript out of range).
Is there anyway around this, or is there a better way to pickout duplicates. remember, i can't delete duplicates, i need a way to manipulate the duplicates data once i pick them out.
I have a database which I want to send to my peers. I want to set a rule which will enable me to keep track of the data which are changed. For instance, in a cell if someone edit that number, the color will change from black to red.
I would like to know if there is a way to change the font type in a cell, if a condition is true in another cell. e.g font in cell C3 is Arial Rounded MT Bold and if condition is true in cell F3 then font is changed to Arial Narrow.
I am trying to set up conditional formatting in cell C4 to change the font to a smaller number based on the value of C4. If C4 = 0 then Font Calibri 16, otherwise Font Calibri 24. However, the font size is not availabe, it is greyed out. Is there another way to accomplish this without using VBA? In the worksheet could I use an if() statement to change the font size?
I have a spreadsheet that contains the 5 digit numbers in the rows and the columns respecstively. I'd like a formular or macro to change font color for each cell. If the combined value of the 5 rows are greater or less than the combined range 87030 and 87200, the 5 cells will be changed to Red. If:.........
if a macro or private macro is necessary, I would need basic instruction how to use those as well (I mentioned private macro as I understand they automatically run whenever worksheet info is changed, which I would like in this example.)
I'm simply trying to change fonts in cells based on the inputs of other cells. Obviously, using conditional formatting doesn't allow for this.
For my example, assume the word "MrExcel" is in cells D2, F2, H2, J2, L2, N2, P2 and R2. If I type different font names (Times New Roman, Arial, Bookman, etc.) in the cells to the immediate right of each word "MrExcel," -- cells E2, G2, I2, K2, M2, O2, Q2 and S2 -- I would like the "MrExcel" word in each corresponding cell changed to the corresponding font to the right. I would like the ability to do this for up to 15 different fonts. There will be many rows to this worksheet I need to use this process for.
Is this possible? I'm in a bit of a jam and have exhausted my knowledge of formulas in that they won't work in this case ... I'm assuming I need to delve into the unknown land (to me) of macros, private macros, or VBA.
I'm trying to have a macro run to search a specific column (S) for a particular text value "y" and if true it will change the font to bold and the color to red for the entire row of the cell that contains the "y". the column is part of a data table that is constantly refreshed not sure if that makes a difference or not.
Via conditional formatting, I am searching to change the color of a specific word in a cell (not the color of everything in the cell, but only that specific word - and the word repeats in the cell). A function such as =isnumber(search("NOK";A1)) colors all the cell values, which I do not want to do. How i can perform this task?
I am working on a spreadsheet for work, and have managed to do everything I need to so far but I need to colour specific letter strings, certain colours within a range of cells (each letter string will only appear once on each sheet)
The strings I will be looking for vary depending on data entered so I will need to cell reference them
The strings that need colouring are in cells with other strings that must stay black (They cannot be separated from other strings due to the nature of the grid)
I need some strings red, some green, and some blue.
These changes should also apply to the whole workbook not just one sheet.
I need to conduct keyword searches in excel and color the keywords a different color without changing the font color of the entire cell. now, i found some code from another thread that does this, but i cant seem to get it to work with more than 2 keywords. i need fine-tuning the provided code to do what i need it to do.
the VBA code i used was this:
I was playing around with the example, the Cat_Mouse.xlsm, and when i modified the 'myList' and 'myColor' arrays, it does not work.
For example, I modified the code to add the word bat:
When i run the macros, the word "Bat" does not become colored red. interestingly enough, when i substitute the word "bat" for the word "hat" in the "myLIST array, the word "hat" does change to the red font.
I am looking to use this code to address keywords in my excel file by coloring all key words red and i have more than 10 key words.
I have two columns. The first one (A) contains cells that have different Fill colors. The second column (B) contains text adjacent to the colored cells. I am trying to change the color of the text in the second column (B) to the corresponding color in the adjacent cell in the first column (A). I don't think conditional formating works well in this situation. I believe the solution would be some sort of macro.
I have font color white in blank cells in column E and I (from row 5 to row 245) so the visitors will not see the text. If any of these cells become yellow (color code is 6), the font color will become black so visitors can see the text alot far better than white. I've tried this code myself after this post but nothing happen
i am use exl2000 and i made a workbook with password protection. 2 sheets are in this workbook. one sheet is password protected and second is not protected. i want to change the cell color and font color (Cell is locked) in protected sheet. i want to give only content protection and user cannot delete the text but he will change the color of text.
I have a form that loads and depending on the word selected in the drop down the following code loops through cells Q2:AC2 until it finds the word in one of those cells (the word will always be in one of the cells)
Code: For Each c In Range("Q2:AC2").Cells If c = period Then c.Select
The active cell it finds will always change, i know I need something to code the active cell back but I don't know what it should be.
I have an index of 80,000 names from an index. Some names appear in multiple volumes and on multiple pages within a volume. While the name is the same, they are different people. The Roman numeral is the volume and the numeric is the page number.
Example of original data: Joe Shmoe V-225, 310 VIII-22, 86, 110
I have separated the data into separate columns. Now I have:
Col 1 Col 2 Col 3 Col 4 Col 5 Col 6 Joe Shmoe V-225 310 VIII-22 86 110
At this point, I want to combine the Roman numeral in Col 2 with Col 3 and 4 and combine the Roman numeral in Col 4 with Col 5 and 6.
There are way too many records for me to manually enter the Roman numeral where missing.
