I have ammended the colours to 4 colours that I need for a risk assessment tool . I have added a second worksheet and put a dummy sample of my table there. Can you help me with how to put two colums of conditional formatting in the sheet? The risk rating before and that after the risk treatment? Many thanks in anticipation. I have highlighted in yellow the columns where the product of the consequence and likelihood is likely to be and this is where the colour coding needs to be applied. if you can help with putting the solution in the spread sheet that would be a great help. Any reply via this forum or via my email would be greatly appreciated.
I am new and I hope I have not made a mistake in starting a new thread. Sorry if I have but I wanted to bring this up as a new post so I get a sooner response.
This question about conditional formatting appears to be easy. Lets say I have a column like the following, like I posted somewhere else: (not very relevant for this)
BGW 3UG WWU 1BR UUBRG WUBRG 7UUGGRRR
How do I have all characters in this column be coloured accordingly to:
W = WHITE U = BLUE B = BLACK R = RED G = GREEN
So that 7UUGGRRR would automatically switch to: 7UUGGRRR
What I already tried:
- I applied conditional formatting to the column (actually, the cells interval, [C2..C8]) creating the rule: 'format only cells that contain -> specific text' -> then I added "U" as the text and told it to colour blue. As I predicted, this didn't work; the entire cell containing a single "U" will get blue, which is unwanted.
As far as I can tell Conditional Formatting will not work for this problem.
What I need now is some code to colour the rows in the data sheet ("Standards_Data"), so some other code (which is working fine) can then colour data points on a multiple graphs (which will be on the "Graphs" sheet). I've played around with as much code as I can find but nothing has the flexibility that I need or doesn't seem to work at all.
The idea is that users can adjust the colours using the Column A on the "Graphs" sheet to best highlight certain things. Also this list could then be edited as old Standard ID's become redundant and new ones come on line.
So in a nutshell: Colour rows in "Standard_Data" based on value of Standard ID (Column 4) according to the corresponding colour found in the list in the "Graphs" sheet.
I've attached a trimmed down version of the workbook.
I'm trying to create a dashboard with traffic lights displaying the status of a task. My manager wants a to be able to pick a color (Red, Yellow, Green) from a drop down menu and then have that be displayed as a red, yellow or green traffic light. Using the conditional formatting option, I'm only able to use numerical values or a formula. I'm hoping there's a way to either create a drop down list with the 3 different colored traffic lights or a way to use VBA to have the conditional formatting search by text instead of numbers.
I am wanting to have conditional formats so the cell fill in a range on sheet 1 will change to:
- red if the value of a cell on a seperate sheet (date) is greater than 18 months old - yellow if the value of a cell on a seperate sheet is 'In progress' - green if the value of a cell on a seperate sheet (date) is less than 18 months old
My Request is in Two Parts. Firstly, I would like to be able to List ALL the Colours Numbers in One Column & the Corresponding Colours Next to them Please in a Sheet Named "Summary" & Starting in Cell T3.
Secondly, I would like to Count How Many Cells in a Range on a Sheet Named "Network Points" and in Cells F4:Q179 has a Particular Colour Please. I would like the Totals to go on the Sheet Named "Summary" Starting in Cell W3.
I would like to change the colour of a userform both the background colour and the font colour. However, in the colour property box I am met with &H00C0C0C0& (which is Grey). I can select some other colours but not the one I would like to use.
I have tried inserting RGB(194,214,154) however I get the error 'Invaild proprty value'
i am creating a spreadsheet to account for work being done on a team. At the moment the sheet adds up the average time that the whole team is taking to do a task,and it also adds up the time each person is taking.
so for instance: KL take 100 minutes to do the task. but the average time across the team is 90 minutes per task. i have my list of staff with their times in column E. so what i want is if their time is higher than the average then the box turns red, if it is lower then green etc. (the average figure is got by summing everyones totals in box B22.
I currently have the following macro which checks the cell contents and replaces a random number in a sheet (say Sheet1) with a name in another sheet (called 'Pool') making sure the names' font colour is the same. So for example in sheet1, cell A1 contains the number 1 - the macro looks at cell A1 in the 'Pool' sheet (in which cells A1 to A30 always contain the numbers 1 to 30) and replaces the number 1 in Sheet1 with the name in cell D1 including the same font colour. Basically, it is replacing numbers in one sheet with names on another.
For a particular requirement I want to utilise the colours. ANd therefore I need to know, how many colours are present in the Colour Palette in both 2003 and 2007 and which colours would be same if I make the File in 2007?
Attached is a table detailing top 20 Incidents and Requests. Requests are highlighted in Yellow and Incidents are in Green. Associated with this table is a graph. What I like to do is if the bar on the graph represents a Request I want the colour to be yellow and if the bar represents an Incident I want it to be green. At the moment I can only choice one colour or a different colour for each bar.
I am in charge of a report spreadsheet which gets updated by my users multiple times a day. The spreadsheet is called the R-A-G report (red, amber, green). One of the columns has colours which are updated manually in accordance to the ammount of stock we have in the database (oracle column) and in our warehouse (utl column).
Right now the users update these colours manually, using a key at the bottom of the spreadsheet. My dream is to have these colours auto-updating when a macro is run.
I spent a little time and wrote a very basic macro, but there are a few problems with it. For one i do not think that the macro fills out of the possible variables; therefor it has around 50% accuracy.
I have uploaded the file and would really appreciate if i could get some feedback on how i could write this correctly, maybe some usefull websites specifically directed at elseif (if that is the correct code for me to use).
if the date is two months under the date it needs to be checked it goes yellow if its over two months before it needs checked it goes green if its passed the date it needs to be checked by it turns red
I have a vertical list where every other cell is coloured grey. The values contained in the list are regularly sorted into alphabetical order with new values being added and other being removed.
Is there a way to keep the cells alternate grey & white after I have sorted them? Currently, when I sort, if a cell is coloured grey and is moved down one cell the colour is moved and not just the values.
I have a conditional formula which gives a value based on what the User specifies.
Example of formula is:
=IF($B$1=0,"CONTACT PERSON - OPTIONAL",IF($B$1=5,"CONTACT PERSON (FINANCE ONLY) - MANDATORY",""))
If the result of the string is " CONTACT PERSON (FINANCE ONLY) - MANDATORY " then - word MANDATORY (not the whole string) should be in RED - words (FINANCE ONLY) should be in BLUE - remaining string should be left in BLANK
Do any of the templates/backgrounds offer the user a white background with every fifth row and column an off-white colour?
My document will be read by LOADS of people, so I want to be able to follow my eye across. A soft system like that lets someone scroll across twenty columns and see they're still on the same row. It's like writing 7 Oct 2013 instead of 07/10/2013. It makes sense whether you use UK dd/mm/yyyy or US mm/dd/yyyy. People say 'October' not 'month no 10.' That's my logic and design principle.
