Conditional Formatting Formula Used To Turn A Block Of Cells Green

Jan 27, 2010

I have attached a small file with a very simple conditional formatting formula used to turn a block of cells green.

However, the formula does not seem to work properly as it only turns half of the cells green. Columns B1 to B18 are also supposed to turn green, but instead remain clear.

Ignore Blank Cells In Conditional Formatting?

Feb 15, 2010

I have tried to set up a list of cells to highlight in red any numerical values which are greater than 0 using conditional formatting. This works fine, except that all blank cells are also highlighted in red. Formula is currently: cell value is greater than 0. What do I need to do to ignore the empty cells?

Conditional Formatting Between 2 Values When Cells Are Not Actually Blank

Nov 18, 2013

Ok so my project is tracking how many days have passed since a collection notice has been sent. Assuming the case isn't closed, a response from the customer hasn't been received, the case has been assigned to an employee, and assuming the notice was actually sent in the first place.

There are instances where the collections case may have been closed without a response date or any other date and we call that "Administratively Closed."

This is my formula: =IF(OR(CaseStatus="Closed",ISBLANK(NoticeSentDate), ResponseDate""),"",TODAY()-NoticeSentDate)

Problem is, now that I'm trying to conditionally format the ones >60 days, and =45 days WITHOUT getting the "blank" cells to change color too.

I got the one for >60 days: =AND(OR(CaseStatus"Closed", CaseStatus"Unassigned"), Comments "Administratively Closed", DaysPassed>60, ResponseDate="", DateEnteredInDatabase"")

I can't get =45 without having a bunch of cells that appear blank change color too.

Turn #DIV//0!” To “0” Or Even Turn It To A Blank Cell

Nov 6, 2009

I have a workbook which is set up to take an average heart rate of a participant from a series of data points. I have set the spreadsheet up before I have collected some of the data. (so I can review the project at the 3 months period and its an ongoing project).

The problem is that if there is no data in a participants column then excel correctly gives you readout of “#DIV//0!”. On my results page this #DIV//0!” makes it hard to read the spreadsheet. Is it possible to get excel to turn #DIV//0!” to “0” or even turn it to a blank cell?

Conditional Formatting For Blank Cells To Display Custom Text

Feb 17, 2012

I have a range of cells with numeric values or blanks. I set up a Conditional Formatting rule with this range selected: New Rule > Format only cells that contain > Format only cells with: Blanks; then I set the formatting to a light green fill and on the Number tab > Category = Custom > Type: "blank"

The blank fields get the light green fill, but no text; that is, the value displayed is still blank.

I go back to edit the CF rule and change Blanks to No Blanks. The results are what I expect: the cells with numbers display the text blank and have a green fill; the blank cells have no fill (white).

This is my testing criteria. I eventually want the empty cells to display 0 (zero). I tried setting Custom > Type: 0 (the number placeholder zero) and Type: "0" (literally the number zero), and neither works.

I have tried this with Format only cells with Cell Value equal to [the address of a blank cell].

I tried to set the value as "" but kept getting =""""; and ="" became ="=""" ???

I have tried this with Use a Formula... using the len()=0, isblank(), and other approaches, all with the same results.

I also made sure the option [x] Show a zero in cells that have a zero value is checked.

With all approaches to identifying the blank cells, they ARE obviously being recognized as blank values: the fill color is being applied to the right cells; and when Not Blank is the criterion (or a negation of a formula), the blank ones are not formatted. But blank cells will not display the text as defined in the Custom Formatting.

And this isn't an issue of "If the cell displays 'blank' it's no longer blank, so the rule doesn't apply" - HERE'S WHY: I set up a second CF rule that sets the Font to red when the value is greater than zero and had this CF rule follow the CF rule for No Blanks (the test above that works). Cells with positive numbers displayed blank in red, cells with zeros or negative numbers displayed blank in black. This clarified that the actual value of the cell is being evaluated, not the displayed value after Custom formatting is applied.

Keeping Cells With Formula And Conditional Formatting Blank Until Data Entered?

Feb 22, 2013

I have a spreadsheet filled with formulas that depend on a value being entered into A2, A3, A4, etc... So column A starting at A2 is where I will manually input a number and the formulas I have in columns B, C, and D will import information from another sheet based off what is put in column A. In column D the formula I have to import data

is =IFERROR(VLOOKUP(A2,Master!C:M,11,0),"").

This will import another number. Additionally in column D, I have conditional formatting that will return a red, yellow or green light based off the rule I have in place. Everything works fine, the only problem is that column D has a green light all the way down even without a value being placed in column A. I would like to find out a way to keep the cells in column D blank until a value is entered in column A. Also, if I go back and delete the value in column A, I would like the corresponding cell in column D to go back to blank as well.

Conditional Formatting To Turn Field Specific Color Based On Two Conditions

Aug 9, 2014

I am trying to work with conditional formatting to turn a field a specific color based on two conditions, one of which is variable. The first condition is a list of ongoing events (which can change) and the second condition is a set of known milestones. I want to create a control (check boxes?) that will turn a given field (which has dates in it from another calculation) to either Red, Yellow, or Green.

I was thinking two Dropdown boxes - one for the events and one for the milestones. The user would choose an event, choose the milestone, then choose a checkbox or something to change the color of a field elsewhere in the spreadsheet. Right now, I'm doing this in a very clumsy way by having three checkboxes for each milestone for each event. There are five milestones per event (so 15 checkboxes per event on Sheet2). I will likely have 70+ events so I was hoping for a better way to do this. I've done this for the first three events and need a more efficient way of doing this.

See the attachment : Event Milestones based on Go Date Uploadable.xlsx‎

Execl 2007 :: Conditional Formatting - How To Turn Off Stop If True Option

Jun 2, 2009

How can you use VBA code to turn off the annoying "Stop if True" default setting when doing conditional formatting in excel 2007? Right now when you have multiple conditional formatting conditions in a cell, it stops checking and formatting other conditions if one of those conditions is satisfied. I don't why they set this as the default...

I have conditional formatting rules set up using excel 2003. The file is opened in 2007 with the above-mentioned default setting that screws up all my conditional rules.

Conditional Formatting If Cell Contains Data Highlight Red If Blank Do Nothing

Nov 4, 2012

I have a spreadsheet where I have a column of dates and I want conditional formatting to highlight the cell red if the date is less than or equal to today but if the cell is blank to do nothing.

At the moment I have the following formatting applied using the "format only cells that contain" option I have cell value less than or equal to =TODAY() except that obviously highlights every cell red that doesn't contain a date. Is there another conditional format I can apply in addition to this that will not highlight the blank cells ?

Conditional Formatting - Blank Cell Gets Unwanted Format.

Oct 31, 2008

As a pert of a spreadsheet I have 2 columns (M5:N400) of 400 cells deep. Each cell in these columns contains a formula that counts days, when appropriate. They can end up showing a value of blank, a number between 0 and 5, or any number greater than 5. (But very rarely greater than 30)

If the number is greater than 5 then it means that it has exceeded it's target time and I wish to highlight this with conditional formatting (CF). I have a CF on all cells in both columns that says.

If "The cell value" is "Greater than" "5"... then
format the background colour to a pale yellow.

It works, but doesn't work.

If the cell value is 0 to 5 it's unchanged. Good.
If the cell value is >5 it changes. Good.
BUT, if the cell is blank it also changes. Bad!!!

I assume it is because it is looking at the fact that there is a formula in the cell, even though the displayed value is "". So I tried a second level saying that if the cell is equal to "" then no format, but it still changes.

Apply Conditional Formatting To A Cell When It Is Left BLANK

Nov 30, 2008

I'm trying to apply conditional formatting (shading) to cells that are left blank.

(Purpose: I am designing a research template for a client to complete with data and want the spreadsheet to show them where they've "missed a bit"!)

(When I go to the conditional formatting box, it asks me to specify when "cell value is"..."between/not between/equal to/not equal to" etc. But there's no option to specify when the cell is blank.)

Conditional Formatting - VLOOKUP And Blank Cell In Range?

May 22, 2012

I need to format cell D1 to have the fill color be red if any cell in D2:D21 is blank. I've tried

=VLOOKUP("", $D$2:$D$21, 1, FALSE) but that returns #N/A (there is one blank cell in the range at the moment).

I really don't want to use =OR($D$2="", $D$3="", ...$D$21="") if I can avoid it.
