# Using IF Function To Change Font Color

May 9, 2009

I'm trying to use Excel to keep team standings for a baseball board game. I had no problem calculating wining percentage. Finally figured out how to calculate 'games behind.' Now I'm wondering if there is a way to change the font color of a team name based on their wining pct?

A typical row contains: A2(Team Name), B2 (Wins), C2 (Losses), D2 (Pct (B2/(B2+C2)), E2 (GB). Is there a way to use the IF function to return the 'Team Name' in green if D2>.500, 'Team Name' in red if D2<.500, and 'Team Name' in black if D2=.500 ??

## Change Font Color Based On Adjacent Cell Color

Apr 18, 2008

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.

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.

Dec 15, 2009

Set myRange = Range("V6:V50000")
For Each cell In myRange
If cell.Value < 2 Then cell.Font.ColorIndex = 5

## Change Font Color Of Command Buttons

Oct 11, 2007

I have this code for 10 Command Buttons to change the font colour. This is part of a much larger piece of code, but to simplify it, I am just using this
Sub ForeColour()
Sheet1.Cat1.ForeColor = &HC0&
Sheet1.Cat2.ForeColor = &HFF0000
Sheet1.Cat3.ForeColor = &HFF0000
Sheet1.Cat4.ForeColor = &HFF0000
Sheet1.Cat5.ForeColor = &HFF0000
Sheet1.Cat6.ForeColor = &HFF0000
Sheet1.Cat7.ForeColor = &HFF0000
Sheet1.Cat8.ForeColor = &HFF0000
Sheet1.Cat9.ForeColor = &HFF0000
Sheet1.Cat10.ForeColor = &HFF0000
End Sub

In Excel 2003, this code works instantaneously, but I am trying to run the same code in Excel 2000 and it takes 10 seconds. Is there any way that I can speed this up in Excel 2000?

The original file was created in Excel 2003, but I have created a new file in Excel 2000 with the 10 buttons on it and the code and it still takes 10 seconds.

## Change Font Color If Another Cell Is Blank

Jan 18, 2008

I have a table - the first column is quantity, the others are descriptions, prices, etc.

I need to change the font of the other columns to white if the quantity cell is empty.

Jennifer Auto Merged Post;I'm still working on this, making baby steps. This is my code so far:

If Range("B26") = IsBlank Then
Range("C26:K26").Select
Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 2
End If

It works for line 26. Can someone give me a hint about how to make it do the same things for lines 27 through 62? Without having 35 IF statements in my code?

## Change Chart Axis Font Color With A Checkbox

Aug 22, 2014

Any way to change the font color of a chart axis when a checkbox is set to true.

let checkbox be checkbox5 and chart be chart5. What I would like to happen is that if checkbox5 is true then the font color of the horizontal axis changed to grey (RGB 166,166,166), if it is false then I would like the font color of the horizontal axis to be black (RGB 0,0,0). I also would like this macro to be run every time the checkbox changes, or the corresponding cell changes to TRUE or FALSE (it is in another sheet, say sheet2). This is the code I have so far but all it is doing is showing the chart as selected and not changing the font color. I would also like it to not physically select the chart, this is for a dashboard so the selecting of the chart throws off some of the visuals a bit, but not sure how to do change the chart values without selecting it.

## Changing Font Color Based On Change From Previous Value

Jun 18, 2008

I want the order size to be colored red. If the most recent order is larger than the previous order, I want the order size to be colored blue. If the most recent order is the exact same size as the previous order, I want the order to be colored black.

How would I make code that would let me "remember" the previous order size and the most recent order size, and let me compare them to conditionally format the font?

## How To Change Font Color In Portion Of Text String

Jul 16, 2013

I have a button (shape) whose text value is linked to cell A1. (In other words, if text in cell A1 changes, the text on the button changes). A concatenation formula exists in cell A1 to "join" together a combination of text and cell values. The formula in A1 looks something like this:

="You have "&B10&" records that contain errors."

I'd like to set the font for the "&B10" portion to be a different color than the rest of the text string so that it stands out from the rest of the text. Obviously this can be done when the text is manually entered into a text box, but when using a formula to populate the text in the text box, it's all or nothing. I'm hoping to find a way to embed a separate font color within the formula string in A1 for just the portion I want to change? For example, all text would be regular/black, but the numeric value generated from cell B10 would be yellow.

## Conditional Formatting Change The Font Color And Look Blanks

Jul 8, 2008

I have a simple sheet that has columns I-K. My issue is that in column K I am dividing J/I. If both J and I cells have a "0" then I get the #DIV0 error. If both J and I cells are blank then I get the #VALUE! error. I need it so that if the cells in J and I have a zero in them then it places a 0 in K. But if both J and I are blank then it puts something else that I can have Conditional formatting change the font color so column K looks blank. I think the IF formulas I am try to use recognize blank cells as zeros as well.
