Using A IF / IFELSE Statment To Change A Cells Format
Jan 11, 2009
I have been trying to get a formatting programme to work for well over a week and no matter what I try I seem destined to fail. I am trying to use an IF statement in VBA to format a cell if the result of the IF is true. The values in the cells being formatted have been generated from a VLOOKUP statment (looking at a table on another sheet of the workbook). I have tried to use conditional formatting but cannot get past the limit of 3 conditions.
Note in the code below I have values that may appear the same but to make them unique they have a single (or double) space before and after the character. Not sure if the code I have below is workable, if anyone has a better idea please let me know (its a little long winded). I am currently self learning VBA (through forums and the like) and below is the best I have come up with... however when I try to run it I only get a Run-time error 1004, application-defined or object defined error.
I need to format the background color of a row using an if statement or something similar. If have a certain cell has a specific value I want the entire row that the cell is on to have a specific background color.
I have a consolidated sheet which I maintain to keep track of the scores of my team. Unfortunately from time to time, the format of all the cells is getting changed to "time" value. I do sometimes use an addin which I have downloaded from Straxx.com (excel password remover) and I am not sure if this add-in has anything to do with this.
I am having to change the format of almost 20+ columns every time this happens.
I cannot change the number format in a single sheet of my spreadsheet. I can go to format cells and select colour etc but it will not change the number format.
Another issue on the same sheet is that linked cells i.e cell b3 formula "=A3" displays "=A3" not the actual value in A3. Again, i cannot change the number format of this cell and yes, auto calc is on.
Whilst not wanting to offer a partial explaination (per the rules) just before this happened i was pressing a combitation of Shift+Control+` - not sure if that is relevant.
I want to get the sheet back to its 'normal' working order.
whenever i start a new worksheet in the workbook, it's format is set as custom format. At the same time, whatever pivot table draw will be in this custom format. Is there anyway i can change the default format back to general? There is also a sample attached...The actual db is kinda more complex than that but there is a limitation of 40kb so...Is there any other preferred website to upload files?
I have created a named range that includes raw data layed out in 4 columns (Finish Name, Fill Color, Pattern, Font Color). On a separate sheet, when one of the finish names is selected in a particular cell, I want the cells fill, pattern, and font color to change according to the raw data. Below is the vba code I am trying to get to work. However, it is not working. It does not break, but does not achieve the desired result. It looks like the variables are getting set correctly, but still not changing the cell when they are referenced. I am only testing it on the first finish color, as seen in the code. All of the rest are static values for the cell, but I want the values to be dynamic.
Sub SetFinishSeparatorColor() ActiveCell = frmFinishSeparator.cboFinish.Value Set rngTarget = ActiveCell With Sheets("Pick List Do Not Tamper").Range("Finish_Cell_Color") lngFinishCellColor = . Find(What:=rngTarget, After:=.Cells(1, 1), _ LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _ SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False).Offset(0, 1)..............
I am trying to format certain cells to change colors depending on the date and the content of the next field to show due dates.
cell label due date date completed
c5 au5 be5
c6 au6 be6
c7 au7 be7
c8 au8 be8
What I need is for the contents of au5 to be green up until 10 days before the due date, yellow up until 5 days, and red with less than 5 days until the due date. If the date completed is entered into be5, then the contents of au5 should be black.
Is this possible, and if it is, how do I set this up? I tried to use
And choose green formatting (something I found on yahoo answers), but when I enter the date the text is still the original black font.
what I am looking to do is when in colum AA a cell changes to "Drawdown" I'd like the cells in column A:D,F,H:L,N:Q,S:Z on the same row to grey out and a line to be insert below the cell that was changed, if it selects "Fee" , cells in A:D,F,H:L,N:Q,S:Z on the same row.
I have writen the following butit seems rather cumbersome and I can not get the insert line to work.
Code: Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim WatchRange As Range Dim IntersectRange As Range Set WatchRange = Range("AA1:AA500") Set IntersectRange = Intersect(Target, WatchRange)
I have the same report, one a monday snapshot, the other a daily comparison. I would like to index columns B, in both reports, to find the same part number and then reference the horizontal row and highlight increases in columns G thru AD. The comparison report looks identical but the column B numbers may not be in the same location. this is a report to show prosduction requirements and the increases throughout the week.
I need change the color of the cell depending on the following conditions. (By the way the column will have names list)
1. single punctuations are allowed anywhere in name apart from first position.-->color should not change 2. If any name got consecutive punctuations --> color should change to RED. 3. Any punctuations apart from Dot(.), hyphen(-), apostrophe('), Space( ) are not allowed-->color should change to RED.
What would be the quickest and most efficient way of doing the following:
Sheet 1: clicking once, twice, three times in the following cells to change the fill to Red, Yellow, Green respectively (in Row 22, COLUMNS E H K N Q T W Z AD AG) and mirrorring this format/fill on:
Sheet 2: , mirror the selected fill on sheet1 in E22, H22 , K22 in in E3:N3 respectively example E22 (sheet1) is mirrored now in E3 (sheet 2); H22 (sheet 1) is mirrored in F3 (sheet2) etc etc.
I have 35 tabs formatted in the same way - each tab, as with Sheet 1 is linked to a different row on sheet 2 in the same range as is sheet 1 and would need to replicate the mirorring on Sheet 1 to each of the other 34 tabs.
I would like to have a single button that changes a range of cells from the USD to EURO to perhaps CAD symbol. Can this operation be performed, such that if I start in dollars, and I click the button once, it shifts by range to EURO (not formulas...just symbol)...and then if I click the same button again, it goes to CAD, and then back to USD with a third click?
I have two columns where there are dates (e.g. 11/05/2009) in a date format; I would like to change the format to `general`; but without losing the original values, i.e. I still want to see 11/05/2009, but just in `general`format. Is it possible to create a macro that will do that? I want these values to stay in the same place, i.e. if it is in cell K10, I still want to have it there - just in other format.
I have an excel sheet full of dates in text format and want to convert them into regular format. For instance, one of the dates listed is in text as "60801". I'd like it to show in regular date format of mm/dd/yyyy, so that 60801 becomes 8/1/2006.
Ok ive been playing about with excel for the past week to get a spreadsheep up and running so i can see the totals of some things and now its getting a little complecated for me (ive done the easy stuff lol)
Ok here is the situation and i'll try and explain what im doing as best as i can. Im trying to make a spreadsheet that shows how much a resorce can be refined so lets say in a1 to c1 i have 400 in each but i can mix a with b and b with c at the ratio of every 20 of a and c to ever 10 of b
so somewhere in my spread sheet id have the result 20 and 20 as products ato c can make 20 of product d and e i hope that makes sence?
for every 20 + 10 of a(400)+b(400) = 20 and for every 20 + 10 of c(400)+b(400) = 20
so if i had 600 300 600 instead of 400 i can only make 30 of product d of e (id have to choose)
I have txtboxes in which I write date in format dd/mm/yyyy but if I want to put date in cell correctly from this textbox in need to declare event on exit -change format to mm/dd/yyyy and then it puts date in desired format which is dd/mm/yyyy and my regional settings are English(uk)
Is there a way to put any date format in textbox and in cell there will always be format dd/mm/yyyy or at least if date is entered in format dd/mm/yyyy that also in cell the same format is putted
I have another question with my red sox scores excel sheet. On my overview I want to be able to select any team, and view the indiviual stats against them. For the life of me I dont' know/can't find how to even do a simple yes no if statment to what the value in the drop down menu box is.
I don't even know if using the IF statement is the right function, but anyway. I am using VLOOKUP to complete a supply list, but of course if the supply name isn't on the first spreadsheet then the result is NA. Instead I want it to return 0.
I would like to check whether 2 conditions are satisfy in an if statement. One condition is of data type text and it is stored in a variable calls search1 whereas the other condition is of data type date and i intend to store into a variable calls search2. Could someone tell how to put search 2 into the below code. Basically, i want it to be like
if Cell A is equal to search1 and CellB is equal to search2 then
return value that is associated with the search in cell c
why the code below is very slow with the extra if statment in it (marked with **) i have googled around and found that my for staments are correct i have tried screen updating etc. i have added a timer to see what diffrence it makes, what i have is 3 sheets 1st has about 100 rows with a number and time same as second but that only has 2 rows of the same the 3rd sheet has about 100 rows of just a number what the code does is loop through the 3rd sheet (build list) when it finds a number it looks on the first sheet to find the same number then gets the data in the second coloum and so on until it reaches a cell that says stop.
i have added a button to start this process, with the ** line in it takes 311 seconds with out it it takes 0.17 seconds
I have a list of codes. Some of them may be duplicated. I want to use the conditional formatting and the IF statement to highlight in a particular colour any codes that have appear twice or more. I used to know how to do this but now I cannot get it right.
I am trying to use an IF statment to look at 2 values, 1 from a defined range and the second based on offsetting the the first to Format a number of cells with a worksheet. Affectivley if the First Value is "E" and the value two columns to the left is a Sat or Sun I wish to format the row slightly differently from if it is a weekday. (There will be an M and a L as well)
If you look in the file you will see a records sheets and a form sheet. I want to see if a record has been broken. All the times are in seconds and the distances are in centimeters. How can I find a certain row, compare and act based on an if statment?
I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.
