I would like to highlight cells is two conditions are met:Cell = 0Offset(0,-1)>0I tried the conditional format wizard and entered a formula: =IF(AND($J2=0,$I2>0)) But I keep receiving formual errors, which I understand, because it appears to be incomplete formula.

Jan 2, 2009

I'm looking for a formula to use with conditional formatting that highlights cells if any of more than 3 conditions is met. I saw it on this forum before, but I can't find it with a search. It was something like =or(condition1),or(condition2), etc.

Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting With Two Conditions In Different Cells?

May 28, 2013

I have two conditions for a cell. One is that it counts the time elapsed in cell M4, (=now()-J4). The other is whether or not we are still waiting for a response (in cell L4, Y or N). What I would like to do is make it so that when we are still waiting for a response the M4 cell is highlighted yellow if more than 3 days and red if more than 6 days, but if cell L4 is changed to "N", then the formatting goes away. II use Excel 2010.

Conditional Formatting With 2 Or 3 Conditions?

Jun 9, 2014

In the attached spreadsheet, the numbers in col A derived from another spreadsheet. The table D1:L21 is precaculated based on projection. I need 2 cells highlighted when they capture the number from the same row (col A). In another word, whenever the number from col A fall in between the 2 cells in the same row, they will be highlighted. Another condition is when it is smaller then 10 reps, the corresding cell in col D will be highlighted, as demonstrated in the attached table. I tried AND(E2<A2, F2>A2) but it didn't work. I also tried LARGE((E2:L2<A2)*(E2:L2),1) and similar SMALL function. They work as an array in normal excel, but not in the conditional formatting.

I am trying to fill a cell green if the current value > avg value and in red if < than avg value. I have tried to use conditional formatting but I cannot see where i can add additional rules. In any case here is what I am trying to do:

Daily Avg. Units:42
Avg Bgt. Units:7

The cell containing the number 42 is filled in green. If the figure was less than 7 it would have been red.

How To Add More Conditional Formatting Conditions Than 3?

Conditional Formatting With 6 Conditions?

Jan 23, 2010

I'm using Excel 2000 which has a limit of three conditions, I have 6. If you could just get me started, I still don't understand VBA enough to do this.

In cell A1, the color is set to red. I want A1 to turn green when all 6 conditions are met:

1. Cell B1 has a valid value from its pull down list, no other value, and not empty.
2. Cell B2 has an integer, no decimal places allowed, and not empty.
3. Cell B3 has a valid value from its pull down list, no other value, and not empty
4. Cell B4 is not empty.
5. Cell B5 has a three decimal place number greater than zero.
6. Cell B6 has a single letter from A-Z only.

Conditional Formatting With 4 Conditions

Oct 17, 2008

I am using a drop down list in excel and want to conditional format the cells based on what is selected from the list. I can't use conditional formatting as I have more than 3 items in the list.

I am guessing VBA can help but am a complete novice so could use some handholding on what to do.

Idea is that if someone select "Good" from dropdown, cell becomes green, "Stable" is amber and so on.

I want to use conditional formatting for RAG reporting. I had done this by having Cell is R then the format would be RED, Cell is A, then yellow, etc...

However I would like to have a blank cell or N/a no format the cell at all-currently this is making the cells green.

Do I need to use Formula instead? and tips on how this could be written would be great as well.

Conditional Formatting For 4 Conditions In Vba

Jan 26, 2007

Need to figure out a code for Conditional formatting to work for 4 cases. I dropped programming 5 yrs ago...have forgotten mostly everything but I know this can be done. What I need:

Range = entire sheet
Upon entering a date(X) anywhere in the row the date is calculated from today's date(Y) and if the date entered is -infinity to 30 then the entire row turns red. 31 to 60 days orange, 61 to 90 days yellow, 91 to 120 days green, 120+ nothing.

Basically Y-X.
Case <30 red row
Case 31-60 orange row
Case 61-90 Yellow row
Case 91-120 Green Row
121+ nothing.

Conditional Formatting Based On Several Conditions

Oct 11, 2013

I am trying to do some conditional formatting to highlight rows based on several conditions, I don't know if this is possible, but these are the criteria:

AAPL
tt
10/1/2013 11:14:15

GOOG
ll
10/1/2013 11:14:20

[code].....

I want to highlight a row if:

- the difference in time value is < 20 seconds

- the first symbol column is the same

- at least one, but not all of the rows meeting the above criteria contains a value in the second column from a given list (in this example, say tt is on this list)

So if done properly the logic would highlight the first and third rows, but would highlight none if none of the values in column two match my list.

I think the test criteria would go something like this, however I know that there are problems with my row references.

=and(abs($C2-$C3:$C65536)<0.0003,$A2=$A3,match($A2,Sheet1!A:A,0)>0)

VB Color Formatting More Than 4 Cell Conditions

Jun 25, 2009

The code below turns numbers and dates on my worksheets(1) to text priorities on my worksheets(3), I now need to color the cell backgrounds of the results on worksheets(3). With formulas I know I can conditional format up to 3 colors (or 4 utilising the background) but I am after 6. I also know that you will look at my code and laugh as I should have done the color coding with the initial commands, but I struggled with it for 2 days and simply couldn't get it to work.

In the VB below it all works off a command button and up to the third color it works however it then gets stuck and throws up a runtime error '1004' Application defined or object defined error. I did get around this before by recording macros and effectively sticking them together but it hasn't worked on this occasion...... any ideas??? (I hope I'm not breaking any rules by pasting the code directly in?)

I have a cell that I want changed to green (red 133 Green 180 Blue 0) if a line is considered active. As conditional formatting only allows 3 arguments, I need to perhaps code it?

Along the columns are cells that can change a row to active or inactive.
Here are my arguments.

If B5>1 .. row = active
If B5>1 & G5>1 .. row = inactive
If B5>1 & G5>1 & H5>1 .. row = active

If at any time L5>1 & M5="" .. row = inactive .. OR
If at any time Q5>1 & R5="" .. row = inactive .. BUT

If at any time L5>1 & M5>1 .. or .. Q5>1 & R5>1 .. row = active

then ..

If H5>1, M5>1, R5>1, T5>1 & AH5="", AJ5="", AL5="" .. row = active

so If at any time AH5>1 .. or .. AJ5>1 .. or .. AL5>1 .. row = inactive

How Can I Use Conditional Formatting To Mark Up This Set Of Error Conditions?

Jan 23, 2009

I have a lot of data (regarding graffiti) in a table and all my formulas work well. But, because I sometimes make an error in two columns of data I sometimes get results that do not balance. I want to put in a conditional format (?Is there a better way?) that will highlight the error as I enter the data. Can you help please?

Using Excel 2003 (sp3) and no add ons. There are lots of identical rows, 5:400, making up a table. I will use row 10 as an example.

In column M there is a formula which may or may not give a visible result. (It's a measure of the number of days taken to clean the graffiti and will only hold a result if the job has been finished.) The result for "M10" will be a number between 0 and 5 90% of the time, but may creep up to 30. It may also leave the cell looking blank although the formula itself is still lurking out of sight.

A matching row of cells, O10:T10, have no formulas in them. I must manually enter a "w" or an "a" into ONE of these columns, depending on the graffiti location (Worthing or Adur) and property ownership (Columns for residential, commercial, council etc.)

So now the errors I need to flag up as I enter data are to ensure that M and O:T balance. There should always be a result in M if there is an entry somewhere in O:T and if there is an entry in M there must be an entry somewhere in O:T.

Sometimes I mistakenly put an entry in O:T even if there was no result in M. Sometimes there is a result in M and I fail to put an entry in O:T. I need to be alerted as this happens, if possible. It will save hours of trying to track down my data entry errors.

BUT, there is already one conditional format already in M. It highlights the cell if it goes over 5 days for cleaning. =ISNUMBER(M10)*(M10>5).

If you can help, thank you very much. I thank you, my wife thanks you for me not doing overtime trying to track down my errors, my boss's thank you for making me more efficient and other forum readers may thank you for helping them to improve their sheets.

Formatting Cell Colors With Multiple Conditions

Oct 29, 2008

so what will happen is that the number of rows will continuously increase as the groups of data (Labeled Group #) increases. The data within each group will vary from time to time so some groups may contain only one line while others may contain multiple lines. I have included an attachment that illustrates what I'm trying to achieve. When data is entered in Column A under "Q," the adjacent empty cells in Columns B-F (labeled "R"-"V") will turn red. This is the part I have (i.e. Group 2).

Second, there is one more condition to meet. If the date in column K3 is older than todays date then row 3 should be turn Red regardless of what is found in column J3.

Conditional Formatting That References Two Separate Conditions

I am trying to use conditional formatting in Excel 2003 to indicate when certain tasks are overdue (by highlighting the cell in red). My problem is that I have multiple criteria. If my line item is a "priority" item, it is considered aged if not resolved after 2 days; if the line item is "routine", the item is not considered aged until after two weeks (14 days). My goal is:

1) I would like the "status" cell in column D (which says "open" or "closed") to turn red if the item is aged.

2) Aging depends on the "priority" status in column A .......

Conditional Formatting More Than 3 Conditions Based On Dates

I want to create a chart than logs the progress of a project at work. Column 1 will have a series of target dates for certain tasks and column 2 will be filled in with the completed dates. I want automatically colour a cell (RC) based on the date given in the cell to the left (RC[-1]) giving a traffic light style warning of an upcoming target date and colour coding the cells when a task is completed on time (or not!). I can work out what the conditions are by creating 2 sets of 3 conditions (1 set if cell (RC) is empty and 1 set if cell (RC) has a date or "N/A" in it).

My conditions are:

1. Turn the cell background colour red (action overdue) if:

Formula Is:=IF(AND(RC[-1]"",RC="",RC[-1]

2. Turn the cell background colour orange (action required) if:

Formula Is: =IF(AND(RC[-1]"",RC="",RC[-1]

Conditional Formatting - More Than 3 Conditions - Result Based On Another Cell

Aug 3, 2009

I have established that to have more than 3 conditions in my version of Excel (2003) i have to use VBA. Unfortunately I have very little knowledge of this process. I have attached an example of the worksheet I am working on. The worksheet in question totals hours worked for payroll. problem:

Required result: Cell to change to 1 of 8 background colours in response to selection of 1 of 8 options in drop down list in the cell directly next it.

i.e. (in reference to attachment - sheet DATA)
IF E6 = Holiday, then D6 = Red
IF E6 = Half Day Holiday, then D6 = Red
IF E6 = Sick, then D6 = Blue
IF E6 = Sick Half Day, then D6 = Blue
IF E6 = Bank Holiday, then D6 = Green
IF E6 = Compassionate Leave, then D6 = Pink
IF E6 = Unpaid Leave then, D6 = Yellow
IF E6 = Unpaid Leave Half Day then, D6 = Yellow

However, the same basic table as shown in sheet DATA appears several times on the worksheet. And in each instance the conditional formatting is the same (in reference to the relative cells).

Get Conditional Formatting To Change The Cell Color Based On A Few Conditions?

Jul 19, 2013

I'm trying to get conditional formatting to change the cell color based on a few conditions.

I want the cells in column D to turn red if;

- The number in column B has a match in column A

- And the corresponding cell in column C is not blank

- And the corresponding cell in column D is blank

In the example below, cell D4 should be red

If there's a match (Column B to Column A) and;

- If cell in column C is not blank and cell in column D is not blank, do nothing.

If there's a match (Column B to Column A) and:

- If cell in column C is blank and cell in column D is blank, do nothing.

Here's the formula I attempted but didn't get it to work.

IF(AND(C2"",D2=""),MATCH(B2,$A$2:$A$15,0),IF((AND(C2"",D"")),"",""))

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

Color Cells Based On Multiple Conditions Of Different Cells

Jan 15, 2008

Im trying to change color in cell B9 according to different conditions in Cell C9 (than on b10 according to c10 and so long until necessary - probably will be around 2000 lines). Since there are more than 3 conditions and in two cases condition depends on the color of the C Column, I can not use conditional formatting. Ive searched and found similar forums here, but since Im ignorant in VBA code, I couldnt manage to make adjustments. So if you can help me with the code, I would really appreciate it!

Condition and Results required would be:

IF column C = S than on Column B = color cell light blue with white border
IF column C = P than on Column B = color cell Green with white border
IF column C = A than on Column B = color cell Yellow with white border
IF column C = L than on Column B = color cell Red with white border
IF column C = C than on Column B = color cell Dark Blue with white border
IF column C = than on Column B = color cell white
IF column C = V and has white background than on Column B = color cell white
IF column C = V and has a Dark Grey background than on Column B = color cell Dark Grey

I dont know if the last two are feasible.

Coloring Cells By Conditions?

Nov 13, 2011

With a range of cells (a1:ao41) I want to color several cells depending on the value of that particular cell and another color when that particular and a corresponding cell have both the same value. It's some sort of sociogram The first row and column both contains names of students. Let say the students have to choose the three most populair ones to work with and the three most unpopulair ones. Positive ones get the color blue, negative ones get the color yellow. That's easy to do with conditional formatting. But now comes the tricky part. If for instance Student 3 chooses Student 7 and Student 7 chooses Student 3 the color of both cells have to be green if both positive and red if both negative. That's also do-able with conditional formatting, but it most be much easier to do with VBA. I just don't know how .
