I am making some grids which will have a series of numbers in the individual cells. But I can't figure out how to change the colors of the digits. If I change one digit to Red; all the numbers in that cell change to Red. Whereas I would like to have them as Red,Green,Black,Blue,etc.
I know this can be done, as I have seen it before, but can't seem to figure out how to replicate it.
I have a speadsheet in which I have a drop-down box for a certain column's values. How do I automatically have each independent row's background color change dependant upon the value selected in that row's drop-down cell box (and update color automatically if a different drop-down selection is made later)?
Row 1: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "Yes"...change row color to GREEN Row 2: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "No"...change row color to RED Row 3: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "Maybe"...change row color to YELLOW
This is probably very simple but I'm having a problem finding how to change the color of a bar based on the value. For example, when the bar reaches 100% I want the bar to turn green while the other bars in the graph stay the same.
I'm trying to get a range of cells to change colors. This should happen from VBA code and happen on specified sheet that is not the default sheet when the userform appears that has the button that triggers the event. I have to reference the range with variables because it changes depending on other events.
Iím sure conditional formatting is the way forward with this but canít quite get the formula right. I need 2 columns: Column A will have dates that an event happened on. Column B will be blank until we have received back in a letter that went out on the date in column A. At which point the date the letter was received back in will be entered into column B
What I need is for the Colour of Column B to change from green (before and on the date of Column A) to Amber (for the next 3 days) and then red (from Day 5 onwards. This would be until a date was entered in column B (the date the letter is received back in) at which point it would just go back to white. This would keep a check on how long the letter was out for and whether we need to chase it up or not and with an increasing urgency.
I attached 2 examples. The first one is before the screen flickering fix I got from Andy Pope. The second is when I added the fix. When you open Example List 1 and you enter 0 at E180, the screen will flicker, but it will change (red) Watching to (green) Planning to Watch in G180.
When you open Example List 2 and you enter 0 at E180, the screen doesn't flicker anymore. The status Watching in G180 still changes to Planning to Watch, but it stays red while it has to become green. How can I have the color changes and no screen flickering? Marco:
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.
I am wanting the colors of the bars in a stacked chart to change based on the date in the X Axis. As the current date arrives, the stacked bar needs to change to various blue shades. If the date is in the future, the stacked bar needs to be various grey shades.
I am working on a project where I am virtually almost finished except for a minor change with the pie chart. I am analyzing some data and recorded a macro to do this and also the pie chart for visualization. However, I do not like the color of the default pie chart colors and would like to customize it. How could I change this within the macro I have recorded?
My pallet lost color-coding - if I hover over each little scare it displays the names for the colors and if I click on them they color the cells with the right colors, but the palette itself lost the visual display of colors except for 8 colors: black, blue, red, magenta, yellow, cyan, and white.
I use color-coding of cells a lot and I find it difficult to work without visual clues. At least the hover-support allows me to get the work done, but with difficulty.
I am a new member, with not a lot of VBA experience. Sorry for the vague title .. couldn't come up with something ^^". The idea is, I made an list with several anime titles I am watching (in column A) In column G it shows the status; "Watching", "Completed", "Planning to Watch", "On-Hold" or "Dropped". I managed to let the colors of those words change with this
I am in the process of reformatting an excel workbook to act as a review tool for different factors in a process. Part of my redesign includes the use of coding that creates different cell colors based upon the cell contents. The new workbooks will be used to handle existing data for this year. I have developed a process macro to open an existing workbook and copy and transfer the original data worksheet into the newly formatted workbook. The data gets transferred to the new worksheet and the resulting workbook is renamed and saved, Heres'' the rub... the newly saved workbook is missing all of the coding for the worksheets... apparently this is a MS bug.
Has anyone figured a workaround for this. One thought I had is to open both( new and old )workbooks and rather than move/copy , i would transfer the data using cell references.
Trying to format cells b9 through b 24 and cells c9 through c24 to change from white to a light grey color by clicking the mouse button once. so one click white, another click grey. The color grey I need is white, background 1, darker 25% in the autofill field in excel. I have search other forums they all lead to changing the code, I did this already. just copy pasted a code I found but all cells were selected to change a bright green.
I have read the instructions for conditional formatting and I don't think that is what I need. I have 10 diff year 2005,06,07 etc. I want each cell with with a diff year to turn a diff color. Like I want 2005 to be red and 2008 to be blue.
I'm trying to have change if the date on it is passed "now()". I am already using the 3 conditional formatting fields and need this one and another one. Here are 2 problems I seem to be having.
First - the code below only works if I change the date on the cell. I want code to either work with Worksheet Active or any other way so the user does not have to redo the dateís everyday. Second - a record might have conditional formatting already. Is it possible for the target cell in this code can show this color while the rest of the row shows the color of the conditional formatting?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer If Not Intersect(Target, Range("G1:G2000")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case Is <= Now() icolor = 39
I need to change the color of a specific cell when conditions are met in a different cell and it seems like it may be beyond the scope of simply applying conditional formatting. What vba code would look like in proper syntax to make the following statement true. IF cell value Q4 is >=cell value S4 AND cell value R4 is <100 Then cell Q4 turns red and IF cell value Q4 is >= cell value S4 AND cell value R4 =100 then cell Q4 turns green. it may also be useful to know that the "cell values" in this example will be dates and not straight values. this may be possible to do using conditional formatting, but i cannot find a formula that works.
when I copy a worksheet from one workbook to another, the colors on the sheet in the destination workbook, become dull/faded. They actually change from the original colors to some off colors. I copy by selecting the source sheet, hold down ctrl key, then drag from one workbook to another). Also, is there a way to get the sheet back to the original colors.
We have a workbook with over 20 worksheets, each sheet with one or more tables in it. Several people use the workbook and we have decided that when someone changes a cell, they should mark the changed cell by filling it with blue using Format Cell. We have then nominated one person at end of each week who will check all the changes made during the week and either approve or reject them. So her task is to find all the blue cells, check them and then take the shading off.
What I would like to do is to create a macro to help her. I would like the macro to automatically identify all the blue cells in the workbook and give her a list of these cells. I wonder if someone could give me direction on a couple of things:
1) The command in the macro that would return whether a cell is shaded blue
2) The way in which I could cycle through all the content of each worksheet. I'm thinking worse case I would have to write instructions to go to each sheet, and then do an outer loop to go through each row, and an inner loop for each column (and the number of active cells varies by worksheet) -
Within the Workbook events there is a "Before_Print", however I also need something like "After_Print" which does not exist (as far as I can tell).
I have several rows of data which alternate colors. When I print it I want to take out the fill (so as to save ink) - which I can do in the "Before_Print" event. [No problem.] However, once it is done printing I need to restore the alternating colors, but I cannot think of any event or trigger which would enable this.
I have thought through several things and the closest thing I can think of is setting up a timer. But there is of course no way to now how long to set it for. [Before/After Save also has the same "issue".]
i am using a set of VB codes that was kindly provided by "dr". Please refer to the link below.
Highlight-Select Start Date To End Date
However, I am facing problems on how to delete or unfill the cells that are "coloured and filled with booking reference name" (i.e. being booked by the user).
In another words, currently, once a booking is made, the blank slots would be coloured to red and would reflect the customer name in those slots (with the use of dr's VB codes).
Comes the next day, if that booking needs to be cancelled, would the user be able to "delete" that booking that was made (i.e. uncolour that slot plus remove the customer name) without having to automatically go unfill the cells and delete the text in the cells?
I am trying to write a macro that can copy the shading from another cell for me automatically. I would like to look for certain text strings within a serial number, and when found, copy that cell's shading in another cell.
I am using INDEX, MATCH to copy the corresponding value needed, but that doesn't give me the shading...
