VBA To Convert Conditional Formatting To Fixed Formatting?

Jul 5, 2013

Any VBA that I can put into a macro that will convert conditional formatting into fixed formatting..? So when the cell contents/formulas are deleted the formatting remains. Assume that the range I want to convert is A1:D200...

A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.

Is there "code" for different formatting in a spreadsheet so you can use an IF statement to do something like:

if(A1=blue background,"Yes","No")

or

if(A1=red text,"Yes","No")

etc.?? But replace "blue background" and "red text" with some sort of number code? I want to compile a list of the items that are formatted with certain background colors and/or text colors and then organize only those items into a chart.

Is it possible to change the format of cell AI3 based on the format of cell C3 and D3? I have C3 and D3 set to turn red based on what is in cell C2 and D2. I would like the following done:

If AI3=C3 & C3 is red, format AI3 blue If AI3=D3 & D3 is red, format AI3 blue Otherwise, leave AI3 unformatted.

I have a hard time when it comes to "If then" statements and conditional formatting. I have some data that I am collecting and entering into a spreadsheet for a couple different companies. Once I receive paperwork from those companies for the data collected I mark the data with a blue colored text. I would like to have a second sheet that generates what companies have not sent me their paperwork. "If the data is black text, then generate <name of company> on second sheet." The list is small right now, but as the project continues it will grow very large and it will become difficult to track. I will attach a copy of the spreadsheet for you to see the situation. I would like to learn how to do these types of formulas, is there a tutorial geared towards these types of situations?

Must admit the R1C1 still confuses me, but somehow I have this working. Currently the RC4 displays in conditional format as $D8 and the RC4 as $C8, but I'm confused at how it knows to start at R8? Is there any way to make the formulas read ="=$D8=""No""" instead?

I have two spreadsheet "book1" with data in it, "book2" that takes all the information from "book1" the cells are linked in "book2" from "book1" so when someone updates "book1" the information is viewable in "book2"

In "book2" where I am getting stuck is as follows,

Column A contains data "break time" that is formatted in HH:MM:SS column B contains a "total duration" in HH:MM:SS. what I need to do is if column A data is = to or more than 4% of column B then I want to turn the cell in column A "red" if it is less then turn it "green". I have tried conditional formatting and it appears to work the once only, I dont no if this is because its 2003 and not 2007??

What I need is to repeat the conditional format over and over again forever is there any code for this I can use?

I have used conditional formatting various ways to format an individual cell. I was wondering does anyone know if it is possible to conditionally format a row? Eaxmple: If D7=Manager, then format A7 through Z7. If so, how would I go about setting that up?

I'm wanting to create a formula in column B that will return a value of 10 if column A is any value between 70% -100%, will return a value of 5 if column A is any value between 50% - 69%, and will return a value of 1 if column A is any value between 1% - 49%. Can you help me?

I want to do an if (I think I do??) command so that if a1=b1, then the cell turns blue and if a1=0, the cell turns red, with the false statement just being blank.

I have my formulas in place and they are working. The reason why some are coming up with #DIV/0 is because I do not have the data to complete the calculation.

Is there a way to make the #DIV/0 error go away until I imput the data to complete the calculation? I was thinking there might be a way to do it with conditional formatting.

Sub Macro1() With Range("A1") .FormatConditions.Delete .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=A1=B1" .FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 3 .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=A1B1" .FormatConditions(2).Interior.ColorIndex = 50 .AutoFill Destination:=Range("A1:A29"), Type:=xlFillDefault End With End Sub

If my active cell is NOT A1, the formula entered into conditional formatting is off. The range references get all messed up. For example, if my active cell is Say D5

Condition 1 is =IT65533=IU65533 Condition 2 is =IT65533IU65533

But if I run the code with A1 as my active cell, it gets entered correctly as Condition 1 =A1=B1 Condition 2 =A1B1

I would like to add conditional formatting for the whole row based on whether the value of cells in column A is "CON".

For Each c In r If c.Value = "CON" Then c.EntireRow.FormatConditions.Delete c.EntireRow.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:=c.Address = "OK" c.EntireRow.FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 35 end if next c the "CON" is a formula and can later take the value "OK".

The conditional formatting should highlight the whole row as green when that happens.

I am not sure if this requires conditional formatting/vba function

If I enter something in cell A1 and leave blank in cell c1, in cell c1 it should print the message "Required Entry, Please Fill up". and this condition should be applied to entire column, where ever in column A there is some values and column c is empty this condition should apply.

I don’t know if it is possible in Excel 2000 but I have a simple IF formula in a cell that gives "" on certain conditions.The problem I have is that in another cell I apply conditional formatting – green >100%, red<100% e.g.

Is it possible to have a third conditional format that gives a blank if the cell is ""?

At the moment it just turns out green as it doesn’t seem to recognise the cell as actually been blank as it has a formula within it.I have tried ISBLANK etc.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer Dim cr As Date cr = Today() If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C5:M44")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case "X" icolor = 10 Case "N/A" icolor = 2 Case cr.Value >= Today() icolor = 6 Case cr.Value <= Today() icolor = 3 Case "DATE?" icolor = 8 Case Else icolor = 2 End Select Target.Interior.ColorIndex = icolor End If

I've written a macro that copies a range of cells (size varies) from Sheet1 to Sheet2, deletes the conditional formatting already there, and applies fresh conditional formatting to Sheet2 on the new range. But, the expression in the FormatConditions is way different than what I specified in the code. Here's my Conditional Formatting

Set mt1 = tData.Columns(1). Find(What:="", After:=tData.Range("A1"), LookIn:=xlValues) tData.Range("A2:A" & mt1.Row - 1).FormatConditions.Delete With tData.Range("A2:A3" & mt1.Row - 1).FormatConditions _ .Add(xlExpression, , "=A2=A1") .Font.ColorIndex = 2 End With

When I look in cell A2, I see this for the expression: "=A65301=A65300". Any idea why it isn't starting with "=A2=A1" as I specified in the code?

I need to run a loop through a column of values (attachment col B) and when it finds a "J" it will apply conditional formatting to a row of 4 cells directly adjacent. The attachment is a theoretical before & after.

I am trying to create a macro (which will go in an add-in, using Excel 2007) which will apply a custom format to any selected cells which have their formulae hidden (Format Cells, Protection, Hidden). A similar macro works fine for locked cells.

Here is the UDF I wrote, which returns True/False based on the Hidden status of a cell:

VB: Public Function Hidden(Check_Cell As Range) Hidden = Check_Cell.FormulaHidden = True End Function

[Code]....

just place all three pieces of code into a module, and change the first line of the two macros to a standard "Sub Macro1()" type format.

I have a challenge, which i have attached a spreadsheet. It's probably easier if you look at the spreadsheet, rather than me trying to explain. I've added some notes for reference.

I've tried to use an IF/vlookup function but I cant seem to make it work.

I am trying to do conditional formatting to make a cell say something for 3 different scenarios. If K6 > G6, then I need M6 to say "Early." If K6 < G6, then I need M6 to say "Late." If K6 = G6, then I need M6 to say "On Time."

I am trying to run a "IF" function which will allow me to check the time in a cell, and then display only the value of the hour in another cell. For example, if the cell reads "03:40:45", I want the cell next to it to display only "03". I need to be able to do this over a 24 hour period so the formula should work for each hour, regardless of the actual value of the hour. Right now, I am using the formula "=IF(AND(cell>=TIME(0,0,0),cell<TIME(1,0,0)),"0","")". I have to change the value of the time manually for each hour right now and the display value if true, but there has to be a simpler way!

I have a spread sheet that shows dates when people have been assessed to be fit to carry out exercise I want to be able to put dates into a cell that are older than today e.g. 07.07.2013 and it turns the cell green then 11 months from that date the cell turns yellow and 12 months from date cell turns red. I can get conditional formatting to do this from the present date but not from older dates .

07,. 07. 2013 = Green 07.06. 2014 =Yellow 07.07.2014 = Red

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.
