VBA Code To Shade Rows With Like Values

Jun 17, 2014

I am fairly new to VBA and I am having some trouble with a VBA routine that was used in some workbooks I was given and I am trying to reuse that code.

What I am attempting to do is to shade the rows (alternate colors) whose value in Column C is the same until that value changes.

Row 1, 2 & 3 all have the same value in Column C so these would shade color 15
Row 4 thru 10 have a different value in Column C so those would have no shade
Row 11 thu 13 have a different value in Column C so these would then be Shade 15

So here is what I have done:

I set the range for the routine to step thru, then I defined the row & column to start processing. I then compare the current row to the row above. If the values are different then I compared the colors of the rows, and set the active row to the opposite color.

This routine runs but the first cell in each grouping isn't being shaded but then the rest of the rows are shaded correctly.
I have searched the web and look thru my code several times but to no avail, I cannot seem to understand why this will not work.

Sub grid_coloring()
Dim rwIndex, colindex, colindex2, ncount, bcount As Integer 'set rwindex, colIndex as an output number for columns. bcount and ncount are for counting blanks and dupes
Dim theRng As Range
Dim FirstRow, FirstCol, LastRow, LastCol As Integer

[Code] ..........

Shade Cells With Data

Sep 1, 2009

Any time that any data is entered into one of the cells within my spreadsheet I would like the cell in which data is entered (and only the cell in which data is entered) to automatically become shaded (gray, preferably). I know conditional formatting should be used, but beyond that, I have no clue what to do. I would also prefer not to have to enter in conditional formatting formulas into all 105 cells, but I will do it if necessary.

Just in case, here's a little more information on what I am doing: I will be sending this spreadsheet out to about 10 others, and when they enter their name on a particular day at a particular time, I want that cell to become shaded. Other people might also enter their names at that day and time as well, so I would want the cell to stay shaded if that happens. Macros are not an option, because of security reasons.

Adding Cells Based On Shade / Text Colour

Jul 4, 2007

I have a spreadsheet where I am adding up figures in columns.

I need to differentiate between 4 different "types" of cells to sum.
Cells with figures in them are either green, red or have no fill; and some cells contain no figures at all.

At the bottom of the column, I need to total up all the figures in red cells, as well as all the figures in green cells.

The shading of these cells is not permanent - colours are changed as work progresses, so I need the totals to keep up with this.

If it cannot be done based on cell fill colour, is there any other way to do it, other than the usual long-winded way of @sum(..... etc

Conditional Formatting - How To Shade Cells Based On Meeting 2 Criteria

Jul 19, 2012

I have a gantt chart that was built in excel. I need to shade cells in the timeline based on persons title under each project.

I can provide a snip of what the layout looks like for a better visual. I want the PM's Green, Supers Yellow and Persons Reporting Orange.

To get the green bar shown is using formula: =SEARCH("Project Management",$E17) , The issue with this is it fails to consider the start finish dates. For this particular project it works but when the formatting is "dragged down" the issue arises.

VBA To SHADE Cells Based On: Step-size & Starting Cell

Mar 4, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that will monitor payment schedules, in which both payment frequency and the payment start date are inputted by the user.

As such, to make filling out the column(s) fool-proof, I want to grey out cells in which data should not be entered.

For example, if the payment frequency is every 6th day, and the payments are to begin on day 0, then days 0, 6, 12 (etc) should be left white, whereas the remainder of the cells should be shaded.

I can achieve this using multiple conditional formatting rules in excel2007 with iterations of formulae of the type:

Automatically Shade Cell Dependant Upon Text In Aother Cell

Jul 13, 2009

Im writing a spreadsheet that will act as a hotel room booking diary. There will be 52 sheets (representing each week of the year) and each sheet will therefore represent one week

Each sheet will look at operate the same. Running horizontally will be the days of the week and running vertically will be each of the bedrooms. There are 22 bedrooms in total and each room will have 12 cells allotted to it for each day - lets call this a 'block' and presume that the first block runs from C10 to c21. The final of these cells C21 will have a validation and the user can select 'PAID' 'TO PAY' or 'INVOICED'

If the user selects 'PAID' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade GREEN
If the user selects 'TO PAY' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade RED
If the user selects 'INVOICE' in C21 I want cells C10 through to C21 to shade YELLOW

Want Whole Row To Shade Gray When Drop Down Item In Row = "completed"

Jul 16, 2009

I have a a worksheet with a drop down menu in one column to show various completion status options (Not started, In progress and Completed). I was able to use conditional formatting to change the color of the cell to gray when I choose "completed" from the drop down menu, but I would like the whole row in view (about 8 cells across) to shade to gray when I choose "completed" from the drop down - not just the completed cell. I'm thinking an IF statement would work, but I don't know how to use an IF statement to shade a range of cells a color.

Lock Cells Based On Value Of Other Cells - Code Simplification Query

Apr 22, 2009

I'm using the code below to lock certain cells depending on the value of other cells. The code below deals with one line of my spreadsheet only and as the spreadsheet comprises 38 data entry rows I've repeated this code 38 times in the worksheet module with the appropriate changes to row numbers.

It works, but causes much screen flickering and "thinking". I'm new to vba so no doubt I've made this code too extensive or lengthy or whatever (or just plain wrong).

Can anyone assist with suggestions on how to simplify the code and/or help with code to handle all 38 lines without repeating the routine 38 times?
