# Workday Formula On A Conditional Formatting

May 29, 2009
I am having an issue, because aparently workday formula does not work in conditional formattings.

I have the two formulas below to use in conditional formattings, but I can't figure out how to re-write them so that Excel will allow me.

Maybe I'm getting a blank, maybe the answer is so easy, but lately I can´t solve this: How do I use conditional format to change cell color if cell value (date) is not workday?

I am trying to create a sheet for a project that will identify dates a project will conclude omitting weekends and holidays. I keep getting an error with the formula I have.

In my spreadsheet:

A1 is the start date

B1 is the number of days after the start date.

The formula I am using:

=WORKDAY(A1,NETWORKDAYS(A1,A1+B1),{""4/6/2007","5/28/2007", "7/4/2007","9/3/2007","11/22/2007","12/25/2007","1/1/2008","1/21/2008","3/21/2008","5/26/2008", "7/4/2008","9/1/2008","11/27/2008","12/25/2008"}"}+0)

The error I get is with the parens (A1,A1+B1). - at least the parens are highlighted in purple.

I am trying to find a formula that would calculate what workday a date would be.

So if the date is 2/19/2007, I want to know that is the 13th workday.

My boss has made it clear I can't require our people to use the add-in.

I have searched under WORKDAY as well as under Barry Houdini, since someone said he has come up with plenty of replacements for the Analysis add-in... but I am not finding it.. can someone help?

Using the add-in, this is what I have:

myCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=WORKDAY(RC[1],-RC[2])"

I'm at my wits end trying to make a workday formula work, but am having no luck. I've searched the other posts, but did not quite find a match. I'm trying to subtract a number of days from a workday function, but it seems to bypass ignoring the weekends (as is supposed to be done automatically with Workday). Here's the formula I'm trying to use:

=WORKDAY(H5,L5,' Reference Info'!$E$110:$E$117)-(I5/8)

I5/8 is a column with hours - this just calculates a number of days to subtract based on the number of scheduled hours.

The formula will calculate, but it still ignores weekends. I've tried burying the I5/8 within the parenthesis, moving it around in the formula,

Have 2 conditional formattings going on in a database query and need to apply two more conditions but only have 1 conditional formatting left. I am trying to highlight everything in a row that contains either "HCAT" or "HCAL" in column D. So far I have this,

=$D2=OR(HCAT,HCAL)

but its not highlighting anything, any clues?

I simply need to have column A be red if value is < Column B value and green if it is >. The problem is that if the value in column A is .00000004 and column B is .00000005, it turns red. Example is the first three numbers below the headers....they each are 0%, yet the value on the left turns red because it is .0000005 more than the value on the right. I just want the colors to reflect the numbers which show up as below. Is there a way to do this?

2011 % of PDD

2011 % of Total $

0%

0%

0%

0%

0%

0%

1. I have a range of random numbers within a column, i.e. A1:A9

2. A specific number will appear in a cell at the end of that column, i.e. A11

3. I need to see via conditional formatting which of the above cells add up to that number.

I am aware that given the numbers in A1:A9, it is possible to have more than one combination of numbers that add up to A11. I would need to see those combinations as well identified using Conditional formatting.

I am referencing a cell in order to change the background color of a row of cells if the number in column B is = to the number in a specific cell. The formula used in the conditional formatting is =$B73=$B$10. The reference cell $B$10 contains the following formula =INT(MAX('Assumptions & Inputs'! F8:F9))

The conditional formatting worked fine when I used that formula. I had to change the formula in cell $B$10 so that it would meet a new criteria. When I did that the conditional formatting would not change the color of the row. The new formula that I put in the reference cell $B$10 is

='Assumptions & Inputs'!$D$8+MAX('Assumptions & Inputs'!$F$8-'Assumptions & Inputs'!$D$8,'Assumptions & Inputs'!$F$9-'Assumptions & Inputs'!$D$9)

I have a challenge with conditional formatting. I have products A-K with sales current year and last year and want to have year on year growth. I want to have one column where the cell formatting changes based on data validation.

Let's say product A sold 60 items CY and 50 LY meaning YoY variance is +10 items or +20%. Hence, if the relevant cell says "%" then the YoY figure should say "+20%" (formatted as a percentage) and if "VALUES" then YoY should be 10 (formatted as numbers/absolute values).

Remember also that YoY growth can be +100% (or more), 0% and -100%.

I am trying to use conditional formatting for a cell; It is a cell using Validation; you can choose "Yes" or "No" from a list If the value is "Yes" the cell should be green, regardless of everything else But if the value is "No" it should turn red, but only if a choice in another cell is equal to "X". Otherwise it should be left without special formatting.

I am having a very difficult time trying to figure out a conditional formatting formula for something that seems very simple. There are 3 conditions I would like to apply to cell B2: If the value of I2 is less than or equal to 24, but greater than or equal to 21, shade B2 red. If the value of I2 is less than or equal to 20, but greater than or equal to 12, shade B2 orange. If the value of I2 is less than or equal to 11, but greater than or equal to 8, shade B2 yellow. I am sure I am missing something quite simple here.

I am trying to create a formula in the Conditional Formatting wizard.

I would like the formula to format B2:F2 in a particular way if a count of the number of values in this range equals 5 AND if all values are less than or equal to 25.

I have tried with following formula without success:

=IF(AND(COUNT(B2:F2)=5),COUNTIF(B2:F2,”<=25”)=5),””))

This is the most simplest conditional formatting which is working except on some cells. I want to compare two columns cells ex : if A=B , then format A as green.

Its working, the "formula" and "cell value contains" everything except for few cells. Cell B has formula's in it related to other cells. When i enter values in other cells, Cell B computes but A refuses to format "green".

If I just enter same value[ex 1, 1]in both the cells sans formula ,it highlights A green . I want to know , if the formula in cell B is causing the errors in formatting and if it is

I have a grading system for university students, my spreadsheet looks like this:

Student Name Academic Calendar GPA Fall GPA Winter GPA Spring GPA Summer

John Quarter 3.00 2.56 2.89 3.6

Jane Semester 3.1 n/a 3.21 3.7

I think I will need to do some conditional formatting to make it easy to fill the student GPAs .

I was thinking how to enter a formula to have the GPA winter appear as shaded when I enter "semester" in the Academic Calendar column.

My attached spreadsheet is for tracking when certain tasks were completed on each case and figuring the number of days that it takes to complete these tasks.

The task I am needing help in formatting is the Corrections Received field (column E). We need to track the cases that do not have corrections received within 7 days of the changes being requested (Out for Corrections, column D). The issue is that there would not usually be a date entered in the Corrections Received column when we need to look at those cases...because they would not be received yet. In order to not get an extreme default value (like the -40181 or 40922), I entered the =Now() function in column E (except for first case as an example of what this would look like otherwise).

What I was hoping to be able to do is use conditional formatting to look for that Now() formula. If the formula is present, the cell would be highlighted. If a date were entered, even if it was today's date, the fill on that cell would be removed. That way we could tell when the displayed date is a true date and when it is a placeholder until we receive the information.

Currently, it either highlights no matter what the cell includes or it doesn't highlight anything...

My VBA code should post the formula "=IF($B6=""Store URL"",TRUE,FALSE)" into the conditional formatting formula box but everytime it pastes something different, such as "=IF($B11="Store URL",TRUE,FALSE)"

The full code is:

Sheet1.Select

Set ConditionalFormattingRange = ActiveSheet.Range("B6:F505")

ConditionalFormattingRange.FormatConditions.delete

(1) I have conditional formatting working to format cells that contain a formula.

(2) I need to also separately conditional format cells which link to a formula in an external worksheet.

I don't wish to use VBA and would like to use defined name range method outlined below.

To do (1) above:

Under define name range, created "cellhasformula", the formula used in the field refers to was: =get.cell(48,indirect("rc",false))

In conditional formatting using: format values where this formula is true. =cellhasformula (works great).

These formulas in their current form, do not work in defining name range:

=InStr(1, c.Formula, ".xls") > 0

or eg =InStr(1,rCell.Formula,"[")>0

exact formula to use in define name range to return a true value if a formula is linked to an external worksheet?

I have a cell that has a conditional formatting of Cell Value< 90 the cell value is based off a formula which is

=LEFT(E48,LEN(E48)-1)

which when it comes out to me less then 90 I need it to color red. But it does not is there something that I need in the conditional formatting to tell that its a number?

I have two columns:

Column "D" is a date field

Column "E" is a number field

I would like to Conditional Format the Dates in Column "D" to have a color fill:

If the value in column "E" is >99 and the Date in Column "D" is over 42 days before TODAY

=AND($E$3>99, $D$3

For some reason the end of teh formula will not display:

I know it can be done cause I've used it before but I can't seem to make it work this time. I want to use the conditional formatting to compare two ranges of cells within one worksheet I know it's something like =match(A2:C12) the two ranges are sitting one on top of the other. . .

Is it possible to have the conditional format auto adjust the cell value range (similar to how the drop and drag with the autocomplete cell values turned on works)?

For example:

If I conditional format: A1 - does not equal A2 then change colour to blue. Then use the Format Paint to copy the A1 conditional format to B1. Is there any way that it can auto adjust the cell reference to change to - does not equal B2 (the next cell down and so on) rather than having to manually go to each cell and adjust the cell reference?

Ultimately I want the following to happen:

A1 - does not equal A2 (colour blue)

B1 - does not equal B2 (colour blue)

C1 - does not equal C2 (colour blue) etc

I have used Excel for a number of years and have gotten on ok on my own working out simple formulas myself but I have been stuck on this one for a while. Is it possible to enter a value into a cell and have a predefined formula that works with the data that I enter?? I would like to enter a value between 1-10 and the cell then takes this number and multiplies it by a value in another cell. Eg.

I have a cell that displays £10 (let's say D6)

In another cell I enter 8

I would then like the cell to do the formula =8*D6 automatically, as this value can be different each time (1-10)

There is a clever piece of conditional formatting designed to show if a formula has been overwritten. It works by creating a range called (say) CellHasFormula and then entering =GET.CELLl(48,Indirect("rc",false)) in the reference box. In the cell you wish to conditionally format you enter =CellHasFormula. If the formula in that cell is overwritten, then the conditional formatting is displayed.

I am drawing a blank. I want to use conditional formatting in cell b2 that will outline the cell(I know how to do that) based on a formula. The formula I need would determine if cell a2 is 26,27, or 28. Or function just returns true/false. I would rather not use 2 formulas.
