I'm trying to add conditional formatting to a table, however I have never done this before. I would like the values in column AX to light up red if they are more than 1.5 times greater than last month's in columb AP. Attached is a picture of the table.
I have a table that I sort by the first column. The first column has section numbers, and I'd like for each section to alternate in colours so users can easily see the end of one section and the beginning of another. I've attached a screenshot of what it should look like visually, as well as a sample Excel chart
writing VB code to conditionally-format the pivot table shown here (I am not inclined to use the Excel Conditional formatting option as it loses the formatting when refreshing the pivot table)
I need a VB macro that reads each value in a Pivot table .. starting with the Col1, Row1 of the Pivot table .
It then matches the value in Col 1, Row1 to the Baseline value for Col 1 that is specified in (Yellow ) .
Note : The Baseline values are not part of the Pivot table area
If the value in in the Col 1, Row1 is less than the baseline value for that column at the top ,it formats the font color of that pivot table cell (say to red) It then moves to read the value in Col 1, Row2 and does the same check .
Once it completes the check on all values in Col 1, it does the same with Col 2 (where the values are compared to the baseline value for Col 2) ... and so on until all the colums of the PIvor table are validated in the same manner .
I have a table that contains +/- 12,000 (A6:R12266) rows and I use several conditional formatting rules to highlight rows where the data changes from the row above in a sorted column for the visual easy of users. The conditional formatting works great however the data is the spreadsheet is constantly being modified and that is where I run into the problem. Whenever a row is inserted or deleted my rule is divided into multiple rules which is tedius to manage and also causes the formatting to appear incorrectly in some cases. I have the table defined as a named table in the name manager and I use that name for the range in the "Applies to" in conditional formatting, but as soon as I choose apply the name is converted to the current range which becomes several seprate rules and ranges as soon as the table is modified.
Formula to define which rows are highlighted =$F5<>$F6
Range data applis to after chosing the tables name and clicking apply =$A$6:$R$12266
I am using Excel for Mac 2011. I am trying to conditionally format the cells that apply to each row in the table with the exception of the grand total (listed as the bottom row). Depending on the filter applied by the user, the number of rows can go from 1 to 10. I have seen where some people have applied based on whether the cell showed a sum of some component in the source data. I am looking for this within the Mac version and have not found it. Do I need to write something in VBA to format it after refresh?
Below is some code I am trying to run. What I would like to do is select a certain "data row" in the pivot, and apply some conditional formatting to that. It works just fine until I reach the .colorindex = 3 line. It says I'm getting an application/object defined. how to fix this? I'm on Excel 2007. This was fine on 2000!
pvtCurrent.PivotSelect "'% Dist'", xlDataAndLabel With Selection With .Interior .ColorIndex = 36 .Pattern = xlSolid .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic End With
With .FormatConditions.Add(xlCellValue, xlBetween, "0", "0.97") With .Font .Bold = True .ColorIndex = 3 End With End With End With
I am running office 2007. I am using conditional formatting in a pivot table to highlight rows where the value in the last column meets a particular criterion. However everytime I update the table the formatting gets lost. I have looked through all the threads I can find to establish if there is some VBA code that I can use to reapply the required conditional formatting after each update
I am having trouble getting some conditional formatting to apply to all cells in a column in a pivot table. Currently, the conditional formatting is only applying to the top level items in the pivot but is not applying to the lower level items. I can see why it is doing this. the range in "Applies to" is only specifying the rows that contain the top level items. I tried to change the range to D10:D647 but, it reverts back to just the top level items. How to get it to apply to everything?
I have a 1000x1000 cell grid on one of the worksheets in my workbook where each cell contains one of the following four possibilities:
1) Blank 2) A string that is not defined in a lookup table (*lookup table = a named range on a different sheet) 3) A string that exactly matches an item in the lookup table 4) A long string that contains an item in the lookup table (which can be found with a FIND function, for example)
I would like to apply conditional formatting to my 1000x1000 grid, to color each cell according to the lookup table, where the last column has the name of a color that I can match with my conditional formatting setup.
I have solved everything except for No. 4).
2) is taken care of by using "Format only cells that contain" with "No Blanks"
My solution for 3) - using "Use a Formula to Determine Which Cells to Format" - uses =VLOOKUP(A1,lookup_table,2,FALSE)="fill color name" So, for every different color I want to use, I have a different Formatting Rule in the Conditional Formatting dialog.
But 4) is tricky, because VLOOKUP can only return the result for a specific cell value. If my cell contains France;Germany;Italy, I'd like the color to be according to what I set for "France" in my lookup table. Or, if my cell contains Germany;France;Italy, I'd like it to be set based on what I decided Germany is in the lookup table (i.e. "blue").
You can notice that one thing that is consistent is that I separate my "sub-strings" that are contained in the lookup table with a semi-colon.
So, one way might be to see if FIND finds a semi-colon, and then grab the string that goes before that character position.
I setup a table with a column titled "Type". Each value under column "Type" defines the type of row it is: "Section", "SubSection", "SubSubSection"
I wish to create a set of conditional formatting rules that apply to data rows in this table, each rule controlling how cells within a whole row should be formatted, according to the value found in "Type", for that row.
Rule1: [@Type]="Section" -> fat red line on top of cell. Rule2: [@Type]="SubSection" -> thin black line on top of cell. Rule3: [@Type]="SubSubSection" -> dashed black line on top of cell.
I can't seem to make this work.
How can I leverage the nice column names, and the "@"-this row designator, within a table to create conditional formatting rules that apply to all the cells within a row, in the same way one can refer to in table formulas?
I am using Excel 2010. I have a pivot table where I want to highlight the ENTIRE row where a certain cell value equals something.
In essence I want all the Material Subtotal Rows highlighted "Orange" But as you can tell from the picture below I am having issues with the Body of the Pivot table. I have the formula checking to find whenever it finds the word total to highlight it.
The example below is showing how I need the row to be formatted. I can get the Data (Units) section formatted no problem. It is just the other part of the pivot table that I cannot format.
For the columns from Material to SAP # I have been trying to use Dynamic Name ranges using the Offset function. However, excel turns that Name range to a range and if I filter the pivot table, it adds extra ranges to the Applies to box and starts to really mess it up.
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:
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.
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...
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 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?
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.
