Auto Highlight Row & Columns
i have a sheet with dates going from J1 to IV1, and names going from C7 to C360
What i am looking for, is when i hover over say Y118, it shows a highlighted line going from A118 to Y118 and Y1 to Y118
If this is not possible, would it be possible to do the same thing when cell Y118 i clicked
This would need to work for all posible cells within this range?
Largest Gap + Auto Highlight
I have this excel spreadsheet and I need to calculate the biggest gap between the numbers below. (The gap cannot exceed 9 rows)
8/31/07 - 47.32
9/7/07 - 52.41
9/14/07 - 50.63
9/21/07 - 48.72
9/28/07 - 54
10/5/07 - 51
10/12/07 - 48
10/19/07 - 55
10/26/07 - 58
11/2/07 - 85
11/9/07 - 116
11/16/07 - 127
11/23/07 - 200
11/30/07 - 169
12/7/07 - 156
12/14/07 - 143
12/21/07 - 152
12/28/07 - 160
Biggest gap: 152
I cannot manually do every single row (this excel is gigantic). Isn’t there some excel formula to do this for me automatically?
I tried: =MAX(B1:B18) – MIN(B1:B18). Here I get the biggest gap between B1 (47.32) and B13 (200), but this gap is bigger then 1 month = 9 rows, which it is not allowed to exceed.
I was able to calculate the gap by taking the difference between the MAX(B1:B9) and MIN(B1:B9) and then repeating this one row down at a time ( e.g. B2-B10, B3-B11, B4-B12, etc)
This of course takes up a lot of space but does the job. If a shorter way is possible then please let me know. If not then I only need one thing: I need the chosen rows with the largest gap between its max and min to be automatically highlighted.
Highlight/Flag Formula Cells Referencing Other Cells
I am trying to write a macro which highlights all the cells with any reference to other cell. The macro should highlight a cell with formula like = 3 * A25 but not highlight a cell with following formula. = 3 * 0.4535566. 'Hasformula' property is not useful here as it can't distinguish between above examples.
Highlight The Cells
I have a spreadsheet that I need a m acro for, that will look at cell C13, if it is a 0 (zero) then hightlight cell C1 yellow. And so on, if C14 is zero, highlight C2..
Also look at the cells below,
cell D13, if it is a 0 (zero) then hightlight cell D1 yellow. And so on, if D14 is zero, highlight D2..
Highlight Cells Using A Button
I am trying to use a button, that when pressed it highlights certain cells in a row
I have the following code
If Range("C20").Interior.ColorIndex = 3 Then
.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
This works fine, but when i press the button again it clears the highlighted cells back to normal but any highlighted text etc or conditional formatting is deleted
Is there a way of returning to what was there before the first press of the button?
Just incase it is pressed accidently etc, as there will be many rows with the same button
Highlight The Cells When Criteria Met
But it is not doing exactly what I want it to, and I am struggling to work out what I need to change to get it to do so.
I want the formula to do is look at a three Columns of data, and to highlight Cells in Column Y when the following criteria are met:
The Row is active (determined by the "Yes" part), that the Row is "Market Specific" and that there is more than one Row where these Criteria are met (this is where I thought COUNTIF would work, but it's not).
Highlight A Row Of Cells That Contain Same Date
I am trying to figure out how to highlight the row of cells within the column that contains the same date as the date in cell e:1 the date in cell e:1 changes daily because the formula says =today(). With that said, the column contains every date of the year so i would just like to be able to have the row, that contains the same date as the date in cell e:1, highlighted AUTOMATICALLY.
Cells Wont Highlight
I am having an issue with a workbook, when the workbook opens it runs through each sheet and protects it (allowing the user to manipulate unlocked cells). For some reason one sheet will not allow me to do that (in some respect). I can click on a cell, it will show me the formula at the top but the cell wont highlight showing you which one is selected. I have to use the named range box (top left) to see which one is selected.
All the pther sheets work fine. I have checked to make sure that they are not set to Locked (in the cell formatting).
the code that protects the sheets is.......
For Each ws In Worksheets
ActiveSheet.EnableSelection = xlUnlockedCells
Search And Highlight Cells ..
I have 3 worksheets A, B and C. Worksheet A and B have numbers in three columns. In worksheet C, column D, I would like a formula or conditional formatting which will search worksheet A for the number in column D and if it finds the same number as the one in the cell, it highlights the cell Green. I would also like it to search worksheet B and if the number is in worksheet B, highlight the cell Red. In no cases will the number be in both worksheets (A and B).
Highlight Cells Containing Certain Month
I would like to highlight the rows from Range A1:A200 that contain the month of October. The dates in this range are written as January 1, 2010, February 5, 2009, etc. I guess I just do not understand how to extract parts of a date. I have part of a formula that works if I place the exact full date in the code but I only want to grab the month so that all the October dates are highlighted.
This is what I have:
For Each cell In Selection
If cell = October Then cell.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 36 'light yellow
I would like to do this in vba and not in conditional formatting.
Highlight Non Used Mandatory Cells
I have made a spreadsheets wherein all the cells where data are to be entered are coloured yellow.Some cells are mandatory (coloured Green)wherein user have to fill data compulsorily & some are optional (Coloured grey) Since the file is big and sheets are arond 28, I want to attach a buuton which will be assigned a macro to do the validation work.
The macro will search all yellow cells & green cells and if found any of those cell blank will change those colour to red and shall also show a list where the cells are merked red (List will be in a pop up manner, printable, and shall show the name of the sheets & cell address)
Highlight Unequal Adjacent Cells
I am attempting to program a column of cells so that if say "B3" doesn't match the contents of "A3", then "B3" will be highlighted in some way, maybe with a color. I'm using Excel 2000 and I can't see a way in Conditional Formatting to accomplish this without having to program each cell in column "B". I was hoping to be able to click and drag down in column "B".
Conditional Formatting : Highlight THE CELLS
I need to hightlight from A1:A18
In the above cells I have values from 1 to 4
So I need to fill the cell with 4 different colours.
If cell equals 1 = Green
If cell equals 2 = Yellow
If cell equals 3 = Red
If cell equals 4 = Blue
What I do is highlight cell from A1:A18, clik on 'Format', 'Conditional Formatting', I've tried using 'Cells Value is' and 'Formula is'.
Highlight Duplicate Cells Between 2 Columns
I have a spreadsheet with columns A to W populated with data and 2470 rows
Column A has email addresses in it (2470 rows)
Column B has email addresses that are bad and are duplicated of those found in Column A there are only 345 of them in column B.
I would like to compare columns A and B and highlight the email addresses in column A that are also found in column B.
OR: If column A has a duplicate found in column B I would like the word delete to be inserted into column C of that row so I can review and then delete later.
Highlight Cells Meeting Condition
I have a spread sheet with the following data (starts from A1). Please note that a number of rows may not have the ShipmentValue and/or CustCategory:
OrderDate, CustName, ProdName, ShipmentStatus, ShipmentValue, CustCategory
I am trying to write a code which will highlight (say with Yellow Fill) those rows (Columns A:F) Where the ShipmentStatus = "Late" or where ShipmentValue is missing (i.e. blank). I have been able to get only as far as the code below and would appreciate your help in completing the
' This code will highlight those rows A:F in which the Shipment Status
' (Column D) = "Late" or the ShipmentValue (Column E) is blank
Dim MyRng As Range
Dim StatusChk As String
Dim RowCount As Integer ' Counter to count the # of rows
Dim ColCount As Integer ' Counter to count the # of columns
StatusChkCriteria = "Late"
Conditional Formatting (highlight The Cells Red )
i am trying to highlight the cells red in the b column if a3=d3 (if names match) and if b3<e3 (only if name is "a" should e3 be used to compare with b3). hope this makes sense. i've attached a sample worksheet.
i've tried =if(b3<e3, (vlookup(a3,d3:e33,1,false),true)...but does not work correctly. i need the average weight to remain constant according to the name when comparing, but if i drag the formula down to other cells, the average weight does not correspond to the name.
VBA To Copy, Highlight Cells Then E-mail.
I have got the following code that automatically copies a range of cells within the sheet i am on and then creates a new excel workbook then sends it to an e-mail address specified.
Is there anyway i can change it so that it copies the specified range (A1:K50) but then when it pastes that range into another sheet i would like it to highlight some of the cells yellow based on what i had higlighted on the sheet when i run the vba. i hightlight B6:E10 then run the VBA, i want it to copy A1:K50 into another sheet (as below) but then on the new sheet highlight cells B6:E10.
Highlight Cells Housing 1 Of X Numbers
I have tried a little bit of different conditional formatting but cannot seem to get what I want.
So then I found this code that will do what I want if I could get it to recognize the highlight.
For Each cl In Range("C:C")
If cl.Value = 202546 Or cl.Value = 102725 Or cl.Value = 192473 Then
Rows(cl.Row).Highlight = True
I want to be able to highlight rows that have certain numbers. When it finds the number it highlights it and goes to the next one and highlights it and so on. The numbers reside in column 'C'.
I changed Row(cl.Row).HiddenRows = True, To Row(cl.Row).Highlight = True. But it is not working.
Highlight Cells Found In List
I am working for a non profit humanitarian org and I am trying to modify an excel 2003 spreadsheet to change the formatting (color) in one cell based on the value of another cell. Obviously this is easy with conditional formatting, except that I have a list of around 25 unique values and formats.
Could anyone point me in the direction of some code that can do this? I am a relative novice to Excel when it comes to VBA and scripting things.
Color/Highlight Cells Value That Matches Another
On sheet "Inventory List" is the value there is a value in cell A2. If that value is found in sheet "FHS Locker List" I would like the box highlighted. (I can do the highlighting) I would like to copy the formula down for cells A2-A900. It would be looking in cells K3-K900 in the "FHS Locker List" sheet.
Highlight Cells If Cell Has Dependents Or Precedents
I am working on a tool to highlight cells that have dependents but no precedents. This would be useful for me as I build a number of models and handle models built by others.
I want to be able to easily see where model inputs are and inputs will always be cells that do not have precedents and do have at least one dependent.
I have played with a number of methods with very little success. Is there an easy way to test whether or not a cell has a precedent or dependent within the workbook?
for cell in range
if cell.does.not.have.precedent and cell.has.dependent then
cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 35
I found this in an older post but I cant get it to work at all.
Dim rngA As Range
Dim sngA As Single
For Each rngA In Selection.Cells
If Len(rngA.Formula) > 0 Then
On Error Resume Next
sngA = rngA.DirectDependents.Count
If sngA = 0 Then
rngA.Style = "NoDeps"
Numeric Values From One Sheet To Highlight Cells On Another
I’m trying to assign building and office keys to various personnel, by appointing different classification levels to each set of keys given out. Very similar in the way an administrator would assign permission levels to individuals.
•Is there a way to pick up an array of non-sequential numbers from one sheet (values 1 -36)
•Find those values which are assigned to columns laid out as a table,
•Then highlight those found values
I’ve attached a dummy sheet to illustrate my question.
I have not attempted coding this because I wouldn’t know where to start.
Theoretically is this even possible?
Vlookup Macro: Highlight The Cells In The In The Workbook
I have created a macro to open a workbook from another workbook and do a vlookup against the data in the source workbook. I then wanted to highlight the cells in the in the workbook that I'm doing the vlookup from, and to unhighlight any empty cells. I did this all without code using the macro recorder so that I could then study the code and learn something.
If Two Cells Match (date), Highlight A Third Cell...
I have a row D2:ND2 where each cell contains a date from October 1st through to September 20th). I also have a column NI3:NI13 that contains various dates such as Easter or bank holidays. Would it be possible to use conditional formatting (or something else) to highlight all rows below D2:ND2 if the dates specified in each cell in D2:ND2 match any of the dates in column NI3:NI13?
Format (highlight) Cells With 'If' Function With 2007
I have a workbook that I am working with and I need to formatting the cells so that they will have multiple formulas and I am not sure how to make it work.
Sheet1 Column A is titled 'accounts'. There are 2700 rows under Column A that are being used. Column A is already formatted with a Vlookup formula so I can't add another formula in these cells.
What I need to do is highlight many ranges of these 'accounts' cells depending on their account numbers. I need to input this formula in a separate location on the spreadsheet. For example; If 'accounts' is >=110031100000 AND <=110031100099 then highlight those accounts in 'RED'. and If 'accounts' is >=1200454000000 AND <=120045400099 then highlight those accounts in 'green' and so on...I am not sure how to word the if statement. The formula must reside in column D or greater and not in A.
Am I going about this the wrong way. What I am trying to do is isolate the cells (accounts) that I have referenced on another worksheet so that I can visually notice any accounts that may have been excluded.
Highlight & Move Cells Based On Criteria
I have 3 data series, which are each futures contracts. Each of these futures contracts (the one on the left expires soonest) has an expiration date and as that date approaches, one will need to replace it with a new futures contract (the data series immediately to its right) having a later expiration date. This process is called a ‘roll’. I am seeking to create a continuous data series, which will incorporate the appropriate ‘roll’ based on two rules.
The rules are as follows:
1) Where the volume of the 2nd contract exceeds the volume of the 1st contract for 10 consecutive intervals, roll on that date.
2) Once the roll date has been identified, roll at the specific time interval on that date that has the highest aggregate volume (between the 1st and 2nd contract).
I have laid out the original data in a tab entitled ‘original data stream’. This is how the data will appear at first. In the tab entitled ‘Roll Example’, I have shown what I would like to happen to the original data streams. You will notice that in this tab, the data series are the same as the previous tab, except that they are not aligned as before. The data series to the left ( cells B4: D808) expires ..................................
Highlight Used Cells For Pivot Report Selection
Below is my code to create a pivot table. The data is located on a 2nd sheet named 'Data2' in columns B & C. As you can see the range is already defined. How can i have this as a variable which holds the current address of the automatically selected - occupied cells in columns b-c? So in order a macro that can.
1) select all occupied cells in colums b-c
2)paste this range as an address in d1
3) assign a variable which has the range for the pivot table macro to complete its work.
ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Add(SourceType:=xlDatabase, SourceData:= _
"Data2!R1C2:R27C3").CreatePivotTable TableDestination:= _
"'PivotReport'!R18C2", TableName:= _
ActiveWorkbook.ShowPivotTableFieldList = True
.Orientation = xlRowField
.Position = 1
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").AddDataField ActiveSheet.PivotTables( _
"PivotTable1").PivotFields("QTY"), "Sum of QTY", xlSum
ActiveWorkbook.ShowPivotTableFieldList = False
Application. CommandBars("PivotTable").Visible = False
Compare Cells In Different Workbooks & Highlight Differences
I am trying to find a way to compare the cells (example: D4:D12 to the same cell range in another workbook. If the value in D4 is less than D4 in workbook 2 highlight it red and if it is greater highlight it green. I also want a loop to go through the specified range. Of course, the scale of the worksheets is much greater.
Another issue I foresee, is that the workbook name that I am comparing to changes every week, so is there a way to handle this change easily?
Highlight Row If Cells In Row Meet Multiple Conditions
I have a spreadsheet of actions/tasks. I have a column with the expected completion dates of each action and another column stating whether the action/task is "open" or "closed". I would like to highlight any actions that have gone past their expected completion date and are marked as still being "open". Obviously i dont want any row that are closed to be highlighted. I know the =TODAY()- B1>0 formula will highlight the dates cell that have expired but how do i extend this formula to what i require.
Highlight Cells Matching Selected Cell
I would like to select a cell inside my workbook and when it is selected it automatically highlights similar value cells in the same workbook. Is that possible? A Look at the attachment should give you a much better idea as to what I am talking about.
Highlight Differences Of Cells In Multi Column & Row Table
- A record is created
- The record is modified once/several times
- Only the original record and the last modified record needs to be kept
- The differences between the original and the last record need to be highlighted in the spreadsheet.
- This has to be repeated for a whole bunch of rows
Currently I am manually deleting the rows and eye-balling the changes. I'm using Excel 2002. I have ASAP Utitilities as well. Although macros are cool, I was hoping I could try with an Add-in or software.
