try explaning this again....Also conditional formatting will not work...
Looking for a formula in excel to do this---
I have a lottery numbers system in the 3 digit and 4 digit
numbers...In row A we have the 3 digit that were drawn about
3000 ---3 digit numbers and in row C we have also 3000 numbers
for the 4 digit ....All we need to do is Highlight All the
even numbers and make them RED font---in the 3 and 4 digit rows...
Is there a way to do that?????
123---------4429--make the 2red in the 3 digit row and 442red
in the 4 digit row.
033---------5579--nothing in this row
I have two columns. The first one (A) contains cells that have different Fill colors. The second column (B) contains text adjacent to the colored cells. I am trying to change the color of the text in the second column (B) to the corresponding color in the adjacent cell in the first column (A). I don't think conditional formating works well in this situation. I believe the solution would be some sort of macro.
I have font color white in blank cells in column E and I (from row 5 to row 245) so the visitors will not see the text. If any of these cells become yellow (color code is 6), the font color will become black so visitors can see the text alot far better than white. I've tried this code myself after this post but nothing happen
I am wanting to be able to find the last row of data (range changes on a monthly basis) and change the colour of the font to white for the entire row. I don't want to delete the row as contains totals but want the font not visable.
I'm trying to use Excel to keep team standings for a baseball board game. I had no problem calculating wining percentage. Finally figured out how to calculate 'games behind.' Now I'm wondering if there is a way to change the font color of a team name based on their wining pct?
A typical row contains: A2(Team Name), B2 (Wins), C2 (Losses), D2 (Pct (B2/(B2+C2)), E2 (GB). Is there a way to use the IF function to return the 'Team Name' in green if D2>.500, 'Team Name' in red if D2<.500, and 'Team Name' in black if D2=.500 ??
I am trying to figure out what the formula would be to change the font color if the entered number is less than the quota.
I'm making a spreadsheet for work that each of the reps will punch in their daily numbers, and, for example, if there quota was 70 and they are <70 than the font will turn red, and if greater or equal to 70 it will turn green.
macro that will change the cell color based on text? I have a list of titles in column B. Everytime the word 'Car' is found in this column, I would like to change the font color in columns C-G to the color white within the same row.
This appears to be so simple, I've searched the forums and have found almost the right VB code but not quite. I have a 3000 row spreadsheet with various columns. Column M can either be PASS, FAIL, REJECTED, IN PROGRESS or NOT ASSESSED. I need the rows (A to M inclusive) to change colour and text colour dependent on this condition.
I almost had an answer with Select.Case but I couldn't get the formula to work with text, only numbers.
I have a user that was recently upgraded to Excel 2003. He has a problem when changing font color in a cell. Anytime he changes the color of the font to red and then clicks another cell the color reverts back to Black. Now when he clicks on the cell it displays the color red in the formula bar but no in the cell. it also displays the correct color in hte print preview screen. this happens no matter what Excel file he is wokring in.
Is there a macro or code snippet that can change the color of the font while i am typing in the cell. Means that if the font color int he cell is originally RED, i can type and change it to another color using VB code.
Using conditional formatting I can change the font color (to blue) of a cell if it meets a certain criteria. Now what I would like is to display a message when the color changes to blue. The cell range is E26 to E40.
I'm trying to get the font to turn red in column G if it is greater than or equal to column I, and get it to turn orange if it is between 80% of I and I. This is what I've got so far.
Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) If Range("G" & Target.Row) >= Range("I" & Target.Row) Then Range("G" & Target.Row).Font.ColorIndex = 3 If Range("G" & Target.Row) >= Range(("I" & Target.Row) * 0.8) Then Range("G" & Target.Row).Font.Color = 45 End Sub
I have this code for 10 Command Buttons to change the font colour. This is part of a much larger piece of code, but to simplify it, I am just using this Sub ForeColour() Sheet1.Cat1.ForeColor = &HC0& Sheet1.Cat2.ForeColor = &HFF0000 Sheet1.Cat3.ForeColor = &HFF0000 Sheet1.Cat4.ForeColor = &HFF0000 Sheet1.Cat5.ForeColor = &HFF0000 Sheet1.Cat6.ForeColor = &HFF0000 Sheet1.Cat7.ForeColor = &HFF0000 Sheet1.Cat8.ForeColor = &HFF0000 Sheet1.Cat9.ForeColor = &HFF0000 Sheet1.Cat10.ForeColor = &HFF0000 End Sub
In Excel 2003, this code works instantaneously, but I am trying to run the same code in Excel 2000 and it takes 10 seconds. Is there any way that I can speed this up in Excel 2000?
The original file was created in Excel 2003, but I have created a new file in Excel 2000 with the 10 buttons on it and the code and it still takes 10 seconds.
I was just wondering how I can type in a different colour. I.e. I have a document and I want to type in random cells but I always want to be typing in red, or blue etc. Hoe can I change the default text color?
Using excel 2007. In a A table of marks obtained by a student. I want to get the content of the cell be displayed in a bigger font and in a particular color when i point to it. When I point to a cell content the display should be in a color of my choice say green and the font be greater than 20 pixels.
Any way to change the font color of a chart axis when a checkbox is set to true.
let checkbox be checkbox5 and chart be chart5. What I would like to happen is that if checkbox5 is true then the font color of the horizontal axis changed to grey (RGB 166,166,166), if it is false then I would like the font color of the horizontal axis to be black (RGB 0,0,0). I also would like this macro to be run every time the checkbox changes, or the corresponding cell changes to TRUE or FALSE (it is in another sheet, say sheet2). This is the code I have so far but all it is doing is showing the chart as selected and not changing the font color. I would also like it to not physically select the chart, this is for a dashboard so the selecting of the chart throws off some of the visuals a bit, but not sure how to do change the chart values without selecting it.
I want the order size to be colored red. If the most recent order is larger than the previous order, I want the order size to be colored blue. If the most recent order is the exact same size as the previous order, I want the order to be colored black.
How would I make code that would let me "remember" the previous order size and the most recent order size, and let me compare them to conditionally format the font?
I have a button (shape) whose text value is linked to cell A1. (In other words, if text in cell A1 changes, the text on the button changes). A concatenation formula exists in cell A1 to "join" together a combination of text and cell values. The formula in A1 looks something like this:
="You have "&B10&" records that contain errors."
I'd like to set the font for the "&B10" portion to be a different color than the rest of the text string so that it stands out from the rest of the text. Obviously this can be done when the text is manually entered into a text box, but when using a formula to populate the text in the text box, it's all or nothing. I'm hoping to find a way to embed a separate font color within the formula string in A1 for just the portion I want to change? For example, all text would be regular/black, but the numeric value generated from cell B10 would be yellow.
I have a database which I want to send to my peers. I want to set a rule which will enable me to keep track of the data which are changed. For instance, in a cell if someone edit that number, the color will change from black to red.
I have a simple sheet that has columns I-K. My issue is that in column K I am dividing J/I. If both J and I cells have a "0" then I get the #DIV0 error. If both J and I cells are blank then I get the #VALUE! error. I need it so that if the cells in J and I have a zero in them then it places a 0 in K. But if both J and I are blank then it puts something else that I can have Conditional formatting change the font color so column K looks blank. I think the IF formulas I am try to use recognize blank cells as zeros as well.
