Change Userform Textbox Back Colour If Contents Are Percentage

Jul 14, 2012

I need to change the backcolour of some textboxes on a userform that is populated with percentage figures from a sheet, ie:

10% (a positive percentage) textbox backcolour = red
-10% (a negative percentage) textbox backcolour = green

Below is some code showing my attempts up to now, but obviously I can't make it work.

VB:
Private Sub Textbox1_Change()
If Me.Textbox1.Value < 0 Then
Me.Textbox1.BackColor = vbGreen
Else
Me.Textbox1.BackColor = vbRed
End If

VBA Code To Change Font Colour Of Cell Referenced Letter Strings Within Range Of Cells

Jun 13, 2014

I am working on a spreadsheet for work, and have managed to do everything I need to so far but I need to colour specific letter strings, certain colours within a range of cells (each letter string will only appear once on each sheet)

The strings I will be looking for vary depending on data entered so I will need to cell reference them

The strings that need colouring are in cells with other strings that must stay black (They cannot be separated from other strings due to the nature of the grid)

I need some strings red, some green, and some blue.

These changes should also apply to the whole workbook not just one sheet.

Is there a way to do this with the VBA code.

Variable Locked Cells Dependant On Cell Change

Jan 12, 2010

I'm trying to make a spreadsheet more secure to prevent unintentional changes.

What i'm looking to do is to lock all cells so no changescan be made unless the user clicks column A.

Column A should remain unlocked and when the user clicks it i would like the entire row unlocked for editing (but only after column A is clicked)

I will run a macro to lock the entire sheet again once the sheet closes.

Highlighting A Range Of Cells Dependant On Data In Any Of Those Cells

Jul 20, 2009

On the attached sheet I am trying to indicate that enough data has been entered by highlighting the entire column. Any 3 cells in Rows 7-13 and 18-36 will be filled in with any of the values from cells O6-O11 (hidden). When the total = 6 i would like to highlight the entire column to indicate it has been completed.

The aim is two fold: to ensure that the correct number of points is allocated in each race, and secondly to indicate which column is the next to be filled in (as human error sometimes misses the column and adds the points to either the previous or next columns). You could call it idiot proofing the sheet. At present i have the cells in Row 37 conditional formatted to show this, but would much prefer the entire column to highlight.

Conditional Formatting Dependant On A Range Of Cells

May 21, 2009

On attachment, I am trying to highlight values in column AA dependant on any values appearing in range AF4: AQ8 less 15 minutes. eg at present the value in AA29 is 13:22. I would like this cell to highlight as it is greater than 15 minutes before AH4 at 13:25.

The purpose of the sheet is to highlight any times in column AA that fall within 15 minutes of the start of a major meeting. These major meetings are pulled from another sheet, and a drop down box is used on that other sheet that then transposes the major meeting times to this sheet. I have tried an "Or' statement in a conditional format, however an error message appears around not using a range in a conditional format.

Locking Text In Cells But Not The Ability To Change Colour Of Cells With Mouse Click

Mar 5, 2013

Locking text in cells but not the ability to change colour of cells

******** width="234" height="60" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0"
marginheight="0" vspace="0" hspace="0" allowtransparency="true" scrolling="no" id="aswift_0" name="aswift_0" style="left: 0px; position: absolute; top: 0px;">*********>

I have a spreadsheet where I can change the colour of a cell by clicking the mouse, I also have text in many of the cells.

What I need to do is protect (lock) the text so that no one can change the text in any of the cells, but I still want to be able to change the colour of the cells by clicking the mouse in that cell.

Cells Need To Change Colour

Oct 23, 2008

I have developed a profit loss sheet for the office I work for. What i need is to have either cells change colour or the numbers in the cell change colour depening on the value in the cell.

What I was thinking is if the number is over 15% of the sale price the cell or number should be green, if the number is under 15% it should be black, and if its below 0% it will be red.

Compare Worksheets - Change Colour Of Cells To Indicate If Found Or Not

Sep 26, 2012

I need to compare 2 worksheets, one containing a list of IP adresses that need to be checked (interfaces), and another containing a list of IP addresses that have been checked (Scanned hosts), there are over 100000 scanned host entries.

I need to search the "Scanned hosts" worksheet to ensure that all of the IP addresses listed in the "Interfaces" worksheet have been scanned. I then need to place an entry next to the IP address on the "interfaces" worksheet to indicate the check date and the name of the person who checked it. It also needs to change the colour of the cells to indicate if it has been found or not found.

The code I have written so far (from piecing together different threads from MrExcel), at first glance, seems to work perfectly. However, if I replace an ip address in the "interfaces" worksheet, with one that I know does not exist - it still marks it as found.

Interfaces;
IP Address
System
Date Checked
Checked By

1.2.3.4
fred bloggs

1.2.3.5
fred bloggs

[Code] .....

Scanned hosts is just a list of IP addresses and text (168000 rows) in a single column. Format is xx.xx.xx.xx ^IP^^^^Jul 29 2012 08:01:29:000PM

Sub Compare()
Dim X As Long, CurrentRow As Long, FindRow As Long, WS1 As Worksheet, WS2 As Worksheet

Set WS2 = Worksheets("Scanned Hosts")

Having Cells Change Their Contents According To What The Contents Of Other Cells Are

Mar 25, 2008

I have a column in my .XLS whose contents I want to change depending on what the contents of the cells of a different column are. However, I only want two cells from the same row to be dependent on each other. So, for example, if $A$1 reads "1" then $B$1 should read "apple" and if $A$2 reads "1" then $B$2 should read "apple"; if $A$12 reads "3" then $B$12 should read "pavement" etc.

Change Formula Range Without Changing The Contents?

Aug 21, 2012

I'm using the formula =SUMIF(F18:F18,"LY",G18:G18), =SUMIF(F18:F18,"KT",G18:G18), and so on.

I want to change the range to: =SUMIF(F7:F18,"LY",G7:G18), =SUMIF(F7:F18,"KT",G7:G18), and so on.

I can do it manually, but it's 20 rows.

Is there a way where i can change the formula range on the first and copy it down, without also copying the initials, (etc. "LY") ?

VBA To Change Background Colour In Free Form Depending On Text In Cells?

Apr 3, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with several freeforms. I would like them to change backgroundcolour, if the content in a cell is equal to another cell.

Basically I would like my shape "Freeform1" to change backgroundcolour to RGB (0, 180, 0) if Sheet1.Range ("A1") = Sheet2.Range("D3").

If it's not the same content in both cells, I would like the freeform to remain unchanged, that's RGB (79, 129, 189).

This should happend automaticly, so I don't have to click the shape to make it happen.

Excel 2007 :: Clicking Cells To Change Colour Format And Mirroring

Feb 24, 2012

(Using Excel 2007)

What would be the quickest and most efficient way of doing the following:

Example

Sheet 1: clicking once, twice, three times in the following cells to change the fill to Red, Yellow, Green respectively (in Row 22, COLUMNS E H K N Q T W Z AD AG) and mirrorring this format/fill on:

Sheet 2: , mirror the selected fill on sheet1 in E22, H22 , K22 in in E3:N3 respectively example E22 (sheet1) is mirrored now in E3 (sheet 2); H22 (sheet 1) is mirrored in F3 (sheet2) etc etc.

I have 35 tabs formatted in the same way - each tab, as with Sheet 1 is linked to a different row on sheet 2 in the same range as is sheet 1 and would need to replicate the mirorring on Sheet 1 to each of the other 34 tabs.

Clear Contents & Change Color Of Cells

Nov 3, 2006

how to clear contents and change colour index of cells.

This is for a booking system. The current VB codes allows bookings to be made by entering a reference number, dates of bookings and room type and bed type. When the VB codes are executed, the cells corresponding to the details entered earlier, would fill the booking table with the reference number and change the colour fill (e.g. yellow) to indicate that the slots are booked. Please refer to attached sample.

However, I do not know how to delete the booking. I would like to assign a cell for user to enter the reference number that needs to be deleted. So when the reference number is entered into that cell, user could execute a function which will clear the contents and change the colour index to none for that particular booking with that reference number(s).

Attached is a sample of the problem.

Set A Range And Copy Contents To Another Worksheet

Jul 7, 2006

I have a workbook with lets say 10 sheets. 9 of the 10 sheets are identical as far as layout, they just hold different information for different employees. I need to get a range of cells that are NOT empty and copy that data to the 1 different sheet (summary page). A6 through A25 is where the data is going to be, but all those cells may not be filled up, so I want to drop the empty cells from the range. So If only A6-A15 are filled, then those are the only ones that get copied.
ALSO (dont you love that) I need to take that number range and have columns A, F and I as well. So if I have A6-A15, I will need the data out of F6-F15 as well.
