Changing Colors In Specific Cell When Conditions Met In Another Cell
Apr 22, 2014
I need to change the color of a specific cell when conditions are met in a different cell and it seems like it may be beyond the scope of simply applying conditional formatting. What vba code would look like in proper syntax to make the following statement true. IF cell value Q4 is >=cell value S4 AND cell value R4 is <100 Then cell Q4 turns red and IF cell value Q4 is >= cell value S4 AND cell value R4 =100 then cell Q4 turns green. it may also be useful to know that the "cell values" in this example will be dates and not straight values. this may be possible to do using conditional formatting, but i cannot find a formula that works.
Trying to format cells b9 through b 24 and cells c9 through c24 to change from white to a light grey color by clicking the mouse button once. so one click white, another click grey. The color grey I need is white, background 1, darker 25% in the autofill field in excel. I have search other forums they all lead to changing the code, I did this already. just copy pasted a code I found but all cells were selected to change a bright green.
I'm trying to have change if the date on it is passed "now()". I am already using the 3 conditional formatting fields and need this one and another one. Here are 2 problems I seem to be having.
First - the code below only works if I change the date on the cell. I want code to either work with Worksheet Active or any other way so the user does not have to redo the date’s everyday. Second - a record might have conditional formatting already. Is it possible for the target cell in this code can show this color while the rest of the row shows the color of the conditional formatting?
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim icolor As Integer If Not Intersect(Target, Range("G1:G2000")) Is Nothing Then Select Case Target Case Is <= Now() icolor = 39
so what will happen is that the number of rows will continuously increase as the groups of data (Labeled Group #) increases. The data within each group will vary from time to time so some groups may contain only one line while others may contain multiple lines. I have included an attachment that illustrates what I'm trying to achieve. When data is entered in Column A under "Q," the adjacent empty cells in Columns B-F (labeled "R"-"V") will turn red. This is the part I have (i.e. Group 2).
i'd like to use a macro to loop through a range of cells and change the interior color index based on the cell values (ex. if cell value < 10, set interior to blue, if cell value > 400, set to green) i'm trying a for each loop with an if statement but i keep getting syntax errors, i know this is probably a simple problem but i'm not experienced in vb,
I have the following Case statement that changes all the cells to the correct color, but does not change the Font color as specified in the Case. All the text is White (fcolor = 2) instead of just the 3 types of cells specified.
I have a large workbook, with multiple sheets. I would like to be able to select a name from a drop down menu, and have the cell color change for all entries of that name in my other sheets. I can do it manually, but it would be much cleaner and easier to have Excel do it for me. I have looked at other answers here on this forum and know that if it can be done,
I'm a average excel user, i know my way around it and kow common and basic formulee, VB isnt a strong point, but i am willing to attemp anything for this, let me explain
Lets say in colum A I have a list of items, in colum B i have a check box, currently the check box is red, if i tpye a x it turns green due to conditional formating. That works fine...onto the problem...
Lets say in colum A i have my items but they are repeated...eg A1, A145, A166, A122 are all the same item, what i want is regardless of where i place the x each check box under coloum B either gets a X and turns green, or just turns green, i dont mind...
I dont think conditional formatting can cut this, though i may be wrong. Ive tried to use the IF function under condtional formatting but ran into problems...
I am an Excel newbie and would like your help to develop the attached spread sheet. I would like the colour of cells A4 to H4 to change colour when the date in column B is plus 10 days and the same to happen to A5 to H5 so on and so on
I would also like the cells A4 to P4 to change colour when a quote goes to become an order an we enter data into J4 to P4 again the same thing to happen in subsequent lines as data is entered in the relevant line.
Basically I want a quote of 10 days or more to show as a different colour so that an employee can chase the quote. Once the quote become a firm order I want the cells to become a different colour again.
I have need of VBA code that will check collumn D, starting at cell 7 until cell 206, for when data that is entered starts with 100. When this occurs it will remove all of the data in that same cell except for the last 12 digits.
Here's an example.
When using our barcode scanner to capture a FedEx Tracking number the barcode captures the following:
Embedded in that long string of numbers (which are formatted as Text) is the tracking number. Specifically the last 12 numbers are the tracking number. However, FedEx varies this code at times so the last 12 numbers are the tracking number only with the raw data captured by the scanner starts with 100. Until I find additional conditions this VBA code will have to ignore all of data that is captured in collumn D starting at cell 7 until 206.
I have a spreadsheet that will contain about 5-15 rows with a letter "S" in the column. If this letter S appears in the column, I need its entire row to change font color to RED and then change that row's value in column L to a negative number. is there any easy way to do this?
I am in the process of reformatting an excel workbook to act as a review tool for different factors in a process. Part of my redesign includes the use of coding that creates different cell colors based upon the cell contents. The new workbooks will be used to handle existing data for this year. I have developed a process macro to open an existing workbook and copy and transfer the original data worksheet into the newly formatted workbook. The data gets transferred to the new worksheet and the resulting workbook is renamed and saved, Heres'' the rub... the newly saved workbook is missing all of the coding for the worksheets... apparently this is a MS bug.
Has anyone figured a workaround for this. One thought I had is to open both( new and old )workbooks and rather than move/copy , i would transfer the data using cell references.
I have 2 cells (B2 and C2) with date format, showing dates from a calendar. FYI, These cells are NOT in my Calendar.
Now, I need to write a formula for my calendar cells to check these two cells (B2 and C2) and change the color of the cells inside my calendar according to the date sindicated inthese two cells (B2 and C2).
I did this with numbers using conditional formating and it works perfect but doing this with dates is giving me a hard time. Is there a way to do this? below is a link to my excel file.
I am making some grids which will have a series of numbers in the individual cells. But I can't figure out how to change the colors of the digits. If I change one digit to Red; all the numbers in that cell change to Red. Whereas I would like to have them as Red,Green,Black,Blue,etc.
I have read the instructions for conditional formatting and I don't think that is what I need. I have 10 diff year 2005,06,07 etc. I want each cell with with a diff year to turn a diff color. Like I want 2005 to be red and 2008 to be blue.
I have number in cell (A1) = 100. when I enter number in any cell of column(B) for example (B1)=10. then in cell (C1) the result of (A1) - (B1) = (90) and if I add in cell (B2)=10 then in cell (C1) the result of (A1) - (B1+B2) = 80 .accumulatively in cell (C1). and any number in column (B), the result will be (A1) minus any number in column(B) accumulated in (C1)
I have number in cell (A1) = 100. when I enter number at cell (B1) = 10 then the result would be in the adjacent cell (C1) = (A1) - ( B1) = 90 and If I enter a new number in cell (B2) = 10 then the result would be in the adjacent cell (C2) = (A1) - (B1+B2) = 80 and If I enter a new number in cell (B3) = 10 then the result would be in the adjacent cell (C3) = (A1) - (B1+B2+B3) = 70 and so on. I want the result to be add automatically to adjacent cell in column (C)
when I copy a worksheet from one workbook to another, the colors on the sheet in the destination workbook, become dull/faded. They actually change from the original colors to some off colors. I copy by selecting the source sheet, hold down ctrl key, then drag from one workbook to another). Also, is there a way to get the sheet back to the original colors.
We have a workbook with over 20 worksheets, each sheet with one or more tables in it. Several people use the workbook and we have decided that when someone changes a cell, they should mark the changed cell by filling it with blue using Format Cell. We have then nominated one person at end of each week who will check all the changes made during the week and either approve or reject them. So her task is to find all the blue cells, check them and then take the shading off.
What I would like to do is to create a macro to help her. I would like the macro to automatically identify all the blue cells in the workbook and give her a list of these cells. I wonder if someone could give me direction on a couple of things:
1) The command in the macro that would return whether a cell is shaded blue
2) The way in which I could cycle through all the content of each worksheet. I'm thinking worse case I would have to write instructions to go to each sheet, and then do an outer loop to go through each row, and an inner loop for each column (and the number of active cells varies by worksheet) -
Within the Workbook events there is a "Before_Print", however I also need something like "After_Print" which does not exist (as far as I can tell).
I have several rows of data which alternate colors. When I print it I want to take out the fill (so as to save ink) - which I can do in the "Before_Print" event. [No problem.] However, once it is done printing I need to restore the alternating colors, but I cannot think of any event or trigger which would enable this.
I have thought through several things and the closest thing I can think of is setting up a timer. But there is of course no way to now how long to set it for. [Before/After Save also has the same "issue".]
i am using a set of VB codes that was kindly provided by "dr". Please refer to the link below.
Highlight-Select Start Date To End Date
However, I am facing problems on how to delete or unfill the cells that are "coloured and filled with booking reference name" (i.e. being booked by the user).
In another words, currently, once a booking is made, the blank slots would be coloured to red and would reflect the customer name in those slots (with the use of dr's VB codes).
Comes the next day, if that booking needs to be cancelled, would the user be able to "delete" that booking that was made (i.e. uncolour that slot plus remove the customer name) without having to automatically go unfill the cells and delete the text in the cells?
I am trying to write a macro that can copy the shading from another cell for me automatically. I would like to look for certain text strings within a serial number, and when found, copy that cell's shading in another cell.
I am using INDEX, MATCH to copy the corresponding value needed, but that doesn't give me the shading...
