# Color After Depending On 1st Value In A Cell

Jul 3, 2009

I have another macro request.

I would like to ‘grey out’ a certain qty of cells depending on the 1st number in another cell. So 1st of all it would have to check in column B to see if there is any data and then check for the first number in that cell (there will be many numbers in the cells but we only need the 1st one (Ex.: B3 = “3 / 8 & 8”).

Then it should start counting from column D the found number of cells multiplied by 2.

Ex.: if Cell B3 contains “3 / 8 & 8” it will count 3 x 2 = 6 (3 cells x 2 = 6 cells)

Then, if after that count (now at I3), in the next cell over (J3) if the is data in the cell above (J2) then it should apply an Interior.ColorIndex of 15 for the next cells until there is no data in the cells above (if nothing after K2 the grey will be applied to cells J3 & K3 only).

## Changes The Cell Color Depending On How Many Clicks

Mar 13, 2009

The code changes the cell color depending on how many clicks you give it.
The code it self works fantastic but the problem i have is if i manually unlock the sheet every time i click any where in sheet it locks it again.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error GoTo Error
Dim I As Integer, I1 As Integer, ws1 As Worksheet

Set ws1 = Worksheets("36hr Plan")
ws1.Unprotect "muppeticity"

I1 = 40
For I = 5 To 25 Step 5
For I1 = 22 To 204 Step 13
Offset1 = 0
If Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1, I)) Is Nothing _
Or Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1 + 1, 5)) Is Nothing _
Or Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1 + 2, 5)) Is Nothing Then.............

## Highlighting Cell Color Depending On Text

Sep 15, 2014

See attached work book, it is an mot booking system that is all working fine except for one thing that I don't know how to change.

At the moment if you double click a cell in the test type column it enters the required data and turns the cell green highlighting the length of time and values this is all good but I am wanting the ones that start with n-side to turn yellow just so that we can see our own internal tests easily. It is control in the coding not formatting . Is there a way this can be done?

## Color Code Cell Depending On Which Name Is Presesnt

## Fill Color Depending On Content Of Other Cell

May 1, 2008

I have a template I have been asked to amend and I know I need to use Conditional Formatting I just can't crack the formula I need to use. Cell A2 will have either "CD" or "CW" or "IN" input into it

When user inputs either "CD" or "CW" into cell A2, I want cell G2 to have "Margin Movement" automatically displayed. When user inputs "IN" into cell A2, I want cell F2 to have "MV" automatically displayed, and I want cell G2 to be coloured in bright red fill. Then user is to go to cell G2 and input some text as a description, and I want the red fill to disappear once they have input something in there.

I thought I had it licked using IF statements for the "Margin Movement" and the "MV" cells, but I can't get the conditional formatting to work - I assume this is because the cells aren't technically "blank", as they have IF statements in them.

## Formula Change Cell Color Depending On Priority

Aug 29, 2012

My colleagues are working on multiple projects at once. The projects got different priority, so I'm looking for a formula that change the cell color if a person is working on it, depending on the project's priority.

For example if John is working on project: East(pri.1), South(pri.2) and West(pri.3). On East he got 5 remaining hours (cell E8). Then i would like that cell to turn red. For South green and West red.

## Change Color Of Cell Depending On Values In Another Range

Nov 22, 2007

I want to change the colour of a cell depending on its value, when compared to another row of data identiified by a value in another cell. To try an clarify:

b3 = 1 b5=4 Because b3 = 1 then compare cell b5 with the row g1 as b3=g1 then depending on its postion set a colour

h2= 2 h2:h5 = 7,8,9,10

## Changing Empty Cell Background Color Depending On Different Cell Value

Aug 7, 2014

I'm trying to create a tag with a color border. What I desire is to fill the BLANK cells around the tag, A1:D1 + D1:D19 + A1:D19 + A1:19 in a certain color based on the text value of the cell B11. There are 5 different values, such that if the B11 read Red Sox - the boarder is going to be red, if it reads Houston Astros it will be dark blue, etc..

I have a similar problem with changing the color of the cell based on the month. So regardless of the year, 2014, 2015, 2016, etc... If I use MONTH() function I can just get numbers from 1-12. I want Cell C16-C18 to be certain color depending the date entered in cell C17 such that for each quarter, months 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 they are different color.

I have had no luck with conditional formatting (and I also believe that it is good up to 3 cases only). I am decent in logic/programming language but have little knowledge with macro notation and especially how to run them in excel 2013. I do know how to start it alt+F11 and that I need to make sure that code is written under the specific sheet where my tag is located.

## Excel 2007 :: Changing Bar Series Color To Adjacent Cell Font Color

Aug 8, 2012

I am trying to use VBA in Excel 2007 to change bar chart series colors. I have found a few posts that link it to a cell background, but I'm struggling to find one that does the font color.

It would be great if I could change the bar chart series to match the color of the text in the A column, so that if I highlighted the value in A1 and changed the text color to orange for whatever reason, the chart updates the value of 1.2 to an orange bar (see below).

T. A1 B1

Sample 1 1.2

Sample 2 2.1

Sample 3 1.7

Sample 4 5.6

## Linking Object Color To Conditionally Formatted Cell Color In Microsoft Excel

## Color Cell Fonts Based On Text Color Of TextBox Controls On UserForm

Apr 11, 2008

I have got a userform with lots of controls,

One of the action's on a large group of the controls is the same but except for one number

here is an example

If TextBox107.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell. Offset(0, 53).Font.ColorIndex = 3
If TextBox108.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 54).Font.ColorIndex = 3
If TextBox109.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 55).Font.ColorIndex = 3

This makes a cell that correlates to the textbox red if the text in the textbox is red.

Now, I loads of these textboxes that all need to run the same code with just the Offset value one digit higher than the last and I was hoping I could create a loop to avoid a huge block of code but I can't work out how to make a constant that will +1 with each loop.

Also, can I assume that a loop will start with the control with the lowest number i.e. Textbox1 and then work its way through the rest of them in order?

## Setting Color Of Range Based On Adjacent Cell Color

Nov 1, 2009

This is probably elementary, but I'm struggling and would appreciate any help as I have very little excel VBA experience to draw from.

I have assembled code which changes the cell color based on a value change in Column A. Column A will contain many different groups of repeating values. This code works well and and I have been able to figure out how to limit the number of colors to only 2. The end result is each set of similar values in column A is visually grouped by one of two alternating colors.

The number rows in the data set is variable as the data set is extracted from SAP. The number of columns is fixed.

What I want to do now is set the cell color in columns B through F the same color that was assigned to the row in column A. So if cell A3 is set to colorindex = 6, then I want to set the range of cells B3 to E3 to the same color.

Here is the code I am using to set the color of the cells in Column A:

## Change Font Color Based On Adjacent Cell Color

Apr 18, 2008

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.

## Change Font Color If Cell Color Become Yellow (6)

## Color Cells Based On Color Of Preceeding Cell

Nov 18, 2007

I am looking for a very simple script that will achieve the following:

On the clicking of a button, Select and shade in a cell yellow, delete the yellow shading of the previous cell. The shading & selection should move up a column of cells, 1 at a time, in the following order:

From B10 to B9, then B9 to B8, B8 to B7 etc until the selection and shading is at B2. Once it is at B2 subsequent clicks will simply keep it at B2 (the top). Thus after 8 clicks the shading & selection should travel from B10 to B2, with only 1 cell being shaded yellow and selected at any one time.
