Conditional Format Cells In Jan - Dec Columns Based On Next Column Data?

Jan 29, 2014

Wondering if it is possible to conditional format cells in "Jan"-"Dec" columns based on "Next" column data?

What I need is (lets say fill colour to differ) in one cell per row, based on latest input and "next" data.

Month Avg


So for example:

row2: May is latest input so need fill in cell +2("next" column data) from may. In this case July

row3: Feb is latest imput and "next" also 2. Result should be Apr

row8:May is latest input, "next" is 6. Res should be Nov.

Finally, only one cell per row to be highlighted so need to overwrite colour fill when new data input in a cell already colour filled.

Conditional Formatting - Use Info From 2 Columns To Format 3rd Column

May 24, 2014

conditional formatting in Excel. I have two columns with pertinent information. I need to know the following and format accordingly:

1. Is the number in column A positive or negative?
2. Is the number in column B less than 0.05 or 0.10?

I would then like Column C to just be highlighted a certain color depending on the combination... there are 5 possible combinations and I would like the cells to be formatted so that:

1. Positive and less than 0.05 - Bright yellow
2. Positive and less than 0.10 - Pale yellow
3. Negative and less than 0.05 - Bright green
4. Negative and less than 0.10 - Pale green
5. This "combo" just means the criteria wasn't meant... which is possible b/c sometimes Column A may have text instead of a number of b/c the number in column B is not less than 0.10. If either of these is true, I want the cell to remain blank.

Conditional Formatting: Format 3 Columns Depending On Certain Value From Another Column

Mar 26, 2009

I want to format 3 columns in excel depending on certain value from another column.
By example: I have the columns A B C completed with some text. On the column D it will be the numbers 0 or 1. If the number is 0 the background color from A,B,C columns shall be Green, if the number is 1 the color shall be red.

I have tried in conditional formatting with the formula =$D$1=0 but the color of the columns are changing only depending on the value from cell D1. I don't know what is the correct formula. For column A1 I want to check the value from D1, A2 - D2, A3 - D3,...,An - Dn.

Conditional Format A Row Based On Changing Values In One Column

Jun 27, 2013

Is it possible to format a row of cells (B7:KX7) depending on the value in column (G7:G1000) changing?

For example column G might have the following value entered into them.


So all the rows containing the letter A would be formatted one colour, then it would notice it changed to B and format all the rows with the letter B in, then C etc... The letters would always appear in blocks of 10 or more (representing students in a group) so it wouldn't go A,B,A,B,C,D,E

I am not bothered about the letter being tied to a certain colour, it just needs to change when the letter changes. I'd have no more than 10 different variables in this column, meaning no more than 10 different colours to format. Formatting would be black text with different coloured backgrounds.

Format Cells Based On Conditional Count

Feb 15, 2010

I have a drawing register that contains drawing reference numbers in column D. When a new revision of a drawing is issued it is added to the bottom of the list. What I would like to do is any previous revisions to be greyed out and struck through.

The conditional formatting
= COUNTIF($D$1:$D$100,D1)>1
works well but strike through all duplicates, I need the most up to date left without the format until it is superceeded

How To Move Data In Various Cells To New Columns Based On Search On Primary Column

Feb 4, 2014

I have a sheet which I need to arrange and it looks like -

Column A
Column B
Column C
Column D


the values in Column B, C , D , E & F need to be in new columns based on what we have in Column A associated with "1"

Output should be -
Column A
Column B
Column C


so whatever is in Column A associated with "0" should remain in place whereas whatever is in Colimn A associated with "1" should get added to the new columns. 0 and 1 resembles the 1 Records which are used as a split to normalize the data.

Conditional Format: Alternate Row Shading Based On First To Letters In The A Column

Oct 27, 2008

I have a price list from a friend. The price list has to have every other row shaded. This part is no problem with the conditional format command.

The real trick, at least to me, is the background shade of the row is based on the first two letters in the left most column.

For instance:

Column A


CP rows would alternate with one color while FL rows would alternate with a different color and FI rows would alternate with another different color. All other rows would have no shading.

MacOffice Excel 08 is used so no VB code can be used.

Multiple Conditional Format Conditions Changed Based On Another Cells Value?

Jun 12, 2009

A1:A6 have numeric values 1 to 6.

I want the conditional format values to change Based on the value in Cell B2.

If the value in B2 is "old", then I want these conditional format conditions for A1:A6. Numbers between 1-2=green text, 3-4=orange text and 5-6=red text.

IF the value in B2 is "new" then I want the conditional format conditions in A1:A6 to change so 1=black text, 2-3=green text, 4-5=orange text and 6=red text.

I know how to do multiple conditional formats but i have no clue how to change multiple conditions based on another cells value.

Conditional Format - Highlight Cells In Column That Have Entered Numbers Rather Than Formulas

May 29, 2013

Col A - budget items (description)
Col B - budget dollars
Col C - actual dollars
Row 10 - summation Cols B and C

When the budget is prepared the actual dollars in Col C are equal to the budget dollars for all items. For instance the formula =b2 is placed in cell C2. As time passes the user records actual dollars in Col C for each item by entering the actual amount directly into the cell. Actual dollars do not become known all at the same time, so that Col C will contain a mixture of formulas and entered numbers.

How can I highlight the cells in Col C that have entered numbers rather than formulas.

Note: I've managed to do it for one cell ie for Column B by replacing "If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B", "J" & i).Select with "If Range("J" & i).Value = "Closed" Then Range("B" & i).Select" This works but only colours in cell in column B, how do i do this so it colours range of cells

Excel 2010 :: Conditional Formatting - Highlight Values Based On 2 Columns Of Numerical Data

I'm having issues with Excel's 2010 conditional formatting. Seems easy to use, but I'm trying to highlight values based on 2 columns of numerical data. Example:

Column F:

Column L:

I would like Column L to highlight values that are greater than Column F in green. If they are less than Column L then highlight them in red.

Seems I was able to do this with Excel 2003, but I don't understand the 2010 version.

Conditional Format Based On A Conditional Format

Feb 9, 2010

I have five fields that have a conditional format applied to them: (see attached).
Columns J, K, L, N and O. These conditionals highlight if a minimum number is entered. Ex. Minimum pushups for a 30 y/o male is 27, if a 26 is entered it highlights red. The total score (where I need this to perform) is calculated in column Q. It will format red if the total score is below 75 but what I can't figure out is how to make it format if any of the previous minimums have not been met.

Ex. In cell L4, his crunches were 25 (a automatic failure -- red formatting). Now the total score is above 75 so it calculates as passing (green), but I need it to highlight red regardless because of the minimum not met in cell L4.

Conditional Input In A Cell Based On Data In Two Different Cells And Other Values

Dec 4, 2009

I have lot of data in three columns like this. The first column is "Name", the second is "Comment" wherein I want the macro to write some comment, the third one is DOB. The problem is that the names in column 1 repeats many times. I want a macro to write in column B "either Old or Older or Oldest" based on the Name and DOB. Thus David with DOB 13 Sep 1982 be marked Oldest in Column B and David with DOB 25 Aug 1988 be marked Older and David with DOB 24 May 1990 be marked Old. Similarly William and Rita should be marked either old or older or oldest. As the data are enormous I do not want to refer the actual name in the programming. I want to call them using a variable in programming.

NameComment DOB
David 25 August 1988
David 13 September 1982
David 24 May 1990
William 24 March 1980
William 25 July 1987
William 13 August 1989
Rita 17 July 1990
Rita 24 April 1989
Rita 13 June 1988
The example file is attached

Sum Cells In A Column Based On Multiple Criteria For Neighboring Columns

Jul 1, 2013

Example data:




Basically I'm trying to write a formula that will sum the total of the numbers from column B but only where the month equals June AND column 3 says "Yes".

So the answer would be 101, because rows 2 and 5 are the only rows of that table that meet all the criteria, and the sum of their column B cells would be 101.

I thought I was getting there with Sumproduct and Sumif but I'm now drawing a blank. There is a little extra complexity in that I'm actually pulling the month value from a set of cells elsewhere, but if someone can solve the puzzle above I hope I can do the rest on my own as it's just locations of data to pull from other worksheets really.

Hiding Columns Based On Other Column Data

Feb 27, 2008

I'm trying to hide columns based on information in another column. If that column contains "A" or "B", hide columns "U" through "W". If it contains "A", "B", "C", or "D", hide columns "V" through "W". Etc, etc., so on and so forth...

I've snipped the code I found earlier and modified it to (what I thought) was correct for my application, but it doesn't seem to do anything. (btw, should I get an error if it doesn't run correctly?)

Here is the code as modified:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Address = "P:P" Then

If LCase(Target.Value) = "A" Or LCase(Target.Value) = "B" Then

Columns("U:W").EntireColumn.Hidden = True

ElseIf LCase(Target.Value) = "A" Or LCase(Target.Value) = "B" Or LCase(Target.Value) = "C" Or LCase(Target.Value) = "D" Then

Column Availability Based On Other Columns' Data

Jun 7, 2007

In the sheet I'm currently working on I have a column (column C) that uses a validation so that users can select from a number of call types (data tracking in a call center). I allowed for an "Other" option, with a free-form column (column D) dedicated to the "other" reason in case the list doesn't cover the type, but I'm running into a problem where people use the other column to describe call types already listed. Is there anyway to lock the Other column (column D) unless Other is selected in the drop down in the Call Type column (column C)? The sheet I'm working with contains confidential data so I can't post it, but if this isn't clear enough I can draw up a mock sheet.

Changing Column Data Based On Another Columns Focus

Mar 4, 2014

I have 1 sheet called Setup which users enter their character name, their class, and their race, additionally the entire workbook manages data for up to 9 individual characters.

On another sheet called C|R|E, I have tasks listed that are based on each class type and each race type that are available. Currently there are nine classes and four races. Currently on this sheet each class and each race has its own individual data lists and such, and formulas are done in a way that user inputted data can be entered anywhere, but wont count unless the class and race match those selected on the Setup sheet. To keep the sheet short in appearance I used command buttons to hide/unhide classes or races not in use by the user.

What I was wondering is (and this could be hard to describe), can data in one column be changed to reflect data based on another column's focus? I will explain in more detail.

Column B contains the task information for each Class and Race. For example Cells B13-B51 for one class, Burglar. Columns D-L is where users enter data to show if the task is completed or not. In this example lets say the users first character listed on the Setup sheet is a Champion. What I want to do is check the Setup sheet Char 1. Then based on what Char 1 is selected as on the Setup Sheet, C|R|E B13-B51 data is changed to reflect it, IF Column D currently has focus. If Column E gets focus then B13-B51 changes based on the class selected on the setup sheet for character 2. and etc.

If this can be done I can remove the 13 different sections and have it down to 2 sections, one for class, one for race. For now I am using check boxes to hide classes and races they are not currently using, but would like to move all classes into one table and all races into one table to they dont have trouble with columns they have to skip over currently.

This is a sample of how I am currently working on the C|R|E sheet, the full code is much much longer since I am using so many command buttons.

Conditional Format Based On Even / Odd?

I selected the columns and formated them to all be blue... thats the color I want for even, but now I can't figure out how to set a condition that checks for odd numbers and changes them to red. I now have a count of even/odd for all records, and even/odd for the last 30, this provided some very interesting results.

Excel 2003 :: Conditional Format Top / Mid / Bottom 33% Of Cells But Ignoring Blank Cells

Mar 25, 2012

I am trying to conditionally format the top middle and bottom thirds of a range of data. Problem is, that the range needs to be flexible as sometimes there may be a maximum of 36 cells with data, but sometimes there may be less (so there are blank cells in the range that need not be counted). The methods I have tried always include the blank cells, and so it is not equally formatting the thirds (as it includes the blanks cells as part of the bottom data)....

Here are the 2 methods Ive tried so far using excel 2003)
Top 34%:
$38)*34%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D
$38)*67%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D
$38)*100%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))
