# Conditional Format Cells With An If Statement

Aug 18, 2009

I want to conditional format cells with an if statement (something to that nature). I attached an excel file to aid in my question. Basically I want it to be color coded to alert users Red if no action is required because info is left out Yellow if info is available so take action Green if all is complete and nothing needs to be done.

If G2 does NOT have data then cell H2 has red fill
If G2 does have data then cell H2 has yellow fill
And finally if I2 is filled out cells A2:I2 are green filled

## Use Conditional Format With Match Statement

Dec 30, 2009

I have a list of 31 values in separate cells. The values are three digit letter codes. Here is an example of 5 of them:

ATL
GMI
WOB
COI
PTS

What I am wanting to do is have a Conditional Format to change the color of the cell to Pale Blue if the value equals another cell that is within a range.

## How To Use Conditional Format For Countif Statement

Feb 25, 2013

In s74 I have the formula

=COUNTIFS(C:C,"Holiday Inn Express Limerick",I:I,1)

And it gives me a count of 21. Is there a way where I can use conditional format to highlight those 21 instances?

## Take Logic (IF) Statement And Implement It As Format For Array Of Cells

Jul 17, 2013

I have a list of data for each year dating back 10 years and some of lists had entries that weren't available so the cell showed up #N/A. I searched and replaced them with 0 but when I graph the data it skews my graph. I was wondering if it was possible to take a logic (IF) statement that says if the cell = 0 then take the average of the next and previous data points so the graph looks smooth. i.e. =IF(G444=0,(G443+G445)/2,G444) This gives me the correct number i want, but i want to apply it to all my lists like a format if possible.

## Looping & Conditional Format: Finds A "J" It Will Apply Conditional Formatting To A Row Of 4 Cells Directly Adjacent?

Feb 9, 2009

I need to run a loop through a column of values (attachment col B) and when it finds a "J" it will apply conditional formatting to a row of 4 cells directly adjacent. The attachment is a theoretical before & after.

## 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%:
=IF(INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D\$38)*34%)>0,LARGE(\$D\$3:\$D\$38,INT(COUNT(\$D\$3:\$D
\$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))

## Conditional Format Cells Containing Numbers And Letters - Ignore Cells With Number Only

Jul 11, 2014

I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.

## Copy Down Cells After Conditional Format

Nov 13, 2008

I conditionally formated a spreadsheet to delete all repeats. Now I have my rows numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 9 15, 20, 26, 36 (no specific order because the number of repeats were random). I inserted a new column (A) and want a running set of numbers (1,2,3,4) starting at A4. The only problem is that when I put a 1 in the A4 box and try to drag down in the bottom right corner of the cell with CTL+Click, it copies the number 1 all of the way down. What do I do?

## Conditional Formatting (format All Cells)

Dec 12, 2008

I have two colums A and B with a lot of data and want to use Conditional Formatting:

Cell Value Is
equal to
=\$A\$2 \$A\$352

What formula do I have to use to format all cells (colored) in the colum B with any existing value in between A2 and A352.

THE VALUES ARE WORDS

## Count Of Conditional Format Cells

Dec 9, 2009

I have a large spreadsheet which I require people to regularly complete. Due to the complexity of my business there are 180 columns, each of which has a variety of rules towards its completion.

I have used conditional formatting to check as many of the rules as possible (e.g. if somebody enters that delivery is required then the columns for delivery address cannot be blank).

Each column has the same conditional formatting but can have 1,2 or 3 rules. Min is always 1.

Most columns are fairly unique conditional rules.

There is a variable number of rows each time it is filled out (i.e. people add rows as required) but they copy and paste an existing row so conditional formatting is copied as well.

All conditional formatting rules use the "formula" setting and nearly all use many "AND", "OR" statements to make all the necessary checks.

If a cell is found to have failed the validation checks (e.g. is blank when should have an entry, has an entry when it should be blank) then it highlights the cell in red.

I now want to have a count of the number of "red" cells to show me quickly if it has been completed "correctly" or not.

I have written the vba code to check all the cells but cannot find out how to record if the conditional formatting is being used or not. "colorindex" returns the original colour of the cell not the conditional formatting.

## How To Conditional Format Cells With Text And Dates

Aug 4, 2014

I have a range that contains dates, with some cells within containing text (e.g. "TBC" or "planning will occur wk42"). I have basic rules as below:

- highlight red if older than today
- highlight green if today or in the future

The problem I have is that the cells that have text are highlighted green which I don't want. I also don't want to have to go through the range removing conditional formatting from each of those cells each time I copy over new data. Is there a way of telling excel to not use conditional formatting on those cells that contain text so I can manually highlight as I need? Some have text as that is how I receive the data.

## Conditional Format Formula Based On Two Cells.

Apr 9, 2009

I want to create a conditional format formula which is based on values in 2 cells.

Example:

Cell B1 = 100
Cell C1 = 50

I want a formule for cell A1 which turns red for exmaple when B1 is higher then 85 and Cell C1 is lower then 85. Only in this case the conditional format should work.

## Conditional Format Every Odd Row / Excluding Blank Cells

Nov 15, 2012

conditional formatting. I am using the code below to conditional format every Odd row with a background/border.

=MOD(ROW(),2)=1

I would like to know how to modify this, so that it only applies the format if the cell in column A on that specific row contain data and doesn't format blank cells.

## Apply Conditional Format Only When Cells Are Active?

Mar 31, 2013

I was wondering if is possible to apply a conditional format rule to a range of cells only when certain other cells outside of the range are the active cells. eg row C4-J4 has a conditional format to identify duplicates from range C5-C10, but I also want the same conditional rule to apply separately and uniquely if the active cell falls within the next active range D5-D10. So basically only apply conditional formatting separately and uniquely as the active cell moves its way across the columns?

## How To Conditional Format Based On Adjacent Cells

How do I create a CF if a cell is blank (in my case represent no sales) i want to have it yellow (ex. C2)

But if it has two consecutive blank cell i want to CF with Red. (Ex. F3)

But i also need to exclude blank cells when we we have no previos sales of that item (Ex.B3).

## Conditional Format - Formula For Blank Cells

Jul 1, 2012

I am using a conditional formula to compare if a cell in column A is higher than a cell in column B. If a cell is blank the cell is formatting. I am trying to highlight only cells with numbers. Any formula to place in the conditional format formula that will evaluate the cells excluding a blank cell?

ie: grapes and pears should be highlighted because value in column B is less than column A but the conditional format is highlighting apples also where apples should have no highlighting because the value in column B is none or blank.

A B
oranges 2.49 3.25
grapes 1.99 1.89
apples 1.00
pears 1.11 1.03

## Conditional Format - Highlight Cells If They Are Duplicated

Aug 27, 2013

Two things in Conditional Format, any formula to highlight cells if they are duplicated, but the next set of duplicates in another color? i.e.

If that isn't possible just the formula to highlight A To C would be great

So Cells A1 to C1 (red) and cells F! to I1 (Blue)

A1 500
B1 500
C1 500
D1 500
E1 650
F1 750
G1 750
H1 750
I1 750

## Conditional Format: Ignore Blank Cells

Feb 5, 2007

Excel 2004 for Mac

I'd like to give a conditional format to a range of cells so that only one cell in the range has a gray background. The condition must include three criteria:
1) The cell cannot be blank, AND
2) The cell's value must be the minimum in the range, AND
3) The cell's value must not equal any value preceding it in the range.

My own attempt looks like this for cell J8 in the range C8:AF8:
=AND(NOT(ISBLANK(J8)),J8=MIN(\$C8:\$AF8),J8\$C8:I8)

Problem: This condition works great for all values entered EXCEPT ZERO. When J8 is the first zero in the range, if it is preceded by a blank cell anywhere else in the range, it fails the third criterion (J8\$C8:I8) because Excel treats the blank cell as though it's a zero. Result: no gray background.

How can I get Excel to "ignore" blank cells.

## How To Count Conditional Format Colour Cells

Dec 27, 2008

Below I have an example from A1 to V1 which have 3 conditional formatting
conditional format 1. if value is 0 then colour red and font white
conditional format 2. if value is from 1 to 10 then colour blue and font white
conditional format 3. if values 11 to 25 colour green, font black

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUV11230507801011121314150170192002523

From the table above I want to count the cells which are in 3 different colours.
Result: Red=6 cells
Blue=7 cells
Green=9 cells

## 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

## Conditional Format To Identify Formula Cells

Jun 16, 2006

This should be pretty straight forward but the solution has escaped me so far. I have some formulas that ratably spread monthly budgets across the life of a program. Ocasionally these budget formulas are hard keyed over with a value which overrides the ratable budget formula. I would like to conditionally format all cells that contain hard keyed values so they don't get inadvertently copied to new budget lines.

## Count Conditional Format Cells In Date Range

Apr 30, 2009

Hello, we have a stop light spreadsheet for status with several different projects. In each row there are conditional format status green - good, yellow - needs work, red - bad...based on data from another tab.

There is an "overall status" column that pulls the worst color that exists for a given row.

=IF(COUNTIF(F1:V1,"r")>0,"R",IF(COUNTIF(F1:V1,"y")>0,"Y",IF(COUNTIF(F1:V1,"g")>0,"G","")))

There is also a date for each row. Now we want to pull the worst color in the "overall status" column for a date range...and display that on a separate summary tab.

For 4/1/09 thru 4/15/09 - pull the worst color from the "overall status" column from that date range.

## Conditional Formatting To Format Cells On Several Rows Below According To The Day In 2007

Sep 8, 2009

I´m having aproblem with Excel 2007 about Conditional Formatting. I have a row of Dates for example 02-01-2009 03-01-2009 04-01-2009 , etc in different columns.

Then what I want to do is use Conditional Formatting to Format cells on several rows below according to the day (if its weekend paint red, if not, dont do anything). I'm using the "Use a formula to determine which cells to format" and the condition is (supposing the cells with dates are A1 to C1)
=WEEKDAY(A1:C1) > 5 .

So with those 3 dates provided lets suppose Januar2nd is not a weekday, so the outputIwant is: Red White White, (Next Row) Red White White, etc for several rows.

Now what I think is not right is it only works for the row in which I have the cursor so its like: (Lets imagine I selected 3 rows on which I want to see that output) Red White White (The row in which the cursor is works fine), but the next row goes Red Red Red and the third the same.

## 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.

## Excel 2007 :: Copying Conditional Format To Multiple Cells

Nov 5, 2013

I'm a 2007 user. I am trying to conditional format a range of F1:J10, where F1 will be conditionally formatted relationally to A1. G1 is relational to B1. H2 relational to C2, etc., all the way down to J10 relational to E10. My conditional format formula in cell F1 is >A1*2 (will format F1 as orange). I want to be able to copy the conditional formatting over so the formula in J10 for example would be: >E10*2 (will format it orange).

I omit the "\$" in the conditional format formula in an attempt to prevent it from being absolute. But every time I copy the conditional formatting over to the other cells, the formula within those cells remains identical to the formula in the original cell.

## 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
Date
Jan
Feb
Mar
Apr
May
Jun
Jul

[code]......

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.
