Red(-ve)/Green(+ve) Text For Under/over Monthly Budget
I've devised a monthly savings sheet to allow me to track my savings towards a deposit on a house. My target is £xxx a month, but as I could contribute loose amounts of money I'd like to be able to display a field next to each month of how much over I've contributed or how much under I've contributed.

I'd like this to be represented as:- If I contribute more than £xxx for a month then display it as green text and calculate how much over has been contributed.

If I contribute less than £xxx for a month then display it as red text and calculator how much under the contribution has been. I'm really not sure how to do this, I would do it manually normally but surely there is a way of automatically representing it.

Conditionally Formatted Cells Which Turn The Text In Them To Red If The Value Is Less Than 40
I have a series of conditionally formatted cells which turn the text in them to red if the value is less than 40. This works fine.

Occasionally however a value of less than 40 will need to be entered along with the letter 'v'.

ie. 39v

I'd still like this to be coloured red, but it's obviously coming out as black.

Is there a way to sort this out?

edited to add : Im actually using a separate cell to enter the value 40 (as the value can change).

Editing Formula Shows Text All Red, Parentheses Color-coded
But the formula seems to be working properly.

I've got ALOT of parentheses, 5 nested IFs, 5 ANDs, 4 ORs. The ANDs and ORs are within the IFs.

While editing the formula, I can, at times, achieve the condition where the cell references become color-coded. Or at least some of them do. But, when I get to this point, I'm usually at a spot where I can see the formula isn't right.

I'm confused. What does it mean when my text is all red when I go to edit a formula? Did I hit some limit? Again, I don't get error messages and the formula seems to work properly.

Conditional Formatting (highlight The Cells Red )
i am trying to highlight the cells red in the b column if a3=d3 (if names match) and if b3<e3 (only if name is "a" should e3 be used to compare with b3). hope this makes sense. i've attached a sample worksheet.

i've tried =if(b3<e3, (vlookup(a3,d3:e33,1,false),true)...but does not work correctly. i need the average weight to remain constant according to the name when comparing, but if i drag the formula down to other cells, the average weight does not correspond to the name.

Conditional Formatting (column H Changes To Yes I Want The Background Of The Whole Row To Change To Red)
I have a spreadsheet where column H can be either yes or no. When column H changes to Yes I want the background of the whole row to change to Red.

e.g. Cell H4 contains the word no. I then change this so that it says "yes". I want the background of row 4 to go red. so A4, b4, c4, d4, e4, h4 all go red.

With the type of conditional formatting i normally do i can only get cell H4 to go Red by putting cell value = yes as the condition. I cant for the life of me think of a formula or way round of doing this.

Conditional Formatting - Objects (Red Arrow Points Down To Signify Negative Change)
I have two arrows:
- Red Arrow points down to signify negative change
- Green Arrow points up to signify positive change

These arrows look exactly like the Excel 2007 conditional formatting arrows you would apply to a cell - the only difference is that I have inserted them as shapes so I can float them over a graph.

GOAL: Corresponding with the graph, if a cell shows a (+) change, then I display green arrow and hide red arrow. Vice versa for a (-) change.

Conditional Formatting "1"=Black Or "Z"=Red In 1 Condition
I'm trying to create a formula in 1 conditional format rule. The goal is to check if al cel contains "1" or "Z". If the value is "1" the cell must turn black and if it is "Z" it turns red.
If this is not possible, I'd like to only turn it black.

I am not able to use vba and have only 1 conditional formatting rule left in my excel 2003 sheet.

Conditional Format Based On A Text Range Within A Cell
conditional format formula that is based on a text range within a cell. In my case, I would like to compare the low and high range when inputted as a number followed by the quotation marks followed by space then hyphen, space then number and ending in quotation marks. The quotation mark is being used to represent inches.

Like this in cell D14: 0.2” - 2.2”

I am using the following condition format formula which works for the strict case above.

HTML =OR(D16<LEFT($D$14,3)+0,D16>MID($D$14,8,3)+0)
However, there will be times when users using this spreadsheet may leave out the spaces on either side of the hyphen, or add more than one space between the number and hyphen. Also if additional digits are added, my formula above does not include all the digits in the results. I prefer to leave the quotation marks in...........

Conditional Format - Hiding Text With Shady Background
I'm attempting to use Conditional Formatting to hide text where the background is shaded. When the background is white, I can just set the text to white and it is invisible - no problem. However, when the background is set to anything else, and I set the text to the same color as the background, Excel LIES to me. It pretends that the text is invisible, but it still shows up in Print Preview and when it's actually printed. The Custom Format ;;; doesn't help me, because I need the invisibilization only under certain funky conditions.

Dates - Cells Turning Red
I have a column of dates and have been asked to turn a cell next to it green, orange or red but I don't think this can be done?

Otherwise is there a way to turn the background of the cell a different colour, am sure there is?

What I need is if for example the date in the column is 01.08.08 then up until 7 days I want it to turn green, between 8-10 days I want it to go orange and over 10 days it needs to go red. Is this possible?

Highlights The Check Box In Red
Just wondering if it is possible to put a check box with a macro say in cell C3 that when you tick the box it changes it to green as completed, but after a set time say 2 weeks the check box clears itself and changes the colour to red to highlight that its due again. Also when you tick the check box it inserts a date in another cell say D4 when it was ticked.

Reason for this is am trying to make a spread sheet with different products that require different testing frequency, some monthly some weekly and some fortnightly. At the moment we are just using a white board and staff just tick task completed problem is they need to check when last done especially when test required is of every 2 weeks and people forget.

If I make a spread sheet and it highlights the check box in red like I want to above at least it will give them a visual reminder that it is due.

Red Yellow Green Colors
I am trying to create a formula that looks at a spreadsheet containing training percentages for employees. I need to look at these percentages and based on the date that the person started I need to look at certain rules. First it needs to look at what has happened more recently , moving to a new department or promotion. Next it needs to use that info to decide which rule to use. Ex. the person started 90 days ago then they are subject to rule A. The training percentage then needs to be looked at to see what rating they have. EX. percentage < 90% but > 75% gives a rating of 1. percentage than 50% gives rating of 2. percentage < than 50% rating of 3. Rule B would contain different criteria. My problem is that I tried nesting IF statements but I need more than 7. When I tried to do this in VBA I couldn't get it to work.

Do...while Loop: Check Until So Many Cells Have Been Marked Red
i'm having a bit of a issue with a do while loop. It might just be my complete lack of understanding, but i'll briefly explain what I am doing before I show you the code. I am marking cells with what I consider an invalid type for that cell red. Well unfortunatley in some sheets the number of invalid types is so high the macro crashes. So my bright idea was to inclose the check statment into a do while loop, that will only check until so many cells have been marked red. So I created a public variable, assigned it a value of 1. I then assigned the macro that marks the cell red to also take y and add 1. So in theory (mind you what I take for theroy might be in my head) it should only run until the paramaters of the do while are met which in this case are do while y < 20.

y = 1
Do While y < 20
Set MyRange = Intersect(Columns(7), ActiveSheet.UsedRange)
For Each r In MyRange
Next r

That is the snippet from the program calling the function, and here is the function

Public Function CheckDate()
If IsDate(r.Cells) = False And IsEmpty(r.Cells) = False Then
y = y + 1
End If
If r.Cells < 1 / 1 / 1910 And IsEmpty(r.Cells) = False Then
y = y + 1
End If
End Function

what i'm doing wrong here? Oh and y is assinged as a public varaible, integer data type.

Disable Red X But Keep Enable File - Close Working
I want to hide all toolbars and disable the red X upon opening of the spreadsheet, and to restore the main toolbars upon closing. That worked perfectly. (when I used the black code -see below)
I added in the red code as i wanted to disable the red X as well to ensure that users will always close the EXCEL worksheet via a Macro button.

The Macro will save the spreadsheet and close the worksheet and the Private sub should restore the toolbars.

How Do I Write A Positive/negative And Red/green Function?
I'm trying to make a "weight-based" spreadsheet. I want to show a difference between numbers so if an item lost 5 lbs, there would be a "-5" and it would be in green font showing good.

For example, a box weighs 20 lbs and then drops down to 15 lbs. This would be a good result. So I would have 20 lbs in A4 and 15 lbs in A6 and I want to show the difference in A8. However, since I want the box to lose weight, I want it to show a negative value of "-5" in green font meaning it is good. And vice versa, I want it to show "+3" in red font if the box gained weight.

I can't really figure out how to get the signs working properly. I'm assuming to use an "if" function in where if the difference is a loss, show the negative sign and have it in green font. And if the difference is a gain, show the positive sign in red font.

If ( the cell in Column X is not longer RED)
Then (remove the row from Copy Rows Filled With Red)

In plain English, if the cell is filled with RED, it is copied over to sheet Copy Rows Filled With Red. Or if the cell is no longer filled with RED, it is removed from Copy Rows Filled With Red.
