## Conditional Formatting - Coloring Entire Row

Nov 29, 2012

## Conditional Formatting Based On Entire Row

May 20, 2014

I am trying to apply conditional formatting to one cell based on the values of cells in a row.

This is what I have at the moment

E3 = TODAY()
E4 = TODAY()+90

If any date in the row falls between E3 and E4 i would like the font in another cell to turn red (in the example below A11 should turn red if any date in B11:J11 is between E3 and E4).

This is the formula I've been trying:

=AND(\$B\$11:\$J\$11>=E3,\$B\$11:\$J\$11=E3,\$B\$11

## Conditional Formatting Only Top Line Of Cell

Feb 1, 2010

I have a worksheet with conditional formatting applied. My formula works to change the cell color, font color, and strike-through the font if a "yes" answer is indicated. It all works well EXCEPT that the font color and strike-through ONLY apply to the top line on my cell.

Each cell has a title line, and a few paragraphs in it, with separations between the title line and the paragraphs. I kind of like having the title line a different font, but when it's time to strikethrough I want ALL of the text struck through.

## Conditional Formatting Entire Rows Based On Specific Columns?

Mar 25, 2014

I have been trying to find a way of formatting an entire row based on the contents of cells in each column. However i come unstuck when trying to make the column dynamic. Below is an example:

Month
2010
2011
2012

[Code]....

The idea is that i say current year is 2011 and all rows where C contains an a will turn green. What i would like to achieve is that when i change current year to say 2012 the conditional formatting adjusts so that it looks at D instead of C.

## Excel 2010 :: Pivot Table Conditional Formatting - Highlight ENTIRE Row

Aug 16, 2013

I am using Excel 2010. I have a pivot table where I want to highlight the ENTIRE row where a certain cell value equals something.

In essence I want all the Material Subtotal Rows highlighted "Orange" But as you can tell from the picture below I am having issues with the Body of the Pivot table. I have the formula checking to find whenever it finds the word total to highlight it.

The example below is showing how I need the row to be formatted. I can get the Data (Units) section formatted no problem. It is just the other part of the pivot table that I cannot format.

For the columns from Material to SAP # I have been trying to use Dynamic Name ranges using the Offset function. However, excel turns that Name range to a range and if I filter the pivot table, it adds extra ranges to the Applies to box and starts to really mess it up.

## Conditional Formatting For Entire Row Based On Presence Of Any Text / Values In Column

Oct 19, 2013

I am trying to apply a conditional format to an entire row based on the presence of any value in the first cell of that row to format to a certain color. If there isn't something present in the first cell, I don't want it to change.

Everything I keep trying ends up highlighting the entire workbook.

I would like to apply the rule to the entire sheet but only have it highlight the rows which have a value/text in the first cell of each row.

I am assuming I should use the formulas selection for conditional formatting but I'm unsure of what formula would apply to this type of request.

## Combine 2 Cells With Line Breaks In Each Of Them And Keep Line Break Formatting?

Aug 5, 2014

I'm trying to combine 2 cells that both have text on multiple lines separated by line breaks. I want to keep the formatting so that when both cells are combined, line one from cell 1 and line 1 from cell 2 are on the same line in the new combined cell. This is easy to do when there is only 1 line in each cell but how do you do this for cells with multiple lines? Here is an example of what I am trying to do:

A
B
C

1
First Name:
Last Name:
John
Smith
123 Harold Street
First Name: John
Last Name: Smith

## Conditional Formatting - Two Different Fields Affect One Cells Formatting For Date?

Sep 16, 2013

A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.

## Conditional Format For Entire Row Upon Value Change

Sep 18, 2009

I can't figure out to place conditional formatting on a range at each change in cells in column A....ie. in column A, several rows will have the value "1", then several will have the value "2", all the way through "52"...sometimes there could be 4 rows with the same value, otheres there may be 5, or others even only 1.....so I need conditional formatting that says each time the value in column A changes, highlight all cells in that row one color and change that color at each change. Does that make sense?

## Conditional Format Entire Rows In One Go

Feb 8, 2008

I've got a pivot table that shows different activities their cost, budget and percentage complete amongst other things. I would like to use conditional formatting to turn the font of a whole row grey if that activity is a 100% complete (exactly more then 99,5% complete in this case). I can do this with conditional formatting by selecting the individual rows and then setting the conditions. Example: selected row =\$45:\$45, Formatting condition =\$J\$45>99,5%.
However I've got 1500 rows to do....how can I set this condition for all rows in one go?

## Conditional Format Via Code For Entire Workbook

Feb 17, 2008

I found code that I would like to use conditional formatting code as shown here. Here is the code just in case:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim icolor As Integer

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:A10")) Is Nothing Then
Select Case Target
Case 1 To 5
icolor = 6
Case 6 To 10
icolor = 12
Case 11 To 15
icolor = 7

## Excel 2013 :: Formatting Of Entire Worksheet Changes Unexpectedly

Jan 20, 2014

In Excel 2013 x64 (EN; CZ locale) I have this funny bug. I work on a large vba project and sometimes when I open it, every cell in every workbook that had default formatting now has this numberformat (shown as "Accounting")

"_-* #,##0.00 [\$Kč-405]_-;-* #,##0.00 [\$Kč-405]_-;_-* ""-""?? [\$Kč-405]_-;_-@_-"

its seems that this formatting is assigned to styles --> Normal and it just messes up everything (pivots, slicers...) and cannot(!) be undone.

I have made some routines to check for this error on workbook.open and workbook.close and I also have file versioning. I check for the error regularly on every worksheet change, but it never comes up, nor does it whenever I close the workbook, so Im having hard time detecting when it occurs.

Sometimes when I try to open the workbook its just all messed up. When I go trough the versions, couple of them back still has the error which means it was already saved with it.

All I could figure out so far is that it sometimes happens when I try to copy some cell and paste it elsewhere (but later it works fine)

I'm 99.9% sure that my code is not causing it by accident or purpose. Now I just found the problem on different workbook that might have been opened at the same time. If you're interested, have a look here [URL] ......

## IF Statement Using Formatting Criteria (NOT Conditional Formatting)

May 5, 2009

Is there "code" for different formatting in a spreadsheet so you can use an IF statement to do something like:

if(A1=blue background,"Yes","No")

or

if(A1=red text,"Yes","No")

etc.?? But replace "blue background" and "red text" with some sort of number code? I want to compile a list of the items that are formatted with certain background colors and/or text colors and then organize only those items into a chart.

## Conditional Duplicate Line Removal

Feb 16, 2009

I have a worksheet with several columns of data. In Col B are part numbers, in column D are dates. I wish to search through the data and remove all lines with duplicate cells in column B EXCEPT the line which has the latest date in colum D.

## Conditional Line Chart Color

Jun 26, 2008

I am trying to have the points and the lines connecting them on my line graph be two different colors depending on a value i put in a column next to the chart values.

For example:
x y Variable
1 5 1
2 10
3 16 1
4 5

The points where there is a 1 in the variable column i would like to make a different color from the other points.

I did an extensive search and all i could find was the following:

Sub myChartClass_Calculate()
Dim cht As Object
Dim p As Object
Dim V As Variant
Dim Counter As Integer

However, this uses the values from the chart data, not an outside variable.

It can probably be done in 3 lines but i have to do this for 9 different rows so was wondering if there is a way of combining the three tasks into one row
