# Conditional Formatting For Range Of Cells

May 24, 2007

conditional formatting a range of cells where i need more than 3 conditions, so please see below and can anyone kindly construct some vba code for me to do this (And if you have time to explain how it works so i have a good understanding of this)

Range R6 to R299 contains delivery dates
Range AO6 to AO299 is = to the corresponding cells in Range R but formatted to show the Day

Cell AL1 contains a date which changes on a Thursday to show the following week commencing date.

What i am after is code so that Range AO6 to AO299 changes cell colour to the following criteria

less than AL1 (White)
Is between AL1 & AL1+7 (Blue)
Is between AL1+7 & AL1+14 (Green)
Is between AL1+14 & AL1+21 (Yellow)
Is between AL1+21 & AL1+28 (Pink)

## Conditional Formatting A Range Of Cells

Nov 26, 2009

I'd like my conditional formatting to format the range of cells red if the range K2:S2>H2. That is when the range K2:S2 are added together, and if their sum is greater than H2, format cells K2:S2 red.

## Use Conditional Formatting On Range Of Cells?

Jan 23, 2013

What I am trying to do, is apply conditional formatting to a range of cells (for example, A2:J2) based on whether the data in one of the cells (D2) contains "Yes" or "No". I would like the entire range of cells to be one color if D2 contains "Yes", and another color if D2 contains "No". If needed, this can be split into 2 different conditional formatting rules.

## Conditional Formatting Range Of Cells?

May 19, 2014

I am wondering if there is a quicker way to set up conditional formatting for a range of cells. In my projects, I have a range of cells N7:U16, where each row (7-16) would need to have a cell formatted based on a value in the cell adjacent to the range. I.e. the cell in range for row N7:U7 needs to be formatted based on the value in V7, and so on down for for rows 7 thru 16. Said another way, if the cell in the row range between n7:u7 = v7, then the cell in the range is uniquely formatted.

But I want to apply this logic all at once, instead of having to conditional format each row individual. The trick is that the cell with the value that I am comparing to is variable (i.e. V7:V16), but does correspond with the row I am comparing it to.

## Conditional Formatting Dependant On A Range Of Cells

May 21, 2009

On attachment, I am trying to highlight values in column AA dependant on any values appearing in range AF4: AQ8 less 15 minutes. eg at present the value in AA29 is 13:22. I would like this cell to highlight as it is greater than 15 minutes before AH4 at 13:25.

The purpose of the sheet is to highlight any times in column AA that fall within 15 minutes of the start of a major meeting. These major meetings are pulled from another sheet, and a drop down box is used on that other sheet that then transposes the major meeting times to this sheet. I have tried an "Or' statement in a conditional format, however an error message appears around not using a range in a conditional format.

## Conditional Formatting Over Wide Range Of Cells?

Mar 18, 2013

I am looking to write 'conditional format' to only highlight cells that are 2 greater than the cell in the previous column.

For instance:- cell F14 (which is 2 bigger than E14) and H23 (which is 2 greater than G23).

## Conditional Formatting For Cells That Do Not Contain Text Range?

Mar 24, 2014

I'm trying to create a conditional format that formats only cells that do not contain one of the names from a range of cells.

For example:
Cell O2 contains Florida
Cell O3 contains Texas
Cell range W1:W2
W1 = Florida
W2 = Arizona

In this example I want Texas to have a strikethrough, but Florida to be unchanged since Texas is not included in the list.

I keep getting an error when I try to do a format of text that does not contain =W1:W2.

## Conditional Formatting Of Cells Between Date Range

Sep 6, 2008

I looked through the format link: Conditional formatting page on Ozgrid and was unable to figure out what I want to do.

What I want to do is check a range of cells which have dates in them, and then if they are between such and such dates, they will turn a certain background color. But by "such and such" I mean, between the dates entered in two different cells.

So in the range of A1:A10, if any of those cells are between b1 and b2 then apply color1. If any of them are between b2+1 and b3, then apply color2.

If it's not possible tell me but I think it should be as I can do it with conditional formatting. I need to have 16 conditions though. What it is is a chart with projects in rows and dates in columns. The dates often change and I want to rearrange the entire schedule visually just by changing the date in another place. (I change the date in the target cell, what I call b1 above, and b2-10 are calculated based on that date). Hope that's enough information.

## Conditional Formatting - Colouring Percentage Of Multiple Cells Based On Date Range

Mar 12, 2014

I am trying to get a row of cells to highlight a percentage based on a date range

Below is an example of what my spreadsheet will look like, very simple for managers to read and understand but I am stuck on how i can get this to display the right way.

In the example i would need the Jan column to colour for a certain percent for 21 days and continue to feb for 26 days. Im not sure if this makes sense but this is what they are asking for. Colour bars to simple show the percent of days off each month.

Name Start Date End Date Jan Feb Mar

Dale 11/01/14 26/02/14 21 days 26 days

I have attached the spreadsheet for an example : Book1.xlsxâ€Ž

## Excel 2010 :: 3+ Conditional Formatting Rules For Cell Range Based On Formula From Other Cells

Feb 5, 2013

how to apply conditional formatting via VBA to a range of cells based on input from another range of cells. Obviously this would be easy in Excel 2010, but I'm still using 2003 at the office and it needs to stay in this format to be readable by other users:

For cells M8:EK8, my conditional formatting
condition 2: Formula Is =AND(\$E\$8>=M2,((\$E\$8-\$D\$8)>=(N2-\$M\$2))), color index is 40
condition 3: Formula Is =AND(\$F\$8<=M2,\$G\$8>=M2), color index is 39
condition 4: Formula Is =AND(\$H\$8<=M2,\$I\$8>=M2), color index is 40
condition 5: Formula Is =AND(\$J\$8<=M2,\$K\$8>=M2), color index is 39
and so on

The cells in the range M8:EK8 are blank, they only get colored based on input added to D8 to K8. If there is no input, then the cells should be uncolored.

## Conditional Formatting Conflict: Change The Cells Font Color And Bolding As Long As The Value Is Within That Date Range

Oct 19, 2006

I have two conditions setup in Options>View - Zero Values.", "style="background: #FFFFFF;padding: 2px;font-size: 10px;width: 550px;"");' onmouseout='GAL_hidepopup();'>formatting.htm" target="_blank">conditional formatting. The first is setup for alternate row coloring with this formula inside Conditional Formatting:

Formula is = MOD(ROW(),2)

My Second Condition is

Cell Value is between \$P\$10 and \$Q\$10. This sets the font bold and a different color. The two cell values are two dates. I want to change the cells font color and bolding as long as the value is within that date range. It works fine, but for cells that are on the row that is colored the second condition doesn't apply for some reason.

## 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 Formatting Against A Range

Apr 30, 2009

## Conditional Formatting A Range

Apr 13, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that has a table listing employee names in the far left hand column (A1, B1, C1, etc.). The table has a simple border - black line throughout.

I need the entire row for the employee to change to no border if the employee's name is deleted.

## Conditional Formatting For Range

Jan 8, 2010

Using the following conditional formatting formulas:

=(isblank(p99)) then the formatting of (applies to) C99:O99 will be in red and bold

=(d99="Prod.") then the formatting of C99:P99 will be blue and bold

but the results are not as expected. Is something wrong with these formulas?

## Conditional Formatting: Compare Range To Another Range

Oct 11, 2006

I was looking to use the VBA conditional formatting script posted on OzGrid and was curious if it would be easy to make some slight modifications.

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
Case 16 To 20 ..........................

I can see that Case is the number range referenced to change the background...However, would it be possible to have it read a cells value as the criteria for the color change? Currently, I would like it to reference values in range I2:M2 and anything matching those cells in range A4:E28 change background to icolor = 30. I'm just not sure what to replace Case with to make it refence cells I2:M2

## Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting Empty Cells Based On Full Cells?

Nov 17, 2011

Working in Excel 2007. I am using excel for a data log (basically) and want it to format all empty cells in a row yellow if there is data in column A

Basically, If i have a value in A2, I want any empty cell between B2-G2 to be filled in yellow (as an idicator to the inputter that the cell needs to be completed).

there is already conditional formatting on these cells, which i want to maintain for the non-empty cells. I also have "0" as a value, so I couldn't use the basic conditional formatting setting it =0, it highlighted cells with \$0.00, which i do not want.

## Conditional Formatting Using Named Range

Aug 15, 2014

I have a sheet called Quote Summary and a sheet called AssemblyBoms.

In the Bom sheet, I have a named range for QtyPer and a named range for unit price because these ranges are dynamic.

On the quote summary sheet, I want to format the cell (A9 and eventually A9 to A28 and so on), which contains a formula right now that only references a tag and does some equivalence checking

(=IF(AND(QSA>0,QSA=qty1a),assembly1,"")),

to have a yellow background if QtyPer>0 but unit price = "" or 0. I know the formulas for this, but it is not formatting anything. Attached workbook below.

QUOTETEMPLATEMACROTEST.xlsm

Conditional Formula for true:
="AND(qtyper1 > 0, unita1 = "")"

I typed it in without the = or "", but the formatting added those in for me.

I typed a number in the qtyper1 range and left the unita1 range blank to test it and no formatting has occurred.

## Conditional Formatting With Date Range

Feb 26, 2014

I have a column of dates in column M, and in A1 I have the formula =TODAY() for today's date. I would like to conditionally format all of column M (up to row 198) so that it turns orange if the date in M is before today and after or equal to 3 working days before the date in M.

I have this
=AND(\$A\$1<M2,\$A\$1>=(WORKDAY(M2,-3)))
But it doesn't appear to be working because it's highlighting dates after todays date.

## Conditional Formatting: Select Range Only

Mar 31, 2009

## Conditional Formatting With A Moving Range

Jan 17, 2010

I have a Conditional Formatting query where in essence I am needing to ‘make invisible’ a range of data by changing the font and background fill to white (and at the same time nullifying the effects of a number of other Conditional Formats). On the surface, this seems an easy thing to achieve, but the problem is, the range I need to apply this CF is a moving range and is dependant on a user changeable date.

Description of worksheet:

The sheet is managing shifts worked over 1 year by 21 people. The top 33 rows are a frozen (and collapsing) display area below which is a matrix of 365 days down and 21 people across. The TODAY button uses a macro to scan the dates and display todays entry directly beneath the freeze line of row 33. The date in M28 can be entered manually and after hitting enter, that dates data is now displayed under the freeze line. Also, using the spin button will increment or decrement the date in M28 moving the entire matrix up or down.

My query..........

What I’m hoping to achieve, is to display ONLY the data selected by the date in M28 (ie that shown under the freeze line, and for all remaining rows to be ‘whited out’, but as the user increments/decrements M28, then the “whiteout” range also needs to increment/decrement. I have whited out a second worksheet “example” as if I had selected 18 Jan (this sheet will not move as there are no buttons, but the data is still there under the whiteout).

I hope this is not TOO unclear, but I would be grateful if anyone could suggest a solution or even tell me if this is not possible – or indeed any other way of achieving the same result ( I had thought of hiding the rows below the freeze line, but the freeze/unfreeze operation would probably be too jerky.

## Conditional Formatting From Given Cell Range

Feb 12, 2013

I have a range of data on sheet1 say A1:A10 with random letters in each cell. On sheet2, I also have random letters and number in column A. What am trying to do is find a formula which if any of the data on sheet1 can be found in say A1 of sheet2 then shade the cell a given colour or if formula in B2 then show True otherwise false if not found. then do the same for the remainder of the cells on sheet2 which am assuming will be to just copy the formula in B1 of sheet2 or the conditional format in A1 whichever comes first.

## Using An Array/range In Conditional Formatting

Feb 21, 2007

I have this :

ColumnRow
1 7
1 27
5 3
5 7
5 31
5 35
5 39
5 59
9 7
9 11
9 31

I need a formula to use with conditional formatting that "lights up" the corresponding cells. So, in this case cells A7, A27, E3... should "light up".
Is this possible, or should I use VB?
