# Copy Formatting Using Equal Sign

Jun 28, 2006

This seems simple...

If I let A1=8

If I fill in the cell green, either manually or with conditional formatting, and then copy and paste the cell into A2, A2 is now green with the number 8 inside.

However, if in A2 I type "=A1", A2 still has the 8 but is no longer green.

Is there a way to copy the formatting of a cell by setting it equal to the original?

## Get Formula In A1 Without Equal Sign?

i want formula in b1 to get the formula in a1 without Equal Sign

A1=(A2*A3)+2

Reults B1 should be (A2*A3)+2

## Place The Name Before Equal Sign

Oct 26, 2009

I'm trying to simplify a section of my code by naming a long string that is repeated. I tried by simply place the Name before equal sign (=) and also putting Set before the name. Both failed though I've seen both methods used successfully in other code. Am I having a syntax issue of some sort?

Private Sub ConditionalRowDelete()
Dim NumRows, iLine As Integer
ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Select
NumRows = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
Dim CircuitType As Range
Set CircuitType = Range("C" & iLine).Value
For iLine = NumRows To 2 Step -1
If Range("A" & iLine).Value > "6999" Then
Rows(iLine).EntireRow.Delete
End If
Next iLine
For iLine = NumRows To 2 Step -1
If CircuitType = "VOIP" Or CircuitType = "Customer Care" Or CircuitType = "Dialup" Or CircuitType = "IRU" Then
Rows(iLine).EntireRow.Delete
End If
Next iLine
End Sub

## How To Add Equal Sign Automatically In The Entire Worksheet

Jun 11, 2009

Let me know how can a worksheet pick automatically equal = sign before manually feeding data

for example:

A B C
1 5+3 2+1 9+2
2 2+3 8+6 4+7

I want 8 in cell A1 and 5 in cell A2. I do not want to manually assigning/adding equal = sign to get sum 8 in cell A1

Jan 17, 2008

For Exempel

A1=B
A2=1
A3="="&A1&A2

I have even tried with concernate and indirect in A3 but no difference there...

I want A3 to return =B1 but it only returns it in text but i want it in form of a formula. Is there a formula that returns text directly into a formula or an easy way to do this?

## Prevent Copy From Using \$ Sign

Jul 24, 2006

Get a SUMIF formula to work, which it now does, but the formula puts '\$' signs in the range, so that when it copies it, it does not change the range. I have got round this, by defining 12 separate ranges. But it does make the code rather long winded. Anyone know how to put the formula in without the '\$' signs? There must be a way to put the formula into the first cell, and copy it across?

Set Rga = Range("b6")
Set Rgb = Range("b6").End(xlDown)
Set Rgd = Range("\$e\$6")
Set Rge = Range("\$e\$6").End(xlDown)
Set Rgc = Range(Cells(6, 2), Cells(6, 2).End(xlDown)).Offset(0, 3)
Set Rgh = Range(Cells(6, 5), Cells(6, 5).End(xlDown)).Offset(0, 3)
Set Rgi = Range(Cells(6, 5), Cells(6, 5).End(xlDown)).Offset(0, 4)
Set Rgj = Range(Cells(6, 5), Cells(6, 5).End(xlDown)).Offset(0, 5)
Set Rgk = Range(Cells(6, 5), Cells(6, 5).End(xlDown)).Offset(0, 6)
Set Rgl = Range(Cells(6, 5), Cells(6, 5).End(xlDown)).Offset(0, 7)
Set Rgm = Range(Cells(6, 5), Cells(6, 5).End(xlDown)).Offset(0, 8)
Set Rgn = Range(Cells(6, 5), Cells(6, 5).End(xlDown)).Offset(0, 9).............................

## Equal Value & Formatting Between 2 Cells

May 13, 2009

Is there any way to make one cell on a separate sheet appear EXACTLY the same, including formatting and values?

As in this for example:

Pieces of Paper (Blue)

I would like to keep the formatting for (Blue) , color and bold, but I have not figured out how to do this.

## Conditional Formatting Using Does Not Equal?

Jun 5, 2012

I tried using the following in Cond Formatting:

When the Cell in F10 does not equal w/a, I want the text to be BOLD. I tried this and it didn't work...

=\$F10w/a

also tried

=\$F10"w/a"

Neither worked.

## Decimal Sign Replaced With ';' Sign

Dec 8, 2009

I'm trying to solve a strange problem in a piece of code.

I have a variable that is define as Double called STD. When i try to insert that variable in a formula the decimal sign (for me a comma "," because I'm Portuguese) gets converted to ";" (which is for me the separation sign for the expressions in excel formulas. ex: AND(A1>0;B1>0)=TRUE). The code is:

My boss uses the + symbol and the = symbol in his formulas eg "=+E3*E4" What is the advantage or difference in this as to just using "=E3*E4"

Jan 10, 2008

In a formula, what effect does putting a plus sign after an equals sign? e.g.
=+((1+B8)^12)-1. I orginally assumed that it made sure that result the would always be positive but I was wrong.

## Copy Formulas Across: Get A Little Black Plus-sign In The Lower Right Corner Of The Cell

May 11, 2009

When I try to copy formulas across do I get a little black plus-sign in the lower right corner of the cell, when I point to it. I can then drag the plus-sign to the the area where I want to copy the formula. This plus-sign has now disappeared.

## Conditional Formatting When Cell Does Not Equal Another?

Aug 21, 2014

This seems way too simple to do yet I can't get it right. It will highlight some that are different and not highlight others that are different. I need to compare column A to O and highlight differences, B to P and highlight difference, and so on.

## Less Than, Greater Than, Equal To Conditional Formatting

Jun 10, 2009

i'm trying to create a markscheme progress sheet.

You take a childs actual age in months and years (ie 9.8 for 9years and 8months). They then, in theory, should be at that age level for reading and spelling.

I have the age in B4, the reading in C4 and the spelling in D4. If i use CF to say i want C4 to be red if it's less than B4, Amber if it's the same and green if it's over, as soon as i okay it, C4 goes amber, because it's equal to B4, which is blank. I can get the colours to work, i just can't figure out what to put to turn the amber off when cell B4 is empty.

I've tried as many combinations as my little amount of excel knowledge can cope with.

## Conditional Formatting - Checking If Cells Are Equal?

Jul 9, 2012

I am trying to create conditional formatting to ascertain whether values in one table (Table 1) are different from another identically formatted table above it (Table 2) (so each cell in Table 1 has a corresponding cell in Table 2).

If the value in a cell in Table 1 is different from its corresponding cell in Table 2, the cell should highlight in red.

Every cell's corresponding cell is the same distance away.

I tried to put in a conditional formatting for C5 (C5 being the first cell in Table 2), which works, but this breaks and turns to #REF every time i save and re-open the document.

## Conditional Formatting - Highlight Cell With Value If Equal Value In List

Oct 15, 2012

I have 3 rows with numbers across several columns, each cell holding one number only. For example:

R1: 1101 - 1102 - 1103 - 1104 - etc.
R2: 2101 - 2102 - 2103 - 2104 - etc.
R3: 3101 - 3102 - 3103 - 3104 - etc.

A little further down I am having a list where the end user will write down the exact same number. Once the same number has been written into the list, I would like the number shown in the top rows (row 1 to 3) to be highlighted in green, basically telling the user that the number has been entered into the list below and is ok now.

How can I manage this via conditional formatting?

## Conditional Formatting :: A1 Is Equal To Data Highlight Cells On A2

## Search For Name Equal To Sheet And Copy?

Apr 17, 2014

I have a main worksheet called 'uren'. In this main worksheet I load data every week for around 40 persons. Every person has their own sheet, named equal to their name in the main worksheet 'uren'.

What I try to figure out is how to copy alle the data below their name in the main worksheet to the sheet which is named equal under the right weeknumber.

My main worksheet is build up like this ( used --- to keep the numbers in place when posting )

Weeknumber 1 ---Andre----Wiebe----Kayleigh----Sandra----etc
Complaints --------23-------45--------87---------34---------
Help-------------23.56------45------12,89--------67-------
Call---------------44--------4---------56---------12-------
hours-------------2,4-------56---------6--------34,67-----
etc

When the data is loaded ( the numbers you see) I want to copy all the data below a persons name ( number behind complaint, call etc) to the sheet which has the same name as the person. the data has to be copied to the correct weeknumber I use in the main worksheet.

The 40 additional sheets are build up like:

Weeknumber-------wk1-------wk2------wk3------wk4------etc
Complaints
Help
Call
hours
etc

So the data has to be copied under the correct weeknumber. The data in the main worksheet is loaded with a function and I quess the data also has to be copied without the fucntion (?)

## Macro To Copy And Paste Value Not Equal To Zero

May 24, 2012

I have a range B2:S47 that I would like a macro to copy and paste values not equal to zero in cells below the range starting from cell B49 so column values align. For example,

X78 0 0 G570 0 G990

Would give me the result,

X78 G570
G990

## Values Which Are Equal Not Treated Equal

Jul 5, 2007

I'm having trouble with a small vba macro. At the end of the macro I test to see if two variables are equal and then print out true or false. However, for some reason even though the variables are equal vba is not treating them that way. I have put the values that represent the variables on a spreadsheet and used the if(x1=x2) formula and it says it is true, also, when I debug the macro and watch the values when it comes to test the logical expression the numbers are the same. I don't understand why vba does not say that the two variables are equal. I have attached a screenshot of the breakpoint where I double check the values are equal.

## Identify Duplicate Rows And Copy / Paste First Cell To All Cells Of Equal Rows

Apr 14, 2014

I am new to macro and just trying to learn. I have a spreadsheet with 20000 rows and 8 columns. I am trying to identify equal rows based on the values of columns C, D, E and F. then I need to separate equal bunches with a blank row. Then I need to copy the ID number from the first cell of column B of each bunch and paste it for the rest of the rows in that bunch. I have written the following code but this does not put the ID of the first cell in a bunch for the rest of the rows in that bunch.

## Count If A Cell Is Equal To Cell In Different Spreadsheet And Is Less Or Equal Zero

Apr 17, 2014

How to correct my formula because it does not work?

Here the formula: =COUNTIFS(Data!C2:C24005,A17,Data!M2:M11149,"<=0")

I need to insert the formula in column C (Findings tab) which counts the rows in Column M (tab named "Data") that equal A17 (Column A in "Findings" tab) and which are less or equal zero. In addition if I drag the formula down I want to only the values be entered in highlighted in blue cells in column C (SKUs With Zero Sales in "Findings" tab) and empty cells in not highlighted cells. I attached images of these two tabs: Data and Findings.

## How To Remove = Sign

Nov 18, 2009

looking for a formula to remove an "= sign" at the very beginning. hence if "=Jordan" then want to change it to "Jordan" in cell T3 only.

but wait, the resulting cell T3 "=Jordan" already has a formula inside it =(U3&V3&W3&X3&Y3)

How to enter formula for removing "= sign" and not disturbing the existing formula ....

Aug 6, 2014

=D7
=E7
=F7

so result:
= \$E\$7
= \$D\$7
= \$F\$7

A solution would be to use the "F4" every cell, but the process requires more time.

I tried to select multiple cells and press "F4" but do not works.

## Plus Sign Barcode Conversion

Mar 6, 2008

Why when I convert the following data, why the plus sign "+" converts to a /K?

I'm trying to convert values in groups of cells to a 3 of 9 barcode.

The value would be something:

+R4235

But when the font is changed to a 3 of 9 barcode and then I test the barcode in Notepad I notice that the plus sign is replaced with a /K.
