Count Cell Colour On Conditionally Formatted Cells?

Aug 5, 2014

spread sheet that I need to do for work. Unfortunately I do not have excel on my home computer to be able to attach a spread sheet

The spreadsheet has one column (A) with a list of questions. The column next to this (B) has either a red or yellow cell in each row (a red cell would be a high risk to the business if the answer to the question in that row was no, and a yellow cell indicates a moderate risk to the business in the answer to the question in the row was no).

The third column (C) is conditionally formatted so if a 'y' was placed in any of the cells they would turn green. If 'n' is placed in any of the cells the cell would change to either red or yellow (this would depend on what the colour was in column B).

I need to know a formula to count cells by colour. So the number of red, yellow and green cells in column C would be counted automatically into a totals box for each colour at the bottom of the spreadsheet. I have tried some online suggestions but couldn't get these to work for cells that had been conditionally formatted. I'm not the most experienced person with spreadsheets (this time last week I couldn't add two cells together)

The final thing I need from the spreadsheet (and I'm not even sure if this is possible) is for a total box to be colour co-ordinated based on the number of red, yellow and green cells in column C. I would need the total box to be green if all column c is green, yellow if three or less cells in column C are yellow and red if any of the cells in column C are red or there are more than 3 yellow cells in column C.

A Cell Colour Based On 5 Other Cell Colours That Have Been Conditionally Formatted

Conditionally Formatted Cells Which Turn The Text In Them To Red If The Value Is Less Than 40

Aug 18, 2009

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).

Clearing Cell Contents If Conditionally Formatted

May 3, 2009

This is my first use of the forum as I only joined yesterday after a recommendation from another colleague.

I am attempting to write a macro to clear the contents of cells in a range that have conditional formatting. Below is the formula I have used...

Sub clr()
Dim r As Range
For Each r In Range("09:050")
If InStr(r.Interior.ColorIndex, "40") Then r.ClearContents
Next r
End Sub

While the formula runs without error, it does not clear the contents, although I read on another thread on this forum that you cannot clear contents of cells that are conditionally formatted.

Alternatively, if there is a more efficient way to clear cell contents (without using a formula in the cell itself),

Copy Or Link Formatting From Conditionally Formatted Cell To Another Cell?

Aug 12, 2014

I have a column who's content is determined via about 6 nested if statements from data on that row. That cell is then conditionally formatted to a certain color based on the text that is ultimately printed from the nested ifs (simply an extra visual legend for the text). All of this contributing info and about 1000 lines items make a very large and difficult to print page. What I am trying to do is a make a summary sheet that simply takes the index number of these 1000 rows and copies or links the conditional formatting of the mentioned cell onto this number on another sheet. I have already linked this status cell and put it adjacent to the index number which works well in that with two columns I can show the index and status but if I could combine the color of the status cell onto the index cell, it would be even better. I am pretty sure another conditional format for this summary sheet would not be possible or be extremely complex since the contents of the index cell I am conditionally formatting have no bearing on the conditions for the format. Was hoping there is some VBA magic that could simply mimic the conditional formatting from one cell and put it on another.

Counting Conditionally Formatted Colors

Dec 10, 2007

I have columns that have different colors, depending on there conditional format i.e. Green or Red. I want to count the number of either Red or Green in a total at the bottom. I have search and found a few answers

Function CountColor(rColor As Range, rSumRange As Range)
Dim rCell As Range
Dim iCol As Integer
Dim vResult
iCol = rColor.Interior.ColorIndex
For Each rCell In rSumRange
If rCell.Interior.ColorIndex = iCol Then
vResult = vResult + 1
End If
Next rCell
CountColor = vResult
End Function

BUT these don't seem to work on conditionally formatted columns

Counting Conditionally - Count A Number Of Cells In One Column?

Dec 11, 2012

I am attempting to count a number of cells in one column so long as they fall within a certain date, which is located in another cell in the same column. I'm trying to account for a number of reports that happened within a certain week.

The formula I came up with was

=COUNTA(COUNTIFS(A_DATE,">="&B2,A_DATE,"<="&D2))

But this returns 1 more then it should no matter what. Even when all cells within A_DATE are empty. it returns 1.

I know the COUNTIFS portion works to count the cells between certain dates.

Is what i'm looking to do possible or am I suffering from Excel burnout and just can't see that logicaly it makes no sense?

Count The Number Of Records Conditionally

Sep 15, 2008

Is there a formula that I can use to Count how may records exist in a group.

Example. I have records labled M right, M left, N right, N left,.....U right, U left. Each letter represents a server cabinet

In a input cell, I can select M right.
In a second cell, I can select U left.

I need to have the formula calculate the number of Cabinets'
(M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U) that it takes to cross the cabinets = 9

The problem I am having is that the formula has to change based on weather they select the left side or right side of the cab.

Example.
First input cell = M right
Second input cell = U right

I need to have the formula calculate the number of cabinets
(M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T) that it takes to cross the cabinets' Note: U is not counted. = 8

Colour Cell Based On Few Conditions / Cell Values Of Other Cells In Same Row?

Jun 28, 2014

In the xls for each step I have 2 raws-planned and actual. Step planned duration is populated manually over the weeks.Before that row we have another reflecting the actual step status per week

I would like to find a way how cell reflecting the actual status of a step can be automatically populated (coulored) based on the colour/value of activities that are planned for that week and for that step.Activities are listed below the step and again have planned and actual row.

The rule should be : if for a week we have several activities all of them should be finished in order to have step stataus auto populated as green. If a single activity planned for that week is not done-then weekly step status should be red.

The activities for each step are grouped below the step. It seems that one of the difficult part in that request would be how formula will understand where starts and finishes the activities that belong to one step. To get that happen I placed a column showing step and another column where we activity.
