Counting Coloured Cells

Dec 28, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that contains various different coloured cells,
I need to be able to:
1. count the number of cells in a given range that are coloured a certain colour.

2. show the answer of a sum involving the above, i.e in range D1:D:5 the sum of 10 + blue cells, minus yellow cells = 12

eg.

ABCD12345Sum of 10 (plus blue cells minus yellow cells in range D:1 to D:5) should equal 12

Counting Non-coloured Blank Cells?

Counting Specific Coloured Cells

Jul 23, 2014

This code colours the NEXT cell when a certain cell houses a value.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim Rng As Range
For Each Rng In Range("G2:C1417")
If Rng.Value = 6 Then Rng.Offset(1, 0).Interior.Color = vbBlue
Next Rng
End Sub

So in this case if a cell has a value of 6 then the Next cell down is colour coded blue.

Here is my question.Is there a way I could write some code to count the number of newly coloured cells on the sheet and then print the total.This would save me having to go through long sheets counting manually.

Formula For Counting Coloured Cells.

Apr 15, 2009

I have a table of numbers with conditional formating, formula's are...

=COUNTIF(OFFSET(\$W3:\$AB3,1,0),W3+1)+COUNTIF(OFFSET(\$W3:\$AB3,1,0),W3-1) - color, lemon.
=COUNTIF(OFFSET(\$W3:\$AB3,-1,0),W3+1)+COUNTIF(OFFSET(\$W3:\$AB3,-1,0),W3-1) - color, light blue.

Column AC, I want to count the number of cells that are lemon for each row.
Column AD, I want to count the number of cells that are light blue for each row.

Is it possible?

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting And Counting Coloured Cells?

Nov 1, 2011

i have a spreadsheet in excel 2007. It shows a students target grade in one column and their recent test mark in another column. Firstly i have applied conditional formatting to say whether or not the student has hit their target, below or above, using red, yellow and green colours. This all works fine.

Now i would like to add a formula that counts the number of cells that are red, yellow or green etc.....

Conditional Formatting (the Cell In 'Work' Is Coloured Red, If Not Then It Is Coloured Green)

Mar 31, 2009

I have a workbook (see attached) that has 2 sheets, Work and Holiday. I want to be able to enter a persons initials into the wrksheet 'Work' for each day of the week.

If that person is listed on the holiday sheet for that day as 'A' then the cell in 'Work' is coloured Red, if not then it is coloured Green. I have tried to get this to work using a defined list and various IF statements but all to no avail.

Copying Coloured Cells

Sep 9, 2008

managed to count cells based on colour, however if the colour is variable due to conditional formatting then the UDF doesnt work. So my next thought is just to copy the colours into another column next to it and then get the UDF to count those colours. however copying just the colours is not as easy as seems. when i use format painter the colour all comes out the same (once again i am presuming this is due to conditional formatting). the macros etc seem to complicated for this is there a simple thing i am missing?

Toggle Cells With Coloured Backgrounds

Apr 17, 2009

Having searched and read lots of posts, but without finding the answer.

Is it possible to creat a macro that toggles a cell between [empty], [x], [o] and [n/a], with the [x] cell having a background colour of green, the [o] cell having a background colour of red and the [n/a] with a background of yellow.

The above cells won't have anyother function as they will be used as indicators in a progress chart.

Can Link Row Of Coloured Cells Into Another Spreadsheet In Same Workbook?

Jan 14, 2014

I have created a Vacation Calendar workbook with 6 sheets. All the sheets contain the 12 month calendar. Each row contains an employee and the columns are the days of the week. I have to keep track of 5 departments. I have 5 supervisors that are on different sheets that need to be included on the 6th sheet. I have set conditional formating to show that when I type "v" in a cell that is will go green. Is there a way to populate this information to another sheet without having to copy and paste?

COUNTIF Of Conditional Formatted Coloured Cells With VBA

Jun 10, 2014

I know the VBA code to count cells from a data set that were manually colour-coded.

The problem is that the code (pasted below) doesn't seem to pick up cells that were coloured via Conditional Formatting. How do I do this? What is the VBA (if there is one)?

Function COLORCOUNT(varRange As Range, varColor As Range)
Dim cell As Range
For Each cell In varRange
If cell.Interior.ColorIndex = varColor.Interior.ColorIndex Then
COLORCOUNT = COLORCOUNT + 1
End If
Next
End Function

Macro To Count Rows With Coloured Cells

Mar 27, 2007

I have a sheet with colour coded cells and I need a macro that counts the number of rows with coloured cells.

I've tried the following code but I always get a count of 0 which isn't right.

Sub Count_Coloured_Cells()

Sheets("Issues").Select
Dim i, c
Dim LastRow As Long
i = 1
c = 0
LastRow = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row

Do While i < LastRow + 1
If Rows(1 + i & ":" & 1 + i).Interior.ColorIndex xlNone Then
c = c + 1
End If
i = i + 1
Loop

MsgBox (c)

End Sub

Remember, it's the number of rows I need to count (i.e. one row may have several colour coded cells but I only need to count it once).

Adding A Coloured Marker On Chart Y Axis.

Aug 7, 2009

I have a simple Excel 2007 column chart which has names listed along the y axis for each column. Associated with each name in a small table is a colour reference. Is it possible to add a small marker (say a triangle or something) that aligns with each column?

Or possibly (or in addition) colour each column differently and in accordance with the assigned colours? I'm doing this with some vba code. but if someone can point out the general principle I should be able to work that in.

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Format Using 3 Arrows Coloured?

Sep 24, 2012

I'm attempting something that I feel should be relatively easy using the conditional formatting icon sets (3 arrows coloured)

I have values in columns A and B. I simply want to compare the value in column B against that in A, and format column B accordingly

B > A (green arrow)
B = A (amber arrow)
B < A (red arrow)

The icon set rules only allow for > or >= conditions, and I can't get the desired results using the rules.

A
B
B (with conditional formatting)

1

10
20
Green arrow (increase)

2

20
20
Amber arrow (no change)

3

15
5
Red arrow (decrease)

Macro To Generate A Line Graph With Coloured Pointers And Lables Based On Table

Sep 30, 2009

column A = Date : 01/02, 07/02, 14/02, 21/02, 28/02 (x-axis : shows when the table is updated)
column B = project: x, x, x, x, ,x (name of the project and trend line)
column C = Delivery Date : 01/05/2009, 08/05/2009, 20/05/2009, 30/05/2009, 28/02/2009 (plotted on the graph)
column D = Status : Green, Amber, Red, Green, Blue (status of the project. the points should be the same colour as is described in the table)
column E = Comments: original, delay, supply, out of money, on track, delivered-wow! (these comments will pop up if the user holds the cursor over a point)

NB Y-axis scale : 01/01/2009 to 31/12/2009 with increments of 14 days. this will be the same scale used for all projects.

Date Project Delivery Date Status Comments
01/02 x 01/05/2009 Green original date
07/02 x 08/05/2009 Amber delay supply
14/02 x 20/05/2009 Red out of money
21/02 x 30/05/2009 Green on track
28/02 x 28/02/2009 Blue delivered-wow

So id like the macro to draw the line for project x based on the 'delivery date'. The points should be coloured according to the 'status' column and when you hover the mouse over the point the data lable will show up taking info from the 'comments' column.

Would it be possible to create a macro that will be able to generate this graph automatically. I have a few projects id like to do the same thing for.

Counting Cells That Are Different

Oct 23, 2007

Is there a function in Excel that will count cells that are different from one another? I.e. it would not count the same value twice. For example, in column A:

a
a
b
a
b
b
c
a
c

The result would be 3. However, if I replaced the first "a" with a "d" I would get 4 as a result. Basically I want to know how many different arguments there are in a list. I could not find a function that does this in the Excel list of functions.

Counting Particular Cells

Nov 22, 2008

I am now attempting to do the same type tally except I want a tally for "in conference" Wins/Losses.

I tried the same "SUMPRODUCT" formula as before except this time I held the control key down so as to use only the cells desired. I'm getting "VALUE" for my answer though.

The row I have added in for in conference tally is row 3.

All blue colored cells are for the ACC conference and the green are for the SEC.

Is there a way to get the win/loss figures for selected cells / rows only?

Counting Cells

May 5, 2009

I am trying to create a formula to count the # of names up to a certain word. So Cells A1-F1. Are a list of names, the Last name in the list starts with VACANT. How do I create a formula to count the # of names in the list upto the work VACANT? So if VACANT moves to C1 it would decrease the # of names.

Counting Cells Within Vba

Apr 27, 2007

I have written some VBA code to to test if there are 8 names within a range (EF5:FH5, these are 8 merged cells, (4x4 cells)), if there is 8 names within the cells, ie not any empty cells, then the coding will add the new staff name to "trigger_box_1b", and if not then "trigger_box_1a". These trigger boxes are then used to populate further cells.

Private Sub Trigger_Box_1_Change()
Sheets("Skills Matrix").Select 'puts focus on correct page
Select Case WorksheetFunction. CountIf(Range("EF5:FH5"), 0).double
Case 0
Trigger_Box_1b.Text = New_Staff_Name
Case Else
Trigger_Box_1a.Text = New_Staff_Name
End Select
End Sub

the problems I have be having is that VBA is not recognising the Countif function ("Compile Error: Invalid qualifier", then highlights the Countif). I have tried using a CountA function with the same responce. I have tested the rest of the coding and know that it's working fine (don't think anyone would like to see 75+ pages of VBA coding)

Counting Cells With Zero But Not Blank Cells

Oct 18, 2009

I know this question may have been posted before, but I can not seem to get this to work with my formula. I have a formula to count the values of a column so that I can convert it to a graph. I am giving a value of 1 to cells that contain numbers between 0 and 9.5 and giving a value of 0 to cells that contain numbers greater than 9.5. It works fine except that I have some blank cells that I do not want to get rid of and it is counting those as zeros and giving them a value of one. I want to ignore the blank cells or give them a value of zero.

Counting Number Of Cells

Mar 24, 2014

My data is as follows:

Month 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
Number of Starts 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10
Rolling Number of Cases 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 110 120 120 120 120 120 120

In my dataset above the cases finish after 12 months (hence why there is a maximum number of cases).

What I am seeking is a method to count along a certain number of cells, then sum the contents of those. For example, I would like to count the contents of up to 12 cells, then sum those 12 cells.

Where it gets difficult is as follows:

- In month 6, I am just counting the contents of 6 cells (months 1-6)
- In month 12, I am counting the contents of 12 cells (months 1 -12)
- In month 18, I am counting the contents of 12 cells (month 7 - 18)
