I am writing a program in excel spreadsheet and I was wondering how to fill an input cell with color automatically in excel 2007.
I mean that, say I am writing an addition program, I am giving an input numbers in B1 and B2 and i am writing formula in B3 (=B1+B2). I want excel to fill B1 and B2 with yellow/any color automatlically. Only the cells with number input should be highlighted.
I would like to automatically color fill a series of rows based on like information from a single column. When the information in the column changes then the rows would either stop filling (this would be best) or fill with a different color until the information changes again.
Summary: series of alternating rows would either be filled or unfilled based on changes from the column information.
Hope this isn't too confusing. Below is an example except I would want the cells filled, not the text or numbers to change. The highlight is changing based on the changing of the numbers.
I'm working on a sheet that gets filled in with background colors (red, light blue, and green) and I'm trying to come up with a way to automate the process of inputting the text in the red and blue fields (red always gets PROCESS and light blue always gets SHPD) but they end up in different locations in the same columns. is there a function or macro to make this happen? I have constructed a macro to compile the sheet from my online database as it is a live system.
MODELACTIONxxx1xxx2xxx3xxx4xxx5xxx6xxx7xxx8xxx9xxx10xxx11xxx12xxx13xxx14xxx15xxx16xxx17 This is a simplified version of what I'm working with, and i'm on Excel 2000
How to "hard code" a cell's fill color? I want to assign a cell's fill color to yellow. While setting the fill color is easily done, my problem is that as soon as I paste data into that cell, it looses its fill color. Is there a way to tell the cell to never change the fill color?
I am setting up a schedule maker for a coworker, in which I have divided two columns into time in and time out for each day of the week. My coworker wants the cell to be highlighted red if the shift is a night shift (Begins after 4), and I used conditional formatting to set up both columns independently to evaluate if the value of their content is after 4 PM. However, this means if a shift starts at noon, but ends after 4, only the time out cell will be highlighted red, not a huge issue but it isn't aesthetically pleasing.
I have 10 rows of 6 numbers, all between 1 & 49, in the range A1:F10. I also have the range A20:AW20, which are all currently blank cells. When I type a number between 1 and 49 inclusive into the range A20:AW20, any number that matches it in the range A1:F1 I want the cell to fill in colour.
I have a spreadsheet that has a bunch of empty cells that I need to fill in. Someone else needs to know which ones I have filled in after I am done. Is there a way that I can have Excel automatically highlight the cell after I put something in?
I know I could highlight the cell manually after I put something in it but if Excel can do this automatically for me, that would be the best as this is a very large spreadsheet and there will be many blanks to fill in. I am using Excel 2003.
I have a template I have been asked to amend and I know I need to use Conditional Formatting I just can't crack the formula I need to use. Cell A2 will have either "CD" or "CW" or "IN" input into it
When user inputs either "CD" or "CW" into cell A2, I want cell G2 to have "Margin Movement" automatically displayed. When user inputs "IN" into cell A2, I want cell F2 to have "MV" automatically displayed, and I want cell G2 to be coloured in bright red fill. Then user is to go to cell G2 and input some text as a description, and I want the red fill to disappear once they have input something in there.
I thought I had it licked using IF statements for the "Margin Movement" and the "MV" cells, but I can't get the conditional formatting to work - I assume this is because the cells aren't technically "blank", as they have IF statements in them.
I have a spread sheet and I want to conditionally format rows to be a certain color. That part I'm fine with. But I don't want them to be a set color. I have a "key" of different colored cells that I want to be the fill colors of the formatting. The ultimate goal is that for example the key looked like this
red blue yellow green
then the rows I had would be formatted as red, blue, yellow, and green. But if you were to go into the key and change the first cell from red to purple, then the rows would become formatted as purple, blue, yellow, and green. Obviously I can copy formating by hand using the format painter, but I want it to update automatically.
I would like to auto populate a cell (A2) due to the input results from another (A1). For example, if I enter A1 with "100%" then I want A2 to auto populate with "Complete". And just the same for other percentages; if A1 was input with any range from 1% to 99% it would populate A2 with "In Progress". And if A1 was to equal 0% then A2 would be "Not Started".
I am trying to get the Price to automatically fill cell C11 of the attached spreadsheet when a user enters Grade and Thickness information. I have tried index function, match function, vlookup function, and combinations of all with no luck.
Not sure if this is possible or if I would need to run a VB macro. image multiple columns with text headers.
'A'=Project Number 'B'= Date 'C'=Description etc etc etc 'S'=Cancelled (i actually use up to 'Z' on the columns for various other data)
I have added a Conditional Format on the cells in column 'S' that if the cell data = Y then colour the cell RED. This at first glance will show that the project has been cancelled. What I would like it to do is to colour the complete row (shaded grey for example) this would then show up more easily with the amount of data that is on my sheet.
i have on sheet one a cell that requires an order number ( e.g something like j2345a ) what i would like to do on sheet 2 cell c10 i would like to extract the letter after the 4 figures so that what i would see in that cell is j2345.
what i should add is that the letter after the four numbers isnt always an "a" so it could be any letter that needs to be removed
i also need cell c10 on sheet 2 to remain empty if there is nothing entered in cell e8 of the first sheet
I want to highlight the cell of Column 'A' of excel only when it does not contain the text like "Verify", "Validate" or "Evaluate" in its content if, the value in corresponding cell of Column 'B' holds the value 'Y'. Secondly, the column 'A' can't contains the words like 'Verify', 'Validate' and 'Evaluate' if the corresponding cell in Column 'B' holds value 'N'. So just need to highlight those discrepancies if its there.
Column A Column B Expected Action
Press F3 N Its Fine
Verify this.. Y Its Fine
this.... Y Need to Highlight Cell of Column A as Value in Column B is Y but the column A does not contain any value like "Verify", Validate" or "Evaluate"
Verify This. N Need to Highlight Cell of Column B as the Value of Column A contains words like "verify", "validate", "evaluate" but corresponding cell value in column B does not hold value "Y".
When I type numbers in the cells from D4 to D14, E4 to E14 and so on, the particular cell should turn into "Green". All the the cells will remain "yellow" and blank until numbers are entered based on the daily cleaning of machines. When particular machine no is entered in to a cell cell, that cell should turn green(this shows that "service is done for that machine")
Afternoon everyone i am having abit of trouble working on an excel 2007 spreadsheet. In cell I1 i have a tab called Color. i want the cells below I1 to be filled with one of 3 colors green, yellow, or red depending on whats in cell F "Status" (closed or open - in progress) and cell G ECD for estimated completion date.
Green - i need it to fill green if status is closed. Yellow - need it to fill yellow if ECD is any date greater than today and if status is open. Red - need it to fill red if ECD is todays date or older and status is open.
I'm trying to discover the best way to accomplish formatting a cell by filling it a certain color based on 2 of 3 criteria of other cells.
Column A has the title of the field. Cells B1:D1 have one of 3 values: Nothing/blank, Complete, or x. If all of the x's are gone within the range of B1:D1, I'd like to automatically format cell A1 to fill in Blue (or any color).
How do you make the auto-fill to not automatically use the next numbered cell:
I want it to fill with every other cell from a different sheet (same column "D") so i would have a cell ='sheet1'$D10 or whatever then how would i do it so it will auto fill every other cell from then on so the first cell below the initial one would copy from the other sheet as D12 instead of D11?
