How do I go about formatting selected cells for different colors for each different number in the selected cells? If I have numbers scattered about I want the cell to show a different color depending on the number that is inserted. EG: 115=red, 365=blue.
I am trying to format certain cells to change colors depending on the date and the content of the next field to show due dates.
cell label due date date completed
c5 au5 be5
c6 au6 be6
c7 au7 be7
c8 au8 be8
What I need is for the contents of au5 to be green up until 10 days before the due date, yellow up until 5 days, and red with less than 5 days until the due date. If the date completed is entered into be5, then the contents of au5 should be black.
Is this possible, and if it is, how do I set this up? I tried to use
And choose green formatting (something I found on yahoo answers), but when I enter the date the text is still the original black font.
In conditional format I've this formula =countif($Q$2:$V$2,B2)>0 which will return any matching numbers in yellow. My question is can I insert that once that row reaches 10 matching numbers the row turns green.
I want to conditionally format the fill colour of pie or donut segments based on either the value of the segment (e.g. red for negative, green for positive), or based on the value of related cells (e.g. Equal sized segments coloured red for related %age value >40, amber for 40 to 60, green >60).
My pallet lost color-coding - if I hover over each little scare it displays the names for the colors and if I click on them they color the cells with the right colors, but the palette itself lost the visual display of colors except for 8 colors: black, blue, red, magenta, yellow, cyan, and white.
I use color-coding of cells a lot and I find it difficult to work without visual clues. At least the hover-support allows me to get the work done, but with difficulty.
I am trying to create a Holiday/Absence Sheet that will count up hours of Holidays, absence, business Visits etc etc.
The only way I can think of doing this is by colour and filling the cells with the Number of hours holidays, Absence & Business Visits but to do this I need to create a formula that will sum by colour. I've tried a variety of things and I'm sure this can be done using VBA but it's something I have never used so I am at a loss.
So, what I need is a SUM (A1:A31 if colour= Red) and SUM (A1:A31 if colour= Blue) etc.
I hope this makes sense or one of you geniuses out there can come up with somethign smart that works better than my idea!
I'm trying to get a range of cells to change colors. This should happen from VBA code and happen on specified sheet that is not the default sheet when the userform appears that has the button that triggers the event. I have to reference the range with variables because it changes depending on other events.
I'm trying to create a formula that can display colors based on the strength of the margin of victory of a candidate, take these two examples for instance.
County Frank Cole Dean Total MOV MOV%
I want to be able to draw in the outline of these counties (or at least the cell proceeding the MOV%) displaying the color that corresponds with the winner of that county. The added twist would be to shade the color depending on the Margin of Victory (MOV) as well. The closer the vote, the lighter (or mixed?) the cell (or county) would be. If it could be at all possible I would really be cool to mix both colors so that a result 100% for one candidate would get a color 100% pure while a 17% MOV would get a color 17% more of the winning candidate than of the loser (or losers) colors. I don't think a VBA is necessary for this one.
How to sort out a way to count cells whose fill colors have been set via conditional formatting.
I'm sure that I was once able to use Chip Pearson's CountOfCF function back in the days of Excel 2003, as it worked around the 3 condition limit and used .ColorIndex which assumed that you'd only ever be formatting using the .ColorIndex values of 1 to 56, but I can't seem to be able to get it to work in 2010.
I'm a average excel user, i know my way around it and kow common and basic formulee, VB isnt a strong point, but i am willing to attemp anything for this, let me explain
Lets say in colum A I have a list of items, in colum B i have a check box, currently the check box is red, if i tpye a x it turns green due to conditional formating. That works fine...onto the problem...
Lets say in colum A i have my items but they are repeated...eg A1, A145, A166, A122 are all the same item, what i want is regardless of where i place the x each check box under coloum B either gets a X and turns green, or just turns green, i dont mind...
I dont think conditional formatting can cut this, though i may be wrong. Ive tried to use the IF function under condtional formatting but ran into problems...
I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.
I am trying to conditionally format the top middle and bottom thirds of a range of data. Problem is, that the range needs to be flexible as sometimes there may be a maximum of 36 cells with data, but sometimes there may be less (so there are blank cells in the range that need not be counted). The methods I have tried always include the blank cells, and so it is not equally formatting the thirds (as it includes the blanks cells as part of the bottom data)....
Here are the 2 methods Ive tried so far using excel 2003) Top 34%: =IF(INT(COUNT($D$3:$D$38)*34%)>0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D $38)*34%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D $38)*67%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))0,LARGE($D$3:$D$38,INT(COUNT($D$3:$D $38)*100%)),MAX( $D$3:$D$38))
I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.
I am comparing a set of common variables across 2 sets of independent financial data. When comparing a variable across the 2 sets e.g. profit I want to colour a neighbouring cell based on the size of the difference. For example if the difference between the two values is within plus or minus 1 make it green, plus or minus 5 red etc.
my excel setting... I'm not able to see some of the numbers (in currency/accounting) in excel file, it shows as many "#" sign, and it's not due to the column width. The same file can be seen in other computer.
The format setting is the same in all the cells but only certain rows/cells' numbers appear like "normal".
The following code is the code "behind" the run button on my userform. The last section reads in a column ( of numbers and text) into a listbox based on the users choice. Is there any way I can have only certain rows in a different color - based on either if the value in that row is greater than a certain number of if the text in that row is a particular sentence?

Trying to format cells b9 through b 24 and cells c9 through c24 to change from white to a light grey color by clicking the mouse button once. so one click white, another click grey. The color grey I need is white, background 1, darker 25% in the autofill field in excel. I have search other forums they all lead to changing the code, I did this already. just copy pasted a code I found but all cells were selected to change a bright green.
I am making some grids which will have a series of numbers in the individual cells. But I can't figure out how to change the colors of the digits. If I change one digit to Red; all the numbers in that cell change to Red. Whereas I would like to have them as Red,Green,Black,Blue,etc.
