Formatting Won't Apply To My Cell With A Formula

Nov 26, 2005

I downloaded the checkbook register from Microsoft.com and am trying to add a
few cells at the end to quickly calculate my outstanding debits and credits
so that I can balance my statements automatically. I figured out how to write
the formula properly (eventually), but the cells will not take on the
currency format no matter what I do. I have tried pasting the format from the
other cells within the register, tried clearing the format and reapplying the
currency format, tried accounting, etc.

Apply Conditional Formatting If The Cell Value Is Between 300-500?

Feb 4, 2014

is possible to construct a conditional formatting scenario and at the same time apply that formatting if the cell entry is within 10% either way of the logical test?

For example if you apply conditional formatting if the cell value is between 300-500 is it possible to add in a 10% swing on each value?

Apply Conditional Formatting To A Cell When It Is Left BLANK

Nov 30, 2008

I'm trying to apply conditional formatting (shading) to cells that are left blank.

(Purpose: I am designing a research template for a client to complete with data and want the spreadsheet to show them where they've "missed a bit"!)

(When I go to the conditional formatting box, it asks me to specify when "cell value is"..."between/not between/equal to/not equal to" etc. But there's no option to specify when the cell is blank.)

Take Decimal Place Formatting Of Cell And Apply It To Other Cells?

Jul 3, 2014

I'm looking to see if there is a way to take the decimal place formatting of cell and apply it to other cells.

For example, if someone types in 0.0001 into a source cell, I'd like to take that decimal formatting and apply it to other destination cells. This way when values are typed into those cells it will automatically display 4 places past the decimal, no matter what the value. ie 50 will display 50.0000

Conditional Formatting - Cell To Change Color When Apply Specific Value

Dec 4, 2012

I know how to set a conditional for a cell to change a color when i apply a specific value, but how about if i want to set E2 cell to change to green when i place a 'X' on F2?

Excel 2010 :: VBA To Apply Cell Protection Based On Conditional Formatting Result

Jan 27, 2012

I am trying to use the status of Conditional Formatting to toggle on/off protection for a cell.

I have a cell with Conditional Formatting applied if the result of a formula is true. If the Conditional Formatting is applied, I want the cell protection turned on so a user can not change the entry in the cell. If Conditional Formatting is not applied (false), cell protection is turned off and the user may edit.

I am using Excel 2010 and Vista.

Apply Formula To Every Cell At Once?

Sep 22, 2009

Instead of looping through 700,000 lines of data and applying a formula one by one, isn't there a way to simply apply the lines below to all cells in a range at once?

VBA Apply Formula To Each Cell In Range

Jan 20, 2014

I'm using the code below to create sheets and copy pertinent data for each value found in column O on my data sheet.

Code:
Sub CreateSheets()
Dim WBO As Workbook
Dim ThisWS

[Code]....

What I'm now trying to do, is apply a formula for each cell, in columns C:N for each newly created sheet. The formula is 'The value of 100 minus the value of the cell'.

I've tried adding

Code:
cell.Value = 100 - cell.Value
to differing points of the script but I recieve a 'Type mismatch error.

Apply Formula To Cell That Allows User Input?

Apr 14, 2014

Cell A1 is going to be used as my true/false value to trigger the formula. Cell A2 must allow user input to calculate "what if" scenarios however, if cell A1 value = true then cell A2 = 0.

I think I need to place my formula into A3 to allow the user their input to A2 without overwriting my formula. Problem is if I place the = sign in front of IF, the formula does not work the way I need it to. If I don't place the = sign in front of IF excel just treats it as a text entry.

=IF(A1="Actual",A2=0)
IF(A1="Actual",A2=0)

I have inherited this workbook and am just trying to automate the functionality to streamline.

Apply Named Cell From Another Worksheet To Existing Formula?

Sep 12, 2009

I am trying to apply named cell from another worksheet to existing formula.

For example I have a formula in sheet2 which looks like =sheet1!A1+sheet1!B1. I then subsequently name sheet1!A1 = Jan and sheet1!B1 = Feb. Thinking that if I apply these names the formula in sheet2 would look like =Jan+Feb. However I get the message "Microsoft Office Excel cannot find any references to replace" when I try to apply the names using Excel menu "Insert - Name - Apply".

VBA Code To Automatically Fill Down And Apply Formula Till Last Cell

Aug 22, 2012

I am using this code and it works fine:

Dim MyData As Range
Dim MyResult As Range
Set MyData = Range("E1:E1000000")
Set MyData2 = Range("F1:F1000000")
Set MyResult = Range("J4")
MyResult.Select
Selection.Formula = "=COUNTIFS(" & MyData.Address & ",""=Kim""," & MyData2.Address & ",""=done"" )"

Is there any way I can change the code so that it automatically finds the last cell as Im using Range("E1:E1000000") and Range("F1:F1000000") because there will not be more than 1000000 entries.

Using VBA To Apply Formatting?

Nov 23, 2013

I want to apply conditional formatting by VBA. Cell Q2 contains the month number, (in this case 11). I want each cell in the range D2:D50 to be filled in red and the word 'UNPAID' appear if Q2 is greater than 10 and the cell is blank, otherwise no formatting at all. I'd like this to be triggered on the Worksheet_SelectionChange event if at all possible.

Apply Conditional Formatting Using VBA And UDF?

Sep 14, 2012

I am trying to create a macro (which will go in an add-in, using Excel 2007) which will apply a custom format to any selected cells which have their formulae hidden (Format Cells, Protection, Hidden). A similar macro works fine for locked cells.

Here is the UDF I wrote, which returns True/False based on the Hidden status of a cell:

VB:
Public Function Hidden(Check_Cell As Range)
Hidden = Check_Cell.FormulaHidden = True
End Function

[Code]....

just place all three pieces of code into a module, and change the first line of the two macros to a standard "Sub Macro1()" type format.

Apply Formatting To All Worksheets

Aug 31, 2007

I have this macro and all I want to do is apply it to every page of my worksheet with a loop and can't find what kind of loop I need:

Sub format()

' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+r
'
ActiveCell. Offset(-37, 0).Rows("1:1").EntireRow.Select
Selection.Copy
ActiveCell.Offset(37, 0).Rows("1:1").EntireRow.Select
ActiveSheet.Paste

ActiveCell.Range("A1:K37").Select
Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalDown).LineStyle = xlNone
Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalUp).LineStyle = xlNone
With Selection.Borders(xlEdgeLeft)
.LineStyle = xlContinuous
.Weight = xlMedium
.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
End With

Apply Conditional Formatting Once Across 168 Sheets

Jul 3, 2014

I have a workbook that contains 168 sheets of data (it's an extract from a PM tool) which is effectively a status report from each project in our portfolio. Contained within each status report are some financial data that shows a Plan number and a Forecast number for which I want to apply conditional formatting to this section (this is the same section for each sheet), to all the 168 sheets without having to go individually into each sheet. I have searched here and all the varying responses to a similar situation as mine, do not cater for the number of sheets that I have. And I need to do this on a monthly basis at monthend. So in the example below I want to apply conditional formatting if the Forecast (Cols D & G) are greater than Plan (Cols B & E). Is there a way of doing this just with the conditional formatting or would it need a VBA script?

Col A Col B Col C Col D Col E Col F Col G
Financial Summary - Selected Project Currency: USD

Current year total cost
Overall project cost

Conditional Formatting Apply To 2 Columns?

Dec 31, 2013

I wish to have one conditional format apply to K and L. Presently it's L only where it works.

=OR(K1="",AND(K1="No",L1<>""),AND(K1="OJ",L1=""))

Why when I change the range from =\$L:\$L to =\$K:\$L does it not apply to both?

VBA Conditional Formatting - Apply To Two Columns

Jun 27, 2014

I have a conditional formatting issue, using VBA.

My conditional formatting code works fine for one column; however, when I try to apply the conditional formatting to two columns, the code only applies to the first column listed. Additionally, I have two sets of "rules" that apply to the same column. One of the "rules" includes two columns. The other rule applies to only one column. I'm not sure if this is my issue, or whether I'm trying to apply the same code to two different columns.

My code is below.

Code that applies to column "M" only...

How To Apply Formatting / Macro To A Worksheet Before Opening

Mar 11, 2014

I have software that exports to an excel file. The files are one or two page reports. The way the software dumps the reports into excel, it comes out looking pretty rough. The rows and columns aren't spaced very well, the fonts look like garbage, and nobody likes them.

I would like to apply formatting changes to these reports automatically without the end user having to do anything. So as soon as the document is opened up it bolds the column headers, adjusts column widths etc. The reports are auto generated so no formatting can be done when the reports are made.

There may also be different formatting done to different reports. The files will come out named something like, "Report_A_DDMMYYY.xls, Report_B_DDMMYYY.xls," etc. Report A, and Report B will likely need different formatting.

I'm not opposed to using VBA or whatever might be necessary to make this happen. I can learn anything I need to pretty quickly, I just don't know where to start with this.

Apply Conditional Formatting To Bars In Bar Charts

Aug 29, 2006

I have created an excel file that contains a lot of worksheets which contain a lot of raw data and charts. There are 5 different tabs for 5 different companies. Each tab currently contains only 1 year of raw data for that company. Then I have another excel worksheet that has nothing but charts on it. Each chart is a bar chart that shows each of the 5 companies. It also shows the current rate for the month for each company and the 12 month average for each company. On the chart there are also 3 lines. There is a standard line that we try to meet each month. There is also a line for the upper control limit and a line for the lower control limit. Here is my problem:

The 2 bar charts (current rate for the month & the 12 month average) are created and updated by the raw data in each of the 5 data sheets.

Based upon the values in each of the cells that create and update the bars on the charts themselves:
I want the bars to be RED if the values are below the lower control limit.

And I want the bars to be GOLD if the values are above the upper control limit.

And I want the bars to be green if the values are in between the upper and lower control limits.

Apply Conditional Formatting To Cells That Meet Certain Criteria?

May 19, 2014

Column b in sample is conditionally formatted based on it's values. I want to also apply that same formatting to the person's name in the chart in D2:I9. For example, Jeff is in bottom 50% so cell B2 is shaded red with red text. I would like to apply that same red shade and red text to all the cells in my chart that say Jeff. Also, as example, all of the cells in my chart that say Kelsey would be formatted with green shade/green text and so on...

Apply Conditional Formatting To Highlight ONLY New Content On Column

Mar 24, 2014

I have a spreadsheet and I want to color particular cells in a column with a new color - i.e. any new changes need to be highlighted. I know there's a way to do tracking changes in excel, but it just sticks a little flag almost invisibly in the corner of the cell. I want to be able to bring the spreadsheet back to our administrator and say hey the stuff in red is new.

On a related note - I am working on this massive spreadsheet that is a .csv but I am saving it as an exel spreadsheet - is that ok? I am assuming that if I save it as a csv, it will return to the original formatting just without the colors, filters, etc changes I made - which is fine because I think somehow the .csv file will be uploaded to the system and no further changes need to be made.

I found out the hard way when you have a .csv file and make changes and then save it, you lose all the fun row/column size adjustments, color, etc - but I figure in the meantime I'll work on it as a excel spreadsheet and then return it to it's natural .csv file status.

Conditional Formatting To Apply To All Cells In A Column In Pivot Table

Apr 25, 2014

I am having trouble getting some conditional formatting to apply to all cells in a column in a pivot table. Currently, the conditional formatting is only applying to the top level items in the pivot but is not applying to the lower level items. I can see why it is doing this. the range in "Applies to" is only specifying the rows that contain the top level items. I tried to change the range to D10:D647 but, it reverts back to just the top level items. How to get it to apply to everything?
