# Formula / Conditional Format To Award Score From 0 To 4 Depending On Cell Value

Jul 24, 2014

I want to create a system based on the value of a cell appearing as a grade in the adjacent cell. The cell could contain any value from -10 to +10.

the criteria would be

value greater than +2 = 3
value between 0 and +2 = 2
value between -2 and zero =1
value below -2 =0

I can get a formula to work for a single instance but not multiple conditions.

## Weighted Grant Award According To Application Score?

Jan 16, 2014

For a group of agencies that have applied for grant funding, I'm trying to create a spreadsheet that will calculate the amount to be awarded according their score on the grant application. I want the agencies that receive 100% score to receive full funding and the remaining agencies to receive the remaining amount in a weighted fashion according to their scores. I'm having a hard time creating anything that will self-adjust without getting a circular reference. I've attached a spreadsheet with the sample data.

## Assign A Score Value To The Cell That Contains A Percentage Depending On A Range

May 2, 2007

I have a spreadsheet with several columns that have percentages as a whole number and with a decimal format. I need assign a score value to the cell that contains a percentage depending on a range.

For example:

If cell A1 has a value between 97%-100% then A2 should display "15", however if A1 has a value of 90%-96% then it should display "12" and if A1 has a value of less than 89% then it should display "0".

## Cell Format Changes Depending On Formula

Jul 18, 2013

My formula works fine, but I need the first number of the answer displayed with only two decimal places. The formula averages a set of numbers, then adds " of " and a cell reference.

I want the answer displayed as 2.43 of 3. Here is the formula.

=IF(AVERAGE(W12:W123)>0,(AVERAGE(W12:W123))&" of "& Z9,"") it works perfectly but displays 2.42857142857143 of 3.

The cell is formatted to NUMBER with two decimal places. . Changing the format has no effect, but changing the formula does.

If I use =IF(AVERAGE(W12:W123)>0,(AVERAGE(W12:W123)) or =AVERAGE(W12:W123) the result is 2.43. When I add the next portion, &" of "& Z9,"") it changes to 2.42857142857143.

I've tried reformatting cells and nothing changes. This is the only cell I'm having problems with. The worksheet seems to be working fine.

## Conditional Formatting: Format 3 Columns Depending On Certain Value From Another Column

Mar 26, 2009

I want to format 3 columns in excel depending on certain value from another column.
By example: I have the columns A B C completed with some text. On the column D it will be the numbers 0 or 1. If the number is 0 the background color from A,B,C columns shall be Green, if the number is 1 the color shall be red.

I have tried in conditional formatting with the formula =\$D\$1=0 but the color of the columns are changing only depending on the value from cell D1. I don't know what is the correct formula. For column A1 I want to check the value from D1, A2 - D2, A3 - D3,...,An - Dn.

## Cell Format For Conditional Formatting With A Formula?

Jan 25, 2012

I have a large spreadsheet with a number of columns that are set up for conditional formatting. For example a column of "BUY"'s and "SELL"'s where the "BUY"s are formatted with the default "light green fill, dark green text". I have other columns that are conditionally formatted using a formula. When I base the result on a formula I don't seem to have the option to use the default formats. Is it possible to use the defaults or maybe even how to customize my format to look like the default? It would look a lot better if I had a uniform red/green style throughout the sheet.

## Conditional Format Formula: Allow The User To Blank Out The Cell Within The Year

Sep 26, 2009

i have a set of conditional formatting set up for my workbook, the first is simply that if the result is false the cell is blank(white text,white background). the second if positive result,keeps the text black till 1 year has passed. the problem is the third, i.m trying to allow the user to blank out the cell within the year (white text,white background)if certain criteria are met. the idea is that they change the entry in cell D from T to TX or from M to MX and the formula pick this up, but i keep getting a error saying "your formula contains an error", the formula im using is, =if(or(\$D5="tx","mx")) then i set the format to (white text,white background). its probably really simple but i,ve been trying to solve this now for around 8 hours and i.m stuck

## Conditional Format With Formula For Each Row

Oct 21, 2013

I have a file with two columns

Column A has a list of equipment names, for example: EQ1, EQ2, EQ3, etc.
Column B has serial numbers of equipment from column A.

I need to create a complex conditional formatting, which will check:

If A1=EQ1, and B1"HCC*" then make it red,
OR
if A1=EQ2, and B1"ABC*" then make it red,
OR
if A1=EQ3, and B1OR("CDE*","FGE") then make it red.

And then same thing for A2, B2 cells.

I have thousands of rows in both columns.

I have to check whether selected equipment name corresponds with entered serial name pattern. I don't know how to do it for each row separately.

I thought of something like:
1st condition: =AND(A1="EQ1",LEFT(B1,3)"HCC")
2nd condition: =AND(A1="EQ2",LEFT(B1,3)"ABC")
...

But how do I apply this conditional formatting to each row, so that it will compare A2 with B2, A3 with B3, and so on, instead of comparing A1 with B1 in all of the rows?

## Conditional Format If No Formula

May 29, 2009

I was wondering if anyone knows if you can set conditional formatting if the cell contains no formula but is not blank.

We use many formulas to calculate cells and we need to the cell to be colored if there is no formula entered. But the cell is not necessarily blank or zero.

## Conditional Format For Formula Or Number

Oct 2, 2009

I have a spreadsheet where I have certain cells that contain a link to copy a number from another tab in the spreadsheet.

At times, I have to plug in a number to try certain values. In doing this, I overwrite the link or formula. I then do an 'undo' to bring it back to the original link or formula.

I would like to put a conditional format based on the cell's content. If it is the formula, leave it as is. If it is overwritten by a number, I want it to change colors to remind me to undo my change when I am done.

The conditional formatting options I have found so far allow me to format according the the value in the cell but not the nature of it's content: number of formula.

## Conditional Format Using Formula That Contains VLookup

Mar 13, 2014

I have a set of data in A:P

I have a named range "TR" in which I need to look up a value

I would like to conditionally format Columns M:P if the value in the cell is less than a value in the lookup table

Column M corresponds with the 2nd column of the lookup table
Column N corresponds with the 3rd column of the lookup table ETC

My formula would be:

if M2 < Vlookup(b2&g2,TR,2,false) then conditional format
if N2 < Vlookup(b2&g2,TR,3,false) then conditional format

etc for Columns O and P

I have attached a sample workbook. TEST CONDITIONAL FORMAT.xlsx

Jun 19, 2014

How to conditionally format an array formula? The basic formula is an index(match criteria1 and match criteria2.

Shown below is the formula I am trying to use. Basically if the formula below = today() then be yellow.

## Conditional Format - Formula For Blank Cells

Jul 1, 2012

I am using a conditional formula to compare if a cell in column A is higher than a cell in column B. If a cell is blank the cell is formatting. I am trying to highlight only cells with numbers. Any formula to place in the conditional format formula that will evaluate the cells excluding a blank cell?

ie: grapes and pears should be highlighted because value in column B is less than column A but the conditional format is highlighting apples also where apples should have no highlighting because the value in column B is none or blank.

A B
oranges 2.49 3.25
grapes 1.99 1.89
apples 1.00
pears 1.11 1.03

## Conditional Format To Identify Formula Cells

Jun 16, 2006

This should be pretty straight forward but the solution has escaped me so far. I have some formulas that ratably spread monthly budgets across the life of a program. Ocasionally these budget formulas are hard keyed over with a value which overrides the ratable budget formula. I would like to conditionally format all cells that contain hard keyed values so they don't get inadvertently copied to new budget lines.
