Highlight Active Cell Or Cells

Jan 14, 2014

Is there something built in to excel that highlights the cell or cells that are currenyl selected and then not save any highlighted cells when the sheet is saved. Maybe if not something that is built in but a vba script?

Excel 2003 :: Highlight Cell On Same Row As Active.cell Whenever Active.cell Changes

Dec 10, 2012

whenever the active cell is within a given range, highlight the cell on the same row in column S (by changing its interior colour). This should occur each time the active cell is changed, whether by cursor keys or mouse. The effect would be similar to the row and column highlights at left and top of the worksheet.

This action should be restricted to one sheet in the workbook.

It's for Excel 2003.

Highlight Row Of Active Cell

Oct 27, 2008

Is it possible to have a specified shading (say 50%) applied to all rows except the currently picked row and the header rows to allow a user to focus on inputting across the row? I'd use this in conjunction with " Move Selection After Enter" to "Right" so the user would stay on the same row. I've tried the Help function, but can't find anything.

Temporary Highlight Row Of Active Cell

Nov 18, 2010

When looking at a spreadsheet with many columns, it would be nice of the row of the cell I have selected would remain highlighted in yellow, so that as I scroll across rows it's easy to view the data associated with the selected cell. Of course, if I select another cell, I would want the highlighting to change to THAT row. I'm guessing this would have to be in a this.workbook change event.

Active Cell Highlight Missing

Feb 22, 2010

When I open any spreadsheet (new or already populated) the black box that normally frames the active cell is missing (showing which cell you have selected). Likewise when I 'select all' the sheet does not become shaded.

In addition:

Cannot fill series
Cannot change cell format (specifically to show Currency or Accounting w/$ symbol)

Highlighting The Active Cell After A Highlight

Nov 30, 2006

I have a cover sheet to a workbook that holds hyperlinks to its relevent page. Several of the hyperlinks link to the same page but different relevant cells. However it is not overly clear which cell is active when you click the hyperlink. What I would like is for the active cell to be highlighted on the page. EG hyperlink 1 links to page 1 cell A2 & hyperlink 2 links to page 1 cell B6 - I would like A2 to be highlighted when accessed by hyperlink 1 & B6 highlighted when accessed by hyperlink 2.

Print Active Cell Highlight

Nov 14, 2006

I have a routine that highlights a selected Active Cell,
but when I printout the spreadsheet this highlight is not printed.

I have been pull my hair out (what's left!), to try to show this highlighted cell when printed.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Intersect(Range("d22:u45"), Target) Is Nothing Then
Range("d12").Value = " Out"
Range("e14").Value = "0"
If Intersect(Range("d22:u45"), Target) >= 3 Then
Range("d12").Value = Cells(19, ActiveCell.Column).Value
Range("e14").Value = Cells(21, ActiveCell.Column).Value
Static rngPrev As Range, PrevColor As Integer
Dim TempColor As Integer
TempColor = Target.Cells(1, 1).Interior.ColorIndex

If Not rngPrev Is Nothing Then
If PrevColor <> xlLineStyleNone Then .......................

Highlight Row And Column Of Active Cell In Large Spreadsheets

Apr 4, 2013

Is there a way to highlight the row and column of the active cell? The highlighting will move as the active cell is moved around the spread sheet. I have a newbie manager that is bugging the pea-turkey out of me! He wants to be able to easily see where he is within some of our sheets while he is in a vehicle or outside on a job site...seems like an "accessibility" type issue, but can't find anything in Excel "Options."

Highlight Column And Row Of Active Cell But Retaining Previous Formats

Feb 28, 2014

I have found this code by searching witch is perfect

If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = 0
With Target 'With the cell that was selected,
.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
.EntireColumn.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

The point is that i want to retain the previous formatting of cells when i select another cell. And also i would like to create a switch to turn the Worksheet_SelectionChange event on and off. The tricky part is here i guess, becouse i would like when turned off to retain the previous formatting also.

Highlight The Active Row

Dec 21, 2006

if you click on a row, it highlights every cell in it, I want to do the exact same thing but then also when you click on a cell only.

Preferable (probably impossible though) without the use of VBA, because in my company
I think some are "carefull" with enabling macro

Highlight Active Row

Oct 2, 2008

I spend a lot of time in spread sheets working with part numbers and sales figures. With a part # in column B and sales per month in adjacent columns, stretching back years. Is there any way to highlight an entire row automatically? ie. I use Ctrl F to search for a number and it goes to B24. I now want the entire row 24 highlighted as the active row.

When I move to another cell I want the entire row highlighted automatically. Can it be done.

To Highlight Active Row And Column

Jan 6, 2008

I found this code to highlight the active row. I tried to make it highlight the row and column, but I was not successful. What I really need is to highlight the active row and column above and to the left of the active cell, not the entire row and column. For example, if G10 is active, the highlighted cells would be G1:G10 and A10:G10.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel. Range)
Dim i As Long
Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = xlColorIndexNone
If Application. CountA(Target.EntireRow) 0 Then
i = Target.Row
For i = Me.UsedRange.Rows.Count To 1 Step -1
If Application.CountA(Me.Rows(i)) 0 Then
i = i + 1
Exit For
End If
Next i
End If
Rows(i).Interior.ColorIndex = 6
End Sub

Also, I have fill colors on the sheet and I just noticed that the code removes those fill colors. I need it to not remove my fill colors. The only fill colors it should remove are ones it previously colored.

Active Cell - Selecting Too Many Cells

May 13, 2008

I have some code as below
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Select

This should basically go down a list and stop when there is a blank cell. However due to a previous operation in my excel program, it is not doing so.

Basically this list has been formed from copy and pasting from a list of formulas. some of these formulas return a result and others return "" leaving the cell empty.

When i have pasted i have used paste special/values... but it still seems to paste something into these cells because this macro wont work.

I even went and manually selected the first blank cell and pressed the delete button and when i do this it correctly selects the cells only with content, so clearly when pasting a "" value it stops the activecell operation from working..

Highlight Cells Up To Last Cell With Data In A Row

May 11, 2014

I could not find an easy solution to the find/remove duplicates in a row from left to right.

I have an other option: sort all data in one row, then it will show me, if there are any cells with the same word.
But .. here is my first problem:

First row is A1: AS1 with data.
A2: BB2 with data
A3: BD3 with data
A4: BX4 with data and so on.

When I start at A1 and press Shift/CTRL/Arrow right, it will hilite the row until BX1 and if I use the sort command, it will place all empty cells in front of the data.

What I need is hilite only up to the last column in that row.

So I could slowly work myself downward. Or prehaps there is a formula?

I could insert an empty space and write the formula in A1 and copy it down to A1644.

Highlight Cells In Row If Greater Than Same Cell In Another Row

Oct 9, 2013

I'm comparing budgeted dollars vs. actual dollars spent by month. So row 10 has 13 columns (column A is title and then B-M is Jan-Dec) with each cell containing a budgeted dollar amount. Row 26 is same setup but contains actual dollars spent for those months. I want to highlight any cells in row 26 that are greater than the same cell in row 10. So if H26 is $1,000 and H10 is $500, I want H26 to be highlighted in red. How can I do this without having to conditionally format each individual cell as I can't seem to make this work with a cell range in Conditional Formatting?

Replace Cells In Selection Same As Active Cell

Jul 26, 2007

I need some sort of code to check through a selection of cells in a column and make those cells "zero" whose value is equal to the first cell in the selection. e.g., let's say I have a key value entered in cell e6 = "2.99".

E6 F6 G6 H6 I6 J6
2.99 5.25 2.99 2.00 2.99 5.00

So the macro should be able to check the value in cell E6 (i.e. = 2.99) against values in cells from F6: J6 and any cell having the same value as cell E6 (2.99) should be made = 0. So, in the above example cells G6 & I6 will have "0" value after the code has been executed. I have close to 50 rows going down starting from cell E6. For example, E7 has a value which has to be checked against the range starting from F7 to J7 and so on and so forth.

If Two Cells Match (date), Highlight A Third Cell...

Aug 14, 2009

I have a row D2:ND2 where each cell contains a date from October 1st through to September 20th). I also have a column NI3:NI13 that contains various dates such as Easter or bank holidays. Would it be possible to use conditional formatting (or something else) to highlight all rows below D2:ND2 if the dates specified in each cell in D2:ND2 match any of the dates in column NI3:NI13?

Macro To Highlight A Cell Based On Other Cells Value

Aug 31, 2012

I need a macro to highlight a cell based on other cells.

For example:-

1. I wants to highlight A3 in red if all the cells from I3 to Y3 are empty.
2. I wants to highlight A3 in yellow if I3 is filled and J3 is empty
3. I wants to highlight A3 in green if if I3 is filled and J3 is also filled.

Actually I am having a grid which shows all the components of watch like KIt, case, dial , strap,hands.

The A row is purchase order no and then I3 and J3 belongs to KIt means if a po is not then I3 and J3 are empty so A3 is high Lighted in REd and if a po is placed then we put supplier name in I3 and it changes the color to yellow and when a po is confirmed we put confirmation date in J3 so A3 turns to green.

So in this way we can see if any Po is not yet placed or not yet confirmed based on cell color.

Highlight Cells If Cell Has Dependents Or Precedents

Feb 17, 2009

I am working on a tool to highlight cells that have dependents but no precedents. This would be useful for me as I build a number of models and handle models built by others.

I want to be able to easily see where model inputs are and inputs will always be cells that do not have precedents and do have at least one dependent.

I have played with a number of methods with very little success. Is there an easy way to test whether or not a cell has a precedent or dependent within the workbook?

for cell in range

if cell.does.not.have.precedent and cell.has.dependent then
cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 35
end iff

next cell

I found this in an older post but I cant get it to work at all.

Sub atest()

Dim rngA As Range
Dim sngA As Single

For Each rngA In Selection.Cells
If Len(rngA.Formula) > 0 Then
On Error Resume Next
sngA = rngA.DirectDependents.Count
If sngA = 0 Then
rngA.Style = "NoDeps"
End If
End If
End Sub

Highlight Cells Based On Cell Reference On Another Worksheet

May 27, 2014

I am trying to find a way to automatically highlight all the cells specified by the cell references in a column on another worksheet (which will constantly have new values added).

On the attached sample, the 'Data Before' tab shows the base data before any highlighting. As cell references are added to the 'References' tab in 'column A' I want the respective cell to be highlighted on the 'Data Before' tab resulting in the 'Data After' tab and each time a new cell reference is added to the 'References' tab, the respective cell is then highlighted on the 'Data Before' tab.

I would like to have control over the highlight colour so that a different highlight colour can be specified for each date change, i.e. all cell references that are shown on the same date are the same colour but where the date changes a different highlight colour can be specified.
