Highlighting Cell Color Depending On Text

Sep 15, 2014

See attached work book, it is an mot booking system that is all working fine except for one thing that I don't know how to change.

At the moment if you double click a cell in the test type column it enters the required data and turns the cell green highlighting the length of time and values this is all good but I am wanting the ones that start with n-side to turn yellow just so that we can see our own internal tests easily. It is control in the coding not formatting . Is there a way this can be done?

Highlighting Cells Depending On A Value In Another Cell

Aug 19, 2006

Have a spreadsheet shows 4000 warehouse locations (location of products). Each cell is a location in the warehouse (ba050, ca809, etc, actual warehouse locations, not grid ref); some products have more than one location, the locations are always next to each other. I import a text file into the workbook which tells me which product has more than one location (2, 10, 50, etc), thats all Im interested in ( multiple locations).

What Ive done so far is to use vlookup to look at locations in file and allocated the number (the number of locations that product has) next (next column) to the cell that correspond to that location. What I need is a macro or formula that will look at the number and than highlight that many cells up or down the column, according to the number in the cell to the right (5 in cell, highlight 5 cells, 50 highlights 50). The warehouse runs up one aisle and then down the next and so on. So I need to be able to highlight cells up one column and then down the next and then up, then down and so on.

Multiple locations change on a daily bases, so need a quick way of updating 4000 locations.

New to excel dont know if this is possible or not. Learning as I go.
Need some assistance.

Sample below.
Only interested if a number is returned, ****** can be ignored as will hide all columns expect ones with locations. So:

BA020 returned value of 4, so would like to highlight (any colour) BA020, BA029, BA040, BA049.

BB780 returned value of 2, so would like to highlight BB780, BB789.

POSSIBLE?

BA090 2 BA100 **** BB749 **** BB739 ****

BA079 **** BA089 **** BB760 **** BB750 ****

BA070 **** BA080 **** BB769 **** BB759 ****

BA059 **** BA069 **** BB780 2 BB770 ****

BA050 **** BA060 4 BB789 **** BB779 ****

BA039 **** BA049 **** BB800 **** BB790 ****

BA030 4 BA040 **** BB809 **** BB799 ****

BA019 **** BA029 **** BB820 **** BB810 ****

BA010 **** BA020 4 BB829 **** BB819 ****

Color After Depending On 1st Value In A Cell

Jul 3, 2009

I have another macro request.

I would like to grey out a certain qty of cells depending on the 1st number in another cell. So 1st of all it would have to check in column B to see if there is any data and then check for the first number in that cell (there will be many numbers in the cells but we only need the 1st one (Ex.: B3 = 3 / 8 & 8).

Then it should start counting from column D the found number of cells multiplied by 2.

Ex.: if Cell B3 contains 3 / 8 & 8 it will count 3 x 2 = 6 (3 cells x 2 = 6 cells)

Then, if after that count (now at I3), in the next cell over (J3) if the is data in the cell above (J2) then it should apply an Interior.ColorIndex of 15 for the next cells until there is no data in the cells above (if nothing after K2 the grey will be applied to cells J3 & K3 only).

Set ws1 = Worksheets("36hr Plan")
ws1.Unprotect "muppeticity"

I1 = 40
For I = 5 To 25 Step 5
For I1 = 22 To 204 Step 13
Offset1 = 0
If Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1, I)) Is Nothing _
Or Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1 + 1, 5)) Is Nothing _
Or Not Intersect(Target, ws1.Cells(I1 + 2, 5)) Is Nothing Then.............

Fill Color Depending On Content Of Other Cell

May 1, 2008

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.

My colleagues are working on multiple projects at once. The projects got different priority, so I'm looking for a formula that change the cell color if a person is working on it, depending on the project's priority.

For example if John is working on project: East(pri.1), South(pri.2) and West(pri.3). On East he got 5 remaining hours (cell E8). Then i would like that cell to turn red. For South green and West red.

Changing Empty Cell Background Color Depending On Different Cell Value

Aug 7, 2014

I'm trying to create a tag with a color border. What I desire is to fill the BLANK cells around the tag, A1:D1 + D1:D19 + A1:D19 + A1:19 in a certain color based on the text value of the cell B11. There are 5 different values, such that if the B11 read Red Sox - the boarder is going to be red, if it reads Houston Astros it will be dark blue, etc..

I have a similar problem with changing the color of the cell based on the month. So regardless of the year, 2014, 2015, 2016, etc... If I use MONTH() function I can just get numbers from 1-12. I want Cell C16-C18 to be certain color depending the date entered in cell C17 such that for each quarter, months 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 they are different color.

I have had no luck with conditional formatting (and I also believe that it is good up to 3 cases only). I am decent in logic/programming language but have little knowledge with macro notation and especially how to run them in excel 2013. I do know how to start it alt+F11 and that I need to make sure that code is written under the specific sheet where my tag is located.

Color Cell Fonts Based On Text Color Of TextBox Controls On UserForm

Apr 11, 2008

I have got a userform with lots of controls,

One of the action's on a large group of the controls is the same but except for one number

here is an example

If TextBox107.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell. Offset(0, 53).Font.ColorIndex = 3
If TextBox108.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 54).Font.ColorIndex = 3
If TextBox109.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 55).Font.ColorIndex = 3

This makes a cell that correlates to the textbox red if the text in the textbox is red.

Now, I loads of these textboxes that all need to run the same code with just the Offset value one digit higher than the last and I was hoping I could create a loop to avoid a huge block of code but I can't work out how to make a constant that will +1 with each loop.

Also, can I assume that a loop will start with the control with the lowest number i.e. Textbox1 and then work its way through the rest of them in order?

Cell Shading Macro Depending On Text

May 30, 2008

I will have a spreadsheet similar to the image provided. Basically, I need the macro to go row by row down column I. If the cell in column I contains the word "Tech" I need the cells from column B to P to be shaded color1; if it contains "Update," color 2; if the cell is blank; leave the cell as is. Once the macro has done this, it will continue to the next row and to the same check.

The number of rows in the spreadsheet will change on a day-to-day basis depending on the data that's pulled, but the columns should remain the same.

So I think I have the shading part. This is what I have so far. I'm not sure if this is the most efficient way of coding it, but it kinda works. I guess another problem would be if in the future the column with this info (column I) changes and shifts.

Highlighting Lowest Score Without Duplicates Highlighting And Counting Player Skins?

Feb 15, 2013

I found this spreadsheet on here and I have been trying to customize it to what I need. I am trying to have scores from skins match highlighted. I want only the minimum score to be highlighted but if there is another duplicate minimum score I don't want it to highlight anything. I also need to find a way to count the skins won by each player and have it off to the side.

For those not familiar with golf a Skin is a game where you try to get the lowest amount of strokes on a specific hole. Ex- 4 people play the hole one. P1 scores 4, P2 gets a 3, P3 and P4 get 6. The skin would go to P2 who has the lowest score on that hole.

Highlight lowest number in each column not highlighting if there are duplicates starting at L6 down to L11 and for each column till AC. And the same for the group just to the right on attached file.

On row 13 and 14 it tells me who won a skin. I want to tally up the total skins won by each player. so if Joe's names shows up twice on R14 I want it to tell me somewhere in the sheet Joe = 2
