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), that’s all I’m interested in ( multiple locations).

What I’ve 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 don’t 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.

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?

In a macro I want to automatically insert a formula in several cells. The formula depends on other cells, and I want to be able to manipulate these cells with variables. Here is my code:

[Code] .....

All my variables are declared:

Sheets("DATOS YTD 2014").Cells(I, Semana + 1) is the cell I want to be able to chose due to the variables Sheets("DATOS YTD 2014").Cells(I, 3) is the reference cell for the VLOOKUP formula, that will vary with I SheetMonth.Range("B3:W172") is a range in the sheet SheetMonth which is fixed

The error message I receive is the following: "Run-time error 13, Type mismatch"

I precise that the next step is to make the ",6," part in the vlookup formula also variable... but I guess once my current issue is solved this one will be a piece of cake.

I need a macro that will "examine" the text of column B for every row checking to see if the text "Proper Text" is in the cell and if not, execute this code for that cell and then move on to perfrom the same until it finds an empty cell:

I have a list of names in column B and either a 1 or 0 in column A as below:

0 A B 1 1 Bob 2 0 Chan 3 0 Lucy 4 1 Billy

On another worksheet I want to be able to list only the names with a 1 in column A. This must be done in another worksheet so I have something like below.

I have two cells, A1 = Yes/No and B1 = Date. I want to restrict someone inputting a date into B1 until A1 is marked as Yes...? I've tried data validation, but seem to be hitting a wall with it...

I'd like to lock some cells depending on what is put in a particular cell. As shown by the file attached, if the first column (Amendments) has a "no" in A4, I'd like to lock out cells B4:D4. (The sheet will be protected). If it's a "yes" then the cells are unlocked. I'd like to then apply this to all subsequent rows (i.e. lock B5:D5 if a "no" in A5 etc.)

How to a change a cell colour to say red in B6 if cell b12 = 1 and if e6 = 1 to change to green. I thought I might be able to use conditional formatiing but no. I had set the spread sheet to do a cell just for a condition representing a sum from another worksheet and it was working fine but i have to incorporate the two together and am stock.

I have a spreadsheet that can do more than one calculation on each row

ITEM FLOW (l/s)

[Code]....

The values in row A can only be selected from a named range drop down. If no entry is there (i.e. blank) then i'd ideally like the cells to return from black to white.

I have attached the sample file where I have noted what I want as a comment. I need to check for the value " Function Name: RF Pick" if this is there then the code should move 2 rows down check whether that row has the value " Each" if its there just move one row down and move the cells as I need in the output.

I'd like help writing a single formula that assigns either a numerical 1 or 0 to a cell based on values from two other cells.

By way of background, I'm working with three columns. Cells in column F contains values from 1 to 4. Cells in column G contain values from 5 to 11. Cells in column H are currently blank.

I need a single formula that will insert either a numerical 1 or a 0 into column H according to the following conditions.If F3 = 1 and G3 = 5 or 6 or 7 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0 If F3 = 2 and G3 = 7 or 8 or 9 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0 If F3 = 3 and G3 = 9 or 10 or 11 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0 If F3 = 4 and G3 = 9 or 10 or 11 then let H3=1 otherwise let H3=0

Afternoon everyone i am having abit of trouble working on an excel 2007 spreadsheet. In cell I1 i have a tab called Color. i want the cells below I1 to be filled with one of 3 colors green, yellow, or red depending on whats in cell F "Status" (closed or open - in progress) and cell G ECD for estimated completion date.

Green - i need it to fill green if status is closed. Yellow - need it to fill yellow if ECD is any date greater than today and if status is open. Red - need it to fill red if ECD is todays date or older and status is open.

In what would be Cell E2 I want to post the Total posted set Assuming that the Order Numbers and the OP Numbers are the Same, but only if there is a value in the allowed set, So I'd expect E2 in the case below to read 1.83,

Order No OP Posted Set Allowed Set 30761157 00100.731.500 3076115700100.500.000 3076115700100.600.000 3076461000100.000.000 3076461000101.050.500 3076524400100.000.000 3076524400100.550.500 3076639600100.000.000 3076639600101.180.500 3076810900100.000.000 3076862900100.000.000 3076862900100.000.000 3076862900100.000.000

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

I have a couple of spreadsheets that has several columns each containing several hundred thousand rows of codes. To quickly analyze this data, I am trying to come up with a conditional formatting formula to highlight the respective cells when specific values occur next to each other. A particular code will show up in many cells, but the code that is the respective adjacent cell is always different. I need to know when row A contains, for example, '9928559' and row B contains '36415RT'.

On the attached sheet I am trying to indicate that enough data has been entered by highlighting the entire column. Any 3 cells in Rows 7-13 and 18-36 will be filled in with any of the values from cells O6-O11 (hidden). When the total = 6 i would like to highlight the entire column to indicate it has been completed.

The aim is two fold: to ensure that the correct number of points is allocated in each race, and secondly to indicate which column is the next to be filled in (as human error sometimes misses the column and adds the points to either the previous or next columns). You could call it idiot proofing the sheet. At present i have the cells in Row 37 conditional formatted to show this, but would much prefer the entire column to highlight.

I need to highlight a cell when its value exceeds parameters based on the production line it comes from. If the line is K11, then i need this cell to highlight when its value is either < 0 or greater than 221. If the line is K21, than it needs to highlight when its value is <0 or greater than 474.

this seems like such a simple thing to do but I just cannot suus it out. Basically I want to Highlight a cell depending on another cells value:

ie. I have a value in Cell A1 and a value in Cell B1, in Cell C1 I have an IF statement that dsplays the word 'NO' if the values in A1 & B1 are not equal. In Cell D1 I have the word Fault. I would like to highlight Cell D1 if the Cell C1 displays the word 'NO'

What is the line of code in VBA that allows me to highlight a range of cells (in a column) to the end of the range? e.g. Selection is A2, highlight to end of range in column A. I know this is simple, but I'm new to VBA. Unsuccessful searching the posts.

Is there a way to automaticaly highlight multiple cells if there is data in two other cells else were? What kind of programming will I have to use. I.E. highlight cells D1:E15 only if there is data in cells A:2 & B2

I have a large document control register and it is updated daily and posted to a cloud for many people to access. It is very time consuming to constantly jump in and out and highlight and unhighlight as many things as there are and keeping track of which items that need to be unhighlighted. The thing I'm trying to figure out is if there is a formula for this...If i change any cell in a row I want the row to highlight itself entirely, but after 24 hours I want the highlight to expire. Is there a formula or function I can use to make this happen?

I have a worksheet 200+ rows with 7 columns (euro lottery numbers) I had great help last night to highlight any matching numbers. I'm getting lazy now, can anyone help with a formula to highlight a cell in an adjacent column when 2 or more numbers in the corresponding cells match the winning numbers, I know all I have to do is look down the columns and check but if a simple formula could be inserted it would save me perhaps missing something.

The Special GoTo function doesn't have a listing for highlighting (going to) only protected or (preferribly) unprotected cells. Is there an easy way to do this?

I need to highlight cells for all of the products and rates I need to get pricing for. I have a macro that goes out to my data and pulls in each different rate and program (columns BM:BN). That macro also sets the first note rate in the range to the lowest of the group, so this will always be different.

I now manually highlight each cell that I need to get pricing, but would like to create a macro that looks up those codes and rates in column BM:BN and highlights the cells for me. I need it to highlight in all 7 boxes. I've attached a sample worksheet of what it looks like after I highlight the cells.
