Conditional Formatting Certain Cells When Another Cell Is Highlighted
I want to change (via conditional formatting) the background colour of cell H64 and K72 when I select / highlighted / activate (i.e. just left click in the cell) cell C66.

I don't seem to be able to find in the formulae something to indicate if C66 is selected / highlighted /activated.

How To Have A Message Pop Up And Blink For A Few Seconds Then Go Away
With all the formulas working (or at least through testing so far they are), I am now in the make the worksheets fancy mode.

I want to have a message pop up when the leader of the meet changes. I would love it if it would blink for a few seconds to alert the individuals looking at the worksheet but then it would disapear so as not to be annoying.

For example:
In event 1, team a is first, and team b is second.
Event 2 finishes, and I post the results in the spreadsheet.

In event 2, team b takes over the lead and team a is now second Place.

I wold like a message to appear (for a few seconds) saying (and blinking something like "Team A, Just Took Over 1st Place!" and then goes away.

Trying To Use Vba Code To Evaluate Each Row In A Highlighted Selection
I have a worksheet (with if statements) that I throw numbers from a report into and it uses those if statements to calculate the number of items and money earned. The problem is that sometimes employees use different key words for their items so the formulas dont pick them up and this skews their results for the month. Also it's hard to see where someone messed so I'm trying to write a code that reads each row for a given selection and calculates the sum and if that sum is 0 then we can look for where the employee made an error. This is what I have:

Dim RngToSum As Range
Set RngToSum = Selection.Rows
For Each Row In RngToSum
If Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(RngToSum) = "0" Then
MsgBox "Lets play find the error"
Selection.Rows.Interior.ColorIndex = 3 'red
Else Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(RngToSum) 0 Then
MsgBox "Congrats there's no errors"
End If
End Sub

The problem with the code is that I want it to read every line and if there's no errors then have it say "congrats no errors" after ALL rows have been checked because right now it pulls a msgbox per row and I don't want to go through hundreds of no error msgboxes. However, if even just one line has an error then have a msgbox come up.

Also there's something weird where this code wont pick up an error for a row if i highlight two rows (one row without an error and one with) but if i highlight just rows of zeros then it'll pick it up.

Unable To Get The Highlighted Section To Work
I am editing a Macro from a guy that has left my work and I am unable to get the Highlighted Section to work. In Section 'Paste Values & Formats it appears to work fine until it get down to Selection.PasteSpecial.Paste = x1PasteValuesAndNumberFormats and it throws you out. Is this because the Macro is generating a new workbook….?

In regards to the other sections; I am unsure if it does or does not work because every time I go down to it in Debug mode it highlights it as an error…

No matter what I try, I cannot get the form to initialize without effecting this box. If I delete the box and recreate it, another box simply inherits this problem.

I have attached the spreadsheet, please Click the button over "A1" to see what I mean if you have the time.

Conditonal Formatting Formulas: Value Between 90% And 94% Will Be Highlighted In Orange
In the attached spreadsheet you can see I have a chart with three columns. In the third column, I've inserted a conditional formatting formula so that any value between 90% and 94% will be highlighted in orange. What I'd like to do, based on the results in the third column which I've already formatted, is have the other two columns in the same rows highlighted in orange as well. For instance, you see that the 92.30% is highlighted in the third column because it is a value between 90% and 94% per my formula. When that is true, I would also like the 56.02% and the $4,100 (the two cells to its left) highlighted in the same color. I'm not sure how to accomplish this.

Highlighted Description Whilst Hovering Over Lists
As part of a working spreadsheet there is a section which records faults by way of a numerical list in a dropdown menu. When a number is chosen the fault description appears in the adjacent cell. Is it possible when the mouse hovers over a number in the list the first 20 characters of the fault description could be shown before the fault number is chosen? The attached file is a simple example of the fault numbers and descriptions, in reality some of the faults have longer descriptions with more technical detail.

Make A Cell Value = The Furthest Value To The Right
How do I make a cell value update to equal the furthest value to the right in the same row?

This cell just needs to look along the right in its own row and grab the value furthest away to the right. It will be a letter value, not a number. eg, AB or AC or AD or AE. It will not (in this case) need to look further than about 150 columns or cells.

If/then To Make Cell Blank
I am using a “borrowed” formula from a coworker that I do not really understand however it is working for me, sort of.


What this does is read the range of cells and immediately fails a quality check if it is in a critical cell, or fails if multiple non critical items fail.

I want to use an if/then to make cell blank if there is no data in one particular cell (which means no quality inspection performed). Here is what I tried:


The leaving the cell blank part of the formula works however it allows the remainder of the formula to only work if “fail” appears in the first cell it reads (in this case V18). If the “fail” appears in any of the other critical cells, it does not work at all.

Also as a side project not sure what the substituting to $R$2 does so if anyone knows how to clean this up, let me know.

The other two segments I just have the year-end sales and the dollar increase in each quarter. Is there a way to solve in excel for the missing quarters. So each of the four segments would have to add up to the total sales for both the quarter and the year. I've attached my example spreadsheet too. There are two cells missing highlighted in blue but i'm going to try to obtain that data. provided i fill in those two blanks, is there way to back into the rest of this spreadsheet?

Make A Cell's Values Become A Formula
I have on my Sheet named "Data" in Cell K4


The values of that cell become a formula.

I try to make a macro that pastes 'Data'!K4 into 'Data'!L3 and then have that formula functioning in cell 'Sheet1'!A31.

The problem is when I try to make a macro to do this it will always paste the values that were recorded during the macro rather than the unique formula that is created via cell 'Data'!K4 at the time.

Is there any way to have A31 actively using the values that are created with 'Data'!K4? at all times?
