Color Cells Automatically..

Dec 28, 2008

I have this scenario which i need to automate it. I have 5 colums P1,P2,P3,P4,P5. It contains W or L combinations.

In my Column F i Concatenate(A2,B2,C2,D2) together and it follows on for the rest.

Now i have some criteria which i am going to search in my Column G. In Cell I1 i will list my combination to search. It can be as follows :

WWWW
LLLL
WWW
LLL

So what i need to do is search my F column for this possible match. If it is a match I need to color the my Player 1 to Player 5 for that match. I have shown in my example inside the excel. I know the formula for how to find for matches using my combination. But i got no idea on how i can color it with the respective colors automatically.

Yellow = all four W
Red= all four L
Green= will have 3 W and one L
Blue = have three L and one W

Cells Automatically Change Color

Sep 25, 2007

I have been given a spreadsheet that turns whole rows different colours when certain data is entered into a cell. I want to locate the code and use it elsewhere, but cant find it?

I have looked at all of the change related procedures in the drop downs, for the Workbook e.g.

Workbook_SheetChange

but no matter where I cant seem to find any code at all.

Is there a way of exporting every line of code and then open this file in notepad to skim through it?

how I might find the code that is making the rows turn different colours?

Automatically Color Cells In Relation To Data Entered

Aug 30, 2013

how to do basic formulas in Excel but I are hoping that there is a macro or a VBA or something that can be made which might work for what i need.

I have decided to start a small tour shop (I make the reservations for guests with a hotel in the area and take them on tours of our region) and are looking to make a booking sheet for each month. Nothing complicated just simple. see the attached .xlsx file.

I was wondering if there is a way that when the fields in column A & B are filled in if it could automatically color the corresponding dates in for the same row in the calendar area? like I have manually done on sheet "October 2013"

Row Color To Automatically Change To Blue (color 5) (bgcolor = #0000FF)

Oct 22, 2009

In my Excel 2003 worksheet, I need the row color to automatically change to blue (color 5) (bgcolor = #0000FF) - when the user changes the text from VALID to INVALID in the range: B3:B65000.

For example:

Cell B5 contains the text: VALID

When the user changes the text in the field to read: INVALID - then I need the row range: A5:W5 to change to the color blue.

Color Column Charts Based On Font Color Data Cells

Oct 27, 2009

I have attached the relevant spreadsheet for which I need to alter the color of the columns based on Site number ( Sheet 1). % Mortality will be represented in the Y-Axis, and the Site numbers would be on the X-Axis. All columns (% Mortality) except one will be of the same color, and the one of a different color will indicate a specific site. As an example, site 86 is colored differently. The way I require the chart to look is shown on Sheet 1.

After reading through some great posts on Ozgrid, I managed to do this using conditional formatting (Sheet 2), but that sort of falls short because I am required to add a data table to the chart, and the parameter that is indicated by the column bars happens to appear twice in the data table.

I was wondering if this can be automated maybe using VBA, but with the possibility of simply matching the color of columns with the font color of respective entry in the data series.

Automatically Run Udf When Color Is Changed

May 2, 2007

I have a UDF that goes like this:

Function SumIfPurple(inputRange As Range, _
answerRange1 As Range, _
answerRange2 As Range) As Variant
Dim SumAnswer As Variant

'If inputRange is turned purple then it is equal to anserRange1, if it is left with no fill it is equal to answerrange2.

If inputRange.Interior.ColorIndex = 39 Then
SumAnswer = answerRange1.Value
Else
SumAnswer = answerRange2.Value
End If
SumIfPurple = SumAnswer
End Function

I would like to have a sub that will have the formula automatically calculate when the inputRange's color is changed.

Color Cells Based On Color Of Preceeding Cell

Nov 18, 2007

I am looking for a very simple script that will achieve the following:

On the clicking of a button, Select and shade in a cell yellow, delete the yellow shading of the previous cell. The shading & selection should move up a column of cells, 1 at a time, in the following order:

From B10 to B9, then B9 to B8, B8 to B7 etc until the selection and shading is at B2. Once it is at B2 subsequent clicks will simply keep it at B2 (the top). Thus after 8 clicks the shading & selection should travel from B10 to B2, with only 1 cell being shaded yellow and selected at any one time.

Macro To Color Cells Based On Their Font Color

Jun 18, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that i download from the net daily, which is seperated into columns of information.

I want to be able to look down a column and mark a cell in a seperate column if the cell font text is red.

How To Automatically Color Highlight The Rows

Apr 1, 2014

I am working on a very long worksheet and creating a macro to automatically highlight the row that I am working on

Ex: If I am on row 2 I can use a shortcut to highlight it in blue when I am done working on it I can use another short cut to remove the highlight

Or if I am working on row 5 and 6 I can highlight 2rows or more but still able to remove the color after.

I am wondering if I can have different shortcuts for color blue, green and yellow and another shortcut for removing it.

Automatically Color Rows Based On Cell Value

Dec 10, 2007

I currently use spreadsheets to report on backup processes.

I am trying to speed up this process and one thing that woudl help me is a function that will automatically fill the row with a colour depending on the choice in the dropdown box, so if you choose 'successful' from the dropdown list the row colour would fill to green and if you select 'failed', the row would change to red and a choice of 'completed/errors' would result in orange.

This process is currently done manually and often results in errors like a succesful result with a red filling.

Is there anyway to automate this process? i was trying to whip up a macro, but have been unsuccessful so far.

Worksheet Cell Automatically Highlights In Different Color When It Is Selected

Mar 6, 2013

I occasionally give presentations with Excel and would like to make it easier for the audience to see a particular cell when I move to it. The cursor can be tiny, and some people have a hard time seeing the cursor, so I use the keyboard to navigate to the cells I talk about. Yet, the cell, which then has a border around it, still can be hard to see.

Is there a way in Excel to have a cell that is highlighted, that is I move to a cell with the keyboard, so that it pops out in a different font color or background or format, when I move to it, and it automatically reverts to its usual format and color when I move away from it?

Refresh/Recalculate Custom Color Function Automatically

May 31, 2008

I have this spreadsheet with tons of vba coding. The intent of the spreadsheet is to track invoices as it goes through the approval process. The part that is giving me issues is the first and seventh column. The seventh column is actually a formula that returns how many days between the invoice due date and todayís date. The coding works fine, with one small glitch. Once the dates have been entered, the first column (which contains the color-coding) stops changing colors. What it should do is anything with 0 or less days remaining should show red, between 1 to 10 days, show yellow and anything above 10 days, show green.

So if I enter an invoice with 11 days remaining to pay, it will show green in the first column, but when I open the spreadsheet tomorrow, it remains green, even though it should show yellow.
What I want it to do is refresh every time it is opened, or every day, which ever is easier. There are reasons that we cannot use conditional formatting, one of them being that we want to expand the color coding system to more than 3 colors soon, but I want to get this working correctly first.

This is what I have. I cannot attach the spreadsheet because it contains confidential information.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

Dim h As Integer
Dim i As Integer
Dim j As Integer
Dim lastRow As String
Dim fRowValue As String
Dim gRowValue As String
Dim mRowValue As String
Dim rRowValue As String
Dim uRowValue As String
Dim paidCheck As String
Dim stringAnswer As String
Dim testAnswer As String
Dim testDate As String

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

lastRow = ActiveSheet.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row

For j = 8 To lastRow
If Not Intersect(Cells(j, 2), Target) Is Nothing Then ...................

Worksheet Calculate Event To Automatically Change The Color Of A Cell

Jan 30, 2009

I am trying to use the worksheet calculate event to automatically change the color of a cell only when that particular cell changes. In E2 of the worksheet is a formula use to determine rating based on the result of 2 other cells. The rating is classified as follows

Low
Moderate
High
Maximum

I would like to generate a different set of color to the cell and fonts for each of the rating. For example,

"Cyan" to the cell E1 and E2 with Black font if the result is "Low"
"Plum" to the cell E1 and E2 with "Black font if the result is "Moderate"
"Blue" to the cell E1 and E2 with "White" font if the result is "High" and
"Red" to the cell E1 and E2 with "White" font if the result is "Maximum"

Automatically Color Fill Rows Based On Changing Column Information

Jun 24, 2009

I would like to automatically color fill a series of rows based on like information from a single column. When the information in the column changes then the rows would either stop filling (this would be best) or fill with a different color until the information changes again.

Summary: series of alternating rows would either be filled or unfilled based on changes from the column information.

Hope this isn't too confusing. Below is an example except I would want the cells filled, not the text or numbers to change. The highlight is changing based on the changing of the numbers.

ABCD 12345
ABD 12345
ABCD 12349
ABDF 12349
ABCD 12358
ABF 12358

Excel 2010 :: Color Fill A Range Of Cells If Specific Cells Not Blank

Feb 7, 2013

I am using Excel 2010 and basically i am trying to fill a range of cell with a green color if any value was enter in a specific cells. Example: I would like to fill range: A10:c13 with a green color (regardless of the cells content in this range) if a value was entered in cell C10 or C11 or C12 or C13.

I've tried conditional formatting but unfortunately I'll have to apply formatting for every cell and for a range of over hundred cells is not efficient.

Iím trying to make my life a bit easier, by adding a few macros and formulas to the spreadsheet (Everything was done completely manually before I got here!!!).
What I would like to do is take two columns, which contain a start and end time for work shifts, and colour them GREEN once I have entered a name in the Worker column (Along side the two with the time), and also to fill a cell with a Yes or a No. Iím aware of auto conditioning, and Iíve tried to have a play to get this to work, but I just canít work it out.
I have posted a link to an image which shows what I want. I hope I've explained it well enough!

Automatically Change Cell (With Time) Color After Time Period Has Passed

May 23, 2008

I have a protected worksheet. Users wish to be able to track changes in the input cells. The suggested approach for this is to temporarily disable sheet protection and allow them to change the font color, then protect afterwards. What I would like to do is:

i) check whether they are in an input cell
ii) if so, then prompt the user with the 'Font Color' dialog box
iii) apply the font color selected to the input cell

I'm struggling to find the dialog box I need. I can launch the one to change the interior color, no problem (Application.Dialogs(xlDialogPatterns).Show). But that's no use to me, I just want a color palette that specifically relates to the Font Color

Color Blank Cells In A Row Between 2 Cells With Specific Number

Jan 31, 2013

I have a similar question regarding coloring of empty cells between two cells with specific numbers as posted in below thread : [URL] .....

This is exactly what I want. But here I have some problem with formula.

=COUNTIF(A1:Z1,1)=1

Above formula could pick cell value 1 and color the empty cells in a row between the cells having value=1. But if I want to use the same formatting for other numbers like 2 or 3 it doesn't work.

For example in row(A1:Z1) I have A1=1, D1=1, and F1=2, K1=2, and O1=3, U1=3

I required multiple conditional formatting that could color the cells based on values first from A to D then from F to K and finally from O to U.

I'm using above formatting it works with cells having values 1 but its not working for 2, 3 or any other cells values.

I have already tried replacing 1 in above formula with 2 and 3 but it doesn't work.
