## Cell Change Colour Large Document?

Sep 14, 2012

Right I want to change a cell interior colour when another cell value is exceeded. I can do this but what I am after because I have over 56 colums and 390 rows I dont want to do this for each one is there a quicker way ? I have this so far which is for one cell only...

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
With Selection
If [E8] > [E10] Then
[E8].Interior.ColorIndex = 3
Selection.Interior.Pattern = xlSolid
Else
[E8].Interior.ColorIndex = 0
Selection.Interior.Pattern = xlSolid
End If
End With
End Sub

## Count Cell Colour On Conditionally Formatted Cells?

Aug 5, 2014

spread sheet that I need to do for work. Unfortunately I do not have excel on my home computer to be able to attach a spread sheet

The spreadsheet has one column (A) with a list of questions. The column next to this (B) has either a red or yellow cell in each row (a red cell would be a high risk to the business if the answer to the question in that row was no, and a yellow cell indicates a moderate risk to the business in the answer to the question in the row was no).

The third column (C) is conditionally formatted so if a 'y' was placed in any of the cells they would turn green. If 'n' is placed in any of the cells the cell would change to either red or yellow (this would depend on what the colour was in column B).

I need to know a formula to count cells by colour. So the number of red, yellow and green cells in column C would be counted automatically into a totals box for each colour at the bottom of the spreadsheet. I have tried some online suggestions but couldn't get these to work for cells that had been conditionally formatted. I'm not the most experienced person with spreadsheets (this time last week I couldn't add two cells together)

The final thing I need from the spreadsheet (and I'm not even sure if this is possible) is for a total box to be colour co-ordinated based on the number of red, yellow and green cells in column C. I would need the total box to be green if all column c is green, yellow if three or less cells in column C are yellow and red if any of the cells in column C are red or there are more than 3 yellow cells in column C.

## Count The Number Of Cells With A Particular Colour AND SPECIFIC Text?

Jan 15, 2014

I have a spreadsheet where i would like to 'count' the number of cells with a particular colour AND SPECIFIC text (not 'any text').

I attach a xls with the initials of the person in column A, their colour as seen in cells in next four columns with the particular text in each cell. Therefore, for 'ABC1', in the given range, I would like to count how many cells have been allocated with the particular colour (brown, do not know colour index) and the particular text (1 or 2 or 4 or 5) in the range A1:CK39. Haven't supplied the actual sheet for confidentiality reasons.

## Formula For Multiple Count - Without Subtotalling For Each Document And Then A Count

I have a transactional data set with a line for each transaction and I am looking to count the number of documents (each contains multiple transactions) against criteria.....

It looks something like this.....

Column A Column B
Document No Category
11000001 A
11000002 B

## Colour 7 Cells In A Row And Then Switch Colour?

Jul 17, 2014

So I have a macro that colors the selected cells in a certain color. Now im looking for a code that will switch that color every 7th cell, the cells will only be selected horizontally. For example:

if the selected range is 10 cells, 7 of them should be in one color and 3 of the should be in another. But if the selected range is 15 cells the first 7 should have one color and the next 7 should have another and then the last one should have the first color again, and so on..

## Cells Colour Equal To Another Cells Colour

Jul 19, 2012

I want a cell to be equal to another cell including the colour, conditional formatting as the colour will have no relevance to the cell value i.e. the colour will be set manually dependant on what stage of the lifecycle it is at

The original cell may have a date and be yellow and I want the target cell to be yellow with the same date, if someone then changes the original cell to be red the target cell should automatically change to Red

Is there an easy way to do this or do I need some VB script?

## Count By Colour (Text) With Other Criteria

Sep 25, 2007

I have used the following Formula to count the number of times that ABC occurs in red text within the listed range, and it works fine

=PERSONAL.XLS!CountByColorText(\$G\$4:\$R\$211,3,TRUE,"ABC")

I now want to count the number of times that (F) occurs in red text within the listed range, the difference being that (F) is always only the last three digits in the cell eg ABC (F)

I have tried this formula =PERSONAL.XLS!CountByColorText(\$G\$4:\$R\$211,3,TRUE,"*(F)*")and get 0, which is incorrect

## Searching For Mistakes In Document While Using Another Document As Reference

Feb 2, 2014

I am processing a fair few Invoices, which are being sent to me via e-mail as excel documents, very often they contain mistakes, a decent amount of mistakes. Usually the prices are wrong.

I keep track of every single entry on the invoice on my own document - Tracker, which I consider to be the superior/more correct document to the Invoice presented to me by my contractor.

Both of the documents have a reference number, which is a specific docket number, and horizontally, in the invoice, there is going to be a price for this docket. In my document, there is going to be a separate column for the total price.

Is it possible (I guess with VBA) to check for mistakes in the Invoice, but use the Tracker as a reference for this check.

Tracker has
columns
A - Name
B - Department
C - Date
D - Docket No.
C - Total price for the docket (calculation of E to Z)
E to Z - all smaller entries

Invoice has
columns
A - Date
B - Docket No.
C to E price for that docket, but it is spread, because departments are separated out, so each VAT account can be charged accordingly. I guess it is possible to do a separate column for the price, if it is easier to do a script that way.

Basically, I need to check if in the Invoice document, the price (C to E) for Docket No. (B) is the same as the price (C) for the Docket No. (D) in the Tracker.

I would like the wrong entries to be highlighted on the Invoice Document, so I can see straight away, that this needs attention.

Not always the price is wrong, sometimes the Docket No. is spelled incorrectly (Dyslexic contractor), hence the highlighting.

## Locking Text In Cells But Not The Ability To Change Colour Of Cells With Mouse Click

Mar 5, 2013

Locking text in cells but not the ability to change colour of cells

marginheight="0" vspace="0" hspace="0" allowtransparency="true" scrolling="no" id="aswift_0" name="aswift_0" style="left: 0px; position: absolute; top: 0px;">*********>

## Populate Excel Cells With Specific Text From Word Document

Jul 22, 2014

Let me start by stating that I am a novice at writing macro script. I am trying to write a script that will open and search a Word doc, find specific text in that document, and populate certain excel cells with that information.

Ex. of Word doc:

5.1.2.3 Install gasket [12], using bolt [5] and nut [8].

I would like the script to search for and populate any number between the [ ] into a specific excel cell, also I would like it to identify and populate an excell cell with the associated step, e.g.: "5.1.2.3", which will be at the begining of that step (step could be several sentences long). Also, I would like the script to look for and identify/populate an excel cell with any number of words such as: "install", "uninstall", "break", "scrap", or "remove" also associated with that step.

Dim rngColors As Range
Dim rngCell As Range
