I look everywhere to find a formula for a conditional formatting to make dues dates.
I would like to know if it's possible to do conditional formatting to make due dates turn green and yellow 90 and 180 days before their dues dates? The reason I am asking this question, it's because the column that where dates are, they are coming from a VLOOKUP formula and it's coming from another workbook.
This might be a simple answer but... if A1 had the date 1-Jan-2010, what formula would I used, within conditional formatting, to make that cell turn blue once 90 has passed? So the cell should turn blue on 1-Apr-2010.
I am trying to add something to a spreadsheet. I want to do some Conditional Formatting but I am not certain on what the formula would be to accomplish it. I am putting the Cond Format in cell E5 and I need a formula to say: IF F5 AND G5 are BLANK then do the format I set up which is simply to fill the cell with RED. (.ColorIndex = 3)
The next portion of my problem is I need to revise my VBA Coding to check and make sure that there is not any cells in Column E that have the Formatting Active. This is the portion of code I need to alter. I have changed the wording of the message but am not sure on how to change the IF statement:
'Checks to see make sure there are no Actions or Resolutions WITHOUT a Topic
If Sheets("Meeting Minutes").Range("C1").Value = "" Then 'NEEDS TO CHANGE
MsgBox "Oops! You forgot to enter a Topic for Discussion in a cell(s). You MUST have a Topic in order for your Meeting Minutes to transfer to the Master sheet." & vbCr & vbCr & "Please click OK to return to the Minutes sheet so that you may fill in the Topic(s).", vbOKOnly, "CAUTION! PLEASE Note!"
Range("D5").Select Application.ScreenUpdating = True Application.StatusBar = "" Exit Sub End If
I want to make a template in excel. Lets assume I have Opening Balance in A1 and closing balance in B1. How do I make template make new sheet and every time I make new sheets it should take the closing balance of the previous sheet as the opening balance and so on and so forth. But the very first sheet needs to have the opening balance as unlocked cell but the rest of them needs to be locked.
I have a spread sheet that shows dates when people have been assessed to be fit to carry out exercise I want to be able to put dates into a cell that are older than today e.g. 07.07.2013 and it turns the cell green then 11 months from that date the cell turns yellow and 12 months from date cell turns red. I can get conditional formatting to do this from the present date but not from older dates .
07,. 07. 2013 = Green 07.06. 2014 =Yellow 07.07.2014 = Red
I'm trying to clear conditional formatting (icon set) that I was experimenting with, but no joy at all. The only function within the "Styles" section is Cell Styles -- conditional formatting & fornat as table choices are grayed-out.
I've tried to delete and re-enter the data, clear formats, clear all, copy and paste, format painter...nothing worked.
i am working with a large data set of excel files . I need to format the sheets in a specified way . i have recorded a marco that does this . I now have the problem of creating an automatic loader that opens the files , carrys out my macro , then closes the files.
For example i have a folder X that has 10 files inside it. i would like to be able to load the first file , carry out the macro, close the file move it folder y . Then look back into Folder X , take the first file it see's , carry out the macro , close the file , move it folder y , the go back to folder x and carrying out this until all the files are done and stopping when the folder is empty
What I'm looking to do in Excel 2013 is have it so a specified cell loads an image based on the results of a range of cells.
For example: If cell B1 = red and cell B2 = up and cell B3 = yes then cell A5 shows image X.
But then have it be comprehensive enough to do If cell B1 = green and cell B2 = down and cell B3 = no then cell A5 shows image Y.
My hangups are trying to get different images to load in the same cell. Also, all the examples of this I've found are pulling from one cell where I need it to display an image based on the results of multiple cells.
I'm running Windows XP with Excel 2010. I would like to be able to have a group of 19 boxes of which each box has a unique entry, ie 1, 3B, 5C etc. Each box I'd like to have a way in which when selected only the single or dual unique characters show as a color. See attached spreadsheet with sample. When a cell with lets say 1 is selected, a drop box appears and the color and description are shown. Select a color but only show the 1 and the color selected, leaving behind the description. How can I do this for all 19 boxes. This seems like its a classic conditional format. Unfortunately it appears to be several orders of difficulty than a normal conditional format.
I'm trying to do conditional formatting that applies to an entire column (that way there are fewer conditional rules), but it only applies to a certain range of cells within that column. So what I did was setup the rule such as:
Formula I want to use:
If I copy the entire formula into a cell on the spreadsheet itself, it works just fine returning TRUE and FALSE depending on what row I'm on.
However, the above formatting rule does NOT format ANY row. But if I remove the AND function and the first condition (the one that limits which rows it's actually going to apply to) then it will work...OR if I do NOT use the INDIRECT function then it seems to work, it's some weird combonation of using the two together that is causing it to not evaluate to true.
Oh, and I thought of trying to get the formatting to work with the INDIRECT...then I put in the AND function but the only parameter was the original INDIRECT function (see below)...it stops formatting!
I'm currently trying to set up a spreadsheet on excel, when certain documents need updating. Basically I have a column with the dates in that each document was last updated, I want the cells to turn red (fill colour) if the document has not been updated within the last 6 months and orange (fill colour) if the document has not been updated in the last 4 months. How do I do this?
I am currently using Excel 2002 and am on a Windows XP computer.
I have two columns of numbers. For a row, if the right number is greater than the left number, then color it green, if it is less then color it red.
A1 = 100 B1 = 101, then B1 gets colored green A2 = 100 B2 = 99, then B2 gets colored red
I have clicked on conditional formatting with A2 selected, then chose A1 for values greater than and chose green. I then copied the formula for all rows. I then did the same for values less than and chose red.
It is not coloring the cells correctly. On some rows when B
I have data in several columns going left to right. In column N I subtract column H from column I and then in column O I subtract column I from column J. I then use conditional formatting to indicate whether column N is greater than 45 and column O is less than 120, using different formats for each. If the cell value does not meet the condition then there is no conditional formatting used in that cell.
I want to subtotal each column to indicate the amount over or under 45 in column N and over and under 120 in column O and I would like to know if I can do it using the colors in each cell. Most rows do not meet either condition but a few rows do meet both conditions and I don't think sorting and subtotaling is not going to give me what I want.
I have about 7,000 rows in this worksheet and I am going to be removing lines and then maybe adding them back and I would like to track the balances as the data gets moved around. I can use Window Watch for that.
I am using Excel 2007, don't know how to write VBA and would really like a solution that does not use VBA.
I have a spreadsheet where we track our contractor's Worker's Comp and General Liability insurance certificate expiration dates. I want the expiration date to highlight in red if it is expired and to highlight in orange if it will expire within 30 days or less.
I have attached a testing sheet similar to what I'm working on. The F column has the dates that need to highlight. I have MS Excel 2010.
I am trying to do a conditional formatting based on the result in one cell but it needs to add up multiple cells first to determine which conditional format it needs to use. I am not sure whether I need to do a formula conditional format or whether to use cell is greater than with =sum() in it. I have tried both but neither seem to be working correctly. I have attached an example of the spreadsheet and the conditions I am trying. I am using 2010 version.
Basically, the closing amount for Monday in prod 1 (cell c4), needs to display in red if sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4) & Fri (R4) is greater than that value or display in amber if the sum of the cumm value for Tuesday (L4), Wed (N4), Thur (P4).
I need to complete the same for the whole column for Monday (col C) for each appropriate product. Then the same for column B but this will sum different cells but the principal will be the same.
