Keyword Search - Macros To Change Font Color For Specific Keywords (not Entire Cell)
May 5, 2014
I need to conduct keyword searches in excel and color the keywords a different color without changing the font color of the entire cell. now, i found some code from another thread that does this, but i cant seem to get it to work with more than 2 keywords. i need fine-tuning the provided code to do what i need it to do.
the VBA code i used was this:
I was playing around with the example, the Cat_Mouse.xlsm, and when i modified the 'myList' and 'myColor' arrays, it does not work.
For example, I modified the code to add the word bat:
When i run the macros, the word "Bat" does not become colored red. interestingly enough, when i substitute the word "bat" for the word "hat" in the "myLIST array, the word "hat" does change to the red font.
I am looking to use this code to address keywords in my excel file by coloring all key words red and i have more than 10 key words.
I'm trying to have a macro run to search a specific column (S) for a particular text value "y" and if true it will change the font to bold and the color to red for the entire row of the cell that contains the "y". the column is part of a data table that is constantly refreshed not sure if that makes a difference or not.
I have two columns. The first one (A) contains cells that have different Fill colors. The second column (B) contains text adjacent to the colored cells. I am trying to change the color of the text in the second column (B) to the corresponding color in the adjacent cell in the first column (A). I don't think conditional formating works well in this situation. I believe the solution would be some sort of macro.
I have font color white in blank cells in column E and I (from row 5 to row 245) so the visitors will not see the text. If any of these cells become yellow (color code is 6), the font color will become black so visitors can see the text alot far better than white. I've tried this code myself after this post but nothing happen
This appears to be so simple, I've searched the forums and have found almost the right VB code but not quite. I have a 3000 row spreadsheet with various columns. Column M can either be PASS, FAIL, REJECTED, IN PROGRESS or NOT ASSESSED. I need the rows (A to M inclusive) to change colour and text colour dependent on this condition.
I almost had an answer with Select.Case but I couldn't get the formula to work with text, only numbers.
I have a database which I want to send to my peers. I want to set a rule which will enable me to keep track of the data which are changed. For instance, in a cell if someone edit that number, the color will change from black to red.
I have a spreadsheet that contains the 5 digit numbers in the rows and the columns respecstively. I'd like a formular or macro to change font color for each cell. If the combined value of the 5 rows are greater or less than the combined range 87030 and 87200, the 5 cells will be changed to Red. If:.........
I have a spreadsheet that will contain about 5-15 rows with a letter "S" in the column. If this letter S appears in the column, I need its entire row to change font color to RED and then change that row's value in column L to a negative number. is there any easy way to do this?
how to format a row based on text that is in a certain column. For instance, if a cell in column B has text in it I need to format the entire rest of the row with a certain background color and text color. I've been searching around here for a while and I think I'm really close, but I just can't seem to nail it down. Here's the code that I've worked on so far.
Dim SrchRng3 Dim c3 As Range
Set SrchRng3 = ActiveSheet.Range("B1", ActiveSheet.Range("B65536").End(xlUp))
Set c3 = SrchRng3.Find("Europe - *", LookIn:=xlValues) Do
Via conditional formatting, I am searching to change the color of a specific word in a cell (not the color of everything in the cell, but only that specific word - and the word repeats in the cell). A function such as =isnumber(search("NOK";A1)) colors all the cell values, which I do not want to do. How i can perform this task?
I have an existing macro that takes my sheet and puts it in body of email.
how do i add to it to change the entire worksheet's font?
Code: Function RangetoHTML(rng As Range) Dim fso As Object Dim ts As Object Dim sTempFile As String Dim objWB As Workbook Dim i As Long Dim iLastRow As Long sTempFile = Environ$("temp") & "/" & Format(Now, "dd-mm-yy h-mm-ss") & ".htm"
try explaning this again....Also conditional formatting will not work... Looking for a formula in excel to do this--- I have a lottery numbers system in the 3 digit and 4 digit numbers...In row A we have the 3 digit that were drawn about 3000 ---3 digit numbers and in row C we have also 3000 numbers for the 4 digit ....All we need to do is Highlight All the even numbers and make them RED font---in the 3 and 4 digit rows... Is there a way to do that????? A--row-----C--row 123---------4429--make the 2red in the 3 digit row and 442red in the 4 digit row. 033---------5579--nothing in this row 229---------2200---etc....
I am wanting to be able to find the last row of data (range changes on a monthly basis) and change the colour of the font to white for the entire row. I don't want to delete the row as contains totals but want the font not visable.
I'm trying to use Excel to keep team standings for a baseball board game. I had no problem calculating wining percentage. Finally figured out how to calculate 'games behind.' Now I'm wondering if there is a way to change the font color of a team name based on their wining pct?
A typical row contains: A2(Team Name), B2 (Wins), C2 (Losses), D2 (Pct (B2/(B2+C2)), E2 (GB). Is there a way to use the IF function to return the 'Team Name' in green if D2>.500, 'Team Name' in red if D2<.500, and 'Team Name' in black if D2=.500 ??
I am trying to figure out what the formula would be to change the font color if the entered number is less than the quota.
I'm making a spreadsheet for work that each of the reps will punch in their daily numbers, and, for example, if there quota was 70 and they are <70 than the font will turn red, and if greater or equal to 70 it will turn green.
macro that will change the cell color based on text? I have a list of titles in column B. Everytime the word 'Car' is found in this column, I would like to change the font color in columns C-G to the color white within the same row.
I have a user that was recently upgraded to Excel 2003. He has a problem when changing font color in a cell. Anytime he changes the color of the font to red and then clicks another cell the color reverts back to Black. Now when he clicks on the cell it displays the color red in the formula bar but no in the cell. it also displays the correct color in hte print preview screen. this happens no matter what Excel file he is wokring in.
Is there a macro or code snippet that can change the color of the font while i am typing in the cell. Means that if the font color int he cell is originally RED, i can type and change it to another color using VB code.
Using conditional formatting I can change the font color (to blue) of a cell if it meets a certain criteria. Now what I would like is to display a message when the color changes to blue. The cell range is E26 to E40.
I'm trying to get the font to turn red in column G if it is greater than or equal to column I, and get it to turn orange if it is between 80% of I and I. This is what I've got so far.
Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) If Range("G" & Target.Row) >= Range("I" & Target.Row) Then Range("G" & Target.Row).Font.ColorIndex = 3 If Range("G" & Target.Row) >= Range(("I" & Target.Row) * 0.8) Then Range("G" & Target.Row).Font.Color = 45 End Sub
