Making A Cell Change Background Color Based On If Positive Or Negative Sum Total

Jul 3, 2006

I have excel sheet with colored cells.

Positive cash flow cells all have green background,
Negative cash flow cells, all have red background.

I calculate all the "sub- total" columns into one "total sum" cell. Based on this "total sum" I want the cell background to be red if the total sum is negative, or green if total sum is positive. How do I make the cell change to the proper background color based on whether it's a negative or postive total sum?

Number To Change Color For Positive & Negative

Dec 6, 2007

I am wanting to finish a worksheet for my boss. What I have done so far is taken the " forecast" of vehicles shown and used a formula of subtract from "actual" vehicles sold to get "how many we have left to go". what he wants to do is have the "to go" number change from red when a negative to green when it reaches a positive. example:

forecast = 30
actual = 27
to go = -3

that "to go" needs to be without a negative sign but in RED to negate a negative. Is that possible with a formula??

Change Cell Background Color Based On Multiple Conditions

Aug 6, 2008

My Excel skills are basic at best, with no knowledge of VBA other than finding the VB Editor. What I'm trying to do: Attached is the file I'm working with, to give you a better idea. When a name is selected in column B, the cells in the non corresponding columns E to N should have a black background color. For example, when you select Mike in column B, the cells in that row in columns I to N, named Dave and Dean, should become black. If you select the name Dave, columns E to H (Mike) and M to N (Dean) should become black. In addition, the background color of the non-black cells should change depending on the status.

OK : green
FAIL: red
N/A: orange
Exceptions: blue

The attached file shows a few possible results, manually entered.

VBA Code To Change Positive Value To Negative Upon Entry Into Cell

Jan 16, 2008

I have a worksheet in which the values in cells B8, H37, H42, H48 and H49 must be negative. Occasionally the values get entered as positive numbers.

I would like to use VBA code to automatically change the value from positive to negative.

It appears that the WorkSheet_Change event could be used to do this but I don't know what code to enter into the Sub.

How To Change Positive Into Negative Number Inside Cell Formula

Feb 7, 2014

How do I change a Positive number into a Negative number inside a cell formula?

I have a figure in Cell AE 101 which has the positive number 141

I have another cell W1 which has the positive number of 437

I want to create a formula in cell X1 that takes the number in cell AE 101 of 141 and convert the number inside the formula of 141 into a negative number of -141 and then subtracts that number from Cell W1 of 437 leaving an equation inside the formula to read. 437-141 = 296

Since the number in Cell W1 changes all the time and the number in AE101 Changes all the time the new formulated number in X1 will change all the time too as the cells get updated.

Making Cells Change Color Based On Qualifications Expiration Date

Dec 25, 2012

I have created a qualification tracking spreadsheet to track when qualifications are coming due. Each cell may have a different date based on when that employee initially got that qualification. I want the cell that the initial qualification date is typed in to turn "red" after 180days, "orange" after 120 days and "yellow" after 90 days. I have a formula that does close to what I need, but it changes the cell next to it in color.

That code is as follows: =AND(A1<>"",Today()>=A1+90,B1="")

I have attached the sheet, what I am trying to do. Basically columns B-E and rows 2-35 are the ones that need the formatting.

Change Background Color Of Cell When Data Has Been Changed?

Jul 10, 2012

I have 10 excel sheets that are filled with data some 20,000 each.

Some of the descriptions in that row need to be changed.

I wonder how I can create some kind of macro or formatting that will change the text color or the fill color as I make those changes automatically?

I can sort the list after that easy enough, pulling the color text or the fill color.

Formula To Change A Negative No To A Positive

Dec 26, 2006

This may be more of a math question rather than an Excel one.

If I have a spreadsheet with a cell that produces different negative number each time it is used, is there a way i can add a formula to make it a positive number.

So if Cell A1 showed -244.22, I want to add an equation that changes if to 244.22

Cell A1 changes so it would need to do the same for any negative number within that cell.

Macro: Change Positive Values To Negative

Feb 6, 2007

I use data on a text file and import this into Excel and use a macro to format. The data lists invoices and credit notes and their dollar value.

Due to a fault in the program that creates the text file all dollar amounts are shown as positive figures. Credit note amounts should correctly be shown as negative figures.

The invoice number format is 8 characters beginning with a letter and credit notes begin with a number.

Is there macro code that will change credit note values to a negative figure?

Background Color Of Cell Based On Colors In Column

Sep 28, 2013

I have a data base in which I classify cells in three colors (green, yellow, and red) on my own. I would like the first cell in each column to indicate if there is a red or yellow cell in it's column. Because red cells are more important then yellow cells, if there is a yellow and a red cell in the column, I would like the red to over ride the yellow and the first cell would indicate red.

So basically, if there is a red cell in the column, no matter what other colors there are, the first cell should show red. If there is only yellow or yellow and green cells, the first cell should show yellow. If there are only green cells or green cells and clear, the first cell should show clear.

Changing Cell Background Color In Another Sheet Based On Cell Value

Jun 13, 2013

I am working on a workbook with 200+ sheets and an index linking to each of the sheets. On the sheets there is a cell containing the results of calculations and I need the cell referencing the sheet in the index to change background colors depending if the calculations value is greater or less than 0. I currently have working code that also changes the tab color of each sheet depending on the value, but i am trying to add the index cell background change functionality into that. also, the index listings is subject to change. my working code is

VB:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("d34").Value < 0 Then
Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 3
ElseIf Range("D34").Value > 0 Then
Me.Tab.ColorIndex = 4
Else

[Code]...

and the code i am trying to get working is

VB:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rngX As Range
Set myRange = Worksheets("Index").Range("A1:A500").Find(Range("C2").Text, lookat:=xlPart)
' the C2 is the reference the title that would be on the index
If Range("d40").Value < 0 Then

[Code]....

I keep getting the runtime error '1004: application-defined error or object-defined error the thing is, i ran the cell background changing code in a normal macro before integrating it in my other worksheet code first and it worked fine. I have a little code experience, though not much in vba and I am unsure what the issue is. if there is another better way to accomplish what I'm tring to do, that would also be fine.

Excel 2010 :: Return Positive Or Negative Value Farthest From Zero Based On Criteria From Another Range

Mar 11, 2014

I am creating a template in Excel 2010 and am having some issues due to a combination of positive and negative values. Specifically, I have a named range of values that can have either a positive or negative deviation from zero. I need to return the value that has the greatest deviation from zero (either + or -) based on criteria in another named range I have used the following array formula with success for the "Y" range:
{=IF(PRB=M1,INDEX(Y,MATCH(MAX(ABS(Y)),ABS(Y),0)),MAX(Y))}

However, if there are not any negative values, as in the "Z" range, it only returns MAX(Z) for the entire range, when I would like ti to return "0.00134" (the largest deviation from zero based on the PRB range criterai. Would this be better accomplished using VBA?

PRB
Y
Z
A90B90
A90B-90

Next, I would need a macro that resets everything back to red. I hope this macro could be assigned to a form button.
