Set Up Conditional Format Using Two Way Lookup?

Jul 12, 2012

I'm trying to set up a conditional format using a two way lookup. The chart is 15 colums across and perhaps 500 down. Index / Match functions do find the correct value - BUT - the challenge is there ARE duplicate values in either the column or row that are "all" getting highlighted with the conditional format (color a cell).

Save Conditional Format Colour But Delete Condition Format

Dec 19, 2006

I have a Sheet ( Named "Summary" for Example ) of about 4,000 Rows that has a LOT of Conditional Formatting.

I Added Another 100 Rows this Morning and when I Tried Saving it a Message Saying that Not All the Formatting for the New Data that had Been Added had Been Saved. Is there a Macro or Something I can Run that will Make the Conditionally Formatted Cells Stay the Colour that they are but Delete the Conditional Formatting Part of it Achieved Using "Format" & "Conditional Format" from the Menu Please.

Ideally I would like to be Able to Enter the Number of Rows ( From Row ? to Row ? ) that I want this to Apply to.

Conditional Format Based On A Conditional Format

Feb 9, 2010

I have five fields that have a conditional format applied to them: (see attached).
Columns J, K, L, N and O. These conditionals highlight if a minimum number is entered. Ex. Minimum pushups for a 30 y/o male is 27, if a 26 is entered it highlights red. The total score (where I need this to perform) is calculated in column Q. It will format red if the total score is below 75 but what I can't figure out is how to make it format if any of the previous minimums have not been met.

Ex. In cell L4, his crunches were 25 (a automatic failure -- red formatting). Now the total score is above 75 so it calculates as passing (green), but I need it to highlight red regardless because of the minimum not met in cell L4.

Lookup To Return Value And Format

Aug 3, 2007

My workbook contains two worksheets a scorecard template and a data sheet. I use the lookup function to retrieve statistics from the data to populate various fields in the scorecard template. The value can be numeric, currency or percentages depending on the lookup criteria. Although the data shows the correct formats in the data sheet, when the lookup retrieves the value it only shows the value as number format. Is there a way the cell can retrieve the cell format information as well as the value and apply it to the cell

Lookup Based On Format

Jan 18, 2008

I am trying to read down a column of unknown rows stopping when it reaches a colored cell, calculate the results and return it to the colored cell "before" the read cells.

Is this possible?

For example:
A3 is a colored cell that I need to return results of say A4:A6
A4:A6 have the data
A5 is a colored cell that has results from say A6:A12
A6:A12 have the data
etc...

Now the data to calculate is from a Data Validation list that ignores Blanks
accepted values: Blank, Yes, No and Maybe
If ANY No, colored cell = No
If ANY Maybe, colored cell = Maybe
If ANY Blanks, leave colored cell blank
If ALL Yes, colored cell = Yes

"No" wins over any value
"Maybe" wins over Yes and blank
"Blank" wins over Yes

It may be possible to simplify by breaking the "results" cell into another column but the above mentioned is their preferred way to handle and "automate" it. Also might be easier to put the results cell at the end of the read cells?

Conditional Lookup And Selection

Feb 2, 2009

I am using excell for our estimating sheets. I am trying to automate some of the processes to ensure there are less mistakes.

I would like to automate the process so that if a number is put into the quantity column then certain cells from that row are copied to a different sheet.

I just dont know how to do it? Do I use Macros or Formulas?

Matrix Lookup To Format Cells

Apr 27, 2009

I have one sheet that is used to check off when certain questions are answered for an inspection of departments in a building. As the first image shows, Row 1 contains the questions; Column A contains the departments. I simplified this for the image, but the rows represent individual audits, over time, so a department will appear again and again on subsequent rows, as new audits are conducted. When it's time to do a new audit, the user starts a new row and selects the department in Column A from a drop down list (via data validation).

What I need to happen is when the user selects a department, certain cells under each question are filled with black, indicating that the question does not apply to that department.

Lookup Tables With Time Format

Jun 12, 2006

I am trying to use lookup to search a table of data to return a value. The only problem is the data that I want to search is in [h]:mm:ss.0 format. And to make maters worse the search variable might not match exactly. I just can't get it to work. Basically I have a form that the user puts in their time to run a certain distance and I want it to return the corresponding VDOT value.

for example, if I can run 800m in 4mins 12 seconds, I would enter 04:12 into the form, and the function would look up 0:04:12 in column B and return the value of 66 from cell K38. I thought that it could be done by using lookup and the setting the relevant column by Offset but it doesn't and I'm at a loss. I've attched the data sheet so you can have a look.

IF(AND Function Using LOOKUP For Conditional Values

Dec 3, 2013

I'm new to excel and am attempting to use an IF(AND function that requires the use of two LOOKUP tables for the IF conditions, I have been unable so far to generate the answer I'm looking for.

I have a set of data in two columns, column A which has a series of dates from 1/09/2013 - 30/09/2013 (multiple for each date), and column F which has a series of 4 digit numbers (employee numbers). I also have two columns where I can enter in values for LOOKUP tables, one column for dates (O2:O4) and another for employee numbers (Q2:Q17).

What I am trying to achieve is a True/False answer in a final column for IF A2 = value from column (table) O2:O4, AND F2 = value from column (table) Q2:Q17. For the querry to be true the values in column A and column F must meet both conditions, be from a date in column O2:O4 and also be an employee from column Q2:Q17

=IF(AND(A2=LOOKUP(A2,O2:O4),F2=LOOKUP(F2,Q2:Q17),"Yes","No")

Currently I get a #NA error and I know its due to my formula not being anywhere near correct, as far as I can tell it's a result of the LOOKUP part of the formula I'm attempting to create, as it generates a #NA area when the data does not meet the criteria in the columns (tables), I have attempted to include a ISNA section to the formula to alter the result if the data does not meet the two conditions but when applied to the whole data set it only responds with a False answer even if the data meets both conditions.

Lookup Until Conditional Match Then Return Last Value In Row

Mar 17, 2009

I am trying to modify this formula to do one more thing, but I can't quite figure out how to do it. I have part 1 and 2, but part 3 is giving me a very hard time. The formula is not working correctly. It is supposed to do several things.

Do an HLookup for a row and return the last value in the row.If there is no value (blank), the value should be "Incomplete."If HLookup finds a value of "Fail," it should look to see if there is a value of "Pass" BEFORE (to the left of) "Fail." If this exists, then it should return a value of "OK."

Here is what I have so far....

Conditional Lookup, IF & Match Function

Apr 22, 2008

Data for once source
Column A shipping container numbers (alpha & numerical)
Column B the container size code
Column C relevant date of arrival

Data from another source
Column D shipping container numbers (alpha & numerical)
Column E the container size code
Column F relevant date of shipment

What I want is:
If Column A containers match with Column B containers Then in Column G the containers that matched and Column H the container size code
Column I the date of arrival
Column J the date of shipment

Vlookup seem to be an answer, but can’t get it to work. I am not good in VB, so may be formulas would be better Named range and IF & Match FORMULA may be?!! The list will be approximately 20,000 numbers long. Have attached the sample file.

Conditional Format Or Another Way?

Apr 22, 2014

how to view changes on my spreadsheet.

I have a tab called SAP DUMP where we copy our raw data to, from here we manually copy and paste into another sheet called ORDER TRACKING SHEET. When we do a fresh dump (overwrite) of raw data into the SAP DUMP tap we need to see if the there is a new entry which needs to be copied across to the ORDER TRACKING SHEET. I've got a vlookup to show this. The one I can't work out is that on the ORDER TRACKING SHEET I also need to see if there are any entries are now no longer on the SAP DUMP tab. This is where I thought a condition format might work, color the line red if it's no longer on the SAP DUMP tap. Can't make it work.....

Conditional Format According To Day

Dec 16, 2008

I have a workbook with 12 worksheets corresponding to months. Each is formatted in A1 with the month (Date, Jan-01) and all rows below, starting at A5, are the days of the month (Custom, ddd d). All cells are linked so they change accordingly with A1.

I'm trying to apply conditional formatting so that all Fridays will have light grey shading across the row. I can get it to shade every 7th row using the MOD & ROW functions, but the shaded row changes with subsequent months and years (not necessarily Fridays). Can I get it to recognize every Friday through the year.

Conditional Format In VBA

Hi1Tasks23-Apr-09Inercona.Trial1
b.Trial2

Tasks23-Apr-09Enercona.Trial1b.Trial2

Disregard the First Table. I cant remove it. refer to the Second Table

This table is a Task Tracker. The Start Button Adds the Current Date in Enercon's Row C1 and the row below (C2) will automaticaly filled with color using Conditional Formating. My Question is how can I code a conditional format for Trail1 Rows. For example when Trail1 Cell is active then you click the start Button instead of Coloring D2 Cell it should Color D3 Cell.

Here is the Code in Start Button

Sub cmdStart_Click()
Dim i As Integer
Results = MsgBox("Are you working on " & ActiveCell.Value & " today ?", vbOKCancel, "")
If Results = vbOK Then

With Sheets("Sheet1")
i = .Cells(2, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column + 1
.Cells(2, i).Value = Now()
i = i + 1

End With
Else
Range("A1").Select
End If
End Sub

Conditional Formatting On MATCH / LOOKUP Function?

Mar 6, 2012

I have an "actual build" worksheet, which allows the user to select which materials were used, material properties (e.g. material grade etc.), including its corresponding length. The user can enter all these in manually, or select the material name from a pre-defined list (Reference worksheet contains this information), and then the associated properties are automatic lookups from the Reference worksheet.

So all this is fine / completed, and the LOOKUP returns its theoretical length from the reference table. However, its actual material lengths will almost never match the theoretical length, so what I want to happen is for a conditional format to highlight the cell, to notify the user that they need to enter a manual value. The auto-looked up length is still useful a proposed build on the worksheet, but having it highlighted to ensure it is manually entered later is the objective.

The other thing is it can't just check if it's a formula, it has to check if it is a formula with a MATCH/LOOKUP function. E.g. it needs to be unhighlighted if someone has a basic formula, ie = 2*0.42 if there two of the item etc..

Hence, I was thinking of having a conditional formula that "format only cells that contain" and then format only cells with "specific text" and "containing" and "MATCH(" text function, however this doesn't seem to work.

Length cell formula:

=OFFSET('Reference- Materials'!$N$5, MATCH($BO32, Materials_Item_Number, 0), 0) * $AH32

Conditional Lookup (two Criteria) And Return Value Of Different Column

Apr 13, 2012

I recently learned how to count cells in a range based on the value from another column (excel 2007) How to count cells in a range based on the value from another column but now how I can go about returning a value from another column that matches the conditional counting. For example in the table below I'm first wanting to find the rows matching "chr15" from column A that also have a value from column B that is greater than 25,000 and less than 3,000,000. But what it I wanted to instead report the corresponding values in column C? I've played with VLOOKUP to no avail but I'm not sure if that's the right line of thinking. The answer would be the values in bold.

A B C
1 chr2 12008 AA
2 chr2 149700 BB
3 chr15 51 CC
4 chr15 5624 DD

Conditional Formatting Lookup To Highlight 1st Match Only

Mar 4, 2008

The Problem: There is data in a step chart from left to right. On a separate step chart, Conditional formatting is set to lookup values from the first step chart and highlight non empty cells in the row. The formatting should only format the first non empty cell from left to right in the row. After formatting the first non zero value in the time line the formatting should cease. Note: the conditional formatting value and the value of the cell being formatted are not the same in either value or time but are related. The formatting is to illustrate the relation

Current Formatting formula:

=VLOOKUP($B395,$B$5:$DB$211,K$242,0)

Search And Conditional Format?

May 14, 2014

I would like to conditionally format a column of cells such that it formats when a cell's text equals to that in another column.

Example, in column A I have

1 Cat
2 Dog
3 Mouse
...

In B I have
1 Chicken
2 Mouse
3 Monkey
...
58 Cat

Based on the B column I would like to highlight A3 Mouse and A1 Cat.

Additional complexity, In B I have
1 Chicken Mouse Dog
2 Rat Monkey Fish
3 ...

Given that this is the format I have the text in how would I search column A and conditionally format A2 and A3.

I selected the columns and formated them to all be blue... thats the color I want for even, but now I can't figure out how to set a condition that checks for odd numbers and changes them to red. I now have a count of even/odd for all records, and even/odd for the last 30, this provided some very interesting results.
