## Correlation Between Colour Brightness And The Auto Change From Black Text To White Text?

Aug 16, 2013

So I have been playing around with the tab colors on my workbook and am trying to figure out the correlation between color brightness and the auto change from black text to white text.

Green takes precedence over Blue and Red is just kind of in its own world.how excel calculates this?

Mar 15, 2013

creating a macro. I would like the background color of certain cells under column A (cells 12:25, 27:32, 34:38, 40:45, 47:51, 53:61, 63:70, 72:79, 81:88, 90:92) to change to the color green and display the text "Complete" on mouseclick.

## Time To Stay As Text

May 30, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that tracks employee stats. Most of these stats are amounts of TIME. These times are being pasted from another source and the problem I'm having is that as soon as excel sees "1:02:03" it puts it in TIME format. The problem I have with that is later on I need it in text format because a lot of the other times are in text already. (the program the info is coming from will use ":59:59" and not have a 0, so I have compensated for that later) So how can I paste 1:01:01 and not have it saved as TIME? I cant CONVERT it to text, I need it to be text from the start.

## Red(-ve)/Green(+ve) Text For Under/over Monthly Budget

Aug 6, 2009

I've devised a monthly savings sheet to allow me to track my savings towards a deposit on a house. My target is £xxx a month, but as I could contribute loose amounts of money I'd like to be able to display a field next to each month of how much over I've contributed or how much under I've contributed.

I'd like this to be represented as:- If I contribute more than £xxx for a month then display it as green text and calculate how much over has been contributed.

If I contribute less than £xxx for a month then display it as red text and calculator how much under the contribution has been. I'm really not sure how to do this, I would do it manually normally but surely there is a way of automatically representing it.

Jul 30, 2014

I have a given som (general) range where I would like a function to change the background color of every second row in a visual basic function.

Jan 6, 2010

I have a spreadsheet where column H can be either yes or no. When column H changes to Yes I want the background of the whole row to change to Red.
