I am in need of a way to change the color of text in a cell to red if that cell contains a dollar sign ($) and if it dosen't contain a dollar sign ($) for the text to be black. I want this to happen automatically without having to run a macro, is this possible?
I am having a hard time figuring how to change the color of all the different text groups in a chart, header, axis, labels etc, and even the macro recorder has failed me this time - I have recorded the following, where I selected the graph, changed textcolor to white and then ended the recording - but without changing anything in the code, it returns an error on the second line (starting with "with"):
Run-time error '-2147024809 (80070057)': The value is outside of the boundaries (translated from danish)
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart1").Activate With ActiveSheet.Shapes("Chart1").TextFrame2.TextRange.Font.Fill .Visible = msoTrue .ForeColor.ObjectThemeColor = msoThemeColorBackground1 .ForeColor.TintAndShade = 0 .ForeColor.Brightness = 0 .Transparency = 0 .Solid End With
From what I have read, it might be something with the textframe2 property.
I was just wondering how I can type in a different colour. I.e. I have a document and I want to type in random cells but I always want to be typing in red, or blue etc. Hoe can I change the default text color?
I have a button (shape) whose text value is linked to cell A1. (In other words, if text in cell A1 changes, the text on the button changes). A concatenation formula exists in cell A1 to "join" together a combination of text and cell values. The formula in A1 looks something like this:
="You have "&B10&" records that contain errors."
I'd like to set the font for the "&B10" portion to be a different color than the rest of the text string so that it stands out from the rest of the text. Obviously this can be done when the text is manually entered into a text box, but when using a formula to populate the text in the text box, it's all or nothing. I'm hoping to find a way to embed a separate font color within the formula string in A1 for just the portion I want to change? For example, all text would be regular/black, but the numeric value generated from cell B10 would be yellow.
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.
Before the cell is clicked, it would be the color red, with no text. (I'm not sure if you need to know that).
Next, I would need a macro that resets everything back to red. I hope this macro could be assigned to a form button.
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'm a business/application consultant for ERP software, and generally pretty solid when it comes to excel. However, I've come across a question for a personal sheet that I can't seem to solve.
In my personal budget worksheet, I'd like to set a budget on a cell-by-cell basis. When the budget is hit, I'd like the text color (or cell color) to change.
I.E. Cell D14 has a budget of $200. When I enter $200 in the cell, the text turns from black to red. I've searched through google with no luck. I have mildly searched this forum, but haven't found my direct answer - I have come pretty close though, in other languages
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. I've noticed that if the Green color value is higher, excel is more likely to use the black text. If Blue is high, white. Green takes precedence over Blue and Red is just kind of in its own world.how excel calculates this?
I'm using an Excel spreadsheet as a database (mostly text based), so that in columns 1 and 2 are names and in column 3 is notes. I'm keeping all the columns single height (ie: not wrapping text). Where there is nothing in column 4 onwards, the text from column 3 displays across the subsequent blank fields.
I would like to create a very simple Excel file that makes the following:
If I enter 2 in a field I want that 2 replaced with "07.15-19.00" and also a 1 entered to the field next to it. If I enter a 4 I want the 4 replaced with 00:00-08:00 and the number 8 entered in the field next to it.
One of the action's on a large group of the controls is the same but except for one number
here is an example
If TextBox107.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell. Offset(0, 53).Font.ColorIndex = 3 If TextBox108.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 54).Font.ColorIndex = 3 If TextBox109.ForeColor = 255 Then ActiveCell.Offset(0, 55).Font.ColorIndex = 3
This makes a cell that correlates to the textbox red if the text in the textbox is red.
Now, I loads of these textboxes that all need to run the same code with just the Offset value one digit higher than the last and I was hoping I could create a loop to avoid a huge block of code but I can't work out how to make a constant that will +1 with each loop.
Also, can I assume that a loop will start with the control with the lowest number i.e. Textbox1 and then work its way through the rest of them in order?
I use Vlookup all the time but this is one has be stumped. On the attached spreadsheet I trying to lookup the description on sheet 2 (lookup data) and return it to description on sheet 1 (orig data). I have the both fields formatted as text so I'm not sure why it's not returning the value?
I have a file from PubMed with a bunch of citations in it, which often go above 10,000. There are fields that mean certain things and I would like to be able to import the text file into Excel and parse certain fields into columns.
The text file looks like this:
PMID- 19782657 OWN - NLM STAT- In-Process DA - 20091109 IS - 1872-6240 (Electronic) VI - 1303 .......
I have a spreadsheet that has long text sentences in each cell. I have a 2nd spreadsheet which is a slightly updated version of the first spreadsheet. The slight updates consisted of editing the odd word here or there out of the first spreadsheet.
Unfortunately, I didn't keep track of the changes I made, and I need to know what they are.
It's easy to tell if a change has been made, simply by comparing the cells. But I can't find an easy way to find out exactly what change was made. Comparing the cells a line at a time is very time consuming.
I have two text files with huge data in each which I need to compare for difference between each for e.g.
file 1 would have following records
12345 KKKK 3510 ABCD
file 2 would have 12345 KKKK 3210 ABCD
file 2 would have similar records but 3510 would have difference. What i need is " if 12345 and ABCD is matching then what is the difference value of 3510 and 3210 ? the result should be 300 . This i need as an output in another text file.
