I know this can be done, as I have seen it before, but can't seem to figure out how to replicate it.
I have a speadsheet in which I have a drop-down box for a certain column's values. How do I automatically have each independent row's background color change dependant upon the value selected in that row's drop-down cell box (and update color automatically if a different drop-down selection is made later)?
Row 1: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "Yes"...change row color to GREEN
Row 2: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "No"...change row color to RED
Row 3: Cell C Drop-Down Value = "Maybe"...change row color to YELLOW
I am making some grids which will have a series of numbers in the individual cells. But I can't figure out how to change the colors of the digits. If I change one digit to Red; all the numbers in that cell change to Red. Whereas I would like to have them as Red,Green,Black,Blue,etc.
This is probably very simple but I'm having a problem finding how to change the color of a bar based on the value. For example, when the bar reaches 100% I want the bar to turn green while the other bars in the graph stay the same.
I'm trying to get a range of cells to change colors. This should happen from VBA code and happen on specified sheet that is not the default sheet when the userform appears that has the button that triggers the event. I have to reference the range with variables because it changes depending on other events.
Iím sure conditional formatting is the way forward with this but canít quite get the formula right. I need 2 columns: Column A will have dates that an event happened on. Column B will be blank until we have received back in a letter that went out on the date in column A. At which point the date the letter was received back in will be entered into column B
What I need is for the Colour of Column B to change from green (before and on the date of Column A) to Amber (for the next 3 days) and then red (from Day 5 onwards. This would be until a date was entered in column B (the date the letter is received back in) at which point it would just go back to white. This would keep a check on how long the letter was out for and whether we need to chase it up or not and with an increasing urgency.
I attached 2 examples. The first one is before the screen flickering fix I got from Andy Pope. The second is when I added the fix. When you open Example List 1 and you enter 0 at E180, the screen will flicker, but it will change (red) Watching to (green) Planning to Watch in G180.
When you open Example List 2 and you enter 0 at E180, the screen doesn't flicker anymore. The status Watching in G180 still changes to Planning to Watch, but it stays red while it has to become green. How can I have the color changes and no screen flickering? Marco:
I am trying to format certain cells to change colors depending on the date and the content of the next field to show due dates.
cell label due date date completed
c5 au5 be5
c6 au6 be6
c7 au7 be7
c8 au8 be8
What I need is for the contents of au5 to be green up until 10 days before the due date, yellow up until 5 days, and red with less than 5 days until the due date. If the date completed is entered into be5, then the contents of au5 should be black.
Is this possible, and if it is, how do I set this up? I tried to use
And choose green formatting (something I found on yahoo answers), but when I enter the date the text is still the original black font.
I am wanting the colors of the bars in a stacked chart to change based on the date in the X Axis. As the current date arrives, the stacked bar needs to change to various blue shades. If the date is in the future, the stacked bar needs to be various grey shades.
I am working on a project where I am virtually almost finished except for a minor change with the pie chart. I am analyzing some data and recorded a macro to do this and also the pie chart for visualization. However, I do not like the color of the default pie chart colors and would like to customize it. How could I change this within the macro I have recorded?
My pallet lost color-coding - if I hover over each little scare it displays the names for the colors and if I click on them they color the cells with the right colors, but the palette itself lost the visual display of colors except for 8 colors: black, blue, red, magenta, yellow, cyan, and white.
I use color-coding of cells a lot and I find it difficult to work without visual clues. At least the hover-support allows me to get the work done, but with difficulty.
I have rows that contain property identifiers and their owners. One property ID can have multiple owners. I would like to color the rows differently to show each unique property ID with their 1 or more property owners. I have attached a file showing what I would like (with fake data). In excel, I was able to figure out how to highlight the duplicate values, but it only does them in one color. I would like each property ID value to have it's own color - as I show in the attached file. In the file, I have value 1234 as one color, the 4546 values as another color and 2233 values as another.
Is there a way to make the colours in a chart (pie, column etc) correspond to a value? I'm using Excel 2002, soon to start using 2003.
For example, imagine a normal pie chart showing the population of each country in North, Central and South America. But for each country, colour gradations would be used to show levels of wealth (e.g., GDP per capita) as follows:
saturated red = bottom 20% (poorest) pink = 21-40th percentile, white = 41-60%, gray = 61-80%, black = 81-100% (richest)
Is this possible? And not to get too greedy, but can you use even finer gradations -- say, with ten categories, as opposed to the five in the example above?
I am a new member, with not a lot of VBA experience. Sorry for the vague title .. couldn't come up with something ^^". The idea is, I made an list with several anime titles I am watching (in column A) In column G it shows the status; "Watching", "Completed", "Planning to Watch", "On-Hold" or "Dropped". I managed to let the colors of those words change with this
I need to write a condition in such a way that cell IF A1= "DBR","BPR","SLR","SKR" then change cell B1 to SPECIFIC COLOUR Each condition different colour. A1 values ("DBR","BPR","SLR","SKR") is a list of selectable values. if the condition is falls then B1 should be normal (white color cell) with 0 in it.
I am in the process of reformatting an excel workbook to act as a review tool for different factors in a process. Part of my redesign includes the use of coding that creates different cell colors based upon the cell contents. The new workbooks will be used to handle existing data for this year. I have developed a process macro to open an existing workbook and copy and transfer the original data worksheet into the newly formatted workbook. The data gets transferred to the new worksheet and the resulting workbook is renamed and saved, Heres'' the rub... the newly saved workbook is missing all of the coding for the worksheets... apparently this is a MS bug.
Has anyone figured a workaround for this. One thought I had is to open both( new and old )workbooks and rather than move/copy , i would transfer the data using cell references.
I created a multipage spreadsheet to track stocks. Two pages import quotes from Microsoft automatically about every 10 minutes. The main page organizes these stock quotes next to the symbols. Stock price, $ change, then % price change.
For example, for symbol INTC, PRICE cell is =Quotes!D120. $ change is =Quotes!J120 % change is =Quotes!I120
Now all of a sudden, during a random refresh, EXCEL IS CHANGING THE VALUES from D120 to AB120. J120 to AG120. I120 to AH120. That was after fixing it earlier today. Earlier today it randomly changed those values to something else. Like A, T, and V substitutes for the proper fields. This is happening to about 10 stocks in a row, but I think I saw it on a couple others earlier. It is as if someone is changing these fields (but they aren't!) The fields on the pages being pulled from are staying the same.
