how to highlight a particular cell red if the value in one cell is less than or equal to the value in another cell. For instance, How do I make it so that the "Hours to go" cell turns red if the value in the "Actual Last Completion" value is less than or equal to the value of "Last Completed" cell?
I have a query relating to conditional highlighting - specifically highlighting a cell's column and row based upon whether it contains data or not i.e. if it is blank, it's column and row remain unhighlighted, but when it contains data, it's column and row should become highlighted. I could probably manage this myself but I have a few more specific requirements which I have illustrated with a few screenshots, however I can't see how to make these available to view here!I
I want to have Excel highlight one or two numbers/cells in one column based on the value in another cell. I am attempting to do this using Conditional Formatting.
For example, if X1 is BETWEEN A2 and A3, I want to highlight A2 AND A3. I have used various AND and IF functions to achieve this goal.
Also, if X1 is EQUAL to A2, I want A2 to be highlighted. This is easy to do with a simple formula.
But my problem is this: if X1 is equal to A2, I want ONLY A2 highlighted. If X1 is between A2 and A3, I want BOTH A2 and A3 highlighted. I cannot figure out how to achieve both. For example, when X1 = A3, A2 AND A3 are being highlighted, instead of just A3. I would prefer to do this without a macro, if possible. Can this be done?
Example formulas I have tried which easily achieve the highlighting of two cells when the value is between them:
It appears that the +IF, etc. functions are not doing anything.
This is more complicated by the fact that the value of, in the above example, I35 is based on a value from another sheet (I used a function to transfer a value from one sheet to I35 in the other sheet). As data are entered on Sheet1, the value in I35 in Sheet2 changes.
I have 2 worksheets. One has locations with numbers, example:
275 Location 1 276 Location 2
I have all my locations on the second sheet, but in 2 different columns, listed with numbers only, example: 271 275 272 300
I have 2 scenarios I need help with.
1st: If any of the numbers on sheet 1 match the numbers in column 1 on sheet 2, highlight the number on sheet 1 in green If any of the numbers on sheet 1 match the numbers in column 2 on sheet 2, highlight the number on sheet 1 in red
2nd: If the number on sheet 2 matches any number on sheet 1, highlight green
I want these to apply to all the cells that have numbers (it could apply to all cells I guess as it should ignore it if it doesn't match, I would assume)
I'm using Excel 2010 on my Mac. I would like to set up the data as follows:
A B C D E F
NAME DATA X DATA Y DATA Z DATA XX DATA YY
NAME 90% 88.2 410 88.4% 97.8
Now what I would like to do is have the data in each column highlighted a certain color based on specific ranges. For example in Column B I want anything from 92% - 100% highlighted blue. I would like 83% - 91.9% highlighted purple, and anything under 83% highlighted red. Do I need to have a conditional format entered in each cell? Can I set up a conditional format for the whole column? Once I can figure the formatting in my example the remaining columns will be a breeze since they will be set up in the same manner just different number ranges, same colors will apply.
I found code online that I can put on my sheet to get my formatting properties to stay the same for the items in my dropdown list located on another page. However the code does not work for conditional formatted cells...which is what I need. This is the code that I have that will carry over regular formatted cells. Just not Conditional formatted cells.
I have a column of information. The first cell has the record number. Then there are criteria the record must meet. If any of the cells have N for nonCompliant, i would like for the record number to change colors. If it were only one citeria, i think i know how to do that, but because there are as many as 10 I'm not sure how to make it change colors for all ten unless i do it one cell at a time.
Also there are several thousand columns on different worksheets, how do i apply the conditions to each column without doing it manually?
I would like to identify duplicates in a list using conditional formatting in Excel 2007.
I have tried choosing to identify duplicates using the formula that I have found on many threads throughout the message board:
This function works up to 15 characters in a cell, but Excel seems to be treating all digits after the first 15 as the same, resulting in a "fuzzy match" where I want an exact match. Many of the values in my list are 18 characters long, in text format to prevent rounding.
I've noticed that Excel treats the 18-characters values the same way when sorting; for example, it treats these two values as the same:
Is there a way to force Excel to examine those last four digits for the purpose of sorting & identifying duplicates?
I have 3 rows with numbers across several columns, each cell holding one number only. For example:
R1: 1101 - 1102 - 1103 - 1104 - etc. R2: 2101 - 2102 - 2103 - 2104 - etc. R3: 3101 - 3102 - 3103 - 3104 - etc.
A little further down I am having a list where the end user will write down the exact same number. Once the same number has been written into the list, I would like the number shown in the top rows (row 1 to 3) to be highlighted in green, basically telling the user that the number has been entered into the list below and is ok now.
In one column I have a drop down list of a dozen different initials with conditional formatting on those cells. I would also like to conditionally format an adjacent text string column based on those initials, but don't want to set up a dozen rules on each cell, one by one. If I set up the top cell with the correct rules I cannot fill the formatting in because the formula is not updated on a row by row basis, but en bloc for the range.
I have a worksheet with a lot of different conditions applied to a lot of cells. I'd like to do some housekeeping, but to do that, I would like a clear and complete list of all cells that have conditional formats attached to them, and what the formula/criteria is for applying said format. I don't even care what the formatting is, but that would be nice too.
So, when I go to my "Conditional Formatting" screen, I get something like:
Now, this doesn't show me much of anything about what the formula actually is. I need to select it and look around. I'd rather just get a full listing of what the rule says...
And where I might have the same rule applied to different ranges of cells And so on.
As far as I can tell Conditional Formatting will not work for this problem.
What I need now is some code to colour the rows in the data sheet ("Standards_Data"), so some other code (which is working fine) can then colour data points on a multiple graphs (which will be on the "Graphs" sheet). I've played around with as much code as I can find but nothing has the flexibility that I need or doesn't seem to work at all.
The idea is that users can adjust the colours using the Column A on the "Graphs" sheet to best highlight certain things. Also this list could then be edited as old Standard ID's become redundant and new ones come on line.
So in a nutshell: Colour rows in "Standard_Data" based on value of Standard ID (Column 4) according to the corresponding colour found in the list in the "Graphs" sheet.
I've attached a trimmed down version of the workbook.
I have a program that compiles a whole bunch of annual data.
The data is in columns A:J
I would like to have a program that loops through column A's entries and if the entries are odd then have the cells in Columns A through J of that row be highlighted with colour index RGB (193, 205, 205).
My current solution is to filter the Master Log so I only see Region 2, copy everything, then paste over Region 2, and repeat with 3, 4 and 5.
I have a master log (attached) that I import using Microsoft Query to 4 other spreadsheets (called Regional Logs), depending on the contents of the column "Region." I have all this figured out, but I can't figure out how to have the highlighting persist through the export and refresh. I don't think the attached file has any highlighting, but how I use this is I edit the Master Log throughout the week and highlight changes as I go. Coworkers use the 4 Regional Logs throughout the week to monitor different cases, particularly the new ones, so they need to see all changes for the week highlighted in yellow, which means the Regional Logs need to be linked to the Master Log and the highlighting must be visible any time a coworker opens the Regional Log. In addition, they are emailed across the state to county directors and they need to see the yellow-highlighted data, as well.
Currently, when exporting data using MS Query, no formatting persists. How can I ensure the highlighting persists? Or, is there another way to easily export the data, depending on the contents of the column "Region", which would allow the highlighting to persist
and i want to add a name to that drop down list is there anyway i can do this by just putting it in the input cell
eg if my dropdown list is in a1 and i need to select the name mark mark isnt in the drop down list i can manually type this as i have unchecked input message and error message but is there anyway i can get a code to add that to the dropdown validation list the next time i open up i ask because i dont want people entering names on the sheet and having the name range changed
I am trying to reference data that is currently horizonal in excel and would like to reference that data to get output horizontally with some additions. I have pasted a screenshot of my test spreadsheet. how to do it step by step as I am completely a newbie in excel. As displayed below my data is in Cells A1 thru E3. I want to get output in Column H for this data but with text additions. For eg: in A1 I have Rachel 1/1 however in H1 that should become "My name is Rachel 1/1"....
I found this spreadsheet on here and I have been trying to customize it to what I need. I am trying to have scores from skins match highlighted. I want only the minimum score to be highlighted but if there is another duplicate minimum score I don't want it to highlight anything. I also need to find a way to count the skins won by each player and have it off to the side.
For those not familiar with golf a Skin is a game where you try to get the lowest amount of strokes on a specific hole. Ex- 4 people play the hole one. P1 scores 4, P2 gets a 3, P3 and P4 get 6. The skin would go to P2 who has the lowest score on that hole.
Highlight lowest number in each column not highlighting if there are duplicates starting at L6 down to L11 and for each column till AC. And the same for the group just to the right on attached file.
On row 13 and 14 it tells me who won a skin. I want to tally up the total skins won by each player. so if Joe's names shows up twice on R14 I want it to tell me somewhere in the sheet Joe = 2
A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.
