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.
e.g. Cell H4 contains the word no. I then change this so that it says "yes". I want the background of row 4 to go red. so A4, b4, c4, d4, e4, h4 all go red.
With the type of conditional formatting i normally do i can only get cell H4 to go Red by putting cell value = yes as the condition. I cant for the life of me think of a formula or way round of doing this.
I am trying to setup a monthly calendar. What I want to do is have it so that if you type "apples I want some", the cell changes colour to green, and also the apples doesnt appear in the cell. So when you press enter, all you will see is a green cell that says "I want some"
I was wondering if there was a way in VB within the worksheet to make this happen?
I have a simple due date spread sheet for tasks that need completing at work. I am able to make the 'Due date' cell turn red when it is equal to or less than todays date, using conditional formatting. No problem.
I also have a 'Date closed' cell which is populated with a date when the task is complete.
What I am struggling to do however is change the red 'Due Date' cell to Grey once the 'Date Closed' cell is populated with a date. In fact I would like the whole row to be greyed out once the 'Date Closed' cell is populated.
I also have an 'Open / Closed' cell, which tells me if a task is open or closed, being chosen from a drop down I installed. Could this be used as an alternative to the 'Date Closed' cell. ie If someone selects 'Closed' in cell A4 the whole A row goes grey.
How to colour cells depending on text in other cells, for example,
I would like cells D26:AA26 to turn light red if the letters 'FSM' are in cell 'E26' even if other text appears in it, eg 'SA+/FSM' I have been playing about with conditional formatting but can seem to solve the mixed text issue?
On one of our computers at work, Excel is acting especially strange. The conditional formatting in Excel on one of our computers is not working. In addition, we cannot fill a cell with any color or change the color of the writing. We can click a color for the letters and type it in, but immediately after another cell is highlighted, the writing goes black again. When we try to highlight multiple cells with the cursor, the cells are black instead of the normal color. This happens to not just spreadsheets that are new, but existing spreadsheets on our shared drive from only this one computer as well. No other computers are affected this way. All other computers show the spreadsheets fine and do not have any functionality issues.
I want to change the back ground colour of each row until G column when there is a text in the first cell. I have attached the excel that I want the background colour to be. Like suppose, F1 is the details of family 1, F2 is for family 2. I want each family to be coloured. The rows are not fixed for each family. If F1 details are coloured green, Fr is orange, F3 is green and F4 is orange again. And the number F1, F2, F3, F4 and so on are not ordered in ascending. They can be random. But I want the colour coding to be the same as what I have shown in the excel. I have so many rows like that. How do I do that using excel. I have tried conditional formatting. But it doesn't work.
How I can change the background colour of cell C:2 depending on what other cell i click? Below a sample of the code im using Basically when i click B:2 i want C:2 to turn grey with the text on top.... Then when i click B:4 i want C:2 to turn Red.....
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Select Case Target.Address Case Is = "$B$2" Range("D2").Value = "No action needed connector is down" 'change this to suit Case Is = "$B$3"
I have a large list of students (Col a,b) who do several sports (up to 10) each, which are arranged as sport name (Col c) followed by score (col d), repeated on pairs of columns for the other 9 sports.
I need a macro to find the 4 highest scoring sports for each student in turn and to highlight the score and sport cells. I have tried to find permutations using the LARGE function but I cannot see how I can do this.
In a column in my spreadsheet i have to input a number; either: 51-61 and next to it is either m or o. so in Column A row 1 : 51m, Column A row 2 60m, etc Example:
51m 51o 55o 60m
I want to conditionally format this such that for 51 it turns the cell background green, for 52 red, 53 orange,etc. with a number having a specific color associated with it. 03' does not have a text choice.
Im trying to create a stock database based on a colour traffic light system. I have 2 set columns, the first is 'recommended stock' the second is 'actual stock'
When you paste in your requirements into the 3rd column it subtracts it from the acutal stock which tells you how much your recommended stock is short by.
What ive got as well is any stock above 1+ shows up in green (this needs changing - see below), anything below 0 shows up in red. What im struggling with is i want a rule that reads the recommended stock level, then flags it up yellow when the actual stock levels drop to 10% of full stock.
how to use the conditional formatting if that is the way.
On this particular formula but my colleagues have informed me that they require cells with no dates in to have no colour fill. Firstly, I have searched and tried myself with no success on stopping the below formulas from filling empty cells with red, they are as below;
I am trying to colour a whole row of data (in columns A through to AA) based on the numeric entry in column AB. The numeric entry is either 1, 2 or 3. I reckoned I needed to use the IF function, but as writing formula is not my strong point I am struggling to enter the correct data! The first row of data I wish to use is 3. I have tried the following but to no avail: =IF($AB3,1). =IF($AB3=1). =IF($AB3="1").
I am having problems with conditional formatting,on sheet1 ,if column "n" is yes then it is coloured red,when I search database say f124 I would like all records for f124 to appear and keep column "n" red or even better the whole row red,it seems just to locate all records with "n" =no and all orange /brown colour
I need a formula which will, alike conditional formatting, change the colour of a cell based on date or another cell.
For Example, If I was to enter a value of today's date it would be green up to a 3 month period, after 3 months it turns to amber and after 6 months red.
I can do it with conditional formatting on the date function when converted to days (see attached). Is there any way I can make the date updated column automatically match the date difference colour with a formula?
