Excel 2007 :: Format Rows Based On 1st Cell Populated?

Nov 16, 2012

I am using Excel 2007

I am trying to conditionally format rows based on the first cell in each row. I had this working in a previous worksheet and have gone through several examples based on answers in other threads but do not for the life of me know what I am doing wrong. I am using the conditional formating rules on the ribbon menu.

I have a range A3-W100 pre-formatted with generic data and formulae. Column A has no data. I want the text to change color for that row if the cell in column A is populated. The background and text are set to black to appear unpopulated.

When an item number is entered in column A3, the text color in row 3 changes to white. I can get this to work on one row but if I extend it through the range, all rows change. I want them only to change if the respective A cell is populated.

I am using
Formula is =A3>""
Format is Yellow,
Applies to =$A$3:$V$100
Stop if True is unchecked

All I can get is column B to change color.

Excel 2007 :: Grabbing Format Of Cell To Use Content?

Jul 11, 2012

I have a file which included monetary amounts in many currencies, which appear in Excel 2007 as:

232.44 EUR
103,796.10 CZK
18,071.08 PHP

I need to use the value and currency code, but unfortunately the currency code is part of the cell format (so I can't use, say =right(3) to grab it.

The cell format is set to: #,##0.00 "EUR" , with each cell set according to the currency within.

Of course I will be going back to the source to see what I can do to get something more useful directly, but is there any way I can grab the currency code so I can use it ?

Excel 2007 :: Conditionally Format Cell To Have The Fill Color Of Different Cell

May 25, 2011

I have a spread sheet and I want to conditionally format rows to be a certain color. That part I'm fine with. But I don't want them to be a set color. I have a "key" of different colored cells that I want to be the fill colors of the formatting. The ultimate goal is that for example the key looked like this

red
blue
yellow
green

then the rows I had would be formatted as red, blue, yellow, and green. But if you were to go into the key and change the first cell from red to purple, then the rows would become formatted as purple, blue, yellow, and green. Obviously I can copy formating by hand using the format painter, but I want it to update automatically.

The cell content is to be 0-7 characters in length.

Alpha characters only, i.e., no numeric.

First character must be uppercase.

Is that possible to do in MS Excel 2007?

Excel 2007 :: Reference A Cell That Is 10 Rows Below The Cell That Is Being Referenced To In Row Above

Dec 28, 2013

If C5 refers to the value in cell C100, C6 refers to the value in C110 ten rows below. C7 refers to C120, ten rows below that and so on. Is there a formula that you use within excel (not a macro) that allows me to copy the C7 formula to C8 so that C8 will reference C130?

I have tried using INDIRECT and OFFSET formulas but cannot do it without an absolute reference to a fixed cell, which defeats the purpose, since I can go into C8 and manually change it to =C130, C9 to =C140 etc.

Currently using Excel 2007 at work and Mac Pro at home. Thought about R1C1 reference, but don't even know how to change to that style on my Mac.

Excel 2007 :: Sum In Table Based On Another Cell Value

Mar 23, 2012

I have been tasked with doing a work tracker so we can see what work operatives have done between a date range. The processing of the date range is being done in VBA.

The tracking info comes from an external table that is linked into Excel (version 2007). This table is also filtered.

The problem I have is that there are 3 different tasks that the operative can be doing (each has a different time on how long it should take to complete the task, however that is irrelevant for what I need).

This results in multiple entries in the table (min of 1, max of 3) for each operative. There is a seperate column in the table as well which has the total number of each task that they have done.

So for example the table looks similar to this.

Clock No - Task - Sum of task
239 ------- A -------- 5
239 ------- B ------- 10
239 ------- C ------- 15

What I want to be able to do is to get the sum total for the sum of tasks for the operative, so in the above example for operative 239 I want a value of 30

Is there a formula that can do this? (it is a filtered table so the formula needs to count only visible items)

I have tried playing around with

=SUMPRODUCT(SUBTOTAL(3,OFFSET($A:$A,ROW($A:$A)-MIN(ROW($A:$A)),,1)), --($A:$A=K414315))

but I cant get what I need.

Excel 2007 :: Get Cell To Refer To Date That It Contains And Change Cell Colour Based On That?

Dec 19, 2012

I work for a UK charity and have a list of funders in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet.

One of the columns refers to the date on which a new application for funding can be made to that particular funder.

In many cases new applications for funding can't be made for 1 or more years since the last application - sometimes as many as 5 years later. How to get a cell to refer to the date that it contains.

For example, say I have in cell A1 "The Acme Funding Organisation" and in cell B1 (i.e. the "Reapply when?" column) a date of 01/04/2013 (British date format, i.e. 1 April 2013) then what I want Excel to do is to look at the date in cell B1 and if that date has been reached to highlight the cell red. That way I'll know that the reapply date has been reached & that a new application can be made.

Excel 2007 :: Send Email Based On Cell Value?

Feb 21, 2012

send the sheet to an email address based on the email address in a cell.

The cell populates from a dropdown list a user selects.

The email will be sent to myself, and one authoriser. If a second authoriser is required then the first authoriser will send this on. I'm trying to make this simple, so when a user clicks a 'send' button on the form this happens automatically.

The code I'm using to send to myself is

Application.Dialogs(xlDialogSendMail).Show arg1:="bibbyd01@myemailaddress.com", _
arg2:="Auth Details"

Nice and easy. So how do I replace that email addres with the email address in a cell? I assume I have to create a DIM to hold the data, then use it to populate the address field?

I'm using excel 2007 if it makes any difference.

Excel 2007 :: Restrict Cell Input Based On Another Cell Value

Jan 22, 2013

I am working in both 2003 and 2007 Excel.

This is a simplified version of my worksheet:

I have two cells, A2 and B2. When I enter a numeric value into B2, I want it only allowed when certain text values are in A2. I.E.: Allow any value in B2, but only if A1 is either "SYDN or "ADEL".

Now using info found in an old post, I can achieve this with a combination of data validation and code:
=OR(A2="SYDN",A2="ADEL") for the validation and for the code:

[Code] ......

The only problem is I also need to reset B2 if A2 changes to invalid data as a result of some other input to that cell (A2). In other words if B2 is showing "1" already and A2 were to change from "SYDN" to say "LOND", then B2 needs to be cleared. If A2 changed to "ADEL" then it doesn't need to clear but it is ok if it does because it is fine to re-enter "1" into B2 again.

I have attempted to attach a sample worksheet : Xl0000003.xls‎

Excel 2003 :: Insert Rows Then Format Cell In New Row?

Apr 11, 2013

Excel 2003 / WinXP. I have a list object with 5 columns, A - E, and all cells have a border round them. I need a macro which will:

1. insert a row below the current row (whatever cell happens to be selected)

2. then remove the left hand border of the cell in column B in the new row,

3. then select the adjacent cell in column C in the new row ready for data entry.

Obviously I cannot specify any absolute addresses in the code, and this is where all my attempts to record a suitable macro fall down.

Excel 2007 :: Auto-populate Cells Based On Value In Another Cell?

Example: If A1 = No, then B1 = "N/A" and is locked, else allow selection from drop down list in B1

Excel 2007 :: Adding Feedback Message Based On Cell Value?

Jan 9, 2012

Using Excel from Office 2007, and WinXP Pro OS

I have a spreadsheet which contains 2 drop down pick lists in Field1 and Field2.

Code:
FIELD1 | FIELD2 | FIELD3
--------------------------------------------
In Cell A2, I have this set in Data > Data Validation:

Allow: List
Source: =CatList

If the user selects a value from the CatList range, then the drop-down options in Field2 are updated accordingly.

In Cell B2, I have this set in Data > Data Validation:

Allow: List
Source: =INDIRECT(A2)

The Ranges are as follows:

Code:
Cat1 | Cat2 | Cat3
---------------------------------------------
Cheese | Hat | Square
Trees | Cat | Circle
Bees | Sat | Triangle
Knees | Mat | Rectangle
Apologies | Bat | Octagon

I'd really like to be able to add a message into FIELD3, which is based on the value in Cat2

e.g. using pseudocode, something like:

If Field2 value = "Apologies" then put this message in Field3: "This requires approval from A"
elseif Field2 value = "Triangle" then put this message in Field3: "This requires approval from XYZ"
elseif Feidl2 value = "Bat" then put this message in Field3: "This does not require approval"

Basically this is for an access form, and I need to be able to add a feedback message to field3 based on what's in Field2.

I thought about using the INDIRECT option to add messages but I can't see how I'd do it. Maybe VB would do it, but I don't know it well enough.

Excel 2007 :: Populate Another Cell Based On Selection In Dropdown List

Mar 7, 2013

[URL]....When I select a name in column B, it populates column C's dropdown with that name's list of units. When I select a unity type in column C, I'd like it to automatically populate column E in the same row with the value associated with that unit. The values associated with a particular unit can be found to the right of the sheet. So if in row 2 I select Blake in column B, then Unit 5 in column C, I'd like column E to be populated with 14.

Edit: using Excel 2007.

I attached stripped down version of the sheet which is small enough to post. None of the things I removed should affect the topic at hand. The full sheet is available at rapidshare.

Excel 2007 :: Saving File With Name Based On Cell Contents With Custom Formatting

Aug 16, 2012

I have a worksheet that has a number in cell K5 - the number is generated on "file open" code and is custom formatted as "TN"0000. Thus 1 appears as TN0001, 2 as TN0002 and so on. I am trying to save a copy of the workbook based on the this cells contents i.e. TN0001.xls, TN0002.xls etc. but the files are saved as 1.xls or 2.xls. The code I am using is

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="C:DataExcelFORMSDelivery Note" & Range("K5") & ".xls", _
FileFormat:=xlNormal, ReadOnlyRecommended:=True, CreateBackup:=False

I know I must make reference to format within the above....but how? if try something like

" & Format(Range("K5").Value, ("TN""0000")) & ".xls"

I get TN00000.xls

Excel 2007 :: Conditional Formatting And Adding Text To Cell Based On Multiple Cells

May 31, 2013

I'm using Excel 2007. I would prefer to stay away from the scripting side of the house if possible. This is basically a 3 day forcast weather chart. The top is the actual weather data, the bottom portion is a color coded reflection of how the weather affects various things.

This product is created in excel, but will be embedded into a powerpoint. It will be updated daily. Here is what I would like. I want the color chart at the bottom to update automatically based on the data I enter above. I have a grasp that I can update the color through conditional formatting, although im not exactly sure what that will look like with all of those cells.

I also figured out that I can insert the letters in those lower cells with something similar to " =IF(C6>90, "T", "") " which would put in a 'T' for Temperature when the temperature got above a certain degree.

I run into a problem when I have multiple factors affecting a single cell. For instance on the example in day 2 of my image. Personnel are affected by Temperate AND UV Index. How would I set up that cell to pull that information from both of those cells and display it accordingly? I would prefer the letters to stay separated by the comma, but I could live without that. The default cell color will be green, with the potential to be yellow or red. I left a few examples of possible situations on day 2 and 3.

Conditional Formatting To Format Cells On Several Rows Below According To The Day In 2007

Sep 8, 2009

Im having aproblem with Excel 2007 about Conditional Formatting. I have a row of Dates for example 02-01-2009 03-01-2009 04-01-2009 , etc in different columns.

Then what I want to do is use Conditional Formatting to Format cells on several rows below according to the day (if its weekend paint red, if not, dont do anything). I'm using the "Use a formula to determine which cells to format" and the condition is (supposing the cells with dates are A1 to C1)
=WEEKDAY(A1:C1) > 5 .

So with those 3 dates provided lets suppose Januar2nd is not a weekday, so the outputIwant is: Red White White, (Next Row) Red White White, etc for several rows.

Now what I think is not right is it only works for the row in which I have the cursor so its like: (Lets imagine I selected 3 rows on which I want to see that output) Red White White (The row in which the cursor is works fine), but the next row goes Red Red Red and the third the same.
