this seems like such a simple thing to do but I just cannot suus it out. Basically I want to Highlight a cell depending on another cells value:

ie. I have a value in Cell A1 and a value in Cell B1, in Cell C1 I have an IF statement that dsplays the word 'NO' if the values in A1 & B1 are not equal. In Cell D1 I have the word Fault. I would like to highlight Cell D1 if the Cell C1 displays the word 'NO'

I have Column A with 380 cells filled in with numbers (A1-A380) i.e. numbers like..456758, 567848 etc etc

Column B has a subset of those numbers, maybe 80-90 or so (B1-B90).

What I want to do is either highlight the numbers in Column A that also appear in Column B in yellow, OR delete them from Column A altogether

I have a couple of spreadsheets that has several columns each containing several hundred thousand rows of codes. To quickly analyze this data, I am trying to come up with a conditional formatting formula to highlight the respective cells when specific values occur next to each other. A particular code will show up in many cells, but the code that is the respective adjacent cell is always different. I need to know when row A contains, for example, '9928559' and row B contains '36415RT'.

For example, column A has the days of the week. I wanted the whole row highlighted if it was a Saturday. I used:

=INDIRECT("a"&Row())="Sat"

What I want to do now is to highlight specific cells (Columns F and G) if column A has Friday in it. I do not want the whole row highlighted if it contains Friday.

each month i have to clens a sheet that shows customer name and then the figures per month.

this is pulled from a system that allows for a new entry each time a variation on customer name is used, I.E

Joe Blogs LTD

Joe Blogs Limited

Joe Blogs ltd.

would all come through as new entries. then i have to manually consolidate the figures from each month. the spreadsheet has over 5000 rows, and maybe only 15% are duplicated. what i want is to be able to select the column (that will be sorted a-z) and highlight cells that have a match for the first 4 or 5 charicters.

once i have identified duplicates i then have to merge the data into one row.

is there an easy way to do this? it is monthly, comparing 2008 and 2009, so by december there will be 24 columns + the company name that need to be clensed.

Have been doing some sums on excel. I've managed to calculate the number of months between 2 dates using this formula.....

=DATEDIF(C3,D3,"y")&" years "&DATEDIF(C3,D3,"ym")&" months "

I then come up with a list of months calculated.

What I now want to know is, how many are equal to or more than 9 months? And if this is the case then can the cells be highlighted in a different colour?

I have 13 sheets of data in my open workbook. Column D, which includes blank cells at times, across each of these sheets maps the same info. of orders. However, I know there are several duplicates, and I want to clean them out. I am trying to figure out a way to highlight all the duplicates that appear only in column D beginning with sheet 4 and ending with sheet 13. I will leave the duplicates that appear on Sheets 5-13 alone, but I want to have them highlighted, so I can review the ones that appear on sheet 4 first, and then delete them.

Is there anyway to link the specialty column with his name so that whenever his name comes up on the other worksheets, the specialty will be automatically filled in with the correct specialty value? I want to be able to do that with all the doctors.

Also, I want to highlight certain doctors in all the seperate sheets, I have Excel 2007 on my home PC, but on my work PC I have Excel 2002. To do this in Excel 07 I would just conditionally format the workbook to highlight certain names, but I cant seem to find a way to do this in Excel 02.

I have a similar question regarding coloring of empty cells between two cells with specific numbers as posted in below thread : [URL] .....

This is exactly what I want. But here I have some problem with formula.

=COUNTIF(A1:Z1,1)=1

Above formula could pick cell value 1 and color the empty cells in a row between the cells having value=1. But if I want to use the same formatting for other numbers like 2 or 3 it doesn't work.

For example in row(A1:Z1) I have A1=1, D1=1, and F1=2, K1=2, and O1=3, U1=3

I required multiple conditional formatting that could color the cells based on values first from A to D then from F to K and finally from O to U.

I'm using above formatting it works with cells having values 1 but its not working for 2, 3 or any other cells values.

I have already tried replacing 1 in above formula with 2 and 3 but it doesn't work.

See attched spreadsheet. I would like excel to highlight the rows where a value (model) = *.* (ie: not a whole number). I think the attached spreadsheet explains it better.

View 2 Replies View RelatedMy sheet cotains a variable number of duplicates (2 up to 12 duplicates) that can each have different amounts.

Ex: 9879 = 7

9879 = 0

I would like to be able to highlight all the duplicates for that show only 0 as their value (all the duplicates must have a total value of 0). I've tried nested if functions and conditional formating but to no avail.

I've attached a small file that shows the end result.

Example.xls

My sheet contains a variable number of duplicates (2 up to 14 duplicates) that can each have different amounts.

Ex: 9879 = 7

9879 = 0

I would like to be able to highlight all the duplicates for that show only 0 as their value (all the duplicates must have a total value of 0). I've tried nested if functions and conditional formating but to no avail.

I have a range of say B1:Z2. In row B1:Z1 I have dates in the format dd-mmm-yy. In row B2:Z2 I indicate presence of a person by "P". This is at infrequent appearance i.e. p,p,p,blank,blank,blank,p,p,p,p,p,blank,blank,p,p,blank,p,p,p, etc. I am trying to find or workout a formula that would find the most repetitive Ps in row B2:Z2 and give me the sum thereof. I.e, from the above example it should be 5. It does not have to count specifically P. Something that counts the most non-blank sequence of cells in the range should also do.

View 8 Replies View RelatedI have a spreadsheet where i would like to 'count' the number of cells with a particular colour AND SPECIFIC text (not 'any text').

I attach a xls with the initials of the person in column A, their colour as seen in cells in next four columns with the particular text in each cell. Therefore, for 'ABC1', in the given range, I would like to count how many cells have been allocated with the particular colour (brown, do not know colour index) and the particular text (1 or 2 or 4 or 5) in the range A1:CK39. Haven't supplied the actual sheet for confidentiality reasons.

I am sure this should be REALLY simple, but i just can't find the answer i'm looking for. I have a sheet which changes daily in quantity of information. I want some simple code which counts up the number of populated cells in column A and returns the answer to a cell in another worksheet - or just automatically use it to print that number of pages.

I think i should be able to do the printing side, but, currently have no idea how to count up the number of populated cells in the row. If someones feeling very generous though, giving me the code for printing that number of pages too would save me some work (the worksheet which needs printing is different to the worksheet which needs the number of cells adding up.)

What formula or function truncates a text field that is in the following consistent format:

number. name

ie. 3. Super Bella

and 150. Taoist

I wish to truncate the field so I have just the integer without the dot, space or word(s).

Tried Len, Left & Replace but they require a specific number of characters. Since the number can be 1 to 3 digits long, this doesn't work.

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

I am trying to do is I have column C and column G. For each row, I want to highlight or change the font color of the greater number. I can do it with conditional formatting, but I am only able to do it for 1 row at a time and it will take forever considering there are over 800 rows.

Is there an easy way to compare the two columns and highlight or change the font color of the higher number in that row?

For example:

C G

4 5

8 1

6 2

9 11

So it would highlight the 5 in the first row, the 8 in the second row, the 6 in the third row, and 11 in the fourth row.

I have a spreadsheet that contains given answers to a multiple choice test. I want to count the number of times each possible answer has been chosen at the bottom of the column. I have tried to use COUNTIF and that works fine to give me the number times each answer has been chosen but there is just one annoying thing. If the given answer hasn't been chosed by anyone, a "0" is automatically entered into the cell. This tends to really clutter up the spreadsheet and I would prefer for the cell to be left blank if the answer hasn't been chosen by anyone.

The closest I can come up with is: {=IF(D1:D10="","",COUNTIF(D1:D10,"A"))} but unless the answer "A" is chosed in D1, the cell remains blank.

If "A" is chosed in D1, then the formula works and counts all the rest of the cells that have "A" as an answer.

So I have this list (I made it a little bit shorter).

So what you see is two different tasks (01 and 02) and three different conditions (A, B and C). In column B you see the result I would like to have. '/Searchtask_01.html' in A1 belongs to conditions A, because it is in session A. However, '/Searchtask_01.html' in A10 belongs to conditions B, because it is in session B.

How to get the results in B with a formula?

I have a spreadsheet which is linked to several other worksheets. I have managed to include formulas to count how many cells have numbers between 101 and 5000 by using this formula -

=sum((h2:h500>=101)*(h2:h500<=5000))

but now I want to count the number of cells in another worksheet that are equal to or less than zero. When I use the same formula as above it counts all the blank cells. I have tried using a countblank formula and then deducting this from the result, but unless the other worksheet is open the countblank formula does not work.

On the attached sheet I am trying to indicate that enough data has been entered by highlighting the entire column. Any 3 cells in Rows 7-13 and 18-36 will be filled in with any of the values from cells O6-O11 (hidden). When the total = 6 i would like to highlight the entire column to indicate it has been completed.

The aim is two fold: to ensure that the correct number of points is allocated in each race, and secondly to indicate which column is the next to be filled in (as human error sometimes misses the column and adds the points to either the previous or next columns). You could call it idiot proofing the sheet. At present i have the cells in Row 37 conditional formatted to show this, but would much prefer the entire column to highlight.

Any method to determine the number of instances a value ("4" for example) appears next to a specific value ("x" for example). I don't have a workbook; I'm just looking for any formula that can search for specific values and find the total number of instances that an adjoining cell contains data.

View 3 Replies View RelatedI have a problem regarding highlighting a specific cell, when i entered a specific date in another cell

Let me explain

If there is a Name, joining date, termination date/resignation date in cell A1 A2 & A3 respectively.

If the name is John, Joining date = 01/01/2012, Resignation Date 06/06/13

I need a formula which highlights the cell A2 plus all those cells which have the same date when i entered a date (i.e 01/01/2012) in another cell.

I have a large document control register and it is updated daily and posted to a cloud for many people to access. It is very time consuming to constantly jump in and out and highlight and unhighlight as many things as there are and keeping track of which items that need to be unhighlighted. The thing I'm trying to figure out is if there is a formula for this...If i change any cell in a row I want the row to highlight itself entirely, but after 24 hours I want the highlight to expire. Is there a formula or function I can use to make this happen?
