# Subtract Cell From Others Based On Cell Content

Sep 3, 2007

I am trying to create a formula that will compute a variance between the numeric value in a given cell with the value in one of 3 other cells depending on the condition of the 1st cell. Example: If the Value in cell F4 has a condition defined as "PMR" in cell C4, subtract the value in cell F19 from F4. If the condition is defined as "DBR" in cell C4, subtract the value in F20 from F4. And if the condition is "OTH", subtarct the value in F21 from F4.

## Change Content Of One Cell Based On Content Of Another

Apr 18, 2014

Formula/macro/etc that would enable me to have content of a cell changed based on the content of another cell in the same row.

Example: cell in column D says "PSA" - so I would need the cell in column H for that same row to read "Radio"

I would need an entire sheet scanned to review for these occurrences and make the appropriate changes. I also would need the formula to be inclusive enough to scan for variations in column D cell content (PSA 1, PSA 2, etc).

## Modify Cell Background Color Based On Cell Content

I am working on developing QR Codes using some MATLAB code and it would be really convenient if I could create an excel program which changed the background color of a cell containing a 1 to black and a cell containing a 0 to white.

## Using A Formula To Populate A Cell With Certain Data Based On Content Of Another Cell?

Jul 7, 2014

I am currently trying to create a spreadsheet whereby if I enter certain text in a cell in Column A on worksheet 1 that correlates with text in a cell in Column A on Worksheet 2, then the description in Column B in Worksheet 2 is entered into Column B on worksheet 1.

For example, if worksheet 2 has the following:

Column A Column B
XXXX PRODUCT 1
YYYY PRODUCT 2

and I enter XXXX in column A on worksheet 1, I want Column B on worksheet 1 to automatically enter PRODUCT 1.

## Multiple Find And Replace Cell Content Based On Another Cell?

Mar 25, 2014

multiple search match and replace content in a different column so for example

new workbook (look up table)
sku
search1
search2

[Code]....

so something like where you compare two tables and find and replace based on another cell that matches in my sku.. more details would be if the table column aren't exactly matching but the column header and the row header would match and fill or replace in the correct/corresponding cell is there a macro or vba to do this job in excel?

## Deleting Cell Content Based On Entry In One Cell?

Mar 22, 2014

I have a sheet that I fill out with customer data then print and start over with the next customer. This requires me to tab and delete through the sheet before starting the next entry and I am wondering if there is some way to auto clear the unlocked cells based on a single entry IE when we entered new data in the 1st field this would clear the unlocked cells and make them ready for new data?

## Clear Cell Content Based On Another Cell Calculation

Dec 21, 2012

I have a cell A1 in sheet2 linked cell A1 in sheet1 (simply A1='sheet1'!A1). A1 in sheet1 is a data validation drop down menu.

I want to clear the content of A2 in sheet 2 everytime the content of A1 in sheet2 changes/is updated. That is everytime the value of A1 in sheet1 is changed using the drop down menu.

I tried using a Worksheet_Change event macro (which I do not fully understand) but it won't work with a cell that updates from a calculation. It also doesn't work if triggered from a cell from another worksheet (I tried linking it to cell A1 on sheet1 in this case).

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Intersect(Target, Range("A1")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
Range("A2").ClearContents
End Sub

Any simple solution to clear the content of cell A2 in sheet2 when A1 in sheet2 updates?

## Change Cell Color Based On Cell Content

Feb 12, 2010

I have a chart full of different names which I need to separate them by color when a specific entry is found in a Cell. For example the list has the store name "ZELLERS" + its branch number. (ex. ZELLERS #276 PL or ZELLERS #295 SL and so on). I would like to modify the below code so that It only check for the name ZELLERS and not the branch number. If it finds ZELLERS in any cell In the Range of C1:C500 then color it Red.

Below Code does that but I have to write the exact name as it appears in the cell otherwise it wont find it for me. Is there any way to resolve the issue? I am not an Excel Programmer but Only an Excel user.

Option Compare Text
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Set r = Range("C1:C500")
If Intersect(Target, r) Is Nothing Then
Exit Sub
End If
On Error GoTo Endit
Application.EnableEvents = False
vals = Array("ZELLERS #276 PL", "ZELLERS #295 SL", "Gopher", "Hyena", "Ibex", "Lynx")
nums = Array(3, 46, 6, 3, 7, 4, 20, 10, 23, 15)

## Add Value Based On Cell Content

Mar 18, 2009

I have a named range (D:16 F:800) called “NameRange” which contains names.
I’d like to create a macro which offsets a letter “x”, 10 columns to the right everywhere that name appears within the range. As an example: If I’m trying to find the name Tom, A dropdown menu shows the name “Tom” ( which I’ve created) whereby it calls upon a script to search within the named range from this:

Bob Kim Tom
Tom Sue
Mary Bill Ted
Tom Sue Bob
Fred Bill Sue
Bob Tom Kim

and offset “x” to look like this:.......

## Message Box Based On Cell Content And Day?

Mar 18, 2012

I am working on a spread sheet for work were we have to test certain items on certain days, e.g. one item needs to be tested every Tuesday & Thursday, when the test is completed you click on a drop down box and click on completed or in progress.

What I would like are a couple of things to happen as follows:

A message box would pop up when you open the file to inform the employee that the test is due today only on Tuesday & Thursday if not completed or in progress from the drop down box. Once you select completed or in progress from the drop down box the message box no longer appears. Every Tuesday & Thursday when it's first open it deletes the cell content, thus triggering the message box test is due today, and once completed or in progress it no longer appears until next Tuesday or Thursday.

The spread sheet is on shared drive and used by several users, let's just say cell A1 is the cell I have the drop down box

## Run Macro Based On Cell Content

Aug 7, 2006

I have a drop down list made from the Forms toolbar with a list of items: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I have set it with a linked cell, so when you choose, say 3, from the dropdown, 3 appears in B10.

I was hoping to add a 'Go' button, which would run another macro depending on what is in B10, i.e. so if 3 was chosen, then you press 'Go', Macro3 would be run.

So I have 5 macros called Macro1 - Macro5, and I need some code for the 'Go' button which will run the right macro depending on what number is in cell B10.

## Sorting Certain Worksheets Based On Cell's Content

Jan 22, 2013

I have standardized each existing worksheets and any new worksheet to have certain parameters. The purpose of the Macro requested is ensure these worksheets are sorted alphabetically (and only these worksheets). The code I have been working with is contained below. It is working as expected but now I need to incorporate a statement which places the following condition:

Sort worksheets only if A3 has cell value of eCRF NameIgnore worksheet name: TOC & ENTER ECRF NAME

VB:
Sub Sort_Tabs()
'declare our variables
Dim i, j As Integer

## Formatting Row Of Cells Based On A Cell Content

Feb 16, 2010

I want to format a range of cells based on the name listed in a cell in column A (starting @A6). I currently do this manually. It is to help me visually see the line I am working with and for what person.

I am almost certain that is going to take a VBA, but I know little to nothing about setting one up.

I have attached a sample. I am using Excel 2003.

## Colour Object Based On Cell Content?

Mar 22, 2011

I have a circle object on an Excel spreadsheet(I used "Insert", "Shapes" to put it there).

I would like to change the colour of the circle object based on the contents of cell A1.

Cell A1 will be "Red", "Yellow" or "Green".

If I type "Green" into cell A1, then I would like the circle object to change to green.

If I type "Yellow" into cell A1, then I would like the circle object to change to yellow....

## VBA To Change Cell Color Based On Content

Feb 13, 2012

I have a large spring-selection table, which is populated with things like "4.88 x 635" and "5.26 x 584". There are 1520 fields in the table populated with any combination of the 432 springs available for selection. The spreadsheet takes my criteria, finds out which springs it's allowed to choose from, and populates the table. It could be 20 springs, could be 30. I'm trying to get the number down to 10. The table updates when I change the criteria.

What I'm after at this point is a macro which will color-code the table based on the cell contents, so that all the "4.88 x 635" have one color and all the "5.26 x 584" have another colour. Doesn't have to be any particular colour, just so long as it's a bit different to the cells around it. how the table reacts.

The biggest spring size is "6.93 x 1727", which could be converted to a color reference, perhaps by adding up all the digits, or taking out the non-digits and dividing by 123781, I don't know I'm thinking out loud. And then just assign the cell color to that number.

Where to start a macro like this. Obviously it would use ActiveCell.Interior.ColorIndex but I can't find anything like this on the web.

## VBA To Hide Rows Based On Cell Content

## Setting Colour Of Cell Based On Content

May 3, 2007

I have inherited a spreadsheet from someone else that rather cleverly (in my humble opinion) sets the colour dependant on the contents. ie negative value is red, zero is amber and positive is green.

i like the idea and would like to use it on a spreadsheet of my own, but have tried to find out how it is done and can't!

## Hide Columns Based On Cell Content

## Lookup Data Based On Cell Content

Sep 9, 2006

I am setting up a worksheet (1) with a full list of part numbers supplied, cost etc. ie:

Part Description Price Qty
1234 Blah Blah £1.00 1
1235 Blah Blah £3.00 0
1236 Blah Blah £2.00 2

And I have set up a seperate worksheet (2) as an invoice. What I have been trying to do is when I enter a qty in worksheet (1), worksheet (2) will reconise an entry in the qty colum an copy selected fields/ cells. I can do a "=" or use an "if" statement looking at anything greater than "0". but is there a way I can get the invoice worksheet to ignore any lines with "0". So it will only copy over the information with only qtys for the invoice ?.

## Format Border Based On Cell Content

Jul 12, 2007

I have a dynamic table (rows regularly added or deleted) that is generated automatically based on choices made by the user in another worksheet. I need a function that will examine all the cells in one column, and when it finds a difference between two cell entries, it will change the border between these two entries to dark (medium weight), and then extend this border across the table. The end result should be that wherever the cell contents differ within a column, the table is divided by a darker border across the entire row.

## Drop Down List Based On Cell Content

Jul 22, 2007

I'm trying to find a macro that will allow me to enable several drop down lists in the same cell based on the content of another cell. In other words:

If cell A1 is the data entry cell, and the user enters "cat"
Then cell B1 will display a drop down list of previously grouped options: "mouse, bug, bird"

If in cell A1 the user enters "dog"
Then cell B1 will display a different list of previously grouped options: "mole, rabbit, kibble"

## Display Image Based On Cell Content

I'm trying to display a different image based on the contents of a cell. For example if cell A1 = "Gerrard" I would then like to display a picture of Steven Gerarrd. Is this possible? If so can anyone give me a steer in how I might acheive this.

## Deleting Rows Based On Cell Content

Oct 17, 2007

I wish to remove the page headers that were imported along with the raw data. Here's the code I've been using.

Column_To_Check = 3
Start_Row = 1
End_Row = ActiveSheet. Cells(Start_Row, Column_To_Check).CurrentRegion.Rows.Count
MsgBox End_Row
Search_String = "."
For Row_Counter = Start_Row To End_Row
If ActiveSheet.Cells(Row_Counter, Column_To_Check).Value <> Search_String Then
ActiveSheet.Rows(Row_Counter).Delete
Row_Counter = Row_Counter - 1
End If
Next Row_Counter
End Sub

When I import the data from the text file, there are 3 dimensions separated by a period in the same field. I.E: ABC.DEF.GHI and I use the break points to seperate as such: ABC|.|DEF|.|GHI|. Therefore, all rows that contain data also contain a period in cell C, but headers don't.

The Problem

End_Row = ActiveSheet.Cells(Start_Row, Column_To_Check).CurrentRegion.Rows.Count

CurrentRegion only selects up to the first blank row. However, I need this to select the whole sheet, not just the current region.
