VBA Conditional Formatting To Highlight Certain Conditions
Oct 2, 2009
I have a spreadrsheet (sample attached) which populates a calender due to columns on seperate sheets being filled with text and corresponding dates. I started using conditional formatting to highlight certain conditions but soon realised I need more than 3 so I tried looking into VBA - and failed.
All the cells in the calender have the 3 usual conditions associated to them but in addition I need to be able to colour individual cells if they contain certain phrases or parts of phrases like "BP" or "Current"
I would like to highlight cells is two conditions are met:Cell = 0Offset(0,-1)>0I tried the conditional format wizard and entered a formula: =IF(AND($J2=0,$I2>0)) But I keep receiving formual errors, which I understand, because it appears to be incomplete formula. But I am not sure what else I need to add to the formula in the conditional format wizard
In the attached spreadsheet, the numbers in col A derived from another spreadsheet. The table D1:L21 is precaculated based on projection. I need 2 cells highlighted when they capture the number from the same row (col A). In another word, whenever the number from col A fall in between the 2 cells in the same row, they will be highlighted. Another condition is when it is smaller then 10 reps, the corresding cell in col D will be highlighted, as demonstrated in the attached table. I tried AND(E2<A2, F2>A2) but it didn't work. I also tried LARGE((E2:L2<A2)*(E2:L2),1) and similar SMALL function. They work as an array in normal excel, but not in the conditional formatting.
I am trying to fill a cell green if the current value > avg value and in red if < than avg value. I have tried to use conditional formatting but I cannot see where i can add additional rules. In any case here is what I am trying to do:
Daily Avg. Units:42 Avg Bgt. Units:7
The cell containing the number 42 is filled in green. If the figure was less than 7 it would have been red.
Why is there a hard limitation like this? Is there a way to go around it? By having a different format for the cells outside the 3 conditions I can get 4 different formats altogether, but that's not really that much.
I'm using Excel 2000 which has a limit of three conditions, I have 6. If you could just get me started, I still don't understand VBA enough to do this.
In cell A1, the color is set to red. I want A1 to turn green when all 6 conditions are met:
1. Cell B1 has a valid value from its pull down list, no other value, and not empty. 2. Cell B2 has an integer, no decimal places allowed, and not empty. 3. Cell B3 has a valid value from its pull down list, no other value, and not empty 4. Cell B4 is not empty. 5. Cell B5 has a three decimal place number greater than zero. 6. Cell B6 has a single letter from A-Z only.
I am trying to colour cells depending on the text in the cell. The text includes letters and symbols (e.g. A+ or C). The problem is I have five different conditions and Excel will only let me set up three.
The conditions I require are: Text: A+ or A Colour: Pink Text: A- or B+ Colour: Light Orange Text: B or B- Colour: Sea Green Text: C+ or C Colour: Lavender Text: C- or D Colour: Brown
Need to figure out a code for Conditional formatting to work for 4 cases. I dropped programming 5 yrs ago...have forgotten mostly everything but I know this can be done. What I need:
Range = entire sheet Upon entering a date(X) anywhere in the row the date is calculated from today's date(Y) and if the date entered is -infinity to 30 then the entire row turns red. 31 to 60 days orange, 61 to 90 days yellow, 91 to 120 days green, 120+ nothing.
Basically Y-X. Case <30 red row Case 31-60 orange row Case 61-90 Yellow row Case 91-120 Green Row 121+ nothing.
I'm trying to add conditional formatting to a column of data but there are more than 3 conditions. Is there a way of increasing the number of conditions you are able to set using the conditional formatting wizard or, if not, is there a way of applying conditional formatting using VBA ?
I am trying to use conditional formatting for a cell; It is a cell using Validation; you can choose "Yes" or "No" from a list If the value is "Yes" the cell should be green, regardless of everything else But if the value is "No" it should turn red, but only if a choice in another cell is equal to "X". Otherwise it should be left without special formatting.
I have a spreadsheet that contains a great deal of information, though most if it contains dates. There are some colums that contain the word "NEED" if i don't yet have the date to put in there, and the cell is yellow. What i want to do is set up conditional formatting to change the cell to pink if:
A)the cell contains the "Need"
B)The date in the corresponding row from column C is more than 15 days old.
I am working on a spreadsheet in Excel 2007 and i am trying to use a formula in the conditional formatting that will highlight a cell if the date is prior to today's date and the next column over is no. the formula i am using right now is =IF(F2>TODAY(),IF(G2="NO",TRUE,)). the problem i am having is that it is highlighting all cells that have a date and the next column over is no.
i can't figure out how to get it to do an if this, then that function correctly. one other thing that could potentially be causing my problem is that the cells. I am trying to have highlight are calculated themselves based on a formula. see the attached spreadsheet for information.
i am trying to highlight the cells red in the b column if a3=d3 (if names match) and if b3<e3 (only if name is "a" should e3 be used to compare with b3). hope this makes sense. i've attached a sample worksheet.
i've tried =if(b3<e3, (vlookup(a3,d3:e33,1,false),true)...but does not work correctly. i need the average weight to remain constant according to the name when comparing, but if i drag the formula down to other cells, the average weight does not correspond to the name.
What i want to do is highlight all row instances where that row column10 has the text "Roller" . All i can see is the forumular =$J1="Roller" ive tryed to select just the single cell J and tryed the whole row and a range. Though i get a error message about =-+ quotation ect.
