Q: Conditional Format Custom Formula Google Sheets

I am using conditional formatting with a custom formula in Google Sheets to fill color the minimum and maximum values in a column.

The minimum works just fine:

But if I change min to max nothing in the column gets highlighted.

The range is set to AG2:AG25

The format is applied in Cell A2 and is based on a formula (C2+D2)>=0

I can get this to work fine for one cell, but I want to apply it down as far as cell A28 (for values in C28 and D28).

Is there an easy way to do this?

If it's possible to do this, what is the formula syntax for an if/then formula in one sheet that refers to the cell value in another sheet in the same workbook?
For example in Sheet 2, the formula would be something like, if Cell A10 in Sheet 1 is greater than 0, then the value of Cell B20 in Sheet 2 would by "Yes" but it would be "No" if the valuein Cell A10 in Sheet 1 was less than 0.

Thank You,

I'm working on an Excel project. I need a Macro to find duplicate values in Column D and when a duplicate is found, format the font color and fill color for that row, column A thru E. Any ideas?

What I currently have finds the duplicates, but only contionally formats items in that column. I don't want it to be conditional, but here is what I'm using:

Private Sub btnDuplicates_Click()
Selection.FormatConditions(1).DupeUnique = xlDuplicate
With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Font
.Color = -16383844
.TintAndShade = 0
End With
With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.Color = 13551615
.TintAndShade = 0
End With
Selection.FormatConditions(1).StopIfTrue = False
End Sub

Any idea how to do this?

A:Non-Conditional Format: Duplicates Values in 1 Column Format Fill and Font Entire Row

I got rid of the conditional formatting you recorded, because I thought the best way was to loop through the cells in the column and try to find them in the range above and below, and it found them, to format the range of cells from A:E associated with the cells. The problem with using conditional formatting is that you can't loop through cells containing a certain format, because the cell object is not actually formatted. I hope this helps...

Sub Test()
Dim cell As Range, strValue As String
For Each cell In Range("D1:D10")
strValue = cell.Value
Select Case cell.Address
Case Is = "$D$1"
If Not Range(cell.Offset(1, 0), cell.End(xlDown)).Find(strValue) Is Nothing Then GoTo Format
Case Else
If Not Range(cell.Offset(-1, 0), cell.End(xlUp)).Find(strValue) Is Nothing Or _
Not Range(cell.Offset(1, 0), cell.End(xlDown)).Find(strValue) Is Nothing Then GoTo Format
End Select

Exit Sub
' you can obviously change this to suite your needs
With Range(cell.Offset(0, -3), cell.Offset(0, 1)).Font
.Bold = True
.Size = 10
.ColorIndex = 16

I am setting up a spreadsheet for the year and want to use it year over year. I have the cell set up with the date (1/1/2011) with a format of d so that it displays the date as Sat, 1/2/2011 - Sun, etc. Since I want to use this year after year with minimal work and I want to highlight the cells that are equal to Sat and Sun, how would I set up that formula.

I am working on a workbook which contains (at the moment) 13 calculation sheets and 1 master sheet.

The 'mastersheet' contains information such as dates etc which are pulled through to the same places in all the other sheets.

I am looking for a way to hold a formula in a cell on the 'mastersheet' and have the formula, not the result of the calculation, pulled through to the other sheets.

The formula is a simple one - =c24/37*f8

Each of the calculation sheet has the figures in c24 and f8 to perform the calculation there is nothing in those cell references on the 'mastersheet' and I am getting the result 0.00 showing in the cell.

If I use =mastersheet!$c$2 on the other sheets i get the result and not the formula...

A:Conditional formula Excel

I'm trying to improve my skill with Excel and I'm having some trouble with a difficult formula. Basically, it involves two conditions. I think it will be easier if I just write out the logic formulas I'm trying to enter. G12 and F12 are the two cells that determine the value of H12, the cell I'm having trouble with.

If G12<3 and F12<50=.2
If G12<3 and 51<F12<100=.24
If G12<3 and F12>100=.26

If G12>2 and F12<100=.2
If G12>2 and 101<F12<200=.24
If G12>2 and F12>200=.26

So I need a way of expressing all six of those conditions in one formula. This is a variable rate for a timesheet and as you can see, the rate changes depending on whether there are more than 2 people on staff (the G12 value.) I know it would be relatively simple to just enter the rates manually, but I've been wanting to learn more about how Excel works for some time, and just trying to work this out has already taught me a lot so far. At this point, however, I'm stuck.

A few months ago, I was very happy to get some good formula advice here, so I am back for more

For my spreadsheet and stock projections, I would like to achieve the following:

one column shows me the projected stock level based on previous sales -e.g. =AA776-(AS776*$Z$1)

This provides me with a future stock figure. Now I don't need this field to be populated in every row as some items are discontinued and in this case the negative outcome is just providing "noise".

So in addition to the above calculation I wonder if I can use conditional formatting based on text shown in another cell, e.g. if cell I776 shows text, then highlight cell Y776 (or even better delete contents of Y776). Is this possible?

Hi guys i am back
I am using 1 formula (listed below) to help me with calibration reminders but after having a discussion with my boss she would like to have the date show up in color and not wording.

She does not want to see PastDue or Due, only for the date to show up in the colors i have selected using conditional formatting.
Example: Calibration Date Calibration Due Date
8/5/2010 11/3/2010 <----- does not show up using the formula above but she would like to see the date instead.

I have =SUM(S5+92) to automatically change with a calibration date has been entered to show up in calibration due date. =IF(AF5>45, "OK", IF(AF5<=0, "OVERDUE", "DUE")) is another formula that i was playing with to help with calibration reminders. =INDIRECT("AG"&ROW())="Due" is the conditional formatting formula that i used to have the date change colors.

If there is a possible way to have this all together that would be great. Let me know what you guys think i should/can do.

I am trying to find a macro formula using conditional formatting to separate names on an excel worksheet with a black line. This is a worksheet that will have new information put into it every month, approximately 600 new lines of data each time. This is data for employees, so it will have the employee name then by month, up to 12 months of data for each employee and 78 columns for each month. Each month the line will need to be changed because there is one more line of information.

The condition would be in Column E when =$E3<>$E4 (employee number)then a black line would be placed on the bottom of the cell from A:BZ, first to last column of data.

I am using Excel 2003 and I have other conditional formatting in the majority of the cells, so I can't use another conditional format from the tools menu because it will not place two in the same cell. That is why I am looking for a macro that may accomplish the same thing.

If there is another way to accomplish this that would be great. After 2 months of data I have 1200 lines of data.

I tried to attach a sample of the document to this but it would not allow me to.

Good afternoon,

First and foremost, I have over 3000 cells that I need to apply this conditional format to, so if possible I'd like to avoid having to manually update each formula.

Bascially I have a conditional format set up so when the value in cell A="no" or A="n" then all the cell rows that correspond will automatically turn red. I've managed to get this far with no issues. However, I now have to copy this conditional format to the remaining 3000 cells below. I've found that simply copying and pasting the cells does not work becaue the formula is not auto updating so all the cells below are still referencing the inital cell A in my formula.

My Question: Is there a way to copy a conditional format and apply it to cells and have it auto update the referenced cell?

Here is a screen shot to better illustrate my dilema.

Here what my workbook is currently looking like when I simply copy the cells and paste them into cells below. The conditional format formula is still referencing cell A3 and reads as =OR($A$3="no",$A$3="n") for the second section even though it should reference =OR($A$16="no",$A$16="n").

G'Day Guys,
I'm wanting to automate a small spreadsheet I have, to put in a certain monetary value in a cell at the start of the month.

I made up a conditional formula and was able to get it to work, but of course, as soon as the next day ticks over, the formula is no longer valid, and the cell reverts to being empty.

Is there a fairly simple way to put something in place, so that once the condition is met, the value is retained?

My formula might not be ideal, and I'm happy to receive info on a better way to do this.

The conditional formula is: IF(A2=(TODAY()),A3,"") where A2 contains my trigger date, and A3 contains the Dollar value that I want to retain, once the formula gets a true condition.

Hope you can spare some time to offer advice.

Cheers Ron

If Cell Value is equal to 4, the cell should be filled in orange.
If Cell Value is greater then or equal to 5, the cell should be filled in green.

In column E I have numbers and whatever I enter there is automatically added together and the total is displayed in a different cell.

I got all that right, but now I want to do this.

If the a cell is red (or 3) in Column H I want all the corresponding line numbers in Column E to be added together and displayed in a different cell. I want the same rule to apply a cell in orange (4) and a cell in green (5 or greater). Can this be done. If I get this to work then the rest will be easy.

A:Solved: XL07 Conditional Formatting - Duplicate formula

To just compare formulas rather than their result you could use

Trouble is, you'd need something more elaborate to check for duplicates worksheet wide
If you know what your formulas are that are likely duplicates, you could do a find all in find and replace
syntax for searching for whole formula would be:

- you can substitute the formula bit for your formula
You could also do it by eye by going to the formulas tab and selecting "Show Formulas"
Failing that it would be VBA or jiggery pokery with using a second sheet and =formulatext to refer to your original formulas combined with conditional formatting to highlight the dupes ...

if the cell in the column g is = to offline duties or anything else it need to be formated an other specific way.

ive been able to have the formula to work with 1 source like 15 min break in condition 1 and on condition 2 the lunch break. i also been able to get the formula to look at a list but it take the info from the fisrt cell in the list and ignoring the rest of the list.

I would like to have cells with a value of zero, hide the zero, and my plan was to do a conditional format to make the font no color if the cell value = 0. That wouldn't work. The zero remained in black. So, I tried to have the background color be white to hide the zero, but that didn't work either.

The reason I've got this zero showing is that I'm using vlookup to fill the cell. The formula is as follows:

I need to change the cell value from #N/A to zero because the cell is part of a column of numbers that I need to add so I need everything to be numbers.

While the worksheet works fine with the zeros showing, it's not consistent with the way the rest of the sheet looks, and I want it to look good, so if someone can tell me how to fix this I'd really appreciate it.

Also, if it makes any difference, I've got the same =if(isna(vlookup ... statement as data validation for the cell to ensure that no one can type anything in there--I want only data from the vlookup input into the cell.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

In module 1, I have the following code:

Function ColorSum(ColorCell As Range, SumRange As Range) As Variant
Dim Cell As Range
For Each Cell In SumRange
If Cell.Font.ColorIndex = ColorCell.Font.ColorIndex Then
ColorSum = Cell + ColorSum
End If
ColorSum = ColorSum
End Function

In the total cell I have
Where C1 is the reference color (red)
Since colorsum won't recognize colors that were made with conditional formatting
Is there a different formula I can use that will recognize the change of color based on conditional format?

I’m using

For conditional format where row C is the due date and the conditional format formula is in B:5
In B6 it’s
and so on

I am using conditional formatting to look up from list and highlight occurrences in column I. I am using
=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP($I2, Sheet1!$A:$A, 1, 0)), 0, 1) or
=MATCH($I2,Sheet1!A:A,0)>0 . Both only highlight the first instance in the column. How would I get it to highlight the first and second instances for each on the list. I tried with offset but not good with offset. Any help is appreciated.

Is it possible to add conditional formatting to a text box within an Access report.

I want to be able to highlight certain records to the user to highlight the urgency of the item.... e.g. bold and italic formatting.

Does anyone know whether this can be done?

A:Access 97 Reports - Conditional Format

Hi, welcome to TSG.

Yes, this can be done, using the On Format event of the report. This link gives you an example of the code to do it.

There is also a conditional-formatting feature built in to 2000 and 2002.

OK - Before anyone starts to yell about multiple posts, I have searched and viewed all of the posts prior to mine yet I run into the same issue each time.

Here's what I'm looking to do:

IF a cell in Column BK is blank AND a cell in Column N is greater than 4, highlight red.

The Formula I currently have is:

There are two things that are happening:

1) Cells are being highlighted red even though they have a value in Column BK (formula above conditions BK to be blank).
2) Cells are being highlighted red even though they have a value in Column N less than 4 (formula above conditions N to be greater than 3).

Please let me know if you require any additional information. I thank you in advance for your assistance.

A:Solved: Conditional Format with Two Conditions

Although your formula works I prefer a more straightforward approach. Assuming data is in rows 2 to 20 this would be your conditional statement;


You don't say which cells you want to shade. If it is only cols N and BK you'd put this in the "Applies to" box;


If you want to shade everything from N to BK you'd enter this

The important point here, and probably the reason your condition is not working, is that the Applies to and the conditional statement have to be consistent i.e. if your Condition statement cites Row 2 as above then your Applies to must start in Row 2 as well.
