Q: Solved: Excel 2007: conditional format when date displayed as format d

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 tried the basic =A1="Sat" and without quotes but it just returns #NAME. I know working with dates in formulas is different but can't figure out what I need to use.

My question is how can i make row three work for the rest of the rows?

A3:A10000 is a number from 1-5
B:M is just ramdom information that i will be Pasting in


A3 has a number from 1-5. Cell has CF so that if 1-5 is entered that number will be a certain color.
Once number is in A3 the other cells B3:M3 will change that same color.

Now if i put any of the numbers 1-5 the cells B3:M3 will change what ever color number is in A3.

With that being said if i take and highlight B3:M3 and take the little small box down at the bottom right hand of the last cell, click and drag down to duplicate the CF, all the cells now refer to A3.

I would like for Each row from A3:A10000 to be able to put the number 1-5 and all the cells with that row B:M to change to the same color.

I have row 3 set up like i want. For example just change the number in A3 from 1 through 5 and you will see what im talking about.

Now i can go in and change the CF for each row but i dont have that kinda time to go from A3:A10000

If anyone can help, Thanks in advance.

I have a user who is trying to update an Excel spreadsheet somebody sent them. In one cell, there is a reference to the date located in another cell. However, the way it is formatted, the date in the cell displays as just a number instead of the date ("September 22, 2010" displays in the 2nd cell as "40443".

In the second cell, there is some text along with the formula referencing the original cell containing the date. In the formula bar, it looks like this: ...Los Angeles, California 90013, on "&AP29&"

Yet in the spreadsheet, it displays like this: ...Los Angeles, California 90013, on 40443

In the original/refenced cell (AP29), the text entered into the cell is 9/22/2010, and is formatted to display as September 22, 2010.

Any idea how to correct the formula to display the date correctly?

Thanks a bunch.

A:Solved: Date format - Excel 2007

Hi Traci.

It's because the underlying value of the date is a number, which is how Excel interprets it no matter how it's formatted. To change it to display the date, you have to tell it it's a date within the formula. Try this:

...Los Angeles, California 90013, on "&TEXT(AP29,"m/dd/yy")&"

Without seeing the whole formula in the second cell I'm not quite sure about the positioning of the ampersands and quotes, but play around with it a little. Let me know if it doesn't work.

I have a pivot table in Excel 2007 with grouped data based on the year and the quarter, so the date info looks like this:

Years Date
2009 Qtr1
2010 Qtr1
2011 Qtr1
(I know it's not really code but I didn't know how else to maintain the columns)
I have a chart based on this data but I need the dates (on the horizontal axis) to appear in a very specific format of Q109, Q209 and so on. Is there a way I can either alter what's in the pivot table to achieve this, could I use this data combined with the TEXT function somewhere else on my worksheet, or is there another workaround?

My source data is by month only and I'm using the pivot table to calculate the quarterly averages for me.

I have conditional format in row 5, as follows

Format is for No colour
Condition 2
=ISNUMBER(FIND("G",numForm)) and dragged across
Format is for Light green if condition met

Cell Format is set at General

I have two problems
1. Cell F5 produces 4 decimal places
2. If I change Cell format to Number , with 2 decimal places Conditional format of light green does not occur.

Is there a way to have a number cell format (custom or otherwise)to two decimal places and a conditional format that leaves the light green if a number is in F5. If no number cell to remain clear.

I have a spreadsheet that shows all of the upcoming events at my work (I've attached a very basic example of the way the spreadsheet is set out).

When an event passes, I'd like the spreadsheet to automatically change the formatting of the rows that contain events that have already passed.

For example, today being 14.12.09, an event for yesterday (13.12.09) would be highlighted in red to show that the day has passed.

If anyone can provide any detail on how to achieve this, I would greatly appreciate it.

I have an elaborate Excel file (a weight reduction program) that includes a cell that shows the first day of a month (dd-mm-yy). Based upon which month of the year is in that cell, I want to make an IF statement that uses the number of days in that month (28,30 or 31 days). If I copy that cell and format it as a DATE per the mm format, it just prints the first letter of that month. Therefore, if there was a "J" in that second cell, the IF statement would not know if it was Jan (31 days), June (30 days) or July (31 days).

Anyone have any ideas?

If the column is actually a date (not text) then highlight the column and go to Format, Cells. Select the Number tab and then click on the Date format. A list of formatting options will appear and you should find what you want.
If it doesn't work, do the same thing and select Number. If you actually have dates typed in, then 20100410 would show as 40278.00 - if it is text, it will show as 20100410.00.

A:(Solved) Excel date format wrong

In my 4 years in customer services for a well known computer company, I have never seen that before.

Microsoft Excel does not control the dates nor the settings, ie currency etc. Which version are you using?

Try using another Microsoft program like Word to see if you have the same problem, if not, then you would need to speak to Microsoft in New Zealand.

Also, double check to see under Regional Settings in Control Panel, in regional settings tab, make sure the setting is English (New Zealand), and press apply (if it is not greyed out. If it asks you to restart, press no and go to the Currency and Date tabs to make sure that the setings are for New Zealand.

If that fails, then you can *force* the machine to your own custom settings, by changing the values.

If all else fails, then it could be Windows itself.

Please email me to let me knowhow you got on.

I have a conditional format set to highlight a range of dates, yellow, on a calendar from start date to due date. The formula is: =AND(I$5>=$D6,I$5<=$E6). I would like to have the yellow blocks change to green when the project is completed. The date completed would be in cell F6.

This site looks great...thought I saw question a while back when I googled here... After reading thru many programming questions here, I realize I know lots less than I thought! ha. Think its a simple Excel formatting, but its been a while.

I've downloaded UK bank files to Excel, and need to change all dates to US format (12/6/2012 to 6/12/2012), with their corresponding text & numbers columns, and then sort top to bottom (oldest to newest), rather than how they came in (newest to oldest) to complete 2 yr. accounting summary. Excel 2007 on Windows 7 laptop.

Thanks much, guys! Jillian

I've included a sample of the columns from Excel sheet. As you can see, there are 5 columns, (oops maybe it won't show as cols) so all corresponding info has to move with the date, when I sort earliest to latest, after changing format for the 2 yrs I have to do. The format options given did not work, even tho' it IS indate format, not text, but when importing, it was already imported as US, not UK. Need to change. Not sure how to set that up, and have all info follow on corresponding cols. Thanks.

With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Font
.Color = -16383844
.TintAndShade = 0

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
End With

Hi, I've got something that keeps going wrong.\

But now the issue:

The person on the sheet has as starting date 01-03-2012 (in Dutch format this March 1, 2012) and ends August 2012

On my system and at work The date pickers selects it correctly, show is and the userfrom shows it as 01-03-2012 but when I press 'Vastleggen" (Commit) the date is saved as 03-01-2012 which in Dutch January 3, 2012 when I double click again the datpicker shows the default data as January 3, 2012.

What has to be clear for the use tis that he she has to enter the date as he knows ir should be

If they are used to entering day month year they will have to do that even though the format says different.

So for instance. The actual cell value that is typed into the cell is 12/23/2013 but the client put in a custom format of d-mmm so it displays as 23-Dec and that is how it gets exported to the tab delimited file. I need the cell to export to the tab delimited file as 12/23/2013.

So I tried this code to change the Date Formatting but this did not work.

If IsDate(rCell.Value) Then
rCell.Value = DateValue(rCell.Value)
End If
Anyone else got any ideas.

Hi again all,

Need a little help and this time I think it is possible I just lack the computer know how to pull it off.

I have attached a summary spreadsheet so I can reference as I go but I will give a little back story first. I want to create a spreadsheet that I can view and at a glance see who is traveling on a particular date and when they are due back. The problem is that the personnel will travel several times a year and I don't want to just create a giant spreadsheet with loads of dates.

Cell A3 is just the persons name and serves as no consequence for what I am asking.

In cell B3 and C3 I want to be able to display when the person is NEXT traveling and when that person is NEXT due back. Now this is the tricky part, I want this to automatically change the value of the cells after the date has passed.

In E and F I have put example dates. So lets say the 10th of July passes I would like the Outbound to change to 20th of Aug, and so forth. The same would apply for the inbound.

My thoughts were I could just dump all the dates at the bottom of the spreadsheet off the page break and have the text white so it is not visable and the sheet will be neat and tidy. There will be several people to track and I dont like clutter.

If anyone is particularly clever, could I even host all the dates for cells B3 and C3 on sheet 2 of the spreadsheet??

Once again, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & Regards

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.

Iím trying to keep a running total of bill payments.

Iím using conditional format to change the color of the payment to red
on the day itís due and keep it that color till the end of the month
Each month I will start a new sheet

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?

Iím using

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

I live in the United Kingdon and use dates in the short date format†dd/mm/yyyy. I have an application that works perfectly with Windows XP and Windows Vista when you change the date format on a machine in the "Regional and Language Options" of the "Control Panel" the dates display properly in the application.The application was developed with Delphi 2009, I believe, in case†this makes any difference.When run under Windows 7 all the date fields show up in US format (mm/dd/yyyy) even though all the regional settings, etc. have been set correctly on the machine. Furthermore, running the application in either the Windows XP or Windows Vista emulations does not cure the problem.Is there a known issue about this in Windows 7 or/and does anyone have any ideas?Thank you

A:Date Format Question (reverts to US date format)


Thank you for your update.

Considering the issue is related to application developing, it is still recommended that you contact Delphi support or our MSDN forum for further investigation. This should be more efficient.

Thanks again. Nicholas Li - MSFT

Hi all

I created an Excel spread sheet that the user has to input among other things many dates. The spread sheet that I created has many users doing their share of inputting data. The problem is not the formatting of the dates, but how the date is entered into a cell. I have formulas that use the dates to calculate the days between dates and other date type functions. For example, if someone enters Jan. 15, 2006, the date is entered as a text and the formulas return a #Value. I have seen many types of date entries that return a #Value in many cells.

Is there a way that I can warn the user that he or she has entered the date in the wrong format in a MsgBox?? If someone out there has a macro that can accomplish one of the above, that would save me many headaches. The dates are in specific columns (J and K)and are not random throughout the spreadsheet.

Thanks again,

You can use Data > Validation to warn them (although if they copy/paste, that won't retain what you want).

Perhaps the best is to use a UserForm which can control input and formatting. That way they can not change it even after they enter the data.

Hi all,

I would like to conditionally format the attached spreadsheet so that each alternating week is shaded on whole set of rows.

Also with our roster the week runs Thurs to Wed.

I've looked quite a bit into conditional formatting now. But this one has me stumped.
