Dynamic Color Change in cells

Hi,
I have attached the excel where I have VB code to change the color based on user events. However, I am not getting exactly what I require.

1. Based on the user selection in drop down, the color of that cell should change. This is happening. However I need to have this applied to only those few rows and not all the rows as shown

2. When the selection makes the color light (say yellow), then the color of the text only in that box has to change to Black.

Any help is appreciated

Thanks and Regards
Aravind

How do I get the colors to change automatically when I use a drop down list.
Per say here is what I am trying to do

If a certain "word" is used from the drop down list I want the background of
that cell to change its color to "green." And if later I change the "word" to
another from the drop down list, it will change it's color to a specified
color.

The drop down list that I use was created from cells that have the colors
already in the "word", but I do not know how to make the list show the colors
so it puts the word & color automatically in the drop down list to the cell
with the drop down (if that makes any sense).

If there is a way, please spell it out simple enough for me to understand,
as I don't know fully the capabilities of formulas or vba.

is, it possible to change color background in cell comment? thanks

I have a workbook in excel 2003 with two sheets. Cell references on the
second sheet refer to the first sheet ='CODE SHEET'!I102 when I change text
color in cell I102 on the code sheet how do I get the color to automatically
change on the second sheet.

I know of

Private Sub Workbook_SheetSelectionChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)

but I would like to expand this idea to detect any change in cell selection across all open workbooks.

Thanks!

Is it possible to get a cell to change color based on values in other cells

ie...A1 blue if C1 is greater than C2, C3, C4
or A1 red if C2 > C1, C3, C4
or A1 green if C3 > C1, C2, C4
or A1 yellow if C4 > C1, C2, C3

Hello All,

I've searched around the forum for an answer to my spreadsheet problem but have no luck. Hopefully you can help me with this.

I have a spreadsheet that contains the 5 digit numbers in the rows and the columns respecstively. I'd like a formular or macro to change font color for each cell. If the combined value of the 5 rows are greater or less than the combined range 87030 and 87200, the 5 cells will be changed to Red.

If:

A B C D E (Condition)
8 7 0 3 0 = 87030 ---> Nothing change in cells A1, B1, C1, D1 and E1
8 7 2 0 0 = 87200 ---> Nothing change in cells A2, B2, C2, D2 and E2
8 7 0 2 0 < 87030 ---> Change font color to Red in cells A3, B3, C3, D3 and E3
8 7 2 0 4 > 87200 ---> Change font color to Red in columns A4, B4, C4, D4 and E4

Each cell contains only 1 digit such as above

How would I do that. I'm using Excel 2003. Your help is really appreciated. Many thanks

How do i Make the color of the cell change depending on a figure in another
cell on Excel?

Hi guys,

I have a macro running that tracks the changes of the 3 previous changes and displays comments in the cell it was changed in.

I noticed that it didn't detect if the cell color changed. I was dissappointed because I need it to detect that as well. Do you guys know how I can detect that event? I need it to display a comment when cell color changes.

Thanks,

I need a cell to change color if the value inside the cell reaches 50 or
higher.either text or cell shade. just so it catches the users attention.
im running excel 2000. and i have this currently in the cell that i want to
aplly this to:
=HLOOKUP(D20,'Hidden Data'!GZ10:HB11,2,0)*MAX(15,E20)

I have completed a macro to note the changes in cell values, thanks with everyones help here. However, it would also be more useful if I could note changes in Interior colors of the cells, and certain actions of the cells selected(pasted, copied..etc). Is it possible to track a cell after its interior color has been changed? Thanks

Hi All,

I have got an requirement where in based on the colours of the three consecutive adjacent cells in a row; the four cell should get a BG color.

Ex:-If the colors of the cells A11,B11,C11 are green; then the color of the cell D11 should automatically be set to green. In similar way I have got around 4 combinations; say if any two cells are green and the other is red (Or) if any two cells are red and other is green; the colors would be Light yellow and Dark yellow resp. And if all 3 preceding cells are red; then the fourth cell should be red.

I tried using the Cellcolor() User defined function; am able to get values of Green(Sea Green-this is the one I am using),Red as 50,3 resp. But when I am trying to do an logical relationship to get the conditional formatting done on the fourth column("D" Column); its not working...Can someone help me on from here??

A better and easier solution than this would always be helpful.

Thanks in advance for your help.

All,
Thanks for everyone sharing their knowledge - I have learned SO much...! Now... taking the first step - admitting you have a problem...!

I'm running thru a Range - and for each change in value - inserting a new row. OK - no problem.

However, I would like this newly inserted row to be formatted in some way, then have the routine continue on it's merry way until finding another row that needs to be inserted.

For example - maybe I want to change the row height, or change the Interior color from Columns A thru Z for example - or any other formatting desired.

I've reached my limit on trying to accomplish this - so now reaching out...!!!

small section of relevent code:
If CILineNameRange.Cells(x, 1).Offset(-1, 0).Value CILineNameRange.Cells(x, 1).Value Then

CILineNameRange.Cells(x, 1).EntireRow.Insert shift:=xlDown

End If

' the above inserts a row - but I would like to insert a colored row from say... colums A thru Z,
' and maybe change the row height, or whatever other formatting desired
' - such as
' .ColorIndex = 15
' .Pattern = xlSolid
' .RowHeight = 4.00

Many thanks in advance!

I have a calculation in cell A1, simple E7-F7. I want this cell to
change to a red fill color when the number is negative, but I do not
want the negative number to be displayed just the cell color to change.
Any way to do this easily?

Is it possible to change the color of just one number or word in a formula? I
have been reading and trying some of these conditional formatting posts, but
so far, no luck for what I am trying to do... For instance: =132+130+58 (and
I only want 130 to be red and the rest black).

Group,
Have a spreadsheet with several hundred rows. I'm running Windows XP and Excel 2007. Have data in columns A thru I. In column D I have Conditional Formatting that changes each cells color in D to either Green, Yellow or Red. How can VBA delete an entire row if the cell in column D is Red? When I run the macro, any row with red in its D column cell will be deleted.

What formula do i use if i want the text in cell A1 to change to red if any entry is made in cell B1.

thanks in advance

Without using macros, I would like to be able to capture in a cell (any cell) the first time a number changes in another cell. I have a spreadsheet that is linked to another program that displays stock prices. Before the market opens, the number in the cell is 0. Once the market opens the prices then begin to change as the bid price of the stock changes. What I want to do is to be able to capture the first price above 0 at the market open. I'm using Excel 2000.

Thanks,
Ron

Two things:

resolved: 1. I like to be able to change the cell's background color (yellow) if the cell =0 and have no color if the cell is >0.....contents will be $.

2. if the cell is 7/2010 the cell next to it would read 7 or 8/2011 and 8, etc. and the 7 or 8 has a number value so I can divide other cells by it.

Example: 14 / 7 (7/2011) or 24 / 8 (8/2011).

Thanks.

Edited: I figured out how to be #1.

Good Afternoon,

I would like to program my check box to uncheck on any changes in Cell C4.
(C4 is part of a merged cell)

Any ideas would be appreciated...

Hi, I'm sure this is very easy but I just can't seem to get my head around it

I have data in cells j3 and j4 but when the data changes in j3 I'd like j4 to be cleared of it's contents.

Any help is much appreciated.

Hello,

I have a range of cells that I want to watch for a change in contents. If any cell in the range has a change in contents I want to launch a MessageBox that asks if they wish the new value to be entered automatically in all of the other cells in the range.

Example:
Range = B8:M9

User changes F8 from "empty" to 38. MessageBox should launch asking if they want 38 to be entered into all of the cells in the range. Upon answering yes new contents of F8 should be inserted into the rest of the range.

Any help would be much appreciated.
