In each section, one of the numbers will be chosen and either coloured or made bold. Then what I want to do is count all the cells with a number 1 in it which are highlighted or bold (there will be other cells with a number one in it, which are not to be highlighted

The same will be applied to number 2 - 18

Can it be done?

I would really appreciate your help

Thank you

Hi,

Please see the attached file

Can anybody tell me how to count coloured cells in excel,

For example, I have numbers with red , I want to count

how many Red coloured cells are in each line.

thanks

I am after some help. I have a spreadsheet with around 1 million rows of data. I need to be able to count the number of cells in a particular column which contain red text.

I have tried the CELL function, but this can only identify cells which are coloured, and not text which is coloured within a cell.

Any help would be gratefully received.

Many thanks

This is a two part question.

I have a column in excel with a combination of different coloured cells. Could anyone advise on a formula to total the number of coloured cells at the bottom of the column?

If I have a recurring word appearing every few cells, can any one suggest a formula to count these?

Any help of advice would be very much appreciated.

Hi,

I`m trying to work out how to have a the cell directly below a cell with data in it coloured and also a certain number of cells below.

So if there is something in B2, I want B2-B3 coloured, if there is something in E20, E21-26 need to be coloured.

The cells already have some conditional formatting on them for something else that cant be changed either, and needs to over-ride this. So if in the second example E23 has data, that cell cant be coloured but the 5 cells below that will be etc.

The number of cells to vertically be coloured will range from 1 to ~60

Have attached image of example, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

I am trying to find out how I can count the number of blank cells (no colour) within a column.

My colleague has a staff spreadsheet whereby those staff on leave are coloured red, those sick are coloured blue etc etc.

The staff actually available are not coloured, and she needs to be able to count them in a fast fashion. Counting them manually is very time consuming as there are lots of them.

Hope someone can help

Many thanks in advance..

Hi,

Can anybody tell me how to count coloured cells in excel,

For example, I have numbers with red and green colour, I just want to count

how many Red coloured cells are there and how many green coloured cells are there?

Is it possible to do a count of cells that have been coloured red through meeting a conditional formats criteria? The colour is not cell fill colour, but actual cell entry has been coloured red.

I am working on a pivot table with approx. 10,000 rows and 12 columns across.

I have coloured some of the cells red.

I have an excel worksheet in which a column contains some cells in which the

monetary values are coloured blue.

Is there some function I could use to sum only these coloured values ?

I have been told to use the SUMIF function , but I am unsure how to use it

with respect to coloured fonts.

Suggestions most welcome.

Regards

Hi,

I've got a table which i need to count automatically the number of varying coloured cells.

Could anyone tell me if this is possible for me to say 'count the number of green squares or count the number of red and green squares'

Thanks

Hi,

Wondering if anyone could help me with a formula for the following:

I have a spreadsheet that contains various different coloured cells,

I need to be able to:

1. count the number of cells in a given range that are coloured a certain colour.

2. show the answer of a sum involving the above, i.e in range D1:D:5 the sum of 10 + blue cells, minus yellow cells = 12

eg.

A
B
C
D
1
2
3
4
5
Sum of 10 (plus blue cells minus yellow cells in range D:1 to D:5) should equal 12

Thanks

Not sure if this is possible but if it is then I know I am in the right place.

Say I have 5 staff and each of them a represented by a Cell coloured I want to be able to add up the various cell colours and then multiply them by the value in the cell. i.e if Cell A1 is coloured Green and has a value of 0.3 and cell B2 is coloured Green and has a value of 0.9 then I want the sum to equal Green = 2 and combined value = 1.2

I hope this makes sense.

Hi all,

Using MS Excel 2003, I want to create a chart that has coloured horizontal bands as a background with the data lines on top of these bands.

E.g. If all of my y-axis values will be in the range 0-30, I'd like to split the background into 3 horizontal stripes such that:

0 <=10 is coloured gold

10<=20 is coloured silver

20<=30 is coloured bronze

On top of these stripes are my actual data lines.

It seems like it should be possible, but I'm just too dense to figure it out. Any ideas please?

Thanks.

I would like to count how many coloured cells exists in a range:

for example 5 blue, 2 red, 3 yellow,...

Is there any function for this?

Thanks in advance

Hi all

I have a sheet with colour coded cells and I need a macro that counts the number of rows with coloured cells.

I've tried the following code but I always get a count of 0 which isn't right.

Code:

Sub Count_Coloured_Cells()
Sheets("Issues").Select
Dim i, c
Dim LastRow As Long
i = 1
c = 0
LastRow = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row
Do While i < LastRow + 1
If Rows(1 + i & ":" & 1 + i).Interior.ColorIndex xlNone Then
c = c + 1
End If
i = i + 1
Loop
MsgBox (c)
End Sub

Remember, it's the number of rows I need to count (i.e. one row may have several colour coded cells but I only need to count it once).

Thanks in advance

Is there a formula I can use to count how many cells are coloured a particular colour ( let's say green ) between ( let's say ) D3 and Z3

Hi folks,

I'm trying to get my excel spreadsheet to look at column A which has a day count:

Day1

Day2

Day3

...etc...

If the day is an odd number then I would like that row to be coloured with a blue background, if it is an even number then I would like it to be coloured with a yellow background.

Does anyone know how I can do this? Ideally I would like it so the page does this automatically without the need to press a button to run a macro. Again, not sure if I can do this. Please help,

Thanks

G'Day All,

Have made a Christmas booking sheet with day(dates) columns and kennel rows.

I then enter the clients name and colour code the the block of the booking.

What I am tring to do now is count the number of kennels that have been coloured, for each day.

Is there a formula that includes the colour.

Tks

Hi,

I have had a look through some searches and I can't find any that have answered this question before so would appreciate it if someone could assist.

I have a few cells on a sheet which will be coloured red. They won't always be the same cell references, but they will always be the same colour.

I was wondering if there was some VBA code somewhere which would allow me to put in cell D1 the total amount of the coloured cells.

Please, if you need more info, just ask'

Kind Regards

Jamie

Hi All
