Is it possible to count the number of coloured or formatted cells?

I am creating a comparison chart, which will compare different values in a matrix

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2

10 10 10
16 17 18

11 11
17 18

12
18


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,

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 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,
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.

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 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




Hello

I used Conditional Formatting to highlight cells containing specific values (i.e. less than, between, etc...). I now need to show a count of how many cells are green, red, yellow, etc...

I have been reading about having to create a User Defined Function using VBA, but after various tests, I can only achieve the desired results if I manually highlighted the cells (i.e. highlighted the cell and filled it with colour).

How can I count the cells which were highlighted using Conditional Formatting?

I am using Excel 2007.

Thanks,
Steph

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
Jo


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.


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,

I need to count say green coloured cells in one row. Please suggest how to do it.

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

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.
