Excel formatting....

By tmalo627 ·
Hello all,

I am using Excel 2007. I have been asked to make a spreadsheet with what projects I am currently working on. This table will have a status column to show how far along on each project I am. I would like to be able to format the background color of an entire row based on the status column. So if I enter "complete" into the status column the entire row changes to green, or "in progress" to yellow, etc.

Can anyone help?

If you only want three colours

Excel's "Conditional Formatting" function - which you'll find in the "Format" menu - will change the row colour for up to three entries.

Otherwise, you'll need a bit of VBA.

How many colours do you want?

I just had to make sure that the correct range of cells was entered in the appropriate box in the formulas rule.

Thank you
