Conditional Formatting in Excel for Rows

My main objective is to sum up the numbers in column F only when the conditional formatting in column B returns TRUE. However, I need to first determine whether the conditional formatting is true or not. To accomplish this, you can place the following code in the worksheet’s code module:
And in a standard code module, you can place the following code:

You are asking about how to apply a highlight to the cells in columns A:D based on whether the corresponding value in column K is “Closed” or not.

Question:

Which Excel formulas can I utilize as a
conditional formatting
to attain the desired outcome?

  • Apply colors to the
    entire row
    until there is a change in the values in column B.
  • Avoid coloring the rows until the value in column B changes once more.
  • Subsequently, proceed to color the entire rows until there is another change in the value of column B.
  • And so on.

For this text example, any row starting with X should have color, while those starting with O should not.

Solution 1:

To apply conditional formatting, select the entire range of data (e.g. A2:D1000) when your data begins in row 2 with a header row in row 1.


=MOD(SUM(($B$1:$B1<>$B$2:$B2)+0),2)

If your data starts at row 1, this formula should be applicable.


=MOD(ROUND(SUM(1/COUNTIF($B$1:$B1,$B$1:$B1)),0),2)


Solution 2:


If your trigger column adheres to a sequential pattern without any number omissions, a solution like this may be effective.

=ROUND(A2/2,0)*2<>A2
