Introduction

In this article I am going to explain about how to apply conditional formatting to a range of data in Microsoft Excel 2010. For this we use Excel.DisplayFormat Method. Using this method we can apply conditional formatting to a range of data.

Microsoft Office 2010 offer some powerful tools, using this tools you can create application. Using Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) you can create your own application according to your need. These application can performer some specific task.

For creating application we can use

  • VBA host of Excel 2010
  • VBA host of PowerPoint 2010
  • VBA host of Word 2010

NOTE : OneNote 2010 is not a VBA host.

Code that we use in this application are given below

Sub TestDisplayFormat() 

    Range("A1").Value = -900
    Range("A2").Value = -700
    Dim rng As Range
    rng = Range("A1:A2")
    
' Set up the conditional formatting:
    rng.FormatConditions.Add(Type:=xlCellValue, Operator:=xlLess, Formula1:="=0")
    With rng.FormatConditions(1)
        With .Font
            .Bold = 
True
            .Italic = True
            .Color = vbRed
        End 
With
        With .Borders
            .LineStyle = xlContinuous
            .Weight = xlThin
        End 
With
        With .Interior
            .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
            .Color = vbYellow
        End 
With
    End With
    CompareRangeAndDisplayFormat(Range("A1"))
    CompareRangeAndDisplayFormat(Range("A2"))

End Sub
Private Sub CompareRangeAndDisplayFormat(rng As Range)

    ' Show off the differences in properties that have been changed
    ' by conditional formatting:
    Debug.Print()
    Debug.Print(rng.Address & "======")
    Debug.Print()
    Debug.Print(" rng.Interior.Color: " & rng.Interior.Color)
    Debug.Print(" rng.DisplayFormat.Interior.Color: " & rng.DisplayFormat.Interior.Color)
    Debug.Print()
    Debug.Print(" rng.Font.Color: " & rng.Font.Color)
    Debug.Print(" rng.DisplayFormat.Font.Color: " & rng.DisplayFormat.Font.Color)
    Debug.Print()
    Debug.Print(" rng.Font.Italic: " & rng.Font.Italic)
    Debug.Print(" rng.DisplayFormat.Font.Italic: " & rng.DisplayFormat.Font.Italic)
    Debug.Print()
    Debug.Print(" rng.Font.Color: " & rng.Font.Color)
    Debug.Print(" rng.DisplayFormat.Font.Color: " & rng.DisplayFormat.Font.Color)
    Debug.Print()
    Debug.Print(" rng.Borders.LineStyle: " & rng.Borders.LineStyle)
    Debug.Print(" rng.DisplayFormat.Borders.LineStyle: " & rng.DisplayFormat.Borders.LineStyle)

End Sub
