In a pivot table with a simple layout, you can select a group of cells, and apply a conditional formatting rule.
In this example, the Date field is in the Rows area, Territory is in the Columns area and Sales Amount is in the Values area.
We want to highlight the sales amounts that are above average.
Note: If you’ve used a formula in the rule that applies the conditional formatting, you might have to adjust relative and absolute references in the formula after pasting the conditional format.
For more information, see Switch between relative, absolute, and mixed references.
I have created a pivot table and added conditional formatting to the cells that encompass the pivot table.
On updating the pivot table, or even filtering, all the conditional formatting is lost. Thanks Stu For data fields, I specify a rule for each and specify it should apply to all cells for that field.
I frequently use Excel’s Pivot Table functionality to examine the relationships between variables.
While it is a common tool in the analyst’s toolbox I don’t like the default visualization options.
For other fields, I actually apply the CF to the entire column of the sheet and that seems to work. The method described seems to work but cannot be paired with a formula to determine which cells to format.
But before editing, i will show you how to reference this file into you desired view: You should go to your view and click on site settings menu and then edit page: Now you have to select the view webpart and click on Edit Web Part After that you insert the link to your file (~site/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/cond_formatting.js) inside the miscelanous area at JS-Link Now we can start with coding:) Before you read on: Yes you have to do that for all views, but you can do that by using Powershell for example. In this function i call define the template parameters, like fields and which function each field should use and i define how the highlighting row should be handled by the On Post Render method.
