How to change Text Color in table, but not Cell Color

hamza_123 Contributor

I want to change text color in a cell in a table based on a certain condition. But when I go to color option, it colors the whole cell and not just the text. 


Can anyone tell me how to do this?

    Hi @Neeti,


    I tried using your piece of code. In my case, I am using a pivot tabl and not a table. Your code seems to color the background in a table, but we are interested in coloring the text only, not the background.

    Do you know what parameter it is?


    Moreover, did you try it for a pivot table or a regular table?

    You can try color rules also, which will either change cell color or row color, based on your selection in color rule window. I have tried this on both pivot and normal table. Also, SUmo table will have more effective color rule implementation. Did you try sumo tables?

    Hi! I am using this to color a cell for a Mega Table:


    CONCAT('<div style="background-color:#69ff96; width: 100%; height:100%; margin:-20px; padding:20px"><a href="#">',CONCAT(`Month Data.ABSENTEEISM`, '%',' ', '(', CASE WHEN `Variance ABSENTEEISM` > 0 THEN '+' ELSE '' END , SUBSTRING(`Variance ABSENTEEISM`, 1, 5),'%', ')'), '</a></div>')


    The problem is that, no matter the number I change in the div, I always see a light blue value. 

    Basically I need to green and red colours :(, so I can paint the value based on a condition.

    AFAIK, Mega tables do not support HTML formatting.  HTML tables do, but they don't have all the functionality of Mega Tables (on the fly sorting or scrolling).
