This works if a cell is simply formatted "red" but it does not work if the same cell is colored "red" by virture of conditional formatting. How do I find cells that have been set to color "red" by conditional formatting

This prevents saving the workbook without entering all the data.
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim Row As Integer
Dim Col As Integer
For Row = 1 To 450
For Col = 1 To 50
If Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(Row, Col).Interior.Color = RGB(255, 0, 0) Then
MsgBox "Every cell must have data."
Cancel = True
End If
Next Col
Next Row
End Sub

I am applying conditional formatting on a range of cells. I have 2 conditions to color cells in different colors. Once I enter data, cells get colored corectly according to conditions. What I want is to count how many cells are colored by conditional formatting.

I tried using VBA --- Evaluate formula for each cell and count if TRUE.

I observed, for Excel 2007, as the condition is applied on the range, I expect the formula to be changed dynamically for each cell with appropriate addresses, like for A1, if am referring to cell C1, for A2 it should automatically refer to C2.

And excel takes care of this cells are colored correctly,however, when I try to check the 'FormatCondition' in VBA, I get only one formula for entire range. SO I can not use evaluate to find if the condition is satisfied or not ?

I need to colored the the max and lower value for every row (green for low and red for high) i did it well for first row with conditional formatting but i cant copy for the anothers ones and i dont want to do it row by row (i am so lazy). I did this for first Value and the copy format for the following values in row:

Formula Is =IF(ISBLANK(B5),FALSE,MIN($B$5:$G$5)=B5) (green color) Formula Is =IF(ISBLANK(B5),FALSE,MAX($B$5:$G$5)=B5) (red color)

The reference must be Absolute cause another way results become wrong for another values, but thats the problem cause i cant use it in below rows.

I'm new to 2010 and can't work out the new conditional formatting! I need to be able to enter a letter in A1 and have E1, F1 and G1 automatically show a different letter in each cell (different coloured fonts in each cell as well).

I have large data sheets with blocks of blue-colored cells. I want to surround them with lavender-colored cells. Then I want to run a command to Clear Contents of all lavender-colored cells. Is this possible?

So first I have: Black-text blue-text blue blue Black-text blue-text blue blue Black-text

Then I want: Lavender Blue Blue Blue Lavender Blue Blue.................

I have a workbook with 4 sheets. Each sheet is set up the same. There are 4 columns. The column headings are Title, Item #, 2009 Retail Price, and Price changed from 2008 (in A, B, C and D respectfully).

I need to find all red text in column C and place a 'Y' in column D. If the text in column C is not red I want a 'N' in column D.

I have a spreadsheet that uses VB macros to calculate sums of cells based on the font color of the numbers inside. It used to be fairly easy going through each cell and "classifying" them by color, so that my macros can go ahead and sum the numbers in each respective color's cell... but now I have a huge amount of numbers and would like to automate the process somewhat. Here's an example using the A and B columns:

flight $400 hotel $150 hotel $130 meal $20 meal $15 flight $350

I tried using conditional formatting to automatically change the color of the adjacent cells based on the presence of a keyword such as "flight" or "hotel", but this change is only cosmetic, and doesn't actually change the font color (it is still the default black, hence why my color-summing macros won't work!).

I'm including a sample macro for what I use to color-sum my cells, but what I am looking to automate the color-coding process based on looking for keywords as explained above in my example. Here is one of the working color-summing macros (for red, in this case) if you'd like to use it as a reference:

Function SumRed(SelectedCells As Range) ' Adds the values of the cells where the font colour is red(3). Dim Cell As Object Dim x As Double

A little background on what i am doing. I have a spreadsheet that tracks when i have blown the dust out of our computers. I have set up conditional formatting so that the text turns red after 300 days and the cell turns yellow after 600 days. However, some computers are in high dust environments. I would like the spreadsheet to tell me to blow the dust out of these sooner. see the attached sheet.

I need to run a loop through a column of values (attachment col B) and when it finds a "J" it will apply conditional formatting to a row of 4 cells directly adjacent. The attachment is a theoretical before & after.

Working in Excel 2007. I am using excel for a data log (basically) and want it to format all empty cells in a row yellow if there is data in column A

Basically, If i have a value in A2, I want any empty cell between B2-G2 to be filled in yellow (as an idicator to the inputter that the cell needs to be completed).

there is already conditional formatting on these cells, which i want to maintain for the non-empty cells. I also have "0" as a value, so I couldn't use the basic conditional formatting setting it =0, it highlighted cells with $0.00, which i do not want.

I have attached the sample. I need the cells without the employee or without a boss to highlight a color and i also need the date of certification to highlight if it is more than one year old.

I want to add some colour conditional formatting to the cells in column C, dependent on their variance to the figure in column B. I've got the basic gist of applying the rule to the one single cell, but I'm not sure how to apply it to all the cells in the column. I have tried "dragging" it down, but it then just gives me the variance to the original row.

I'm using conditional formatting where one column of cells is referencing another column of cells. For example, I want cell K2 to highlight if the date entered doesn't match the date in F2. I then want cell K3 to highlight if the date entered doesn't match the date in F3. I want cell K4 to highlight if the date entered doesn't match the date in F4 and so on. I'm not having any issue putting conditional formatting on the cells/row references individually, but when I try to copy the formatting (by using format painter) to save time all of the cells in column K just reference the first cell in column F since the first cell in column K references that F cell but not any other F cell. How do I copy these row by row references between columns so that each reference is unique?

On the attached worksheet I'm looking for the squares in F4:F6 to be coloured corresponding to the colour names in D4:D6 using conditional formatting. I just can't get it to work today.

I have a worksheet which has the years 2001 to 2013 on in row1. I am trying to find a way of highlighting the entire row in green if a specific year contains an "a" (Marlett, tick). The complex part is that I would like the specific year to be determined by an entry input into cell A2 on sheet 2. See Attachment for reference.

I am conditional formatting with fill colour based on specific text- the cells are merged down into a double cell- when the cell changes colour it goes half one colour and half another colour based on the order i have them in the rules- i only have them set to one colour per specific text and the text is all different- so why am i getting this half and half look?

Is it possible to apply conditional formating just on visible filtered cells? If I select (with Ctrl+Shift+Down) all visible (by filter) cells the Rules defined in Conditional formating will also apply to hidden (by filter) cells?

I'd like my conditional formatting to format the range of cells red if the range K2:S2>H2. That is when the range K2:S2 are added together, and if their sum is greater than H2, format cells K2:S2 red.

What I am trying to do, is apply conditional formatting to a range of cells (for example, A2:J2) based on whether the data in one of the cells (D2) contains "Yes" or "No". I would like the entire range of cells to be one color if D2 contains "Yes", and another color if D2 contains "No". If needed, this can be split into 2 different conditional formatting rules.

I need to apply conditional formatting to cells in a column that contain formulas, or more accurately cells that do not. I have a spreadsheet with default values in a column based on a lookup function. I need to know if the user overwrites the default and cannot use UDF's or VBA. I don't think it's possible so my alternative is to include a hidden column that does the same lookup and do the conditional format off of a comparison.

Is there a way I can have excel automatically highlight all cells within A1:A3, B1:B3, C1:C3 if and only if they are greater than the percentage in E5? If so how would I go about doing this?

I have a column that when I put info in it gives me a colour, now on this I have quit a few different labels, eg. AAG201, PRA001, 000010 and so on, now on my rule I have put in that if it is PRA* ,AAG* to be one colour and 0000* to be a colour. (this is working without a problem).

I have tried to get the rest of the row to be the same colour, but cannot get te rules to work, I do not know which rule to use to get this working.

I'm designing a holiday chart in work, and am using conditional formatting to colour cells. The problem is I have more than 3 conditions. Consequently I need to use a macro.
