# Correlation Between Colour Brightness And The Auto Change From Black Text To White Text?

Aug 16, 2013

So I have been playing around with the tab colors on my workbook and am trying to figure out the correlation between color brightness and the auto change from black text to white text. I've noticed that if the Green color value is higher, excel is more likely to use the black text. If Blue is high, white. Green takes precedence over Blue and Red is just kind of in its own world.how excel calculates this?

## Count By Colour (Text) With Other Criteria

Sep 25, 2007

I have used the following Formula to count the number of times that ABC occurs in red text within the listed range, and it works fine

=PERSONAL.XLS!CountByColorText(\$G\$4:\$R\$211,3,TRUE,"ABC")

I now want to count the number of times that (F) occurs in red text within the listed range, the difference being that (F) is always only the last three digits in the cell eg ABC (F)

I have formula in other worksheets that are counting the red and the blue to determine which rider in a team it is. For some reason the time sent to "B Grade" worksheet is ending up in black font. Can anyone explain to me why this is occuring.

Oct 25, 2006

I have big spreadsheets where in A column are 3 letter codes (JFK), in some cases they stand alone in one cell and in other cases there can be more of them in cell separated by / (JFK/LGA/HOU,....). Problem is that some codes are duplicated. I need a macro which would be able to check column A for codes which are duplicated and colour them. I have attached example file, so that is easyier to understand how my data looks and what I would like that macro will do for me.
