I have 4 cells. B2 is R, C2 is G, D2 is B, those represent the color palate. Under those cells are cells B3,C3,D3 that I've data restricted to numbers between 0-255. I want cell E3 to have the color reflected by the numbers I've entered in the first three cells. If I change the numbers in those cells I want the color of cell E3 to change to. I've included an image of what I'm attempting. I know it involves VBA but I don't know were to start or even where to start looking.
