Hi,

I have problem with this formula:

Code:
Sub Cell_color()Dim MyWorkbook As Workbook
Dim Matrix As Worksheet
Dim Help As Worksheet
Dim Data As Worksheet


Set MyWorkbook = ActiveWorkbook
Set Matrix = MyWorkbook.Sheets("Matrix")
Set Data = MyWorkbook.Sheets("Data")
Set Help = MyWorkbook.Sheets("Help")


    If Data.Range("B3:B22").Value = Help.Range("B2").Value Then
        Matrix.Range("B2:U2").Interior.ColorIndex = 37
        Else
        Matrix.Range("B2:U2").Interior.ColorIndex = 78
    End If
End Sub

It's all I got so far.

What I want is macro which checks if cell ranges (B3:B22)(E3:E22)(H3:H22)(K3:K22)(N3:N16)(Q3:Q13)(U3:U13) in sheet "Data" contains one of value from B2 in sheet "Help" and then colors cell range in sheet "Matrix" with wanted colors.

I hope it's clear enough for you all.

The entire data range does not have a value.
This code check each cell in the specified range for the target value
Code:
Option Explicit

Sub Cell_color()

    Dim MyWorkbook As Workbook
    Dim Matrix As Worksheet
    Dim Help As Worksheet
    Dim Data As Worksheet
    Dim rngCell As Range
    Dim bMatch As Boolean
    
    Set MyWorkbook = ActiveWorkbook
    Set Matrix = MyWorkbook.Sheets("Matrix")
    Set Data = MyWorkbook.Sheets("Data")
    Set Help = MyWorkbook.Sheets("Help")

    For Each rngCell In Data.Range("B3:B22,E3:E22,H3:H22,K3:K22,N3:N16,Q3:Q13,U3:U13")
        If rngCell.Value = Help.Range("B2").Value Then
            bMatch = True
            Exit For
        End If
    Next
    If bMatch Then
        Matrix.Range("B2:U2").Interior.ColorIndex = 37
        Else
        Matrix.Range("B2:U2").Interior.ColorIndex = 78
    End If
    
    Set Matrix = Nothing
    Set Data = Nothing
    Set Help = Nothing
    Set MyWorkbook = Nothing
    
End Sub

Thanks for your time and reply, it works now. I didn't exactly precise my problem. I need code to check if data range from DATA sheet maches data from HELP sheet. If yes then color cells in MATRIX sheet with specified colors for example when data is TO DO then color cells with yellow; attention would be red etc.
