Is there a way to count the number of cells formatted to a particular colour?
 

Excel Facts

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

This one counts red cells in range a1:a10 using For Next loop. You get the idea . . .

Sub CountTheColors()
RedCells = 0
For N = 1 To 10
CellColor = Range("A" & N).Interior.ColorIndex
If CellColor = 3 Then
RedCells = RedCells + 1
End If
Next N
MsgBox "Number of red cells in the first 10 cells of column A: " & RedCells
End Sub

Thanks for that - still new to the forum - I'll try the search next time. In the meantime I'll give it a whirl.
