My active worksheet is TEST, macro 1 imports another excel worksheet, sizes, positions it and renames it as NEW. Macro 2 contains the formating I want to perform on the embeded object NEW before I finish macro 1.
Can anyone help
Here is the code so far
Sub Macro1()
'
' Macro1 Macro
'
Sheets("Test").OLEObjects.Add(Filename:="C:Program Filesdata.xls", Link:=False).Name = "new"
With Sheets("test").OLEObjects("new")
.Left = 100
.Top = 133
.Width = 70
.Height = 35
.ShapeRange.Fill.ForeColor.SchemeColor = 40
.Name = "data 1" & Time
End With
Sheets("Test").Activate
End Sub

Sub Macro2()
'
' Macro2 Macro
' min vals
' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+a
'
' Sub FormatMinimum()
Range("C4:C120,E4:E120,G4:G120,I4:I120,K4:K120,L4:L120").Interior.ColorIndex = 0

Dim MinRange1 As Range, MinRange2 As Range, MinRange3 As Range, MinRange4 As Range, MaxRange5 As Range, MaxRange6 As Range

Dim MinVal1 As Long, MinVal2 As Long, MinVal3 As Long, MinVal4 As Long, MaxVal5 As Long, MaxVal6 As Long

Set MinRange1 = Range("N4:N120")
Set MinRange2 = Range("O4:O120")
Set MinRange3 = Range("P4:P120")
Set MinRange4 = Range("Q4:Q120")
Set MaxRange5 = Range("K4:K120")
Set MaxRange6 = Range("L4:L120")

MinVal1 = Application.WorksheetFunction.Min(MinRange1)
MinRange1.Find(What:=MinVal1, After:=Range("N4"), LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False).Offset(0, -11).Interior.ColorIndex = 44

MinVal2 = Application.WorksheetFunction.Min(MinRange2)
MinRange2.Find(What:=MinVal2, After:=Range("O4"), LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False).Offset(0, -10).Interior.ColorIndex = 44

MinVal3 = Application.WorksheetFunction.Min(MinRange3)
MinRange3.Find(What:=MinVal3, After:=Range("P4"), LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False).Offset(0, -9).Interior.ColorIndex = 44

MinVal4 = Application.WorksheetFunction.Min(MinRange4)
MinRange4.Find(What:=MinVal4, After:=Range("Q4"), LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False).Offset(0, -8).Interior.ColorIndex = 44

MaxVal5 = Application.WorksheetFunction.Max(MaxRange5)
MaxRange5.Find(What:=MaxVal5, After:=Range("K4"), LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False).Interior.ColorIndex = 4

MaxVal6 = Application.WorksheetFunction.Max(MaxRange6)
MaxRange6.Find(What:=MaxVal6, After:=Range("L4"), LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False).Interior.ColorIndex = 3

Rows("1:1").Delete Shift:=xlUp
Range("A1:Q2").Interior.ColorIndex = 37
Range("A1:B20").Interior.ColorIndex = 37
Range("C2:M2").Interior.ColorIndex = 35
Columns("N:Q").Delete
Columns("A:B").EntireColumn.AutoFit
Range("A1").Select

End Sub

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).
