Hello.
I need some help.
I have a test with 850 questions. Each row consists of starting from row 3 /number of the question (A3), the question itself(B3), Answer 1(C3),Answer 2(D3), Answer 3(E3), Answer 4(F3), Correct answer (G3).
The right answer among all 4 available answers is colored in BRG(0.0.255) Blue.
If the right answer is Answer 3/ colored in BRG(0.0.255) Blue/ - to appear 3 in Correct answer column G3.
If the right answer is Answer 4/ colored in BRG(0.0.255) Blue/ - to appear 4 in Correct answer column G3.
So I can apply this condition to all 850 questions.

Thank to all.

Thanks for that, not sure whether it's something to do with the conversion from pdf, or the unicode characters, but try this
VBA Code:
Sub stillg()
   Dim r As Long, c As Long, i As Long
   Dim Flg As Boolean
   
   For r = 3 To Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
      Flg = False
      For c = 3 To 6
         For i = 1 To Len(Cells(r, c))
            If Cells(r, c).Characters(i, 1).Font.Color = vbBlue Then
               Range("G" & r).Value = c - 2
               Flg = True
               Exit For
            End If
         Next i
         If Flg Then Exit For
      Next c
   Next r
End Sub
It may take a couple of minutes.
 
Solution

Excel Facts

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.

Work like a charm.
Thank You very much.
