Hello,
Hope you are well.

I am trying to colour four contiguous cells to a certain colour using two variables in a for Next Loop using the Offset statement. The flaw in my code is it only colours three contiguously, but not the fourth.

My code:
<code>
For x = 0 To 1
For y = 0 To 1
ActiveCell.Offset(x, y).Select
With Selection.Interior
.Pattern = xlSolid​
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic​
.Color = 6724095​
.TintAndShade = 0​
.PatternTintAndShade = 0
End With
Next y​
Next x
</code>

Can someone please assist or give advice to colour the 4 contiguously?

Regards,
Herman

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

You don't need to use a loop, you can simply do
Code:
With ActiveCell.Resize(2, 2).Interior
.Pattern = xlSolid
.PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
.Color = 6724095
.TintAndShade = 0
.PatternTintAndShade = 0
End With
