Hi,

I am using the following code (From CPearson) to count cells of specific colour.

I have the code in my workbook module but I'm just getting #name? when trying to use it ?

Function CountByColor(InRange As Range, WhatColorIndex As
Integer, Optional OfText As Boolean = False) As Long
'
' This function return the number of cells in InRange with
' a background color, or if OfText is True a font color,
' equal to WhatColorIndex.
'
Dim Rng As Range
Application.Volatile True

For Each Rng In InRange.Cells
If OfText = True Then
CountByColor = CountByColor - _
(Rng.Font.ColorIndex = WhatColorIndex)
Else
CountByColor = CountByColor - _
(Rng.Interior.ColorIndex = WhatColorIndex)
End If
Next Rng

End Function
