I would like to know if there is any way to use the the background color of a cell as part of the IF function.

I am interested in something like:
- IF (cell background color is red), then calculate this, else that)

I cannot find any criteria or attribute description to check the background color of a cell.

thanks
Edoardo

If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.
