I am trying to use this UDF on a spreadsheet and it is not available.

Public Function GetCellColor(ByVal Target As Range) As Integer
GetCellColor = Target.Interior.colorIndex
End Function

I have tried without the public. It is listed on the correct worksheet (general) GetCellColor.

The impression I get is, I should be able to enter in cell B2 =getcellcolor(A1). When I enter it, I get a #name ? error

Using Excel 2013

Tom

The UDF should be in a standard module, not a worksheet module.
