Hi Homer1779, :-)

I don't know much about Excel, but when I need it I usually use a nice trick to record a macro and then look in its source code.

This worked for me:

    With ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, 3).Interior
        .Color = <somecolor>
        .Pattern = xlSolid
    End With

    With ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, 3).Interior
        .ColorIndex = <index>
        .Pattern = xlSolid
    End With

'Don't know if this helps at all but hopefully you can test with your own macros and get what you need.

Greetings,
    </ntr> :)

Nic....

I solved this problem in the summer time

Its a pity the kill off question is not there anymore, it just makes the old questions hang about for ages and increases your workload

All the best
