Hi,
how do you want to output this? You could use for example an MSFLexgrid-Control in a form. There you can set the background color for a row like this:

myFlexgrid.Col=0
myFlexgrid.Colsel=4
myFlexgrid.CellBackColor=vbGreen

hope this helps,
Christoph

For the time being I would highlight the rows on the Spreadsheet.

Hi again,
I just saw that you're working with Excel. Sorry 'bout that. it works like follows:

dim myWS as Excel.Worksheet

myWS.Range(Cell1,Cell2).Interior.Color = vbGreen

Cheers,
Christoph

This is what I actually meant, something like this. Thanks for your help anyway.

Sub myanother()

  For i = 3 To 1483
         myOpen = Cells(i, 2).Value
         myHigh = Cells(i, 3).Value
         myLow = Cells(i, 4).Value
         myClose = Cells(i, 5).Value
 
       If myOpen - 20 < myLow And myHigh - 20 < myClose Then
       
           For cols = 1 To 6
                Cells(i, cols).Interior.ColorIndex = 47
          Next cols
     
       End If
 
  Next i
End Sub
