I have a set of cells

5   3   8   2  -6   4   3  -2

I have set a condition formatting to set any negative values to green (colorindex of 4) so the cells in brackets would show up green

5   3   8   2  [-6]   4   3  [-2]

however, when i try to get the cells(r,c).interior.colorindex, it still gives me clear althought the conditional formatting shows it as green.

myColor = cells(r,c).interior.colorindex      (myColor becomes value -4142 which is clear)

How do i get the value of the conditional formatting color and not just the cell color of that cell.
