I test contents of the field values in a recordset.  The records are written out to an Excel spreadsheet . I want to be able to set cell color based on the results of the test. I can easily create and populate the worksheet but do not see a way to set the cell color. While a solution is desired, a definitive "can't do that" will earn the points.

Try
objSpreadsheet.Cells(1,1).Interior.Color = RGB(229,229,231)
' or whatever you have your spreadsheet called or
objSpreadsheet.Cells(1,1).Interior.Color = vbRed
