Hi all, I need to convert the following If then statements used for conditional formatting to VBA format so they can be used to determine if the formatting was applied. I would also need another formula that combines the two, as I need formatting that would cover both of these formats. Many thanks for any assistance you all can provide.

=IF(AND(NOT(ISBLANK(I29)),NOT(ISBLANK(G29)),NOT(ISBLANK(E29)),NOT(SUM(G29+I29)=E29)),TRUE,FALSE)

=IF(AND(OR(((F8-I8)/I8>0.2),((F8-I8)/I8<-0.2)),NOT(ISBLANK(I8)),NOT(ISBLANK(F8))),TRUE,FALSE)

If Evaluate("IF(AND(NOT(ISBLANK(I29)),NOT(ISBLANK(G29)),NOT(ISBLANK(E29)),NOT(SUM(G29+I29)=E29)),TRUE,FALSE)") THen

Open in new window


and:
If Evaluate("IF(AND(OR(((F8-I8)/I8>0.2),((F8-I8)/I8<-0.2)),NOT(ISBLANK(I8)),NOT(ISBLANK(F8))),TRUE,FALSE)") Then

Open in new window


Didn't really follow the last part.

=IF(AND(NOT(ISBLANK(I29)),NOT(ISBLANK(G29)),NOT(ISBLANK(E29)),NOT(SUM(G29+I29)=E29)),TRUE,FALSE)

dim result as boolean

if (i29<>"" and G29 <>"" and E29<>"") then
if  cint(G29)+cint(I29)=cint(E29) then
  result = true
else
  result = false
end if

That works, but if your ranges are changes, or you're moving down a column trying to do this formula in a loop, you'll need to have those ranges handy and rebuild the suggested EVALUATE concatenating that string together with your changing addresses, or do this:

Dim colI as string, colG as string, colE as string, colF as string
dim colIaddr as range, colGaddr as range, colEaddr as string, colFaddr as string

be sure to set these ranges as you go through your loop (assuming you are in a loop), then:

For row = 1 to whatever '(assuming going down row by row)

  colI = range("I" & row).address
  colG = range("G" & row).address
  colE = range("E" & row).address
  colF = range("F" & row).address

  If Evaluate("IF(AND(NOT(ISBLANK(" & colI & ")),NOT(ISBLANK(" & colG & ")),NOT(ISBLANK(" & colE & ")),NOT(SUM(" & colG & "+" & colI & ")=" & colE & ")),TRUE,FALSE)") Then
          your code.
..
..

'and

If Evaluate("IF(AND(OR((("& colF & "-" & colI & ")/" & colI & ">0.2),((" & colF & "-" & colI & ")/" & colI & "<-0.2)),NOT(ISBLANK(" & colI & )),NOT(ISBLANK(" & colF & "))),TRUE,FALSE)") Then
      your code

...
...
next row

Hope this helps!

Not really - if those formulas are being used for CF, you can pull them straight out of the FormatConditions for each cell and evaluate them directly. :)

@Rorya- thank you so much for that simple solution- I spent all afternoon tearing my hair out trying to convert those statements directly to VBA

@dlmille- thanks for your help as well- very good to know.
