Check to see if a color is in a range of cells

I need a formula to plug into a cell in excel. I want the cell to contain the number 1 if any cell in a range of different cells is the color yellow.

Also, I need a separate conditional formatting formula. I want to have a cell turn red if a different cell has a numerical value > 0. The name of that other cell is CompItemsDone. Right now, the formula that isn't working for me is: ="CompItemsDone>0"

Thanks.

YOu are asking two questions in one which is against the spirit of the site.

That said:

1. I need a formula to plug into a cell in excel. I want the cell to contain the number 1 if any cell in a range of different cells is the color yellow.

A. If the cells are manually colored then this will require a user function in VBA.
B. If the cells are conditionally colored then the same formulas as for the conditioning can be used but may well be too complex and so again VBA function could be used.

2. =CompItemsDone>0\

Thank you for the closure, but didn't you want further help on the matter of the color range ... I was pointing out the 'correct' approach being to ask two questions ... I wan't refusing to provide appropriate help here despite this.  Basically I need further info on the setup from you to try and assist further.
