VBA to change colors

Hi Guys, what would be the code for

If Range(S6:S450) >=38.75 then VB red, else VB white

If (S6:S450) >=38.75 then Range(B6:B450)VB red, else VB white

I need the code to activate these 2 columns depending on Column S values

I did this with conditional format but it slows down my sheet operation.

I still think that this is a bad idea, but if you insist, this goes in the sheet module for the worksheet you need to "watch":


Option Explicit

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
    
    ApplyColors
    
End Sub

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    
    If Not Intersect(Target, Me.[s6:s450]) Is Nothing Then
        ApplyColors Intersect(Target, Me.[s6:s450])
    End If
    
End Sub

Private Sub ApplyColors(Optional rng As Range)
    
    Dim UseThisRange As Range
    Dim cel As Range
    
    Const Threshold As Double = 38.75
    
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    
    If Not rng Is Nothing Then
        Set UseThisRange = rng
    Else
        Set UseThisRange = Intersect(Me.UsedRange, Me.[s6:s450])
    End If
    
    For Each cel In UseThisRange.Cells
        If cel >= Threshold Then
            cel.Interior.Color = vbRed
            Me.Cells(cel.Row, "b").Interior.Color = vbRed
        Else
            cel.Interior.ColorIndex = xlColorIndexNone
            Me.Cells(cel.Row, "b").Interior.ColorIndex = xlColorIndexNone
        End If
    Next
    
    Application.EnableEvents = True
    
End Sub

Open in new window



Keep the Change event if the values in S will change by manual entry, and the Calculate event if they will change by formula recalculation.

It's unlikely that VBA will be faster than Conditional Formatting.  Indeed, it would probably be slower to use VBA with a Change or Calculate event sub than to just use CF.
