I have a speadsheet where I need to change the value of the cell in Column C, based on the value of the cell in Column D.

Column C cells have a value of Medium.  I need to change that cell value to Medium Red if the value of the cell in Column D has a value that ends in 67.

I've attached a sample of the original file, and a sample of the desired results file.

Enter this formula in C2 and copy down

="MEDIUM"&IF(RIGHT(D2,2)="67"," RED","")

Can you convert this statement to vba.

Sometimes there could be more than MEDIUM in the cell, and this method would require me to handle the file.

Sub red67()
    Dim cel As Range
    For Each cel In Range("C:C")
        If Right(cel.Offset(, 1), 2) = "67" Then
            If Right(cel, 4) <> " RED" Then
                cel = cel & " RED"
            End If
        End If
    Next cel
End Sub

Had to change  a little, so that it was specific to MEDIUM, but works perfectly.  As always thanks a lot.

Sub red67()
    Dim cel As Range
    For Each cel In Range("C:C")
        If cel = "MEDIUM" Then
            If Right(cel.Offset(, 1), 2) = "67" Then
                If Right(cel, 4) <> "RED" Then
                    cel = cel & " RED"
                End If
            End If
        End If
    Next cel
End Sub
