I am terrible with if statements, and have a need a sub with 4.

On active tab and starting in row 3.

If column E and column AJ equal each other, move to the next row do nothing.

If column E has anything in it and column AJ is blank, of that row turn column C thru E green.

If column E is blank and column AJ has anything in it, of that row turn column AG thru AJ red.

If any red cells (column AJ) = green cells (column E) , delete the green row, and turn the red one yellow.  Need to do a top down search of column E

If column E and column AJ are both blank?  Home cursor and stop sub.




Looking assistance i writing this sub..  Thanks. -R-

Here is a macro that does what I think you requested.
Sub EversusAJ()
Dim celG As Range, celR As Range, rg As Range, rgGreen As Range, rgRed As Range, rw As Range
With ActiveSheet
    Set rg = .UsedRange
    Set rg = Range(.Cells(3, 1), rg.Cells(rg.Rows.Count, rg.Columns.Count))
End With
rg.Interior.ColorIndex = -4142  'No highlighting
For Each rw In rg.Rows
    If (rw.Cells(1, "E") = "") And rw.Cells(1, "AJ") = "" Then
        Exit For
    ElseIf rw.Cells(1, "E") = "" Then
        rw.Cells(1, "AG").Resize(1, 4).Interior.ColorIndex = 3      'red
        Set rgRed = rw.Cells(1, "AG").Resize(1, 4)
        For Each celR In rgRed.Cells
            If celR <> "" Then
                Set celG = Nothing
                On Error Resume Next
                Set celG = rgGreen.Find(celR.Value, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole, MatchCase:=False)
                On Error GoTo 0
                If Not celG Is Nothing Then
                    celG.EntireRow.Delete
                    celR.EntireRow.Cells(1, "AG").Resize(1, 4).Interior.ColorIndex = 6   'Yellow
                End If
            End If
        Next
    ElseIf rw.Cells(1, "AJ") = "" Then
        rw.Cells(1, "C").Resize(1, 3).Interior.ColorIndex = 14       'green
        If rgGreen Is Nothing Then
            Set rgGreen = rw.Cells(1, "C").Resize(1, 3)
        Else
            Set rgGreen = Union(rgGreen, rw.Cells(1, "C").Resize(1, 3))
        End If
    ElseIf rw.Cells(1, "E") = rw.Cells(1, "AJ") Then
        
    End If
Next

End Sub

Thanks Brad.
I did make a bad mistake...  I do not want to delete, the green.

In the statement...
If any red cells (column AJ) = green cells (column E) , delete the green row, and turn the red one yellow.  Need to do a top down search of column E

can we turn them both yellow?  I need to look at them before I delete them. -R-

Here is the code with the requested changes. It is now searching only green values in column E that occur above red values in column AJ. If it finds any, it turns the matching cells in columns E and AJ yellow--while leaving the remainder of those rows green and red.
Sub EversusAJ()
Dim celG As Range, celR As Range, rg As Range, rgGreen As Range, rw As Range
With ActiveSheet
    Set rg = .UsedRange
    Set rg = Range(.Cells(3, 1), rg.Cells(rg.Rows.Count, rg.Columns.Count))
End With
rg.Interior.ColorIndex = -4142  'No highlighting
For Each rw In rg.Rows
    If (rw.Cells(1, "E") = "") And rw.Cells(1, "AJ") = "" Then
        Exit For
    ElseIf rw.Cells(1, "E") = "" Then
        Set celR = rw.Cells(1, "AJ")
        rw.Cells(1, "AG").Resize(1, 4).Interior.ColorIndex = 3      'red
        If celR <> "" Then
            Set celG = Nothing
            On Error Resume Next
            Set celG = rgGreen.Find(celR.Value, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole, MatchCase:=False)
            On Error GoTo 0
            If Not celG Is Nothing Then
                celR.Interior.ColorIndex = 6   'Yellow
                celG.Interior.ColorIndex = 6   'Yellow
            End If
        End If
    ElseIf rw.Cells(1, "AJ") = "" Then
        rw.Cells(1, "C").Resize(1, 3).Interior.ColorIndex = 14       'green
        If rgGreen Is Nothing Then
            Set rgGreen = rw.Cells(1, "E")
        Else
            Set rgGreen = Union(rgGreen, rw.Cells(1, "E"))
        End If
    ElseIf rw.Cells(1, "E") = rw.Cells(1, "AJ") Then    'Do nothing
        
    End If
Next
End Sub

Is there a way to just search the green cells for match reds?  There are plenty that will match that are not going to be green or red.  I would like those the remain unformatted (no color).  -R-

What you requested is the way the code is designed (and working) in my test workbook.

Do note that the search for green cells only considers those that lie above the red cell. That's the way your original question was written--but it may not be what you really want. Please advise if the code needs to change.

Is there a way that expand on this or do I need to submit another question?

Start in row of E4 of active tab, check and do the following:

1.      If yellow leave the row alone and move to the next row down E5 and check that.
2.      If blank leave alone, (there can be multiple blanks in a row),
a.      Look for next value in column E to check
b.      If none there Exit Sub.
3.      If cell in column E is green, and the cell in the same row (Column AJ) is blank.
a.      Copy column C thru I of that row, to AG  out.
b.      If column AJ is not blank.. move to the next row to check in column E.

I think what you are describing now is best suited for a new question.

When you post it, the color aspect needs to be clarified. Ideally, you would post a sample workbook with a few rows of data showing both yellow and green colors. If this is not possible, then you will need to specify:
1.  What ColorIndex or RGB colors did you use for yellow and green?
2.  Are the cells yellow or green because of Conditional Formatting? If so, what is the criteria?
3.  Are the cells are yellow or green because of regular formatting?
4.  Which version of Excel are you using?

Excel 2010 added the DisplayFormat property, which circumvents the discussion about Conditional Formatting/Regular Formatting by returning the ColorIndex or RGB color that is actually being displayed.
