Help with vba Columns and rows

Problem Statement:
Check column by column to see if Column(x) Row4 is Interior Color is Gray color RGB(220, 230, 241)
Check all rows in Column(x) for content
If there is content, copy the content to Column(x), Row 2

Non Duplicates...
Check to see if the currently read contents are the same as the previously read contents
If they are not the same (No Duplicates)
      Write the contents to Cell Column (x), Row 2

excel vba check column for value
excel vba check column for duplicates

Example using the screen shot in the document…
1)      Column “H” Row “4” contains the characters “CT_001” in a cell that has a gray background RGB(220,230,241)
2)      Check (read) the next row in Column “H”. It contains the characters “No”.
3)      Write the Characters “No” into a “read” variable.
4)      Write that variable to Column “H” Row “2”
5)      Read the next row. In this case “No Response Data Found”
6)      Check to see if the characters are equal to the “read” variable.
7)      If they are not write the characters to Column “H” Row “2”
8)      Move the characters “No Response Data Found” to the ‘Read” variable ( want to ensure duplicates do not get written.
9)      In this case Column “H” Row “2” will now contain the Characters “No” and “No Response Data Found”
Code so far…
Sub FindGray

Dim col As Range, rg As Range
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Set rg = ActiveSheet.UsedRange

If rg.Column <> 1 Then Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(1, rg.Column - 1)).EntireColumn.Hidden = True
Range(Cells(1, rg.Column + rg.Columns.Count), Cells(1, ActiveSheet.Columns.Count)).EntireColumn.Hidden = True

For Each col In ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Columns
    If col.EntireColumn.Cells(4, 1).Interior.Color <> RGB(220, 230, 241) Then _ 

End Sub
