Folks,
I've looked for VBA code to delete any conditional formatting rules in a worksheet. What I've seen is a little confusing.
The reason is I have some worksheets that people can practice with that have conditional formatting. If the user wants to try again then they'd click on the "Try Again" command button and if any conditional formatting rules were part of the exercise those would be deleted.

Take a look at this. If you need to remove all conditional formatting from every sheet in the workbook you'll need to make some adjustments, but we can help you with that. http://mydailymicrosoft.blogspot.com/2011/04/excel-vba-remove-all-conditional.html

Also, if you attach a practice copy of your workbook I could implement the code for you and comment it so that you can learn from it.

I only need it for the worksheet conditional formatting applies to and not all sheets. Can I replace ".Worksheets" with the name of the worksheet, ".CalAutoMiles"? or .Worksheets."CalAutoMiles"?

This should do the trick. I did some quick testing but it could use a thorough test. Let me know if you have any questions.

Sounds good.

Note: Right now it's looking through all the cells in the range of A1:G12. If you know that there will only be VBAConditionalFormatting in column G you can change the A1:G12 to G1:G12 in the code. Or you can change it as necessary.

One more thing, it's only looking for cells that have a red fill with white text. If there are other combinations it needs to look for you'll have to add them or let me know and I can help.

Have a good weekend.
