Dear Experts:

I would like to perform the following action using VBA on the current workbook

... Look for grey shaded cells (RGB 222, 222, 222) in all worksheets of the current workbook with exception of one named 'MasterSheet'
... If found perform the following multiplication:
C5 (Cell reference in worksheet 'MasterSheet') times the value found in that grey shaded cell
... Do the loop with this multiplication.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Andreas,

Do you mean replace the value in the shaded cell with itself multiplied by C5 on the master sheet, or something else? "Do the loop with this multiplication." isn't really clear to me.

Regards,
Rory

Sub mulgrey()
    Dim cel As Range
    For Each cel In ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Cells
        If cel.Interior.Color = RGB(222, 222, 222) Then
            cel.Value = Sheets("Mastersheet").Range("C5") * cel.Value
        End If
    Next cel
End Sub

Hi Roy,

ok, the requirements were not clear, I have to admit.

It is: the value in the grey shaded cell times C5 (MasterSheet)

Hi ssaqibh:

we are almost there, thank you very much. The multiplication is only performed on the active sheet, but there are grey shaded cells in all worksheets. The multiplication is not to be performed in the 'MasterSheet' worksheet.

Thank you, Regards, Andreas

Sorry, I missed the "All worksheets" part.

Sub mulgrey()
    Dim cel As Range
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
        If ws.Name <> "Mastersheet" Then
            For Each cel In ws.UsedRange.Cells
                If cel.Interior.Color = RGB(222, 222, 222) Then
                    cel.Value = Sheets("Mastersheet").Range("C5") * cel.Value
                End If
            Next cel
        End If
    Next ws
End Sub
