Is the plan to implement this via a conditional formatting formula?

I couldn't get the conditional formatting to set the color.
the formula '=A2.interior.color = 255' is accepted but does nothing

macro codewise it is:
If Range("A2").Interior.Color = 255 Then Range("C2").Interior.Color = 150

apparently you cannot get the format directly and should use code. I do it on the sheet selection change event e.g.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
  If Range("A2").Interior.Color = 255 Then Range("C2").Interior.Color = 150

Unfortunately, the Color and ColorIndex properties of a Range don't return the color of a cell that is displayed if Conditional formatting is applied to the cell.  Nor does it allow you to determine whether a conditional format is currently in effect for a cell.

See this article by Chip Pearson for workarounds.

Hi,


use below code as new function.

Function myColor(r As Range) As Integer
    myColor = r.Interior.ColorIndex
End Function

Open in new window


now go to conditional formatting and create two conditions.

1.

=mycolor($A$1)=mycolor($B$1)

then select your color

2.
=mycolor($A$1)<>mycolor($B$1)

then select your color

hope it will help you.
