VBA to return the details of condtional formatting

I have two questions,

is it possible to have a vba code that lists all of the condtional formatting range and its condtional formula in a workbook?

secondly, how to set condtional formatting using vba.

for example in SELECTION OF range A1:A20  i want to set the formula =COUNTIFS($B$1:$B$20,$A1) in the condtional formatting to highlight it in yellow if the condtion is met.

appreciate your help.

Sure, something like this should do it... if it has to work with existing conditional formatting entries or not you might not need/want to clear existing conditions etc.

With Range("A1:A20")
        .FormatConditions.Delete
        .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=COUNTIFS($B$1:$B$20,$A1)"
        .FormatConditions(1).SetFirstPriority
        .FormatConditions(1).Interior.Color = 65535
        .FormatConditions(1).StopIfTrue = False
    End With

Open in new window


For Each objFC In Range("A1:A20").FormatConditions
       Debug.Print objFC.Type, objFC.Interior.Color, objFC.Formula1
Next
