Is There a way for VBA to control conditional formatting?

Posted on 2015-01-29
Last Modified: 2015-01-29
I have a workbook with several tabs in it. Specifically worksheet "Yearly".

In each of the cells: Y23, Y24, Y25, AA23, AA24 there is a checkbox. I would like to know how to have the checkboxes turn ON and OFF the conditional formatting being applied to cells: "$A$11:$G$16,$I$11:$O$16,$Q$11:$W$16,$A$20:$G$25,$I$20:$O$25,$Q$20:$W$25,$A$29:$G$34,$I$29:$O$34,$Q$29:$W$34,$A$38:$G$43,$I$38:$O$43,$Q$38:$W$43"

The conditional formatting is applied as 5 rules against the group above.

Thank you in advance for any help or guidance here....

Is this what you want ?

I noticed nothing for Events built there. But the rest try the check box is this what you want ?

You had holiday and statuary holiday all in the same as no check box for each one separate.

Nice piece of work you have there !!! congrat

Events etc. will be a different question..... They are mostly associated with the text being added or not added in worksheets 1 thru 12

You are correct regarding Holidays, I missed that part, there should be a separate checkbox for each (Statutory and Observed should be with separate checkboxes.) If that can be added, this question is done......

All the rest work wonderfully....
