There is a ActiveProjects sheet with hundreds of projects.
I've attached Final Result and Source files (samples with small sample data).

I'm building the Excel VBA app that will do these steps:


1) Locate and select the correct file with the Raw Data.

2) Open the Template.

3) Select the data from the Range.

4) Clear current Gantt.

5) Select Relevant data from the Raw data and populate first 4 Columns of Gantt.
   - Project Name
   - Budget
   - TCI PM
   - Assisting

6) Run vba code to populate colored horizontal bars of Gantt chart.
   a) populate squares (cells) in proper Q (ex. 2Q 2016) based on the dates from Raw Data.
   b) add new YEAR if necessary (need 6 consecutive years).
   c) drop one YEAR if 1Q-4Q has no colored cells from top to bottom.

I want to see what is the best solution (must use VBA) to select data from the source and based on the dates - color the Cell with one of the 4 colors (Green, Yellow, Orange, Blue). That's all in step 6a.

Hi
Good solution is to use the find() method. I am providing the snippet of code I have done in my project:
  On Error GoTo Errorcatch
     tasks = Split(taskText, ",")
     taskCount = 0
    For taskno = 0 To UBound(tasks)
        With monitorSheet.Range(Cells(BaseRow, 1), Cells(BaseRow + 41, 1))
           Set found = .Find(tasks(taskno), LookIn:=xlValues)
        End With
        If Not found Is Nothing Then
            With Cells(found.Row(), columnNo)
                .Value = "="
                If found.Row() < 23 Then
                    .Interior.Color = RGB(255, 153, 0)
                Else
                    .Interior.Color = RGB(204, 51, 0)
                End If
I hope this helps. Let me know if it is not clear.
