I can see how to do that with RGB for a Shape, but as far I can see cell interior color is not available as RGB.

I'm trying to make the interior fill color of a shape equal to the fill color of a specified cell.

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

pls try
Sub Macro1()

    Set shp = ActiveSheet.Shapes(1)
    With shp.Fill
        .Visible = msoTrue
        .ForeColor.RGB = Range("A1").Interior.Color
        .Transparency = 0
        .Solid
    End With
    
End Sub

Open in new window

Regards
