something like this?

Sub test()
    Dim r As Range, tmp As String
    Set r = Range("A1", "E2")
    For Each c In r
        tmp = "" & c.Font.Color
        Debug.Print "Cell (" & c.Address & ") font color = " & tmp
    Next
End Sub

Open in new window

I tried both these
        Debug.Print "" & CStr(Worksheets("BK-ACER_c").Cells(RowID, 1).Font.ColorIndex)
        Debug.Print "" & Worksheets("BK-ACER_c").Cells(RowID, 1).Font.Color

Open in new window


but it does only display either 1 or 0 (having no difference to different rows), even if there are some rows in yellow and some are not

Background color. I will use Interior.Color

so background color is not font color, try this instead:

Sub test()
    Dim r As Range, tmp As String
    Set r = Range("A1", "E2")
    For Each c In r
        tmp = "" & c.Font.Color
        Debug.Print "Cell (" & c.Address & ") font color = " & tmp
        
        tmp = "" & c.Interior.Color
        Debug.Print "Cell (" & c.Address & ") background color = " & tmp
    Next
End Sub

Open in new window


Refers to Interior.Color instead.
