    Is it possible to change colors of cells based on value in cell (.

    I would like to have the background of cell automatically shaded in grey
    level based on the value contained in the cell (values between 0-255).
    0 would correspond to Black
    255 to white

    Hi LC
    Highlight all cells you want to be affected by the condition
    Click on Format/Conditional Formatting
    Cell value between 0 and 255, set your formats, Click Add
    Cell value greater than 255, set your formats, Click Add
    Click OK

    Hi

    so if the cell value was 0 you want black, if it was 128 you want a mid-grey
    and if it was 255 you want white - with all graduations between?

    if this is so, i don't think excel will show the graduations as distinct as
    you wish, but you could try the following code:

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

    Dim gcolour As Long

    If Target.Address = "$K$4" And Target.Value <> "" Then
    gcolour = Target.Value
    Target.Interior.Color = RGB(gcolour, gcolour, gcolour)
    End If
    End Sub

    ---
    to use the code, right mouse click on the sheet tab of the sheet you want
    the code to work in, choose view code and paste this code on the right hand
    side of the screen.
    change the K4 to the cell you're interested in formatting.

    Cheers
