    Is there a forumula that uses colors instead of cell #'s?

    I am creating a worksheet where different items are highlighted several
    different colors. Is there a way to create a formula that changes when I
    change the highlighted color of the row instead of having to remove a cell or
    cells from one formula and add it to another? Thanks for any help!!

    No, as a colour change does not force a sheet recalculation.

    But you can have a formula that will reevaluate when the workbook reculates:

    That link was from Chip Pearson's site.

    But that requires a manual action to recalculate, it won't happen if the
    cell colour is just changed.

    But I agree with the emphasis!
