    Count Conditional Formatted Cells

    Hello-

    I have Column A that is conditionally formatted to a Red Fill if the date is between 6PM of the previous day and 6AM on the current day. Is there anyway to count the red cells.

    Thanks

    Clik

    What is that conditional formula?
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    You cannot directly count cell colors without using VBA, but I infer from NBVC's question that he will lead you to using something like COUNTIFS using the same condition you use to set the colors.

    Re: Count Conditional Formatted Cells

    How do I copy a conditional format so I can paste it? I just used the conditional format rule creator on the ribbon. In the rule creator I selected Highlight Cells>Between>03/01/2010 7:00PM and 03/02/2010 7:00 AM.

    What I am trying to do is get a count of the # of Voicemails or Emails that come in after business hours.

    The Workbook has 2 worksheets 1st called DATA and Column D of DATA = Call Type that has three options VM, EMAIL or ACD. 2nd called Report which is where I want the count to be.

    Re: Count Conditional Formatted Cells

    He already gave you the conditional formatting

    "...conditionally formatted to a Red Fill if the date is between 6PM of the previous day and 6AM on the current day"

    So you need to Count the number of line that have a date between 6PM (previous day) and 6AM (current day)

    Use CountIf/CountIfs and make your criteria equal to the conditional formatting.

    Re: Count Conditional Formatted Cells

    Something like

    =Countifs(Range,">03/01/2010 7:00 PM",Range,"<03/02/2010 7:00 AM")

    where Range is the range to count within...

    If you want to automatically use yesterday and today's dates... each time you look at the sheet.. then

    =COUNTIFS(Range,">"&TODAY()-1+TIME(19,0,0),Range,"<"&TODAY()+TIME(7,0,0))
