    How to write macro to change colour of rows

    Hope someone can help. I need a macro which will change the colour of a whole row in my data range, depending on the number of days overdue a task is. I want the macro to run when I open the file so I can see at a glance those tasks I need to chase up. I have a column with an IF function that works out the number of days overdue. I know the macro should be straightforward but I don't know where to start.

    I am more than willing to write a macro for you, however, have you thought about using Conditional Formatting?

    Thanks! However conditional formatting works only on the cell with that value, it seems, and I need the whole row to change colour... And the macro to run automatically when I open the file...
