    Changing row colours based on cell values

    I have created a code which colours from A2 to M2 based on the value in column M2. For example, if M2 = "Yes", the cells colour green, if M2 = "No", the cells colours red and for any other situation the cells remain blank. The code also runs automatically at the moment which I want it to do.

    However, now I've got this working I want to apply it right from row 2 to row 1500. I'm very new to VBA and so this is probably very basic, but I'd appreciate any help!

    Re: Changing row colours based on cell values

    Hello stormhayward,

    Any reason why you do not apply Conditional Formatting to solve your issue?

    If you need help with same, attach a sample workbook.

    Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and then scroll down to Manage Attachments to open the upload window.

    Regards.

    What is wrong with applying Conditional Formatting instead of using VBA?

    Don't get smart Tjaart! But seriously, I hadn't seen your post - old friend

    I think that formulas and conditional formatting just "mess up" an otherwise pristine sheet.

    OK - so I'm a bigot - it's an identity of a sort

    Re: Changing row colours based on cell values

    Hi, thanks for the help, but neither of those codes work, nothing happens when I use them. Any idea why? Also, I'd rather use coding as it's a lot neater than conditional formatting

    You haven't provided a sample workbook yet.

    Re: Changing row colours based on cell values

    Here's a sample workbook. I've only filled in to row 20, but I want the formula to fill in down to row 1500. It's pretty self-explanatory what I'm trying to do, but maybe this workbook will help explain.

    Re: Changing row colours based on cell values

    Sorry, I was typing in Yes and No without capitals, my mistake! Also, is there any way for these codes to work if I don't manually type in 'Yes' or 'No'? I.e. the cell will change to yes or no via a formula rather than being manually typed.

    Re: Changing row colours based on cell values

    Hello stormhayward,

    I notice that you visited the Forum a couple of times, after some additional solutions were offered in this Thread, without any comment?

    For your convenience I am now attaching a sample Workbook with the Code suggested in the later posts.

    If that takes care of your original question, please select Thread Tools from the menu link above and mark this thread as SOLVED.

    Thanks.
