    Data from table, color is condition

    Hello,

    I have no idea how to continue and need your help yet again. Was given the following task: The user enters data in a confusing table. The desired output is a table were the data for the current week is shown. An example is attached. I managed to implement three functions with VBA: GetCellColor(cell), wich returns a unique number per cell color, SumCellsByColor, and CountCellsByColor, which each get a range and a cell reference and sum or count the cells. I am sorry that I can't upload a .xlsm file, but that is forbidden in the environment I'm in - I will copy the code below. If somebody would be willing to help, he or she would have to copy the code into a module.

    Until now, you would do the task like this: Check if date in current week is in confusing table -> if yes: check the row in which the date is-> check the column where Day 1 is written -> sum up all entrys of the respective colors.

    Could you tell me if there is an easy way to do the task with excel formulas, or do I have to look into a more complicated VBA-Function? I would be extremely thankful!


    The functions are:

    There are no built-in Excel functions that return the fill color of cells, so VBA is required.

    or do I have to look into a more complicated VBA-Function?
    It seems you have a solution for this. What else do you need to do that your current VBA does not accomplish?

    If we upload a .xlsm file, can you receive it?
    How about a .xlsb file?
    How about a .zip file? Would you be able to extract a .xlsm file from a .zip file?

    Thank you for your answer. I am sorry if the question was unclear - Yeah, my functions work as they were intended. Basically, I have difficulties finding a formula that manages to "transfer" the data from the, for a lack of a better word, confusing table to the ordinary table. It is basically a problem of "formatting" existing data. The output I thought of is colored yellow. No, our firewall protects against all sorts of office documents that contain macros. I could try and upload a .xlsm from home, if that is better for you.
