    Smile How to apply macro to an entire workbook

    Afternoon All

    I have an excel sheet with a macro that changes the colour of cells depending on their content. The problem I have is that the macro only runs for 1 of the sheets and not the others.

    Does anyone know how to go about making it run on all sheets?

    the code so far is:

    I've also attached a screeshot of the code, Im using excel 2003, Most of the sheets are password protected as well if that makes a difference?

    regards

    Hi,

    Please remember to wrap your code in code tags. Since you're new I'll change it for you this time.

    Put the code in the Workbook Sheet Change event.

    however it still behaves in exactly the same way,
    any other suggestions?

    Hi David

    In addition to changing the line of code you need to MOVE the procedure FROM the Sheet Module TO the ThisWorkbook Module.

    Hi

    In the Visual Basic Environment look in the 'Project - VBA Project' window on the top left.

    Find your particular workbook and if necessary expand the tree by clicking the small '+' sign. In this tree you'll find the 'This Workbook' object. Double click this. Then over on the right from the left hand drop down pick the Workbook Object, and in the right hand drop down select the SheetChange event.

    See attached picture
