    Conditional Formatting using VBA - Code not working properly

    Hi All,

    I have a VBA Code which sets Conditional Formatting for a range.

    But it's not working as it should be.

    Can anybody please have a look at attached file and suggest a solution.

    In the file, only one function is written as below:

    Following is the conditional formatting rules in simple english:
    1. If Cell in column D is blank, no formatting should be applied.
    2. If Cell in column F is >= Cell in column E, that whole row should become green.


    Kindly help!

    I think. Am I right?

    Also you have improved the format condition which is really great.

    Thanks,

    You're welcome. Thanks for the rep.

    Am I right?
    Pretty much. you need to be on the row where the Conditional Formatting starts. I suspect this could be considered a flaw but that's the way it is.

    And yes, the formula is improved. And I decided to clear only the cells used rather than the whole sheet though I'm not sure how much it improves efficiency. Excel probably knows which cells need clearing

    Hello Tejas,

    Is possible to attach your workbook with functioning vba?
    Plus, what is supposed to do exactly?

    Thank you

    @Naja:
    I have provided sample workbook and also explained what exactly needs to be done. Have a closed look.

    @TMShucks:
    I really liked the new formula you used. Thanks for that.
    Yes I saw that you are not clearing conditional formatting of whole sheet but I can't do that as my Range is dynamic every time.

    ... will give you a dynamic range base on the number of rows in column C. It just means you're not trying to clear Conditional Formatting from cells where there is none. I suspect Excel is clever enough to know anyway but there might be a slight performance improvement by attacking the cells where you have data.
