Default Macro to find/report text in several files at once needs translationfor finding colored cells on the same way

Dear people that are better in VBA then me

A period ago I'd got a macro to find a specific text in a few files and the macro reported then in a new file where and in which files/sheets/cells the text was found. Really (for me) a spectacular code that works very well and helps me out to find/report text quickly.

Now another question came up which needs to find/report on the same way as it is now with text, but then to report a specific color found in several files.

In below code the part;
Range("B2").Select '(In B2 the search text is registered, like "AA1234")
aay = Range("B2").Value

Should be like B2 = Color of the cell to search.

If somebody could rewrite the code so it works for colors identical as for text it would be great

regards, Johan
