Thank you for the help, hope the next version will auto refresh the
numbers
as they are highleighted in a certain color instead of clicking F9 every
time

See http://www.cpearson.com/Excel/colors.aspx for functions that return
the
color indices of a range of cells (either background color or font
color).
You can then use this function to perform "sum by color", "average by
color", and similar functions. The page contains all the code plus a
downloadable example.

Is there a Way to use the SumIf formula to Sum the Cells of a Certain
Text
Color. For example i would like the cells that have a text color of red
in
a
certain column to be added up, and if the text of any other cell is
that
column is changed to red it will automaticaly place it in the sum. If
the
Sumif does not work is there another way i can use, i have little or no
progamming skills.
