Default Summing Cells by Color

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.

Default Summing Cells by Color

Hi

What causes the cells to be Red?
Is it formatting where negative numbers are Red?
If so, then
=SUMIF(A:A,"<0")
If they are Red because of Conditional Formatting, then let us know the
formula you are using for the condition.

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.
