In Excel, how do I "Countif" a cell is a certain format?
If I choose a series of cells and I want to determine how many of those cells
have a fill color of Red, how many have green, etc..., can I do that?

Hi,
You can add the following code to your workbook Function CountFormats(R As Range, E As Range) As Integer Application.Volatile Dim cell As Range Dim Total As Integer Dim T As Boolean Set S = E.Cells(1, 1) Total = 0 For Each cell In R T = True With cell If .Font.ColorIndex < S.Font.ColorIndex Then T = False If .Interior.ColorIndex < S.Interior.ColorIndex Then T = False If .Font.Bold < S.Font.Bold Then T = False If .Font.Italic < S.Font.Italic Then T = False If .Font.Underline < S.Font.Underline Then T = False End With If T = True Then Total = Total + 1 End If Next cell CountFormats = Total End Function In the spreadsheet you can enter the function as follows: =CountFormats(A1:F13,H9) This function will count the number of cells in the range A1:F13 that have the same formatting as cell H9. This function check five types of formatting, you can remove any of those from the code. Font Color, Interior Color, Bold, Italic, Underline. As written all these formats must match, so if you only want to deal with fill color it would read Function CountFormats(R As Range, E As Range) As Integer Application.Volatile Dim cell As Range Dim Total As Integer Dim T As Boolean Set S = E.Cells(1, 1) Total = 0 For Each cell In R T = True With cell If .Interior.ColorIndex < S.Interior.ColorIndex Then T = False End With If T = True Then Total = Total + 1 End If Next cell CountFormats = Total End Function  Thanks, Shane Devenshire "Pheasants21" wrote: If I choose a series of cells and I want to determine how many of those cells have a fill color of Red, how many have green, etc..., can I do that?
