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

Dim aay

Dim fso As Object
Dim fld As Object

'File/Directory with the Searchtext

aax = Range("B1").Value
Range("B2").Select '(In B2 the search text is registered, like "AA1234")
aay = Range("B2").Value

strPath = "" & aax
strSearch = "" & aay

Set wOut = Worksheets.Add
lRow = 1
With wOut
.Cells(lRow, 1) = "Workbook"
.Cells(lRow, 2) = "Worksheet"
.Cells(lRow, 3) = "Cell"
.Cells(lRow, 4) = "Text in Cell"
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set fld = fso.GetFolder(strPath)

strFile = Dir(strPath & "\*.xls*")
Do While strFile < ""
Set wbk = Workbooks.Open _
(Filename:=strPath & "\" & strFile, _
UpdateLinks:=0, _
ReadOnly:=True, _

For Each wks In wbk.Worksheets
Set rFound = wks.UsedRange.Find(strSearch)
If Not rFound Is Nothing Then
strFirstAddress = rFound.Address
End If

Exit Do
lRow = lRow + 1
.Cells(lRow, 1) = wbk.Name
.Cells(lRow, 2) = wks.Name

End If
Set rFound = wks.Cells.FindNext(After:=rFound)
Loop While strFirstAddress < rFound.Address

wbk.Close (False)
strFile = Dir
End With
MsgBox "Done"
