Function for summing or counting cells based on a specified fill color

Hi

I would like to create and run a function that Sums or counts cells based on a specified fill color, for e.g. say i have a green fill in Cell B1 and I have different fill colours in Range (A1:A10)

I would like to know how many cells in (A1:A10) have the same green fill as in Cell B1

Thanks

San

Hi San

Here's something quick n dirty, but it does what you're looking for.

It's essentially requires you to employ helper cells to do the math.

A1 is the cell in which you change the color you wish to count.

Sub CountColor()

Dim cRange As Range, cSum As Range
Dim cCell As Range, tCell As Range
Dim c As Range

Set cRange = Range("C1:C10") 'your color range
Set cCell = Range("A1") 'base color to count
Set cSum = Range("D110") 'apply number to matching color
Set tCell = Range("B1") 'Sum Total matching colors

For Each c In cRange
If Not c.Interior.Color < cCell.Interior.Color Then
c.Offset(0, 1).Value = 1
End If
Next c

tCell = WorksheetFunction.Sum(cSum)

End Sub

Someone else may be able to give it a crew-cut to improve.

HTH
Mick.
