Excel/Changing Cell Color


Hi Tom,

I have created a macro which changes the color of cells in value fields when I change the threshold in I6 cell.

But I have got one more condition to add in this macro. I want to apply the above color changing condition to only to Employee total as per H column. So wherever Employee total value is given in the save row only I want to change the color of cell in value fields based on the threshold.

I will email you the worksheet. Please help.


I returned you file via email.

SI modified the macro to color cells in a row only if it had the word total someplace in the text in column H for that row.  That is what I understood your requirement to be.
