Excel/VBA adjustment

Question
Hi Tom

I have recorded the following macro

Range("V14").Select
   With Selection.Font
       .ThemeColor = xlThemeColorDark1
       .TintAndShade = -0.249977111117893
   End With
   Range("W15").Select

Once the the cell V14 is selected I would like to apply the following colour

R   191
G   191
B   191

At present the macro stops on the third line: .ThemeColor = xlThemeColorDark1

Could you adjust the code for me please?

Regards

Chris

Answer
Chris,


Revision just corrects some typos I had in the original

Range("V14").Select
  With Selection.Font
      .Color = RGB(191,191,191)
      .TintAndShade = -0.249977111117893
  End With
  Range("W15").Select

or since
? rgb(191,191,191)
12566463

so since rgb(191,191,191) = 12566463  you could do

Range("V14").Select
  With Selection.Font
      .Color = 12566463    'RGB(191,191,191)
      .TintAndShade = -0.249977111117893
  End With
  Range("W15").Select

That gives me a light gray color.
