Read Excel Cell Background Colour

Read Excel Cell Background Colour

Can anyone please advise if it is possible to determine the background colour of a specific cell within Excel. I have managed to determine the font colour so I'm hopeful that it can be done as I need to export data from the spreadsheet and place it specifically in a column on a CSV file based on if there is a colour!

Any help or advise will be GREATLY received!

Many thanks

Skip knows this stuff 'by heart'. smile
When I want to find out the proper VBA syntax, I just create a little Macro in Excel (and 'cheat')

Macro gave me this:


    With Selection.Interior
        .Pattern = xlSolid
        .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
        .Color = 65535
        .TintAndShade = 0
        .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With 

Which can be shorten to just this:


Range("F11").Interior.Color = vbYellow 

Have fun.
