Change Conditional Formatting Color to Static

Post by CRISTOS »

Hi,
I got the following code to Change Conditional Formatting Color to Static. When running the macro, I receive "Run-time error '13'" for the following line:

Set objFormatCondition = rgeCell.FormatConditions(iconditionscount)

Code: Select all

Option Explicit
Sub a()

Dim iconditionno As Integer
Dim rng, rgeCell As Range
Set rng = Range("A1:A10")

For Each rgeCell In rng

   If rgeCell.FormatConditions.Count <> 0 Then
       iconditionno = ConditionNo(rgeCell)
       If iconditionno <> 0 Then
           rgeCell.Interior.ColorIndex = rgeCell.FormatConditions(iconditionno).Interior.ColorIndex
           rgeCell.Font.ColorIndex = rgeCell.FormatConditions(iconditionno).Font.ColorIndex
       End If
   End If
Next rgeCell

End Sub
Private Function ConditionNo(ByVal rgeCell As Range) As Integer

Dim iconditionscount As Integer
Dim objFormatCondition As FormatCondition

    For iconditionscount = 1 To rgeCell.FormatConditions.Count
        Set objFormatCondition = rgeCell.FormatConditions(iconditionscount)
        Select Case objFormatCondition.Type
           Case xlCellValue
               Select Case objFormatCondition.Operator
                   Case xlBetween: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, ">=", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True And _
                                           Compare(rgeCell.Value, "<=", objFormatCondition.Formula2) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlNotBetween: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, "<=", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True And _
                                           Compare(rgeCell.Value, ">=", objFormatCondition.Formula2) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlGreater: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, ">", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlEqual: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, "=", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlGreaterEqual: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, ">=", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlLess: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, "<", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlLessEqual: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, "<=", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlNotEqual: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, "<>", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                  If ConditionNo > 0 Then Exit Function
              End Select

          Case xlExpression
            If Application.Evaluate(objFormatCondition.Formula1) Then
               ConditionNo = iconditionscount
               Exit Function
            End If
       End Select

    Next iconditionscount
End Function

Private Function Compare(ByVal vValue1 As Variant, _
                         ByVal sOperator As String, _
                         ByVal vValue2 As Variant) As Boolean

   If Left(CStr(vValue1), 1) = "=" Then vValue1 = Application.Evaluate(vValue1)
   If Left(CStr(vValue2), 1) = "=" Then vValue2 = Application.Evaluate(vValue2)

   If IsNumeric(vValue1) = True Then vValue1 = CDbl(vValue1)
   If IsNumeric(vValue2) = True Then vValue2 = CDbl(vValue2)

   Select Case sOperator
      Case "=": Compare = (vValue1 = vValue2)
      Case "<": Compare = (vValue1 < vValue2)
      Case "<=": Compare = (vValue1 <= vValue2)
      Case ">": Compare = (vValue1 > vValue2)
      Case ">=": Compare = (vValue1 >= vValue2)
      Case "<>": Compare = (vValue1 <> vValue2)
   End Select
End Function

Welcome to Eileen's Lounge!

This code will fail if any of the newer types of conditional formatting introduced in Excel 2007 has been applied to the range, such as a Top n rule, a Highlight Duplicates rule or Data Bars, Color Scales or Icon Sets.

It does work correctly if only rules of the old type have been applied (greater than, less than, or formula).

So I suspect that one of the new rule types has been applied to A1:A10.

You can get around this by changing the ConditionNo function as follows:

Code: Select all

Private Function ConditionNo(ByVal rgeCell As Range) As Integer

Dim iconditionscount As Integer
Dim objFormatCondition As FormatCondition
    On Error GoTo ExitHere
    For iconditionscount = 1 To rgeCell.FormatConditions.Count
        Set objFormatCondition = rgeCell.FormatConditions(iconditionscount)
        Select Case objFormatCondition.Type
           Case xlCellValue
               Select Case objFormatCondition.Operator
                   Case xlBetween: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, ">=", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True And _
                                           Compare(rgeCell.Value, "<=", objFormatCondition.Formula2) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlNotBetween: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, "<=", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True And _
                                           Compare(rgeCell.Value, ">=", objFormatCondition.Formula2) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlGreater: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, ">", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlEqual: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, "=", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlGreaterEqual: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, ">=", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlLess: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, "<", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlLessEqual: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, "<=", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                   Case xlNotEqual: If Compare(rgeCell.Value, "<>", objFormatCondition.Formula1) = True Then _
                                           ConditionNo = iconditionscount

                  If ConditionNo > 0 Then Exit Function
              End Select

          Case xlExpression
            If Application.Evaluate(objFormatCondition.Formula1) Then
               ConditionNo = iconditionscount
               Exit Function
            End If
       End Select

    Next iconditionscount
ExitHere:
End Function
New type conditional formatting rules will now be ignored, i.e. they will remain "as is"; the formatting for these rules won't be converted to static.
