First off this is one of the best forums ive been on. I’ve only recently created an account but I have already learned so much from this forum.
My question as per the title is with regards to Conditional Formatting. As seen below in the code I have so far I have applied a background color as the formatting. But after running this macro, although the conditions are applied to the selected cells there is no formatting to with it. When I click on manage existing rules, the conditions are there but it comes up with “No Format Set”. As can be seen here:
Sub tableSetup() Dim tbl As ListObject Set tbl = ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add(SourceType:=xlSrcRange, Source:=Selection, xllistobjecthasheaders:=xlYes, tablestylename:="Custom") cellStr = tbl.DataBodyRange.Cells(1).Address cellStr = Replace(cellStr, "$", "") formulaStr = "=IsFormula(" & cellStr & ")" With tbl.DataBodyRange .FormatConditions.Delete .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:=formulaStr .FormatConditions.Interior.Color = RGB(191, 191, 191) End With End Sub
You aren’t telling it which FormatConditions to apply the formatting to.
With tbl.DataBodyRange .FormatConditions.Delete .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:=formulaStr .FormatConditions(.FormatConditions.Count).Interior.Color = RGB(191, 191, 191) End With
You’ve deleted all other .FormatConditions so legitimately, this could be referred to as .FormatConditions(1) but when you add a .FormatConditions, it is always the last one in the queue until you do something like .FormatConditions(.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority which moves it to the front of the queue.
You can also use the object created with .FormatConditions.Add to form a nested With … End With block for correctly referencing multiple operations.
With tbl.DataBodyRange .FormatConditions.Delete with .FormatConditions.Add(Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:=formulaStr) .Interior.Color = RGB(191, 191, 191) .SetFirstPriority end with End With
