Can i change cell color in excel with autoit ?

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I have a work book which contained some date values. So each time i opened this book, i need to change the back ground color of cells which will come under a specific criteria. Say, cells which contained the date value of current month. I know how to find a specific range of cells. But i don't know how to change the color programatically.

Hello,
 
Hope this helps:
 
#include <EXCEL.AU3>
Local $oAppl = _Excel_Open(True, False, True, True, True)
Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookNew($oAppl, 1)

With $oAppl.ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(1)
.Range("A1:A1").Interior.Color = 0x330099
EndWith

 

 
Please note that color codes in excel are BGR and not RGB
 
Other fun commands:
.Range("A1:A1").Font.Bold = True
.Range("A1:A1").Font.Color = 0xFFFFFF
.Range("A1:A1").Borders.Color = 0x000000

Just use an RGB color chart and swap the R and the B.

Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".
