Hi, i have recently learnt how to enter a code in to the developer to enable the auto sum of cells with the same background colour. i was wondering if there is a code out there like this that will allow me to auto sum the cells with the same border colour. if so can you tell me the code or how to do it thanks  i dont know much about the developer side of things i just copied what a youtube tutorial said. thanks kelly

Hi Kelly,

Using formatting of cells to do calculations isn't a very good solution. It requires VBA programming which is not very easy to maintain unless you know what you are doing. It is better (and more efficient) to base your calculations on the content of the cells so you can use built-in functions like SUMIF, SUMIFS and their look-a-likes.
