Hi! I came across to this thread coz i was looking for an answer to my problem. And found this post "
However, what I want is to count all cells with red font color in a range but the FONT COLOR was based on the conditional formatting.
Example: range is A1:A1000 then the formatting I made was to turn DUPLICATE ENTRIES into a RED FONT COLOR. regardless of the text content. if apple and banana were duplicated twice. the result should give me NOT 2 BUT 4.
Thanks in advance!

You may place the following Function on a Standard Module.
Function getCountBasedOnCFFontColor(Rng As Range, CFColor As Long) As Long Dim Cel As Range Dim cnt As Long Dim i As Long For Each Cel In Rng If Cel.DisplayFormat.Font.Color = CFColor Then cnt = cnt + 1 Next Cel getCountBasedOnCFFontColor = cnt End Function
And then you may call this Function in your main routine to count the cells with a specific font color set based on the conditional formatting like this...
Sub CountCellsWithRedFont() Dim Rng As Range Dim cnt As Long Set Rng = Range("A1:A1000") 'Calling Function getCountBasedOnCFFontColor to count the cells based on CF color cnt = getCountBasedOnCFFontColor(Rng, vbRed) 'OR 'cnt = getCountBasedOnCFFontColor(Rng, RGB(255, 0, 0)) 'OR 'cnt = getCountBasedOnCFFontColor(Rng, 255) MsgBox "Cells with Red font color are " & cnt & "." End Sub

hi dear! thanks for taking time to help.
I am a little bit lost. Please enlighten me.
(1) the first set of codes, this is VB code and will be placed in module 1, right?
(2) the 2nd set of codes, where will I insert this?
I tried putting both sets of codes in the VB-module. However, I cant figure out the formula that has to be entered in excel.
I tried this...
more functions > user defined category > getCountBasedOnCFFontColor
the formula i used...
B17:B1016 is the range
the last B17 is the first cell of my data in RED FONT COLOR (i doubted this)
thank you very much again! looking forward to hear an update!

No, that function was not supposed to be used on the Worksheet like a regular function.
