I am preparing a excel dashboard where in I need to change different colours based on other cell colours across various worksheets.

Say for example. I have a worksheet named "dashboard" with a row header "A". I have another worksheet named "1" which has 5 rows namely a,b,c,d,e respectively. a is filled with red colour b is filled with green c with Yellow d with orange using conditional formatting.

I need to change the colour of dashboard row to the max colour found in sheet "1" which is RED/Orange/Amber/green in the order of precedence.

Can I use a formula to do this conditional formatting or do I need to use a vba script. Pls. help

Can't you just use the same conditional formatting rules on the Dashboard sheet that you use on Sheet "1"?

e.g. If a rule on Sheet "1" checks the value of certain cell and fills cell "a" with red, why not just test that same cell on the Dashboard sheet?

Hi Derby,

Thanks for the response but I cannot use the same rules on the dashboard as I used on the other sheets, As I have multiple rows on other sheet with a different colours and I need to change the colour of the dashboard based on the highest colour that I embark onto on the other sheet. For example IF I find a combination of Red/Yellow and Green od different cells on the other sheet, I need to colour the dashboard column to red.

Derby could you help on this please.
