Change a cell's fill color dynamically?
Is it possible to lookup a value in a cell over here and change a cell's fill
color over there based on certain criteria?
For instance, if all the workdays for a month are listed in column A, is it
possible to look up all the Fridays and change the corresponding cell in
Column C from whatever color to Yellow?
While I'm at it, is it possible to unlock those certain C cells for editing,
Thank You so very much.
You can handle the color issue with conditional formatting; you don't need any

value in cell E35 in this case. Is there something I can add to this

...which is the best version for an italian user ?
I am Italian and I am a Microsoft Money 2004 French edition user.
The reason why I am using the French edition is that as far as I know
there isn't an updated Italian version of Money.
Is this the best choice ?
Since my English is much better than my French should I rather use the
USA or UK or international version ? Do they support the EUR ?
if I decide to change how can I migrate the data from the French
version to another version ?
Thanks a lot

DataArray(Z, 2) = Cells(X, 1).Interior.ColorIndex
Cells(X, 1).Interior.ColorIndex = DataArray(Z, 2)
I go through a loop and if I execute both these lines on a cell, the
original cell color may be a light shade of purpose but after I set the color
to the same color, it is now a shade of gray! Why?
It looks like you might want to try the .Color property instead of .ColorIndex.

Try "Times New Roman" which would have the TrueType symbol on the left
when you choose a font.
"Times" would be a raster font.

I think the A2007 datasheets are cool. I really like the alternating row

make this happen?
With the form open in datasheet view, click the "Home" tab on the ribbon.
There is a tiny arrow at the bottom right of the Font pane, which launches
the datasheet formatting options. To save the formatting you need to save
the form while it is still in the datasheet view (although given your recent

AFIK, IDC_STATIC doesn't have anything to support this. If you
really wanted to, I suppose you could do it by subclassing the
control, but given the number of ActiveX controls that support this
more directly, I'm not sure why you would.
The universe is a figment of its own imagination.
