The football kit spreadsheet in the workbook above has a serious error in it:

Excel VBA Macros exercise - Looping over collections (image 1)

A clue - the team strip is not red ...

Using the hints below, write a macro which loops over all of the cells in the range shown, changing any green cells to the team colour of your choice (please assume that your team has the same colour shirt as socks for the purposes of this example).

The method you should use is:

  • Loop through all the cells in the range of cells from B4:L22 (say)
  • For each cell, test whether its Interior.Color property equals RGB(0,128,0) (which happens to be the shade of green shown)
  • If it does, change it to a colour of your choice (see hint below)

For this exercise you will need to know that Manchester United play in a shade of red which can be approximated by the colour RGB(255,0,0).

Save this workbook as Definitely not blue, and close it down.
