Hello,



Here is what I am trying to create and I am running into some trouble. Maybe someone could help me out with this.

Is there a way when I change a cell to a specific color (for example: change cell to yellow) to have it automatically appear in one of the other worksheets in the file?

I have orders that if they are not filled on a certain day I have to manually copy paste over 10 columns to another worksheet (to designate that it is over due I change the color once pasted due) to get them sent out to the responsible party to be taken care of.

I have tried using conditional formatting and other visual basic codes on other blogs to try and find out how, but I have had no luck.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Change of color, would not trigger any event or at least not that I can think of. Since you say that orders that are past due it seems that there must be a date column past which an order is considered to be late. You can leverage that column to paste it to other sheet

Once they are past due I have them change to yellow. I want the yellow colored line items to automatically move to another worksheet in the file. This is where my problem lies.

just by looking at the data, how do you know if some thing i spast duie or not

Again as I said that in the data there must be some thing that lets you know if an order is past due or not. When you color a cell, there must a a logic, You have to translate that logic into code. If some one just tells you that just color rows 5,11, 34 etc, and you do it, then again you can write those row numbers in an other sheet and have a macro execute it.

Could you please upload a sample EXCEL file WITH sample data, macro, formula , conditional formatting etc on some shared site like https://authentification.site , http://docs.google.com, http://wikisend.com/ , http://www.editgrid.com etc and post back here the link to allow better understanding of how it is now and how you foresee. Based on the sample book, could you re-explain your problem too
