In this article, we will create a macro to highlight data for the defined date range.
Raw data consists of day-wise details of items sold by agents.
Specify the start and end date, before running the macro. The macro takes the value in cell H8 as the start date and value in H9 as the end date. Click on ‘Submit’ button to run the macro.
Data between the mentioned dates has been highlighted in yellow color.
We have created a “Marking” macro to highlight the data, based on the specified date range. This macro is linked to “Submit” button.
StartDate = Cells(8, 8).Value
EndDate = Cells(9, 8).Value
The above code is used to specify the start date and end date.
Set Source = Range(“A1:A” & LastRow)
The above code is used to initialize the source data range.
Set Start = Source.Find(CDate(StartDate), LookAt:=xlWhole)
The above code is used to find the first occurrence of specified date.
Range(Cells(Start.Row, 1), Cells(Off.Row, 3)).Select
The above code is used to select the defined range.
Selection.Interior.Color = RGB(255, 255, 0)
The above code is used to highlight the selected range in yellow color.
Please follow below for the code
