Default Cell text color vs cell background color

Hi to all
I have one column with a lot of rows with DIFFERENT background COLOR but text color is same for all which makes some of rows hard to read
(some rows background color and text color is almost the same)
Need vba code to change text color based on cell background color to be able to read text
different colors in rows are not conditional formatted
attached file shows different colors in column I-These are actually duplicates values
FYI-Colors are made by macro inserted in column M
i hope i made it clear enough to understand

There are 57 interior colors. I guess you could add or subtract some value. Even so, some colors with an offset won't have enough contrast. I would suggest making an array with 0 to 56 elements with offset values that looks right to you.

You might want to review what your interiorindex colors are using this code.
