Default Select fill colors in a workbook, change to another color


Hi. I would like to ask help for a code that selects all fill colors RGB (220, 230, 241) in a workbook saved as "ALL FUNDS DECEMBER 2022.xlsm" then change them to RGB (253, 233, 217).
Every year, I change the fill colors that I use in our agency's annual finance reports and supporting schedules and there were more than 100 cells/range to change.
Thank you.

It would be a lot faster to customise the color palette and apply that to your cells. In the future you just change the color in the palette.

This macro has two parts. The first part is searching all cells to find the RGB values and assign the first accent color. The final line changes the accent color in the palette.
Code:
Sub RecolorMe()
  Dim iCol As Long, aCell As Range, aWS As Worksheet
  For Each aWS In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
    For Each aCell In aWS.UsedRange.Cells
      If aCell.Interior.Color = RGB(220, 230, 241) Then
        aCell.Interior.ThemeColor = xlThemeColorAccent1
      End If
    Next aCell
  Next aWS
  
  'Change the theme color
  ActiveWorkbook.Theme.ThemeColorScheme.Colors(msoThemeAccent1) = RGB(253, 233, 217)
End Sub

Thank you Andrew. I spent the whole weekend manually changing the colors. I will paste code in the 2023 monthly reports and I will get back to this thread on how it goes.

You can do this for the whole workbook in about 10 lines of VBA, but there's a catch.
Here's the code:
Code:
Sub blah()
With Application
  .ReplaceFormat.Clear
  .FindFormat.Clear
  .FindFormat.Interior.Color = RGB(220, 230, 241)
  .FindFormat.Locked = True
  .FindFormat.FormulaHidden = False
  .ReplaceFormat.Interior.Color = RGB(253, 233, 217)
  Cells.Replace What:="", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=True, ReplaceFormat:=True, FormulaVersion:=xlReplaceFormula2
  .ReplaceFormat.Clear
  .FindFormat.Clear
End With
End Sub
Now for the catch. The above code will either work on just the active sheet, or the whole workbook, and which it does is dependent on the last setting used in the find (or find and replace) dialogue box for the field Within:.
This setting is only reset when Excel is closed down and restarted where it takes on the Sheet value in that field (or when someone changes it and executes a find in the normal user interface). Otherwise, it remembers what the setting used was.
So the trick is to execute a Find using the Workbook setting in that dialogue before running the code:

2023-01-24_200318.png

There is no known vba code/argument for setting that.

Then run the code on that workbook. All the appropriate cells' colours should change.

  ActiveWorkbook.Theme.ThemeColorScheme.Colors(msoThemeAccent1) = RGB(253, 233, 217)

Andrew, I tried this code and it works but it keeps on running unless Esc is pressed. A debug error appears on the "End If" line. Thank you.

Thank you for the code p45cal and the screenshot of the Find/workbook setting. Had there been no picture, I wouldn't have understood your next instructions about "within worbkbook."
The code perfectly works in all the sheets except from some random cells that had not changed colors. I'm trying to find the cause of the different result.

I cleared all the formats of the rebel cells then ran the code and got the right color. Yay. Thank you.
