FormatCondition Object

Office 2007
Represents a conditional format.

Remarks

The FormatCondition object is a member of the FormatConditions collection. The FormatConditions collection can now contain more than three conditional formats for a given range.

Use the Add method to create a new conditional format. If a range has mulitple formats, you can use the Modify method to change one of the formats, or you can use the Delete method to delete a format and then use the Add method to create a new format.

Use the Font, Borders, and Interior properties of the FormatCondition object to control the appearance of formatted cells. Some properties of these objects aren’t supported by the conditional format object model. Some of the properties that can be used with conditional formatting are listed in the following table.
