    VBA For filling in records in excel with a color based on a number

    I have a command button that I've coded on an access form that opens and creates an excel document. In Column C I have values in each cell.

    I need to write something that colors everything to the right based on the value in that cell.

    IF C3 > 7 Then color everything to right green, IF C3 is Between 0 and 7 then color everything to the right yellow, if C3 is <= 0 then color everything to the right Red.

    I will need this to loop through the column until it hits an empty cell.

    Here is some code that I modified that should do what your looking for, or at least point you in the right direction.

    With .Range("C3:C" & i).FormatConditions.Add(xlCellValue, xlGreater, 7) 
        .Interior.Color = RGB(157, 255, 157) 
        .Font.Color = RGB(157, 255, 255) 'green
    End With 
    With .Range("C3:C" & i).FormatConditions.Add(xlCellValue, xlBetween, 0, 7) 
        .Interior.Color = RGB(255, 255, 0) 
        .Font.Color = RGB(255, 255, 0) 'Yellow
    End With 
    With .Range("C3:C" & i).FormatConditions.Add(xlCellValue, xlLessEqual, 0) 
        .Interior.Color = RGB(255, 53, 53) 
        .Font.Color = RGB(255, 53, 53) 'red
    End With

    I don't like using RGB values in Excel Cells. Results can be unexpected. This code run on an empty sheet will list all the Excel Colors and their Indices.
    Option Explicit 
    Sub ListColorIndices() 
        Dim i As Long 
        With ActiveSheet 
            Range("A1") = " Color " 
            Range("B1") = "ColorIndex" 
            With Range("A1:B1") 
                .Font.Bold = True 
            End With 
            For i = 1 To 56 
                With Cells(i + 1, "A") 
                    .Interior.ColorIndex = i 
                    .Offset(, 1).Value = i 
                End With 
        End With 
    End Sub
