Hoe cellen tellen en optellen op basis van achtergrondkleur in Excel?

Stel dat je een reeks cellen hebt met verschillende achtergrondkleuren, zoals rood, groen, blauw enzovoort, maar nu moet je tellen hoeveel cellen in dat bereik een bepaalde achtergrondkleur hebben en de gekleurde cellen met dezelfde bepaalde kleur optellen . In Excel is er geen directe formule om de som en het aantal kleurcellen te berekenen, hier zal ik u enkele manieren voorstellen om dit probleem op te lossen.


Tel en som gekleurde cellen op door Filter en SUBTOTAAL

Stel dat we een fruitverkooptabel hebben zoals hieronder afgebeeld, en we zullen de gekleurde cellen in de kolom Bedrag tellen of optellen. In deze situatie kunnen we de kolom Bedrag op kleur filteren en vervolgens eenvoudig gefilterde gekleurde cellen tellen of optellen met de functie SUBTOTAAL in Excel.

1. Selecteer lege cellen om de functie SUBTOTAAL in te voeren.

  1. Voer de formule in om alle cellen met dezelfde achtergrondkleur te tellen = SUBTOTAAL (102, E2: E20);
  2. Voer de formule in om alle cellen met dezelfde achtergrondkleur bij elkaar op te tellen = SUBTOTAAL (109, E2: E20);


Opmerking:: In beide formules is E2: E20 de kolom Bedrag die de gekleurde cellen bevat, en u kunt deze naar behoefte wijzigen.

2. Selecteer de koptekst van de tabel en klik op Data > Filteren. Zie screenshot:

3. Klik op het filterpictogram  in de koptekstcel van de kolom Bedrag en klik op Filter op kleur en de gespecificeerde kleur die u achtereenvolgens telt. Zie screenshot:

Na het filteren tellen en tellen beide SUBTOTAAL-formules automatisch alle gefilterde kleurcellen in de kolom Bedrag. Zie screenshot:

Opmerking:: Deze methode vereist dat de gekleurde cellen die u gaat tellen of optellen zich in dezelfde kolom bevinden.

Eén klik om gekleurde cellen in Excel te tellen, optellen en gemiddeld te maken

Met het uitstekende Tel op kleur kenmerk van Kutools for Excel, kunt u snel cellen tellen, optellen en gemiddeld op basis van de opgegeven vulkleur of lettertypekleur met slechts één klik in Excel. Bovendien zal deze functie ook de max- en min-waarden van cellen achterhalen aan de hand van de vulkleur of letterkleur. Gratis proefperiode van 30 dagen met volledige functionaliteit!

Tel of som gekleurde cellen op met de GET.CELL-functie

In deze methode maken we een benoemd bereik met de GET.CELL-functie, halen we de kleurcode van cellen op en tellen of optellen we eenvoudig met de kleurcode in Excel. Ga als volgt te werk:

1. Klikken Formules > Definieer naam. Zie screenshot:

2. Voer in het dialoogvenster Nieuwe naam de onderstaande schermafbeelding uit:
(1) Typ een naam in het vak Naam;
(2) Voer de formule in = GET.CELL (38, Blad4! $ E2) in het vak Verwijst naar (nota: in de formule, 38 betekent de celcode teruggeven, en Blad4! $ E2 is de eerste cel in de kolom Bedrag, behalve de kolomkop die u moet wijzigen op basis van uw tabelgegevens.)
(3) Klik op het OK knop.

3. Voeg nu een nieuwe kleurkolom toe aan de originele tabel. Typ vervolgens de formule = NumColor en sleep de AutoFill-hendel om de formule toe te passen op andere cellen in de kolom Kleur. Zie screenshot:
Opmerking:: In de formule, NumColor is het benoemde bereik dat we in de eerste 2 stappen hebben gespecificeerd. U moet het wijzigen in de opgegeven naam die u instelt.

Nu keert de kleurcode van elke cel in de kolom Bedrag terug in de kolom Kleur. Zie screenshot:

4. Kopieer en vermeld de vulkleur in een leeg bereik in het actieve werkblad en typ formules ernaast zoals onderstaand screenshot:
A. Voer de formule in om cellen op kleur te tellen = AANTAL.ALS ($ F $ 2: $ F $ 20, NumColor);
B. Voer de formule in om cellen op kleur op te tellen = SUMIF ($ F $ 2: $ F $ 20, NumColor, $ E $ 2: $ E $ 20).

Opmerking:: In beide formules, $ F $ 2: $ F $ 20 is de kolom Kleur, NumColor is het opgegeven benoemde bereik, $ E $ 2: $ E $ 20 is de kolom Bedrag en u kunt deze naar behoefte wijzigen.

Nu ziet u dat de cellen in de kolom Bedrag worden geteld en opgeteld op basis van hun vulkleuren.


Tel en som cellen op basis van specifieke vulkleur met door de gebruiker gedefinieerde functie

Stel dat de gekleurde cellen zich verspreiden in een bereik zoals hieronder afgebeeld, kunnen beide bovenstaande methoden de gekleurde cellen niet tellen of optellen. Hier introduceert deze methode een VBA om het probleem op te lossen.

1. Houd de ALT + F11 toetsen, en het opent de Microsoft Visual Basic voor toepassingen venster.

2. Klikken Invoegen > Moduleen plak de volgende code in het modulevenster.

VBA: tel en som cellen op basis van achtergrondkleur:

Function ColorFunction(rColor As Range, rRange As Range, Optional SUM As Boolean)
Dim rCell As Range
Dim lCol As Long
Dim vResult
lCol = rColor.Interior.ColorIndex
If SUM = True Then
For Each rCell In rRange
If rCell.Interior.ColorIndex = lCol Then
vResult = WorksheetFunction.SUM(rCell, vResult)
End If
Next rCell
Else
For Each rCell In rRange
If rCell.Interior.ColorIndex = lCol Then
vResult = 1 + vResult
End If
Next rCell
End If
ColorFunction = vResult
End Function

3. Sla vervolgens de code op en pas de volgende formule toe:
A. Tel de gekleurde cellen: = kleurfunctie (A, B: C, FALSE)
B. Tel de gekleurde cellen op: = kleurfunctie (A, B: C, TRUE)

Opmerking: in bovenstaande formules, A is de cel met de specifieke achtergrondkleur waarvan u het aantal en de som wilt berekenen, en B: C is het celbereik waar u het aantal en de som wilt berekenen.

4. Neem bijvoorbeeld de volgende schermafbeelding, voer de formule in= kleurfunctie (A1, A1: D11, FALSE) om de gele cellen te tellen. En gebruik de formule = kleurfunctie (A1, A1: D11, TRUE) om de gele cellen op te tellen. Zie screenshot:

5. Als je andere gekleurde cellen wilt tellen en optellen, herhaal dan stap 4. Dan krijg je de volgende resultaten:

    Is there a way to count different color backgrounds from conditional formatting? The current code as of 7/14/2020 counts them all as default yellow or not at all.

      Hi Dusty,
      You can try the Count by Color feature of Kutools for Excel. This feature will help you quickly calculate (count, sum, average, etc.) cells by cell background color or font color, no matter they are formatted by conditional formatting or solidly format.

      kellytte · 1 years ago
      Hi Natasha,
      VBA is good but hard to apply. But below methods may solve your work easily too.
      Method 1: Use Find & Replace feature to select and statistic the color cells
      (1) Press Ctrl + H keys to open the Find and Replace dialog, and then enable the Find tab.
      (2) In the dialog, click Options to show advanced find options.
      (3) Then click Format > Choose Format From Cell, and select one of the specified color cells.
      (4) Click Find All. Now all cells with the same fill color are found out and listed at the bottom of the dialog.
      (5) Select one of found cells, and press Ctrl + A to select all found cells, so that these cells are selected in the worksheet.
      (6) Now you can get the count, average, sum, min, max, etc. of these cells in the task bar.
      Note: If a certain statistic result cannot be found one the taskbar, you can right click the task bar, and then tick the specified item to show it.

      Method 2: Kutools for Excel
      Kutools for Excel supports 30-day free trial. Therefore, you can download it and try its Count by color feature to solve your problem with several clicks only.

    I was experiencing issues when attempting to use this function as-is to count/sum the lighter (pastel?) colors, at least in Excel 2016. Some debugging led me to realize that the range of "ColorIndex" values is quite limited, and the function above fails to distinguish between light yellow and light orange, reading both as ColorIndex = 19.

    Using the "Color" attribute, instead (as in "lCol = rColor.Interior.Color" and the two instances of "If rCell.Interior.Color = lCol Then", per the sample code above), resolved the issue.

    kelli.crook9@gmail.com · 3 years ago
    this doesn't work if you change the colors in the cells: so if you change yellow to red or yellow to blank, it doesn't change the count. if you add/create new colored cells then yes it updates the count, but if you change the color of a cell that has already been counted, then the count will not update.

      Tim · 3 years ago
      Luisa,
      When you open VBA, you have VBAProject (sheet1) its the place for makros for THIS SHEET. But you also have VBA Projects (PERSONAL.XLSB). Add module in PERSONAL and paste this makro there. This way you will have function avialable in every file on your computer.
      Im not sure but probably you dont have this PRESONAL.XLSB automaticly, you need to create it.
      Probably not the the fastest way but : click record macro, window will apear where you put name (whatever), shortcut (whatever) and place to store makro (chose personal macros sheet). Click ok, record any makro (puting 1 in cell A1), stop recording. Now you should have PERSONAL.XLSB in the list.
      Hope it works and helps :)

    This doesn't differentiate between similar colours, so I changed it so it calls the HEX value of the colour instead:

    Function ColorFunction(rColor As Range, rRange As Range, Optional SUM As Boolean) As Variant
    Dim rCell As Range
    Dim lCol As Variant
    Dim vResult As Variant
    lCol = rColor.Interior.Color
    If SUM = True Then
    For Each rCell In rRange
    If rCell.Interior.Color = lCol Then
    vResult = WorksheetFunction.SUM(rCell, vResult)
    End If
    Next rCell
    Else For Each rCell In rRange
    If rCell.Interior.Color = lCol Then
    vResult = 1 + vResult
    End If
    Next rCell
    End If
    ColorFunction = vResult
    End Function

    Just remember when applying the formula that A cell of the colour you are looking for and B:C is the range to look in. Also, remember that excel can sometimes not auto-update any change to the cell so you might have to manually do it (or write a function ;-)

    Please help, why do some of my numbers come out correct and some do not? Maybe two out of the 6 will be inccorect because its adding a different number from a different color.

      Change everything that says ".colorindex" to ".color"

      .ColorIndex only supports 256 Colours. And will round similar colours together essentuially.

    Hello,

    The above function works only if the all the coloured cells are in single sheet .
    I am unable to perform the colorfunction sum if the coloured cells are in different sheets.
    Any help around this.

    EX;- Trying to consolidate the sum of coloured cells in a Master sheet it says #VALUE

    Hi,

    Is there any way to change the code so that instead of calculating a SUM when set to TRUE, it will count the number of cells with numbers or text in?? Ideally I would like if it could count a number over 10,000, but just the COUNT function would be great. I have tried simply changing SUM in the code to COUNT, but it doesn't work.

    Any help would be great

    It's not working for me. I'm running Excel 2013 but I keep getting the Ambiguous name detected: colorfunction.
    Is there a way to fix this?

    Hi,

    Works Great. Needed a small tweak though. I have some colored empty cells which are also getting counted right now. How can i ignore those cells?

    Thanks

    Your code works really well. Thanks. Can you now please help to alter the function of colorfunction so horizontally merged cell is counted as one? I am using the following function:
    Function ColorFunction(rColor As Range, rRange As Range, Optional SUM As Boolean)
    Dim rCell As Range
    Dim lCol As Long
    Dim vResult
    lCol = rColor.Interior.ColorIndex
    If SUM = True Then
    For Each rCell In rRange
    If rCell.Interior.ColorIndex = lCol Then
    vResult = WorksheetFunction.SUM(rCell, vResult)
    End If
    Next rCell
    Else
    For Each rCell In rRange
    If rCell.Interior.ColorIndex = lCol Then
    vResult = 1 + vResult
    End If
    Next rCell
    End If
    ColorFunction = vResult
    End Function

    Thanks!

    I have enabled macros to count cell colors. How do add another criteria for text? Lets say I have checked a range and recieved the count for cells that are green. How do I also check how many of those had "D" as text?

    thanks!
