        Select Case a
            Case 1
                SetUpIconSet(b, xl3Arrows)
            Case 2
                SetUpIconSet(b, xl3ArrowsGray)
            Case 3
                SetUpIconSet(b, xl3Flags)
            Case 4
                SetUpIconSet(b, xl3Signs)

' Reverse the order on this one:
                SetUpIconSet(b, xl4ArrowsGray, True)
            Case 13
                SetUpIconSet(b, xl4CRV)
            Case 14
                SetUpIconSet(b, xl4RedToBlack)

                SetUpIconSet(b, xl4TrafficLights)
            Case 16
                SetUpIconSet(b, xl5Arrows)
            Case 17
' Reverse the order on this one:

            Case 18
                SetUpIconSet(b, xl5Boxes)
            Case 19
                SetUpIconSet(b, xl5CRV)
            Case 20                SetUpIconSet(b, xl5Quarters)
    Next a


Function SetupRange(col As IntegerAs Range

    ' Set up ranges, filled with numbers from 1 to 10.

    b = Range(Cells(1, col), Cells(10, col))
    Dim c As Range
    c = Cells(1, col)
    c.Value = 1
    Dim d As Range
    d = Cells(2, col)
    d.Value = 2

    Range(c, d).AutoFill(Destination:=b)
    SetupRange = b

End Function

Sub SetUpIconSet(b As Range, iconSet As XlIconSet, Optional ReverseOrder As Boolean = False)

    ' Set up an icon set for the supplied range.

    Dim isc As IconSetCondition
    isc = b.FormatConditions.AddIconSetCondition
    With isc

        ' If specified, show the icons in the reverse ordering:

        .ReverseOrder = ReverseOrder
        .ShowIconOnly = 

        ' Select the requested icon set:

        .iconSet = ActiveWorkbook.IconSets(iconSet)
