    Excel Live VLookup Live in spreadsheet - Quick way to find them?

    Hello,

    I have an Excel spreadsheet with many tabs to which I vlookup information into, there are some active V Lookups within the spreadsheet but I cannot quickly find out where they are, is there any way of finding what cells these are in without having to search individually in the cells?

    Thanks

    The quickest way, without VBA is hold down Ctrl+ (next to the 1 key on your keyboard)

    This toggles formula view. You will be able to see the VLOOKUPS

    As part of good spreadsheet design think about highlighting formula cells, text cells, input constants etc... in different, but consistent, colours - then any workbook you open you will be to trace what the content is

    A VBA solution. Copy and paste the following code into a standard module:

    It will display all the cell addresses both in the Immediate Window (which you can copy and paste) and in a Message Box.
