    Highlight cell if it appears on another sheet?

    Hi Guys, I hope you can help.

    I have a list of numbers in one sheet which I would like to highlight if they appear in a range of cells on another sheet?

    Someone came up with a great solution which was: =ISNUMBER(MATCH("*"&D5&"*",'Sheet 2'!$C$4:$C$6,0))

    The only issue is that when it's just a single number in the reference table e.g. "XX" instead of "XX, XX" it doesn't work? - See sheet attached - 75 is showing as FALSE?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, James

    Thanks Jose,

    That worked but it's making the file really heavy. 10-15 second delay anytime i change anything.

    Is there another solution or a workaround?

    Thanks, James

    Not sure why you started a new thread, rather than continuing in your existing thread, but try this in F5 (or G5 in your latest file):

    =IF(ISNUMBER(MATCH("*"&D5&"*",'Sheet 2'!$C$4:$C$7,0)),TRUE,ISNUMBER(MATCH(D5,'Sheet 2'!$C$4:$C$7,0)))

    then copy down.

    Hope this helps.

    Pete
