    How to make importing matching serial numbers Highlight a line?

    Looking for some help?

    I have a spread sheet with approximately 500 line entries that include
    (Make, Model, Serial Number, etc..)

    I want to take my monthly list of serial numbers from another source
    and apply them to the current spreadsheet so that the line items would
    automatically light up “yellow” so to be easily recognized.

    I don’t want duplicate entries. I just want to make my monthly report
    serial numbers cause the master report to highlight those lines that match the serial numbers. (Would be nice if I could change the color as well for successive months)

    Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    To best describe or illustrate your problem you would be better off attaching a dummy workbook. The workbook should contain the same structure and some dummy data of the same type as the type you have in your real workbook - so, if a cell contains numbers & letters in this format abc-123 then that should be reflected in the dummy workbook.

    To attach a file to your post,
    click advanced (next to quick post),
    scroll down until you see "manage file",
    click that and select "add files" (top right corner).
    click "select files" find your file, click "open" click "upload" click 'done" bottom right. click "submit reply"

    Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window.
    You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.
