    Conditional Formatting Bold based on words

    Hi, I want to use Conditional Formatting to show the words in bold if any of the following words are in the cell (see list below).

    Right now, I've created a rule per word. Which means I'm going to have 20+ rules for bolding text when all is said and done. Is there anyway to avoid that? Is there a performance hit to the spreadsheet by having so many conditional formatting rules?

    Words:

    metformin
    trulicity
    bydureon
    farxiga
    jardiance
    glimeperide
    glipizide
    januvia
    alogliptin

    statin
    atorvastatin
    lovastatin
    simvastatin
    pravastatin

    lisinopril
    losartan
    valsartan
    irbesartan

    Yes there would be a performance hit, CF can be very resource-intense.

    Try using MATCH() instead? If a match is found, it will trigger a TRUE, which will fire the CF rule
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
