    Cool Conditional Formatting - Highlight Row based on Duplicates in different columns

    Hi, Thanks for any help in advance,

    I have attached an example sheet of how I would like it to work (if its possible) - i have colored the cells to show the desired effect of the conditional formatting but there are no formulas in place.

    what im trying to get is this - I want to highlight a row of data that contains duplicates in separate columns/tables, so columns A-D is a table of client information, column E is blank and column F is copied & pasted data from another sheet of Client ID's i've already checked off. so i would like the client ID numbers to trigger a duplicate conditional formatting and highlight the rows duplicates are in so I can tell which ID's i have already checked from a crossover sheet.

    I dont use VBA so if there are any formulas for this would be so very helpful!!

    Yes thats Perfect, though i did change the formula to - =COUNTIF($F:$F,$C1)>0 as that suited me not worrying about numbers of cells and doing the whole columns instead.

    Thanks Ever so for your help Fotis!! a masterstroke of excel usage.

    Thanks Again buddy
