    Question For each instance of word in string

    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to loop though the characters of a cell's value looking for a word, once the word is found I want to change its font colour

    I am using the Instr function to find the first instance of a word, however I wish to colour EVERY instance of the word in the string.

    How do you loop through each found instance?

    What I am currently using finds the first instance correctly:

    This is the routine that I came up with to do one cell.
    You have to adjust ACell and SubString to what you are working on.
    Remove the two vbTextCompare if you want the test to be case sensitive.
