    Sure.
    This code will highlight a selected cell within range "Sixty" - when a selection is made outside that range, the previous selection remains highlighted:

    And this version will highlight a selected cell within range "Sixty" - when a selection is made outside that range, the previous highlight is cleared:

    Ran into a problem if a cell is merged,would there be a work around for this . Say cell B2 &B3 get merged. It would still highlight the merged cells?
