    Red face Macro that highlights cells in one column that do not exist in another similar column

    I have a file with 2 columns that are around 7000 cells long and contain mostly the same information. I want to make the cells on one column that do not exist on the other column yellow. Also, these sheets are on separate sheets so I think I have to use a sheet variable(?).

    The one I want to have cells that turn yellow is column F on sheet 4 and the one I want to compare it with is sheet 3 row E. I made and uploaded a test file with with the exact sheets/row. So with this file I need a macro that will turn the cells that aren't on the column on the third sheet E but are on the fourth sheet F turn yellow.

    I would greatly appreciate any type of help. Thank you.

    You don't actually need a macro for this - Conditional Formatting can be used to highlight cells whose value does not appear in another list using a formula -

    =COUNTIF(Sheet3!$E$1:$E$10, F1) = 0

    Add that to the Conditional Formatting rules for cell F1 on sheet4, set the formatting/background as you want and then Copy/PasteSpecial/Formats over the range you need.

    Accepting I do not know exactly how your worksheet is processed this may not be suitable for you but inbuilt Excel functions are much faster than any VBA code...
