    This will compare Sheet1 to all other sheets in the same workbook.

    Surround your VBA code with CODE tags e.g.;
    [CODE]your VBA code here[/CODE]
    The # button in the forum editor will apply CODE tags around your selected text.

    Hello,
    thank you for the reply. I ran the macro, but none of the cells in column "A" highlighted green.

    Thank you

    It works for me. Did you change the code? Where did you paste the code? Do you have more than one workbook open?

    Re: Macro To Compare Sheets and Highlight Common

    Hello,
    I changed the code where you right click on the sheet and post the post and initiate by alt F8. I only have one workbook open with nine sheets. Column "A" on all sheets is the master. Just to verify, does it matter how many columns each sheet has filled?

    Thank you

    It does not matter how many columns each sheet has, but the code only looks for matches in column A. And to restate; it compares Sheet1 to all other sheets.

    The code should go into a standard code module e.g. Module1.
