    VBA Code for highlighting cells if it appears elsewhere

    Guys,

    Need a bit of code help. I want to change the colour of a cell in column A of sheet 2, if it appears in column C of sheet 1.

    Can any VB smart folks out there help out?

    Cheers.

    Hi Millz, it seems to work but if the cell in sheet 1 is removed, the formatting in sheet 2 remains? Is there a way that if the number in sheet 1 is removed it will revert back to the original formatting i.e. un-highlighted? cheers

    Do you want it reverted automatically or by running the macro again?

    If running the macro a second time is fine, simply add this:

    Thats works great thanks. My first real exposure to this, so apologies if a silly question, but rather than associating it to a macro and running that, is there a way to have it always running on the workbook?

    Cheers either way!

    Place this in Sheet1's code:

    Place this in Sheet2's code:
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    and then the macro in a module:

    The first 2 code will then trigger the macro whenever data is changed in those specific columns.

    Also note that doing it this way will also make your workbook become macro-enabled workbook, and will require you to allow macros to run before it would work.

    Why not conditional formatting?
