I have to send workbooks off to managers in different departments and in each workbook, the managers might amend/change certain fields. The fields are not necessarily the same all the time, for example:

Manager 1 - Changes 3 fields in column A, 2 fields in column M and nothing on the rest of the sheet

Manager 2 - Changes 1 field in columns C - F, 5 fields in column J and 7 fields in column Y

Manager 3 - Changes 2 fields in column A, 4 fields in column B and nothing on the rest of the sheet

So I have a macro I am using in another workbook that will compare an 'original' version of a workbook with an 'updated' version but it only looks for differences in one specific column - so perhaps I could modify that macro to accomplish this task.

Here is the link to the macro I am referring to:

I was however wondering, is there no kind of conditional formatting rule that can be applied to the workbooks - BEFORE they are sent to the managers - that highlights a row when a value in that row has been changed and changes the colour of the text in that cell? If there is even something like that which exists...

Hi,

I wouldn’t use another workbook.

COPY the SHEET and name it Review, for instance.

Then HIDE the original sheet.

Given that the original (hidden) sheet name is Original, in the Review sheet:

Select the Used Range. The TOP LEFT cell in my selection is A2.

Open the CF Wizard

Use a formula to determine which cell to format

=A2<>Original!A2

...and select a FORMAT.
