Create 1 form with MSFlexGrid, set

Name = MSFlexGrid1
Cols = 3
Rows = 5
SelectionMode = 1 - flexSelectionByRow

Add to Command box with name Command1 and Command2.

Then copy and paste this code and test it.
Private Sub Command1_Click()
 
For i = 1 To 2
    MSFlexGrid1.Col = i
    MSFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &HFFFF&
Next
End Sub
 
Private Sub Command2_Click()
For j = 1 To 4
    MSFlexGrid1.Row = j
    For i = 1 To 2
        MSFlexGrid1.Col = i
        MSFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &H80000005
    Next
Next
End Sub
 
Private Sub Form_Load()
 
MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(0, 1) = "Column A"
MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(0, 2) = "Column B"
 
For i = 1 To 4
    MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 1) = "ABC"
    MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 2) = "123"
Next
 
End Sub
 
Private Sub MSFlexGrid1_LostFocus()
For j = 1 To 4
    MSFlexGrid1.Row = j
    For i = 1 To 2
        MSFlexGrid1.Col = i
        MSFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &H80000005
    Next
Next
End Sub

You remove Command2 button, clear the code and paste the new one. How is it?
Dim currentrow As Integer
 
Private Sub Command1_Click()
currentrow = MSFlexGrid1.Row
 
For j = 1 To 4
    MSFlexGrid1.Row = j
    For i = 1 To 2
        MSFlexGrid1.Col = i
        MSFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &H80000005
    Next
Next
 
MSFlexGrid1.Row = currentrow
For i = 1 To 2
    MSFlexGrid1.Col = i
    MSFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &HFFFF&
Next
End Sub
 
Private Sub Form_Load()
 
MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(0, 1) = "Column A"
MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(0, 2) = "Column B"
 
For i = 1 To 4
    MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 1) = "ABC"
    MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 2) = "123"
Next
 
End Sub

i use the timer to check the flexgrid the record was in there..
if the record is there then i need to highligth it...

something like this...

if matrix.textmatrix(1,0) = "Employee Name" then
  'unhighlight the previous row

  'unhighlight the row in witch the Employee Name is found...

end if

You mean you want to compare the data between in flexgrid and your record in database?
If i'm correct maybe you don't need to use timer, just use "For" looping.

i used timer because the data on the database
has been changing from time to time..

yes, im using "For Loop" on finding the record
on the flexgrid...

Based on your explaination and my understanding, I've give you the sample code as below, hope this will help. I will going back to home right now and I will check back later when I arrived at home.
Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
 
'to unhighlight back all the data in the flexgrid
For j = 1 To MSFlexGrid1.Rows - 1  'number of flexgrid rows
    MSFlexGrid1.Row = j
    For i = 1 To MSFlexGrid1.Cols - 1   'number of flexgrid cols
        MSFlexGrid1.Col = i
        MSFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &H80000005    'paint white color
    Next
Next
 
'check each row if the data exist in database
For j = 1 To MSFlexGrid1.Rows - 1  'number of flexgrid rows
    MSFlexGrid1.Row = j
 
    'let say column 1 is for employee name
    'if employee name found, than highlight with yellow, if not, then the background remain white
    If MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(j,1) = "Employee Name" then  'Employee name get from database
        For i = 1 To MSFlexGrid1.Cols - 1   'number of flexgrid cols
            MSFlexGrid1.Col = i
            MSFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &HFFFF&   'highlight with yellow
        Next
    End If
 
Next
 
End Sub
