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
