Hello
I need a macro that will filter on a field and highlight cells that have a value greater that 0 for specific cells. I have attached an example.  In the example the macro need to do the following:
1.Filter on the field titled "Paid", where the field "Paid" = Yes.  
2.Highlight the cells in blue where the values in the cells are greater than 0 for the columns with the titles (G1,G3,G5,G7)

Thanks

This should do the trick:

Sub FilterAndHilight()

    ActiveSheet.Range("$A:$L").AutoFilter Field:=4, Criteria1:="Yes"
    m = 8
    Do Until Cells(m, 1).Value = ""
        If Cells(m, 5).Value > 0 Then
            Cells(m, 5).Select
                With Selection.Interior
                    .Pattern = xlSolid
                    .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
                    .ThemeColor = xlThemeColorAccent1
                    .TintAndShade = 0.399975585192419
                    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
                End With
        Else
        End If
           If Cells(m, 7).Value > 0 Then
            Cells(m, 7).Select
                With Selection.Interior
                    .Pattern = xlSolid
                    .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
                    .ThemeColor = xlThemeColorAccent1
                    .TintAndShade = 0.399975585192419
                    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
                End With
        Else
        End If
        If Cells(m, 9).Value > 0 Then
            Cells(m, 9).Select
                With Selection.Interior
                    .Pattern = xlSolid
                    .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
                    .ThemeColor = xlThemeColorAccent1
                    .TintAndShade = 0.399975585192419
                    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
                End With
        Else
        End If
        If Cells(m, 11).Value > 0 Then
            Cells(m, 11).Select
                With Selection.Interior
                    .Pattern = xlSolid
                    .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
                    .ThemeColor = xlThemeColorAccent1
                    .TintAndShade = 0.399975585192419
                    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
                End With
        Else
        End If
        m = m + 1
    Loop
End Sub

Thanks...this is really good. This almost works.
However I have vlookups in each cell.  I need to highlight cells that have a value returned from the vlookup > 0.

Thanks again for your help.

which cells are your v-lookups in?  I opened up your sample sheet and do not see any formulas.  have you considered using Conditional Formatting?
