Hello,

in Excel 2010 you could select all cells in the first sheet, then add a conditional format with a formula

=A1<>PMICHLAUWEB57!A1

select a format and hit OK. The result would look like this

compare
In earlier versions of Excel, you cannot refer to other sheets in a conditional formatting formula, though.

cheers, teylyn

Hello,

In Excel 2003, you can do this:

- Select cell A1 in the second sheet (you need to select A1, or it will not work!!!)
- click Insert > Names > Define
- in the Names box enter the name CompareRange
- in the Refers to box enter

=PMICHLAUWEB57!A1

Note that there are no $ signs in that reference. It is (and must be) a relative reference.

On the first sheet, select A1, then extend your selection to include all your data, click Format > Conditional Formatting > Formula Is and enter the formula

=CompareRange<>A1

Select a format and hit OK.

Now all cells that are not the same as their counterpart on the other sheet will be highlighted.

see attached.

cheers, teylyn
