Change row color based on cell value in Excel 2007 VBA

Hi all.

I have the code below that changes the color of a cell if it equals "SHEET". But I want to take it to the next level by highlighting the row from Column A to Column E. How can I do this?

Thank you in advance!
Dim rng2 As Long

With Worksheets("Sheet1")

    rng2 = .Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    .Range("I3:I" & rng2).NumberFormat = "$ 0.0000"
    .Range("D3:D" & rng2).Columns.AutoFit
    .Range("J3:J" & rng2).Columns.AutoFit
    .Range("K3:K" & rng2).Columns.AutoFit
    .Range("L3:L" & rng2).Columns.AutoFit
    Set MR = Range("J3:J" & rng2)
    For Each cell In MR
        If cell.Value = "SHEET" Or cell.Value = "Sheet" Then cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 36

End With

Try this

For Each cell In MR
        If cell.Value = "SHEET" Or cell.Value = "Sheet" Then cell.offset(,-9).resize(,5).Interior.ColorIndex = 36

Or fractionally shorter:
For Each cell In MR
    If UCase(cell.Value) = "SHEET" Then cell.Offset(, -9).Resize(, 5).Interior.ColorIndex = 36
