HIghlight Rows in Excel based on Cursor location

Is there a way to highlight the row the cursor is on in Excel so that it makes it easier to know which row you are on?

Hi,

Here are a two more possibilities:

Chip Pearson's addin looks good: http://www.cpearson.com/excel/RowLiner.htm 

John McGimpsey has alternative code (copy & paste into your project in the VBE) http://www.mcgimpsey.com/excel/highlightrow.html 

However I think that both of these will disable your ability to "Undo" in excel.

Hi,

Another one.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    
    '// Developed by Kris @ ExcelFox.com
    
    Dim x, nmRow    As Name
    
    'if A1 holds '0', the macro won't fire
    If Me.Range("A1") = 0 Then Exit Sub 'adjust the flag cell
        
    On Error Resume Next
    Set nmRow = ThisWorkbook.Names("tRow")
    On Error GoTo 0
    
    Const HighlightColor As Long = 6750207

    If nmRow Is Nothing Then
        Set nmRow = ThisWorkbook.Names.Add("tRow", Target.Row & "|" & Target.EntireRow.Interior.Color, 0)
        Target.EntireRow.Interior.Color = HighlightColor
    Else
        x = Split(Evaluate("tRow"), "|")
        Me.Rows(CLng(x(0))).Interior.Color = IIf(CLng(x(1)) = 16777215, -4142, CLng(x(1)))
        nmRow.RefersTo = Target.Row & "|" & Target.EntireRow.Interior.Color
        Target.EntireRow.Interior.Color = HighlightColor
    End If

End Sub
