Hello,

I need to perform a vlookup and find a value within an array and if "true" then the value cell should be auto-formatted (i.e. highlight yellow).  How can I accomplish this?  The attached provides a basic example to work off of.  Thank you.

Select the column C range and go to Home|Conditional Formatting|New Rule

Then select "use a formula to determine which cells to format"

Then enter formula:

=MATCH(C1,$A$1:$A$9,0)

Click format and choose yellow from Fill tab.
