Example , cell has this text

it is not Highlighting the Row.

Sub HighLight_Retrun_cells()
i = 2
For Each c In ActiveSheet.Range("E2:E" & Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)
    If Cells(i, 5) = "RETURN" Then
        Rng = "A" & i & ":" & "O" & i
        Range(Rng).Interior.ColorIndex = 6
    End If
    i = i + 1
    Next c
End Sub

Any help is appreciated.

Try this.
Sub HighLight_Retrun_cells()
Dim c As Range

    For Each c In Sheets("Detail").Range("E2:E" & Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)
        If c.Value Like "*RETURN*" Then
            c.Offset(, -4).Resize(, 15).Interior.ColorIndex = 6
        End If
    Next c

End Sub
