Is there a way make any duplicate cell in a column change to red font? Somehow I want Excel to highlight or show me any duplicate values. Thanks!

See here: https://office.microsoft.com/en-001/excel-help/find-duplicate-values-fast-by-applying-conditional-formatting-HA102809491.aspx

Quote from that page:

1. Select the range of cells you think might contain duplicates.
2. On the Home tab, click Conditional Formatting > Highlight Cells Rules > Duplicate Values.
3. In the Duplicate Values box, make sure that Duplicate is selected in the first drop-down box.
4.Then select the format for duplicate values in the other drop-down box. Click OK.

All the duplicate numbers or text are highlighted.

HTH,
Dan
