Hi
I am using the code given to me in a previous expert post  to change all cells
with the same value as the cell being changed.
How do I also change the formatting of all these changed cells (other than the target cell) to be the same
background color

Private PrevValue As Variant

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target.Column = 2 Then 'column B
        Application.EnableEvents = False
        Target.EntireColumn.Replace PrevValue, Target.Value, xlWhole
        PrevValue = Target.Value
        Application.EnableEvents = True
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    PrevValue = Target.Value
End Sub

I want the target cell to have a background color of orange and all the other cells to have no background color (ie set back to no color)

            .Pattern = xlNone
            .TintAndShade = 0
