Hello Experts Exchange users and life savers. I have this code that works with other colors and wanted to add other function, but with same concept.

Search for a letter on the (H column) being "L" & "Z"
Display them with these colors
***"L" = Mid Light Red
***"Z" = Mid Light Blue
But when click even if it is highlighted with the color given
Show yellow on top of it.

Thanks for your time and help guys.
