Hi,

pls try
Sub macro()
For Each c In Range(Range("C2"), Range("C" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
    For Each c1 In Range(Range("B2"), Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
        If c1 Like "*" & c.Value & "*" Then
            pos = InStr(1, c1.Value, c.Value)
            Ln = Len(c.Value)
            With c
                .Font.Bold = True
                .Font.Color = vbRed
            End With
            With c1.Characters(pos, Ln)
                .Font.Bold = True
                .Font.Color = vbRed
            End With
            Range("D" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1) = c1.Row
            Exit For
        End If
    Next

Hello  Rgonzo1971,
Thank you very much.
it worked.
the only thing (which is my fault, I didn't add to the sample file), if the tracking number was found on multiple lines.
is it possible to show both lines it's found on.

Also,
when I run the sub more than once, the line numbers keep showing for empty cells.

Sample attached.
Thanks again.
