I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You may try something like this...

Sub HighlightColumnB()
Dim sws As Worksheet, dws As Worksheet
Dim lr As Long
Dim rng As Range, cell As Range

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

Set sws = Sheets("Sheet1")
Set dws = Sheets("Sheet2")

lr = sws.Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp).Row

If lr < 2 Then
    MsgBox "There is no data in column B on " & sws.Name & " Sheet.", vbExclamation
    Exit Sub
End If

Set rng = sws.Range("B2:B" & lr)
rng.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone

For Each cell In rng
    If Application.CountIf(dws.Columns(2), cell.Value) > 0 Then
        cell.Interior.Color = vbYellow
    End If
Next cell
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
