"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.

To apply conditional formatting as per your criteria, select the columns D:I and make a new rule for conditional formatting using the formula given below and set the format as per your choice.

=AND(D1<>"",COLUMN()=MATCH($D$4,$7:$7,0),ROW()>=MATCH("zzz",$C:$C)-2,ROW()<=MATCH("zzz",$C:$C))

Thanks Subodh,

In fact I wanted the solution without the macro which you have provided.

Thanks Shums, in case a requirement is there for a VBA solution, this will work fine.

Regards.
