Column and Row Viewing Help

Posted by Matthew R. Moffat on January 05, 2002 1:07 PM

Is there any way or utility available that will highlight the row and column as I move around the Excel grid? For example if I am in G17 I want Excel to highlight column G and row 17 instead of just G and 17 at the top and side of the column/row. This is helpful if you are using a small font or low magnification and have to validate values in other column of that same row.

Right click on your sheet tab, left click on View Code, and paste this into the module:

Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = -4142
Target.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
Target.EntireColumn.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
End Sub

It will hilite the row and column you are in, with a shade of blue.
