I would appreciate if I can get help in creating this macro. I have two workbooks, and want to compare the specific column from 1st workbook, Ex: Column H with next work book, Ex: column A. After comparison highlight the matching cells in 1st workbook.

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Hi Moorthy
an option is to add a column to the first workbook and put in
Excel Formula:
=ISNUMBER(MATCH(h1,[wb2.xlsx]Sheet1!$A:$A,0))
then use conditional formatting to highlight where this new column has true. If you want a macro because you want to do this often, you could probably record one.
I do this process quite frequently, it really is very quick.
