What column has the values you want to check?
What range do you want to highlight?
What is the value?

The colum is "B", three seperate values, CAM - HUSE - VDR.

Select the range of cells you want this to work on & use this formula
=OR($B2="CAM",$B2="VDR",$B2="HUSE")
Assumes that the first row selected above is row2
