Conditional formatting is your friend here. Highlight J1:R4 and add a new conditional formatting rule based on the following formula:

Code:
=COUNTIF($A$1:$I$1,J1)>0
Set the format to be green background fill.

Thanks. Yes your formula works in this case only if I use a single row $A$1:$I$1 in this case. If I want to use more rows, I think it won't be practical. Is there a formula for this kind of task that I can copy and paste across ?

Just extend the first parameter to the range where you might type values. E.g.

Code:
=COUNTIF($A$1:$I$4,J1)>0
