Hey guys, I was wondering if there is way (without using VBA) to highlight a cell if the formula within the cell has been deleted.

I am using VLOOKUPS to post data from a separate worksheet but there are cases in which I need to add data manually. So i would like to highlight the cell to remind me.

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN
Although using the Excel 4 macro GET.CELL isn't VBA, you will still have to save the workbook as an xlsm to use it.

Since xlsm didn't exist prior to that, that's quite right. Saved in an xls, you will still have to enable Excel 4 macros.

Hmm.. It works but it highlights the data with formulas and I do not understand how this solution works the way it does.
Ok, so you just need to reverse the logical test.

Try it like this:

=IsFormula=FALSE
