I want Excel to tell me all occurence (I do not want a count or number. I want Excel to color the cell) if it "contains" xyz condition. For example, I want to Excel to search for "976" regardless of position. For 914-976-1212, the answer will be yes. For 212-567-9764, again, the answer is yes. P.S. The spreadsheet contains over 60,000 numbers which made checking by viewing very cumberome.
