Is there a way to make the cell that you have selected become highlighted while its selected? like yellow or red?

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

Hi there,

I dont' think you can do this with CF easily, but you can with code, assuming there is no other code in that worksheet module and you do not have any other colors you want to mess with.

Right click your worksheet tab and select View Code, paste this on the right...

Code:
Option Explicit

Private rngPrevious As Range

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Not rngPrevious Is Nothing Then rngPrevious.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
    Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
    Set rngPrevious = Target
End Sub
