VBA Formatting

Hi Everyone,
I am new to this, but I have high hopes that someone out there can help me format through VBA.

I need to know how to write the code so that I can find key names in my worksheets and the rows/columns that contain these key names will be formatted. I need the rows Bolded, Bordered, and Colored.

I was thinking of setting up a list and then using like a VLOOKUP to find the key names and then use the code to auto-format.

Any help will be much appreciated!

Hi bmontes, and welcome to the this community!

This can be done with Conditional formatting, without using VBA code,
but it could be done with VBA either.

May you show sample of your sheet and what key names do you want to search
in order to format the matched cells?

To post sample data you can use HTML Maker
