    I sometimes have to use a version of Excel which does not offer Conditional Formatting. However, i need to have the word "FEE" show as [Red] if entered into any cell within Column "A". (All other text will remain black).

    Anyone have any ideas? Can this be done with Custom Formatting?

    Thx.

    If you're willing to do a small concession to the way you input the text, here's a suggestion.

    Give the cells in columna A a Custom format equal to:
    0;-0;[Red]"Fee"

    and input the word Fee as 0 (zero).

    Hi
    Place this in your Worksheet_Change()
    It will change red if fee is entered anywhere in column A

    Tom

    Dim Search
    Dim Found
    ActiveSheet.Columns("A:A").Font.ColorIndex = 0
    With ActiveSheet.Range("a1:a1000")
    Set Search = .Find("Fee", LookIn:=xlValues)
    If Not Search Is Nothing Then
    Found = Search.Address
    Do
    Search.Font.ColorIndex = 3
    Set Search = .FindNext(Search)
    Loop While Not Search Is Nothing And Search.Address <> Found
    End If
    End With
