    Highligted words without vba

    Hi!
    Can we find yellow colored highlighted words only, without vba?
    Because there are red colored highlighted words also.

    You can specify highlighting as a Find parameter, but that will find all highlighting, not just a specific highlight colour. The same would be true of a macro, which could only differentiate by testing the highlight colours of each found string - just as you'd need to do without a macro.

    I very much doubt Microsoft sees anything posted in these forums.

    As noted, you can Find the highlight attribute, but not a particular color of highlight.

    However, if you set up different character styles to apply different colors of shading, you can then Find by the character style name.
