2. from the select the sheet name containing the table. ( We have it in Sheet 2 )
3. Then we select “SelectionChange” action from the

4. Write this code:
If Not Intersect(ActiveCell, Range(“C8:E9999”)) Is Nothing Then
Range(“A1”).Value = Target.Row

End If

6. Now we need to add a rule in the “Manage Roles” in “Conditional Formatting” from the Excel Menu. Here is how to Open it.

7. Select the “” then add new Rule, Follow the Image showing the steps to do that. Once we finish it should work fine.

Now, when the user click any cell in the Table the Row will change it’s color (Format) as we set it.
