    Hello,
    I have a large spreadsheet that has dynamic cells being fed by a pricing engine. I need to monitor when a price changes. How can i make the cell highlight everytime a price ticks so that i can immediately see the change.

    regards,

    i can't upload a set up dummy data b/c it will just look like a list of prices. in my actual spreadsheet the prices change (tick) on a minute by minute or even second by second basis. there are so many rows that when a price changes it is not obvious to me. i need the cells to flash or highlight when there is a change ( a price ticking) in that cell.

    the spreadsheet is being fed so that the prices change automatically, fyi.

    regards
