You could use this macro

Sub test()
  Selection.SpecialCells(xlFormulas).Select
    With Selection.Interior
      .ColorIndex = 6
      .Pattern = xlSolid
    End With
  Range("A1").Activate
End Sub

Copy/paste this UDF to a general module in your workbook.

Function IsFormula(cell)
    Application.Volatile
    IsFormula = cell.HasFormula
End Function


CF>Formula is:  =IsFormula(A1)

Pick a Pattern from the Format button.

Finding a Median
I'm trying to write a query that will return a median for various values taken from a previous query. I've seen some suggestions in my searching, but I haven't been able to get them working. They are also all from before 2003 and refer to Access 97 and 2000. Has any functionality been added to 2003 for this? Or is there a non- code-based way to do it? I've seen it suggested to write a code to open the query, sort it, find the total number of records, divide it in half, then seek out the middle record using that value. I'm still very green when it comes to code, though...

Copying Formulas to rows
Hi All, I have created a book which has various formulas accross a row which are all worked out from figures in that row. But I cant figure how to make the whole sheet use these forumlas, i.e. when i start typing info on row 2 it uses the same formulas as on row 1. The only way I have worked out so far to do this is to copy and paste each row, but this is time consuming and im sure there must be a quicker way?

How do I find data from a list (or table) and insert it in a row?
I used to use a spreadsheet program (2 years ago) that allowed me to lookup an item and insert it into the worksheet. I know the program was at least a year old at that time (2002).

Does the data go on one worksheet and then get referenced and inserted into the list of another worksheet? If so, how? I can't seem to get any answers by reading books on the subject.
