Google Sheets--Highlighitng Single Words Within Cells

Specs: Windows 10
A few years ago, I came across this posting from March 2010 regarding using a macro to highlight single words within a cell in Excel. I found it to be very helpful and have been using the macro on a regular basis since. https://www.computing.net/answers/o...

Now I'm wondering: Does anyone know of a way to do this same thing in Google sheets? Thank you!

So that your question isn't simply ignored, I'll toss this out:

The best I can offer is that I assume that your requirements can be met with Google Apps Script but I do not know how to write code in that language (yet). I don't know if there are any forum members that do, since Sheets questions don't come up very often.

I don't use Sheets to any great extent but I'll play around a bit and see what I can do.

If this is a time sensitive requirement, I suggest that you search for a forum that is dedicated to Google Apps Scripts and see if you can find help there.

If you do get an answer to your question (either code that works or "No, it can not be done") please come back and post the link to your thread so that we can use it as a reference.
