I purchased Office Home and Student and am unable to see a record found by a search. The record numbers on my copy of Excel are solid black on a light grey background. Upon locating a record, the found record is "bolded" or "highlighted" in a grey color that is so close to the grey of adjacent records that I am unable to see it without close viewing of the screen.
To date, two Microsoft techs and all Canadian Geek Squad reps have been unable to correct this oddity.
BTW, my previous owned edition of Excel displayed a "found" record in a color different from surrounding records. Spotting the record was not difficult.
