I am having issues with highlighting certain words in a range of cells containing the phrase "intervention plan".

Basically if the cell contains the word, it needs to come up in red and bold.

Anyone help?!

You have to use conditional format and use a formula

Say this value is in column A

Then

Select Column A

Goto Conditional Formatting

Enter this formula
=IF(ISERROR(FIND("intervention plan", A1,1)), FALSE, TRUE)

Click on format in the conditional formatting dialog box and choose color and make the font bold
