Database surrogate (complete madness in millions of xls files):
X1 =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(value;range;2;0)));"";VLOOKUP(value;range;2;0))
Y1 =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(value;range;3;0)));"";VLOOKUP(value;range;3;0))
Z1 =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(value;range;4;0)));"";VLOOKUP(value;range;4;0))
Performs 3 lookups at least. If the test for error is negative then it 
performs 6 lookups to find the exact same row.

Objects overkill:

This one does not even have any data nor formulas:
Ctrl+Space (select entire column)
Shift+<right arrow> x4 (expand 4 columns to the right)
Choose "Yellow", [OK]
Get a cup of tea.
killall soffice.bin
