I created a dropdown list with values and assigned them to one of the columns in a table.

When I changed a few, then changed the name of items in the list and removed some I accidentally did some key combination somewhere around Ctrl+Z or Ctrl+Y and Excel highlighted cells in the table that had a value not on the list.

The highlighting looks like a red oval around each such cell. How can I toggle it on and off?
