mark text in excell BOLD, italic or something else


Recommended Posts



I have a excell sheet with a lot of cells with numbers.

My macro copy a number and uses the number on a website.

it goes back to excell and copy next number.


How do I in the excell sheet mark the just copied number ex. BOLD, so that this number is bold in excell (I can then see that this number has been "used")?


I thought it was a text command, but did not find any command matching.

You can bold the selected cell in Excel by typing Ctrl-b.
In a macro, the command would be
Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <CTRLD>b<CTRLU>

However, in my version of Excel, bolding a cell clears the value in the clipboard.  So bold it BEFORE you copy it to the clipboard, not after.
