I have written a following macro -

For Each Cell In Selection
    Cell = Trim(Cell)
        If IsNumeric(Cell) = False Then
            If Cell <> "" Then
            MsgBox " not numeric value"
            End If
        End If
    Next Cell

But I want to change font colr of that cell which has no numeric value to red

wrong post

it should be

For Each Cell In Selection
    Cell = Trim(Cell)
        If IsNumeric(Cell) = False Then
            If Cell <> "" Then
            MsgBox " not numeric value"
            End If
       else
            cell.select
            Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 3
        End If

Wrong - It does not work. In place of MsgBox " not numeric value" I should be able to give red colour to the font of the cell.

            If Cell <> "" Then
            cell.select
            Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 3

i suggest u cud do it other than from code.
use conditional formatting where u can specify the condition Isnumeric for a range...and say wat to do when not satisfied.

this is unless u want to do it from code itself.

u'll find this in format->conditional formatting
