The code below can be called like this:

TextFormat 1,"A1:G17"

Enjoy!
Sub TextFormat(sheetNumber, cells)
	Dim arr()
         Dim sheet, oRange
         On Error Resume Next
	arr = Split(cells,":",-1,1)
	Set sheet = xls_app.ActiveWorkBook.Worksheets(sheetNumber)
	If arr(0) = arr(1) Then
		Set oRange = sheet.Range(arr(0))
	Else
		Set oRange = sheet.Range(arr(0), arr(1))
	End If
	oRange.NumberFormat = "@"
         Set sheet = nothing
         Set oRange = nothing
End Sub
