User Defined Function to format text Red in an Excel Formula
Posted on 2014-01-16
I'm looking for a way to format certain text within a formula to output as red.
For example, I have a heading with a date and title on the same line.
January 2013 ~ Report Title
The heading above would be created using a formula, and I can't get the Report Title text to format with red text.
The text would always be the same ("Report Title"), the formula is only needed because the date in the report changes.
How would you recomend this be done? What would a user defined function look like for this? I tried to play with some VB for this, but it's not working and I'm sure I'm way off track on what would be needed fro this.
An example of the current formula would be: =TEXT(TODAY(),"mmmm yyyy")&" ~ Report Title"
