Use this macro:
Sub Demo()

    Dim ws As Worksheet

    For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        With ws
            If .Name <> "Invoice Sheet" And .Name <> "Summary Sheet" Then
                .Range("A:A").Interior.Color = vbRed    ' or whatever formatting you want
                .Range("D:D").Interior.Color = vbGreen    ' or whatever formatting you want
                .Range("I:I").Interior.Color = vbCyan    ' or whatever formatting you want
                .Range("L:L").Interior.Color = vbBlue    ' or whatever formatting you want
            End If
        End With
    Next

End Sub

I get the following runtime error 1004 method range of object _worksheet failed on  .Range("A").NumberFormat = "@"

Code:
Sub Demo()

    Dim ws As Worksheet

    For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        With ws
            If .Name <> "Invoice Sheet" And .Name <> "Summary Sheet" Then
                .Range("A").NumberFormat = "@"
                .Range("D").NumberFormat = "@"
                .Range("L").NumberFormat = "@"
            End If
        End With
    Next

End Sub
