formatting using VBA

I had this question after viewing How to edit the macro code to limit the number of characters when creating worksheet tab name.

In the attached file, I have VBA code that I would like to add formatting as well.

1) Bolding the titles I have bolded in the attached (ignore the red, i just did that so it's easy to find)
2) wrap text for the title rows with longer titles ("Customer Totals" and "Contract adjustment")
3) Add top border to row with "Customer Totals".

Is there a way to do this in VBA?

if not, record a macro as you do the formatting manually and it can then be merged into your code
