Dear Experts:

for the selected cells in a column (contiguous range) I would like to perform the following VBA Action.

If the macro hits a cell (of this selected range) which starts with a number, the macro is to bold the cell contents.

The cell contents are alphanumeric characters formatted as standard.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas
