I would like to apply conditional formatting to highlight cell that contain text (not number), is there a way of doing this?
For your conditional formatting formula, you can use:
A1 is your cell that you are testing.
0+ bit will attempt to add 0 to the contents of A1, which will convert the contents to a number, even if it’s a number stored as text.
You might use a Conditional Formatting formula rule of:
where the cell is non numeric or contains text.
Use Format Cell Value NOT BETWEEN (Any number range). Excel will format all the text cells as they’re not numbers so do not fall into the value range.
