Questions:

I would like to apply conditional formatting to highlight cell that contain text (not number), is there a way of doing this?

How to&Answers:

For your conditional formatting formula, you can use: =isnumber(0+A1) assuming A1 is your cell that you are testing.

The 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.

Answer:

You might use a Conditional Formatting formula rule of:

=ISTEXT(A1)  

where the cell is non numeric or contains text.

Answer:

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.
