Characters Object (Excel)
Published: July 16, 2012
Represents characters in an object that contains text.
The following example adds text to cell B1 and then makes the second word bold.
With Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("B1") .Value = "New Title" .Characters(5, 5).Font.Bold = True End With
The Characters method is necessary only when you need to change some of an object’s text without affecting the rest (you cannot use the Characters method to format a portion of the text if the object doesn’t support rich text). To change all the text at the same time, you can usually apply the appropriate method or property directly to the object. The following example formats the contents of cell A5 as italic.
