When you work in a Microsoft Excel worksheet, you may want to make the active item bold so that it is easier to read. This article contains a sample Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications macro that makes the font of the current row bold.
The example below uses the worksheet's SelectionChange event to change the font style of the current row. Each time that you make a new selection on the worksheet, the entire row that contains the selection becomes bold.
NOTE: When you select a range that contains more than one row, only the row containing the active cell becomes bold.
