Sub BoldHighHours()
	Dim xRg As Range

	Dim xAddress As String
	Dim xUpdate As Boolean
	On Error Resume Next
	xAddress                    = Application.ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Address
	Set xRg                     = Application.InputBox("Please select a range", "Kutools for Excel", xAddress, , , , , 8)
	Set xRg                     = Application.Intersect(xRg, ActiveSheet.UsedRange)
	If xRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
		xUpdate                    = Application.ScreenUpdating
		Application.ScreenUpdating = False
		For Each xCell In xRg
			If VBA.IsNumeric(xCell.Value) Then _
			xCell.Font.Bold = (xCell.Value > 90)
		Next
		Application.ScreenUpdating = xUpdate
