    This isn't working for me. When i double click into a cell it won´t let me change color. Only for one cell at a time.

    Utter non sense. Why would I select each character when I can simply select the whole word in excel and change the color or font. Tools are supposed to make life easier not to complex the things. I was wondering that I can do it easily with the help of tools. There are more than 5 thousand cells for which I need to make the changes. There are three lines in a single cell and each line has different color. Do you want to select each character in more than 5 thousand cells?
