Keep formatting and custom formulas.

I have a couple of arrays of cells that have two different text formats and are being put into the same relative cell via "=A1&B1" but "A1" is bold and "B1" is not. I want to keep the bold on "A1" and keep "B1" not bold. Can someone help me accomplish this if it is possible with a custom function (prefered) or some other means?

You cannot do this using regular formulae. You will need code to do this.

For example, if A1 is bold, B1 is regular and C1 = A1 & B1, then try

<font face=Courier New><SPAN style="color:#00007F">Sub</SPAN> Test()<br>    <SPAN style="color:#00007F">With</SPAN> Range("C1")<br>        .Value = Range("A1").Value & Range("B1").Value<br>        .Characters(Start:=1, Length:=Len(Range("A1").Value)).Font.Bold = <SPAN style="color:#00007F">True</SPAN><br>    <SPAN style="color:#00007F">End</SPAN> <SPAN style="color:#00007F">With</SPAN><br><SPAN style="color:#00007F">End</SPAN> <SPAN style="color:#00007F">Sub</SPAN><br></FONT>
