How about
Code:
Sub harky()
   Dim Cl As Range
   Dim x As Long
   With Sheets("Sheet1")
      For Each Cl In .Range("I1", .Range("I" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
         x = InStr(1, Cl, "ERROR", vbTextCompare)
         If x > 0 Then Cl.Characters(x, 5).Font.Color = vbRed
      Next Cl
   End With
End Sub

In that case use
Code:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
   Dim Cl As Range
   Dim x As Long
   With Sheets("Sheet1")
      For Each Cl In .Range("I1", .Range("I" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
         x = InStr(1, Cl, "ERROR", vbTextCompare)
         If x > 0 Then Cl.Characters(x, 5).Font.Color = vbRed
      Next Cl
   End With
End Sub
and put it in the ThisWorkbook module

Hi, i just notice the code,

If my column was highlighted in black at the beginning. it will show this BUT
I
Status
ERROR Pls check the file

<tbody>
</tbody>



If i re-activate my exiting MACRO and re-fill the column again. It will highlight the whole text in red.
I
Status
ERROR Pls check the file

<tbody>
</tbody>

You're welcome & thanks for the feedback
