bold text of referenced cell show in formula cell



I have a VLookup formula to another worksheet, but I need the bold text of
the referenced cells to show up as bold in the formula cell.

I understand you can do that with Conditional formating if the data is in
the same worksheet, but my data is in a different worksheet and it gives me
an error.

You can refer to another sheet for CF if you define a name for a cell on
other the sheet.

i.e. defined name "apple" refers to Sheet2A1

On Sheet1 in B2 CF>Formula is: =B2=apple cannot CF the results of a formula based upon just whether
or not the source or part of the source is Bold.

You can only CF on the value of the source cell.
