In Word versions up to 2003, you can select the part of the text, go to
Format > Font > Text Effects, and select "blinking background". I don't have
an older version of Excel any more, so I don't know whether it offered the
same effect.

The text effects were removed from Office 2007 programs, partly because
they're so annoying.

The short answer is no.
In Word 2003 and earlier you can format > font > ext teffects > blinking
background, which is as near as Word will allow.
In Word 2007 the command seems to have been removed from the dialog, but you
can still add the effect by macro

Sub Blink()
Selection.Font.Animation = wdAnimationBlinkingBackground
End Sub

Yes, in Word, go Ctrl+D, or go Format then Font, go to special effects and
you can choose blinking background

What about all the other text effects? Las Vegas lights, marching ants, etc?
I looked in the new, frustratingly inane, talking help, and it referred to
"text effects" as the emboss, strikethrough dialogue - referring to a
different set of options under the name of what is no longer available,
rather than just saying "we removed this functionality"?
