1. Adapt the following for multi-colored font in a cell

Sub CellFont()
With ActiveCell.Characters(Start:=1, length:=3).Font
.ColorIndex = 3
.Bold = True
.Underline = True
End With
With ActiveCell.Characters(Start:=4, length:=3).Font
.Superscript = True
.ColorIndex = 5
End With
End Sub

2. Enter a bullet using ALT + 0149(enter via the number pad...not regular
number keys).....Wingdings font yields some interesting bullets.....open Char
Map to view.

It can't be done with a worksheet function. Functions can return a value (e.g,
a number or some text) and then that entire value is formatted according the
cell's formatting specifications. You can't format parts of a cell if the cell
contains a formula.

It would be nice, but it can't be done.
