SAS just pulls the contents of the cells. It does not care what fonts or colors you are using.
If you want to import metadata about fonts, colors or other text attributes that are applied to the contents of a cell then you will need to do something in Excel first to convert that into information that is stored in another cells.

Can we call the VB function in SAS to execute the excel sheet and import
As long as SAS is running on a Windows platform then you should be able to use SAS to execute any command you want. You can use one of the statements that runs commands (x, %sysexec, command) or use the PIPE filename engine.
