Conditional Formatting & the Bold

P: n/a
I have a form where the conditional formatting is set on some fields
to bold if certain conditions are met. However, when the conditions
are met some of the data that is to bold is either not showing or only
part of the data in the field displays (i.e. it will display the last
name but not the first name or it will display neither).

When the conditional formatting is removed it displays all the data as
it should be display so the data IS being found and it CAN be
displayed, just not while the conditions of the conditional formatting
is initiated.

Anyone know anything about what could cause or resolve this????

thanks

FAI, I fudged with the issue for a while and discovered that the
Conditional Formatting has limitations when attached to a text box
that has the ability to grow or shrink. If anyone knows how to get
around this I would appreciate it. Regardless, once I changed the
text box so that it didn't have to grow or shrink it solved the
problem however it also added space between each row where the extra
room wasn't needed. Again, any other solution would be appreciated.

P.S. It was on a "report" not a "form" as the original post
indicated.

Since you now state that your issue is with a Report not a Form then
Conditional Formatting is not required. Simply use the Format event of
the relevant section to check your criteria and set the control(s) props
as desired.
