How do I highlight search results

P: 2
I have a query that will return any records that contains some word, displayed as a report. It works perfectly, but I'd like to be able to have Access automatically highlight the word so that when you are searching you can identify where the word is quickly. Anybody have any ideas? I'd like to be able to do this in both reports and forms, but reports are more important.

Thanks in advance!!

You can highlight a textbox in forms using conditional formatting but you cannot do anything to the individual parts of the text within the textbox which is what I think you are asking.
