How can I highlight keywords in a report.

P: 1
I'm using a form with a textbox that user's enter a keyword to search. The form runs a query that searches for the keyword and displays the results in a report. Is there anyway to get the keyword that the user entered to show up highlighted or show up in bold text in the report? I'm using Access 2002.

Can't be done in an Access report, you can't have multiple formats in the same field. Even if you were to seperate them into different fields the positioning would be a pain.

I suppose you could automate it to word and then edit it there.

As indicated by Rabbit, this cannot be done. The best you could probably do would be to indicated the Number of occurrences and the character positions of the Keyword within the Report..
