Change a word in a text sentence to italic font

P: 2
Greetings all..

I hope you guys can help me with this.
I've been doing a database for my microbiology labs, but having difficulties to change a species name into italic font.
Here's what I want to do:

Mycobacterium tuberculosis NOT isolated

Can anybody please help me with this so that ONLY "Mycobacterium tuberculosis" appear in italic font in database form, and report.

Thanx

To the best of my knowledge, Italics is an all inclusive deal whereas all the Text appears in Italics or all of it does not. What you are requesting, however, may be able to be accomplished via a 3rd Party ActiveX Control, something like the Rich Text Box.

As ADezii said, you'll need RTF capability to format part of a text field (as opposed to the entire text field) and only Access 2007 has a native RTF option for text fields. Otherwise you'll need to use some custom code, and Stephen Leban is the only one I know that has posted such code.

Lebans Rich Text Hack

The only other workaround would be splitting your field into multiple parts, i.e.
textbox1 = Mycobacterium tuberculosis

and

textbox2 = NOT isolated

with textbox1 formatted to display in Italics.
