Format part of a text box

P: 14
Hi everyone,

Does ACCESS allows you to format part of a text in a text box i.e. to apply bold to some words rather than applying to the entire Text box. Thanks for your help.

For v97 thru v2003, Stephen Lebans has an ActiveX controls that allows the use of Rich Text Format (RTF )

http://www.lebans.com/richtext.htm


Access 2007 has the native ability to use RTF; from Allen Browne's site:

For the first time, you can format text a text box: bold, italics, bulleted lists, fonts, colors, etc. Use for comments, merge letter reports, ...

Applies to text boxes that are unbound, bound to an expression, or bound to a Memo field that has the Text Format property set to Rich Text (in table design.)
This is offered "as is!" Don't have v2007 and never found the need to use the former, but Stephen does good work.
