Formating RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to format data type memo by only selecting certain sentence to be bold. When i do highlight the sentences that i want  bold, the whole field box gets bold. Is there a conditioning format or expression control i must create- in order to select some sentences to be bold in the field?

    Thanks

    Please follow the steps:

    1. Open your table in Design view.

    2. Click on your memo field.

    3. In the Field Properties section select TextFormat property and change it's value to Rich Text (it is Plain Text by default)

    4. Save the table design.

  • Assuming you are using Access 2007 or 2010, open your table in design view, select the memo field, and make sure the Text Format property (in the lower pane of table design), is set to Rich Text. You should then be able to format part of the field differently than the rest.

    You can't do this in earlier versions.
