Default Changing between bold and plain text in a text box

I'm trying to change between bold and plain text within a single text box. The text box captures various info from the database and then puts these into sections ie:- "New Parts Required:" which I want in bold, and then a list of these new parts which would be in plain text.
Any help would be great.

I don't think this can be done.

What you can do is to place a label in bold with "New Parts Required:" and then just make it visible when you need it, and populate the text box with plain text.

I know that this is a way of altering the bold and plain text. It's just that I am never sure if "New Parts Required:" will be a section on the report. If it isn't it isn't included. There are alot of sections like this so don't want a string of IIf statements and a serious amout of nesting of statements.

Have been given advice on using RichText Object and been looking into this...

Any easier options would be great. have included a code snippet to see if this makes the problem clearer to understand.

  If (Len(nam) > 0) Then
      nam = "NEW PARTS REQUIRED: " & nam & "."
  End If
Here I want "NEW PARTS REQUIRED: " to be in bold and the rest of nam to be plain...
