Default Textbox Formatting

Does anyone know if it is possible to have different formatting in a single text box?

Something like:

First Statement Second Statement Third Statement

Thanks!!

I don't think this is possible. I looked online and don't find anything. The control is formatted using the toolbar, etc, but the text itself is not formattable.

Unless you use a rich text field... like this one. I am not sure how that would be implemented.

Thanks Mike.

There is a rich text box control activex control, but I couldn't get it to work. Common problem. See http://p2p.wrox.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=10894 for an older thread on this. There are a surprising number of after-market solutions available I found after doing a web search for "MS Access rich text control."

And they all want money!!

Perhaps I'll have to spend some time over the weekend developing a solution of my own.

Thanks again for your help,

Mike
