    Font Attributes in Concantenated strings (Access 97/2000)

    I would like to create a calculated field in a report that concantenates a series of fields, where some fields have different font attributes (such as the format for APA references). Something like this bold(Title_of_Book) & " " & italic(Publisher) & Date_Published. Any possibility? It needs to be a calculated expression, so the fields can't be in separate controls.

    You need a third party activeX control for this.
    FMS has one : Total Access Memo

    Thanks. I've really tried to avoid ActiveX just to keep things simple, but I will look into this.

    Otherwise, separate controls are you only option.
