    font color in table (2000/XP)

    Is there a way to change the font color of just a few words in an Access table without changing the entire table?

    Thanks

    Thank you - I didn't think this was an option but I thought I would try.

    No, you can only set font characteristics for an entire table. But you don't want end users to edit a table directly, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    In a form, you can set font characteristics for each control individually, but it will still hold for all text in that control.

    The question of how to format individual words in a field has come up repeatedly in this forum. Access just doesn't have that ability - it is not a word processor. You could insert the ActiveX Microsoft Rich Textbox Control on a form or report, but it isn't easy to handle.
