    Can you change the size and font of text appearing in a message box?

    As far as I know, the only options you have, are:
    <UL><LI>Modify the Message Box item in the Appearance tab of Display Properties. This is a Windows-wide setting and it applies only to you, not your users.
    <LI>Create your own message box form.[/list]There may be a way of modifying the standard message box with Windows API calls, but I don't know how to do that.

    You can in Access. In 97 it works in both code and macros, in 2000, it only works in macros, and that is using the @ symbol to sperate 'sections' of your message, which changes the size and boldness of the text within each message.

    Other then that, you'd have to create your own message box through API's.
