    VB Font Formatting (Access 97)

    I know it is possible, but can not seem to find the correct coding......

    In the SendObject, I know:
    " & vbCr & " Can be used for a hard return
    " & vbTab & " Can be used to tab items over

    Both used together allows a cerntain amount of formatting within the "SendObject", however what is the correct code to make a certain part of the message BOLD?

    I don't think you can do that. I have my Outlook set to send e-mail in HTML format by default, but nevertheless, SendObject creates a plain text message (so bold is not even a possibility.)

    I would have agreed with you yesterday. However, I just received an e-mail from a form I completed here at work that has certain items BOLD. (Passwords).
    I contacted the LAN ADMIN, however the person who designed the form is no longer an employee. Then due to security, they are unable to release any codes. All they could tell me is that there is code within the "SendObject" that makes a field that is sent BOLD.

    If I find it, I will let you know!

    I still don't think it is possible to send formatted text using SendObject. It is possible to create e-mail messages using Automation (controlling Outlook from Access); you can then put text with HTML tags such as and in the HTMLBody property of the message.
