    formatting fill-in fields (office 2003)

    When inserting fill-in fields, is there a way to make the field result bold? The only way I can see how to do it is to open the template after it has been created, then make the fill-in fields bold and re-saving the template.

    Hi jpeterson72,

    You can make the output bold by coding the field as:
    {FILLIN Input * Charformat}
    Note that the 'F' is bolded.

    OK, that works. But is there any way to set this up when you first insert the fill-in field? or do you just have to edit the field in the document itself?

    Hi jpeterson72,

    If you use Insert|Field to create the field, then you'd have to edit the field afterwards, since the most you can achieve this way is {FILLIN "Prompt" *Charformat}, plus the o andor d switches if you use them - but you can't make the 'F' bold.

    Probably the easiest way to do the job is to press Ctrl-F9 to create an empty pair of field braces (ie '{ }') then type the 'FILLIN "Prompt" *Charformat' string,plus the o andor d switches if you use them, into it an make the 'F' bold, all in one pass, then press F9 to update the field.
    Cheers,
