My application has a DBRichEdit control. How do I select individual words that I want to highlight in bold or italics (ie change the word/s I have selected with the mouse to a different font.style).

Thanks
JE

To select words in RichEdit or DBRichEdit . You can use  SelStart and SelLength properties.
For Example :  
 DBRichEdit.SelStart := 10;
 DBRichEdit.SelLength := 5;
If you want to know what text that display in RichEdit window. You can you  Lines,Text properties.
Example to highlight  Hello word in DBRichEdit.
 I := Pos('Hello',DBRichEdit1.Text);
 If I > 0 then
Begin
    DBRichEdit1.SelStart := I;
    DBRichEdit1.SelLength := Length('Hello');
    DBRichEdit1.SelAttributes.Style := [fsBold];
End;
