When printing in QReports I want to make a field appear in normal text, underlined or bold depending on the value of another field in the table (not printed out in the report).

Anyone give me any pointers please.

Dear Doug  
 
The one that you want to do, is to change the source to be printed of a certain field of a table, when other field any has a certain value.  
If it goes only this, it is easy. You should make the following:  
1 - it tests the value of the field that will determine the type of the source used in the impression.  
2 - of acôrdo with the found value, the source of the variable of the field to be printed, it will assume the following wanted value.  
Use the following code in its program:  
 
VarFonte -> Variable to be tested to determine the impression source.  
VarPrint -> Variable to be printed.  
 
if VarFonte=1 Then  
  VarPrint.Font.Style := [] {normal Impression}  
else if VarFonte=1 Then  
  VarPrint.Font.Style:=[fsBold] {Impression in Bold}  
else if VarFonte=2Then  
  VarPrint.Font.Style:=[fsUnderline]; {Impression Underline}  
   
I believe that this solves its problem.

You need to have a look at the BeforePrint event for the band that contains the control you wish to change and add something like this to it.

if table1.fieldbyname('A String Field').Value='Male' then
begin
  qrlabelSex.Font.Style:=[fsBold,dsUnderline];
end
else
begin
  qrlabelSex.Font.Style:=[fsNormal];
end;
