Instead of using a simple edit box, you can use the Rich Edit control (CRichEditCtrl if you want MFC).

Is all the functionality of a CEdit available in a CRichEditCtrl? I am modifying a program that has already been written arround CEdit, and dont really want to be going changing too much if I dont have to.

Basically yes. There may be small variations, but the easiest way to determine if they exist in the member functions you're using is to try and see... Or check in the functions description in MSDN...
I don't know exactly what does your code do with the CEdit, so I can't be more specific. You can hardly expect to toally replace an existing control with no work at all.
