I have a paragraph table that has codes and text.  I want to be able to allow the user to enter in the paragraph and bold the necessary text at the vb end.  Can I use a regular text box and give them a bold button similar to word.

Can I do this and save it to sql server.  The paragraphs are used in a word merge.

Thanks

No, you will have to use a Richtext box

Then in code

With RTB1
  .SelBold = True  'changes selected text to bolded
End With

You can not mark only one word, and bold it. But, you can Bold whole text! Use code like this:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Text1.FontBold = True
End Sub

It's pretty easy, isn't it? (and it works in regular textbox!)
Best regards, Daky

IN an RTF box you can set individual words to bold. I have done this but sometimes (I dont know why) it get a bit flaky.

Use SelStart to find the start of the work/phrase you want bold. Use SelLength to select that word or phrase.

You can then use the SelBold command to set that selection to bold.

Good Luck
