How to transfer 5 text boxes to 1 RTFbox and 1 of them in Italic?

I need to select a text in RTF text box in order to afterwards make that selection in italic.
My idea is to have like 5 text boxes, all will be toghether, but box number 3 will be italic.
Each time I click Insert button, an RTF box will have Box1 & box2 & box3... but number 3 is in italic.
Anyone can help me?

This is the code I've tried:

Private Sub Insert_Click()
italicfinder$ = txt3.Text
newline$ = Chr(13) + Chr(10)
frmMain.rtfBox.Text = frmMain.rtfBox.Text & txt2.Text & "." & txt3.Text & txt4.Text & txt5.Text & newline$
Dim foundpos As Integer
foundpos = frmMain.rtfBox.Find(italicfinder$, , , rtfWholeWord)
If foundpos <> -1 Then
frmMain.rtfRefs.Span " ", True, True
frmMain.rtfRefs.SelBold = True
MsgBox "Not found"
End If
End Sub

This doesn't work.
Maybe there is another way to have those in the RTFBox and each time i click insert more will go into the new line (always with textbox 3 italic)

Thanks to everyone!

When adding txt3.Text to the rtfBox put a space infront and behind it if you are going to use rtfWholeWord option.

My RichTextBox is called Rich
Text1, text2, text3, text4, text5 are the textBoxes
I use seltext, so i dont erase the old format..
Try it:

Dim n As Integer
Rich.SelStart = Len(Rich.Text)
Rich.SelText = Text1 & Text2 & "."
n = Len(Rich.Text)
Rich.SelStart = n
Rich.SelText = Text3 & Text4 & Text5 & vbCrLf

Rich.SelStart = n
Rich.SelLength = Len(Text3)
Rich.SelItalic = True
Rich.SelLength = 0 'quit this line if yo want text3 selected

It works perfectly.
I've tried an implementation like this one before but I didn't get it to work. Thank you!
