I have the following formula in a CR but it is igorning the CHR(10) and CHR(13) in the formula
DIM InputField AS STRING
DIM Increment AS NUMBER
DIM TempString AS STRING
DIM TempStringTwo AS STRING
DIM SpouseIDString AS STRING
 

IF NOT(ISNULL({GENERIC.spouse_id})) THEN
    SpouseIDString = ",   "&{GENERIC.spouse_id}
ELSE
    SpouseIDString = ""
End IF

InputField = {GENERIC.name}&"#"&{GENERIC.id_number}& SpouseIDString
Increment = 1

IF INSTR(InputField, "#") > 0 THEN
     TempString = InputField(1 TO INSTR(InputField, "#")-1)
ELSE
    TempString = InputField
END IF
 
IF INSTR(InputField, "#") > 0 THEN
    TempStringTwo= CHR(13)+CHR(10)+InputField(LENGTH(TempString) + 2 TO LENGTH(InputField))
ELSE
    TempStringTwo = ""
END IF

 
FORMULA = "{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1033{\fonttbl{\f0\fswiss\fcharset0 Times New Roman;}}" + "\viewkind4\uc1\pard\b\f0\fs20 " + TempString + "\b0 " + TempStringTwo

How do you do the NEWLINE in RTF?  You may need to add that string rather than using the Carriage Rturn - Line Feed.

Think there is a way to do this sans the RTF code? I am after having the first line bold then a second line that is not. crBOLD will not work in a formula

There is no way to do it with a single formula.

You can put an empty text box on the report and drag fields into it.  The fields can be formatted individually.

sorry for not getting back but there has been lot going on around here this month and last Any ways mlmcc indirectly did come up with the solution to this. I goggle something and ended up in expert-exchange and mlmcc had applied a technique of using html tag to that problem I in turn used the same technique for the solution to this problem.
