How to get Backcolor of some text changed in Crystal Reports

Hi experts,
I'm using VS2005 and Crystal Reports 10 for my project. I send RichTextBox (Rtf) contents to CR and all seems OK with exception of two things.

1) If I change Backcolor of certain parts of the Rtf text that doesn't get reflected in the report, i.e. the report Backcolor for that portion of text is normal/white.

2) Also, I place page breaks in my Rtf but that too doesn't get actioned.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
     Michael

Thanks habibb.
I read both articles but couldn't find any reference to the Backcolor tag.
I'll try to find out whether it's supported in Version 11.

To the best of my knowledge Crystal hasn't changed the tags supported in either RTF or HTML interpretation.  Crystal is pretty good at updating the links or providing new links to show the updates.

Does that basically mean that (using Crystal Reports) it's not possible to implement even a workaround for the Backcolor?

I'm just a bit surprised that seeing Font color feature was implemented but Backcolor not, considering those functions (in my opinion) would be of similar complexity and the fact that Crystal Reports is so widely used!!!

Any suggestions as to what else I can do, i.e. what other package/solution offers that flexibility?

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

No ideas on other tools.

As far as a workaround, are you trying to change th eentire field or just some text in the field?

That is what I figured.  I don't think there is a workaround to support that idea.
