Try using a RichTextBox. Here's a sample code:

jppinto
Private Sub Form_Load()
 RTB.SelStart = 4
 RTB.SelLength = 4
 RTB.SelBold = True
 RTB.SelStart = Len(RTB.Text)
End Sub

Open in new window

There is no such a control in Rdlc..
But with a textBox You cannot do that.  A Textbox has one Font property that applies to
all of the text.
What Kind Of text do you want to pass in your report...

I found when using the rdlc in VS2008 I could not bold but using the rdl from SSRS 2008 it has the capability so went that direction
