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...

"The Report Viewer control and integrated report designer in VS 2008 are still based on the RDL 2005 format, and will be updated for the VS 2010 release to the RDL 2008 format."

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
