Access 2007 Forms: Changing the font size of a form field through a command button

Hello, I have a field on my form which displays a fairly large amount of text.  Some users have trouble with vision and would like to be able to read it more clearly.  Is there a way to have a button to increase or decrease the font size of a form field (similar to in word or something)?  It would also be nice if the change is conserved for the next record to be reviewed.

I'd greatly appreciate anyone's input.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Why would you go this route rather than using the built-in (to Windows) accessibility tools, such as magnifier?

To do what you want, you just need to tweak the FontSize property of the text box control.
