I want the [required] field to be read to condition  the field [Course].

So if the field [required] ="Y" then [course] should be BOLDED else it should be crregular

REQUIRED            COURSE                 FORMULACOURSE
Y                           English                    Enlgish bolded
N                           Spanish                   Spanish not bolded
Y                           French                     French Bolded

    Oh I forgot, THis should be in a formula (not in the formatting window)  cause I want to add the conditioned field into a crosstab

    You can try this idea.  You will still have to set some formatting on the field in the cross tab

    "<b>" & {YourField} & "</b>"

    You can then format the field in the paragraph tab to use HTML interpretation
