cboQuickSearch Font Size

I have a QuickSearch combo in the form header.  When the record is found the name is shown in the header with the font being the same size as the combo drop down.  What I would like is for the name to be displayed in a much larger font and style. Would I would need another header textbox to display this larger size? and the after update procedure?

you can do it in  design view of the form, however if you want to make it dynamic you can set the fontsize

Thanks for the reply...
If I use me.cboQuickSearch.fontsize=16
the text does increase but stays large on selecting a different record.

If I use a new textbox> me.Text22.fontsize=16       it does not get populated.

I really appreciate your help on this - sorry I'm not more 'saavy'.
We're almost there....Text22 is now showing  ID number and not the name.
Don't know if this helps but.......RowSource for cboQuickSearch is:
SELECT tblClients.ClientID, [LastName] & ", " & [FirstName] AS Name, tblClients.[FirstName], tblClients.[LastName] FROM tblClients ORDER BY [LastName] & ", " & [FirstName];

Please let me know if I should close this out and open another question to get this resolved.  Thanks
