"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.

Here are the steps:
Right-click on the field you with to format with the RED option.
Select Format Field.
Click on the Font tab.
Where the Color drop-down list is, to the right, there is an X-2 button. Click that. The Formula Workshop will open up.
