I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

Do you mean for the actual attachment itself, or the related label that gets created?  Typically when you add an attachment to a form, you get a label, and an image object.  If you mean the label, just click on it and bring up the property sheet to adjust the font attributes.  If you mean the image, then I don't understand what you are looking for.

Sorry I mean what is displayed in the attachment field on the form.  If there is one attachment there is paper clip and (1).  On my computer the paper clip and (1) font is Calibri 11 and I want to change to Arial 9 like the other text boxes on the form.

Could you upload a small sample of the database so we can see this better.  You are talking about a form you created, right, not a report?  And what type of form is it?  And I assume this is tied to a table with an Attachment type column?  An example would help a lot...

Attached is a screenshot where the attachment column font is Calibri and the other columns are Arial.  I would like all
the fonts to be Arial.

After playing around with this a bit, and doing a small amount of research, it doesn't seem that you can change that.  Not sure if there is some global setting that you could change, but I couldn't find it.  So it either isn't changeable, or I just can't find it, sorry.

Ok thanks.  I saw something about changing a default font for Access 2010 in the registry.  May be coming from there but haven't tried.  Not a big deal just kind of annoying.

yes,
Interesting, ...you can change the font (on the Home tab) and all the fields change "Except" for the attachment...
:-O
